so close...

You know that sense of accomplishment you get from finishing about 9 loads of laundry.  I love that feeling!  Only this time just as the dryer was shutting down with the last load, I heard it.  That noise that you hate to hear.  Someone is the house is vomiting.  YUCK!

Unfortunately, we had one fall to the 24 hour bug.  But, fortunately he is feeling better!  See there's always a bright side {smile}.

Poor kid had to sleep with his bucket.

Off to do more laundry.

Happy Monday!!

poor little Snickerdoodle...

It amazes me how quickly a pet becomes a member of the family you never knew you were missing until you have them.  Our little Snickerdoodle has completely filled our hearts.  He is so loving, mischievous and gives the best greetings ever when we get home.  He has chewed so many Webkinz that I've lost count and flip flops seem to be his shoe of choice.

But our poor little guy hasn't been feeling the best over the last month.  Today for the third time in a month he has dislocated his patella.  Ironic that I'm a X-ray tech and see this often in people,  but I never thought I'd have to deal with it in our puppy.  So soon we'll have to make a decision on what we want to do with his knee.  Several thousand of dollars for a knee surgery isn't exactly what I had in mind.  I hope Dave Ramsey understands if we have to change our plan a little bit.

I just pray that we get this poor little guy back to feeling better soon.

Why is it that we spray and try so hard to get rid of weeds?  I know they aren't all beautiful, but you can't deny the dandelion!  The really are an amazing little weed.  At my house I actually consider them a flower, although my husband would definitely disagree.  I've been telling him this year we can't treat the yard because of having the puppy.  In secret it's because I love the dandelions {smile}.

Now I just need to get a macro lens to really be able to capture these beauties.

Happy Wednesday!!

It's that time of year when peeps become the staple of most of my daily meals.  I find they are one of those things you either love or hate, there's no in between.  I my friends LOVE them. 

Over the weekend the kids wanted to make s'mores.  Although, it's not warm enough to make them outside we improvised and used the microwave and replaced our normal marshmallows. 

They were delicious!  Graham crackers, chocolate {Hershey's, of course}& peeps.  So give it a try next week when you have peeps up to your ears and don't know what to do with them all.

Happy Monday!!
