So, how was YOUR week-end?

We've been busy! The puppy slept 4 whole hours the first night, LOL. It was not pretty Saturday morning. Oh, and he peed on the carpet 4 times. But, given that until Friday night he could pee wherever and whenever he wanted, the learning curve hasn't been too bad. Today he's done great until he peed twice on the carpet tonight, but at least I caught him mid-pee both times so I was able to whisk him outdoors to finish. He's a good puppy, but until he's housebroken he will require honest, full-time, eyes-don't-ever-leave-him supervision. It's a bit exhausting.

Saturday my husband went to our church's work day. They were priming walls, laying tile, and building the stage. He left the house at 6 AM (neither one of us was sleeping anyway with the puppy whining). I brought Scott up to him around 10. Then they came home around 1:30 and we went to The Sound of Music at a local theatre. It was a fund raiser for my in-law's church. The whole family went, and it was good, but it was also 3 hours long. We came home, let out Riley, and then went to my in-laws for dinner. Then we came home again dealt with the dog, got the kids ready for bed, and collapsed exhausted! The good news is that Riley slept almost the whole night last night. Yea!!!

Today was church, a visit from Aunt Fanny and her kids to see Riley, and then a visit from the in-laws to see Riley and Scott's room. I'm basically bathing RIley every day since he was an outdoor dog and has the fleas to prove it. While I was bathing him tonight, my husband came out to tell me he cut the tip of his finger OFF slicing up potatoes for scalloped potatoes. Never a dull moment! We've finally got the bleeding stopped. It's his MIDDLE finger of all fingers, and he needs to keep it elevated, LOL.

So how was your week-end?
Pin It!

I'm so sorry about your husband's finger! (But couldn't help but chuckle a bit too.)

This helped me remember why I've stood firm about not getting another dog... even though I keep thinking how nice a little one would be (and may actually cave one day.)

Oh no about THE finger...:)
3 HOURS? I love The Sound of Music, but that's an awfully long time for the "hills to be alive"...
