Ahhh, new love
So we are still stuck in sicko land here. It is either the kids or me, me or the kids, but none of us are all healthy at the same time! I hate it. Right now I'm on antibiotics, inhalers, allergy meds, cough expectorant (helps loosen things up), and still think it is turning into pneumonia. I love that we live in an area where fresh produce is so abundant, but hate the fact that it puts lots of allergens into the air. I don't think I have had a healthy September/October for the past 9 years.
On a brighter note, we have a new member of our family. He arrived yesterday (no, I didn't have another baby! lol), and his name is Brownie. He is an Australian Shepard, 4.5 months old, and so stinking sweet. In less than five minutes he was a welcome addition to our household, sitting prettily, fetching, laying down when told, and chasing the bigger boy around like a loon. Shorty (our Corgy) was a little confused as to why we would think we needed another dog, but she is mature for her age, so she doesn't get that playing chase and fetch with the kids is FUN, and it can be done even when you are an old lady at the age of 1. They have since established who is in charge, and are getting along great.
