January - What the heck is going on?

So far this month has been wild. Last week my car was rear ended with $5000 in damage. Insurance is paying, and it is getting fixed, but the accident left me feeling very sore, and apprehensive about driving the rental car provided to me. A young guy going too fast in winter weather.

This week...a flood.

You are thinking... right MB a flood in January? Yep a flood left me with a few wonderful impromptu days off of school. The building that all of my classes are held in except for one, was flooded on Tuesday morning by a high pressure pipe bursting.


Right now we are scheduled to be back on Monday morning. Judging from what I've heard regarding the damage, I hope that they can actually get things completed by then. The days off have been nice but everything is so jammed in that it really makes for some scheduling challenges.

The girls were happy with this new development as it meant more time with them.

We did some of this;

then I caught up and got ahead on some reading. Mylee supervised.

After that we enjoyed a trip to our local doggy store Mutt Life where the girls enjoyed some socializing and shopping. Since it has been so cold outside I think they had a major case of cabin fever.

One of Zo's favourite things to do is play frisbee in the backyard. After losing her Chuck IT flying squirrel in the snow we were on the hunt to try something new.

We picked out a Zisc from Westpaw Design. The small sized one and tried to wait for a day to take it outside. That didn't last long as we ripped into it later that night, and did something bad... played with it in the house.

As you can tell by the video Zo adores it. It is a great size for her, and she has a very easy time of picking it up and bringing it back. Much more appropriate than her huge flying squirrel that is way too big for her but she loves so much.

We have since taken it outside yesterday and Zo was equally thrilled with it out there. I'm looking forward to trying more of their products.

Is it February yet?


  1. We are so sorry about your accident. Being hit from behind or being hit anyway by somebody not paying attention is a bad thing to go through. We don't like to drive anymore because of crazy drivers on the road. They run you off and come flying up behind you like they want to just run right over you. It's scary these days. We are waiting for spring. This winter has gone on long enough! Your dogs are so adorable!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  2. That video is so cute. She looks so much like Jasper when he plays ball. They get so excited don't they? Love your new header too, very appropriate for your winter cold. Hope you don't get any repurcussions of the accident.

  3. Sounds like a crazy month! Glad you're okay! At least it it gave you more snuggle time!:))

  4. Taken me a while to track you down, now I have. My nose isn't quite what it was. :-)
    lots of love AMIE SOTO BLOSSOM X X X
