Mother's Day

Happy Belated Mother's Day to all of you!

Our weekend was a whirlwind of fun with shopping with "first" toothfairy money at the dollar store; a Tball game where the Palentologist hit a home run and Twinkletoes remembered to run to first base after she got a hit; a funeral; a trip to the Amish store (twice) for a pig roast (they ran out both times before we got there) and visiting relatives yesterday for Mother's Day. It was nice to take a nap last night while the kids watched Shrek with Daddy! Thanks!!!

A quick update on Guinness: the toenail that was sticking out sideways when we took him to the Vet was not a toenail at all but, was, in fact, his BONE! Grody! So, he's recuperating nicely and will make a return visit to his favorite doctor tomorrow afternoon with the Nanny Extraordinnaire to change his bandages and see how he's healing. He is still typical puppy though. You can't even tell there is anything wrong with him other than he has the "halo" on (again) and has his front right paw wrapped in an acebandage. We have to put a "boot" on him each time he goes outside so that he doesn't get the bandage wet or dirty. The boot is actually pretty funny - its an empty IV bag with a few holes cut into the top and a long piece of wrapping gauze through the holes, drawstring-style, so that we can tie it onto him. Keep in mind that this "boot" does not keep him from jumping on the fence (how we think he hurt himself the first time) nor does it keep him from flying off the patio wall down onto the lawn back to the other side of fence to bark at the neighbors and their dogs and teenagers!

Only 11 days until we leave for Jamaica! At the rate we're going to need the trip more than ever (good thing we prepaid for the trip otherwise we'd probably have to stay home) -- the Nanny Extraordinnarie has her hands full today: the alarm repair guy coming today (window is 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. ), washer repair guy is coming back to finally fix the washing machine (window is 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.) and the Palentologist has to get on and off the bus at our house this afternoon instead of his kindergarten enrichment class. At least the sun is shining and the coffee is good ... (Speaking of coffee: we just received word that the coffee machine is malfunctioning at work. I get to call yet another repair guy!)

Happy Monday!
