12 years ago today, we were blessed with a precious, beautiful little boy who is growing into a fine young man. He's very smart and talented, caring and kind. He's brought us so much joy, and I have to admit, he certainly keeps us on our toes. Happy birthday, Garrett!! We love you, buddy!
I've said this prayer many times this past week, "Lord, lay Your hands gently upon us. Let their touch render Your peace. Let them bring forgiveness and healing."
I Should be Mopping the Floor.
Bitsy, the Diva dog, had a vet check up this morning before work. This puppy has doubled her weight since her last visit a month ago. She's now 8 pounds. I thought chi-weenies were little. HA! Ben jokes that she's pitbull because she always chomps down on his hand with those needle-like and won't let go. I doubt she's pitbull, but who knows. I adopted her from an individual who said she was a chi-weenie, but when I asked if the dachshund daddy was standard or miniature, she said, "The one with the short legs." I kid you not, folks. That is a direct quote! So, who knows what Bitsy's parentage may really be. The vet is estimating that she may end up being twice the size she is now.
She was a little nervous about being at the vet's office this morning, so she crawled up and put her head on my shoulder like a baby. Once she did that, she settled down just fine. I sat holding her like this for about 10 minutes until the vet arrived. She's really a sweet girl, when she wants to be.
Labor Day weekend is here! I need a holiday (read: time off), but I'm a little sad to see this one. To me, this particular holiday has always meant that summer is officially over. I'm not ready for that yet. This year has absolutely flown by, and I want summer to hang around just a little longer.
I hope you all have a very happy and safe Labor Day weekend!
