This afternoon I was trimming Lucy's nails- it's a difficult job but someone's got to do it. I was moving right along until I accidentally cut one too short and it started to gush blood. I took immediate action. I applied pressure and gave her tons of kisses, which seemed to do the trick. After her speedy recovery, Lucy jumped on top of my new quilt and got blood all over it! UGH!!

I really thought I'd have a blood stained quilt for life but I did a google search and found that such things as ice and/or peroxide take blood stains right out of fabrics. I was a little skeptic but low and behold it worked! I rubbed the ice over the stained areas and it came right out.

That was pretty much the excitment for this evening. Tomorrow is school picture day. Oh joy- let the fun begin!

Sssaaayyy chhhhheeeeesssseeee!!

I have almost fully recovered from my spell of strep throat. I came down with a horrible sore throat Thursday night. Around 5 a.m. on Friday, I decided to call in sick and make myself a doctor's appointment for that afternoon. After I dropped my plans off at school I spent the rest of the day in bed. Travis came home a little early and took me to get my prescriptions and a few groceries. When we got back to my place we decided to go to Conroe and spend the weekend up at his parents house since it was empty. I slept most of Saturday and by Sunday I was feeling much better. Today I feel just about 100%.

Thanks goes to Travis for taking such good care of me!!
