Still alive

It's been a hectic week here, but us four are still alive.

I have a post planned for Merida, but in the meantime, just to give you an idea of the craziness around here:

- examining and then cleaning up puppy vomit after Merida ate a tiny pebble.  I was glad to examine this one because I confirmed the pebble was out of her system.

- a few puppy accidents.

- a bleeding lip when Merida jumped at me.

- Gimli wondering why this fluff ball is still here and why she's sharing his room.

- back pain on my part on account of bending over 50 times a day.

- leg and hip pain on account of squatting for several minutes in a row.

- Exercise regimen stopped for the time being. On a side note, I should hold Merida and get some squats in!

- Gimli tummy troubles at the beginning of last week.  The poor dear, he's better now though.

- People calling Merida "murder" or mispronouncing her name even after we've corrected them.

- Cuddling with sleeping Merida.

- Having Gimli around to teach her the "good" things and a few "bad" things.

- Fitting in play/cuddle time with Gimli and being thankful I don't have to worry about him jumping at me or nipping at me with daggers puppy teeth.

- At this point, I just want to do this:


  1. I hate it when people mispronounce names after you've corrected them! It is like they never heard you, they just don't listen usually is what I find. This comes from 20 somethign years of having a last name that is difficult to write and spell! I went from 12 letters to 4 when I got married! Plus, how can someone think something so cute and small like Merida would be called murder?! Unless of course they are familiar with Corgi puppies and how much of a little terror they can be sometimes. ;)

    People always thought that I'd say "Quinn" instead of "Gwen" when I'd tell what her name was. I had to start to say "Guh-win" for them to hear me right.

    1. LOL, I hear ya. So far we've had "Murder", "Meredith", "Meriiida" and "Meridian". After all the nips I've had in the past week and a half, I'm starting to feel like I should have called her "Murder"! :P

      We aren't too phased, so long as she knows her name :)
