I was reading some of the blogs I read, this morning, and trying to comment but google/blogger is not letting me comment as me. Even though I'm signed in it won't recognize me....so...SAM...I was going to comment that reading about your active grandpup reminds me I'm not ready for another dog yet, LOL.
I ended up with a headache around dinner time last night that I just couldn't shake. I ended up even going to bed a little earlier, but at least I quickly fell asleep. Other than to be woken up at the usual 10:30pm by kitty who was done sleeping with me and wanted to go upstairs to his room (ie my office, LOL).
DH just got up (probably because the neighbor dogs were barking up a storm for a few minutes about something) and appears to be now dressed for lawn mowing day, LOL. He last mowed last Wednesday so it's probably time, though it's got to be getting close to being done for the season. We sure are having a horrible "stinkbug" season this fall. Supposedly that means we'll have a very cold snowy winter. Somehow they even find a way to get inside and I am frankly tired of them.
I need to come up with some idea(s) for dd's upcoming birthday gift, next month. She will be 27. I also want to do something to congratulate her when she finishes up her master's degree at the end of next month.
Her dh is on a hunting trip with his dad and uncles and wanted to get a wild hog and he got one already yesterday so he is happy. I don't think he's every hunted those before, but he likes to smoke/bbq so I'm sure he'll make some tasty things from it and have meat to put in their new freezer. She is also enjoying the few days of being by herself. Even though they've only been married 3 years they have lived together 6 or 7 years so she appreciates the break, haha. I told her I am jealous ;)
And it's time to start thinking about the holidays and what I am going to do with/for my mom this year. It was obvious last year that 2 nights was too much/too confusing to her. I wouldn't be surprised if now 1 night away is confusing to her, but hopefully not. But that still makes it hard because that means having her stay only one night means having to drive either to pick her up or take her back on the actual holidays. Spending a couple hours driving isn't my idea of a nice holiday, either. Sigh.........
I just took some mail out to the mailbox and now know what the dogs were barking at. Their lawn maintenance guy showed up, haha. Doing fall lawn maintenance. I figured they were barking because someone had pulled in their driveway. When they are all barking and it only lasts a minute or two, that's what it usually is.
