There is not much happening here right now. I am kind of on a down swing as far as my mental health is concerned and I just don't feel like doing much of anything.
Still, there are puppies to be fed, watered and played with. They are way more active now and are actually interacting with us. They come running when one of us calls 'puppies' at dinner or playtime. Mind you, so does Bumble. He has been acting out recently - chewing on shoes and peeing on the bathroom floor. I keep reminding myself that he probably has middle child syndrome and this too shall pass.
Speaking of middle child - Kayla turns 18 on Friday.
EIGHTEEN!
This is mind blowing.
Jessica went to see her doctor today and she is weighing in at a whopping 113 lbs. She looks great and is healthier than ever. Maybe it has something to do with her extended grounding and the subsequent family time that she was exposed to? I don't really know and I don't even care, for that matter. She has started hanging out with some different kids at school and the change has been noticeable even in the past couple of weeks.
KC and I watched Blindness on Friday evening. (We were too cheap -errr, broke to hit the theatre). I will just say this - Don't bother. It should have been called Lameness.
Just saying.

Tomorrow Shawn and I are off the OHIP office (the place that issues health cards to all Canadians, the card that allows you free access to health care) to try and get his mess straightened out. We were told that someone else had been issued a card in his name and that they would not be able to issue a card to Shawn.
That is unacceptable to us and tomorrow we are finally going to deal with the problem. Well, this is the government, so we'll see how it all turns out. All I know is that somebody better help us with this.
So, that's it.
Guess I better hit the sack. Ruby has been barking at night for her puppies and it has been well over a week since I have had a decent nights rest. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that tonight is my night.

I hope you get some rest and that the card thing is easily straightened out.

Those puppies get cuter every day. I'm sure once they have all found good homes that Bumble and Ruby will get back to normal.
