Caring (or crushing?) for the Elderly

Carter went to daycare yesterday and developed a crush on an older woman...a Bishon Frise. She apparently spends most of her time at daycare resting in a chair, to which Carter climbs up in and lays next to her in.

Please, no mouse in the house!

So tonight as I was making dinner my neighbor, Meredith, knocked on my door and told me that when her parents' dog was peeing on a bush in my yard she noticed a small, dead mouse.
Let me clarify a few things-
1- Yes, my neighbor is also named Meredith, and she also happens to be a Guidance Counselor at the High School in the same district as me. She also has a 14 year old Schnauzer named Demi, that Carter about dies to get to.
2- Yes, I did say that her parents' dog was peeing on a bush in my lawn...thats the suburbs for ya- close living quarters!
3- I now have to shovel up this dead mouse with a snow shovel so little Carter doesn't eat it! Snow shovel you ask? Well, I am still working at building up my lawn gear so I gotta do what I gotta do! I've never shoveled a rodent before. I know youre all surprised by this.
4- Meredith also shared that she has had a few mice in her basement. This does not make me happy. I am not afraid of mice, but I certainly don't want to share my house with them. Nor do I want to kill them. Lets keep our fingers crossed that the little mice stay outside, ok?

Well, thats my homeowner update for today. I hope to have some "before and after" pics to post this weekend.

1 Week Down...

Well, we made it through the 1st week of school. "We" meaning Carter and I. Carter is back to spending days in his crate while I am at work, and I am back to dealing with 506 K-5 students! The kids were excited to be back, and I was glad to see them. I got many hugs and lots of questions about my summer, my wardrobe, and Carter. It's very funny the things kids ask/are interested in. I was also glad to see my co-workers on Tuesday, our 1st day back as a staff.

Lots of fun, fall plans in the upcoming weeks. I love fall, when you get to wear jeans and blazers and cute boots! Enjoy!

Time Flies When You're....PAINTING!

Yes, I realize it has been over a month since the last post. The closing on the house was August 6th and it has been non-stop since then! I will have some before and after pictures to post soon...I hope.

Had a housewarming/Carter's 1st bday party on Sunday...Thanks for all of the gifts not only for the house but for Carter too!

I will try to be better about posting...
