Reality of a fire drill:

I only say “drill” because the building evacuated, the fire department came and they checked everything over and turned off the alarm. It could have been very real. I’ve been asked what my evacuation plan was should an emergency happen, while the nurses were interviewing me in my home after I’d gotten my family caregiver […]

Parrot Decals

I had the opportunity to order some decals for my car at a deeply discounted promotional price. I have been shopping for vinyls for the car and I knew these came out sometime ago in 2011. Parrot Decals! The “conures” look adorable on the Volkswagen and the “tracks” in two sets up to my 2 […]

leashes and harnesses

I’m having a very conflicted evening. The conflict is presumably internal and I am a hypocrite. I’m going to note that my dog is not dog lover, loves people and has very few friends. Her friend was attacked by another dog today. Lila had a friend at my last apartment complex named Chico and he […]

Stressed? No, Overwhelmed is more like it.

My dog came upstairs when we forgot to close the baby gate. Then she ran when we tried to get her to stay still. Oh god. She was on the couch with me this evening and tossing and turning and looking at me for help. Her knee was really killing her. I went to Petsmart […]
