Cancun here we come!

Okay so it's 3 days away but I'm not sure if I'll blog again before we take off. I am getting so anxious that I woke up earlier than normal. But that's fine because it allows me some computer time. I know that Cancun will be a blast but I'm also a little concerned about Mollie. I had to take her in to the vet yesterday. This is gross but she had an anal gland erupt. Not a pretty site at all.

I guess I'm only concerned cause the dogs are like my children and I get sad when I have to leave them behind. And the fact that she'll be taking medicine and she might not be feeling well. I feel like I'm the best provider for her and I should be the one doing it. But I have to put my trust and faith into the dog sitter and know that my dogs will be safe and loved while I'm gone. I can be a worry wort sometimes and I should be happy that I have such a great friend that is willing to take care of my dogs while we're away.

Blissful and relaxing Cancun. I am ready for this trip. I can't wait to indulge on the beauty of Mexico. It's going to be great. I'm not really good at posting pictures but when I get back I'll try to remember to post a few. Hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween :)

Anticipation is Building

Cancun is only 10 days away. Hooray!! I can't wait to get out there and enjoy the sun one last week until the Spring. I have my suitcases down, all I need to do is find the time to actually pack. It's been a little busy.

For some reason Johnny decided to take part in a volunteer training with the National Guard. He left today and will be home on Sunday. Although I heard he is the only one coming back on Sunday, everyone else is coming home next Tuesday. I'm glad Johnny decided to come home on Sunday that way if I needed him home before the trip he is around. I only wonder how his daily job is dealing with him being on Drill all the time.

Daisy's last day of training is on Monday. She is getting the hang of looking at me for direction. I pretended to not have a leash on her and she looked at me the whole time. It was fantastic. Mollie usually doesn't have her leash on just for short trips and she is listening well too. I would have to say my dogs are very enjoyable when the listen to me.

I'm going to the Pumpkin Patch with the family that I babysit for. I didn't want to go alone. I guess I'll have to carve my pumpkin by myself though. I'll try to remember to take some pictures of my pumpkin. Last year mine and Johnny's pumpkins turned out really good. Maybe I'll wait for Johnny to get home and we can carve together. Guess I should get packing this week so we have time for that.

My goodness. I know the weather was just nice about two weeks ago and now it's 44 degrees when the sun goes down. It's not getting much warmer during the day either. Today they said it is suppose to be in the 50s. This is not okay. I was hoping for cold mornings and average days. Not cold,cold,cold.

But it's nice to know that in 3 weeks I'll be in 80 degree weather. Oh Cancun. I can't wait. Wish it was next week instead of 3 weeks from now. At least I have something to look forward too. Now it's off to work.

Work is Great!

So this week I think I will have put in at least 30 hours of work. That is in between 2 places but its hours none the less. I have meet a ton of new children and have had a blast with all of them. I can't wait to see how next week goes.

Daisy and I went to training on Monday night. She is doing better with sitting after heeling but I hope to work on it a little more. It's October 2 and the rain has started. It's officially fall in Oregon. I can't wait for the pumpkin patch. I get as excited about it as the kids do. I guess we will find out if Daisy likes pumpkin. I know Mollie liked it last year.

Johnny's brother, Jimmy is coming back to the states from the war zone this week. We are ever so grateful that he is coming back in one piece. Hopefully we will see him soon. He is stationed in North Carolina. Not sure when he is coming back to Oregon to visit.

Every single day Cancun gets closer I get a little more excited. We will be able to have a little more summer while we are there. A time to relax and enjoy the friendships that we have with the people that are going.
