Coffee Talk...

Okay now that I've depressed everyone under the sun and made each and every one of you go hug your loved ones and friends... Which I do think one should do on a regular basis... although if you would have asked me about that one this afternoon as my husband missed an exit for a restaraunt that I REALLY wanted to go to I might have said kick them instead... :) In all seriousness I love my husband but he didn't quite realize how HUNGRY I was... 2 hours later... he finally did and apologized profusely.

Okay I got nothing... I'll admit it. I'm still waiting to start injectables and good golly I have nothing to do but wait. So instead I'm going to pose some questions to all of you... feel free to offer advice/wisdom. Pretty pretty please! Talk amongst yourselves! (now if you know where that comment is from then you get a gold star!)

If anyone has any magic cures for dogs with hay allergy that have welts on their belly's and parts then send those cures my way.... somehow we've got to get her to stop running into the damn hay field and all will be better but in the meantime you roll her on her back and you see beat red lobster like welts on her chest and belly. She doesn't seem bothered by it... D and I however are VERY bothered by it. Of course we haven't gone to see a vet about this, but if it doesn't get better in a day away from hay then we'll see about it. Most likely involving D taking her to the vet... which he HATES to do. So right now we're dosing her weight appropriately of course with benadryl, tagamet, and hydrocortisone cream.

Season finales???? Which ones are you watching? Post spoilers I don't care... I love almost ALL tv so let it rip.

Now here's the real meat of my question... other than coffee and well a baby what can I give my husband for his birthday which is next Friday. Seriously... he's getting 4 boxes of k-cups (100 k-cups) as a gift from me... what else should I get him? Any good reasonably priced gifts. Seeing as what he wants from everyone else is money so he and I can get the front loading washing machine he's been salivating after. (One trip into home depot and the boy was hooked on this washer and dryer - who knew he'd become so domesticated!)

Hi Sami. Hmmmm...a birthday gift. When I'm stumped about what to get my husband, I often plan something that we can do together as his gift(eg. a weekend getaway including tickets to a major league baseball game). I hope that gives you some ideas.

As for your question concerning your dog, I'm no help there. I don't know much about the care and ailments of dogs; I can't have one because I'm severely allergic to them.

I'm the opposite of Jill...stumped on the b-day gift but have a suggestion about little Lola. Omega-3's are great b/c they work as anti-inflammatories. One of the girls I used to work w/ gives fish oil softgels to her pooch for his allergies and it works well. Might be worth a shot and probably cheaper than a med the vet would give. HTH!

Mike Myers on SNL!!!
It's been years but I still now the phrase, lol!

I'm sorry I do not have any words of wisdom for you for your poor pup & her allergy.

As to hubby, they're always hard to shop for. Mine likes video games (sports ones) so a new season of hockey or football for PS2 is always a good gift. The front loading washing machine is also my dream too. But most of all, I hope you can give him the gift you both desire the most (I know it will be a little delayed but who cares, right?)

I must have been reading too fast -- totally missed the Mike Meyers bit. LOL

My dod has seasonal allergies, and we put her on childrens anti-histimines. The bottled stuff. We put the "magic" in her water...

Hi Sami. I'm a Michigan lurker who stops in on occassion (found your blog searching for someone else) to check on your life's pursuits and progress.

My husband and I are in our 40's and there isn't anything in this world that he would like better for his birthday than a profession deep muscle massage. Major stress reliever and I can't apply enough pressure to alleviate his aching back.

Also, I concur about the Fish Oil supplements and skin allergies for your dog. My shepherd is allergic to everything and gnaws at her paws constantly. She also has a callused lip. Both conditions have almost completely disappeared since I've been giving her 1 vitamin daily and she loves them right out of the jar plain.

Sam, married to a cop myself, I would second the deep tissue massage. Rod loves 'em, and they help tremendously with backaches most cops have from those stupid gun belts. Rod's b-day was yesterday, and I told him I'd buy the PPV of the UFC fight on the 27th. What about something work related? Rod asked for a new holster for one of his personal guns...(btw - have D check out the photo from a few days back on our blog - my dad thinks it might prompt a call to social services from someone!!)

As far as dog allergies, I've got a boxer that's allergic to anything and everything, and the only thing we've found that works are monthly injections - expensive and a PITA. Sorry... tho might steal Mandy's idea...
