The Crazy Suburban Mom: Weekend round-up, Ginger's paw and a tough week...

Weekend round-up, Ginger's paw and a tough week...

1.  Ginger's Paw -  The nail on Ginger's left front driver's side dew claw took a hard right a few days ago.  If you want to take a close-up look - and think about it first 'cause it's pretty gross - it's here.  We took a ride to the vet ASAP, me babbling like a fool for her to be still and her holding her paw in a perpetual state of out and up all, Mommy what's up with this thing and what are you going to be doing about it?

As you can see...


She's now got it firmly planted under her in the downstairs living room muffin.  And all is well with the world and dog nails again.

The vet clipped her nail and all her nails and that thing popped across the room like the Challenger...  Seems, according to the vet, she must have cracked it days ago and the last assault on it cause it to bend at that freakish angle.  She has an infection in the nail bed because it had been open for days by that time and she'd need antibiotics for two weeks on top of the meds she needs for her arthritis. 

Bad, puppy mommy - I heard that in my head.  Ginger on the other hand heard, OMG!  MORE PILL POCKETS! YAY! NOM!


When she has to get pills she gets them in Pill Pockets and she loves those chicken flavored things...  Ginger's all about seeing the glass half full.  Or about seeing the Pill Pocket twice as  full or something like that.  Anyway she's much better!

2.   My kid - He totally cooks.  


I just love that ...

He also had a really hard week. His phone and his computer broke.  His ceiling fan too.   He tried to put together something for me that didn't fit - The parts just didn't fit.  In any of the six languages that the instructions came in.

Oh, and he got a sty.  That kid had a tough week.

Ugg - rough week but on the bright side, Ginger is OK!

Maureen - I know, it was a tough one for my kid but at least Ginger was okay. She has to go back to the vet to have her teeth scaled and she wont be happy but she will smell better. He gave her an antibiotic that will work on her teeth too he said.

Ooooh, my poor Ginger! Give her an Aunt Lin smoochie for me, will ya?? That sure looks like it hurt like a mutha.

Bummer for your son too. Been there. Seems like when it rains it pours.

Kudos on having a son that cooks. I wish more moms taught their sons the basics of life.
