Staying on track, but feeling wobbly

The blog's going ok, and I'm almost done with my "health checklist" (doctor visit, check; dentist, partial check; eye doctor, check). I've been avoiding taking my car to the dealership to get it looked over so that my warranty doesn't get voided, but I think I'm going to need to arrange to do that next month - I'm so not looking forward to that. I'm nearly done with my taxes. Maybe. I haven't decided yet - it's turned out to be potentially more complicated than I expected.

So, I'm mostly on top of things. Unfortunately, the universe may be throwing me a bit of a curveball again. One of my little rat boys may need to visit the vet - he's got a little lump on his tail. I'm not sure how long he's had the lump and it doesn't seem to be bothering him, so, for now, I'm just going to keep an eye on it. It reminds me a bit of the lump my other boy had on his belly before my big move. That lump turned out to be an abscess and basically took care of itself within a week or two. I'm hoping things will go the same with this lump. I hate it when my boys have strange health issues that I know little to nothing about. Actually, I hate it when my boys have any health issues at all. They're much too cute to get sick or hurt.


  1. Oh no!! I hope your little rat boy is okay!!

  2. Well, he's eating and drinking like usual, he doesn't act like he's in pain, and he has no problems cuddling with me or his brother. If any of that changes, or the lump gets bigger or funny colored, then it's definitely time for the vet. I tend to be an over-protective mommy, so hopefully I'm worrying over nothing again.
