Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends!

I had to take Lulu to the vet last night for an emergency visit. She seemed to be choking on something, and I couldn't see any thing in her throat. They said her tonsils are swollen (I didn't even know dogs had tonsils ) and some lymph nodes are, too. The gave her a steroid shot and sent us home with more steroid pills, so hopefully that'll do the trick. Now I just have to pay the vet.

More Vice-Presidents in the office today, so I'm keeping a low profile.

I hope y'all have a great day!

My middle daughters job interview went well this afternoon, they offered her the position. I'm relieved that she found something. And she's really happy, she loves the store.
I hope everyone is well, "see" you in the morning!
Goodnight, sweet dreams!

Carl had a cannon a couple of years ago , we thought he got rid of it after what happened to Binger and Crown.
A new girlfriend? I wonder if she is as crazy as Carl?

I did it one year as well, hated it, wasn't impressed, and didn't understand how people think it's fun. I like the of staying home and being able to sit in front of my computer, in my pj's if I want to, with a cup of coffee!

It was rather important to her so I looked at it and then tried to go back to sleep. Early night tonight, most definitely!

MERRY dreams!!!
