Consider the Lilies..: Bunch of stuff..

Bunch of stuff..

I think everything is starting to go back to normal now.
Clay goes back to work today but it's possible this will be his last hitch in Africa, which is good because he's pretty sick of it!
Russia is finally happening, and it's rotation so we don't have to move.  He'll have an apartment there instead of a room in a staff house and he will be working under Lindsay again.  Lindsay is the guy that created the position for Clay in Angola.  They have worked together in 3 other countries and have become good friends.  It will be nice for him to be working under a guy he can trust again.
Plus he will be working somewhere I would actually like to visit :)

So.
The floors are done, the dumpster has been filled and taken away, the garden is planted and the trees are trimmed.  It's been a busy few weeks!
We had the puppies neutered.  I really didn't want to, but Gunner kept lifting his leg on Sky's closet and he was starting to bully the cat and Buster so we just decided to get it over with.  His surgery went well and he is recovering quickly.  
They sent him home with a cone but that didn't go over well.  He freaked out so bad I was afraid he would tear out his stitches so we got him a Zen Collar.  Much better!

Then we took Keisel in.  Things didn't go as well for him.  The poor baby.
One of his "boys" was so far up into his abdominal cavity that they had to perform major surgery to get it out, so now instead of just one small one inch incision, he has three; two one inch and one six inch with 10 staples and his whole belly is bruised.
Let me tell you..  Keeping two Australian shepherd puppies calm is literally impossible.
They both were prescribed sedatives, but the sedatives they gave Keisel are so strong that he couldn't even lift his head off the bed and he had to be carried outside and then held up so he could go potty, so we have decided to only give him a sedative at night and just give Gunner the ones that our vet prescribed him.  His don't do much, but they do calm him down a little so we are sort of hoping that if he's not super hyper, Keisel won't be either.  It's sort of working.
Sort of.
At least right at this moment..

Mother's Day was awesome like always.
Clay and Sky always do pretty great on Mother's Day.
Sky got me another rosebush and planted it in the back yard (the dogs attacked the first one). so she put a fence around this one.
And brought Sushi home for dinner.  Best daughter ever!

Clay got me a ring with Sky's birthstones
And some of my favorite perfume (well one of my favorites)

And he brought up the patio furniture from under the deck, bought a new cushion for the lounge chair,
 bought some outdoor candles for the tables and even put up an awning so I can sit outside and still be out of the sun.

I think he's a pretty OK guy..
(Gunner keeps photobombing my pictures).

Sky wasn't completely happy with her haircut so she went back and had more cut off..  I absolutely LOVE it now.

She starts the day shift again today so instead of working 2 pm until 12:30-1:00 am, she goes in at 6:00 am.  
They opened a new department so she will be the assistant manager of that department as well as the lead welder.

I guess I've covered everything.
Oh wait!  This stuff.
The best hand cream I have ever used.  For reals!  It's pretty pricey for such a little bottle, but I use way less of it than any other brand and I only have to put it in twice a day.  
I normally use a lot of hand lotion..  I'm over 40, and if you're over 40 you know how your skin gets drier more often.  
So this stuff is bomb-diggity.
It's made by the same company that makes LipSense.  *shocker huh?*
Turns out they make a lot of stuff and so far everything I have tried is AWESOME..
Seriously.  Awesome. 
I don't sell it.  Honestly!  Even though it sounds like I do.  I don't even get a discount for plugging it so much.  It's just really good stuff..

Ok, that's all.  
Happy Monday!
