To say this past month was a wee bit crazy would be an overwhelmingly huge understatement!
After nursing the new puppy back to life not once, but twice (which by the way - I never followed up to say he was vomiting from a severe allergic reaction to the medication the doctor gave him for parasites), and then dealing with a brief stint of a UTI with the pup...we locked him in the kitchen for two straight days while it worked through his system. I didn't take him to the vet that time because, well - the last time I did it didn't seem to help much and I wasn't about to put anything else in his system, he was going to have to ride this one out. He did. For now, I think I have a healthy puppy. I've grown very attached to him, and he to me. We've had a crazy first month getting to know each other. I think he may just be ready to continue with his vaccinations and move on to a normal puppy life.
So, the dog finally became healthy just in time for soccer camp week.
Last week we spent the evenings at the soccer field while during the day I worked on several intense client transactions. It was exhausting. But, we had a healthy pup and happy kids and I know that is what matters most.
Then last Saturday we headed to my MIL's house in Omaha to help her recover from a surgery she had last week. The hubby and kids went up there for the weekend and came back Monday and I stayed until yesterday to continue to help my MIL with her recovery. Which, BTW she is doing great and is recovering splendidly!
Today I wanted to spend some time with the kids. I've been missing them with the craziness of the past few weeks. So, we went to see one last movie before school starts with my mom and my grandma. We had a great time. And then tonight we headed out to have some fun family time. We went to T-Rex Cafe and enjoyed ourselves.
I'm looking forward to next week. School starts Wednesday and I'm looking forward to a stern schedule and some break time from sibling spats. Ahhh. Just thinking about it makes my shoulders relax. Normalcy, it think it's on its way!
