As you know, I'm a pretty good-natured fellow. My mom says I have two settings - exuberant and asleep. Well, I'm still like that but my mom has been having a week that merits this expression:
First, there was my Uncle Alex's bike accident. That was very scary and stressful. Fortunately, he's out of the hospital and okay. (He has to get a metal plate put in his shoulder once his road rash heals some. It might be kind of neat to always have a plate with you for feasting, I think.)
Then, my mom's crate on wheels started to act funny. On Monday, she took it to the shop to have it looked at. The mechanic drove her to work in her crate, then returned to the shop. But it turns out that the car was beyond repair due to structural issues in the undercarriage.
Since my mom doesn't have a car, she doesn't get to come home at lunchtime and give me bellyrubs. This is completely unacceptable. I hope she gets new wheels soon!
