My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
Snowflake! Could you pleeeeeease make a thread showing off your Halloween decorations? I am catching bits and pieces of them and loving every bit of it. I am sure others would love to see them that don't frequent the Countdown. I want to look at them again but having trouble finding them all. The Countdown is getting busy.
Thanks, CAH =)
I will do a thread, absolutely!! I'll work on that sometime this week!

So sorry to hear that things have been difficult lately, and especially sorry to hear about Benji. So painful to part with a furry family member after so many years together.

In the last couple weeks my parents had to untertake some serious medical examinations and on top of that we all felt ill. Luckily the results aren't as bad as expected.
My father has sleep apnoe (as we expected since some years, but he refused to check it out) due to the fact that his throat closes up during sleep. Despite the condition he does have enough oxygen. Therfore he needs a vacuum device which should make sure that his throat won't close up. Hopefully this device will help him rest better.
On top of all those examinations we also had to put our tomcat to sleep. He started to eat less and less and became very quiet. On a Wednesday two weeks ago, my father went to the vet (our old vet retired and a vet corporation took over) and they said he had a kidney and a liver tumour. They also told us that he didn't have any pain at that time and gave us some drops which should make him hungry again. We were suppose to give him this drops once a day. But he refused to eat on Thursday and on Friday mornig he breathed very heavily. My father called the vet corporation again and they told him to bring our tomcat over as he now need to be put to sleep. Otherwise he would get a cirrhosisofthe liver, which would be very painful. My father wanted to make an appointment on either friday (the same day) afternoon or saturday afternoon, as due to work those were the only times he could go. The vet corporation told us, that they are only aviable on friday morning and saturday morning (there are tree vets in that corporation!). So that afternoon my father drove to the other vet, who was aviable. After looking at our tomcat she said that he was in real pain and has been for a couple days. My father was shocked. If he knew this on Wednesday he would have put Benji to sleep that day. Never ever would he take him back home again!
Now, we are happy that he is without pain, but we miss him dearly. He was with us for sixteen years and lived a good life. We also decided to change our vet. Not just because the vet corporation wasn't aviable when we needed them but also because they are more expensive than the other vet. They also want everything paid in cash right after the examination. The other vet still offers invoices. Which is much better.
A new workweek means a week closer to Christmas! That final window can't come soon enough. It's a beautiful morning here in Canada's capital. Temperatures are to reach the lower 20s/mid 70s with a little bit of wind. A perfect way to celebrate the final single digit day of September!
Today is my first official day of job searching. If you all find something, let me know! ...Kidding. I am searching in full force. I hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to the next. After all, a milestone will soon follow!

I haven't been on in a while, things have been so hectic. I started to type out a post earlier but had to shut the computer down to do something. That's the way it's been around here lately. Anyway, I'm sneaking on my phone to pop in and say hello. Our house is still under construction. My husband has done a lot of work in this house over the years but this has definitely been the longest and most difficult project to live through. The wood floors are all sanded and finished. I'll post a picture of my dining room and living room. He also did the kitchen and den floors, all the same. Today my husband plans on putting up molding. Lots and lots of molding. Then lots of painting to do. Then we should finally be able to design the kitchen.
Other than that, I have been super busy with the kids and keeping up with my daily chores. The girls head back to school tomorrow. We have been getting appointments out of the way, shopping and even doing some trial runs to see where their new schools and classrooms will be. They are usually back to school before the 9th, this is kind of late for us. I'm looking forward to getting back to my normal routine.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!
Your floor looks absolutely gorgeous! He did an excellent job! Your kitties made me smile!!!

Watching the Bengals online, if they could just get rid of the mistakes they would be looking better. It's tied now, but I still say I really do like this team this year.
I hope you are enjoying your Sunday and your teams win, except the Bears.
My belly literally growled reading your post! Hope it was delish!!!! Sounds great!! We took our pontoon over to the Moose yesterday b/c my Browns weren't on regular TV & at the Moose we could watch both the Browns & the Bengals. (Hubby is a Bengals fan) What a waste of time!!!
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace & goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
