Peek A Boo!

Well hello again. Update time for everyone. Yes, I know I disappeared again. I know I'm lax in my stalker duties. Everytime I get through a rough spot I think "Well, ok, that's over. NOW I'm done. NOW things are all better and life will be normal again. Yay!" Only, not so much. I never realized how hard depression hits and how often you backslide and how easy it is to do so. But I'm here now! No promises that it's a permanent thing but things are definitely looking up. I actually went on a job interview today with our local energy coop company. I'm really hoping I get it. If I don't get out of the house soon I may have to kill T. Yes, I love him but damn....months of being together 24 hours? Nope. You'd wanna kill him too. Also, the coop is literally 4 stop signs from my house. Niiiiice.

So...hmmm....what's happened since the last post. Well, Bonnie, our female catahoula, slipped her choke chain that kept her in the back yard, went into the front yard and chased a huge truck on the street, bit the tire and got rolled. She's ok now but her left front leg is now useless to her. She took a lot of nerve damage. Luckily the mailman saw it happen, knew who she belonged to and came banging on our door. Gotta love a small town.

So, both of the big dogs in the back have now had accidents involving vehicles. *Sigh* Bonnie no longer has any interest in leaving the back yard, but Clyde gets out everynight still. He just hangs on the front porch and barks if anyone walks by. He's made friends with the new neighbor puppy and visits him all the time. He likes the mailman and doesn't bother him in the morning when he delivers the mail. He doesn't bark if the local neighbors are walking by, but anyone he doesn't know from his routine gets a stern barking. Also, trash. He has picked up a bad trash habit. Ya know how dogs will roam the neighborhood and dig through peoples trash? I could live with that. That's normal. Clyde goes to other peoples houses and brings home ENTIRE bags of trash so he can go through them at his leisure on our front porch. There's nothing like stepping out in the morning and finding baby diapers everywhere. Pleasant thought, no?

Also, you guys have Christina (again) to thank for this here post. She normally has the hubby poke me for her to get my attention. She found a way around that. The mail system is evil. She send me a card that I opened and smiled when I saw it. It's rather pretty.

Then I opened it and laughed until it hurt.

Friends who refuse to give up on you are a pain in the ass and the most awesome thing ever.

hello again sweety
please stay with us for a bit longer this time okay? and maybe next time that black dog of depression bites, you could give us a heads up before it gets so bad that you have to withdraw again.

HUGZ [ see that's a BIG hug ]

OMG, yay! I'm soooo glad to see you!

Sweetie, I'm sorry to hear about the depression . . . it totally sucks -- no other way to put it.

Tell Bonnie "Bad Dog" for me and give her a hug from me, too, ok? No more chasing vehicles of the four wheeled kind -- I'm glad she's ok.

Clyde also gets a "Bad Dog!" from me, even though I was laughing at the images of a big ol' dog dragging home a whole entire intact bag of trash.

Christina said...

You know, I giggled the whole way to the post office the day that I mailed that. I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

Good luck on the job interview!

And stick around this time. Or I'll have to come up with even more inventive ways to get your attention. And frankly, I'd rather not have to. It kinda cuts into the knitting time.
