So, on Thursday, we took Zoe to the dr. Now, my family has been going to the same vet since before Isabelle and Zoe were even a twinkle in their mother's eye. My parents have a 15+ year old Yorkie and she has always gone to Dr. D. Okay. Well, recently, in the last year or so, Dr. D has been in the process (IMO) of turning his practice over to a different doc, a woman who is very nice but whom I don't really trust. One day I walked into the vet's office and it was painted all of these crazy colors and there was weird furniture, i.e. a huge red couch that is super modern, not really old Dr. D's taste. He's like 65. And then we started hearing that this new doc basically tries to "up-sell" you on everything. Oh, you have a new dog from a shelter? Why not pay $60 to find out exactly what breed he/she is or is made up of. Oh, your dog is really sick and there's nothing we can do? Why don't we try all of these experimental procedures that cost an arm and a leg and probably won't actually work. Oh, your dog throws up all the time? Let's do a scary procedure on her where we stick a tube down her throat that is ridiculously expensive. Oh, your dog has terrible allergies and you've been in with her several times since November of last year and know exactly what she needs? Well why don't you come in anyways for a freaking $80 visit where I scrape a hole into your dogs skin above her eye that will cause a terrible scab and then I'll give you something else to try and then if that doesn't work, just call back next week for the stuff we know will work. Okay. Those last 2 were my actual experiences. Sorry for the ridiculously long rant. My point is that I don't trust this new doc and I never know if she's trying to do what's best for my dogs or if she's just doing what's going to make her the most money. I think we're switching vets.
On Friday we worked on the bookcases! All day, from like 8am to almost 8pm, and then went out to dinner with Lee's friend that was in town! I barely made it to 10:30. Then we got up on Saturday and worked from about 9-2 and we were finished!! It wasn't even that difficult, once we figured out how to use some of the power tools! :) There was a slight learning curve there! So they are built, but I haven't sanded or painted them or anything. I do believe that once upon a time, I would have had no problem continuing to work on them until they were complete and installed, but I must be getting old or something :) I was so exhausted after that day and a half. We didn't even touch them again the whole weekend!
On Sunday Lee played golf for 8 hours. Yes, 8! He is crazy. I laid around the house and enjoyed the quiet. I read a lot, and did laundry and picked up the house. Pretty lazy Sunday.
Oh! Our wedding pics are ready! We looked at them last night online and I will say that they are much better than I expected! I knew I was doing myself a courtesy by expecting the worst ;) Anyway, a cd is being delivered to me, so I will likely post
