Long time, no blog

Yeah, I've been a blog neglecter lately.

Last Wednesday, my dog had a seizure.  By the time I rushed back home from work, she was fine.  Friday, she had another while I was at work.  Since she hadn't bounced back by Saturday morning, I took her to the vet.  He gave her some medicine and she's getting better.  He also ran some blood work and said something was wrong with her liver.  He said he had some medicine he wanted to put her on and see if that helps her liver.

I drove to the vet's office yesterday to pick it up.  It was Milk Thistle Extract.  I furrowed my brow and said to Brittany "I was imagining something much more sophisticated than some quack herbal remedy."

So I'm guessing the medicine Belle is on now is the only thing keeping her from having more seizures.  I guess that means I have another week and some change with no seizures and then she'll be a ticking time bomb.  I've had her for over 14 years but it still sucks knowing I'll have to let her go soon.

NaNoWriMo, Netgalley, and Not Having Enough Time to Read Everything I Want to Read

I pretty much bottomed out after my last post.  Still haven't gotten the car out of impound.  Still don't know who the killer is for sure.  One of my goals for the coming weekend is to at least get through that chapter.  Jack Whitlock must solve this case!

So I've been on Netgalley for over a year and it has eaten up way too much of my reading time.  Instead of reading things that sound good for free, I should focus on ones that I would actually pay to read.  I'm tired of most of the ARCs I read only being three star reads.
