LIFE UPDATE

Things and stuff.

a. Indiana does not have cancer. Yay! This makes me a little sad that we put him through a giant surgery - but the vet seems to think it was the right thing to do even though the tumor was benign. Of course, we’re paying her large amounts of money to tell us how right it was to pay her large amounts of money. Oh well. NO CANCER. That’s the point.

b. It’s pretty much definite that Guinness has stress-related GI issues. Indy comes home half shaved and with a giant incision? Guinness POOPS EVERYWHERE. With bonus vomit. Thanks sweetie, we weren’t paying the vet enough yet. Good job helping us rectify that situation.

c. Coming up on a year (next month) at the “new” (not so new anymore) job. Yay me!

d. Got into an a cappella group with husband. Yay us!

e. Friendly reminder that I’m singing in the US premiere of Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame at the La Jolla Playhouse, running late October through mid December. See how I did the self-promotion thing, but I totally buried it so that people who are skimming past this post won’t even know about the thing? Sneaky sneaky. (But seriously, if you want more info/dates/etc, message me. It’s going to be SUCH A GOOD SHOW and oh my gosh I’m in the US premiere of a Disney musical WHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK.) Dream come true, y’all.

f. I was in a car accident last month and was juuuuuuuust shy of totaling my car. Got rear-ended on the highway. Stupid surfer dude. Got my car back today though! I got my babybackbabybackbabyback.

g. Anti-depressants still working quite well. See peppy post above. See also adulting, as shown by me going by myself (like a GROWN ASS WOMAN) to the rental car place to drop off my car (and remembering to top off the gas before dropping it off, again like a motherfucking ADULT), and then successfully navigating the anxiety-inducing meeting with the car repair people to talk about my car and inspect it to make sure it was all fixed up (it was). So yeah. Today = success. Thank you, modern medicine.

h. I’m still here! I promise I haven’t turned into a reblog bot! I’ve just been, you know, living and stuff. I’m putting that in the win column.

Love you, People of My Computer Kingdom.

He starts to whimper as the pain meds wear off and my heart just breaks. Wish I could feel it for you, big guy. #Indiana

Poor sweet boy. He’s clearly in some pain still and in a daze from the meds. I’m grateful to have the day off tomorrow so I can stay with him. #Indiana

This gorgeous, happy boy is having surgery this morning. He has a mass on his shoulder which might be cancerous, so our vet is going to do a biopsy and possibly remove the mass entirely. Dear tumblr folk, please pray or send vibes or hold him in your thoughts or whatever your preferred method of long distance support may be. I love this pup so much and I just want him to be okay.

I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’
