I just got a call from Morgan's teacher asking how she is doing at home. I mentioned a couple of posts ago that she has really slimmed down, her teacher has noticed too. I really don't think it is an eating problem though, she has been picking at her dinners a little more lately but she usually eats a huge snack after school. When we eat out she orders a full sized meal and can generally almost eat the entire thing. I still will be watching though and her teacher is going to make sure she eats her lunch at school.
She was crying at school this morning cuz we are getting rid of Shelby, the momma dog. She got out, well broke out of the garage is more like it, this morning around 2am, with 3 little puppies following her. They woke up one of our neighbors and she took off but they managed to catch the puppies and bedded them down for the night in their garage. They were returned to us at 6:30 am.......thanks..............and also mentioned they get annoyed by how much one of our dogs barks. Um that is annoying cuz we live on 4.5 acres and there is wild life around.....yes that makes dogs bark..........we hear other dogs barking all the time. J asked if they have seen our dogs barking and they said no, so he said then how do you know it was ours? everyone has dogs around here!!!
Shelby is leaving today, there is someone who wants her. In fact they bought 2 puppies and are going to bring back the female puppy in exchange for Shelby. We said that was fine as we don't want Shelby breaking in and out of the garage anymore and hurting the puppies by teaching them her bad behavior. She is a nice dog but runs away way too often and we are just done. We have way too much going on to be dealing with her too.
Morgan was crying about it at school. What we don't understand is why when we say go play with the dogs that they all whine and cry and don't want to do it, but they are sad that we are selling her?? she also has been having friend issues at school, I know big surprise there, pubescent girls fighting??? who knew such a thing was possible? Now add to that all that is going on with J, he is driving down to the Coast tomorrow to go to the Big City hospital to get a second opinion, and the girls have been upset about me having to go back to work, this cold/flu thing that we are passing back and forth, I seem to have been hit with it again and am sick right now .....and you have an overwhelmed family.
