Ohm No! Doing? Doing!

What have we been up to? Oh that's right, standing outside with a very sick dog. Every hour for the last 48 hours straight. With a two year old, saying over and over the above (translation: Oh no! What are you doing? Doing! to the poor dog who has neither privacy or dignity at this point.) I can't imagine who he heard that phrase from. :)
And as I opened the newspaper (a national paper) this morning in an attempt to distract myself from said infirmed dog and chatty cathy across from me I almost choked on my special K. My two counties were specifically named as being the only two in the country where the real estate market has stabilized and is in fact increasing! As someone trying to buy a house I'm feeling ill. What a bunch of crap! And after the last 48 hours, let's just say I know a little something about crap. (So sorry if you are checking this on your lunch break, truly I am.)
So when the going gets tough, the tough fall off the wagon. At least if you are me you do. At 10:42am today I went down in flames. I don't think it's fair to say that I fell anywhere. That implies I was somewhat innocent, when in fact it was all very methodical. I dove face first into a chocolate coke (made with smuckers chocolate and regular coke--you could do diet coke, but really, what's the point?). And I don't even feel guilty yet, even with my lil audience patronizing me with "Ohm no! Doing? Doing!" 
Let's hope Cosmo's new lines can cheer me up. I hear a Boyfriend is good for that sort of thing. Thank you Cosmo for all the new stuff, it's all amazing.

Happy Thursday! Until tomorrow.

Poor little dog - hope he's better super soon (like yesterday if possible!) Housing is tricky. Don't rush yourselves. Better to wait and get what you can afford and like than to jump through hoops only to be inviting tons of stress into your daily life as you worry about how to pay for it or how to get out of it because you hate it. Hope the chocolate Coke worked!

Hope your dog is better soon. Mine just got over kennel cough yesterday, which was a party in itself with the coughing and throwing up. Can't wait to see what you do with CC's new lines!

Oh, so many things. My dog is sick too--a blood disease from a deer tick! I would have had the cake too. I bet it was sooo good! Everything will work out for you, it always does!

Can't wait to get some of the Cosmo!

Eek! I hope your week gets better. :) Mmmm... chocolate coke. And yeah, I do prefer chocolate diet coke... for the taste only... not for the sugar content. LOL.

And that new line is too cute! Love Cosmo. :)
