It was a week that started out so well, but took a bit of a detour. With Carl gone it became very busy and hectic. It didn't help that I got a ticket on Wednesday for making a turn in an 'authorized vehicle only' place on the highway. Of course I have my reason for why I was turning around that comes complete with the excuses that I didn't see the sign at first and with another car behind me doing the same thing, I had no choice but to make the turn. The police officer, who I thought was arrogant and indifferent, didn't care about any of it. The maximum fine for this horrible crime that I have committed is $250. I can only hope for leniency.
Rudi continues to do 'just okay.' I took her with me to the farm stand this morning. She tries to accompany us on our daily walks, but because she wears out easily, she'll stop along the way and lay down. I usually go back and sit with her until she has the energy to walk back to the house. On some days she'll have no appetite whatsoever, other days she'll eat most of her meal. For the next mealtime I try to make the exact same thing for her hoping she'll eat again, but she'll refuse it. I can only keep trying.
