Fried Worms

Last Friday, I got some bad news. A family friend had been murdered the night before. That was sad. And disturbing. On the same night I learned that my mom was having a particular complication as well. A litigation has been sparked. That makes me nervous. Later that same night, one of the security guards that patrols the docks where I live hit on me. And not in a smooth, cute way. In a creepy-now-I'm-scared-to-walk-the-dock kind of way. On Tuesday during lunch, I learned that my friend died in his sleep. I thought I would be okay. I wasn't. They made me go home and I drove to Renton. That night Taquito woke me up at 4:30 am puking. That was gross. On Wednesday after work while walking my dogs and scooping up the doodie, what was left of Taquito's flu made me dry heave as I bagged it and then Chalupa's doodie was wriggling. I hung up with my mom and called the vet which warranted yet another drive up to Renton. $145 later Chalupa was tapeworm free. And I just had to laugh because why wouldn't my dog's poop move on a week like this?

Also, I have two cavities.

The Big Surprise

My sister is pregnant!


I'm going to by an Auntie!!


Baby will be arriving mid-September.

This makes me so very happy because my sister has been struggling. She's had two miscarriages and she was beginning to think it wasn't going to happen for her. But yesterday she went in for yet another ultrasound and the baby looks healthy and she's past that first scary trimester. Now I can finally admit to her that I have practically bought out the whole baby section of a half dozen stores...
