Why Didn't I Just Become a Vet Tech?

I believe I am the vet's worst nightmare.

I showed up at their office at 8am to wait so I could get reglan for the kittens with the runs, and another bag of lactated Ringer's. In another life, I should have been a vet tech.

The plan for now is to keep hydrating Forrest and squeezing milk into her mouth so that she swallows some of it, I hope enough to keep her going. The other 3 will continue on the probiotic and reglan, and I'll give them fluids if they show signs of needing it.

Meanwhile, I also picked up Angel Food boxes, sent the kids with Sweetie to Zippity Zoo Day, and have to go get in the shell nuts for the crazy squirrel so her teeth don't overgrow.

Are we having fun yet?

In honor of Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day:

I Gave Her the Ring and She Gave Me the Finger
I Liked You Better Before I Knew You So Well
I Want a Beer as Cold as My Ex-Wife's Heart
I'm Just a Bug On The Windshield Of Life
Rednecks, White Socks, and Blue Ribbon Beer
Thanks to the Cathouse, I'm In The Doghouse With You
She Got The Gold Mine, I Got The Shaft
I Don't Know Whether To Kill Myself or Go Bowling

I Sold A Car To A Guy Who Stole My Girl, But It Don't Run So We're Even
Mama Get A Hammer (There's A Fly On Daddy's Head)
If The Phone Don't Ring, You'll Know It's Me

How Can I Miss You If You Won't Go Away
I Keep Forgettin' I Forgot About You

I Still Miss You Baby, But My Aim's Gettin' Better

I Wouldn't Take Her To A Dog Fight, Cause I'm Afraid She'd Win
I'm So Miserable Without You; It's Like Having You Here
I've Got Tears In My Ears From Lying On My Back Cryin' Over You

If I Had Shot You When I Wanted To, I'd Be Out By Now

My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink, And I Don't Love You

My Wife Ran Off With My Best Friend and I Sure Do Miss Him

Please Bypass My Heart
You Done Tore Out My Heart and Stomped That Sucker Flat

You're the Reason Our Kids Are So Ugly

She's Looking Better After Every Beer

I Ain't Never Gone To Bed With An Ugly Woman, But I Sure Woke Up With a Few
