So, life update cause I suppose it is time.
We got a puppy, Cory, she’s adorable and a really exceptionally good dog, and… it’s not working out. Sumomo is avoiding her like a plague dog and being very timid. So we’re thinking we’re going to give Cory to our pet sitter who is wonderful and who we would trust to give Cory a good home. We’re trying to figure out the details. It’s sort of horrid but The Wonder Hutch’s mom can’t deal so well with Cory either and she and Momo just have to come first and since Momo is so attached to Patty, her discomfort is exacerbating Momo’s.
Sumomo meanwhile has started on low dosage of heart medication and even though he told us much the same thing we’re much happier with the new cardiologist. The diagnosis is essentially that Momo will have congestive heart failure at some point, they have no idea when, she’s just too young to be having this kind of mitral valve scarring and not get it eventually. AND THEN, after congestive heart failure, she’s got about a year to live. Sumomo seems to be right on the cusp of where heart drugs will help so hopefully her life will be extended a good long while.
We had dinner last night with the Wonder Hutch’s ex and their new spouse (married 11 months). Which was remarkably pleasant especially given how awkward that could have been. Though they did a lot more of the cooking than we anticipated. I think the new spouse felt a little left out as the Wonder Hutch, her ex, and Patty spent so much time reminiscing but what can you do really? I have to admit I was sort of shocked by how easy a conversationalist The Wonder Hutch’s ex was, everything just flowed easily. So, yeah, that was nice after all the worry leading up to it.
I’m off to Virginia on Friday for my oldest niece’s bat-mitzvah. For which I was supposed to pick up nice pants today and I completely blanked about even though I was in the same center as the tailor. *head desk*
And… I’ve been out of sorts for a while. My term is melodramatic. And The Wonder Hutch has of course been stressed. And I’m not sure what to do about the melodramatic feeling. I suppose there isn’t much to do. I got a mood tracker app for my phone but I don’t know that that helps much of anything. And even thinking about being melodramatic makes me more melodramatic and even thinking about bringing it up is… unpleasant. Though I did finally admit it to The Wonder Hutch tonight so that’s a step I guess.
I suppose I should also just note that my being melodramatic makes me consider leaving Tumblr though I don’t think I will. I just figure if you’re reading my life update read mores you would probably like to know it is on my mind so it doesn’t just come from out of nowhere should the low likelihood occur.
And that’s all until next life update. Which is whenever. Maybe late night this weekend since I’m off to Virginia for my oldest niece’s bat-mitzvah. *Shrug*
