No One's Dead. . .Yet

And that is about the best I can say at this point.

Wow. Hee. . .I am truly smiling as I write this and I promise it's all good. 

Well, if you don't count the dog going into convulsions yesterday with me knowing the closest vet is two hours away. "Hi Honey. How's work?  I know life sucks right now but the dog is seizing at my feet.  No, I don't know what happened.  There is just a lot of drool and spasms.  I see blue. Do dogs excrete blue foam when they are dying? What? No, I don't know what she ate. ::sob:: Come home soon. Mwah! Kisses xoxo"

And I am going to get a lot of hate email on this, but the dog dying would've been the least of our problems.  Y'all know how much we love her, but, I thought this can't be happening, not now, but it does.

At this point we don't have enough feet for the "other shoe dropping" scenarios that have been occurring.

Scary moment with our pup to be sure. I honestly thought Pooldad was going to turn around and drive two hours back to take care of the dog. And me.  But I assure you Spot is fine.  Now.  As soon as I was done kicking her arse for scaring the beejeebees out of me.  grrrrr

And well. . .

Life. It's happened.

But, no, really. It's all good.
I swear.

I have missed y'all so much and if you couldn't tell, life has pretty much gotten in our way, as it tends to do sometimes, and Pooldad and I have found ourselves paddling upstream as fast as we can.
With one paddle.
And an amazing amount of holes in our canoe.

Sigh.  Analogies and metaphors - they're the bread and butter of being a woman, aren't they?

Anyhoodle. . .I have a serious post to write and I suppose I should've been writing it all along - but one day to the next is a surprise to us and I honestly don't know how relevant anything I put up here would be at any given moment.

I do promise that everyone is fine - a roof over our heads, a dry bed to sleep in, food for our bellies - and of course, more love than should be legally allowed in any state - but other than that? 

Not so much.

No worries Tadpoles.  Don't forget - Life is a gift. Smile LOUDLY.

I am going to post this picture that my daughter took.
It sort of sums up our world right now.
Bravo Wallene.

That's a cow.

See ya' on the flipside of sketchy interwebs.  Love and miss y'all so terribly much.

Hey, sweetie. I've missed you. Thanks for taking time to write a post, even if you only hinted at what's really been going on in your life.

Hang in there. 12:34

It is SO good to hear from you again. Take care of yourself. I'm a dog lover, but I would say you are way more important than a pet. Thank goodness she's ok too.

Glad the dog is okay! Emmy did the same thing to me when we moved here. Not a seizure, but she kind of went limp and lifeless. It was the very first weekend here and He Who was in Minnesota loading a truck with the rest of our belongings. Scared me so bad. I knew not a soul, but managed to get a local vet to call me back. She told me to give her some sugar in any form she would take and it perked her right up.

Glad to see a post from you, even if it's a bit "not so happy, but at least not dead".

Hope the dog & everyone else is doing well.

Hi dear Skippy. So good to hear from you today, even though we can only read between the lines, and can guess that things haven't been going so hunky-dory over there lately. Wish there was something I could do, but I can only continue to pray, and pray, and send loving thoughts and gentle hugs your way. Please know that you are thought of very often xx
