    I can’t believe a doctor said that to you about your knees! That’s so annoying. TGIF, right?! I hear ya. I’m looking forward to some time with friends and family this weekend, and I’m very excited to have three-day weekend!!

      That sounds like a good plan for the long weekend. I will be doing the same!

      As for the doctor, he was a total ass. Everything about his “bedside manner” was terrible and I left feeling so discouraged and depressed. I just hope the new specialist will be better. 🙁

    I’ve had the same week!!! And the weather here sucks on top of it all.

    I thought I was going to lose it yesterday and I’m not a crier – I rarely let me emotions get the best of me. It’s just one frustration after another.

    Glad it’s almost over – have a great long weekend!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I’m sorry to hear that! I hope your weekend is a good one and makes up for this week!

    Nothing outright bad happened to us this week but it was still kinda crappy. Glad you got some puppy therapy in though to make you feel better! Love Chewy so much! Wish we were closer and could have a third dog because he’s so cute!

    Also, yay! I won! Emailing you now. 🙂

      Excellent! Thanks for getting me the info.

      I hope Chewy finds a home fast. He was super smart and knew “Sit” and some other commands. Someone needs to love him!

    I want to take Abby the dog home! So cute! I live in Portland, and you’ve definitely inspired me to volunteer at Pixie.

    Have a wonderful long weekend! Although I wish it wasn’t raining… 🙂

    1. Lisa Eirene

      That’s awesome! I hope you do. It’s a fun place to volunteer and I always feel better after spending some time with the pups. Just email Pixie Project and let them know you’re interested in volunteering. They respond pretty quickly.

    Really sorry to hear about your week, Lisa! I sure hope things will look up again! Never surrender! 🙂

    And those dogs …I’d probably take them all home!

      It’s definitely getting harder and harder not to take one home after volunteering…

    As long as there is no thunder or lightening, I love walking in the rain. I am glad that the dog walking turned your mood around – hooray for a long weekend! Hugs!

      Funny! I’m the opposite. I’d much rather walk in thunder and lightening…I guess walking in the rain wouldn’t be bad if I had good rain shoes…

    No but Saturn in in Scorpio for a while so those with signs in Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius are in the danger zone worst to less worse in that order 🙁

    i LOVE these kinds of projects! I have seen them in other cities, but not where I”m living. I just moved here to time to start digging around and see what’s available!! a good walk with a pooch can cure so much!
