A Little of This and a Little of That

Time is flying. I have so much to say. I just don't know where to begin.

We're preparing for our trip across country. It's not a good time for crisis.

After spending our travel money on diagnostic tests, overnight hospital stays and hydrating medication, Piper is doing much better. Last week's biopsies came back normal. All eight of them. Apparently Piper suffered from a mere allergic reaction. (um, perhaps to a wasp?)

We spent the week wondering if he had Crohn's Disease or a deadly cancer. Nope. Just allergies. He'll be on heavy-duty medication and prescription dog food for a month. A recheck will tell us if there's something else we need to be concerned with.

But geez, we can't afford another scare like this. Financially or emotionally.

I mentioned having gone to the gym last Friday night. The pain. The agony. The dread of ever having to go again.

Yeah, well, whatever that was about!

I've gone every day since then. We even went twice on Sunday. The perfect way to alleviate stress and work out some anger is to whack the shit outta some balls - playing racquetball, that is.

The gym has become my new obsession.

I just got home after a ninety minute workout and I can hardly wait till tomorrow's workout. If my racquetball opponent didn't have class tonight I might still be there. The workout isn't the same without getting to top it off with a messy game of racquetball. There's just something lovely and powerful about the ricochet and echo of those four walls.

We went to a Baby Shower Saturday night. Drove an hour to get to the Olive Garden. Yeah, I didn't really understand it either. I guess it was a surprise dinner/shower - just a few friends.

Stopped at Babies R Us for the essentials - and some cute additions. When we called to tell them we were right around the corner that's when we heard it was cancelled.

Not fun.

The only acceptable reason for a baby shower to be cancelled (without so much as a phone call) is if the expecting mother goes into labor. Which she did. Two hours prior. Three weeks early!

Reason enough not to hold a surprise baby shower.

So we went to the Cheesecake Factory instead. Delicious and fun.
