Tim is still not feeling well. I've been after him to call the doctor and see if they can see him in the afternoon on his way home from work. I guess he finally called yesterday and left a message, but didn't hear back. I'm hoping they call him today. He is the type who when sick will just keep pushing until he's really sick....like at death's door sick. He's been driving me crazy *and scaring me half to death* for 28 years.
My sweet little poodle puppy has an appetite for destruction. She will chew and shred anything she can get her teeth on. Keeping the mess cleaned up is a constant battle. Keeping her from chewing important things is a bit of a losing battle. She will dig and pull at carpets and rugs until she gets a fiber pulled out and then she goes to town. All of my area/throw rugs have "snags." She chewed the base of the Malibu pilates chair to the point that if I want to sell it I'm not going to get much. I just caught her chewing a corner of the storage ottoman I use for a coffee table. She's chewed chair legs, garbage, shoes, purses, stuff in purses, puzzles, books, magazines, and the other dog.
|She's well equipped with DOUBLE fangs!|
Megan keeps plugging along. She is seeing a lot less of Cody, but they do still talk and get together a little. She's been going tanning and to the gym, which makes her feel better about herself. Now, if we could only find her a job. That would do more for her than anything, I think. Well, that and some new friends. She and Cody were no sooner officially broken up when someone she used to know, but hasn't spoken to in a couple of years started telling people vicious lies about her. She ran damage control and I guess everything is okay, though she had it out with that kid.
The baby boom in Tim's family continues. We found out yesterday that we're going to be a great-aunt/uncle again. Our oldest nephew and his wife are expecting their third child in August. That will make 5 babies in a year and a half! We Artis's are good breeders. Tim's mom had 7 children in about 10 years. They had 9 grandchildren in 10 years (and that is with 3 of them never having kids!). So far there are 9 great-grands in about 6 years.
I'm doing okay with the "Intentional" thing, I guess. I've been sticking to starting the day with reading the Bible, eating a small, healthy breakfast and taking a healthy snack to work to get me through the morning. I'm doing better about blogging, but still getting stuck for longer than I want on Facebook. I'm making the effort to do things. It'll get there....it takes what? 21 days? for something to become a habit?
Now, moving on to....
