Like others before me, I made the switch to Dreamwidth. I've been meaning to for a while and finally just decided to do so.

In other news, after 2 months of unemployment I finally found a job and am now a server at Olive Garden. I've been there for almost a month and so far it's going well, even if it's making my right pinky finger worse. I still don't know what exactly I did to it back in January, but I know I somehow hurt it (I think it's either a really bad jam or a fracture of some sort) and carrying those heavy ass trays is making it worse.

Two days ago marked a year since Copper passed away and, almost as if it was fate, my parents were running errands when they decided to look at the pet adoption event that was happening. For over a year, every time it was pet adoption day, my parents avoided it and always said no when I brought up getting another dog. But a year after losing Copper, my parents came home with a little 8 week old marble Pom. Her left eye is blue, her right eye is brown, and she is just a little ball of fluff and energy. We named her Cookie Dough, although we just call her Cookie...or Cookie Monster. She's been trying to get Ru and Lilly to play with her all weekend, and neither of them have any interest- although they do check up on her and make sure she's okay, they just won't play with her.

This is Cookie.

ZOMG, she is possibly the most adorable thing I've seen ever. SO FLUFFY!

And congrats on the job, though Boooooo! about your finger. Have you tried strapping it to your ring finger? It might help (if it's not soft tissue damage).

Hmmm, just a thought, but you could perhaps try some of that sticky stretchy sports bandage stuff you can get at the chemists for supporting joint injuries. I've no idea what the brand would be over in the US, but I can have a hunt later for an example (I'm currently on a train travelling from practically one end of the country to the other, so internetz not good). I cracked several bones in my hand about 10yrs ago (inc. my little finger) in a riding accident found it worked wonders - cut it into strips and used it to bind my fingers together. Was nice and grippy, and also super flexible (way moreso than tape) - enough for me to go windsurfing two weeks later!


EDIT: found it! This is the stuff I'm talking about: http://www.physical-sports.co.uk/sports-first-aid-products/tape-strapping/elastic-cohesive-bandage/

It's made of magic.

So glad you found a new job. I also recently started a job after time off. I went through a temp agency and am prepping medical records for audits. It's tiring which is good in it's way. It makes me think about what I might really want to be doing to make money.

Very cute little dog. So happy your family is ready for a new one.
