One of those weeks...

Some days I just wonder what the universe is going to throw at me next.  I really need to stop wondering!  This week (and it's only Tuesday) brings:
  • Kendall needs her wisdom teeth removed.  All 4 are impacted.  I don't know why on earth I'm surprised.  Mine were impacted.  So were Don's.  It's taking all I have not to scare her with the few things I remember about having my wisdom teeth out, but Don is regaling in tales of how they had to chisel them out with a hammer.  She is completely freaked out now.  Thanks, honey!
  • Mia, while doing spectacular, still has crystals in her urine.  The vet called to tell me that the crystals that formed the stone in her bladder are gone.  Only to be replaced with another type of crystal.  So no treats.  Only her special diet food.  And frequent urine tests to determine if the crystals are going away or not.  This is in addition to the steriod shots, the oral steroids, the horse pill sized antibiotics & the Denamarin (which is supposed to keep her liver healthy).  My friend Doris has taken to calling her the Black Diamond, the most expensive dog on the planet.
  • We cancelled our planned trip to Tucson to visit UofA.  While I'd love to see my friend Jill & my uncle, now is not the time to be saddling my mom with my very co-dependent dog (who can't control her pee & pees wherever she happens to be when she's sleeping...lovely!) We'll be rescheduling it for sometime this summer.
  • The wind is blowing.  Like crazy!  And we all know that the wind just flat out blows the happy right out of me! Spring in Flagstaff is my least favorite time of year...and it hasn't even started!  Wait til I start complaining about the wind in April!
  • I am seriously behind on my #MARdailyphoto on our blog.  And I feel guilty.  But not guilty enough to remedy it.  I will get caught up.  I swear.
On the happy side:
  • I have read both The Hunger Games & it's sequel Catching Fire, in three days.  I'm in the middle of the third book, Mockingjay, which I hope to finish tonight.  I had no desire to read the books but find myself completely absorbed in them.  The thought of teenagers put into a ring to battle to the death just did NOT appeal to me.  Crazy, I know.  Yes, they are teenage books, but not so much that you can't see the validity of their plight & want them to succeed.  They are very chaste.  If they were adult novels, they would be filled with raunchiness, so it's been nice to just focus on the story.  The first book is my favorite.  We shall see how I feel about this last one.  It feels good to be sucked into books again.
  • I am heading to Vegas with my friend Kim in a few days.  Much rest & relaxation is in store for me! 
I will get out of my funk soon, I am sure.   Fresh ideas are popping into my head pretty routinely.  Between Mia, our tax bill (don't even go there), car repairs, wisdom teeth & daily life, I need a break.


  1. Have a great time in Vegas and just remember Sedona is coming up. Hang in there!! Kayla gets her wisdom teeth out on Thursday so I feel your pain. Should make for an interesting weekend. On the other hand.. almost finish with The Hunger Games book 1 and totally enjoying it. Kinda pushed into reading it but glad now. Have been told you have to read all 3 so glad to hear you are liking them. So I will be reading this weekend and babysitting. Vicki W

  2. Both my kids had wisdom teeth removed last year. Neither one of them thought it was horrendous and they were back in action in 2 days.

  3. Good thing you enjoyed that weekend so much huh? Audra

  4. Yep. Stop wondering. And get ready for Vegas! Yay for you!
