Week in Review (a day or so late)

This is a picture heavy post, and it's not in chronological order (which really bugs me).
Did you know that doggy medication comes in huge blue bottles? I didn't, until now:
Sweet Scilla tried to hop out of the car last weekend and couldn't. She also couldn't jump up. When she stopped eating, we took her to the vet. It's a hip injury. Don't worry, she'll be fine. Here are some pictures from my doggy photo shoot this week. Obviously I have a cheap point and shoot camera, but Scilla was very cooperative.

When I was doing the dishes one night this week I dumped the "water" out of theses bottles and was greeted by dozens of little creatures that had been "swimming" for days:

Sophie has decided that one day she will own a spa. She has given spa treatments to everyone in the family and a good number of people in our extended family. She's actually getting quite good. Thank you NuSkin for the gift basket you gave to my husband. Sophie couldn't have wished for a better present:
We had the Science Fair a couple of weeks ago which meant SLIME...


It was also Valentine's Day.
Joseph got me a Kindle and I absolutely LOVE it.Emma got sick which included a fever and HIVES... (don't tell her I posted this. she'd be mad)I got an awesome new mirror at Ross and talked the cashier down in price because there was a small crack. Success!
Suzy & Ryan's baby boy Cole was blessed last Sunday so we made the trip up to North Ogden. It was a great day (despite Scilla's hip injury which occurred sometime between when we got to Suzy's place and when we got home. hmmm.... NALA?)
Other news of note...
Our beloved cat Sammy has a new home. He was tormenting little Bells and then started "marking" his territory. That was the final straw. The great news is that our cousins took him! Yay for the Gleasons!
Sammy loves his new home. He is king of his castle. I was a little surprised at how quickly he seemed to adjust. I mean, we did love & care for him for YEARS. Now he barely even acknowledges our presence, but I'll get over it... eventually.
Brenden & Sammy
Do you know who's really happy now that Sammy's gone? Bells is in heaven.
No more living in fear of the big orange monster.

That about wraps it up. I've been working full-time for the entire month of February. I'm ready for a break in March. I'll need it since March begins "Birthday Season" for the McRae children.

Until next week...

Don't Faint. I'm back. Sorta.

I'm thinking about trying something new. The blog thing has become slightly overwhelming for me. With working full time, Joseph gone all the time and the general demands of three kids, a dog, a cat, a home, a church... blogging has obviously taken a back seat.

My new idea is that I'll commit to blogging once a week -- a "Week in Review" of sorts. I'll post about the previous week... a little, or a lot.

We'll see how it goes. I'll probably do this posting on the weekends, so maybe by next Monday the McRae Diaries will be back in action. Just maybe :)
