Tell Me Something Good: 6/24/2011 Edition

Happily, things are starting to look up over here. 

1.  My beautiful dog is back home from the vet hospital and is acting more and more like herself again.  She's keeping food and water down, and we didn't find anything scary at her ultrasound yesterday.  (Praise God!)

2.  As it turns out, the air conditioning wasn't broken.  The electrician accidentally tripped the breaker to the AC when he was working on the breaker box.  I flipped the switch on and off, and now all is cool.

3.  I figured out a way to pay Paul without totally robbing Peter that doesn't involve going all Denzel Washington from John Q on our vet's ass.  (Hint:  July has 5 Fridays.  For us, that equals 5 pay periods.  That doesn't cover all the vet bills, but it helps.  Huzzah!)

4.  I've had more than my fair share of chocolate from Walmart in the past 24 hours.  Don't worry, I left some for you.  (A couple people have asked me about the dubious-looking brown substance on the self-portrait below.  It's chocolate, not poop, you weirdos.)


  1. So glad your girl is home and feeling better! We love those *extra* paycheck months, too.

    Family picnic today with 60+ people..do they make chocolate IVs??

  2. Yay! I'm so glad Raven is feeling better!

  3. Don't worry, I totally thought 'chocolate' and not 'poop.' :)
