Remember that time I said my writing mojo was back… and then I missed ANOTHER morning of blogging?
Yeah. Me, too.
But here I am! I fully intended to write about my skin care favorites today but instead I’m going to make excuses and show you a sad & pathetic picture of my sweet baby Enzo.
Yesterday suuuucked. Every single thing I did had some kind of snag. I was anxious about the dogs’ vet appointment (which was a standard yearly checkup- nothing bad) and that made me super irritable about literally everything.
I made phone calls and was put on hold for over 20 minutes. I made phone calls and was denied information (that they’d freely shared with me in the past). I didn’t get a real lunch. One of my bffs had to book her spin bike across the room because all the spots near me were filled. (Absolute first world problems- I know.) And in the evening I had to wait an additional 45 minutes for our take-out food.
And in between all that, my dogs had that vet appointment. And Enzo walked away looking like this:
I know. It freakin kills me, too. My poor sweet boy had a bad reaction to the Lyme vaccine and he got hives all over his poor little face. And back. And paws.
Fortunately his bad reaction (swelling, vomiting) began in the vet’s parking lot and they gave him the anti-vac right in the lobby. He also got some pills for the next few days to keep him well. (Ly had no reaction whatsoever.)
Honestly, though, I cried. He was so miserable. We gave him dog ice cream and kept his face cool with washrags and let him rub all over the furniture (because I wouldn’t let him scratch).
So no, today’s planned post didn’t make it up here.
Enzo’s meds/vaccine made him more thirsty (and more likely to have an accident) so I woke up to TWO puddles today. Oh yay. I can’t be mad at him, though.
I’m crossing my fingers that those puddles were residual from yesterday’s dark cloud and today we’re in for a better day…
I got free Starbucks this morning with my reward points so that’s something…….
How was your Monday?
