Just a quick update before the whirlwind of this week begins.
And when I say whirlwind I mean I have more than two things to do. Exhausting.
1. Weegie - We have a medical problem. Some of you may remember the whole saga of Weegie tearing his ACL and then having corrective surgery about this time last year. It was sad and painful and he milked the whole situation for all it was worth. The recovery was long and difficult, but he has taken to his bionic leg well and can still roll in cow poop and ride in the Mule with the best of them.
Well, unfortunately when we were at the farm on Saturday he started limping on his only good back leg. I think he may have torn the ACL on that one. (By the way, he only has two. Legs, I mean. In the back. My wording kind of makes it sound like he has a whole herd of legs back there.) We go to the vet today to get it checked out.
He looks alternately sad and delirious. But he seems to perk up a lot at the prospect of a dog treat. Y'all please keep him in your prayers.
2. The Olympics - I tell you I am just worn out. The Chief gets the biggest kick out of me jumping up and down for EVERY SINGLE COMPETITION. Men's rowing? The long jump? Cycling? It doesn't matter. All it takes is for me to see one of the competitor's faces right before the race/event and I'm hooked. I may have no idea who they are or what country they represent but in their face I can see the years of training and "wanting" and I become their biggest fan.
Now I know where Eritrea is.
3. August - Did y'all notice that it's August? Seriously, who told July to be over? There's just something about August that makes me sweat. August seems to last forever. Why can't October last forever?
I mean October usually only lasts for about 2 days. And then it's August again.
4. I feel a fall fashion post coming on. I know you've been holding your collective breath and waiting for me to post what's in and what's not. Me being a big fashion icon and all. I'll get to work on that.
In the meantime just let me make a blanket statement. When it's "fall" here in Texas and you are tempted to wrap 6 brightly hued thick scarves around your neck for just that "pop" of color and maybe add a wool poncho because it looks chic... don't. It's just embarrassing.
Especially if you choose to wear flip-flops with the whole ensemble because of the heat.
It just needs to be said.
