Random Updates

1. The monkey at Doggy Camp is a Capuchin. Very cute, but a little scary at the same time. It makes a lot of noise rattling around inside its enclosure. I'm also told that it lures the dogs over to its enclosure by offering them "monkey chow" and then when they get close, it takes their collars off and hides them in its house. Cheeky monkey! Butter stayed at Camp while I was out of town and the lady said she did really well. So I pretty much can already tell the lady is a liar. :)

2. Mom's surgery went well. She's at home now and is receiving home visits from nurses and physical therapists (because they said she oughta go to rehab, but she said NO, NO, NO.) My poor daddy...pray for him. She's also dealing with bouts of nausea and some fever. Not sure what that's all about, but I'm sure it's not pleasant. The good news is that her pain is much less than before she had the surgery.

3. I got to spend a little time with my great-nephew when I was down there and I just get crazier and crazier about him. I went to his daycare's Easter party and watched him for a little bit, then we checked him out of daycare and took him up to see my mom. That kid sat in my lap and listened to me read an entire children's book to him one and 1/2 times. He's 20 months old. I could not be more proud.

4. What else? We've got clients in town (again) this week, so we've been spending a lot of "team building" time with them. It's a little exhausting being in meetings so much (and devoting our lunch hours and our after hours time to entertaining them), but it's good to get to know them a little better.

It's 8:46 and I'm exhausted. I think I'm going to play a little game of Halo and then call it a night.
