|You can tell I've really missed tofu on potato island!|
I have no respect for our healthcare system here, and I feel the same about veterinarians. Like everything else, I'm sure there are exceptions to this rule, I'm only talking based on my experiences with vets. I'm scared they're dilly dallying around, and I won't have money to afford to treat her when they finally find out what is wrong. The annoying vet yesterday said the vet today will take a test to determine for sure whether diabetes is an issue. From what I read on Vet MD. diabetes can be a cause of fatty liver disease. Yes, I am paying a vet but googling Vet MD. So, today I am going to try to channel my inner drunk and combine her with sober me, and hopefully that will give me the ability to be assertive, and express my concerns and not be silenced with defensiveness or a bunch of mumbo jumbo that I don't even understand. Wish me luck.
The above picture is a little haul from this awesome store called The Central Market. They have the coolest produce section, and homemade tofu, and all kinds of Asian noodles and sauces an such. It's kind of Heaven. Both the Vet and Central Market are on a street in Seattle called Aurora Ave. Aurora is a sketchy street to say the least, and it's where prostitutes and their potential suitors (Johns?) meet up. I used to live off of Aurora, and I had to walk on Aurora to get to and from the bus. Anyway, cars would seriously slow down when they drove by, I guess in case I wanted to jump in and service them. I swear on everything I know and love. It kind of traumatized me to be honest. One time I was waiting for a bus after getting groceries, and some woman also had grocery bags at the bus stop. Several cars drove by and slowed down. I remember she said to me, I think they think we're hookers! And I agreed. She was very indignant, and said to me"this is the worst. How could men think we're hooking, no offense but we look terrible!" Ha ha. She was adorable. I explained that I really don't think it matters, we are women, so we must want to sell our bodies to these awesome men. (Shudder)
Anyway, I say ALL of that to say I don't go to The Central Market because of the whole gross out factor, so yesterday I went and binge bought tofu I guess to soothe my feelings.
I did not eat any tofu though. That is for today. I made a huge bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy, the ultimate comfort food. Yesterday was the final day of potato island! I made it ten days. Woot woot.
Here's a picture of my beautiful Animal. I can't wait till she's this bright eyed again.
