Busy, Busy, Busy!


Yesterday was a CRAZY day! Since Brett has been away, I invited a friend to come spend the night... It was just like the sleep overs I had when I was a kid and we stayed up until the wee hours of the morning. So, I woke up extremely tired! Romeo had a terrible cough which meant yet another trip to the vet. At least this one is a little closer than the Veterinary Hospital that I have been taking Teena to! They prescribed something for both worms AND kennel cough as they are not quite sure which it is. Teena also has to take the deworming meds as they have been together. I need to check and see whether she has had a shot to protect her from the kennel cough. If not, then she will probably need an antibiotic too. Then we went over to pick up a photo that my friend had at the framing and matting shop. On the way home Jessi started complaining about her arm. I took a look at it and it was terribly red and swollen and hot to the touch. UGH! I called the Dr. and she said give her some Benadryl and some Advil and if it didn't improve to call for an appointment. Jessi complained more and more through the night so I called the on-call Dr who said it was most definitely infected and she should be seen immediately. So... we ended up in emergency. Double UGH!!! She has cellulitis (sp?) for the 3rd time in less than 2 years!! This time due to a bug bite. But thankfully we caught it quick enough and already the swelling has gone down considerably and she is feeling much better. Good enough even to go to gymnastics today. Course she would have gone even in pain as she loves it so much. So... that wrapped up my crazy day. Actually... since Brett's been gone it's been like that most days! I've been to the vets and back numerous times these past two weeks! And have just been on the go to here and there and everywhere! I'm not sleeping well either so I am one tired mama!! :)

Tonight was the kick-off for Williamson's Apple Blossom Festival. I'll leave you with some pictures from the kiddie parade...

Your Apple Blossom pics are way better than the ones I saw online! Maybe they'll buy some of your photos and throw those old ones away!

I took a look - you are right! Wow - they were HORRIBLE! Any ideas who I would go to???

Contact any one of the commitee members. Check the website. (Cindy Smith works with Bethany.) Or how about Wilma Young? She does the advertising?

Oh, you poor baby! Crazy wk is an understatment. Sick animals, sick kiddo, tired, no significant other to comfort you. Prayers for your health and indurance. Great photos.

Well... I wrote to Wilma Young at the Sun Record. It was a bit scarey... and I wasn't sure how to do it! But I figured the worst case scenario is that they don't use 'em and maybe think I'm whacko!! LOL. Course we all know that to be true anyhow...

Where'd your hubby go, business trip? I hate it when Dave is gone, I never sleep as good. Luckily he only has to go overnight 1 night every 6 mos. (Albany)

Rachel... Yup. Hubby just started a new job and so they sent him to TX for training.
