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…

January 2017 Wrap-Up

Rex Update // 1 week after 2nd surgery

It’s been a week since my puppy’s 2nd surgery. He’s doing well now, but it started off pretty rough. We had some cold weather in the days leading up to his surgery, but he seemed to be doing pretty well. Two days before he was scheduled, he was active and playful and fine. We went…

December Wrap-Up

events – A building on campus caught fire. It was accidental and nobody got hurt, but it was a huge fire that I could see across campus, and they had to cut the power to our building for a few hours. – The semester is over! Which means that I’ll be taking time off teaching…
