The Beach, part 3

What I’m Reading: Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella (our book club selection for the month) AND Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World by Tracy Kidder

What I’m working on: My daily (pathetic) words and my two workshops.

New Words today: 108

Today didn't seem like much of a vacation. We're only an hour away from Orlando and today my blond 1/2 lab, 1/2 golden retriever had a veterinarian appointment, so I made the drive back for a portion of the day. I love Rexy, but poor dog, his tear ducts don't work. He's allergic to meat (and just about everything else). When his allergies are bad, he pulls his hair out.

Today, we came home with 6 drugs, a new halo, and bill for $400.

Yikes - $400! Doesn't sound like much fun. Try to enjoy the rest of the time there.

Aw! Poor doggie! I can't blame him for being allergic to meat, though :-)

I hope you're having fun at the beach this week! I'm so jealous!

I hope the rest of your vacation goes well. After all it is the beach. but I do understand about poor Rexy. If anything happened to my dog, well lets not think about that. But I do share feelings on the vet bill, but take heart he probably has better insurance than you do[;)]
