Good morning everyone. Sorry I’ve been pretty much missing in action this past week. I got a flu or something last weekend and really never felt well all week. It’s taken all the energy I have to just get the things done that needed doing. I’m feeling better now so hopefully it lasts. The flus are really making their rounds here.
I’d like those of you who pray to say a prayer for my dad. He goes in for heart surgery tomorrow to repair a flutter he has. He’ll still need another surgery after this one but they are trying this one first. Needless to say I’m pretty scared about it – this is my daddy’s heart they are going to be messing with. I’m in my forties now but I still am and will always be a daddy’s girl. I love my papa more than life itself so I’m going to be a nervous wreck tomorrow until it’s over with and I know he’s ok.
As for books, well I’m still in a reading slump. I can’t believe it’s lasted this long but it has. This week I’ll have my review for Lily of the Nile up and then I’m reading a book called Prayers and Lies by Sherri Wood Emmons next. I hope to read more than that this week but at this point, the way it’s been going for me, I’m not betting on it.
Sammy is still doing well. He’s teething big time right now so chewing and biting are high on his list off priorities. As you will see by his picture he still isn’t cut. I’m debating on how to get him groomed because he’s not well behaved at all even when I try to trim around his eyes. I haven’t worried too much about it because it was so cold out but now that it’s warming up some he’ll need a cut. I may try phoning around to some groomers and checking out what they do if puppies are still really biting. He’s starting to listen a bit better so that’s a plus but he still dislikes having his picture taken. Where Buddy loved to pose for a picture, Sammy likes to walk away. I love Sammy so much but I have to admit it’s been a hard week with missing Buddy. It really seems to come in waves but thank God for Sam because I don’t think I’d be doing half this good without him.
I’ve got a couple of pictures of Sammy this week – a few of his bath which he didn’t really mind all that much. I thought it was going to be a battle but it wasn’t. Then the other in his very standard pose – the one he takes up as soon as he hears the camera turn on and his I’m bored with you mommy pose. The others are of our piles of snow. We’re hoping we don’t get a fast thaw this year or there will be many flooded basements. Not to mention there really isn’t anywhere for more to go. We’re cutting Sam off one half of the yard simply because we need it to put the snow in. He still has a fairly big section to run around in so he’ll be ok once he gets over being ticked off.
So, what’s everyone up to today? Did you all have a good weekend? What are you reading this week – is anyone else in a slump? What do you all do when you get into a slump this bad? I have a lot of book commitments so I’m going to have to drag myself out of it somehow. Anyhow, everyone have a great week and please remember to send up a prayer for my Dad!
