mind boggling day at work..doesn't sound like it was much better here. the well pump is on the fritz so no water until tomorrow when the new part comes in. that pretty much sucks for everyone, but selfishly especially me who really needed to debrief in a steaming hot bath tonight and that would have also felt so good on my poor aging and aching knees.
Oh. Freaking. Well.
maybe tomorrow night i will get hot water lucky and fulfill my deep soaking needs.
tonight i will just have to try to stay off my feet..then my knees don't hurt as much.
and this would be why i shake my head at folks who refuse to give their old and arthritic pets pain meds. i forgot to take my ibuprofen and tylenol arthritis meds today because i was so damn in a hurry and busy. i really was regretting it by 11 am and had to wait until i got home again tonight to get some relief.
and that was just for one single day.
i feel so bad for all of those poor old, arthritic dogs who have to suffer thru constant joint aches day after day. one guy recently told me he gave his old, crippled with arthritis dog the occasional "doggy aspirin." well gee that was big of him. what about all of those other painful days?
i am all for not projecting our feelings onto animals..but we need to give our heads a shake..if arthritis hurts us..it hurts them too. not sure if your aging pet is arthritic?..take them to the vet and find out for sure.
gilligan should really shut up...mr barky for no reason is going to make me have to get up to yell at him to stop his barking.
ok..i did it and he shut up...for now.
i forgot to mention that squeaky-joy sadly did not make it, she peacefully passed away with johanna at her vets. so it is just michael and lizzy staying with us for now. our deepest condolences to johanna for loving our squeakers so well. michael and lizzy i think like the laundry area better than the medical room. they still get their privacy but it is more interesting and less lonely over here plus i share my toast with them.
that damn dog is barking again..i guess i better go shut him in the house so i will end this blog now then i won't have to walk back here again.
cheer up bed buddies, here i come.
