This Weekend Pooped Me Out


Halloween was a great success. It was pretty cold but the children wore extra sweaters to keep warm. Ian dressed like Clark Kent from Smallville and I wore my inflatable pumpkin costume as I do each year and felt like an ass like I do each year. But it makes my children happy so I do it. Some dude kept taking my picture. Freak. Those darn paparazzi follow me everywhere.

The girls and I lasted about 45 minutes before returning to my mom's house to wait for Sam and Ian, who rolled in about a half hour later. Those kids cleaned up.

Today we finished the last of our puppy-proofing and went to pick up Willow in the early afternoon. He was snuggled with his two sisters under a bush in the backyard. When we gently pulled him out, the other pups followed and the three of them nuzzled one another and licked each other's faces like they were saying goodbye.

Now you know I cried. You don't have to wonder because you just know I did.

He is a delightful little animal. He has pranced around checking things out and had several naps. He took to his bed immediately and even whimpers when he has to go outside to piddle. He had one little accident but that's because we missed his cues. We took a few pictures of him so I'll try to post them tomorrow.

Ian's best friend *G* came for dinner tonight so we could celebrate his birthday with him. I cooked a roast, mashed potatoes, carrots, corn and gravy, with a chocolate cake for dessert. Very good if I do say so myself.

That's all I have for you today. I am pooped.



  1. Me too! I bet we sleep good tonight. :)

    Blessings girl!

  2. Awww! I'm picturing Willow saying goodbye! *tear*

    I'm glad he is settling in well and hope to meet him soon!

  3. I can't wait to see pictures of Willow! I would've cried as he said "goodbye" too, that's so sweet!

    Your dinner sounds delicious!

  4. Totally funnier than me!!

  5. OK that dinner sounds like HEAVEN!!
