Spart and Hen cuddled

So I haven't posted much on LJ recently. My phone app was being rude about posting and I sorta migrated to FB.

In October I was introduced to a calorie counting app called Lose It! I love it. I've lost more than 20 pounds so far and that includes $mas. .

Also in October we lost Henrietta (the black dog in my icon). It was totally sudden and unexpected. I woke up one Sunday morning and said to her, "Henrietta, your daddy doesn't have any room." And then I touched her. It was a total shock because we'd been expecting to suddenly lose Jenna, not Hen.

Speaking of Jenna, she had to be spayed in December. She got an infection in her uterus and it had to come out. I was concerned about putting a dog that old through major surgery, but it was clearly the right decision. When we went to pick her up on Wednesday she was already acting better than she had when we dropped her off the day before. A week later she was acting better than she had in ages. She's still blind, deaf, arthritic and senile, but she's much happier as evidenced by the fact that she got into the WSFA snacks at WSFA last time. Not that I like her misbehaving, but I'm glad to see her feeling well enough to misbehave again.

Spartacus (the chihuahua in my icon) is now completely housebroken. It only took 10 months. It might have happened earlier but we had another unhousebroken dog living with us for a while and his attitude was that if Millie didn't have to go out, neither did he.

Also his manners are getting better and better. He will always be a chihuahua, but he's now also a real (albeit tiny) dog.

Suddenly, with no warning, in her sleep in bed between her people.

I woke up and saw she was hogging the bed again. I said, "Henrietta, your daddy doesn't have any room." Then I touched her.

For anyone who cares, I'm vending at Poolesville Day tomorrow.   http://www.poolesvilleday.com/  Some programmer thought that adding music you couldn't turn off was a good idea.  I have no control.  It's not my fault.

And my nose is all stuffed up, and has been for the past few days.  I wonder what it is I'm allergic to?  This not being able to breathe thing is seriously annoying.

I just got notified that I have gotten into the Sugarloaf shows I applied for this fall.  This is good, but I don't have nearly enough stock built.  I am taking FB and LJ back off my phone immediately.  If I ever catch back up, I'll put them back on.

Wild animals in my bed make it difficult to nap.

And... I've got a migraine. Well, that explains things.

The cat is bullying the dog. Of course, she does outweigh him.

are eating my life, so I'm temporarily taking those apps off my phone.  I'll still be able to get to them on the computer, but I really need to be working not surfing.

I cuss too much. So if you hear/see me casually cuss please smack me. But don't do it too hard, I'm not going for punishment, I'm going for bringing it to my attention so I learn not to do it.

I'm probably about to get banned from ONTD-P.  I just lost my temper at an asshole.
