Bring on the Holiday Break

Posted in District of Columbia by melissamccart on December 20, 2006

Seven students recommendations for college, high school kids climbing the walls for vacation, four articles due in two days (luckily they’re short), an unexpected $500 car servicing bill, last-minute holiday to-do list, and today’s vet diagnosis that Charlie the puppy has severe hip dysplasia.  Time for Mom’s bowtie pasta and a couple of beers.


Onions, garlic, white wine, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, bay leaf, spicy Italian sausage, broth, crushed tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, bowties.  Not complicated, but comforting.

    That’s a very hard-to-resist look that Charlie is giving the camera. What a sweetie. Does puppy-onset severe hip dysplasia mean Charlie has surgery to look forward to in the near future?

    Possibly new hips! Apparently one side is really bad. We find out Jan 3rd. Thanks for asking! She’s so sad because she can’t run.):
