It's Always Interesting...

Things are never really dull at our house. With three little girls and a dog, we seem to always have some chaotic adventure going on. We're in the middle of one right now...

Last night, we were all outside with our neighbors (minus our dog) talking a bit before dinner. As our kids were playing with the other kids on our street and one of our neighbor's dog, Ania started crying. Dani was closest and bent down to see blood.

She called me over and we thought the dog had bit her figure because we could see a bunch of blood covering it. She was hysterical and shocked over the incident.

It wasn't until we got home and under the light that we could see two little teeth marks on her upper lip. Apparently, the little dog bit her on the lip when she bent over and my oldest fell down, scraping her finger on the street.

Well, once blood is drawn, there really isn't much you can do to just work things out between least that's what we've come to find out. We contacted our doctor and found out that we had to report the incident to Animal Control. They came out this afternoon and checked on everything and told us they didn't really care how it affected neighborly relations, they were required by law, both state and county, to take the dog and quarentene it for 10 days to make sure it didn't have rabies.

It's kinda like welcome to the neighborhood. :) On the one hand, we feel bad for our neighbors and really didn't to make a big deal out of it. I'm just glad that our girls got to learn the incredibly important lesson that you can't play with other dogs because you just don't know what they will do from a little dog, so the damage is minimal.

On the other hand, this is the course that must be taken. Dogs that snap at people must be under complete control by their owners. I'm still not completely sure why we have dogs in our neighborhood that are allowed to run around without a leash every day. To me, that's just asking for trouble.

Anyway, we are continuing to keep things interesting...

Article about TV and Kids

For the parents who read my blog, I thought you might like to read this article about how watching TV affects children's sleeping habits.

I guess I'm going to have to stop letting my girls watch The Unit, Criminal Minds, and Big Brother-Til Death Do Us Part before bedtime now. :)

Wanna Get Away?

Where's Southwest Airlines when you need them?

This has to be a REALLY bad day for this guy.

So, what's the worst fall you've ever taken?

Emerging From The Pit

My wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day early this year. My mother-in-law was in town for a few days and wanted to take care of our girls while we went on a we went!

We had a blast. We were given a dinner for two to the nicest steak house in town so we went there. I had a great salad, amazing Merlot Tenderloin and baked potato, followed by an incredible 8 layer chocolate malt cake. The margarita was pretty good too. :)

Anyway, we enjoyed getting to eat in some peace and just talk without much interruption. When we got home, I got our youngest and helped her get to sleep and then went to bed.

I woke up at 5:00 am with a terrible stomach ache, that stayed with me for just over 24 hours. I was in the bathroom all day and was given the privilege of tasting the dinner again, and again. It wasn't nearly as good after the first time around.

After three days, I feel like I'm able to manage through the day without feeling sick. I'm sure you probably didn't want to read about all of these details of my past few days but I just felt like sharing my adventures with you.

Happy Valentine's Day!

If You're My Friend...I Most Likely Wouldn't Eat You


I was checking out YSMARKO's blog this morning and he displayed the results of the cannibalism test. So, of course I had to see what it said about me.

What about you? Take the test and let me know!
