    Just one first world problem after another

    First, there was the deer incident that totaled my Sentra. I got enough from the insurance claim for a decent down payment on a new Subaru Impreza Next, our dog was attacked by the neighbor’s dog. He’s doing well two weeks after surgery.

    Dog update

    After less than a week, Eddie’s bandages came off. He goes back to the Topeka vet one last time to remove the stitches. We’ll probably do that this coming Saturday. At some point in the near future, we’ll take him to his regular vet so he know what’s going on.

    Last Saturday, the family dog, Eddie, welcomed our neighbors home from their vacation. Eddie likes our neighbors; our neighbors like Eddie. Our neighbor’s dog doesn’t like Eddie.

    As I previously mentioned, I had an incident with a deer out on US 24 last week that totaled my 2013 Sentra. After having the insurance payout confirmed, it was time to get a car.

    New ride

    Last Saturday, I bought this car, a 2013 Nissan Sentra from Academy Cars in Lawrence. This was also where I previously purchased the minivan I drove for 5 years.

  • Fast forward 

    Sine I haven’t had posted a long form post in a month and a half, I’ll just get to the point. 

  • More on my foot

    Five days post-surgery, and most of the pain has subsided. Although the doctor had prescribed Oxycontin and Hydrocodone, I’ve made minimal use of them. I only took 2, maybe 3, Oxy out of the 20 pills dispensed to me, and, even though I received two scripts for the Hydrocodone (one at the Urgent Care, the…
