In my private life
I am still running on fumes!
My dog is still drinking a lot and …peeing a lot too, waking me up every night several times a night for…one month now!
We went back to the vet to have some blood exams and everything is good which is great yet…puzzling!
I talked to my neighbor who is teaching veterninarian science at university and who has the same breed of dog as mine. In fact, he is the owner of my dog’s half brother!
I knew that he had experienced similar problems for two months with his dog and I went asking (praying) for help.
It turns out that it was a corticoid injection he did to his dog that caused all the drinking and urinating.
As my dog also got an injection some three weeks ago, I’ll contact our veterinarian to see if it was corticoids or not…
Fingers crossed that we have the same problem as I know it shall pass!
That being said, the only notable thing that happened to me was being insulted today on bookstagram and called a “homophobic” because I recommended gay and trans romance but not sapphic books!
When I confessed that I tried to read some but that they were not my cup of tea, the person told me “I am homosexual and I am telling you that you are homophobic”.
And me explaining that I have lesbian friends, that I explained to my kids from a very young age that they could love who they wanted and it was perfectly fine as long as they were loved, cherished and happy did nothing to change her mind.
I guess that some people simply don’t want to listen and talk with you.
They just want to judge, based on very little facts, and go insulting others.
Yet God knows that I am many things but a hater!
OK enough of being a Debbie Downer! There is many great things in my life and one of them is us having a three days weekend! So yay!
Also me being finished teaching colleagues and having the last “batch” of colleagues so enthusiastics that I promise them that I would visit their office and they could ask me all the questions they want!
On the blog: May Wrap Up (click on the graphic to read the post)
May was a great reading month! I read 13 books and reread 3 books the All for the Game trilogy by Nora Sakavic!
I still loved these books as much as the first time!
I have two favorites that will make it to my top 2022 and one new series for you! Strangely, all were audiobooks!
The series is Renegades by Marissa Meyer and the standalones were The Maid by Nita Prose and Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus.
Thanks for reading!
