The Yuckies

Okay, first of all, my dog is well on her way to getting cancer. Whenever the microwave is running she goes over and stands right in front of it until it's finished. She's really obsessed. It's weird.

I took Anja to the doctor this morning thinking she might have an ear infection. She was really crabby yesterday then her crabbies escalated to screaming in the evening. It was hooorrrribble getting her to sleep and she didn't finally fall asleep until about 9:30. I had given her some Tylenol earlier and I think it helped her sleep... but then even when she nursed at night she would cry a little bit, which is VERY unusual. I figured if she was still acting so weird in the morning I'd take her in--and she was, so I did. But I was wrong about my ear suspicion. Evidently she has some viral yuckies in her throat. He said if the best case scenario is if it stays at the three little sores that it is... if I'm not so lucky it'll turn into hundreds and last about a week. And there's nothing I can do for it! How sad. Is viral stuff contagious? Should I keep her away from her cousins? I forgot to ask about that.

Martin comes home tonight! But he won't be home for dinner because he's taking his boys to Pizza Hut for dinner to try and convince them to participate in something for him. Lure them in with pizza, that's the way to do it.

There isn't any other news except that Anja looks SO CUTE today--she is wearing a tiny pink poncho!! She's wearing these kind of antique floral pants with a white long sleeved shirt and this adorable little pink knit poncho with embroidered flowers on it. Except she's not wearing the poncho now because she wouldn't let me put it back on after her doctors appointment... she was kind of in hysterics after Dr. Beardmore touched her. She smiled at him when he came in, but then when he started doing his actual job she decided he wasn't so cool after all.

I made a good mix CD the other day with this amazing song on it that I don't know what it's called or who sings it... but I'll find out and I'll also post the playlist because I think it's pretty good, though a bit short. Only 13 tracks.

Viral stuff is contagious, but I don't know for how long!
