Have had my 6 year old nephew the last 2 days.
Shooooo, is all I have to say about that.
I am pretty tired and the house is a wreck, dishes waiting, laundry really waiting.
I know, its only been days that we were complaining about the rain and how cool it was.
The last few days have been well into the 90's and supposed to stay that way.
My brother took my car to have the ac worked on and its blasting out pretty cold air right now.
But, with this car, I have learned to never get my hopes up to high.
I have had it worked on each summer for the last 3 summers.
And after a few weeks, it messes up again.
But heres hoping I can make it thru the hottest part of the summer anyway.
Not really planning any long trips, which is a real shame, cause this summer will be 5 since we have gone away.
I really could use a week on the beach.

Big weekend ahead....Well, no fun plans. WORK WORK WORK.....Getting some land cleared, trees and brush cut, a ditch dug, a very very long ditch.
So, maybe a good workout, and its supposed to be around 95 the next few days.
I just really hope some help shows up.
But I wont hold my breath, it seems when they need something from you, they are knocking down walls, but when you need them, well, you know the story.
My dog seems to be getting better, he isnt straining and pushing so much.
Seems to be eating, I wish he would drink more water.
And maybe I should lead by example.
Hope for all of you to have a nice, warm, sunny and safe weekend.

Well, good news to report, Sparky had a bowel movement. He actually had a couple, now he is still straining a little and is still not feeling great.
Gets winded from straining, but the stool is alot softer and seems to be getting easier for him.
I am hoping by tomorrow with another dulcolax and some pumpkin mixed into his food, he will be doing alot better.
I have to find a better quality higher fiber dog food and the vet said it would even be ok to mix some tasteless fiberplus or metamucil in his food once in a while just to keep things moving.
I had an ok day, stressed from worrying about my dog but feeling a little better.
My son seems to be finally getting some life lessons, or so he says.
He went to the unemployment office yesterday, since his employer is being a total waste of space and not letting him have any hours.
He will hear something soon and even went and took a test to go back to school.
And today he had a job interview.
I guess taking a stand back and forcing him to see that life doesnt owe him anything but he has to take steps to get what he wants is working.
I hope he is being honest about these things and I hope he does return to college and gets any job at this point.
So, the Memorial Day holiday is upon us and its hard to imagine doing any kind of fun activities with all the death and destruction going on across the mid west and south.
More storms are predicted and I am hoping they pass quietly.
Gotta really get back to exercising more regularly.....I really, really do.

gonna run and watch the biggest loser, had to take my dog back to the vet, he is still not able to have a bowel movement, but is making progress, he has nothing much in his stomach to digest, he finally ate today....am hoping the meds they gave him will help.
i hate seeing him in this shape.
praying for the people of missouri and seems like more tornadoes and storms coming.
have been up since 6, and am pretty worn out.

My dog is sick. I had to take him to the vet today, he tries to go to the bathroom and he cant, so he just strains and pushes, and then as soon as I bring him back inside, he wants me to take him out again.
So, as I always do, today, when I brought him inside, I cleaned him with his little wet wipes and he was bloody.
Freaked me out, so I loaded him in the car and drove to the vet.
They took a sample and checked his stomach. The vet said he isnt constipated because his stomach is soft.
So, he said it could be worms, or it could be a bacterial infection. or some other parasite.
So, they gave me medicine to give him for the next week.
And told me to keep watching him to see if he is able to go or not.
I feel so bad for the little guy, he just lays around like hes so tired.
Makes me think about how humans can complain with pain or whatever is bothering us, and we do alot more than others might want to hear sometimes.
But animals cant tell us what is wrong.
So that was pretty much my whole day. I am tired and havent exercised in days.
I have to really get my butt back in gear.
