Hello! How are all of you doing? Here is a bit of a catch up with things around here in no particular order as my photos seem to load just the way they want, not the way I want.
Work has been mixed for me. Lots of families out with Covid, last week I missed an entire day due to that. It rained that whole day and Little Buddy and I enjoyed a day at home, me puttering and cleaning, him in his pajamas watching shows, playing, reading and all that. It was really nice, I think just what I needed. This week lots more out but I never seemed to be able to make my schedule work so I had an afternoon off. My little ones have been crazy, I have lost a bit of my patience, is it the heat? Are we all sick of summer? Do we need a better routine with school starting soon? Was it a full moon? Who knows but it has been a bit rough for all of us.
Little Buddy got exposed again at camp. I can't tell you how many times this child has been exposed to Covid by sustained close contact. Seems two of the teachers got it and one child. He had a stuffy nose at the beach so I tested him when we got home, no Covid maybe just too much salt water. Camp might be canceled for the week, I am still waiting to hear.
Little Buddy and I finally made it to the beach. I work so much that time is limited and on Friday when I am off there are important errands to run or appointments to keep. Saturdays have been rainy, he is not easy to get on or off the beach, we can't run off if it starts to storm so we can only go on brilliantly clear days. Yesterday was just such a day. We were there by 8:30, played in the sand and then the water for over an hour. Little Buddy had the best time. He swam and swam, threw big rocks at me and walked and almost ran in the water. I miss our pool where he did so much therapy during the summer. Two hours was just enough for him, we headed home for a bath and some relaxing time because he told me he just needed to relax all day.
The boys had haircuts last weekend and boy did they need them. Hank is once again losing his hair on top of his head. We went to the vet on Friday and she doesn't seem to know what is going on. And he is licking incessantly, I mean it is driving me crazy so she gave him a shot for that. I have not seen much improvement yet. His food has not changed which was the reason last time this happened. I am now going to try a chicken/rice blend and get off the fish blend. It just might be he can't tolerate that anymore. They were both so stressed with the move, but we have been here almost three months so they should be settled in by now. We also have different grass here, might be a whole combination of things. If they could only talk and tell us what they need!
And Luna my grand dog spent the night last night with her new collar on. She is not , how can I say it without being offensive, well she is not a real feminine girl, so the collar makes me laugh. She is a big tomboy and rules the roost when she is here, so the pink bow collar just makes me smile.
Have a wonderful week.
Update: A cute little boy just woke up not feeling well. He has tested positive for Covid so we are hunkering down for the week. I have to cancel all my patients, yikes! Hopefully he will recover quickly. Stay safe.
