How much to PUT this doggie in the window?

I took my mom in for her radiation treatment yesterday – my dad wants me to alternate with him. Personally I think it’s more my mom who wants me to alternate with him because he’s driving her nuts. See? Everything is back to (almost) normal. Considering all the CAUTION! signs around about nuclear medicine and radiation zones, the treatments seem be relatively easy on her. She was a little pooped, but that’s the only effect I saw. We stopped at the grocery store on the way home but I wouldn’t let her get out of the car – I made her wait while I picked up the stuff off her list. Because her treatment is at 3pm and it only lasts for about 15 minutes we have time to run an errand or two, have time to visit together at the house, and I can still get to the gym in plenty of time for my class. In fact, it only took me about 10 minutes to get to the gym from my parent’s house so I had time to hop on an elliptical trainer and get in some cardio before my weight training class.

I think the dog is starting to drive Steve crazy. I know I should be looking for a new home for her, but it breaks my heart to do that. She’s such a nervous Nellie that I worry about anyone bonding with her. Steve takes her for a walk after he eats lunch every day and he says he feels like such a loser walking a small puffball dog. He thinks everyone is looking at him and thinking, “Why isn’t that guy at work like everyone else? What’s with the foofy dog? I bet he lives in his mother’s basement and she makes him walk her little shit dog. Looo-ser.” I feel for him – toy dogs aren’t a particularly good accessory for straight men.

Congrats to TranceJen on winning her Social Security case.

And…. A mere 15 days until I leave for the GB Minicon. Squeee!!
