Hudson is 1 and the monsoon

Today our crazy male puppy turned 1!!!

Because of the crazy rain, I didnt even get out to get him some special toy or something. I will get him something hopefully tomorrow when (hopefully) the rain water recedes.
This is just the small amount of flooding in the field behind our house.

I did not get any pics of the water way up on our side yard or during my tense drive to and from the schools. My hometown in Rhode Island has been hit real hard and I know many people are feeling the strain of the flooding and my prayers go out to them.

I lost my cell phone in the middle of trying to pick up Kiley from school today. I drove through some puddles the weather channel would have told me was a complete No-No. I needed to get my baby! I am still waiting to see the update on whether or not Kiley will have school tomorrow because as of right now I can see that the road is still blocked off by her school.
CJ went to the doc because he was limping weird. He still does it off and on but he does not express any pain so we are watching it.

And that is about it for now, one more day in March in Connecticut! Wow! Time is flying and I do not like that.
Oh, and CJ is eating dog food right now! What is WRONG with this kid?!

No Puppies Yet

Well, after thinking we were getting closer to having pups, we are now into our second night of nothing! Rosa's temperature is fluctuating from 99.5 to 100.1

This probably means we are closer but, not there yet! I can feel and see the pups moving and it is just incredible to watch! And of course, it makes me happy it is NOT me this time! LOL! Although, I feel bad knowing what my poor pooch has to go through! I was hoping the pups were going to be born today because today is Hudson's 1st birthday! Wouldn't that have been an awesome birthday present?! HA! Not for HIM!

Rosa definitely hangs out by my feet most of the time if she has the opportunity. I guess we will be having April babies! I am hoping that Mom and babies are strong and healthy and we have a great outcome when all is said and done.

There is a huge interest in the puppies once they are born that I am going to have to come up with some sort of method to find my puppies the absolute best LIFE LONG homes. Even if they are Marley! LOL!

I am curious to see if they are going to be black or yellow or what they will be. My guess is there are 5 puppies and they are all black! We will see once the time arrives if I am right!

Chris built a whelping box. It is certainly not the best box, but it was still made with love! She is still eating and doesnt seem too out of sorts yet. She still loves her treats!

Milk does come out of her nipples and it can even be seen there spontaneously also!

So, time will tell! I just wish I knew how many more days....

Here is our Rosa tonite.

Spring Fever!

We have been SO happy to be outside! Although, to me, this winter didn't seem too long... we are really enjoying the beautiful weather and try to stay outside as long as possible. I know we will probably have some cruddy weather still ahead... but, for now...... We have SPRING FEVER!

and the nipple hair has left the building... oh wait, there is a whole bunch of it under our butts on the loveseat!

TOTALLY didnt mean for this to happen. Thought for sure I had kept them apart well enough. A friend told me that it was possible that my doggie was experiencing a "false pregnancy" because she was coming out of her heat cycle... I am not so sure. My dog was super scrawny... and now... welll..... not so much. What do you think.????

5 Question Friday!

My Little Life

Thank you Mama M. for hosting this awesomeness so that at least once a week I might have something to write on my blog!
This week has been a SUPER crazy week. Between crazy neighbors, adolescents who do not have to be responsible for their actions and taco bell ridiculousness... we have had our share of drama for the week. More than our fair share I guess.
I found a pretty cool apartment place in Florida which might be an option for us when my husband is deployed. Definitely on the "short list" just in case I can not find a place that I can have my dogs. (Who would have thought it was so ridiculously hard to get a place with pets?)

So... here it goes... my Friday 5....

1. What's your guilty pleasure? FACEBOOK.... and the computer in general. I spend WAY too much time on this which gets me in to "trouble". The bad thing about facebook was played out this week with people making assumptions that a totally random, innocent post had something to do with them. (Vanity on their part?) But, I do enjoy facebook and farmville especially. Wasting my life on a computer farm! Better than drugs or something. HAH!

2. What is your favorite TV series? REALITY TV! I love Survivor, Amazing Race, The Biggest Loser. I used to be a House faithful person. And LOST. But, I guess I got "lost" last season! I am a big fan of Teen Mom on MTV. I could go on and on.. so, REALITY series get me.. but not the LOVE ones... can't people form healthy relationships on their own?? I dont know.

3. Can you speak any foreign languages? I used to be pretty darn good at READING french. My college professor was quite tipsy most of the time so we did a lot of reading and writing as she slurred words to us. Oh and BOY did she WREAK! Booze....

4. How many pairs of shoes do you own? Not many. Definitely not any girly ones. What not to Wear on TLC would have a FIELD day with me. I dont have any reason to wear anything other than crappy stuff. I sit home all day. I have my sneakers which are pretty broken in. I have my Gym only sneakers which are pristine still. I have a pair of snow boots. A pair of hiking boots I have had for probably 8-10 years. I have some other shoes in a bin under my bed from when I had a job (2003 @@) and I think I have a pair of brown "dress" shoes in my closet. Slippers. Which are OLD (2005 I think) hmmm.... I dont wear them much. Maybe there are some generic crocs in the closet from when I was pregnant (2007) Dont know though. I might have one missing. I do have a singleton Skecher under my bed too. Should toss that. Thought I would find its match someday!

5. What's your favorite kind of M&M's...peanut, almond, straight up regular, etc.? PEANUT! But I can only eat them on the SLY when I am out without the boy... and then of course brush teeth and wash up real well once I arrive home. Usually consumed when I know he is in bed for the night while I am out getting some errands done. So, it doesnt happen much.
