First, thanks to all of you who responded to my last blog. I sometimes have to be reminded that there really is a lot on my plate and I'm not a slacker for being tired. Dad seems to be coping and is managing with the resources we put in place. He still gets very down about the sudden change in his life but is trying to keep moving forward. Most days that is all any of us can do.
My word of warning this week is to keep your dogs and cats safe from coyotes. Over the weekend my good friend Sue had her dog killed in the fenced back yard by a coyote that sailed right over the wall. Sue and her husband knew the coyotes were hanging around the neighborhood and were trying to be especially careful to go out with Taz or check the area carefully. In a flash it was too late. Although coyotes are particularly plentiful in the Southwest, they exist all over the country and are very smart.
On the bright side, hubbies band played over the weekend and sounded great. Our daughter came for the day to hear the band and brought her new boyfriend. Surprise of surprises, we both like him. (If you knew our daughter's dating history you'd understand that one). It was great to see her except for the dark circles that have reappeared under her eyes. Twelve hours of sleep per school week doesn't count as rest.
I'm off to run my morning errands as the fur people are out of food and I still have a box of campaign signs in my back seat that need a home. Have a great day!
