How Time Flies

Wow, time just seems to be flying by. It's been so long since I've crafted. From work, kids activities, home renos, and the big one an ipod touch (trying to keep up with the kids).  My daughter had one and I had to get one to figure out what she was doing on it. She's got me hooked on games. It's like a compitition to see who can get to the next level.

The livingroom renos are moving on. The hardwood is almost down. And this week I'm working on painting. Fixing up wall cracks (I hate drywalling), and a corner that wasn't even taped. Priming walls today, and hopefully painting tomorrow.

Update on dog. Her rupture grew over two weeks.  Trying another round of a different antibiotic. Hoping this one works. Good thing, she's got her appetite back.

Keep crafting, I'm still keeping up on everyone.

Checking In

It's been awhile since I've checked in.  Once again the house is in a mess.  Hard to be creative when your furniture is all over the house.  A couple years ago we had a water leak around the chimney, and it marked the ceiling in the living room.  We finally got around to getting someone in to fix it.  But as usual nothing ever goes smoothly.  The ceiling is stucco and runs the length of the house.  The contractor smoothed out the ceiling ending it just past the front door, and entering the dining room.  That was fine. Looks not bad with the two textures.  But when night fell for the first time on the new ceiling so did all the imperfections.  What we thought looked not bad in the daylight, looked like an ocean under lamp light.  Now we have to decide what to do with it.  Meanwhile that is the room with our main satalite receiver that records all our fav shows.  It is the only thing in that room, (besides the stove that can't be moved) because the cables aren't long enough to reach anywhere. The TV is in our bedroom.  We can at least watch DVD's on it. 

On top of that, we had to rush the dog to the vets on Monday.  Noticed her licking her butt.  On closer examination, there an extra hole back there.  After an afternoon at the vets.  She had to be sedated in order for them to examine it.  We took her home drowsie on morphine.  What a sad looking girl she was.  We got her home and she wobbled her way downstairs rather quickly to her crate, and crashed.  Well what a treat trying to put the cone on her.  She wanted nothing to do with that.  I'd put it on, she'd claw it off.  This went on several times.  I finally decided it was too big and cut it down.  Well I cut too much off.  So back to the vets this morning to buy another.  This time I measured to make sure.  She's having a hard time navigating the house, the cone ketches on doorways and walls, stopping her up fast.  Hopefully she'll heal fast.  By the way, she has a ruptured anal gland. 

Hoping to get back to the swing of things shortly.  Till next time.  Keep crafting.
