Now I also have conjunctivitis in addition to my bronchitis...my right eye is swollen and leaking green goo. It's really sexy, let me tell you.

I'm also having reactions to one of my meds...swelling and itching in my mouth. Didn't sleep last night...except for two hours this morning dozing on the couch. Super. I have to go back to work tomorrow.

Um, if you look in our new sticky, green eye goo is a reason to go immediately to the e-vet. Just saying. :wink:

Seriously, hope you feel better. That sounds horrible.

If you have conjunctivitis I would seriously stay away from the dogs as you can give it to them.

Birdie got conjunctivitis from a kid in Gremlin's Kindergarten class and I ended up getting it from Birdie a few days later. Both our doctor and our vet confirmed it was the same strain with lab testing.

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANT!

I was invited by a friend to have a vendor table at her dog event on Sunday. Now, as some of you know, I've been working on starting up a tug toy company and since I'm completely anal, it's been going slowly since I expect perfection out of my tester tugs. LOL! WELL a couple weeks ago my sewing machine crap the bed. Yesterday I picked up a sewing machine from a friend. It is actually a really nice sewing machine, but it's old (1962) and has tons of quirks, all of which I apparently found out today (sorry, Noel, for bugging the hell out of you all day long!). FINALLY I get it up and working, I made a tester tug, and so far I'm not sure I'm happy with the durability of the fabric I just bought. ARGH! I'm so frustrated, and I have to work tomorrow, plus Saturday night I have a launch party for my friend's business, so that leaves me tomorrow morning and much of the day Saturday (oh yeah, and I have like a 4 hour long massage scheduled Saturday . . . yes I need it for my back, but the 4 hours is because one of my best friends is in massage school and has to make up some homework before the end of the month, so I can't screw up her homework!!). Which is like NO time. And you know, I could just pull from the event, but that would be pretty crappy of me since A) My name is on the website and B) I promised to donate tugs to the raffle and C) I'm also manning a "beg" table for my other friend's foster who just had emergency surgery. GRAAAAAAAAARRRRRRAARRRRRRRR!!! Plus I'm on a diet, which makes me cranky anyway. LOL.

Okay. End rant.

Just feeling selfish and pissy right now and I shouldn't. One of my friends called me yesterday and asked me to let her dogs out yesterday after work. Fine, no problem. She then called me early this afternoon and said she wasn't going to be able to get away from work, could I let them out sometime before 4? Fine. Starting to get salty, but fine. She just called me again and asked me to go BACK over there to let them out again. I literally just got into my jammies and made a cup of coffee and settled in with a book.

I shouldn't bitch - she helps me out on the rare occasions I need Inara let out. She lives less than 10 minutes away. But she has three dogs who are loud and rambunctious. And it's pouring down rain. And she doesn't plan ahead very well, obviously. I don't mind helping occasionally, I really don't. But now I'm just annoyed.

Spent the ENTIRE day shooting (just for fun, but when I shoot, I want my pictures)

something happened and the memory card won't read. There were a few photos that I was really looking forward to having, and I may not have anything now.

I'm not sure if I want to scream or cry... both actually...

The first time I read this I thought you went literally, shooting, and you wanted to cry because you didn't get pictures of you shooting a gun. I was thinking "Can't you go shooting again?" Totally reread this and figured it out, that blows.

I went out to see my horse today. She is still battling a wicked hoof abscess. A friend of mine came out two days ago and squirted iodine into her foot and let me borrow a soaking boot to help keep things clean. I didn't go out yesterday because I was moving, but went out today. The barn owner informed me that she was running around and bucking like an idiot. I brought her in and she looked sound. I repacked and wrapped her foot then went into the tackroom to package her supplements. I could hear her moving around and then another horse called so she called back. I do not allow my horse to "call". She was pretty much being herd bound and acting like a goon because she wanted to be with her friend outside. I simply walked out of the tackroom, although I'm sure my body language said 'she's going to kill you!' because my horse immediately started backing up in the cross ties. She doesn't tie well to begin with, she kept pulling back and broke one of the ties! I'm totally in between paychecks right now and my bank account is looking pretty pathetic. I'm sure I won't have to pay for a new one until I pay my board[which is also when I will get paid again], but that's going to potentially be another $20 out the window. I lunged the crap out of her and she looked sound. I will be out tomorrow to check on her and if she isn't lame her vacation is over. Needless to say I didn't repack her foot after she ran around like a chicken with her head cut off, I simply put the boot back on and put her back outside. We'll see what it looks like tomorrow. She can be such a jerk sometimes - mostly when she's been sitting for extended periods of time.

My bronchitis is pretty much cleared up, but I still develop a horrible sore throat every night...painful, hurts-to-swallow sore throat. Makes it very hard to sleep. :(

Had a flat on Saturday, they took the nail out and plugged it, but the tires are worn and they said it might not hold.

Well, it didn't and I'm sitting on the side of the road waiting for AAA (hour and 20 minutes and counting). So now I'm looking at getting four new tires. :rant:

So much for finishing them out over the summer, I knew I'd need new ones before winter, but pre-wedding was NOT on my list!!!!!!

YUCK! I'm in the "need new tires" position as well. And those damn things are pricey!! But at least I'm not on the side of the road . . . yet.

I'm at the tire place now. They wouldn't repair the tire because it was so worn, and they said they were very surprised that the other place did. So, all four it is.

Boo for getting new tires, that sucks, so expensive...

My allergies suck. Not bad enough to use Reactine or whatever - just random bouts of intense sneezing and itchy eyes, and then I'm fine for a while. But damn when it hits I wanna rip my eyes out!!!

We had to get all new tires last year and did a bunch of pricing... Ended up going to Pep Boys for ours... Got a 'good' deal, I think. Was like Buy three and get the fourth free, plus I think we got some kind of rebate off of each tire, too.

I had to throw out two batches of dog treats for this weekend. The reason...I left them sitting on the counter all day (75+ in the house with the windows open). Why? The fridge was kinda full...and I didn't want to freeze them until they were cut up. So I left them on the counter...I wonder where I left my BRAIN. That was one of the most idiotic things I've done in a looooong time.
