No matter how much fun I have on my two day holiday shopping trip with “the girls”, and trust me, we had A LOT of fun – it’s always good to be back in our comfy home with the Dadz and the crew. Sleeping in my own bed Saturday night then snuggling with Luke on the couch Sunday morning is definitely not overrated.
I did pretty well at taking a break this time – I started to take some photos of fun pet stuff I saw on our trip for the blog, but after these two seen below I actually mostly forgot all about it for the rest of my trip. I needed a little break and did better than I thought I would at taking one!
The crew stayed in the Dadz’ capable hands, and I was so thrilled when I got home to find out that Cricket had been outside playing ball quite a bit over the long weekend! I had watched her playing on Thanksgiving morning while preparing food to take to my brother’s, and then again on Sunday morning, when Dadz also took some photos for us. She was no worse for wear after playing either!
It’s going to take me at least all week to get caught up on things now. My kitchen counter is covered with shopping bags, and the hallway is lined with boxes of Christmas decorations to be put up. I’ll be catching up with my online friends slowly over the next few days while working my way through the chaos around the house.
We have a few exciting things coming up on the blog over the next few weeks: our monthly Pet Treater review (wow, was there some great stuff this month!), our “favorite things” post – which is our simplified version of a gift guide, plus two other reviews of some new products and hopefully a giveaway to go with at least one. We’ll also have our positive pet training blog hop post with our report on Luke’s progress with crate training. I hope to put together health reports on both Cricket’s arthritis and Samantha’s hypertension; those will be more informative posts to hopefully help other families dealing with these conditions in their own pets.
Wow, December is going to be a busy month – but there’s nothing new about that, is there? What is your month looking like – is it full of holiday plans, or just the same old crazy busy routines?
