Painting the Front Door
I'm painting the front door this color today or more likely tonight. (There, if I say it than I have to make it happen). I have always loved this room. And always wanted a periwinkle door because of this photo. The last few weeks have been so full of outside changes....that I haven't been able to get anything done on the inside. Like my sewing project that is all over the dining room table or for that matter painting the dining room table under the sewing project.
This week has been full of unplanned things. I had to go to a funeral yesterday that was very unexpected.
My cousin and best friend in the whole world, the person I've been closest too my whole life has had a reoccurrence of her cancer. I dread all she is going to have to go through again. Chemo starts on Monday. Please keep her in your thoughts. The doctor is very positive. He thinks it can be stopped.
It just has to be stopped.
I'm on my way to take Newman back to the vet. He hurt himself last Saturday while I was away from the house for an hour. While all the stuff has been going on outside, I tried my best to be here the whole time to keep the dogs calm and so they wouldn't get into any trouble.
Newman had gotten used to the painters and Saturday was the last day they were painting. I came home after running a few errands to find him limping and he cried out in pain when I lifted him carefully. I took him to the vet on Monday and my vet said that he'd probably be back 80% by Friday.
Well, it's Friday and he's still moping about. He slept under the bed last night. He's not barking at anything. He's not digging. He's not jumping on anything. He doesn't want to eat unless I bring him home something special. He's eaten no dog food this week. He has eaten three McDonald's hamburgers, watermelon, Arbi's roast beef sandwiches and lots of parmesan cheese.
I'm so missing my bad NuNu. I can't wait for him to be himself again and be getting into trouble again. Things are just too calm around here with him feeling bad.
