Yep, I Did It Again

I committed to another project!  Something I probably don't have time for (but plan to make time for) but something I think I'll really grow from and treasure.  I've decided to do a Project 365 - which means taking and posting a photo a day.  I started up a new blog dedicated to this new project and it's called 365 Rays of Sunshine and I would love it if you stopped by to visit or added it to your blog reader.

As a little teaser, I just posted my entry there for the most recent I Heart Faces photo contest "Best Face of 2010" and I guarantee you'll enjoy it!  Head on over now to to see a photo I LOVE (although I could never choose just ONE photo as a favorite)!

On another note, I left the house at 5:45 this morning for a consulting job, returned at 5 pm tonight and left abruptly about 40 minutes later not to return home until after the kids were in bed around 9pm and boy am I thankful I don't work full-time and I'm able to stay home with the kids!  While it was nice being a professional again for a little while today, I had to keep myself from pulling out my cell phone every 10 minutes to see what was going on at home!  I missed the kids and cannot wait to hug and kiss them first thing tomorrow morning.

If you're wondering why I had to leave abruptly, take a look at this gaping hole Ben received in his shoulder tonight when another dog ran out from his garage and attacked Ben while Daddy and he were running.  Yep, not good.  It doesn't really look like it here but it was at least the size of a half dollar and was super deep.  The vet just called about 10:15 tonight and said Ben was doing fine after surgery but that the bite really pulled the skin away from his body and left a big pocket between skin and body.  We'll pick him up tomorrow - what a trooper he was the vet techs all fell in love with him and the vet too!  Okay I'm exhausted now and off to bed.  Night!


  1. Yikes. I have three dogs and hate to see them hurt. I hope he heals in record time :)

  2. Poor Ben-ben :( Praying for quick healing.
    Love, Newtmom

  3. I love your blog! I feel bad for Ben. We had this happen to a little Maltese dog we had years ago. i hope he will feel better soon.

  4. Thank you all for your comments! We picked Ben up this morning at the vet and he seems to be sewn up just right and doing okay. We have him on antibiotics and pain meds and just pray this trauma doesn't change his wonderfully loving personality at all.

  5. Oh poor baby! I can imagine your husband was a bit freaked out. That would scare the daylights out of me. What is happening with the dog that bit him? What if Ben had been a kid?
