Just after I posted that, our power went out! It was out for about an hour and a half. You should read today's entry. It was a hard morning in our house today.

Thanks again everyone. I haven't heard any news about it today, which is a good sign.

Alix, I loved the blog entry! So funny! As I posted on the blog site, she is her mother's daughter!

About storms, Cubbie doesn't mind going out in the rain, and he doesn't act scared during thunder storms, but he does stick closer to me during them and appreciates extra hugs then. The poor guy has been stuck outside (while we were gone) during some bad ones, but most of the time he is inside with me "protecting" me from the storms.

Thanks for sharing that. I loved Bugs' little stories in the old newsletters. Now I can enjoy her on a regular basis!

I had a fruit smoothie and half a slice of bacon for breakfast - not blog material

You probably mean those "thundershirts," (a great name isn't it?). I'm just not in a position to spend that kind of money right now. Awhile back I did order some herbal concoction on the Net that was supposed to soothe her. Nope. And she doesn't like to be covered up. It's getting pretty old as often as we have storms in the summertime. Can't wait for winter.

So, thanks anyway, Addie.

Poor Bugs, I would simply die. The only thing I can do before I wake up is run the Keurig.

Lucky dog! And Cubbie is lucky, too!

Right at the moment, having a private "celebration" -- in the past week, my surgeon and my physical therapist both told me "good-bye". They both said to call if I need them, and not to expect too much of myself -- it is going to hurt and I will limp for awhile. But they gave me recommendations and move on! Yay!

Congratulations, Claire! I know exactly what that feels like and I am happy for you!
