It’s Not Chocolate

It’s not chocolate on my lip, it’s blood.

I wish it was chocolate – Dove dark chocolate to be exact.

So I busted my lip for the first time in my life the night before last during all the commotion over Béni. I honestly don’t care, it was a small price to pay to have our sweet puppy here. However, I do wonder over the course of the past 2 days how many people have thought I had food stuck on my bottom lip. It was swollen a little still yesterday, but today the mark has shrunk, as has the swelling.

I’m really glad today is Friday, because I’m in desperate need of a sick day, which I don’t have. I have been battling the onset of a cold the past few days, and now I am feeling awful. I slept 8.5-9 hours last night (was in bed before 9, slept around 10 until 6:30) and woke up multiple times during the night to blow my nose. When I woke up today, I had the hardest time making myself move. I hurt – I’m achy. When I was in the shower, all I wanted to do was just lay down and let the water pour over me the rest of the day.

I was moving so slowly this morning that it took me an extra 30-45 minutes to get ready. Yikes.


To everyone who left us sweet notes about Béni, thank you. We really appreciate it.


Today is also surgery day for our sweet puppy. He’s getting the ol’ snip snip. On the paperwork at the vet, the symbol for the surgery was the male symbol with a line through it. Sad! Our dog is still going to be a boy, thank you very much!

Anyway, we dropped him off about 11:20 and will call at 4 to see if he’s awake. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring him home then. He’ll have stitches which I think we’ll have to get removed a day or two before our trip to the States. Béni won’t be coming with us – he’s got a pretty sweet gig here while we’re gone, but I’ll blog about that another day.


The last bit of news for today is that John has to be to work AT 4 AM today. Ew! He got up at 3:30 this morning. Isn’t that awful? He’s hoping to be able to leave work around 2:30 PM and head home for a nap. I sure hope he gets to do that. Working a 10.5 hour day starting at 4 AM is just dreadful.

    too bad it’s not chocolate. i think it’s bad enough to have a fat lip. it should at least taste like chocolate!!
    i hate the head swimmy feeling i get when i’m in the beginning stages of a cold. as bad as you feel, i bet you have the flu, too. boo!! sorry you feel bad. hopefully you’ll be able to join john for a nap later! and maybe some nice soup or something soothing.
    when are y’all coming back to the states? heading to texas, no doubt. how long will you be stateside?
    hope your week ends better than the middle part. glad to hear béni is doing alright (well, at least as far as the incident with the dog) and he tolerates the “snip” with his usual sparkiness!
