Slow week, summer work

This feels like the slowest tww we've ever had. I don't know if that's good or bad. I can't describe it-it just feels like the world is slowing down, and at the same time flying by us. This weekend was a bit of a whirlwind, so maybe that's why time seems so screwy--a long weekend, coupled with 50 million things to do (including vegetable garden planting and a flat tire on the Mass Pike). Usually, staying busy makes the tww fly by, but it's only been one week. One slooow week. Hopefully the next week will speed up a bit. Once next week is gone, school is basically over and our trip to Alaska is one week sooner. Yippee!

In frustrating, sad, and expensive news, I took our dog Ringo into the vet this afternoon because he has a loose tooth, and she discovered a heart murmur. An EKG for a dog? A cool $230. And then, being knocked out for a dental cleaning and tooth extraction? Probably another $250 more. Add to that two new tires from our flat on Saturday and another potential month of injectibles and that equals two broke teachers. Guess who's working this summer?!

My cat had an EKG when he was little. Crazy how expensive.

Anyways, I am the one doing research on same-sex couples ttc/parenting/adopting/etc. I'm trying to line up interviews and focus groups. If you're still interested drop me a line @ lesbianmoms@gmail.com :-)

We once spent $400 for surgery on Maggie's ass.

Oh, pet mommies....

Ringo has palpitations! Better keep the Kosher Bone away...it might give him a heart attack!

It really was very lovely to meet the two of you today! :) We should make it a regular event - you're awfully close!
