Not really. It’s actually been flying by. That would be because the new job keeps me so damned busy that there’s scarcely 5 minutes between 7:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. And I was really making progress today, and wished I could have stayed another 5 hours. Not really, not unless I could have delayed coming in tomorrow morning by 2 or 3 hours.

Anyway, this is a TMI thanks for sharing not! post, so if you get easily disgusted, you might want to stop reading now. Kthxbai.

1. When Joe took her for one of her interminable daily walks today, Emmylou rolled around in poop. She had to have a bath, and thank goodness I was working late and didn’t have to help because dude, that girl HATES getting bathed. So why is it that dogs love rolling in poop, and hate getting baths? She loves to swim, but hates baths. Give her a dirty scummy pond and she’ll delightedly swim as long as you’ll let her, but  put her in the bathtub and it’s Johnny bar the door. No, really. You have to lock the door so she won’t find a way out. And when I’m home, I help by holding her down while Joe does the dirty work.

2. I have to just accept that I can’t eat at Rosa’s. Well, I could, but it would only be beans. Rosa’s is on my way home, and they make a great cheap guacamole and bean tostada. And every time I eat it I puke. Not just the “oops I ate too much for my band” puke. No, the kind of violent retching where the contents of my stomach meet the toilet with such force that it hits hard and splashes all over me, and then I have to eat 2 Gaviscon and take a shower. This is particularly bad tonight because I took my nighttime medicine BEFORE the epic bout of puking. Why is this bad, you might ask? Well, it’s bad firstly because it was really horribly bitter and nasty tasting coming back up. And it’s bad secondly because I’m out of one of them. I dawdled getting my refill request in, so I won’t be able to pick them up until tomorrow after work. This is the medicine that if I don’t take it, I don’t sleep.  Sleep is good, especially when you’re putting in 11 hour days at work.

So there’s my complainey post. I don’t post for days (weeks? I don’t know how long it’s been), and then when I post it’s all disgusting and stuff.  Sorry.  I’ll try to check in again in a few days. Hope you all have a lovely non disgusting week.
