Catching Up a Bit...

Little Brother called, just to check on me, since I’d not posted in a while. So, I thought I’d better catch up! By the way, follow the link, and read up on his exciting happening this week when a drunk hit his son’s parked car – in his driveway!

Here’s what’s been happening in the Sounding Forth house.

MLH is getting better – he finally went to work, but he’s trying to take it easy out there. He has a gastroenterologist appointment next Tuesday. Thanks for all your prayers – please don’t stop!

I’ve been extremely busy at work, but it’s all good. I’m still loving it!

Elder Son came in for the night, and it was good to see him. He played with Doug Moreland and Matt Skinner at the Hog Pit, then went to Alpine and on to Austin with them. His truck is still here, so that means we’ll see him again soon…and we’re looking forward to that!

Younger Son moved out into an apartment, and his room was immediately filled by our little friend Sarah, who moved in from the Midland College dorm for the summer. She’s been a joy thus far – we’ve never had a munchkin of the female persuasion hang out at our house and we’re enjoying it. Sarah starts her first job ever at Best Buy this weekend, so that will mark a milestone for her. Sarah is the daughter of one of my childhood friends, and was raised wayyyy out in the country, so working a summer job wasn’t feasible. She’s agreed to dogsit for us, when we’re traveling, so that’s a plus. And, speaking of kids of the doggie kind…

Zack the Wonder Dog is about to have his world rocked once again, as Zoie the Wonder Pup has graduated from her puppy hunting training. Though Zack grieved for about a week when Zoie left, it will be interesting to see how they reacquaint themselves. All reports from Zoie’s trainers are excellent, so that long trip to Kansas just may have been worth it! We’re to pick her up on Monday on our way back from somewhere.

Somewhere, you say? Yup. MLH and I are going somewhere, we don’t really have a plan. We’re just going to get in the truck and go – get out of here for the weekend. Alone. Woohoo!! Well, at least until we go pick up the Zoie-monga.

So, it will be a bit before I post again. Meanwhile, blog amongst yourselves and have a blessed Memorial Day weekend!

Glad to hear all is getting better--and that Zoie is coming home! If you make it North to Kansas. come on up-we would love to have visitors!

PS I never did get the pictures of Zoie, but I have my email fixed now.
Pepsi and Sierra say HI to Zack. They are a little bored since hunting is over for the summer!

Hey! I've been wondering about you. Knew you had a whole of stuff going on though.

Congratulations to Zoie on her graduation. My nephew graduated high school last night. Now that silly boy is off to the marines. I can't believe he went and enlisted. But still....I'm proud of him :)

Have a fun weekend!

Karen said...

Go, Zoie, go!

Hope you and the hubs have a terrific time together. Maybe it'll help him feel better, too.

Pam said...

I was really worried about you guys...I needed my sounding forth fix! Have a great time, somewhere!

Hi, Janie! Glad to hear things are heading back to normality. I've sent you a couple of e-mails about the Thompsons but don't know if you got them or not. I know you've been consumed with getting your hubby back on his feet. If you haven't read or heard, you can catch up at

Have a great Memorial Day! Glad to hear things have settled down a bit.

Janie said...

You, too, Snooty! You're making me laugh with your alien stories...

Snooty Primadona said...

Mr. Snooty made me clean up the stories, lol. He said I was being too mean. Whatever.

Janie said...

Awwww, I dunno 'bout that. Real, maybe...

doozie said...

Happy MD to you as well. I hope that when you go somewhere there are plenty of places to stop for urinating. That is always a big concern of mine. If things don't work out, I will just stop in the middle of the road. Yes, I'm actually talking about bodily functions on your blog

Janie said...

Doozie - you are such a hoot! Out here in the sticks, there are plenty of places to stop and do the obligatory bodily functions. Someday, I'll write a story about how utilizing the back bumper of a Yukon XL as a "lean-to", as it were, helps...ummm...totally void the bladder.

heh.

What was the diagnosis and treatment? - I sort of got lost after the hospital and did not hear a definitive you deserve a great relaxing time all of you I'd like to see the Zoie Zack reunion hahaah

Janie said...

Well, Sandy, we have a doctor's (gastroenterologist) appt tomorrow afternoon, so I guess we'll know more soon. MLH's preliminary diagnosis they gave him at the emergency room is diverticulitis.
