Thanks, BT.

I have a vent too. The tooth is officially hurting. This one won't go away either. Osteoporosis is taking another one. I have to wait it out too. I don't dare go to a dentist. I'm afraid my jaw would break. If the jaw can't hold on to the tooth, them I don't want anyone breaking the tooth out of my jaw.

Yesterday I did get some relief from OTC analgesics, but even eating soft ramen type noodles and imitation Krab soup would get the pain woke up and yelling.

So, although my back pain is so much better, everyone will have to deal with me whining about the pain. Sorry about that in advance.

Note to self: The Tabasco goes in the soup, not in the eye. Ouch!

Owie!!!

I was making Emeril's Essence one night and Smudge was sitting under the cutting board I had pulled out. Cayenne fell off the board and dropped in her eye...I felt like a total...you know what! She wasn't too happy with me washing her eye out, either.

I am venting at myself. Last night I was tired and sick and trying to do some work here at DC and got distracted. I let the dogs out and I guess when I opened the sliding glass door I caught the screen door and it closed too. DH built in a dog door flap into the screen and in the summer we leave that open so they can go in and out. I didn't realize until last night that they can really see that and rely on it.

I went back to the computer and heard a horrid thud behind me. I looked and there was Violet, visibly shaken at the door. She saw the flap and was bouncing in as she always does after being out. With it being dark she didn't see the door.

I called the emergency line at our vet's and was told to watch for concussion signs and just check on her once in awhile and then bring her in this morning. I did and she has a mild concussion. This is the sweetest dog you could ever meet. When I am sick or upset she comes up to console me. She is so forgiving and here I give her a concussion that they can't do much for. She will be fine, but we have to keep her quiet for 5 days. Not an easy thing with Violet.

I know she forgives me but I am having a hard time forgiving myself. Our two dogs are our only children.

Poor Violet, and poor you! It was just an accident, so you do need to forgive yourself. I know you would never hurt Violet for the world. I'm glad she's going to be ok.

Thanks, Barbara. I knew you would understand. I have just been so unfocused these days and am doing stupid or silly things.

I love you even when you do stupid or silly things--we all do them you know. I'm on my way to bed in a few minutes, but come on and talk tomorrow afternoon or whenever we both happen to be online. We can be stupid and silly together.

Gee, I wish I could be silly and stupid today, too. But, I gotta go to work. Hugs for Laurie and Barbara.

Poor little Violet! And poor you Laurie, that would make me feel awful too. Big hugs to you both.

I never let work stop me. Of course, I worked with 4th graders! Thanks for the hug! Lots of hugs back.

In fact, hugs all around! If you have read this, consider yourself hugged!
