but I just cannot get into the Friday frame of mind. There's just too much that's been going on. This week has not been a good one overall.
Had I slept better last night, that probably would help a little bit. I also didn't have time to stop and grab something for breccie, so I'm starving, too.
I just got an email at work about an outstanding issue that I raised about our database almost a year and a half ago. They are still debating if it is even going to be fixed. This amazes me. This issue will cause the creation of over a 1000 duplicate records in our system that will have to be merged. There is just *no* time to have to deal with that. Now it looks like I will have to drop everything and go into our user test environment and spend the day figuring out exactly how many duplicates it creates. *fumes*
On the homefront, Minnie has been without a voice since Saturday night. At first I didn't think much of it because that happens from time to time with her, but yesterday morning I decided enough was enough. I set up an appointment with the vet for yesterday evening, and my instinct was right. I knew when Dr. Miller spent a good 3-4 minutes listening to her chest that it wasn't good. He said that it could be allergy-related, but she wasn't showing any other allergy symptoms. He said he really believes it is tracheobronchitis. That's right...my baby has bronchitis. He said her lungs don't sound as clear as they should. He gave her a cortisone shot there in the office and prescribed 10 days of antibiotics (good old amoxicillin). He said if I didn't see an improvement in her voice by Monday or if she got better then worse again, to bring her back in. That didn't make me feel good. If she doesn't get better it could be something worse. *sighs*
I am also having minor surgery a week from today, and it's finally starting to hit me and I am freaking out a little bit. Medical stuff doesn't normally bother me, but there's a *lot* riding on this procedure being successful. It has to work. It just has to.
There's some other stuff that's been going on, but I really don't want to get into it here. I will say that I miss Erin and Juls deeply right now and wish geography weren't an issue. I really need them close. Heh...I even dreamed that I had gone to see Juls and Lee and that I had gone into the city by myself for some reason, but when I tried to get back to Queens, the train I needed to get there stopped running, so I was freaking out trying to find out which ones would get me back. I finally found one that got me back as far as Rockefeller Center, but then I had to take a cab the rest of the way. I know that makes no sense, but there it is. Guess I shouldn't have watched 30 Rock last night...must have gotten that stuck in the back of my mind. :P
