I somehow cut the inside of my mouth - right below the inside of my teeth. The dentist took a look at it yesterday at my cleaning appointment, but didn't think it was much to worry about. But it hurts if I press my tongue up against my teeth. And it's developing into a bigger sore. Ugh. This really isn't what I want to deal with right now.

At least it's Friday. I'll just keep repeating that to myself all day today.

Maybe I'll sneak off to my parents' house with Baxter later tonight - make them feed me, and get some good play time in with Baxter. He's been pretty fantastic last night and this morning with how irritable I've been after my day yesterday...all cuddles and kisses and staying out of trouble.

Need your advice and didn't want to start a separate thread - I noticed last night that my 6 month old puppy chipped her lower canine tooth. It's just the top edge is a bit rough. Doesn't seem to be bothering her, do I need to have this looked at?

Argh, I've been so careful about what she chews!

I am not saying you should take this advice, but when humans chip their tooth, usually it is not bad then ignore or you glue it back on. I am really surprised my dog hasn't chipped a tooth, he gets gnawing really fast and heavily some times on marrow and knuckle bones.

On a similar mouthy note, I need some real chews. The guy at the store said beef tendons should be good for about 3 hours, GREAT! - gave him one, wrecked it in 35 minutes Triple braided thick bully? less than an hour. Frozen 6 inch marrow bones? 40 minutes. I am at a loss!

Ok good. Maybe I'll try to get a pic of it tonight for you guys.

So frustrating, I've tried to take good care of her teeth!

The regular bully sticks seem to be the best for her do far. If she's really determined, she can go through them pretty fast too. The lady at the pet store told me I spoil her the other day. Now I'm embarrassed to go back, but I need more!

No more hard bones. I bet she chipped it on the marrow bone, dang it!

Baxter's favorite? Deer/elk antlers. He likes other chews well enough, but...they don't last. He gets cow ears as a treat, but they only last about 5 minutes.

I'm alive! (If anyone has wondered, though I'm sure not, since most of you are my fb friends). I've been feeling largely anti-social, which is saying something since the majority of my social contact is via the internet. Anywho...

I've been in that "dark scary place" and combined with a lupus flare-up I've barely gotten out of bed. I want the sun to come out! The 40-degrees/dark blanket of clouds/drizzle that we've had basically constantly is NOT helping.

Things are getting tricky at work. Positions are drying up right and left and I don't think my contract is going to be renewed...at this rate, they're basically dropping me down to part time. I haven't gotten any call backs (or returned calls) about the educational positions I applied for. I am the queen of regret right now, since I have a PhD and can't even find any positions requiring a Master's degree. It's shocking to think that just a couple of years ago this field was very lucrative and oceanographers were in high demand. Now, the same positions that paid good money pay salaries you can barely life off of, and student loan debt is crippling. I wish I'd stayed in the medical field. I'm contemplating going back to get my certification in radiation therapy or something... I'd love to go to PA school, but it's cost prohibitive, and many of my requisite classes are "expired". How did I get myself into this mess? At this point, we're looking at moving back to CT so Jereme can take his business back over... he made good money and could support both of us, but it's akin to going to prison for me. I don't know what's going to happen with the store idea my dad and I wanted to do... maybe that's an option, if we're in CT and there's less risk.


Echo seems to be doing fine. His HR is still high, but his vet doesn't think it's a problem, since the beat is normal, there's no murmur or anything and it hasn't caused him any problems yet. I guess some dogs, like some people, have a higher than normal resting HR. They did tests to look at kidney function, but it'll be a few days before we hear anything. All in all, they don't seem too concerned.

I keep dreaming of a nice warm, sunny beach.

I think Echo just wanted to be cool, like us. So glad he's doing alright, though!!!

I hope things work out for you one way or another...it sounds incredibly stressful.

A co-worker just came up behind me and put his hands on my face...they were wet. BLECH! Who puts their hands on someone's face? And why were they wet?

Maybe I don't want to know.

I need to go home and shower.

Can someone PLEASE explain this logic to me? I think my manager has temporarily lost it. At least I hope it's temporary.

He keeps piling work on me, which really isn't a big deal. However, he knows that my computer is in the slow, agonizing process of dying from some unknown cause. IT worked on it for two hours yesterday, and it made NO difference. The next step is basically handing it over to them for 1-2 days....and I can't do much work without a computer. So he keeps giving me all of this work that requires a computer, and then keeps asking when I'm going to get my computer fixed. Huh. Well, it's a bit tricky if I NEED A COMPUTER.

Normally we get along very well. Between yesterday and today...I'm surprised I haven't completely blown up at anyone yet. Yesterday I was blamed for someone else's mistake, received no recognition/appreciation when I fixed said mistake in a fairly short period of time, and then received a bunch of crap for leaving an hour early (because IT had control of my PC and I couldn't do any work). I got the, "Well, if you make up the hours, then fine." Uhm..yeah. Let's see. I typically get to work 10-15 minutes early every day. That would be 50mins-2.25hrs extra every week. I almost always work through lunch, so that's another 2.25hrs extra. We also just had our conference this week, which involved being at a dinner from 6:30-10:30 (4 hours outside of work), and getting to the site at 7am (an hour earlier than usual), having no breaks (I was the point of contact for all A/V matters, tracking down the speakers, escorting them through the building, etc), and working 30 minutes later. So him giving me crap about leaving an hour early on a quiet day just about pushed me over the edge.

Okay. I'm going to stop myself now...I just needed to let all of that out....argghhhh.
