Happy Black Friday

Wake up you Sleepy Heads!
as you know last month I fell in front of the grocery and banged myself up pretty good but what you dont know is that a week later I was taking Honey out to the Kennel (we bring them in at night because they're pets but they need to go out  during the day for exercise and they're good guard dogs but they suck at being attack dogs cause they're Beagles) speaking of being Beagles you know what they like to do right?  they see a Rabbit and go nuts trying to chase it it's in their nature so I was taking Honey out to the Kennel..I saw the rabbit first and I thought..my goodness that rabbit looks cold..Honey saw it and ran after it..the problem was I was holding on to the leash..down I went..2 cracked ribs and I haven't been doing anything but popping Advil like it's going out of style and using a cane to get around, Im better now it's going to take about 6 - 8 weeks before Im healed
as you can see I found a kitten, someone dumped it in our area before the snow it, I never should have picked it up but I did and now we have Baxter (who has a cold so hes going to the vet this weekend, I'll hobble on down there on my good side)

a close up of Jack Jack and Baxter, Jack Jack like to grab him with his mouth and put him on the floor then push him with his nose to make him move, Jack Jack and I have had a serious discussion about this and he's getting better.(he hasn't stopped though its like he's got his own pet to play with)
 I've also  bought a car for my dollhouse build, I entered the undersized urbanite contest before I fell, it's been to painful to do anything so I did some buying to try and get things together before the may deadline

I also found this at the dollar store, its the right size for 1:12 scale and it only costs a dollar :)


 One last photo of Baxter, I should tell you that he really isn't all that sweet. once in a while he'll sneeze on me..one time he got me in the face..I gagged..hobbled off to the bathroom and took a hot shower..Baxter followed me and it looks like the steam helped him (cause it really helped me, Advil..hot showers and my heating pad..Im in heaven)
Im starting to feel better to Im going to try and do some busy work..nothing major until I can sit up straight without doing the pain dance (cracked ribs really hurt)

take care and dont spend too much at the stores

Hugs Marisa :)

  1. Dear Marisa,
    I read you're still in pain. I hope you can sit up straight soon. Cracked ribs aren't pleasant. Taking care of all your animals must be hard at the moment. Get well soon!

  3. Marisa,
    I do hope that you feel better soon. It is certainly no fun to not be able to go about your daily life activities. Baxter is so sweet as is Jack. You are very kind to take him in & I'm pretty sure you saved his life. :-)
    Hugs,
    Lisa

  6. Oh Oh Marisa, you are such a non-starter (I don't know if the translator translated it well), I mean a person with bad luck. Cracked ribs really are painful, I hope it will be better soon.
    Take good care for yourself and enjoy your pets.
    Hugs, Ilona

  7. Oh my, this is for sure not your year... poor you! My very best wishes for a quick recovery - and above all I keep my fingers crossed that there will be no more accidents, you've already have your share of them, that's for sure! Welcome to Baxter - and I'm curious to see your newest purchases in your scene.

    Hugs

  8. Don't you ever get a break? Come on! I hope you have (another) speedy recovery...just try not to take another spill in the meantime. I have a dog named Blackjack Bouvier but we call him Jack-Jack, too. Your new kitten is so sweet --who doesn't love a kitten? That was very sweet of you to take him in. Great finds at the dollar store! Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving in spite of your set back.

    XOXO,
    John

    1. Thank you John, it was a festive day with no drama but a lot of family members told me about their bruised ribs (I thought about hitting them with my cane but that would be wrong and I cant run that fast with this injury)

      see you soon

  12. Oh how annoying. I wish you a speedy recovery. Your dog and cat are beautiful. I've decided that I need to have a dog in the new year. I have postponed the decision because it is also a large work. But also rewarding. There is something very special whit sleeping cats.

  13. I knew something must have happened when I didn't see you post. You have to try something to get out of this bad luck streak you're in. At least you got a kitten! I hope he gets better. Sometimes they are very fragile. Take good care of yourself and all your little furry friends.

  16. Oh Marisa...so sorry about your injuries! They say having pets helps our bodies heal faster. Hopefully yours will speed up your recovery (especially the little stinker that caused it--maybe he should put in some overtime comforting!). :)

  20. I hope that your life has been much less eventful over the last few days and that your injuries are healing well. After falling in the street myself a few months ago I have a lot of sympathy!

    Thanks for your birthday wishes, and yep, this Grandma thinks she's a pretty cute mini too :)

  23. Hello Marisa! What a tragedy! I have been so preoccupied with my own life that I let your accident completely slip by me! :0 I am so sorry that you have cracked you ribs and I know how painful it must be. ( Had it happen to my nephew, who said "it only hurts when you laugh")
    Get well soon, Marisa... Doctor's orders!
    Ahhh, the 70's! White suits and afros; dancing with Soul Train, and too cool for school.
    Oh yes, I remember it well! :D
