Today, Jonathan and I went out to look for suits for him to wear for the prom and graduation. Man, when did I start disliking to shop so much? Anyway, we didn't have a whole lot of luck. Men's Wearhouse wanted an arm and a leg that I didn't have to donate, so we went to Burlington and found a couple of things he liked, of course nothing came in his size. I told him we'd go out to the other one in town this week sometime and see if they have what he needs. He did however; get a pair of dress shoes for the occassion and a pair of Timberlands.
When we got home we ate, and then gave the 3 puppies a bath, that's always a fun task. They did well today thought, except Tink. She plants herself down on the floor, and its like moving a wall to get her headed towards the tub. We managed to get them done and ears cleaned. I would like to one day get a professional dryer to use on them, if I can catch one at a good price. My hubby had a fire going so they curled up in front of it afterwards and went to sleep.

The Weekend is here!

I am so glad to be home for the weekend! Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I have a job, just wish I didn't need a job!
Today, Jonathan started his community service at the animal shelter, then he went and helped my dad clean their church for more community service, I think he has enough to turn in for his hours he needed for graduation. I will be so glad when all this is over. Tomorrow we have to go out and look for a suit for the prom. He hasn't gotten a date, but says he is still going to go and I think he should, it'll be something he will remember.
The dogs spent some time outside today, but not alot, it rained alittle off and on. We were going to give the puppies a bath but I decided to just have a leisure day and wait until tomorrow for bath time. Everybody's ears seems to be bothering them alittle. I think it has to do with the change in the weather sometimes. Guess they all need a good cleaning.

Weather Update

Well, the weather in Dayton sucks right now! At least to me it does, one day its nice the next its cold and rainy. My sinuses are driving me nuts, and the headaches oooohhhh the headaches.
So, I went and got my hair done the other day, it's cut just alittle different, and has a streak in it. I like it alot. A lady I work with has a nice hair style all the time so I asked if I could get the name of her stylist, and now that is who I am going to use, she is the bomb! I will post a pix as soon as I take one maybe this weekend.
My husband went for his 2nd therapy session today, he said it went well. I really am hating the fact that we are losing our insurance we had through Delphi. After 40 years of his service and now they are just cutting it off, bah! They could do better, we even lose his life insurance what kind of bull is that! Thank goodness we have insurance coverage through where I work but still.
The dogs are all doing good today. They were tired of being cooped up inside though I think. Today was a cold damp day, which means mud! Hope they don't give him too hard of a time whileI am at work tonight!

Nice Weekend

Today, it was really nice outside. I had an appt this morning, but going to keep it under wraps til I find out more about it and if anything becomes of it. If so I will let all know then. Keeping fingers and toes crossed in the meantime.
I took Chloe with me today when I went over to my parents house. It's been ages since she's seen her son Buddy, so I thought it would be nice to take her and see him. He come barrelling out of the doggie door, and she went beserk trying to get to him. We(she running and me on the end of the leash being pulled along) got to the fence, she eyes him, and then to my amazement starts growling at him like she wanted to fight! Crazy dog! Needless to say, we didn't enter the fence, I was afraid something may happen and I didn't want her to put fear in Buddy. They sniffed each other, but most all the time, she would just go still and start growling.
LB was outside alot today. He said his back is somewhat sore. I think some of it has to do with the wood splitting he's been doing. But he says no, Hmmm.....
Jonathan went on visitation with my dad to invite people to church, and then they went and cleaned their church, so he can use this for his community service for school. He is suppose to start working at the dog shelter next Saturday but only for 2 hours, wow, he's gotta hurry up and get this stuff done. May 22nd is going to be here before you know it. We got a letter from the high school(Jefferson) saying that his cap and gown are there, and the date that he is suppose to go pick them up. I also of course got a call from his teacher at school saying he is having trouble staying focused and completing the tasks that are assigned to him at Maria Joseph. I think alot of it has to do with girls on his mind, looks like he'll be doing the prom stag, and the fact that I don't think this is his favorite thing(cleaning) to be doing. He says he'd really like to get into some kind of computer class or drawing, by him being in special ed, he more or less got thrown in this career but I don't see this being something he will want to do for a job on down the line.
The dogs are having their share of allergy problems right now, at least I guess that is what it is. Everyone is waking up in the morning with gunky junk in their eyes, we have started back on antihistimines but so far, I can't tell any difference. Tinks ear has been bothering her today, so we put some cleaning solution in, later I'll try to get some meds put in as well. She is a terror when you try to do anything to her, and if she sees or senses your approach she takes off and hides underneath the kitchen table.
Ok, I guess this is enough for now, later.

I'm starting to learn how to put some pix on here, look out world, here I come! I think I have at least one pix on here that has all six of the dogs in them.
Mariah seems to be improving slowly but surely. I still kind of fill like I should take her in to have it xrayed though. She has also been rubbing her eyes alot, and I always thought she would be the one that would need them redone. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a bit longer, it could just be the season they all are waking up right now with the gunky green junk in their eyes, allergies I'm assuming. I just started them back on the antihistimine so I'm sure it'll take awhile for it to show any signs of helping them.
Jonathan got his money from his dad tonight so he can buy a ticket tomorrow for the prom! Can't believe it's almost that time already. We have to go out this weekend and look for him a suit, I want him to get a suit instead of renting a tux, he's planning to go by himself. He had asked a few girls but was turned down! Boo! Cause they either have a boyfriend or are getting back with a boyfriend.
I guess this is enough for now. The only other thing to report is the dogs all got their multi, flea/tic and heartguard drops today, no fleas in our house!

Mariah and Other Update

Yesterday, I talked to the vet. She said as far as she could tell right now, Mariah's bloodwork all came back within range! Yes! I was really hoping against the Swollen Hock thing. She is still limping and I am planning to take her back to the vet in the morning to have it xrayed, see if they can tell anything, probably just spending money and will get no definite answer but we will see.

LB said his back was pretty tight last night and that his toes were tingling, I'm assuming it was due to the fact that he said he had been out in the garage messing around for the majority of the afternoon. He starts his physical therapy next week so I am really homping it does some good.

Jonathan is trying to find a girl to take to the prom. So far it seems to be between Zoe and Sherry. We'll see if it happens or not. I hope he will at least go ahead and go even if he doesn't have a date, I think that is important part of high school and memories you carry with you.

Yesterday, LB took Mariah to the vet because she has had a swollen back leg for about 5 days or more. She doesn't act like it really hurts but she does hold it up alot and limps quite a bit with it. The vet ran some bloodwork and it should take about a week to get the results back, in the meantime you just set and worry. They seem to think that it is a possibility she has Swollen Hock Syndrome, I really hope this is wrong. I will keep everyone up to date as we find out ourselves.

Warming Weather

So, this weekend, it was extremely nice out, and the dogs loved it! They all wanted to stay outside alot especially Tink and Cojak. She seems to have inherited the love of the outdoors from her Daddy. I basically just wanted to put up a quick note on here, as I am still in the learning process of doing this and would like to eventually get on here about every day and leave an entry. Until then....stay tuned.

My son Jonathan just graduated from high school and now in the process of figuring out what to do next. We have 6 Chinese Shar Pei, and that pretty much sums me up.
