We took last week off to get this large lump removed from Lucy's arm area we went up early ran blood tests as usual only to find that they are pretty sure it's cancer and she was not comfortable doing surgery I don't know about you but if the doc not comfortable I'm not so we just came home



So I good friends dad passed so visitation /funeral then took my sugar cat to vet major sneezing and dehydration I just picked her up yesterday
Oh then all this ice bucket challenge
All the waitresses where I work got the ice tractor bucket dump. That's a lot of cold water
Well oh and is have to go to work \|~€£¥
