I have decided to come to a halt for the link ups today. There are so many I wanted to participate in, but really just thought I need some "me" space. I've been thinking about it a lot lately how I scroll through my blog and don't see much of my real self on here. It is kind of fizzling. Lately I have gotten caught up with the fun link ups and etc. They were so great and so fun and I don't regret them at all. But I think it's important for me to stay true to the reason I started this blog in the first place, and that's to share my stories and keep family and friends updated on our life. So that's what this post will be about today. But no worries, I'll still be linking up for many more moons :)
So a few things I wanted to talk about today.
First, is how I am so upset about our puppy Rayne... Our mischievous little pup has been constantly getting into trouble this past week. About 5 months ago we bought her a large fence play yard to keep her in while we are at work. She loved it! We put it right on top of the carpet and she never had any accidents or troubles. Until last week. We came home to a huge hole in our carpet. We rent right now, so you can imagine the heart attack we had when we saw this. We wanted to keep her in the pen so we went to Lowe's and got them to cut up a piece of carpet to put on top of the torn up carpet. I kid you not, the next day we came home to this......
You can imagine that neither me or Papa Joel were very happy. We then kept her crated for the next three days until we could get to Lowe's again. So three days ago we went back to Lowe's and decided to give it another shot. We found some thick/hard plastic flooring that we thought she would never be able to get out of. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG.
Yesterday after coming home all excited to take her on a walk, we walked into her room and were in total shock. Yes, the dog chewed through the plastic flooring just like she did the carpet. We were both so upset that we didn't even get a chance to take a picture. And y'all I should have. You would not believe the damage she did. It looked exactly the same as the carpet picture, but with hard flooring.
It amazes me. How did we go 5 months with no problems, to all the sudden psycho possessed dog? What do we do? Seriously, we need help and suggestions!
Is the Dog Whisperer available to come over?
From now on, she is being crated, which we hate since we have to leave her in there for a long time. But unless someone wants to make us a platform of tile, then I think we are fresh out of luck. Really any suggestions would be helpful to us at this point.
Okay moving on....
Can we talk about how frustrating it is to prove I'm not a robot? Word verification YOU SUCK! Go away. I counted one day, I re typed that mumble jumble 13 times on someones blog. I feel really dumb and not smart sometimes. The emotional toll this brings is just frustrating. Up until a week or so ago the words were much easier to distinguish, now I just can't make out the words at all. So no worries my fellow friends, I don't have word verification, never have, and don't plan to ever have it. Spam detection has done a wonderful job so far for me.
Did y'all know it's FRIDAY? I kind of forgot and it snuck up on me. This week went by really fast (not complaining) and I am really excited about this weekend. There is a rumor that a brewery around here is going to be serving crawfish on Saturday, can you believe it? I may just go a little crazy if this does pan out and hold true. No worries, I'll blog all about it. Cross your fingers for me :)
Have a great day and Happy Friday !!!!
