Okay, so Cam started acting weirder and weirder since we brought him back from the groomers. All he would do was sit in his dog bed. He wouldn't get up and he wouldn't walk. What really made us nervous was that he wasn't eating or drinking. Even though he is doing better today I called the place where we brought him to get groomed (never going there again!) and they booked us an appointment at their vet next door. The diagnosis is that Campbell has clipper burn :( The vet gave me some cortisone cream and said he should be better in a few days.

I feel so guilty! Wouldn't you if you had to see this sad sight?

Campbell's New Do

Alright, I'll be the first to admit that Campbell's cuteness factor has plummeted after his new summer haircut but I say it's worth it considering I no longer have to spend hours cutting burrs out of his fur or watching him passed out on the hardwood floor panting because he's been baking in the Texas heat.

It was actually quite shocking picking him up from the groomers. We had to check twice to make sure that it was actually our dog we were bringing home with us. In some ways I can't wait until fall when we have our furry boy back.

I looked at my watch yesturday and realized that I am getting married in a few weeks. I am nervous and excited. We have a lot of stuff to get done before we go to Canada. We have to finish buying things we are going to wear…like shoes.

We’re going to play it casual for the shoes and bring part of Austin to Canada. We’ve decided to wear flip flops. It’s an outside wedding and we are going to buy flip flops to match our outfits. I’m of course very excited because I’d much rather be comfortable than dressy. The day is already going to be a bit stressful with family and appointments.

I have to admit that it will be the first time both Melissa’s family and my dad have seen us in a loving light. We’re very respectful when we go to our family’s homes. I have to believe that it’s not only for their benefits but our own. I’ve never been a PDA type of person and that will never change. I’m not ashamed of who I am but I want everyone to be comfortable, even me. Oh well, now is the time where I’ll be able to express my feelings for Melissa and in a public forum. It’s our day and the people who care about us will be there and support our love.

The "traditional" couple gets their own dog and pony show and so will we. We deserve this and it will be a special and great day for our family. I wish everyone felt this way, but they don’t and personally it is their problem not mine. Nothing will get in the way our our day…except maybe the rain.

Stress Fest

We've been very bad bloggers and have not written in awhile. When things tend to get too stressful I tend to keep it in rather that let it out. I don't want to talk about it or write it down. I guess it just makes it too real. The latest drama has been with our passports. We have been waiting...and waiting..and waiting to get them in time for our trip. Thankfully they just lightened the restrictions on travel so it looks like Amy won't have a problem travelling.

Things are a little more complicated for me. I've been on the phone with the Canadian consulate, faxing documents to Quebec and trying to find ANYONE who will help me expedite my passport. Suffice it to say I'm still waiting.

On the baby front we are waiting as well. I made an appointment this afternoon for July 16th in order to go over my charts and start our plan of attack with the doctor. I'm very much looking forward to this visit because I'm curious about what she is going to say about my cycles. So far we have:

Cycle 1: Didn't ovulate
Cycle 2: Ovulated on CD27
Cycle 3: Currently on CD27 and no ovulation

Guess we'll see what happens on both the passport and ovulation front. I'm trying not to stress as it won't help either of these 2 things.

UPDATE: CD 28 and my monitor just went from Hign to Low. Looks like I'm not ovulating this month either :(
