Well, she’s officially on the petfinder website. We’ll see if we get any applications for her.

She has attached herself to me already. Last night when I got home from soccer, the boys said she didn’t sleep the whole time I was gone - she just kept watching the door. Poor thing.

Both boys today asked if we could keep her. Of course they say that with every dog we foster. She is awfully cute. But no.

Mugless Mugshot Monday

Started watching Gilmore Girls. Hard to believe I never got into it. So far so good. 

Hoping to get caught up on Walking Dead tonight.

Got my hair cut Saturday. Haven’t had it this short in a while. I think I like it.

Have my followup assessment tonight with my trainer. I’m scared and excited to see what progress I’ve made, if any.

Later, nerds. Make good choices!

I don’t know if it’s just that I’m old or what…

…but I’m so over gratuitous violence in movies.

Also, fight scenes in kitchens/restaurants/etc are too predictably gory.

OMG YOU GUYS

Why does your reflection move when you move ONLY the mirror? Shouldn’t it move when YOU move since it’s your reflection?!?

THIS DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO ME SCIENCE PEOPLE PLEASE EXPLAIN

Picked up this little sweetheart tonight. We’re fostering her until she’s adopted out. She was rescued today along with a couple of adult males. She’s 4 and likely was used for puppies.

Her nails are way too long and misshapen, she’s very meek and pulls back when you reach for her, but will nuzzle right into your neck and follows me everywhere. We gave her a bath - she’s just a wisp of a thing and she was filthy. 

Breaks my heart. Thank goodness there are people out there that find these dogs and get them out of those awful places and into homes where they’ll be a loved member of the family.

She didn’t have a name. We’re calling her Mellie, for Melanie Wilkes from Gone With the Wind. Seemed fitting.

CDC Director Criticized For Blaming 'Protocol Breach' As Nurse Gets Ebola

"You don’t scapegoat and blame when you have a disease outbreak," said Bonnie Castillo, a registered nurse and a disaster relief expert at National Nurses United, which serves as both a union and a professional association for U.S. nurses. “We have a system failure. That is what we have to correct.”

This is my issue with what happened.

First, finger-pointing and blaming are rampant in our healthcare system and it’s a HUGE reason that errors still occur at such an alarmingly high rate - if you single out an individual to punish without looking at WHY it happened, you solve nothing.

Second, whatever happened - whatever kind of “protocol breach” - they need to look at what the system issue was that allowed that breach to happen. This was the only, single, solitary patient in this entire country with ebola and one of his caregivers was infected. I’m not being alarmist, just stating a fact.

Sure, it’s more satisfying and simple to blame the person because then we can all sit back and say “wouldn’t happen to me” but we all know that’s really just bullshit. Whatever happened, that person doesn’t deserve to have ebola.

Did we learn NOTHING from Footloose?!?

HA!! I see what you did there…

trivialbob replied to your post “So…exhausted…”

Three soccer games… Total score 2-1?

…but this is indoor, so the scores are higher. Indoor teams sometimes score that low but it’s usually higher. In one game on Friday we scored double digits and in another game gave up double digits. Just depends.

Smartass.

So…exhausted…

I played three soccer games Friday night and three tonight.

Yesterday I basically sat on my butt and ate.

Weekends are awesome.
