Good News:

  • The dogs are mostly okay but they did need medicine so it's good I took them in.
  • Apparently, if your IVF cycle is cancelled before you get a chance to turn around twice--or before transfer--you get a refund. A very pleasant surprise. We're thinking of using the money to buy lottery tickets because I really think it's about time we are on the right side of the very small probability.
  • TOIAW is taking me out to dinner so I don't have to cook.
Could Be Better News:

  • We need a tow hitch installed on our vehicle which seems simple and straightforward, right? For most people it is but we own one of the two models that every tow hitch installation place in the metro area refuses to wire (see my second point above). The dealership could do it and it would only cost us $1500. If we did that and used the your-eggs-may-be-disappointing-but-at-least-they-disappoint-early-enough-for-a-refund money we would have $15 left for lottery tickets. What do you think?

P.S. Just to clarify, I have no objection to Chinese medicine...it's just that acupuncture for dogs seems pretentious. In the vets' office there is a chart of a dog's energy meridians; that's just too much. The herbs for dogs, however, are awesome.
