Monday and the disappointment

After spending much time looking and looking for a dog of my own, I have found out that our township has a 2 dog limit per house.  Yup, 2, so basically, no more dogs in the house for us.  He was cute, he was small, his name was going to be Mozart, and he would have been mine but that is okay.  I will survive.  I still have the Maisy girl in the house.  Of course, there is also Q, Calli's guide dog.  Other than that disappointment, I am alright, not great today, but alright.  I am very achy today and yesterday was a wash as I spent most of the time in bed because of a bad headache.  It seemed to have run in the house as Heather BT had a bad one too.  Apparently, the Easter Cantata went well so that is good.

I can't believe that Sunday is Easter!  I am excited about it because it means, wait for it...yes, time with KATHY!!!!!!  (and crew)  I only for sure get to see her on holidays so I make sure that I set time aside. I spend Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Easter with her and her parents and family.  I am so excited!  I think you get the idea!  It will be very fun and cool.

I have had 1 lesson so far and only have 1 more tonight.  Jessie is such a cute girl.  She is 10 and so enthusiastic about piano.  I love that about her.  She loves to play and that really makes me smile.  She loves to practice and that makes me smile even more.  All in all, Jessie is such a joy to teach.  I hope she plays for a very long while.

It seems all my joints hurt today, my wrists, my elbows, my knees, my ankles, my hips, the works.  I am not sure if it is because I haven't had any tramadol today as I am out or what but ugh if that is what it is.  I am really hoping that it improves rather shortly as I am about to take some Advil.  I know Advil doesn't work as well as tramadol, but it is better than nothing.  I called the doctor and the pharmacist and it was a miscommunication between the two so hopefully by tonight it will be filled.  I just ache so much.  My head isn't too bad, considering, but ugh on the rest.


  1. Hey Heather,
    I am sl sorry your feeling bad to day. I as you know am very familer with the disease. Tramadol does nothing for me. Since my back fusion I traded pain for different pain.I wanted to tell you to go to the city hall in your area and tell them that one of the dogs is a service dog for your room mate You can also have your Dr write a letter for you to have a companion pet to aid you with the pain. In other words dogs can help you with taking your mind off pain. I have a tiny pom she goes every where with me and I need her. I also have 2 Standard Poodles one is for pain therapy the other is not a guide dog but he aids me as I walk in the house due to stairs a, He keeps me from getting hurt, Don't give up you deserve a dog
    Luck to you

  2. In our community, there's a limit of 3 dogs per household. However, if you want more than 3, you can apply for a kennel license, and if approved, you get the license and you can have more than 3. Maybe your town has something similar you might look into. If it's a service dog, then that's even more of a reason to investigate with the town further, they may have a bi-law that provides for service animals in addition to the "two per customer" rule for pets :) Good luck! Like Susan said, don't give up. A word of caution though... I have 3 dogs and WOW it is a lot of work! LOL! But I wouldn't change a thing.
