Poor Baby Bruise

Our youngest 4 legged baby, The Bruise, has a bit of an anxiety problem, especially during thunderstorms or the (frequent) fireworks displays our neighbors like to put on in the summer.

So my studies ended tonight with a panicked pup huddling on my lap. My poor little buddy is a better weather man than the actual weather man is and was able to predict for me the change in weather just in time for me to get all 3 pups (with a lot of coaxing for Bruise) out for one last potty trip before the sky’s opened up. And now we cuddle… Sort of… With teeth hanging out and all.

Fenway isn’t sure what the big deal is… It’s just thunder and rain, not a ball.

Day 34 and 35

Days 34 and 35 of the selfie challenge

Yes, I know, I didn’t post yesterday… It wasn’t for lack of trying. More importantly, I did take my selfie, so today you get a double post along with an update on the exciting and terrifying things that are going on in my life.

Yesterday’s selfie was taken at work on my lunch break. It was a busy day yesterday before work for Liam and I, as we ran around doing last minute errands before he got to spend an afternoon with Grammy and Grampy. My summer semester classes start this weekend (I really love online courses, they really are exceptionally convenient if you have the motivation to actually learn from them) and this last year of college (which I STILL can’t believe is actually starting!) is going to be a busy one as I will need to complete my internship for my nursing home administration license while continuing to work full time and hang out with the babies. Maybe busy is putting it mildly….

Today I put the finishing touches on my internship request letter. I keep having mini panic attacks now, which I suspect won’t subside until I actually hand it to the nursing home administrator where I work. I would greatly appreciate any positive thoughts, finger crossing, and/or praying to who ever you believe in that I will get this internship that I so desperately want! This administrator is (in my opinion) the best there is, and I would love to learn from her.

Liam is off for an overnight visit with Grammy and Grampy F, as well as a couple of aunts and cousins. I am sure he will have a blast. Hopefully Aunty and Uncle Moonshine survive the car ride. Conan gets a fun night of household chores and puppies having panic attacks due to fireworks while I get school and work… I know, the Fourth of July excitement is overwhelming in our house. I have the weekend off!!! So the posts will (hopefully) get a little more fun filled tomorrow after Liam gets home!

And now a bonus puppy picture.

Someone is getting his rest in now… Panic attacks due to loud noises are exhausting, even with daddy cuddles to keep you safe.

Day 9

Day 9 of the selfie challenge: 365 Days of Momma
Coming in just under the wire, though the pictures were taken this morning… I can see that the weekends are going to be especially challenging with posting though taking the pictures is easy enough. I have two shots for you today.

The first is Bruiser, mid panic attack first thing this morning.

Poor baby. Morning are hard.

The next is Liam and I in matching tie dye…

Sometimes we are just that cool.

It was a hectic Sunday… And Monday is looking to be just as busy!
