What a Month!!

I apologize for the lack of blog posts this month. We have been overwhelmed lately. Jim has been working at a shutdown - the result has been 14 hour work days - he's had one full day off and that was the day of my gallbladder surgery. I had that nasty little organ removed last Wednesday - the surgery went well and I've been feeling a bit better each day. I think the worst part was trying to recover from the anesthetic - the nausea and dizziness were pretty bad for a couple days. In the meantime, we're just trying to get through each day. My parents have been working overtime helping us out and they are both exhausted. Jim and I agreed that there aren't words to express how grateful we are to them. My wonderful sister-in-law Colleen came and hung out with me the day after the surgery and my incredible Aunt Gaetanne came the day after and provided some much needed exercise and entertainment for Murphy.

In the meantime some pictures. We are hoping that our lives return to normal in June....we've all agreed that we can't go on this way much longer...

The old 'trail of the toilet paper'. Everyone who has had a puppy can relate to this picture. I wonder what fasinates puppies with toilet paper and bathroom waste baskets?

... but just look at the innocence of the 'sleeping dog'.

You can't help but love him.

love, hugs and kisses
