Picture this: me and the vet tech walking Sadie around the grounds at the vet clinic, the vet tech following behind Sadie with a bowl in case she happens to have the urge to pee.
Me, the dog mom encouraging Sadie to please pee! Please pee!
But she sure did give us the look when we pushed a bowl under her bottom while she was in the midst of performing.
And then we waited.
And we waited.
She is scared of other “BIG” dogs. And when we were in our little exam room behind closed doors, she could hear all kinds of sounds of dogs howling, cats meowing, loud barking ---I have no idea what was going through her sweet little head, but I’ve never seen a dog shake so much.
Not sure it was because of how she was feeling, or if it was caused by the chaos outside of that little haven of an exam room.
More tests. Xrays.
Good news! She doesn’t have bladder stones like the vet first feared. It’s a bladder infection, and she is now on a hefty round of pain meds and antibiotics.
We hope she will respond quickly.
I love you so much I’d lay my best quilt down for you!
Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in over night when she has a few doses into her.
When all the antibiotics are gone, we need another test to be sure the infection has cleared up.
It looks like there will be another bowl-positioning event in our future!
While this girl napped, I tackled a Power-Purge that needed to happen.
This antique dresser in the guest room!
The antique dresser in the guestroom is where I store extra bed linens and other stuff (EVIDENTLY!) that I was unsure what to do with.
Don’t know where to put it? Put it in the guest room!
Until today when enough was enough and some of this stuff had to go.
Pile of purses and tote bags to be donated!
How many purses do I really need to keep? I got rid of every single one that did not have pockets large enough to hold my cell phone.
I don’t like purses that are one huge gaping hole – I like them with different compartments to keep things organized – but not so many that I forget where I put stuff.
Many of these are in good shape, so I hope their new owners will like them.
And tote bags? Don’t even get me started. The closet in the basement off the quilt room has TOTES full of TOTES..and I’ll eventually get to those too.
I’m much happier with this empty drawer space!
Are you keeping up with your own 5 minute power purge?
If you haven’t started, there is no time like right now. Stop with the computer already and go do it! 5 minutes. Come on! What’s stopping you!
If you’ve slacked off due to the holiday and the next holiday coming up – 5 minutes! Come on, it can make you feel so much better. Do it for YOU!
My next biggie…the linen closet in the upstairs bathroom. I’m almost afraid of it.
But I’m going to do it!
Maybe not this week – but it’s on the list.
When the rest of the house has been completely gone through…THEN there are some drawers and places in the sewing studio that really REALLY need some help. But I want the living spaces in the house taken care of first ---
2 more days until Clue #2! Can you stand it??
Have a great Wednesday evening, Everyone!
