August 26, 2009:
Still cleaning the house. I've managed
to put nearly all of the clothes I organized yesterday into the
proper places. That's about it. I had a Herceptin
treatment today, which is an IV drug that they give me with IV
Benedryl. IV Benedryl kicks my ass. I only get a half
dose these days... the whole dose that they used to give me would
make me lose a whole day sometimes.
When I got home the neighbor's dog was out in
their driveway. This dog is amazing. He has tons of
personality and is completely adorable... and utterly paranoid about
people that aren't his family and pretty much the whole outside
world, which makes me wonder why he puts so much effort into getting
out. I mean, my neighbors are fabulous dog owners. If I
ever get reincarnated as a dog, I would want to live with people
like them. This dog is just an evil dog genius. Today,
for example, he scavenged a piece of wood from the fenced garden
that he plays in during the day, shoved it on top of a decorative
border, and wedged it against the wall to form a ramp... which he
then ran up and vaulted over the wall. Afterward I assume he
sat in the driveway and imagined the end of the world until I
noticed him and put him back.
While I was putting him back, however, I
noticed that they'd accidentally live trapped the other neighbor's
cat. I didn't even know they had a live trap in their yard.
It turns out that the trap is only out at night, they're trying to
relocate some aggressive raccoons (which is something I'm in favor
of, as is the cat's owner)... they just forgot to put the trap away
this morning for once. Heaven forbid I should start pointing
fingers for forgetting something, heh. Bear (the cat) was
pretty much horrified, so I don't think he's going to fall for that
All of the running around in the sunshine,
though, didn't agree with me at all. Also, I think I'm getting
the flu or something. Maybe that's why I've been extra tired
lately. Who gets the flu in the middle of summer?
Whatever I did in my past life had better have been really fun,
because it sure was bad.
