Full house..

Thursday, May 09, 2013

We dropped Lib, Liam, and Ms Poppy at the airport late Tuesday night. Their flight was suppose to leave at 12:40 am Wednesday morning. Suppose to. Turns out, their flight was delayed and delayed and delayed until they finally canceled it altogether! They weren't able to leave until 8:50 am Wednesday morning. I felt so horrible for them, but there wasn't anything we could do - they couldn't leave in case the flight was suddenly on again, which it never was. They were actually rebooked on a different airline's flight (others on their canceled flight were bumped until the NEXT DAY's flight). Lib said the kids did great, considering how miserable spending more than an hour or two at the airport is.

They're all safely home now, and last message I had from my sister was "My bed has never felt so good!!" LOL Poor chick.

While they're gone now, they've left us with a full house. Yes indeedy!

Mr. Pudgy Porkchop Bailey has officially joined the family. He's 13 weeks, 3.4 pounds of pure joy, ornery, and attitude! He had his first vet visit on Tuesday, and the vet said we are in for it! Mr. Pudgy thinks he is king of the world and we are all here to serve him. He's not far off LOL

The big kids (Millie, Maggie, Bubbie, and Ben) all have various feelings about him. Millie and Ben are pretty indifferent - I think his energy makes them very very tired (I know the feeling!). Bub and Maggie are intrigued by him. He and Bub have developed a way to play together - Bub talks and grumbles at him and nudges him with his nose, trying to engage him, and Pudgy boxes at him with his tiny little paws. The only time so far that my heart has stopped was when Bub yawned and Pudgy put his little head in his mouth to check things out.

We're having quite a bit of fun slowly and safely helping everyone get to know each other. Already they're settling into their 'normal' routine, which was turned on its head with our visitors.

As for me.. well. The next few days will be spent weaning myself from the bagels and chips and pretzels and snacks and pizza that we devoured with abandon while everyone was here. Back to fruit and yogurt, roasted veggies and meat, etc. and so on. I'm not saying it will be easy, but it will be worth it.

R'n'R Half is in 10 days! I'm looking forward to it and seeing 'old' friends and new, soon.

    I can't believe you have another dog, will it ever stop? Too bad you didn't get a pic of head in mouth.

    Your visit sounds like fun. Glad they made it home safely and that your new baby is fitting in. Funny, he'll be the tiniest and the bossiest. LOL Lucky you!

    Good luck with the R'n'R Half. You can do it!

    Yay! I'm glad you got to keep Mr. Pudgy Porkchop! What a funny name! He reminds me of my Chihuahua, with his markings.

    I'm glad to hear that your visit with your family was so fun. Good luck with getting back on track. You can do it!
