OK... Holy Smokes!!! So, you're saying I can just let it all hang out??? You're saying I can "Rip a new one?" You're saying I can "Lay the wood?" Are you seriously telling me The Triumph Trophy has been passed over to Slu's World and it allows one to get it all off of your chest? To VENT???
Well, the answers, in order, are: Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes!!! Are you asking yourself, "What in the Heck is a Triumph Trophy???" Ha... I can tell you that it was created by Bloggers Karen @ Baking In A Tornado... and Kristy @ Black Sheep Mom... It represents making it through the everyday "things" that might otherwise break us down. And... It allows the Recipient to Vent a little. Now, who can relate to that??? Probably all of us???
Around two weeks ago, my friend Michele, over @ Follow Me Home..., nominated Slu's World for this Trophy. She is the proud Recipient of the Trophy too. I hope you will bounce right on over and check out her amazing Blog. Thanks bunches for the "pass" Michele. I absolutely accept, although, I am all about the Smile, all about Happy Friday, and about having a good time. So, we'll see what comes from this. In accepting the "Double T," one must do the following:
1... Display the Trophy in your post: See Above.
2... Write a short piece that starts with this: "I didn't
So, "I didn't

OK... Recently, Toby has been sick. In addition to being diagnosed a few weeks ago with a Thyroid condition (Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!), he was sick over the weekend due to, I believe, human food scraps dropped on the floor by Munchkin. She spent the weekend with us. Toby just cannot eat human food, albeit with one exception, and that would be sliced cheese.
Toby is 9 years old now. Prior to the Thyroid condition, I used to feed Toby just once a day, in the evenings, followed by a treat. Every night before bed time, Toby and I would visit "poop-ville" and he would take care of his business. Life was good!!! However, since being diagnosed, he now has to take a pill TWICE a day for the rest of his life!!! But he can't just take the pill as is. And he was throwing up after each meal when he ate the pill with his food. So, the Vet advised us to feed him his food, wait 10 minutes, and then break the pill in half, and "hide" each half of the pill in a fold-over of cheese. Are you with me here??? For the Rest of His Life, I have to feed him FOUR times a day: An early day meal, 10 minutes later he gets pills in a cheese blanket, an early evening meal, and 10 minutes later, he gets pills in a cheese blanket with a treat. You absolutely have to understand that visits to "poop-ville" are now off the charts!!! The whole "system" has been turned upside down. And recently, and with Munchkin's crumbs help, "poop-ville" is suddenly an INDOOR location... People, can you feel me here??? I have not even begun to VENT just yet!!! Here we go...
|Yep... Eating yet again!!! Grrrrrrrrrrr...|
In the past couple of weeks, there have been a few items on my "list" that I suppose I could have vented about... Rising Health Insurance rates that have gone up yet again, a trip to the dreaded Dentist on Wednesday, and another reminder of why Texting and Driving is so dangerous (See Week 29... On My "Soap Box" for my concerns). But in the end, the "Tobester" won out. For all my recent aggravation though, you gotta love the "little guy."
Back to my friend Michele... Her Triumph Trophy "Vent" Post can be found here... It is an amazing, heartfelt piece and I truly hope you'll take 5 minutes and click on the Link for a good read.
