sometimes you just have to…

Sometimes you just have to laugh.

Like when you’ve been in an 18-foot trailer with four people and three dogs for three days, and you find out that it will take a week longer for your hardwood floor in your house to be usable.

Sometimes you just have to laugh.

Like when you come home to said trailer to find an entire bottle of Ibuprofen broken into, chewed up, and scattered all across the bed by said three dogs.

Sometimes you just have to laugh.

Like when you get stung by a bee at Wendy’s and three days later the swelling has not gone down, but rather is spreading over your elbow and down your arm.

Sometimes you just have to laugh.

Like when you’re afraid that the three dogs will die from an Ibuprofen overdose cause you don’t have money to take them to the vet, and you’re relieved that by the end of the day, none of them has died, but then when you go to bed, you find out that the dogs have thrown up all over all the clean blankets on your bed.

Sometimes you just have to laugh.

we are insane

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

So, we are officially insane.  We just added three dogs to our tiny little house!  They are all black, female, standard poodles, and they are a-DOR-able!!!  It really makes Shanae happy to have a dog again – a big dog – she was missing her dog back home.  The one with a cast, Cosmo,  broke her leg when she caught it on the fence while playing in the backyard.  Zoey is the big one, she’s about a year old, and very sweet.  Her poor tail is crooked, but it gives her personality.  The other two are Cosmo and Miko.  Cosmo actually belongs to Shanae’s dad and will be leaving with him when he finishes helping us remodel our house (more about that later).  Miko is ours!  She is an adorable fuzz-ball.  We love our pets and even though they cause mischief sometimes, they make us happy and make our lives a little less boring.  Cosmo and Miko are about 3 months old and will be the same size as Zoey when full grown.  Here are some pictures:

Zoey!

Zoey! She's a sweetie

Miko is my little fuzzball

You can see her better in this picture.  She has a special boot on her cast.
