Hello, All. I'm gonna play along on Random Tuesday today. Our usual lovely host is taking a little break. But some lovely bloggers are keeping the linky going, so stop by and see Stacy if you want to play along.
I learned how to give antibiotic shots to a lizard (that would be Mamba, our leopard gecko). She needs another one tonight.
I'm working on an exam for my Human Diseases class. We are doing renal and gastrointestinal this time. So while reviewing today we talked about diarrhea, constipation, hemorrhoids, vomiting. I used the word "borborygmus" in a sentence. (go ahead. look it up. I'll wait).
I also mentioned the fact that an aunt of mine died of acute glomerulonephritis at the age of 13. It was 1944 and the penicillin that would have saved her was all over in Europe. I'm glad the troops got it, but it would have been nice to have known her too.
Still working on Chili's house training. She is one stubborn little smoosh-faced girl. Almost has me convinced it's my fault she's not house broken yet. Almost.
Did you see the article not too long ago that said parents are more unhappy than people without children? (Shouts to the boys in the basement: "Hey! Stop hitting your brother! What? He kicked you where?!")
Chili likes to be mothered by Sassy. Right now she is sitting under Sassy and reaching up her paw to Sassy's face. The goal is for Sassy to lick her face and ears. She loves it. And Sassy doesn't seem to mind either.
It's so funny that the animal that weighs the least makes so much noise when he jumps. ("Hey! Guys! Stop yelling at each other!" "You're a weanie!" says one of them. "you're a weanie without any pee!" shouts the other one.)
I just heard Spooky jump off of the bed or counter in the bathroom upstairs. He only weighs about 7 lbs but it sounds like a large child is jumping around up there.
Got my tax info to the accountant. Today. He's got like two whole weeks to work on it. So why do I feel guilty? Must be the catechism I was subjected to as a child.
Well, I've got to go get the dinner, that only 2 of the 5 of us will appreciate, ready. I've already been asked what we're having. Beef stir fry with red peppers, onions, broccoli. ("Yuck. Why can't we eat real food. Like Mac-n-cheese, or hot dogs?")
I'm really looking forward to getting veggies from our CSA garden soon. Spring greens are ready this week.
K. Have a great week!
