May 2017 Wrap-Up

events – I turned 24. And I feel like I’m finally old. I’ve reached adulthood. I’ve crossed that threshold of no looking back. – I was terribly sick. Which doesn’t happen to me very often but it really took it out of me. I think it was a sinus infection? Maybe the flu? I don’t know. I…

currently: soup, sleep, and snuggles

Hey guys. I just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve been a bit silent recently because I’ve been pretty sick all week long. I woke up with a sore throat on Sunday, spent most of my day off on Monday in bed, and came home early from work on Tuesday. I tried to go…

24

Yesterday was my 24th birthday. I didn’t do anything too special. I went to work, came home, spent some time with Rex and Deacon. But I took time off today and Monday so I can have an extra long weekend to relax and visit with family. 🙂 I kind of went wild on books for…

April 2017 Wrap-Up

events – I got a new phone! I’ve been using the Amazon fire phone for the past four years and it basically became useless. It was an okay phone, but they didn’t sell a lot of them, so they completely stopped updating it. Most of my apps stopped working, and I didn’t have access to Google…

March 2017 Wrap-Up

events – I got my own domain name! If you’re reading this, you’ll see that my blog has changed quite a bit in the past month. I’m now Mixed Margins and am using Bluehost + WordPress instead of Blogger. There were a lot of reasons for the switch, and everything isn’t exactly how I want it yet,…

Rex Update // 8 weeks after 2nd surgery

Rex is officially off of cage rest! I took off work on Thursday to drive him to the vet so they could do final X-rays. Everything is aligned correctly and healing well, which means he doesn’t have to stay in his crate anymore and can gradually go back to his normal activity level. We are…

February 2017 Wrap-Up

events – I went to a basketball game back home so that was fun. I hadn’t been to one in a long time. I understand very little of the technical details, but I really enjoyed it. – Deacon got me flowers for Valentine’s Day and a 3-month subscription to Petit Vour. They send a a…

Rex Update // 6 weeks after 2nd surgery

Rex only has two more weeks of crate rest left! (despite how it appears in my pictures, he does actually spend the majority of his time in his crate.) He has started being extremely fussy lately. I think each day he tries to hit a higher squeaky cry so we’ll let him out. And apparently,…

Rex Update // 4 weeks after 2nd surgery

Rex has now crossed the halfway point in his healing process! He still spends most of the time in his crate, but I’ve been letting him sleep in my office with me whenever I’m working on the computer. He’s so much more relaxed there. He’s even started popping his leg up again whenever he wants…
