Sick as my Dog

Chris and I just got back from the emergency animal hospital, where Charlie still is. He hasn't been able to hold down food for the past week, and last night he was up all night puking on every piece of rug and carpet we have in our house. Chris was on vomit detail until midnight. I cleaned up everything afterwards. Charlie was super tired this morning, and we called our vet to get his test results from yesterday. He said we should get Charlie an ultrasound. So right about now he's getting an ultrasound and some I.V. fluids. I'm exhausted all around, from staying up all night and worrying. I've been to the vet three times this week. They don't know what's wrong with him. That's the worst part. That and seeing him so sad and sleepy. We do have a pretty good method for cleaning up the puke, though.

We're both stressed and tired. The house smells slightly of bile. I want to get some sleep.

I Have a Paper Cutter

Hello there world. Been a while. I thought I would take a break from reading The Onion and write a little note to the internets, my best friend!

Today we cleaned out the basement. We borrowed John's truck and sent a lot of stuff to Goodwill, stuff such as rugs and lampshades. Truly, it was time. Also I broke down all the cardboard boxes, many of which were covered with mildew and mold. But it looks good down there, my friends, it looks really good down in the basement.

Life news:

Class begins on Monday, 9 in the morning. I'm taking Life Painting, Ceramics, Pilates (!), and DIgital Photography. I'm getting really excited about Ceramics, because the last time I did any ceramics was in high school. I'm really into Community College. It is inexpensive! It is convenient! It is educational!

Charlie continues to do what he does: sleeps, eats, wakes us up in the morning, takes up half the bed, makes monster poops. He has a nice new collar.

I feel sick from being in the basement, the dusty, moldy, mildewy basement.
