Yah, so obviously NaBloPoMo isn't going so hot since I've been back to work! In theory, I have more time to blog since I've been back, believe it or not, but I think I just haven't got back in the groove yet. I've had a post in my drafts for a week now, but it's not quite ready for air yet.
Meanwhile, so far I'm doing ok with work life balance....as long as everything goes according to schedule, that is. This week, we had some extra drama thrown in when Gracie started having a severe allergy attack. Within just a few hours on Sunday, she had scratched a giant sore on her neck and chin. And, by Monday night, when I went to pick her up, it was almost like she was having a seizure. She was all contorted and still frantically trying to scratch. I was literally in tears, it was so hard to watch. So, with that, she was off to the emergency vet.
The Hubby took her so that I could stay home with LMH, but things were just a little "off." I was worried and Audrey was whining constantly because she missed her big sister. Gracie knows how to be alone since she was a only-puppy for a year before we brought Audrey home. But, Audrey has always had Gracie, so she's pretty dependent on her big sister. Audrey's reaction just made it tougher on me, because I felt bad for her...but it also reminded me of how much I love my sweet Gracie! Long before LMH was here, back when we were still naive semi-newlyweds, Gracie taught us how to take care of someone other than ourselves. She showed us that we could handle more. She was truly our first baby. And, I dread the day...no, dread is stronger enough...I am terrified of the day when we have to let her go. Thankfully, that decision will be saved for a much later date. A few hours later, my Gracie was home.
She seems so much better already this morning. Those steroid shots take action pretty quick. Unfortnately, they also make her super dehydrated and upset her tummy! We'll probably be dealing with an upset tummy in a few days. But, at least for today she's feeling better!
