My sweet Rocket dog turned 8 months yesterday.
Let's see...Right now he likes chewing water bottles and milk jugs. Long car rides with his nose out
the window. Puppacinos at Starbucks (whip cream in a cup)... stealing my yogurt. Like right out of
the cup when I'm not looking.
He's still allergic to something, and on medicine. Which he has decided to not like taking anymore.
No more pill pockets. He will either not eat them, or put it in his mouth and hold it there until I'm not
looking. Then...ploop. Spits it out.
I've tried grinding his pills up and putting them in yogurt or pumpkin. But he knows they're in there.
He'll lick all around it and then just stop.
Last night he knew I was putting something in his pumpkin, so he hid under a table.
And he would not come out. Which was funny, because he's too big to be under that table.
After 5 minutes of wrestling, and me having more pumpkin on me than in his mouth...I called it good.
And he knew he won.
Tomorrow is the first day of school. And while I am very ready for fall, football games, soccer games,
cooler weather, sweaters, and crispy air...I will miss the kids. Rocket will too.
(At least he doesn't lay at the door and lick it when Iz goes to work anymore.)
It's a little insulting how sad he gets when they leave. Like he's stuck with me. Big dramatic sighs
I am also very ready to MOVE. It was supposed to be this weekend, but that's not looking very likely.
And if I'd had a dollar for every time someone asked me if the house was done yet, or if our house
had sold yet... I wouldn't need a construction loan.
But look... see anything different?
No more big pile of construction junk. And holy cow, was it full of bees!
Yikes. And no more porta-potty. (Told you we weren't keeping it... although, if the plumbers
don't show up soon, I may want it back.)
To the left where the big pile of dirt is, will be grass. And this weekend, Iz has a lift coming
so the house won't be gray and yellow anymore! Woohoo!
And some progress in the kitchen! Crown moulding, cupboard doors, and a backsplash!
Ok...one last day before the new routine.
I'm running to Mt. Vernon with Iz. He has an appointment, and I have a date with Hobby Lobby.
And lunch together...awesome. <3
Oh, and a house showing. So some serious cleaning.
Happy Tuesday to you!
