What about a little Fannie Flagg reference for the morning? It's a beautiful day in the Carolina's. The sun is out, the temperature is a comfortable cool. It's time to wake up, smell the sweet aroma of the outdoors and...what's that smell??? Yeah, that's Rachi. He apparently had gastrointestinal distress last night and that's what we woke up to. 7 freakin AM in the morning and the husky has crapped his kennel. Fortunately in the garage. Yes ladies and gentleman, my first blog post is about dog poop.
Well, not totally. Rachi did have gastro issues and is embarrassed by it. Sawyer, the black lab who is usually responsible for gastro offense, was not pleased with the smells radiating from his brother's kennel. The doxies, Tiki and Pachelbel were spared. They kennel in the laundry room at night. We are a family with four dogs. Drazil was happy for the morning disruption. She is a Mali Uromastyx lizard that likes to be up and about early and sleep in from late afternoon on. Drazil was glad to get her salad earlier than our usual late morning weekend rise. Yoshi, the bunny, doesn't care either way. I sear, there are times she is completely nocturnal, tossing her bowl down the ramp and incessantly licking her water thingy. I'm rather certain that is the technical term for it. My apologies for using jargon.
To complete the family introductions I am married to Mr. MckTchr. Between us there are five kids. Kid1, Kid2, Skid1, Skid2, and Skid3. Ages 18, 15, 21, 16, and 12.
I've been blogging for years. I think I started in 2003 and typed out my thoughts trying to stay sane while in grad school. It sort of worked. After a while it grew tedious. In 2009, or 10...sometime...I toyed with the idea of picking it back up. Like so many toys we played with as children the interest came and went. I'm in a new stage of life now and think it is time to pick up the toy again. Maybe I will have much to say, maybe not. I'm not going to commit to a post each day, but I'm going to start this journey and see where it goes. Maybe I will have something to say...or nah. In the meantime...
Live life. Give joy. Be at peace.
