Goin' Swimmin' and Phoenix's health

So I'm getting ready to take the kids swimming and I called the pool to see how much it's going to cost me.  Now mind you, the kids are 2 and 10 months and then there's me.  The lady who answered the phone told me it was $7 a person.  I asked well what about kids, still $7.  I asked if there was an age minimum or anything and they said yes, if the children are less than 5 months old you don't have to pay.  So now, I'm stuck paying $21 to take my babies swimming.  How ridiculous!

I had to take my Phoenix to the vet again yesterday.  It turns out she does have mites (like I thought in the first place) it only takes 2 visits to discover this!  So now she has to take vitamin E for the rest of her life, this liquid stuff for like 3-6 months, an antibiotic for 14 days and a special shampoo to be washed with 3 times a week until the skin irritation goes away.  And apparently it's because she has a low immune system!  


  1. Hey hey! So I read some yer responses to Val's blog, are ya gonna start contributin' yer own stories? I can't wait to read 'em, this bloggin' stuff is cah-razy!

    And the pool totally blindsided ya with that charge. Less than 5 months? What, ya gonna make a re-enactment of the Nirvana "Nevermind" album cover? Jeez. Scrooges all 'round!

  2. Eventually I probably will. I am a store manager so I try to keep it as PC as possible. All I need is my RVP or RD reading this LOL. I do have tons!
