Rose,, I have a spot like that on my cheek right now; I must have gnawed it in my sleep or something. I hate foxtails! A seed in my puppy Mr. Worf's lung is what killed him at only 8 years of age. He was my dog heart and soul and not a day goes by where I don't miss him. I'm so glad you found the irritants and can help your precious animals with it. The cysts that form around them can get infected if not found in time. Good Job! And how nice to have your dishwasher working again! I haven't had one for years until this house and I love having it and am so glad it's working.
I have so much catching up to do and it'll be awhile, so I apologize. Mary, I hope you feel better and have a better week/month/year.
Someday I'll get a foodprocessing system and will need a bigger one. With all the dehydrating/freezing/canning I like to do it would help immensely. I need to check and see what a Blendtec is.
Trisch, congrats on doing so well being a Trainer. I know with your insight and empathy and zeal, you're are wonderful at it!
Jennifer, I like Cozy, too. I love those pretty pictures by Thomas Kinkade and want to transport inside sometimes when I look at them. I love his website: http://thomaskinkadegallery.com/stor...FQtThwodSnWRVw
Nikki, sorry about the trials of cookery. I have an Aunt Nikki (short for Nikolitsa) and she's a rip-roaring hoot and when she and my mom get together, they are hilarious and I see them as kids again.
Hi Lori, Joni, Wendy, Jennifer, Trisch, Rose, Nikki, Mary, Nanci, everyone! I'm getting more rest but am still mentally a ding-dong (which I'm craving, by the way, but being good and avoiding).
We had a doctor's appt. yesterday for a wellness check and Shaphan is thriving and in the 97% percentile for height and weight. He is very strong and has been rolling over on his own since 1.5 weeks of age.
He is gaining nicely and over 11 pounds now. In front of the Dr. he was trying to 'talk' and cooing at his brother Jephthah and reaching for him and pulling his brother's hands close! He also, when put on his belly by the Dr., lifted himself on his arms and looked around. The dr. gasped and said, "Look how strong he is!"
The babymoon continues and I just want to say to all you mom's with more than one child, doing errands, shopping, etc., I bow to how strong you are. It is quite a task to get strollers, carseats, diaper bags, etc., and try and get errands done. It can get quite complicated and you all humble, amaze and inspire me.
