I had to take Howard to the vet today. I think his thyroid meds are off. He is down to 141 pounds and he is shedding really really bad. They are going to call me tomorrow with the blood work results. Lets all cross our fingers that it is just his thyroid. You know how the dog likes to spend all our money on vet bills.
Well, it's a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l day today! The humidity is gone and it's only going to be 86 degrees. aaaaaah. Heaven.

While we are on the subject of craziness...let me just give you a peek into a day in the life of Ryan. Last night I made him eat a banana after dinner because the kid is a challenge in the food department. He went outside while he was eating it. Molly: MOM! Ryan just threw the banana peel over the fence and I think it landed in the neighbors yard!!! ME: RYYYYYYAAAAAANNNNN! (LOL can you just hear the craziness?) Ryan: (all sweetness and innocence) Yeah Mom? Me: (hyperventilating LOL) Did you just lose your mind and throw trash over the fence? Ryan: total blank look. Me: (through gritted teeth) Get outside and get the trash and bring it into this house and throw it away PROPERLY!!!! and God help you if the neighbors saw that hillbilly yahoo maneuver! I'm telling you friends...the boy should have come with a warning label. LOL.Right now Kellie is being a total angel - don't let her fool you. She's probably cookin' up somethin'.Don't you just love when they take photos of themselves and you find them on the computer? I know I do.

Likes living on the edge. It's a daily adventure.
And this one....Is flying to Maine next week with Molly's boyfriend and two other friends for a week for their senior trip. It will be just the 4 of them and he still hasn't given us all of the details of the trip except to say that they are going White Water Rafting!!! God help us.
And this one...
Wants to know if she can go to Maine too since they are her friends too. To Maine. With her boyfriend. For a week. Hmm, let me just think about this for a second...Molly age 17, boyfriend age 18, Molly with her cute little figure in a bikini, boyfriend being a guy ... yeah, I'm pretty sure that's a... NO! Molly: but Jason will be there! Yes...Yes, he will. Hmmm, lets see...how should I put this?...Hell no! Are you insane?! Absolutely Not.Going.To.Happen! She said "I didn't think you would say yes." Smart girl.

Kellie has been in art camp all this week (and next week) and we have been pretty busy around here so this fabric chopping is all I have to show for my week. I hope you have a nice weekend. See you Monday.

It's fun to work in this journal. It's just play - I don't really think about it when I'm gluing stuff down. Most of this was finished before vacation with the intention of working on them in the evening. I packed a lot of pens, paints, pastels etc and never did work on any of it - which is a good thing because that means we were having too much fun - but now that I'm back home I am anxious to get to the paints and pens and have a little fun with it.

My mother called me last night and told me that she was very sick over the weekend. She had a temperature of 102 all weekend and couldn't eat. She finally went to the doctor on Monday morning and they sent her to the emergency room where they were running tests. They told her she would have to be admitted and she said "oh. I can't do that. I'm taking care of my daughters pets while she is on vacation." LOL! She said the doctor looked at her like she had three heads and told her she didn't have a choice. Then about 2 hours later they figured out what was wrong (an infection) gave her antibiotics and sent her home. She stopped at my house to feed the pest on.the.way.home! Mark said "good thing she had her priorities in order." LOL Can you believe that? I was like Mom, we could have called Molly's boyfriend to take care of the pets till we could get home. That is so like her to worry about something stupid like the pets while in the hospital. She said she was so afraid that she was going to have to call me while I was away. Yeah. Don't bug me with your problems lady - I'm on the beach. gaaah, that woman. Anyway, she's getting better now.
Howard is very glad to be reunited with his couch and has assumed his usual position with his favorite toy. Useless horse dog.
Off to do piles and piles of laundry. Have a great day!

Miss Kitty is angry with me. She doesn't like to be left.
Poor cross-eyed kitty.
