tiny miracle

My beagle won’t poop in the rain. Sunday morning there was a storm that included flash flood warnings. I knew then (at 6am when the obnoxiously loud weather alarm sounded on my cell) that this was going to be a rough day for my little muppet. I’m not sure if it’s a beagle trait, but…

furry baby

My furry baby, Mac, is still fighting an ear infection. We’ve had problems with his ears since he was very little. He’s on Apoquel for the inflammation. His paws also get inflamed and he’ll attack them if I’m not around to distract him, so we spend a lot of time napping and watching movies. On…

it happens

This story is a good example of me “going with the flow” as opposed to “nuclear meltdown”. We’ve all had those days where the sh*t hits the fan and we handled it poorly. But when we deal with crisis and do a great job we should take notice… because we are awesome! We totally got…

week one Whole30

Just  quick post to update my Whole30 progress. Not a lot to report except that I feel much better overall. My inflammation is subsiding, I sleep more comfortably and I have not had a reaction to anything I’ve eaten in the last seven days.  I’ve planned out another week of food and even prepped most…

reboot

I stepped away from the computer, made dinner, washed dishes, made granola (burned it), made more granola (burned it less) and managed a half-hearted workout (it still counts!). I…

snoozles (happy friday)

Another adorable picture for you of my brother’s new puppy. This little Twoodle is completely crashed out under what I can only guess is “the coolest fricking coffee table in the history of ever”. It’s like, made out of an actual tree, you guys. My big brother, Joe, lives way up north in New York.…

twoosday

Another cute picture from my brother, the puppy wrangler (or twoodle canoodler, if you will). I see five of the eight pups in this pile-up. They’re Golden Doodles, both parents are Golden Doodles so I call these guys Twoodles (of course). I cannot imagine what it must be like to have these furry babies in…

other way ’round

Another pic of my furry children. They keep me going, you know? They need me. Yeah, I know I keep them alive by caring for them and stuff but honestly sometimes I feel like it’s the other way around. Have a lovely weekend and maybe find time to do something nice for somebody (furry or…

screwdles

The past week has been more stressful than I anticipated. I have been camped out on the couch either with Mac laying in my lap or snoring next to me in his crate. He had one bandage change 4 days ago and he will go again to have fresh bandages put on tomorrow. His ten…
