I hope you had a nice weekend.
I had a productive, but not very fun, weekend.
On Saturday I took Fred to, and from, the vet for his baby tooth extraction.
Fred’s vet isn’t nearby so it took a huge chunk of my day.
And, poor Fred, he wasn’t feeling very happy when he came home.
I did my best to take good care of him.
The root on the extracted baby tooth was insanely long – that tooth was never coming out on its own.
(Yes, the vet was amazed enough to save it and show me!)
I made sure Fred had lots of cold water and soft food (and a cool place to rest) while he recovered.
By Sunday, Fred had returned to his happy self.
[The challenge on Sunday was to keep him from playing tug-of-war (his favorite game), and/or doing anything else he can’t do for a few days.]
I know some of you are interested in how big Fred has gotten.
I weighed him on Saturday and he weighed 110 pounds … at seven months old!
On a separate topic …
Have you ever been in an IKEA store?
I realize they don’t have them everywhere.
And, to be honest, I usually try NOT to go to one – the stores are just too much (of everything) for me.
But, on Sunday, I made a trip to IKEA so I could get a Raskog Cart to store some of my craft supplies.
I don’t have a very big house and my house is (very) lacking in storage space.
The clutter of small-sized craft related items has been driving me crazy.
I feel so much better being able to put all the crafty stuff, neatly, in one spot.
(And, when I’m not using it, I can roll the cart into a closet where it’s not visible.)
ISN’T MY LIFE EXCITING??
My oldest son and his long-time girlfriend arrive midday today.
Other family members will be arriving throughout the week.
(And, by the end of the week, I’ll have all three of my kids here in ONE SPOT at THE SAME TIME!)
I expect to be able to post each day this week, but if I miss a day you’ll know why.
