Took a hike with Mimi today.

Well, I guess not all that well! I'll keep working on it.

Life in Cali (from Mimi) [Jan. 12th, 2008|05:46 pm]
[Tags|]

Hi all,

We made it out to Cali on-schedule after a wonderfully uneventful 4-day drive. Sammy (our dog) didn't seem to mind the long days of driving and probably actually took it better than we did.

Trip Stats:
  • Greatest One-Day Hawk Count: 114
  • Lowest Morning Departure Temperature: 10deg. (St. Louis)
  • Highest Gas Prices: $4.69/gal (Mohave desert)
  • Tumbleweeds demolished: 6
  • Brian's Favorite Lunch: Green Chile Enchiladas in Albuquerque
  • Cactus Prickers in Sammy's foot: 2
  • Nights Brian threw his back out: 1
  • Radiolab Podcasts: 4

Our temporary housing is pretty nice and close to lots of things to do. It looks like we are all set to move in to our apartment on the 18th! I'm very excited to get truly settled in. Brian's first few days of work have gone well and he seems to be adjusting to the real world (6:30 alarm clock awakenings, etc.) just fine. Meanwhile, I'm adjusting to the unemployed world. I've cracked open the GMAT book to discover that it's just as frustrating as I remember.

We've taken our first booking for a March visit - keep 'em coming!

Treases out!
Brian & Mimi

Does anyone have an Amazon Kindle?  I want to see this thing for myself, if you know where I can get my hands on one.
Right on!

plastic, peanut butter, and poison [May. 31st, 2007|12:44 pm]
[Tags|]

oh boy.

so i awoke this morning to mimi screaming "samantha!"

our smart little puppie had eaten one of the raid ant baits we put out in the house. never bought them before until last week. turns out that there is a tasty little peanut butter in the center to draw the ants in.

so, after so mild freaking out, we made some phone calls.  she called the vet; I called Raid.  looks like sam should be just fine with only one trap's worth of Abamectin, which is actually used in smaller doses to treat heartworm in other dogs.  the biggest worry is any possible scraps of plastic she injested ... the trap is pretty badly chewed up.

so, i'm at home today watching her to make sure nothing funny happens, and feeding her soft bread from time to time to coat the plastic in her stomach.  so far so good.  this 17 year old dog just keeps on surviving no matter what.
