Bath Time: Before and After

This is Molly when we asked her if she wanted a bath. She tried to hide from us, there's only so many places a 55 pound dog can hide.

This is her thank you reward to us. Yes, she peed down the entire hallway. Though I will give it to her, she was whining in the bath which isn't something normal. Since there was a nice line of it and it was on it's way out to the door we're thinking she was on her way to the door but just couldn't hold it. Wonder if the hot water/cold water hand trick works for dogs too?

We had to get another bag, of course the BX didn't have anything appropriate. We got to the NEX and spotted this gem of a bag. Go pokes!!

Yeah, I'm cool like that. I get it from my mom. I measure everything out and make a little model to scale on graph paper. That way, you can move everything around and figure out where it will fit and which layout will give you the most room. Saves you a ton of energy moving bits of paper around than moving around big pieces of furniture. The cribs are the convertable ones, that convert to full sized headboard and footboards, you just have to get the rails. We already had the bed and rails, or so we thought. The plan was to take one of the cribs down and turn it into the headboard and footboard for the full sized bed we already had in there to give us a bit more room. So we got to work to move it around.

This was the result. We discovered after we had taken everything apart that we didn't have the correct rails to make it happen! So the nursery is now a mess. Tomorrow we're off on a mission to find the proper rails, chances are we'll probably have to order them as people look at us confused as we try to describe what we want or need. Here's to hoping they'll ship them here!! Until then, tornado room it is!

Happy First Birthday Sawyer!

My cutest little nephew on his first birthday!

Flintstone gummies are way better than the chewables! At least they don't stick to your teeth like the chewables do! Also way easier on your stomach than the prenatals!

Seriously, quit taking my picture.

Once in a lifetime

Molly never lays in her bed, seriously, never. Her bed is a fighting tool! It's the only thing we allow her to play with that she's allowed to bite us, since it's nice and thick and doesn't hurt and she loves playing with it. So I took this opportunity to catch the once in a lifetime event of her actually using it as it is meant to be used. I think the last time she laid down in her bed was when it was in her kennel and she had no other options.

Tired Out

Charles took her on a super long walk so she wanted to cool off on the tile floor

Happy birthday to ME!

The big 26.....though I do usually tend to forget how old I am when people ask me. I think the last one I remembered the whole year was 21, kinda nothing important happening after that until the big 30!

Voting Time

Must be that time of year......there are billboards instructing you who to vote for lining the streets of Guam. Not to mention the driving billboards put into the back of trucks with megaphones to catch your attention.

On our drive home we hit a wild pig....oops! Charles slowed the car down enough to not do much damage to the car, and hopefully not to the pig either. I don't think the pig was even knocked down, just to the side and then it ran right off. The thing was a monster! I'd say it probably stood up to mid thigh maybe. Thankfully, the airbags did not deploy and there wasn't much damage to the car. There are a few minor scratches that can probably be waxed out, the bumper was pushed in a little bit and the license plate holder was cracked, all easily fixable! Oh, and this is a picture of all the dirt that the pig left on our car, it was one dirty pig!

Broke out the sewing machine to finish up making some blankets for preemies and/or burp cloths, need to finish using up my fabric for it before I leave.

Went to a 31 gifts party today, it was a lot of fun! I brought home this delicious butterfinger cupcake!

Pretty Flowers

These are in my back yard potter. I'm such a horrible gardener, I haven't cut the flowers back any in months yet these still seem to be going strong!

Emergency Room

Yep, made my first trip during pregnancy to the Emergency Room. My tummy was giving me troubles with bad cramping and vomiting. Thus, a trip to make sure button was still doing ok in there after it subsided! Button and me are both doing perfectly! When the doctor pressed the ultrasound down Button kicked out at him like "leave me alone"!

Puppy Dog!

Right now, she's my "kid" in about six months my "kid" pictures will be replaced with pictures of button, I hope.

Looks like it's time to spray for ants, I think they're creating a colony in our roof, they keep going up there. Thankfully we haven't found any in the house yet! I can only imagine what sort of palace they're building up there!

Power of Suggestion Strikes Again

I don't even like bacon, or tomatoes really but when a friend mentioned having it for dinner I couldn't resist, and this BLT was delicious!! I've had a few more since then, yum!

Molly knows how to eat off of a spoon, she loves her yogurt for while she's on antibiotics!

Dad's 60!

Happy 60th birthday old man! I know on the date it says August 6th and your birthday is the 5th, but when this was posted it was still the 5th stateside!

Oklahoma Bound

Yep, I bought my tickets home to Oklahoma last night! Woohoo! 5 weeks 2 days till I will be home for my five to six month baby growing vacation.

Wednesday, August 4, 2010


Molly's got her own pharmacy at home, here's the listing of her meds.
Hydroxyzine two times a day
Temaril P once a day
Cephalexin 2 pills twice a day
Ear cleaner once a day
Ear drops once a day
Yogurt 1 Tbsp twice a day for tummy upset with antibiotics
Also, not pictured, chlorhexidine soap to wash belly and feet twice a week as well as Eukanuba Response FP vet diet for an allergy prone dog

When she doesn't have a skin infection, it basically cuts out the cephalexin and decreases how often we use the ear cleaner and drops and the chlorhexidine soap.

I feel like I quit my job as a nurse at the hospital to be the stay at home nurse for my dog :S

Leukemia Sucks

Just sayin. My mother in law was just diagnosed with acute erythroid/myeloid leukemia.

Monday, August 2, 2010


That's what happens when you have to skip a week of hydroxyzine for Molly because the vet clinic is closed to move offices and you run out while they're closed. To the Vet on Wednesday for antibiotics!

How is that comfortable? I don't know, but she was sleeping like that, woke up when I started taking pictures
