Crummy Weekend

Well my last childless weekend - no, make that week - was crummy.

Francis has been sick, then better, then sick, then better, then sicker. He's spending the night in the doggie hospital having a series of barium xrays. All of his levels have JUMPED in the last two weeks. He started throwing up again last night. It appears his pancreas and liver are inflamed. Then when I was vacuuming this afternoon I found more dog barf. Rather than just being bile this pile had something red and green in it. Maybe cloth? I couldn't tell. So now Dr Tom is afraid something might be stuck. Hence the extra xrays. I just came into some money today, too. Looks like we know where that's going to be going :-( But I would like to have a happy, healthy, non-puking pooper again.

Kurt has been gone all but 3 nights this week. He was only home by default on one of them (I forgot to take his clothes when we met friends for dinner Friday night). Him not being here makes me crabby. His company being unorganized and ungrateful makes me crabby.

Saturday was Rikki's 30th birthday bash. She and Amy rented a bus and planned a pub crawl. I got a new outfit and accessories. Saturday we got YET ANOTHER ice storm. Travel not advised and towing prohibited on the route I need to take (along with most of NE Iowa). Lovely. It sounds like a good time was had by all. Instead of partying it up Francis and I stayed in our jammies all day, napped and watched tv and movies. We got in some Iron Chef, some Anthony Bourdain as well as Out of Sight ( I didn't see all of it but it was pretty good). I didn't realize it was a Soderbergh film. Then going with the Jennifer Lopez theme on TNT or TBS we watched Monster in law. It's not going to win any awards but it was entertaining, too. Probably the best of the 3 was The Sentinel with Michael Douglas.

So it's been me and a sick dog all week along with a somewhat crabby and very distracted husband on IM. A bright point was the Caribbean Crusted Snapper I had for dinner on Friday night at Ced Rel Supper Club. Gotta love a place that has a relish tray!

Hope things are looking up by now!

Relish trays are awesome. I went to a supper club in WI this summer and they served a relish tray before dinner. What a value! I am glad Francis is on the mend.
