Poor Little Fella

This weekend was drill weekend. Here's the thing, do I miss my husband when he is gone? Yes. Do I sit around and whine about it? No. Do I make the most of the time while he is gone? Yes. Do I somewhat enjoy a little alone time? You bet I do. Next month he has to go to Wisconsin for some kind of training for two weeks.

I got a ton of stuff done this weekend. Laundry, vacuuming, deep cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms, napping, working on my tan, pulling weeds, watering my bushes and plants, playing with the pups.

Speaking of pups, Ozzy had diarrhea this weekend. It started Saturday and I made sure that he was eating and drinking so he wouldn't get dehydrated. He was still active all weekend and didn't act sick. Without going into too many details, I'll tell you that by last night I was beginning to be concerned.

This morning I took him to the vet. He has an inflamed colon, which I guess is quite common in little dogs. I got horse sized pills I have to give him and a syringe full of liquid for a couple days. I'm hoping if I tell him the pills are snacks that he will eat them but I probably won't get that lucky. Poor little fella. I hope it stops soon.

Hope you all have a good week!

I love my alone time every once in a while! Sadly, the only alone time I've had in the past few weeks is in the shower....and I've been making them SUPER long!

Hope your pup is better SOON!

Aww...I hope your puppy is feeling better soon.

This weekend is David's drill weekend, but it's the same weekend that I have class. I plan on getting my apartment clean, organized, and all that stuff. It desperately needs it!

Us woman got to keep everything flowing whether then men are home or not! I get most stuff done on Mondays and Tuesdays while my hubs is gone and then the rest of the week I can take it easy!

Poor pup! It gets rather interesting when you try and trick dogs into eating pills ... they're not very good about it.

I do look forward to drill weekends. They're my weekends and I love that I get to do whatever I want!

Poor puppy. Try cooked hamburger and rice. That's what I give my dogs when they have diarrhea. My vet always tells us to feed them that when they are sick even if he also gives them medicine.

I love my time alone. Some other spouses I know freak out if their husband is gone for a few days but I'm all, "Yay, bed to myself!"

I clicked on the Ozzy label, and at first thought the "Godfather of Heavy Metal" had the squirts !
