Mother's Day...

Oh my Goodness!!! Do you realize that "Mother's Day" is only TEN days away!?!? Do you have that special gift picked out yet??

If not - how about a Beloved Keepsakes Photo bracelet? They are completely personalized with your photos! You can add all the kids or the grand kids (or in my case the grand puppies!!!) I promise you they are a GREAT gift for your mother or grandmother!

It is not tooo late to order... but I have to have your order no later than Monday in order to get it complete and shipped back to you in time!!!

As for me - I am off to Disney! I will catch up with you on Monday!

Hope you all have a GREAT weekend!

More puppy news....

So sorry I didn't get around to posting yesterday! Man - I know you are probably sick and tired of hearing all about the puppy - but I swear - this is what is controlling my life right now. I truly don't know how all you "REAL" mothers out there do it!!!

I am once again very sleep deprived - but each night is getting a little bit better - and today - well today I am anxiously awaiting the UPS man!!! Yep - today is the day that life is going to get better (at least I am hoping and praying)!!!! Why? Why you ask? Well I ordered this -

Whooo Hooo - supposedly there is enough room for the crate for the puppy to sleep in, a puppy pad, and his food, water and toys!!! So - I am HOPING that this means I no longer have to get up every two hours to let the little one out to potty!!! Whooo hoooo!!!

Now I do think that tonight will be the night to test our will with the crying - hmmmm which reminds me I need to go find my ear plugs!!! But I have to say - hubby has so totally lucked out that the puppy pen is suppose to arrive today - you know the day before I leave for Disney and he has to deal with the puppy 24/7!!!! (How did that happen!?!?!)

But honestly - how can you complain too much - when it is this you are complaining about???

Other than that - I have to say I really have nothing to report - I haven't had time to design, I haven't had time to upload new products or finish tweaking the new store... I just haven't had time period!!! LOL

Off to Disney tomorrow. Talked to my friend who I am going with and it sounds like a WORLD WIND Tour! Lucky for me - the three women I am going with all visit Disney often (unlike me - who hasn't been in 32 years!!!) and they have a game plan! Sounds like we are heading out tomorrow about 4 PM - getting up early Sat Morning and hitting the Magic Kingdom, Lunch and the afternoon at Epcot, then back to the Magic Kingdom for the parade and light show and we plan to close the place down (which I think is midnight!!!). Then on Sunday Morning we are heading to MGM Studios and then heading home that afternoon!!!

Whew - sounds like a blast! For once I am glad I am a tag along and I just get to go where I am told to go!!! Especially since all these ladies know where the places to go are!!! Whoo hooo!!!

Well that's it... oppsss hear the puppy crying! I'll try to stop in before I leave tomorrow!

Until Next Time!

What were we thinking?!?!?

I have no clue what we were thinking when we added another addition to the McDonald Clan... I really don't!! I mean - puppies are a LOT of work! Getting up every two to two and a half hours to let them potty. The crying and crying and crying at night - and then... our other dog is NOT happy at all! She doesn't like her new little brother one little bit! Hmmm - it sounds almost as if we had a baby! And hey - there is a reason I don't have kids!!! Bahahaha!!

Needless to say since I am busy with the little one, I haven't gotten a lot done on either the store or my cutter files the past few days! I hope to change that soon - BUT I am not holding my breath! LOL

I think the rest of this week is taken up with STILL trying to find a dress for the next Military Ball coming up and then getting ready for my trip! I have to say I am feeling a little bit bad about leaving hubby here all weekend to fend for himself and the puppy!! (Just a LITTLE BIT you understand!!! I mean hey it won't hurt him to see what it is like to get up every two to two and a half hours!) But I can't gloat toooo terrible much as he has a business trip next week and that leaves me to bear the brunt once again!!!

If you have emailed me in the past few days- please forgive me! I promise to get back to you as soon as I can... Once again I am playing catch up!!!

Well I guess that is it for now! (I think I am off to take a nap while the puppy sleeps!!!)

Until Next Time!

A new member...

First I want to say thank you sooo very much for all of you that visited my sale, downloaded the "TR" file and passed on the website to the new store! I appreciate it greatly!!! I also want to thank all of you that sent me well wishes on the new store... I too hope it goes well otherwise hubby says I may have to get a real job!!! LOL

Second I want to introduce you to the newest member of my household!

Don't ask me how this happened! But yep we got a new puppy!!!! Well, the truth is that we have been talking about it for a while! Inja (my female Shih Tzu is three and a half years old and we have been feeling pretty bad that she doesn't have a play mate!

Our neighbor next door had a gorgeous Golden Retrieve and Inja and Rascal use to play and play. Well our neighbors had to upgrade the size of their home so they moved... and hence no more playmate for Inja. Add to the fact that I picked out Inja, trained Inja and lived with Inja for almost 14 months by myself because Hubby was in Iraq so you would think she would be MY dog - right?!?! NOT! Hubby came home and now she barely pays any attention to me!

I should have known better - the breeder had said - if you get a girl she will love you - but if you get boy he will be IN LOVE with you... so this time - we got a boy!!! (Maybe he will turn out to be my dog after all!!! LOL)

So far it isn't going as well as I hoped! Inja doesn't want anything to do with him AT ALL! She actually looks at him with distane! And will scrunch her nose up like he smells even though I bathed him in the same thing I use for her!!! LOL As for him - he sooo wants to be her friend and is trying sooooo hard!!!

Well - not a lot else going on - trying to put the finishing touches on the new store and also starting to plan for my trip this weekend! I am going to Disney with three other women for a girls weekend!!! I just can't wait!!!

Hope you had a GREAT weekend!

Until Next Time!
