I settled on ibuprofen and xanax and this morning, I awakened pain free and long before the 4 legged beast. Refreshed and ready to take on the world again, I have no plans to lift anything heavier than the sock I'm knitting and sitting through Shrek in 3 D.
Note to MLTL: Being unpleasant to my 4 legged friend is not a way to win yourself another invitation to my table. Neither is grimacing and making a sour face when sipping the iced tea I brewed. While I appreciate that you thought the steak I paid an obscene amount of money for was, "too much for you", and that you found that "unappetizing", I noticed you managed to eat every last bit of it. For your sake, and mine, I hope you have a backup plan for dinner today.
