Last night, CC came by to wear her Kitty Towel Birthday Present and watch Bug and Sweet G while M and I went to Bladerunner at the Cinerama. Huge Screen. A night out before M starts his new job. Perfect!I love movies and I respect the institution of a dark theater and a good flick. Last night, in the 25 minutes preceeding Bladerunner's start time of 7:30, the following happened: CC came, (phone rang) an electrician also came (Bug tantrum) over to the door to finish off work upstairs, Sweet G had to (phone rang) nurse and get her jammies on and go to sleep, workmen checked in regarding all of their super work outside, dinner (phone rang) of chicken, broccoli and fougasse on the table along with dishes and beverages, a mild alarm about missing (phone rang) plants that were just planted (Bug tantrum) the night before, jammies and epi-pen (phone rang) and hydroxizine out for Bug, eat, found glasses, drove to cinema, found parking, ran to cinema, and entered theater during the opening scene.

Alaska was not a hard trip on her because she got to hang with people one way or another...on a pouch bundled up or in Zizi's lap nakey nakey and all..

If you had paid me before we left for our trip to Alaska, I could have zero'd out your carbon emission footprint by harnessing the green (and sometimes smelly, sticky, slimy, snotty) energy that Bug exuded 24/7. I have friends that are able to pick out ONE picture from a trip and post it, but there is just too much to tell and show after Alaska. So, here's Bug with UDP and Zizi. Maps were a huge part of Bug's Alaska story and just about any folded paper became a map and Bug started to "co-pilot" whenever someone asked his/her way.Below is Bug dressed in Baby G's hat and a Vietnamese headress of Zizi's. He's apparently dressed "for work with UDP." I never knew this was the preferred dress of dentists. Perhaps, its just an Alaska thing. Perhaps, I've let my experience in the lower 48 cloud my judgement of what is professional. Viva Alaska!

Whoever said, "Don't mess with Texas," never went to Alaska. The mountains and mudflats make our towns and roads seem silly. The only thing more overwhelming than those mountains is how much love I feel for my family.

I have tried to be between Bug and food for years and I'm learning that I can't do it alone. It is impossible to do it alone. I am thankful for the ER. Thankful for my family and my friends that care enough to be vegan around us all the time, especially when we don't have to ask them to put their kids milk away - just for the short time we visit, or explain again how life threatening his allergies are. It matters when you are vegan around us. We get to have as many moments like the ones above as we want.
