Goodness it has been a busy week or so.
It seems it has been non stop and I am having to snatch bits and pieces of time to come here and keep up...so be a tad patient as I get used to life on the busy side.
But then I don't think I even have to ask do I?....that is why I love you so!
So....Saturday and Sunday I spent the day with two sweet little ones. My friend Amy had duty...and since her husband is off being trained before he is deployed....she needed a grandma in training to watch her kids.
So bright and early...it was beautiful with the sun coming up over the still snow covered mountains....I made my way to her house. The kids and I did great...we always do....but the new dog...lets just say that I was not a welcome house guest. Poor thing...he had had a rough life till Amy got him a few weeks ago. Hmmm..I do hope that I did not bring back unpleasant memories. :)
Day two was much better. Amy's little girl loves to put the leash on the dog and he will follow her around for hours. So since he refused to follow me outside the first day to go to the bathroom...the second day we improvised. Can I just say that I feared an explosion the first day.....9 hours is a long time to go without going.
The next day I let little bit put the dog on the leash...and then very slowly I approached her and picked her up.
Now like a slow moving train we made our way out the back door into the yard...where little bit then put macho/previously emotionally hurt dog....on zip line. And wala! we had water works!
Who knew taking a dog out to the potty could require such imaginative thinking?
After that first time...we had the system down pat.....and I guess after the relief we offered...he decided he liked me after all. I was glad to finally part of the family.....I don't think I have ever had a dog dislike me before. It was quite a relief when he finally walked over...without the growl.... to let me rub his ears. :)
And then Monday I raced in to register for my CNA class. All of that went well and the color of my scrubs will go lovely with my eyes! That is was a pleasant surprise...who wants to be stuck wearing pepto pink?
And get this...I have to have proof that I have had my MMR shots.
And guess what....I have no clue where I would find that info.....so....I get to get them again! Joy! Joy!
I wouldn't think this would be good for a body...but if the nurse says it is a must do..it must be o.k.
I'll be taking care of that lovely task this week. :(
After that bit of good news it was time to run home because we were moving.
That's right.....moving a full 7 campsites to the right. Can I just say that it was the easiest move I have made?
It was. We moved down to the end by a family that has children Julias age. We had fun barbecuing with them last night...I have a huge grill and so when Beth looked out her window and saw what I was doing...she asked if her meat could join ours. It was kind of fun and we all love our new home-site. It is closer to the fast moving part of the river....so we have great sounds for sleeping.
Why tell you about our move?
Just thought you might need to know we have moved
in case you decided to come for a visit in your home on wheels.
Goodness..how fun would that be! :)
At this moment Beth and her hubby (our new neighbors just in case your brain is working like mine lately) are at the hospital getting ready to welcome another life into the world. So this grandma in training is once again child sitting. We are packing this camper wall to wall tonight with sleepers. Well...not literally....but if someone else shows up they will have to take the floor. Aren't I a lovely hostess. :)
I guess that is about it...I shall let you know if there is an adverse reaction to the shots.
I hope I won't end up being a case study.
Love ya'll dearly...I'll be back soon with the next saga from our home on wheels.
