I know I didn’t get a blog posted last weekend. It’s not that I forgot, I just haven’t been up to anything very exciting so I honestly didn’t know what to write about! We spent the last weekend of January being lazy at home. I think every weekend of February has something going on for us, so The Engineer and I just vegged out and bummed around. I did give the house a good scrubbing, and worked on a couple little projects, but by and large I didn’t do much. See….I told you….not very exciting
I have a couple little craft and house projects that I’m working on, but I though that instead of giving you little mini blogs about a dozen things I would just wait and do one larger post. Much like what my Grandma used to say about hair when my sister and I were babies…..”Ya gotta wait for the good stuff!” Likewise, I have a couple new recipes I busted out this week, but wanted to try them out before I shared them. More waiting for you I guess! 😛
We did have a doggy related incident last week, I guess I could tell you about that. My poor puppachino sliced her paw open! Turns out that the metal frame of my couch is broken, and my little’s paw found the hole and the nasty metal. She ended up with a pretty deep slice between her large foot pad and her ankle. Think like right where our wrist crease is on your hand….owwies! We spent most of Tuesday night trying to get the bleeding to stop, but she was such a brave girl about it. It’s just in a not great spot. We’d get the bleeding to stop and she’d get up and take a step and poof….more blood. Pro tip…if you need to get blood out of something you can’t wash…aka my area rug…..warm salt water will do the trick every time! It’s super science-y, but the salt basically explodes the blood cells and therefore the stain comes right out!
She spent most of Wednesday with a sock on just to keep her from licking at it all day long. She’s been good about leaving it alone mostly, but it isn’t healing up very nicely. It’s right where her foot bends and moves when she walks, so it’s broken open a couple times. She doesn’t seem very bothered by it, and runs and bounces around like nothing is wrong. She’s pretty hesitant to let us look at it, it’s hard to get a view at and we usually have to move some fur and sorta really get in there……but we’ve been checking it every night. I’ve made the executive decision that if it doesn’t seem like it’s healing up by next week I’m going to take her into the vet. I’m not sure there’s a ton that can be done, based on it’s placement, but for me it’s worth taking her in and just making sure that things will be alright with it. I’ll keep you updated on that, but hopefully it just heals up on its own.
