Menu This Week

I have been looking forward to the weather getting cooler for a while now. I can actually get in the kitchen and cook again. Now I'm having a hard time trying to come up with things to cook. I get tired of the same thing every two weeks or so.

This is what is on the meal plan for this week.

Home made pepperoni calzones. (no recipe link just pizza crust, cheese, sauce, topping of choice, fold, cook)
Chicken Enchiladas Which by the way, this has to be the best recipe I've found for them. Seriously.
Spanish Rice Bake
Brown Sugar Meatloaf
Apple Butter Pork Loin

Mackenzie Update

The vet called a little while ago. I knew in her voice that it wasnt good. She didnt even have to tell me. They got the test results back from the lump itself, it was a stage 2 mast cell tumor.

I'm devastated.

She said that they did remove it all so that's good. She said that it could come back, it could not. I already have an appointment for Friday to get his sutures looked at so she wants to check him for more lumps. Which I would have thought she would have done that to begin with but that's me. Also said she wanted to check his lymph nodes. She wants to check him every 6 months after. Unless another lump pops up then I have to take him back immediately so it can be removed.

I googled it and it doesnt look bad. Not that bad. (the end results that is) This type of tumor is almost common in some dogs. Schauzers being one of them.

I hate it. I'm so sad. Just heartbroken.

I caught him eating cat shit and didnt even get on to him. lol

Life as we know it

Life, such a complicated little thing. ;)

Noah is adjusting good. Actually he's spoiled rotten. You can't walk in the kitchen with out him absolutely hollering at you. He expects food at any point and time during the day. Cute now, will be annoying later. :P

Mackenzie had surgery Thursday. He had a lipoma. We, I, had let it go so long that it had actually started to die off and become infected. I feel like a shitty "mom". :( I just didn't want to have to face it if it was cancerous. Yeah I know, even more of a reason to get it checked out.
I brought him home Friday and it was gawd awful. The incision is huge. Huge! He's on antibiotics and pain meds. The pain meds wore off around 7 last night. It absolutely broke my heart. He was hurting so bad he wouldnt jump on the couch and I was scared to pick him up thinking I would hurt him. So today I'm giving him half in the morning and half this evening. No sense in him hurting like that.
The blood work came in and he's OK. So that's good.

Lacy is actually playing with Noah. HUGE step for her. We were having problems there for a while where she was attacking me. Like, huge biting, stalking attacks. Once on my face. K was ready to have her put down. We dont know what caused it or triggered it.

Me and K are doing good. Typical life stress but, good.

Meet Noah

Noah is a hand full. I had forgotten how exhausting having a "baby" in the house was. All of our animals are at least 3 years old.

He has honestly done pretty good since he's been home. So, we'll see :)

Thought about it..

I thought about either deleting this blog or starting over with a new one. I've kind of given up on this one. I feel like it got started at a totally different point in my life.

But I have decided to change it up and stick with it. I can always change the title of it. If I actually stay with this one and actually make a real blog out of it I will change the link, move it, later.
