It’s All Fun and Games and then You’re Wearing the Cone of Shame

This summer has been a shitshow. Busy as ever, hot as a fuck and I swear to God I am losing my mind. The new puppy is awesome, she's super smart (can already sit, shake and lie down on command) and such a sweetie pie. She also has tons of energy and sharp little puppy teeth. Ruby has been wonderfully patient with all the puppy

It’s Officially Summer, We’ve Been to the ER

Summer is officially here now that we have made our annual trip to the ER. We go in the winter time too but it has been a while since the cat scratched my son's eye or he had a 50lb weight drop on his finger. This time it was my daughter who got to make the trip.
