    Dwarf Puffer... Good too. I normally do catfish/cichlid but you need floor space for those.

    Bulkhead finally came out. No gasket, siliconed in. Filled water to the bottom of where I now have a hole in the tank, no leaks so far.

    5 more days and then a week of vacation!!

    I've worked there 1.5 years and haven't taken any time off. Words can't describe how excited I am for a break! It's going to be ALL DOGS, ALL THE TIME! :p

    You know when you worry and worry and worry about something for a really long time then find out that you shouldn't have worried at all because it's all just fine?

    Whew. I feel better now.

    Well.
    I got a raise.
    But my benefits still suck and I have no dental/vision insurance, so.
    Not sure what to do if I get offered something new now, but the way things are going, EVERYBODY ELSE in the world is going to get a job before I do, so I guess it doesn't matter. There will literally be no unemployment before I get a job. But there are jobs I was looking at which now will pay less, so... great. It was a lot easier when I didn't get paid ****. That was a no-brainer. OTOH a job with three weeks of vacation time (compared to one) and dental/vision insurance and lots more paid holidays, well, that's probably worth a few thousand...

    Congrats on the raise? Sorry it's making decisions harder!

    Overall, I had a good day today. Bloo met a friend of ours and loved on him super hard, did my heart good. Maybe she's a real pit bull after all.

    YES. THIS.

    Mixed results from vet on whether Middie had cancer or not, and then suddenly, nope, he's fine. I'm actually sleeping better.

    I don't know what to say. Not yay, but I'm hoping something GOOD opens up for you.

    I made raspberry watermelon popsicles and they are awesome. Also made chocolate and espresso mousse and they are delicious too, although the texture on the espresso mousse seems a bit off compared to the chocolate.
    Good baking/cooking day.

    The bad news is... I've been sick for a week. Down and out sick since Sunday.
    Good news... Went to the doctor today and got a course of antibiotics for a sinus infection. I only get sick once or twice a year (which is pretty good considering I work with miniature germ factories aka kids lol) and it's always sinus infections! So hopefully I will start feeling on the up and up very soon.

    Hannah is having her first slumber party tomorrow night with the two girls that live behind us. So i am really hoping I can at least function tomorrow lol
