It’s been a busy few days, and I’ll be playing catch-up for the next few! We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving dinner, and then I had two days of shopping fun with the girls. It was good to get home Saturday night though and Sunday was spent starting to catch up on everything and get organized for the week.
I wanted to get around to everyone’s sites and say Happy Thanksgiving , but when we got home from Thanksgiving dinner we found out the snow storms in our state had caused internet problems, and even though we were lucky not to lose power, our internet was out. Thank goodness my post for Friday was already written so I could publish it from my phone! The internet never did come back on until Saturday morning.
On top of that, when the dogs came outside when we got home from dinner Thursday, they all went romping through the snow, and then Luke came back to me holding one of his rear legs up in the air. He tried to go up the stairs and couldn’t, and then yelped once. I had him just sit and be quiet for a minute and next thing I knew he went up the stairs and seemed fine. However, in the middle of the night he was up more than once moving around and holding the leg up again. He’s been doing that off and on ever since. So we’re trying to keep him quiet – not easy with a one year old pup (and a sister who is just dying to play fetch in the snow every day), and we may end up at the vet’s this week. I’m trying really hard not to worry too much. When he plays and runs he does it hard and at 110% so I’m surprised he hasn’t hurt himself before now.
I had so much fun shopping with the girls, but we’re usually pretty tired by the time we sit down for dinner on Saturday early evening before heading home. I wonder, while I was out walking miles and shopping hard for everyone, is this all that was going on at home?
Just kidding, I know my hubby was busy with projects of his own, and I always appreciate that he doesn’t mind me going away while he stays home and cares for the household. I really just wanted to show some pictures of our new porch…it’s not quite finished yet, and I’ll share more once we have the new furniture out there.
