Roxie has always been such a sweet, loving, little dog, but after the last two nights, we are about ready to give her away. She has always slept with us since she was a puppy and never has had an accident until Monday night AND Tuesday night. She peed the bed and in the middle of the night we had to remove all the bedding and the mattress pad and remake the bed. The mattress pad is so big that Mike had to take it down to the laundromat to wash and dry it (both days). Today we took her to the vet and she may have a bladder infection. The vet gave her some pills, in hopes that they would help, but let me tell you, tonight she is sleeping in a dog crate.
Poor Roxie

but I did get a pedicure while we were in the valley, so all is not bad.

Another Monday

Two calls to work today, but I choose to play bridge instead. I play bridge with the nicest ladies. I didn't win today, but a bad day at bridge is just about better than a good day at anything else, except family. I had a Cabin in the Park meeting tonight.
I work tomorrow for a fifth grade teacher, and then pinochle tomorrow night.

We had a very nice Easter day today. Scott and I went to church breakfast and then to church. Dinner was planned for 2:30, because Kathy had to work until two. Between church and dinner I hid the Easter eggs and got dinner ready. We had ham, scalloped potatoes, asparagus with white sauce, corn, salad, and hot cross buns.
We ate at 2:30 and then we were ready for the Easter egg hunt. Kendall was the youngest one here, but my boys really get into the hunt. There were 200 eggs filled with candy and money. It had started raining, but that didn't dampen any one's spirits.
After everyone left I went upstairs to my computer room and found an Easter egg by my computer. "How did that get there," I asked myself. I opened it up and there was a $10 bill inside. I looked around for more, and I found 6 egg total with $50 bucks total. WOW!!! What a nice Easter surprise.
Along with the Easter eggs I have little goodies hidden. I got everything ready on Saturday. I'm ready to load the eggs.
Here is our granddaughter, Jennifer, and Dawson.

Happy Easter
I worked three days this week. On Wednesday I subbed for the high school special education teacher. On Tuesday, I subbed for the high school science teacher in the morning, and the history teacher in the afternoon. On Friday I subbed for the fifth grade teacher. It was a good week.
After work on Friday we headed to town to do the Easter dinner and Easter egg hunting shopping. We have a huge Easter egg hunt, so I have to be ready. The big kids get a kick out of it, even more that the little kids do. We won't have any little kids here, except for our great grandchild. Kendall is the next youngest and she is 14.
We are certainly NOT having Easter weather. I hope the snow goes away and the sun comes out for a little while tomorrow.

Happy Easter to you all
