Weekly ramblings......

The Dog Days of May...
I took the puppy to the vet on Monday and she checked out to be one healthy little pooch! Got her shots, wormer, and flea meds and was good to go. She has definately come out of her shell this week! What a little scrapper! She likes to get after it! Deuce has decided he doesn't know what to think of her either! She likes to take the kamikaze method with him. You know, run as fast as her little legs will possibly let her and barrel into him if she gets there fast enough! He doesn't really know what to do with this! If he sees her coming he just takes off in the opposite direction. I will say that in the past day or so he has been coming around a bit. **Sometimes** he doesn't take off right away. He waits to see what she'll do 1st and then take off! It has been pretty interesting!

Deuce hasn't felt too good this week either. He has double ear infections. Poor guy :( I have to wash his ears once daily and put antibiotics down in them twice daily. He DOESN"T like it at all! I don't blame him -- his ears are pretty tender right now. The meds seem to be working though. He has perked back up.

Oh! And I can't forget this one. Dixie was being all sweet to her daddy the other night while he watched tv. Mike was holding her while she laid on his chest and she did it. Yep! Pooped right in his lap! He was totally grossed out and all I could do was laugh. That stuff usually happens to me.

It's all good now.... :D
I waited a week and a half to get some information on the interview and got a call on Wed. from Tamara Dean, principal at the school. Seems I got me a job! :D I am so flippin' excited! I will be teaching 3rd grade next year. Really looking forward to it too. I think it will be a good thing. I will be at the girls' school, in Allison's grade, and not far from home. Talk about losing a ton of stress........ I can breathe a little now. Now I just have to wait on my classroom. It may be a while since they are doing some construction and remodeling on the school. :( I'll be as patient as I can.... ;P

Softball Woes....
Well, we played ball again last night....minus our starting pitcher. (He was out of town for work.) We were pretty evenly matched up and put up a pretty good fight against a team that had a record identical to us -- 4 wins, 0 losses. To make a long story short we lost by 3 runs. I have to say that losing really sucks. A lot. I played catcher once again and today my legs are screaming at me! And, for some odd reason so is my left shoulder. All I do is catch with my left arm so I don't know what that is all about. I'll live though. I do, however, need to start doing lunges and squats around the house so righty and lefty don't hurt so much from squatting behind the plate.

Something sad...
Heard about a motorcycle accident earlier this week. Apparently, a truck pulled out in front of a guy riding a motorcycle and the accident killed the motorcyclist. He was only 28 years old. He and his wife have twins that are 3 or 4 years old. She teaches at the school I will work at next year and I have met her. My heart is aching for her right now. I can't even imagine what she is going through.....Keeping her fam in my prayers......

It has definately been a week for me. So glad it is the weekend! Counting down the days to summer vacation! Only 9 more days to go!

All I can say is with all the pets that I have, I have never had one poop one me. That is a new one for me. It is also too funny!

Congrats on the new job. I can't even imagine how excited you are to have a permament position!
