Summer Days Driftin' Away.....

Wondering what's new and why I hardly have time to blog anymore? We've been sleeping a little later and I've been reading lots of great books with actual pages! Here are some more of the oH mY wORD family happenings:

My serpent left his calling card....his shed snake skin that #2 suggested we make into a pair of boots like Daddy's.

#1 and I have been hitting the gym. Her first time on the treadmill was pretty hilarious, but she has caught on and looks like a natural.

We went on a cute little trip to Boyd's Bear Factory that we drug The Husband on. He squealed like a girl as we pulled into the parking lot. He was just kidding, of course. As soon as we parked the car in the lot marked with pink paw prints he was begging us to leave. After we "built" 3 stuffed animals (with my coupon, of course) we headed over to a few Civil War memorials so he can get some of his manhood back. Good times.


We've been swimming at our pool, which I will not join again next year because it is always dirty. I pulled a beetle out of my hair today which normally would be a freak thing except that there were about 1 bazillion of them in the pool. I believe I will be getting an estimate soon for an above ground pool in faith that God will somehow provide the finances. And, we will use it to bless people so I don't sound all shallow asking God for a pool. Get it? Shallow? Pool? Okay.....moving on now....

Did I mention there is a snake lurking somewhere on my property?!! I picked some mint today by leaning over the fence and not actually going into the garden area. And, I brought The Dog with me so the snake would have something to bite before it got to me. Trust me. The Dog owes me big time.

Speaking of The Dog owing me big time, I could have made a sizable down payment on the above mentioned pool if not for her last 2 trips to the vet. Today, was her 4th day in a row throwing up. And, she left me a lovely surprise on my bedroom and bathroom floors when I arrived home from the pool. Let's just say it was a digested sock in a puddle of brown liquid (oh my word, I hope none of you are eating anything while you read this). So, off we go to the vet where I admit that she has the bad habit of eating socks whole. And, paper towels and tissues and basically anything she can put in her mouth. The doctor was like "Duh, and you brought her in throwing up and with diarrhea to find out WHY this is happening??". Sooooo, $127 and an injection later, I was sent home with 2 forms of doggie medicine and if it doesn't get better she has to go back for blood work and some sort of tests I can't pronounce nor afford. He reassured me that it doesn't appear to be an obstruction like 2 of the socks tangling inside her intestines (gee thanks, Doc, I hadn't thought of that!). Have I mentioned that the cat we've had for the last 8 years has not collectively in all her life cost me what we've spent in the last month on The Dog? But, I'm not bitter. Really.

Sounds like there are too many insects hanging around you at the moment, yuck! Seriously, put me on the list to visit your pool, and thank you for the support on my new bloggy endeavor.

It's great the way you take your life's experiences and express them in such a way that I feel like I'm reading an action/adventure novel!! My life is boring compared to yours!!!!

For the love of Pete, I'd tell that dog that he better start killing snakes or he's going to be put on a slow boat to China.

Hey I'll just bring the boys over and we'll catch that darn snake. They would be thrilled!!!!
