It Could Be Worse. (And probably will be, knowing me…)

I wrote a post earlier today, but I deleted it because, well, I suspect there’s probably only so much whining people can take from someone whose current main problems in life are the facts that:

1. It snowed a lot this week

2. She had the cold (AGAIN), and it made her feel, like, really tired and OMG, doesn’t that suck?

3. She still has Two Heads

4. And a really, red, flaky, nose

5. And eye bags.

6. And RED WEALS. Because OF COURSE the red weals would return, on a week when my hair looked like straw, my face looked like that of someone recently exhumed, and I had two heads. OF COURSE they would.

7. Her husband is currently talking like Jack Bauer and complaining about the presence of “daggers” in his throat.

8.  Gah.

Still. I wrote a big long whiny entry about all of that, and then I read it back and my abiding impression was that, yeah, it could be worse, couldn’t it? Boo hoo, I got a second head! So what, some people don’t even have ONE HEAD, how about that? Oh God, I’m talking to myself again, aren’t I?

Anyway, my point still stands: it’s not been the best week I’ve ever had in my life, but hey, it could be a helluva lot worse so, you know, rather than do a whole lot of whining about it, here are some photos of my dog, instead. You are welcome.


 OMG! Fierce! Scary! Run! Save yourselves if you can!


Could. Not. Be. More. Cute.  (Note the back leg resting on the desk : he lay like that for ages…)


 Umm. Yeah…

  • Awww so cute 🙂 It’s always good to look at your dog, makes you feel happy. Especially when the scene is similar to the second picture. Adorable! 🙂
    Have you seen the pic of Buck travelling?
    I laughed my ass off when I got back to my room and saw this.
    Anyways, I hope you’ll be better in no time!!
    @ Terry: Thank you so much for your comment 🙂 Hope your “daggers” will be gone soon!

    • You are very welcome Nina 🙂 Amber and I love your pictures of Buck, he looks like such a cool dog.

  • You're right, it could be worse. You've still got Rubin, after all! (Oh yes, and Terry). 🙂

    Sorry to hear the weals are back though. They scare me! x

    • I would say they scare me too but Amber managed to hide them quite well 🙂

  • How cute is Rubin, I mean really?!?
    These photos are so adorable.

    Sorry to hear that you are still feeling rubbish. I think there is a serious bout of flu stuff going round, I am sure that I am coming down with something again.

    It could be worse; you could have been born in Albania or even Poland.
    Though I think the “what could be worse” would be, going to the bog , after eating a rancid curry, and finding out you have just ran out of bog paper!
    I could make it sound even worse by saying;
    the only substitute in the whole house is double thickness, 50 grit industrial grade sandpaper.
