Today is shaping up to be a better day already, although we are still missing Dad & Precious like crazy. Precious is Dad's dog, pictured above. Grace loves this dog more than she loves our dog Archie. It's no secret, Grace says it everyday since she laid eyes on Precious 10 days ago.

So far today, I slept in until 9am! Denny is a little under the weather with a cough and sore throat (passed on with love from Grace who just got over the same thing.) When he isn't 100%, he likes to sleep in, and mama likes to sleep in, so I make out from his sufferings.

However, before you assume I am a lazy, bad mom, let me tell you how last night went.

Bob and I went up to bed around 10pm and watched TV until midnight. Then the games began. As soon as I turned off the TV and closed my eyes for a good nights sleep, things got goofy.

The dog began breathing so hard it was impossible to fall asleep.

Then Archie was barking to be let outside.

Then Archie would not come back inside.

Then Grace wakes up and wants to know why Archie keeps waking her up.

Then Denny has a coughing attack and needs more ice water to cool his throat.

Archie starts panting again, I look at the clock and it's 3:30am.

Bob was the one who was taking care of the majority of this crap. I think I only got out of bed to get Archie back in the house & put G back to bed once. So although I got to sleep in, he didn't and is probably having a miserable day toady as I am sitting here refreshed, on my 3rd cup of coffee.

Anyway, the sun is actually out and it's 45 degrees. That is most likely what is making me smile right now. That and the goofy dance that Denny is doing while I type this.

We are dealing with an extremely loud barking dog next door to our house that is keeping us up. We fear opening the windows in the summer. So we feel your pain!

Yesterday was so awesome, I could've ran around naked.

Sounds like a rough night. But still, 9am! I dream of such a lie in.

That's a fantastic photo too.
