2 Kids gone, 7 dogs left!!!
« on: January 03, 2006, 01:36:30 pm »
Oh my, My daughter moved out and will not take her 2 pits until she has a fenced in yard. She moved in with a boyfriend and wants to make sure it will last before she puts the money into a good fence. (she's 26)
My youngest son went back to school, Yeah!! but did not own a dog. I told him he could pick one out to take but he declined. darn.
My oldest son is still looking for a house, his 3 dogs have taken over my house.  But the good news is that his little pit quit hurting the other dogs, He has to wear a muzzel and hates to be seperated from the pack. Oh yeah, and his cat got out and got hurt some how. Poor thing broke a tooth and scratched up face. I would never have an indoor-outdoor cat, but he does.
I am soo ready to go back to work, this house is crazy!! the house work alone is a full time job. Can't keep the floors clean, I gave up on the furniture and will just buy more after he moves out. But I am feeling much better now so I guess there is no excuse not to clean. Just had to jump on and say HI to everyone.  And ask for prayers that he finds a house SOON

I think I would take 2 times as many dogs over teenage to adult children.  you are a very patient person.
Thanks,

Emily and 1 husband, 1 boy, 1 on the way, and 4 crazy dogs

I forgot to add, and this is funny-- Do you remember that he brought his fish too? 3 big fish and one died? Being very tired when it happened I told him to flush it and it clogged up the toilet real bad. Well for Christmas be bought and installed a new toilet!! yep that was my Christmas preseant. a new toilet. Only my kid would think of that.

Glad you checked in Terry. We'll be praying for you. I wish your daughter would have taken her dogs, though. They are a part of her. It's hard on the boyfriend/future hubby to get her in scheduled segments... but seems those young adults see things differently and do what they want sometimes, just part of growing and learning I guess.

You deserve a big star for patience! All those fur babies!

Hang in there and keep us posted.

No.  That's not true.   

My dad gave my grandmother new toilets in both the upstairs bath and the downstairs half bath for Christmas a couple of years before she passed.  I even helped install them!  ;D
