I'm back!!

No updates in a long while as I have been away. I went back to Saskatchewan to see my family--my parents, sister and her family and my grandmother. It's good to go back once in awhile and remind myself of why I don't live there anymore--like temperatures that reach 42 celisius with the humidity. Give me -30C with a windchill anyday over that silliness! Oh, and I get my kid fix. Hanging out with my sister's kids reminds me of why I have critters. I adore her kids and they are really good kids, but you just can't kick them outside when they get whiney and ignore them til it stops! ;)

Cute, aren't they!?

Stuart survived taking care of the dogs for 10 days and the dogs survived with no major trauma. He once again let Kayleigh loose in the yard and she picked on Delta--my super-shy boy. Delta seems to have won the fight though as Kayleigh has a pretty good nick about ehr eye. Drives me nuts that Stuart insists on letting Kayleigh into the main yard. She'd be fine if all the other dogs were somewhere else. He just can't seem to understand that her unpredictable dog aggression is not something she will ever get over!!! It's part of her temperment and just the way it is and will always be for her. She's a great dog, but she's not meant to be a pack dog!

The cats were not impressed with their daddy! He decided to rip out all the carpet in the room their food and litterboxes are in. It had to be done--gross doesn't begin to describe the carpet--but they were literally pissed off! Not a good thing! Kinda glad I missed that actually! The floor is much nicer now and the boxes are back where they belong. The cats are much happier now!
