So far I've kept up with each day. December 1st a family friend stayed with us because he and my husband were leaving at 5:00 in the morning to golf. We went to my favorite restaurant for dinner, Texas Roadhouse.
December 2nd the boys were gone and I had a company come out to the house to give me a quote on expanding our deck. Our backyard is pretty much a blank slate right now with just a big area of grass. The guy that came out had some really good ideas and the prices were in line with the other quotes I've gotten. The biggest problem now will be the weather. I'm not sure how wet it will be in January and we might have to wait a few months longer to get started.
December 3rd I took Coco for a grooming. It was raining before I got home from work (which she loves) so when I got home she was a wet mess. I figured it would be okay because the groomer would be getting her wet for her bath anyway. Once we got there she was so excited she was trying to climb over the gate and the desk to greet "her friends" the groomers. I have never seen a dog that loved to go to the groomers like her. She didn't even look back to say bye as they took her leash. When I went to pick her up two hours later she was climbing into a groomers lap and giving her kisses. She didn't even care that I was standing there waiting for her. She was getting attention and that's what she lives for. She loves everyone and believes that everyone loves her.
Half a day at work today and then I'm off to Starbucks and Christmas shopping. Have a great weekend.
