I've been so busy

the past two weeks that I haven't even taken the time to update my blog. 

Elsa had her puppies on July 27.  One male and four females.  All available for sale.  Pick up will be around September 14. 

My parents came in for granddaughter Lilly's birthday party on August 4.  She turned two on July 31.  Nice party, super hot weather.  I took lots of pictures and the kids had a pool party!

Granddaughters Jassmine and Dixie stayed overnight because Daddy had to work. Pappy got moved to the couch and he was not happy.

I've been sewing a lot.  Made two bubble romper outfits for Lilly and one for Dixie.  Made a skirt for my mom.  It needs hemmed and the waist needs taken in a little. 

I have not been sleeping good.  I can't sleep at night and find myself exhausted and wanting to nap during the day but I'm forcing myself to stay awake. 

On Tuesday I took Leja to the vet to get her AKC number tattooed on her inner right thigh.  We do this for all our GSPs in case they ever get lost.  My two year old Kodak ESP 6150 printer / fax / scanner broke so I went to replace it with another Kodak ESP which I bought at Walmart.  I consider myself somewhat technical minded and computer literate but after four hours of trying to get the daRn thing to set up and, after going through the online error message fixes at Kodak and speaking with a technician, I decided it best to just take back to Walmart.  And, God bless them, they honored my receipt and took it off my hands and totally refunded all my money. 

On Wednesday, the bossman said he would buy me a new printer so I took him up on the offer.  I shopped online at Office Max.  I was looking for another Kodak but they no longer sell them.  I don't have any experience with HP or Epson and the only Canon I ever had was a dot matrix printer back in 1998.  :)  I did have two Lexmarks but they didn't last past a year and I do use my printer every day.  The one we have at the office is a Brother all in one and we've had it for over six years.  All we've ever replaced, fingers crossed, are cartridges so I ordered one of those.  It actually comes with a standard three year warranty which just tickles me to no end! So here I was with two brand new Kodak cartridges and two used very sparingly. I ended up selling them on eBay. Yay! 

I had a lot of errands to do yesterday and then worked from home yesterday and all this morning.  I'm ready for a break.  It's noon so breakfast would be nice.
