Three Left Feet


Between Harley and me, we have 3 good left feet and not much else. Would you believe that my dog tore her ACL and is having surgery today?! I really can't imagine what else could go wrong this year, but I'm nervous to even think of the possibilities...so I won't. Last May, Jack had abdominal surgery, I've had 2 surgeries since January, and now Harley is having leg surgery. If I were Ryan I would seriously RUN (carefully though, don't fall!) as far from here as possible! Evidently Harley has had a "luxating patella" (a kneecap that moves in and out of place) her whole life, and over time it has torn her ACL. So, it wasn't like she had a major accident that caused it. She was literally sitting in my brother's lap one minute, hopped down, and then couldn't put weight on her back right leg. Since I can't drive or carry my dog for that matter, and Ryan is at work because we can't afford for him to take any more time off, Molly (Thank You!!!) came out and took us to the vet this morning. Jack was really happy that Molly came because she offered to bring him along for the ride, which he wouldn't have gotten if it had been me driving. :-) I'm waiting to hear from the vet, but I'm sure everything will be fine. She's my baby though, so I think it'll be harder on me than it is on her. I hate that she's going to have to be in a crate all week, and I can't do anything to help her. I guess we'll go through physical therapy together...she can be my workout buddy. Look at that precious face!!






On a totally different note, I was complaining about not having anything to do while stuck at home, so Brad and Kendall gave me a project to keep me busy this weekend. They wanted me to do something for my neice's room. She'll be here before we know it! They didn't give me really any guidelines...just that they wanted her name or intials somewhere in the room. I decided to do her name and initials, and I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. Some of the patterns match her paisley/striped/polka dotted bedding, so I think it will look really cute all together. Anyway...here's what I came up with. The "L" is my favorite.

Sarah! Oh my goodness, you have had a run of bad luck lately. They come in threes...so hopefully, you will things on the up and up from here. Hadley's room art is so incredibly cute. You have to be one of the most creative ladies I know. Hadley is lucky to have a wonderful aunt like you! Best of luck!!

Poor Harley, I sure hope she is feeling better. And the letters are so precious. I bet Kendall loves them. I still have the card you made Camryn, it's so cute! I made some letters for Camryn's room last week as well, but I just traced them, cut them out and mod podged them. Nothing like this. You are so talented. Love it!
