I’m sitting here in my living room just reveling in an excellent weekend that was just exactly what I have been needing and not at all what we had planned for the weekend. This weekend had plans to go places and do things with fantastic folks but sadly due to unforeseen circumstances the plans fell through. What came out of that though was a beautiful weekend spent at home relaxing and getting some projects done.
As I’m sure you can tell by how quiet the blog has been that things are super busy over here. This weekend was the first weekend in a long time where I finally felt like I caught up. We ran errands, cleaned, and built some amazing book shelves for our living room. Tom can now be called Tom “the tool man Taylor”. Seriously, he amazed me with his skills! Then we ended the weekend with sunday funday dinner with some great friends and the oscars. All of this left me thinking that sometimes the unexpected plans are exactly what you need. I was super bummed that our original plans didn't work out but we had a beautiful unexpected weekend.
This weekend was also the first weekend where our very sweet puppy was able to go to puppy daycare on a saturday (aka super tired and we got to run errands). It is also the first weekend where he made stellar progress in potty training. This little guy is amazing but I have to tell anyone looking to get a puppy, It. Is. Work. Its so beyond worth it but think about it as bringing home an infant but no maternity leave! We just hit the 3 month mark with him and it is such a big change from when we got him at eight weeks. He now knows how to sit, lay down, leave it, and go potty outside. Unless he is super excited and then all bets are off! Seriously, we are all learning each other. Ganon is learning what we expect/want of him and we are learning what he needs and his signals. We are also learning when he is crying for a reason and when he just wants a biscuit. All of this is to say, I’m still here and am hoping to start getting more posts up now that things are starting to calm a bit on the home front. So Stay tuned and if you’re going through a crazy busy time right now, hang in there, it’s going to get better! And if you are potty training a puppy, I feel ya, and go buy some more paper towels!
