It's monday.....

What a whirlwind weekend! Well not really but it seemed crazy. Daniel went to the Valley on friday night until Sunday. Saturday we hung around here piddling at this and that. Sam and I got into wrestling. When I had enough I stepped aside and went on to my next activity. Sam decided to tackle the dog. The dog who has a very sensitive hind end whipped around and left small bite marks on Sam's face surrounding his eye. He didn't growl, instead he yelped in pain. For this reason the vet said he did not need to be put down. He was being defensive not aggresive. We are happy with this, but things are changing around here. The dog will remain in the kitchen and we are having a trainer come into our home to work wth us and Jake.

We had a friend in on Saturday night and he and I cooked Taiwanese and Korean food. He then entertained us at the piano, while the kids danced all over the place.

Sunday came and went as Sundays always do. Daniel returned home safe and sound, and the three kids decided to camp in the family room for the night as they didn't have school today.

I took Samea for groceries this morning, then spent a couple of hours with grandmother. She was in great spirits and shared many MANY sories from years long ago. I'm so glad that I am able to spend this time with her. She ate a huge lunch, and I left her with the anticipation of gardening in pots for their afternoon life activities.....

Thanks to all of you who have been checking in. I'm doing fine, just have not had much to say.

Glad you had a great weekend, and am sorry to hear about Jake. He probably was just being defensive, but it is your baby we're talking about here. Good idea getting a trainer. Hope all goes well...

Isn't it COLD TODAY!!!???!! -25 celcius with the windchill BITES!

I think the dog reacted defensively too. I would not want to be wrestled with a bad hind quarter. But I hope they are both okay. Its really nice that you still have your grandmother to share with. Lucky!!

our dog is great but she still needs alot of work. the biggest problem we are facing is the hubby plays too aggressively with her at times and then she wants to play that way with the kids. the training we are doing is teaching me lots, now if only i could teach my husband.

Your weekend sounds like it was busy & pleasant... except for the dog bite. I'm glad it was not a worse bite. How scary to have the bite around his eye.
