S&G 1

(no subject)

Last night I dreamed I had a newborn baby boy. He was probably 30 or 40 pounds, but I didn't remember having him, I just remembered leaving the hospital the same day after giving birth to him. I didn't know any of his details, though, like how much he weighed or how long he was, because I'd forgotten to ask the doctors before I left. And I didn't name him, either. He was just this big heavy sack of potatoes, to me, apparently. :D I put him in his car seat (like a toddler car seat where he sat up with the straps on) and bundled him up, and drove around, and kept forgetting to get him out of the car when I went places. Then at one point I was walking around with Tom Cruise, with his arm around me and mine around his all buddy-like, and we were chatting, and all of a sudden I remembered I'd left the baby in the car, and I ran to it and opened the door and took the plastic off the baby's head (apparently I'd wrapped his head tightly in a black garbage bag or something) and he was dead. I wasn't all that broken up about it, even though he was only like a day old.

I'm so weird.

It rained last night everywhere in the state, apparently, except for Corvallis! Redmond got rain, Portland got rain, Eugene got rain... how annoying! I want RAIN. I want FALL and WINTER. I'm done with sunshine and hot. I WANT SNOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW!

Note to myself, perhaps for the vet:

Remmy had a little sore on her upper right foreleg the other day, and she was licking at it pretty bad, so we took her to Petco yesterday to get an elizabethan collar to keep her from licking, thinking it might be a hot spot. Tonight I put a cool compress on it and noticed that not only had the sensitive, red area increased to an inch and a half or so across, there was a small dark area on the edge that looked like it might be a bug or something. I used the tip of a knife and my tweezers to pull it out - it looked a lot like a bee sting, though it didn't seem to have any barbs (but how else would it have stayed in her skin that long?). It was black and small and had what I think was the venom sac on the end of it. I think I got all of it, and now I'm going to put some baking soda paste on it to see if that helps.
