Quick Updates

We took Poptart to the vet today to get his stitches out and he has a clean bill of health. We need to keep his wound covered for a bit longer because the other dogs keep trying to lick it, but he doesn’t need to wear the inflatable donut around his neck anymore, And, more importantly, he doesn’t need to be confined to his kennel anymore. Though we’ll probably keep him there at night for a while because I feel uneasy having him sleep in the bed because I move around a lot.

I, dear reader, am exhausted. Doug and I have been slowly but surely purging things out of the house — we’ve gone through the cat’s room, the kitchen, the dog’s room, and part of what used to be my office, but it is slow going. I look around me and I see so much more that has to be purged and we’re slowly running out of time to get stuff out of the door. We haven’t even looked at the shed yet. But y’all, I’m tired. Like exhausted. Some days it’s enough that I get out of bed and into the living room. I try to get dressed every day, but sometimes I just don’t. That was the one thing I’ve always tried to do — get dressed. I didn’t even have coffee today. I just couldn’t work up the energy to run the coffee machine. I’ve been falling asleep all day. I mean, I took Poptart to the vet and brought him back, but it was a colossal effort. Y’all don’t even know. I went to bed early last night too, but as I said, I’ve been falling asleep all day. I just don’t sleep during the day. I made an appointment with my doctor to have my thyroid checked again because this tired business just cannot continue. We’ll see what goes on from there.

In other news, the job that Doug was supposed to have until January is letting him go at the end of June. I dunno if I’ve told y’all this, but there it is. He’s going to try and get another contracting position, but man is that getting old fast. We found out not too long ago that they were going to let his whole team go last month (like three weeks after they hired him) but his manager convinced the higher ups that his team was more important than they (the higher ups) think, and should be kept around for a little while longer. Even with the extra time, the team won’t be able to finish what needs to be done, but what can you do? Anyway, this means we’ll be out of health insurance again in a little over a month. *Sigh* This is getting tedious. I just need to remember to get my meds filled before we lose our insurance.

Bellevue College catalog cover

In other other news, I got this in the mail today and found it amusing, so I thought I would share. College courses sure are different from when I went to community college. 🙂 I have no idea what Cannabis 101 is about, but hey, whatever gets them in the door, right? I mean is it the study of cannabis? The history? How to open a cannabis store? I dunno. I suppose I could look at the course description, but what’s the fun of that? 🙂 Hmmmm, it’s not on their website. Let me find that catalog again… Okay, so it’s a “basic, general information” course about how weed works, the difference between CBD and THC, and the medicinal uses of weed. It’s in the catalog, but not on the website… Anyway, I found the cover amusing because, wow I never thought I’d see the day one could take a course in weed. And hey, I’m glad that day is here.

    It’s probably about growing it. Big money in the industry nowadays. My son rents out a few acres to a pot farmer and they make money just for leasing the land. It’s all legal here now, too, which makes it easier.

    When I was in college I had to take a social studies class. One assignment was a pro/con debate about something ‘in the news’ that caused a lot of fuss when talked about. I chose weed. I’m from Utah, and I suspect (with good reason) that pot will never be legal here. They tried, in the local election last Fall, to get medical marijuana legalized and y’all may have heard the crashing “NO” even on the East coast. We’s backward that way. ANYWAY I had some first hand knowledge of the subject…I never cared for pot, I don’t like smoking in general and the stench of that stuff…P.U.! But I watched hubby smoke every day for the length of our marriage. I saw the long term effects it had on his physical person and on his mental acuity. It’s really true how short term memory fails after a lengthy addiction to pot. I presented these facts (backed up with rigorous research), but I also presented the case studies of people with terminal illness who have benefited from pot usage. My own father’s cancer was one of those. His appetite and his overall feeling of strength and well being was improved after he had pot given to him (unknowingly, but hubby wasn’t ethical very often) in spaghetti sauce and then ground up and in capsule form. Hubby told him it was a natural herb (which was strictly true) that might help Pop’s nausea. There are pros and cons to most stuff. But I’m pretty surprised a college is offering a course in weed 101. And I’m sorry about your fatigue, Willow. You KNOW I sympathize. Mine’s improved for now, but I still can’t function well if it’s early.
