Believe it or not that is the tile of the Brady Bunch episode where Cindy and her mom have their tonsils out- my first exposure as a child to this procedure. I can still picture them sitting in bed in their fabulously '60's master bedroom while Mr. Brady brought them each a bowl of chocolate ice cream. Ahhhh.
Tomorrow I go in for my own tonsilectomy. I'm sure I won't be all smiles or decked out in pig tails though. In fact, recovery is really supposed to suck for adults but I've got my chocolate ice cream in the freezer and four fuzzballs (3 commies and a corgi) to keep me company. Plus, I'm fully stocked up on reading material. I have sTori Telling, Smashed, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, and Mummy Dearest. Hopefully I can stay awake long enough to read some of them. They gave me some pretty heavy pain killers - ya, you never see Cindy take those either.

Luna was groomed yesterday. She was very excited to be pampered at Scrub-a-Pup. When I made the appointment they asked me what specifically I wanted to have done since I guess Corgi's don't normally need haircuts? I said "She needs her fluffypants trimmed." The groomer: "Her feathers?" "Yes, her fluffypants need to be trimmed, taken off, whatever, they are too long and starting to wrap around her legs like capris!"
She is now without her fluffypants and came home with a pretty St.Patrick's Day - inspried bow too boot. Tonight she will celebrate her first St. Patrick's Day with us complete with cornbeef. She's been sampling the carrots all day!

Luna's prize arrived on Thursday night! Matt and I both giggled when we opened the package and found a Reese's shapped dog toy. Luna loves food and we love chocolate (which we never give her) so it was perfect. Luna loves her new toy. We've caught her throwing it up in the air and catching it with her stubs a few times now.
I don't have any pictures of her with it, but I do have a video of her enjoying it the first time. I'll have to upload it later. I've run out of time before bed. Damn daylight savings!
