I woke up this morning to the sound of Reggie hitting the deck boards. His legs were all over the place, his head was shaking, his eyes were twitching. A flurry of movement later and before I knew it, Dad had called Kristen and Valerie home and Reggie was being hoisted by Dad into the van.
All I could do was cry. (I've been doing that a lot this week, haven't I?)
Kristen and Valerie came home and we drove off to meet Mom and Dad at the animal hospital with Reggie.
We got there and got Reggie's diagnoses.
All this time I was seriously thinking we wouldn't have Reggie greeting us Christmas morning. Hence the sobbing.
Turns out what he has isn't nearly as scary as it look, and it's treatable.
About three medications later Reggie seems to be perfectly normal. Thank you God!
You know--when I was thinking Reggie was a goner--I realized why exactly I had gotten that darn cold. If I hadn't gotten sick, then I would've been gone Saturday morning, wouldn't have charged by cell phone, I would've been at a strange place, and missed Reggie's passing. (Luckily that last part didn't happen)
For the past several weeks my sister Kristen and I have been planning our cookie exchange. It starts at 7.3o tonight and we're all wearing are pretty cocktail dresses.
Well, everyone except me. Because I'm not going.
Yes, the co-host of this shin-dig is out sick. ::cough cough::
I really have no idea how I picked this up so quickly. I come in contact with a lot of people on Tuesday, but Wednesday I had absolutely no symptoms. Thursday however I woke up with the worst sore throat ever.
So here I sit, Netflix just shorted out--again. I'm achy, coughing every few seconds, I still have a sore throat, and sniffles. It's now 4.27, and I should've been getting ready.
I think quiche is best served cold, so when I make at night, I always wait until morning to have it for breakfast. It can be served as breakfast, brunch, lunch or supper easily--quiche is so adaptable!
one pie crust (I make my own, but store-bought works like a charm)
one cup of either milk, half and half, or heavy whipping cream. (I always use half and half. recently though, I used heavy whipping cream and it was the best)
pinch of salt
half a cup of finely chopped onion
a cup of a cheese of your choice
and mix-ins like::
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Prepare crust by placing it in a nine inch pie pan.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the cream or milk. Add in the salt and a dash of pepper.
Dump in all of your mix ins. Stir thoroughly.
Put the filling in the unbaked crust and place in oven for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick poked into the
