    Knee is better -- but not pain-free.

    So . . . I get corralled to bring in the groceries for The Overlords.

    Seriously?

    She's fine now, still a bit fat and sleepy but looking more like a dog and less like a potbelly pig.

    Hope your knee is better!

    I just want to say that today was the worst day of my life (or at least in recent memory).

    That's a relief!

    It's slowly getting better. Everything would likely stay in place better if I didn't keep getting called on to be the family mule :(

    Going to try to to the gym in a little bit and work on it some more. The leg extensions really help getting everything to click into place -- as long as I do them carefully, and the adductor/abductor is helping strengthen those connectors and muscles to keep it there.

    DIY therapy, lol. One of the hazards of no medical, but I'm probably better off doing it myself in the long run, and one of the PTs there has been helpful.

    Between bringing in the groceries (did you really have to buy ALL the things????) and the 101 "you need to come and help me with this" demands my knee is THROBBING and it hurts. A lot. :(

    And I feel like a wuss.

    I want to do some research on something because no one I know has ever experienced it before and I'm clueless but I know it's all just going to suck and I'll find nothing good and freak out more and I should just remain blissfully ignorant until I talk to my doctor again.

    Okay I feel a little better after ignoring the rules of grammar and stringing together a mega run-on sentence.

    :eek: The moving around that went on in my knee tonight . . . but it quit hurting afterward. Back to a little discomfort now, but not like it was. It's a little freakish.

    The hinge on my DS broke last week. Instead of going to GameStop to try and buy a used one I ordered a replacement shell online to try and fix it myself. Got it all back together and something wasn't 100% right so I took it back apart, got it 90% back together... and forgot to make sure the power switch was in the right spot and broke the internal power switch. So now it's busted for real.
    I wasted my entire night working on it and it's dead.

    I'm really irrationally upset about this because this DS has been with me for ages... I bought it the very day they came out with a pink DS... took it everywhere with me, been on planes and trains and to all the hotels I've stayed at for agility and gone camping with me and blah blah blah. It feels like I'm losing a friend. Cry.

    Have you tried looking for a cell phone repair place? Not one of the store owned ones but one run by an independent individual/company. I know that quite a few around also do some console/hand held repair too and they might be able to help you out. I know I had one help me when my PS3 got a YLOD and when my old PSP needed a new power switch and screen.

    It did take a few days but if it is one that you really want to keep *understandable* you may try that route first before giving up.

    I am dog-sitting for a really great shepherd mix. She is sweet, her home is really nice (and they bought me food) she is very stable, loves to play fetch (and will bring it back) isn't really "into" other people so all around, a great dog to take places and work with.

    BUT. BUT. Especially at her house... she is a whiner.

    WHINEEEE
    WHINEEEEEEEE
    WHINEEEEeeEEEEEEE

    Whine when she wants food .Whine when she's bored. Whine when she wants to play. Whine whine whine it drives me nuts.

    She also likes to wake me up at 6:45. but mostly it's the whining

    She does NOT know how to do anything on her own. Self soothing is not even a concept. She has enough toys and treats to start her own pet store but will do nothing but stare at me and WHINE unless she is asleep or being played with.

    LMAO, Fran. Fable would drive you nuts. She's very vocal, makes all sorts of sounds, but different pitches of whining are the most common. She even whines when she's eating and has a mouth full of food. :p

    My vent:
    I'm just freaking out because I was told one of two people would give me a ride to church tomorrow, and I cannot get a hold of either of them. I need to know by tonight and it's driving me nuts. PEOPLE ANSWER YOUR PHONES.

    I think whining is one of the most awful traits in a dog to live with.

    I think I'd rather deal with things like reactivity than whining. And I live with FRODO! :lol-sign:

    LOL!
    For some reason it doesn't bother me at all. I think it's endearing. The only problem is someday, someone's gonna hear and think I'm torturing my dog. :rofl1:
