Okay, been away for a spell. I still don't have internet at home, and every single place that has internet is closed by the time I get off work. I tend to be an all or nothing sorta gal, and since I couldn't post daily....

I miss blogging though. I'll try to at least do a weekly entry until we have internet -- which should be soon. (Fingers and toes crossed.)

Lessee.... The weather is cold and snowy. But hey, Northern Minnesota here. Actually I often walk to work through a path in the woods and it's just magical looking. It almost seems like an enchanted place and I've yet to fall on my ass!

After I get off of the path I have to walk a little done a relatively unbusy road and I'd noticed tracks a while back, with a new set added each day. Last week I met the trackee...a gorgeous young buck who ran across the road, hopped over a wood fence, and scampered over the hill in what seemed like the blink of an eye.

I've had all this week off because my job is super slow in December. I do work tomorrow (Friday) though, and then I'm off until Tuesday. And it's still not enough. I've faced the fact that I won't be happy until I can stay at home (with internet) and write to my heart's content.

I lost another dog about a month ago. The second since August. It was the weirdest timing. My husband found a stray in the snow and realized that Zelda was acting strange all in a couple minute period. So we call the vet and ask about the stray...when we could bring him in. She was at home, but said someone would be walking the boarded dogs in the morning.

Well, a half an hour later I'm calling the vet back and crying over my dog. She couldn't walk and was steadily peeing herself. I know this woman thought we were some crazies trying to lure her to the office...I mean, two calls in that short period?

We watched her over night and she was in steadily worse shape. We changed her bedding several times and she was clearly suffering. The vet did come in the next day, although the clinic was supposed to be closed. A few hours later she diagnosed cancer and kidney failure.

A day earlier Zelda was her usually self -- with no signs of illness.

We still have a Sheltie (he is my heart) and a Greyhound.

We got a new harddrive for the desktop -- and now my Sims 2 won't play. Computers make life soooo simple, yes?
