My sweet cookie of a dog has been sick for the past few days - since Thursday. It's just about all I can think about. We finally got to the vet yesterday (of course she got sick over the weekend - a holiday one at that), and I'm hoping her tummy issues are resolved soon. We're boarding her at the kennel starting Friday for our trip to Pittsburgh, and I know I'll be worried if she's not 100 percent when we leave.
Because of all this excitement, I haven't been focusing my energy on preparing for this trip. I've got lots of cleaning and packing ahead before we go. I haven't been to the gym in almost two weeks. Ick.
Yesterday I took a media day tour of the San Jacinto, a guided missile cruiser, at the naval station. It was pretty awesome - but a wee bit earlier in the day than I'm used to (I had to be at the naval station at 6:30 a.m.!). Pics are here. The people on the ship were really, really nice and I learned a lot. We were supposed to cruise to a weapons facility, where we'd disembark and take a drive back to Norfolk. But software problems meant we weren't able to sail. Darn!
