for crying out loud

Crazy much? Oui. The strawberries are coming on strong, Slugger is working like a faithful dog (doesn't say much, but smiles a lot so his shyness is endearing, not creepy) and little beet/carrot/bean/pea/spinach seedlings are greening up the potager. We've got library books, sunscreen, inflated bike tires and all the windows open to catch the breeze. We're lulling into summer. Lulling a lot. Mr. T has redefined lethargy. To the point where I made a doctor's appointment and in the run of tests they've detected it's possibly a thyroid thing or a metabolic disorder. So he gets to have another blood test in 5 weeks to pinpoint his problem. Like a seizure disorder and dyslexia isn't enough of a cross to bear.
I'm still not buying him a puppy, though.

  2. I think a puppy would really like your new pool.

  3. Puppies are the panacea for lethargy of all kinds! Just to be the devil's advocate!

  6. No puppy??? Just think how much fun it would have digging up the potager!

    If you sprinkle black pepper, the puppy won't dig it up. Much. But he WILL eat shoes. Oh Mooooooommmmmm, get a puppy! They're proven to improve all sorts of physical ailments! And then we get to look at puppy pictures!

    How about a kitten?

  7. Egadz. Summer is less fun when you have medical tests. Are you absolutely, positively sure about the puppy???

  8. Pets are a slippery slope. Might as well make that two puppies.

  9. Holly is right--two puppies would be best. Or a rescue dog that's about 3 and a puppy.

    I must say that for my son with Tourette's there are times when it was the dog that made his life bearable.

  10. Hope everything turns out okay.

    I might have the worst behaved puppy EVER and I'm still in favor of the puppy! But I never learn. :)

  11. Perhaps it's good to be sorting this thing out with Mr. T while your family is enjoying summer break, instead of during the mayhem of the school year. Measley consolation, I know.

    Puppies are supposed to be good for the health of humans...

  15. Have you ever seen the movie "My Dog Skip"? If not, you simply MUST.

    I hadn't realized how far ahead our growing season is... I just pulled the last of the spinach out of the garden to process it and harvested the second batch of sugar peas. The peas are everyone's favorite. I planted far more this year than I ever have, and they're getting gobbled up left and right. Sugar Ann they are. (Did I just turn into gardening Yoda??)

    Glad to hear Slugger is working out. I was a fairly quiet gal myself. There's something about quiet people that feels comfortable to me.

  16. I disagree with ALL those commenters. Getting a puppy is like have an infant ALL OVER AGAIN! However, I have a mature dog you might be interested in....;)
