Sicky Sick

My immune system is down or something, because I am getting sick or getting eye infections or something non-stop lately. I've been home from work the past two days with the worst sore throat of my life! I can't even swallow water it hurts so bad. My doc finally called an antibiotic in for me this morning, so hopefully that will kick it soon.

I have been a super slacker when it comes to blogging lately. We've been so busy that I just haven't had the time to check in on the regular. It also feels like nothing too super exciting has been going on, so I haven't had a lot to chat about with you guys.

However, this past Saturday we did have an eventful evening. My uncles came through on their way to Dallas and dropped off two doggies for us to watch Saturday and Sunday. Addie is "friends" with them, and the three of them have spent quite a bit of time together in the past at my uncles place, so I wasn't too worried about it. Unfortunately, Saturday is when I started getting sick, so I didn't have a whole lot of energy to deal with them. Thankfully they were pretty calm.

We did have to yell at Addie and Solomon a few times to break things up....they were getting a little too friendly for our liking. For the most part they just chased each other around until they were exhausted, then would nap for awhile, then they would wake back up and do it all over again.

Addie and Sophie, however, did not have a love affair. Not even close. Poor Sophie is the most nervous little dog you've ever seen. She can't relax, and just runs around non-stop with all her nervous energy. I kept trying to get her to come over and sit with me, but the minute she would, Addie would get in her face and growl. It was so sad! And it made me and Arsen both so mad. Addie can be such a brat, and she is so territorial, and anytime I pay attention to another dog she gets mad. She seriously is spoiled to the point of it being obnoxious. We kept putting her in her crate as punishment (yes, we've heard not to do that, but nothing works with this child), and the minute we would let her out she would run right back up to Sophie like, yeah, I'm out. What now? It was awful! She finally calmed down and left her alone after a few hours, but good Lord it was annoying. I just don't know what to do with her.

So that's the most exciting thing in our lives lately. I started decorating for Halloween, but stopped about 3/4 of the way through when I started feeling too tired and sick. Now I've just got random Halloween decor laying all over our dining table waiting to be set up. Hopefully I'll find the energy to finish it up in the next couple of days and can do a post about it!


  1. Sorry you have been feeling so bad! Hopefully your energy level gets back to normal quickly for you!

  2. Hope you get to feeling better soon!!!

  3. Such cute doggies!

    I hope you feel better! When I have a cold, I pretty much just want to curl up in bed, so I understand the little energy to decorate!



Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...each and every one makes my day just a little bit brighter!
