This is Your Dog on Drugs

This is Cali after I brought her home from her girl surgery.
She kind of looks like a Calvin Klein model.

Working from Home!?!

We recently acquired a nice computer from Monica’s parents so we could hook up to the internet and she could do some work from home. It was either that or get a program that runs Windows on the Mac. We thought free was better than $129. Anyway, we finally got it working and Monica was able to connect to work last night. . . terrible idea! This must be what it feels like for Monica every night I come home with homework. I didn’t want to let her work and it made me so frustrated! I kind of wanted to eat a sock and vomit it back up for attention (thanks for the idea Cali!). However, I let her work while I complained about it. It will be fun to see how it works out!

The Sock That Cali Ate

If you want cute, look at our family photo on the previous entry…
If you want disgusting, look at this picture of the sock that Cali vomitted at 3 AM this morning. I am linking it because it is disgusting and covered in puke. She had this sock in her tummy for a week and a half after stealing it from the dryer while our housesitter was doing laundry. We thought maybe she ate it, but we didn’t really think she swallowed it whole. Guess what? She not only swallowed it whole, but it came back whole. We are very luck she didn’t choke. Can your dog ingest an entire sock?

Now For Some Good News

The good news is that we almost have a handle on the money thing. The fraudulent charges are sitting in money purgatory and we are not sure where they are going to go yet! But, I feel optimistic about the whole thing. Thank you so much to everyone who prayed for this situation, we know it helped.

In other good news, I had my last day of work yesterday and my paychecks run about a month behind, so I will get paid through the month. So, I will be a bum with a little cash flow coming in. Also, Monica posted another great month at work. I cannot tell you how hard she works for every dollar she makes! With this and some other help someone very special blessed us with, we feel like we can actually get some things in order.

Cali is doing great! We made it through the worst of the puppy teething stage, I hope. She actually will just walk up to us and put her head in our laps to get our attention instead of taking a chunk out of our legs. If we could just get her to sleep past 6 AM! Our house sitter last weekend found that out the hard way (she also lost a sock that we think Cali ate). Our precious Cali also ate a dead bird the other day—is that bad? Anyway, we have some family pictures to post *relatively* soon.
