My original intention with this blog was to document my world through a daily photo and some of my thoughts. Great intention, but unfortunately the reality is that I have a full-time, intense job, three children, and a husband who works crazy hours which results in me being a "single" mom much of the time. As reality set it, I realized that a daily update was just NOT going to happen. Despite that, I do want to keep this updated....so rather than 365 days perhaps I should shoot for 182 days. :~) He he he...
I'm off for the month of July. Yeah! One of the perks of working in the school system, but I will be spending the month with my mom and children. We will be "traveling" and hanging out, but hopefully I'll be more faithful with updating. For those of you who are reading, thanks. For those of you who aren't...you don't know what you are missing.
Today's picture is of my mother-in-law and my super-pup Esme. Perhaps not a very interesting picture, but here's the back story. My in-laws came to stay with us for 6 months (that's another story). They live in India so when they come for a visit, they come for a LONG visit. This was their 4th visit. Before they came, the thing that they were most concerned about was living with a dog. They have NEVER known a dog, liked a dog, or had any experiences with a dog so they were verrrrry worried. By the end of their visit (when this picture was taken), my MIL was in love with super-pup Esme and was probably sadder about leaving her than she was about leaving us. MIL made a bed for Esme, took pictures with and of Esme, hand fed Esme and generally fell in love with Esme. It was very sweet. Ah...the power of a dog! Perhaps international relations experts should take this into account when having high-level negotiations. If it meant peace in the middle east, I would be willing to loan Esme out for a day or two. Esme certainly broke down international barriers in our house.
Have a good day!
