So we are stilll in full swing puppy season and the amount of stupid people doing stupid shit still astounds me. If you have a mutt or mongrel puppy, no one in their right mind is going to pay $500+ for it. According to the AKC, a mutt is a mix of 2 recognised breeds, and a mongrel is 3+. These guys are available at any shelter or rescue. Yes, your dogs may be cute, but that is a terrible reason to breed. What kinds of genetic issues do these dogs have? Are you mixing 2 different kinds of breeds? Whenever i see an add for mixed puppiez that says "best of both breeds" i really want to scream. These people clearly don't understand genetics. You get a grab bag of traits from both parents. Putting two names together to make it sound cute does not change the fact you're trying to make a quick buck off being too lazy to fix your dog. Blargh.

In other news, we went camping! Whooo! We've got an ADHD 7yr old, ADD 5 yr old, and a 4 yr old. Oh god what did i do? So technically this isn't a real post yet. This is a post to let you know I didn't forget about you, I just ran away from civilization. I almost didn't come back, but I ran out of underpants.

I woke up this morning surprised I wasn't in my gypsy cart. I keep having this dream I live in a sheepherder's wagon in the woods. Its so quiet and peaceful, I wish I was there now. Its a million fricken degrees in here, even with 3 air conditioners. I'm meeeelting, meeeeelting.
In other news, I'm going to see a new doctor soon. Wheeee. I was referred to a psychologist when I met my last new doctor, a general practitioner. Apparently its not normal or healthy to hide in your house and be so run down you can't breathe. Huh. Medication was suggested. *Sigh*
Now we are in daylight hours, but I'm so full of decongestant that I keep wondering if I'm in the movie Pan's Labyrinth. The universe keeps shifting. I keep seeing things that aren't there, things I know in my head aren't there, but I keep thinking, Am I sure? Why again are they not real? Shadows out of the corner of my eyes keep moving. I am convinced its the cat until I remember they're both outside. I'm fairly sure I'm not stuck in a horror movie because this has been going on for awhile, but one can never be too sure. Either way I'm holed up in my cave of sick just praying for daylight. In my head. Not suicide tho, just something to cut the black on my brain.

A fresh piece of hell that is. I want to will myself into feeling better. I will let you know if that ever pans out.
I've found my dream home, I'm going to build a tiny house on wheels. Now all i have to do is come up with the money for it. And figure out where to build it, and where I'm gonna park it. Also i have to figure out how I'm going to build it with no building experience whatsoever. I'm very blessed, my wonderful friend David has offered to help me and he just graduated college with a degree in building awesomeness, so I'm super excited! Architectural Engineering is what he called it but whatever. Tiny house! My mom laughed at the idea of Moose, my 100+ lb. puppy in a tiny house. According to my calculations however, less house = more yard. More yard = more frolicking space for Mr. Moo. All he does inside is lay under my feet anyway. All i need is a job now.
