Updates and Party Planning

So Pup LOVED her new vet, and the feeling was mutual.  <3 2="" and="" br="" fell="" give="" he="" her="" in="" injections="" let="" love="" nasal="" nbsp="" one="" she="" spray.="" staff="" take="" temperature="" them="" whole="" with="">

Halloween is almost upon us.  My favorite holiday.  Even though we don't get trick-or-treaters here.  We're on a dark cul de sac, and even my past efforts at decorating and turning on every light in the house (and buying the GOOD candy) hasn't been enough to lure the kiddies over.
Can't blame them.  We're at the top of the hill, and it's pretty darn dark and dreary.

Ah well.  The kids have parties at school, and maybe we can walk around the neighborhood or go to the Potrero.

Or I'll just go to yoga, lol!
(Yes, I'm back to yoga, and feeling so much better! Physically AND mentally.)

WG's birthday is also coming up.  She loves music and dancing, so we've decided on a disco theme.  I'm going to make cupcakes with sprinkles, and we'll order good food.  Then dance the night away. Well, until 9 PM...

The alternative medicine continues to work its magic.  We're seeing a little bit of improvement in LG, as well.  It truly is a miracle drug, and should be available everywhere.  Hopefully it soon will be.

OK, gotta get WG out of the tub.  Sayonara!

Slow and Steady...IS REALLY ANNOYING!!!!!!!!

One week after TCFH (The Cold From Hades), I'm still congested, coughing, and exhausted.
And cranky.
I haven't been to yoga in a week and a half.  Last night I did a 15-minute online practice, and that just about did me in.  No yoga + no long walks = Unhappy Mommy.

But then WG comes and hangs out with me, and wants to have a dance party, and all is well again.

And, if you gotta be sick, it's awfully nice to have a warm pet to take naps with.

And I HAVE been sleeping A LOT, which is sort of nice.  Unusual.

Tomorrow I go to my chiropractor, which is also nice.  And then the pup and I will go to her new vet.  She doesn't like to ride in the car, and the old vet was in the city, a good 30-minute drive.  This one is within walking distance.  Hopefully they will click.  Of course, she's the most perfect pup in dogdom, so I can't imagine that they won't.

We're in that time of year that I absolutely love.  Autumn in California may not be quite the same as autumn in New England or New York, but it's beautiful, just the same.  I love the light in the late afternoon. Of course, because it's California, the temperature today was about 75 (fahrenheit) rather than 10 or 20 degrees cooler.  Which I've finally gotten used to.
After 22 years.  :)

OK, gotta go lie down again.  Who knew blogging was so tiring?  ;)

The Most Wonderful (?) Time of the Year.

Sorry, been a bit crazed lately.  My mom was in town last week, and then I got a really nasty cold, which I'm just now getting over.  October/November seems to be the time of year for me to get sick.

But I do LOVE October.  Always have.  Growing up in New England, it was, of course, the time for foliage. In California we don't get a whole lot of that, but it's still beautiful.  And, of course, Halloween is coming.  I LOOOOOOOVE Halloween!!!!!!!!
The best place to celebrate Halloween in San Francisco is, in my opinion, an area called the Potrero. One of our favorite spots.  If we can get the kids to go along, we'll head there this year.  Lots of creative people (and dogs) wearing terrific costumes.

Otherwise, life continues on apace.  We've started giving LG the same medication as WG.  His anxiety manifests itself in different ways, but it's anxiety, nonetheless.  We spoke about it at his IEP last week.  It's so good to know that all of their teachers love and care for them so much!  We're so lucky!

And, apropos of nothing, can I just say how happy I am that high-waisted pants are back in style?  After 16 years of low-rise tyranny, we can (quite literally) breathe easier again.

OK, I need to lie down.  I'm not quite fully recovered.

Talk soon, m'dears!
