This entry is just random
The ear buds were a short-lived friendship. We exchanged them for a pair of wireless headphones, and I'm much happier.
Leaving for Minnesota tomorrow. Trying to not freak out.
Not sure how much internet connectivity I'll have up north, so I may not check in for another week.
Took Baby Reno in about his tender hind leg, and he has new meds. The vet suspects a tear in the ACL (in dogs, it's the CCL), so he will not be able to hike with me until he gets x-rays and we know for sure what is causing him pain. He is only gimpy some of the time, so I'm kind of convinced my poor puppy boy has arthritis, despite the condition of his ligaments. Reno HATES having his paws touched, so the vet had to muzzle him to check him out today. And I hate that we can't be in the exam room with our fur babies right now--he doesn't usually get so testy at the vet, but we're usually there to talk to him, hold him and calm him down.
My house is still a disaster area and I need to clean. I'm still feeling the migraine a bit, so my energy levels haven't picked back up yet.
I still have to pack. I should really bring some arts & crafts to do in addition to books, journal & writing books. I have a feeling we will be facing a lot of downtime this week & nothing will be open yet. I'm currently going through You're Weird: A Creative Journal for Misfits, Oddballs, and Anyone Else Who's Uniquely Awesome by Kate Peterson. It reminds me a bit of Keri Smith's Wreck This Journal series.
On that note, I still need to pair my new headphones with my computer (though my phone is paired right now & it works great!) and get the house to look like humans live here.
