Catching Up...

OK, I think catching up is the title of at least half of my personal posts. It's been a very up and down month so far. My much anticipated knee repalcement has been indefinitely postponed by my surgeon while he waits to get me in to consult a third surgeon - this one specializing in osteotomies who is in London (Ontario). I'm beyond frustrated and having a lot of days where I just want to stick my head in the sand and say go away and leave me alone. On the plus side the iron transfusion does seem to have helped a bit with the exhaustion. I'm wondering how long the effect will last?

The music man is spoiling me rotten which I must admit is very very nice. I am thoroughly enjoying it. I'm not sure I deserve it but I'm definitely liking it lol

You can see our great dog show info over on the dog blog. We had a pretty spectacular weekend. I can't wait to be able to show my own dogs again. I've been putting off showing Dublin because I wanbted to do it myself but now it's looking like that may be a long while off so I may yet bite the bullet and let someone else show him.

I'm whipping through Rick O'Riordan's Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. Very enjoyable. I'm reading about one per night. So, it's a fast read but fun. I've discovered that there are a lot of great kids books out there right now. I suppose it indicates something simple about me, but I do love reading them anyway. They're a nice break as I wait before plunging into Kim Harrison's latest which will definitely not be for kids.

I watched American Idol last night. I'm not a regular American Idol watcher but I do tend to watch if I'm around once they get down to the last bunches. This week's theme was the Rolling Stones and frankly, most of them sucked it big. The Stones should be about passionate energy that leaves you hot, sweaty and satisfied. Most of them tried to slow it down and had little energy. Yech.
