Meet Max!

Here is our new puppy Max. He is an eight week old Beagle. And yes, in the first night, he is spoiled. His nightly resting spot is in bed with Eric. Ho-hum. Daddy started that one!! So we shall see.

Pretty, isnt it?

This is what we woke up to this morning! And guess what? They are calling for a bit more tomorrow! How exciting! Ummm, no not really. I love snow, dont get me wrong. But I am ready for the slightly warmer weather. I want to start my planting. I want the kids to go outside and get the stink blown off them!!I want the ducks to be able to go outside to their new home. I just want it to be warm. Last year at this time we were under almost three feet of snow.So Mr. Sun, please shine down on us!!

Quack, Quack

Its the invasion of the ducks!! Yes that's right, ducks! Eric wanted to get some baby ducks and raise them. And well, I did too. So last Thursday I stopped by the Tractor Supply store and bought some. I brought home four baby mallards. They are adorable. And messy. They are staying inside in a box till it gets a little bit warmer outside. Which I hope is soon. One little guy had figured out how to get to the top of the water bottle. I'm waiting for him to waddle down the hallway any minute! After they get to big for the pen, I imagine we will move them to the farm. Well, maybe most of them. Id kinda like to keep one! But we will see!

At This Point...

I would take one day that nothing bad happens. Sick kids this week, dads still in the hospital and its taking forever for the IRS to deposit the tax money. Frustrations and tempers are running high. I just want things to be "normal" at some point. Whatever "normal" may be for us! I feel like everything is at a stand still. Seems that everything is relying on something else before it can be done. I'm hoping to have everything straight by the end of this month, if not Ill be checking myself in for a vacation at St. Elizabeths!! LOL You all can come wave to me through the windows.

And So it Starts Again

My dad is back in the hospital. Apparently he started to spit blood and come to find out the vein they put in his jaw ruptured. They said this is common. But also they said that if he would have been any longer getting in, he would have bled out. Which scares the hell out of me. Today he had emergency surgery to fix it and is back in ICU. But he's in Massachusetts. I'm really pissed that I cant be there. I don't care how much Lisa reassures us hes ok. If I cant see him then I'm not going to believe it. And if hes fine, then he wouldn't be in there now. So asking for some prayers and positive thoughts our way!
