Callie–our almost 12-year old keeshound has pancreatitis and spent the night at the vet. She seems to be doing well, I called this morning, and they said her demeanor defies her prognosis–she’s active, alert, eating. But I’m very distracted worrying about her and can’t work. I called the amazing managing editor for the book I’m tech-editing right now and told her what’s going on, and she gave me the blessing to stay away from the computer unless there’s an editorial emergency (she’ll call)…
So, I’m cleaning. I’ve opened the doors and windows–it’s 60 degrees here today and sunny, and I’m starting with the basics of clearing up after the hurricane that hit the house while I was busy dealing with the dog yesterday.
Unfortunately, there’s sewer work happening in our neighborhood and our water is turned off, so I can’t do laundry, but there’s plenty more to keep me busy. Is it time to bring out the warm-weather clothes? I’d like to think so, but last week, after an 80-degree day, we had snow. Maybe I’ll just take my chances.
