Take the Good with the Bad

July 15, 2010

Yesterday actually would have been a great day — I spent a few hours at the pool with my sister, Beanie, my roommate Hannah and our friend Fletcher then had dinner at the Boulder Farmer’s Market with Joey, Beanie and a couple of her friends — if it hadn’t been for the bad news looming in the back of my mind.

While at a recent check-up it was discovered that Puppy has a heart murmur.  At an intensity of 4 out of 6.  The vet set up an appointment to do a cardioscope and as it turns out Puppy has heart disease.  This means he has a year, maybe a little more, to live.  I am devastated 😦  He’s only 6.

My family left this morning for a week in Santa Fe/Glenwood Springs so we’ll have Pup all week and I get all choked up just looking at him 😦  The poor little guy has fluid in his lungs so his breathing sounds labored and it kills me to hear him struggling.

On that note, today’s post will be short and sweet, hope you don’t mind.

Two breakfasts for the price of one:

Yesterday (taken near some flowers on campus before I realized I probably looked crazy taking pictures of VOOs in public, oops)

I actually made two batches of these so Hannah could have her first VOO experience!!  She was really interested in how I make them and the difference between all the different types of oats and I was more than happy to share my oat knowledge.  VERDICT: She thought they were really good (phew, I was nervous) and is anxious to try hot oats with PB — ahh, a girl after my own heart!

Loved the patriotic windmill on the back of this bike — so summery!  AND I saw this same bike later at the Farmer’s Market, how weird right?

Today’s VOOs:  oats, almond milk, chia seeds, peach pieces & Just Bunches

I’ve never been to the Farmer’s Market on a Wednesday — it’s open from 3-8 PM — and was surprised that it was so PACKED!  We wandered around looking for the best dinner options and stumbled across a Tandoori Wraps tent.  One look at the sign and I knew it was the place for me — organic produce and exotic sauces made from scratch, yes please!

They give you a order sheet and a pen to mark your wrap choices (P.S. you have to give them your name and we all felt like being a little silly)

  • Jo: Naan (white), Chicken, Spinach, Onions, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Olives, Bell Peppers, Hot Sauce

  • Lo: Roti (whole wheat), Veggie Fritters (not sure what these were made of but they looked/tasted like falafel and were delicious!), Spinach, Onions, Tomatoes, Olives, Bell Peppers, Curry, Masala (which I’d never had before but was so impressed by)

  • Coco (okay, she didn’t give them that name, but she totally should have — get it? Her real name is Colleen): Same as mine + cucumbers – tomatoes because they were out – masala because it’s made with cream and she doesn’t do dairy

Joey is a master burrito wrapper.  He credits Chipotle he he

I tried the iced chai but was not impressed — there was hardly any spice!

After the FM, I picked Puppy up from my parents house and cuddled up with him in bed 🙂

Talk to you all tomorrow.

    Sending good vibes to the pup. Yesterday while on a walk, my dog wouldn’t walk on her back left leg like she broke it. I ended up carrying all 42 lbs of her for over a 1/2 mile …
