He Works Hard For His Money. (LilZ replies, “What Money?”) 35

He Works Hard For His Money. (LilZ replies, “What Money?”)

This picture is a perfect example as to why I don’t care that LilZ doesn’t do diapers. I always tell people that, and then follow up with, “But he does everything else, so I don’t complain.” And this picture? Is an example of the “everything else” he does. I would much rather be the one changing diapers if he’s the one carrying his sister on his shoulders while she screams bloody murder in his ears. A nurse one time went on this diatribe to him about how all of her kids did diapers. Even the young ones. Why doesn’t he...

Moving Forward.

Thanks to all of you for your wonderful comments and sympathies yesterday. MrZ stayed home all day and said he refreshed the comments of that post about once an hour to read what everyone was saying. They meant more to both of us than you can possibly know. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Cisco went peacefully and we consider ourselves blessed to have had 10 great years with him. Now. Enough with the tears! Let’s move on to things that make us smile like 3-year olds with first-time bangs and first-time painted fingernails! The bangs were not...

Allow me this stage to honor one of my best friends.

Cisco at a healthier time “Is he scared?” That has always been the question asked by people who first meet Cisco. We always say the same thing, “No. He just has a nervous condition.” From an early age Cisco started getting the shakes. It is one of the things that always made people fall in love with him because you couldn’t help but want to snuggle with him to make him feel safe, even after you were told he wasn’t scared. He is also the only dog we have that doesn’t insist upon jumping on everyone that walks in our...

Automatic Smile Inducer

I took both kids to the doctor today. AndyZ because he was running a fever (turned out to be an ear infection) and NikkiZ because she needed a note to go back to school since she’s had a few instances of diarrhea in the last week. On the way back from the doctor, I called two people at work to explain that I got her note, I was taking her to school, and I’d be in shortly. After I got off the phone, NikkiZ took the doctor’s note while we were driving and put it to her ear like it...

Send Beer.

Things going on in my life right now keeping me from posting a respectable blog entry: Spending my last weekend with Cisco. And deciding today would be a good time to watch Ghost Whisperer, which made me cry my eyes out while hold Cisco. Sweetie and her never-ending need to poop on my carpets. My son and his 103 degree fever for going more than 24 hours now. Which is not fun. In case you were wondering. My lack of sleep due to the above items which is making me highly emotional on top of being emotional because of those...
