Hi everyone, how was your week? Mine was busy again--and I haven't been getting the rest I need, and after the last 6 weeks with all the craziness--me getting sick, Nells having surgery and recovering, our basement flooding and being completely tore up, and the storm, I am finally exhausted. So much so that I need to rest. I'm even taking a week off of rehab so I can get the rest I need. That will be happening next week.
Thank you all for the excellent, fun, challenging questions in my post from last week--I will do a vlog next week and answer every.single.one. I so appreciate you!
Aside from the extremely stressful situations I mentioned above, here are a few things I have been up to:
-College visits with my daughter (4 of them:)
-Spending time with my nieces and nephews
-Madelynn getting 2 more piercings
-A couple beach days (alone)
-Eating a lot of fresh summer fruit
There is one or two, extremely exciting things going on around here, one is Nells. He is doing really well!
Cream, cream, it's always about the cream for this boy!
How he loves my plastic bags!
Ya, don't ask.
My boy is officially a brut! He's a burly, husky, brut of a pooch! He needs the following asap:
-his teeth brushed
-and a bath!
Now that the full 6 weeks of Kennel time is just about up, he is good to go! He can go on walks this week!!! Isn't that wonderfully exciting!?! His 4 week post-op went really well--he just had a bit of an infection where his incision is, but they put him on some drugs and extra kennel rest so he could fully heal. Now he's doing the best I've seen in in 2 months you guys, and I could not be more thankful! Thank you all for thinking of him and for asking about him!
The other miracle that has been happening:
When we pulled into the driveway on Monday after looking at a college with Madelynn, I almost had a heart attack--I saw this nest on top of my wreath near my door. I have had this wreath hanging there year round for almost 6 years now. When I saw that nest you guys I went running into the house to tell my husband, and I started yelling, "Do you think it's real? Do you think it's legit?" Ahahahahaha after hyperventilating and a day later................wait for it......................
And Momma Robin working non-stop for her babes! I feel so blessed and lucky to be experiencing this--I don't think I will be able to handle it when they actually hatch, it will be too overwhelming for me--this kind of beauty is the kind I have trouble expressing in all it's glory and goodness. 10 more days and babies should be here!
Father's Day exploring at a beautiful park!
We are so fortunate to live in a town where beauty galore can be found within 5-10 minutes from home.
vietnam war vet--he told us stories about his tree in the front yard and how thankful he was that he didn't lose it in the storm.
Benefit for Cancer, and I got to see one of my BFF's perform, which was so so amazing.
Beach day (alone)!
Coffee break, always, always coffee break.
Spontaneous late night piercings!
Surprise Flea markets that you aren't even looking for!
This place was right down the street of our house, who knew?!
I was going bonkers!
Fresh fruits of the summer...
