I had a meeting with the surgical coordinator on Friday.  Apparently, I have to stay away from the duppers for a few weeks after my surgery?  I don’t know how I’m going to be able to do that.  I look to these guys to give me emotional support and to keep my spirits up.  Now I can’t take naps with them or cuddle with them while I’m recuperating? I am going to be unhappy, and they are going to be unhappy and confused while they are segregated to a room I’m not in.  I am so bummed…

I haven’t done one of these posts in a few weeks!  I was at a horse show, and then last week we were running around all weekend long.  So, here goes-

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–June 7th Edition

A few weeks ago I ordered some glasses from Zenni.com.  I purchased a single vision pair for a little over $25, and a pair with progressive lenses for about $85.  They would have cost over $800 if I had purchased them from a brick and mortar optical store, and, frankly, I didn’t have the money for that.  I have purchased glasses online before, from another company, but Zenni was having a sale on lenses, so I thought, what the heck.  Either I just wasted $120 (with shipping), or I made the best purchase of the year.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–It’s Been a Busy Week!

Last weekend I was at a horse show, and I’ve been crazy busy at work trying to catch up, so things have been a little quiet here.  I also haven’t been feeling well; I have been in a lot more pain since I started physical therapy, and it’s sapping away my energy.  Some evenings it is painful to sit and read, so I end up going to bed early, but I haven’t been sleeping well for the same reason.  It’s extremely frustrating.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–RIP Vicktory Dog Ray

Another of the Vicktory Dogs has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  These dogs are game changers, and they proved that love and loyalty have nothing to do with breed or upbringing.  Victims of greed and cruelty, they have proven time and again that despite their reputation, they are capable of more love and possess more soul than most humans.  I worry that their stories will be forgotten as they are lost, one after another, but they will always hold a special place in my heart.  Rest in peace, Ray, you’ve more than earned your place in Heaven.
