Sadie was having some "evacuation" issues the other day.  I decided to bring some puppy pee to the vet to see what was up.  Turns out the little lady has a urinary tract infection. They called me this morning and told me she had crystals in her bladder (and possibly stones) and that I should bring her in for x-rays.  So I did and luckily, no stones!  But I still have to give her antibiotics twice a day-which is going to be interesting-and change her food. 

 Poor pug.

It was a long and stressful day for Miss Sadie (and me), but thank God it's nothing too serious and everything will be fine.

During a quiet moment this morning I decided to check my bank balance.  I knew there wasn't much (seeing as Friday is payday and my balance is usually pretty pathetic by this point.)  What I didn't expect to see was that my account was overdrawn.  Overdrawn because of a charge to Directv.  


After a momentary freak-out, I called my bank and explained this to them.  I did not authorize any payments to Directv, I told them.  How does this happen?  Apparently someone got hold of my debit card numbers and the super secret 3-digit code on the back and decided, "Well shit.  My cable bill is due!"

I'm one of those dorks who always checks ATM machines to see if it looks like it has one of those skimmer things you always hear about on the news.  I haven't made an internet purchase in forever.  So all that leaves is that I handed it to a store clerk at some point, and the son of a bitch copied my card info.  So they could pay their cable bill.

It's been quite a while, but I'm back.  

After my last post about RI dreams, I decided to just do it.  So I put in for the time off and I spent a whole week doing as little as possible in the biggest little state in the union.   It was wonderful and perfect and there was sun every day but one.  The uni-freckle was achieved.

In other awesome news, remember how I said that I had no computer so my blogging would be limited?  Well worry no more, internet.  My sister (who really is just too good to me, and I'm not just saying that because she might read this, I swear) gave me her old laptop!  Now all I need is something interesting to waste your time with...I'll have to get back to you on that.
