dogs: have been bolting every time they see a squirrel...for the second day in a row they broke free from me when i was walking them and they were gone for a good hour. when they finally showed up they smelled horrific! i tried to get the bad boys into the tub to no avail. they've been on lock-down since. dad will have to wash them when he gets home (he'll be psyched). despite my best efforts my house smells like a barn.
ruby: i got home a little early from work last night and was able to see the girls before they went to sleep. ruby said : 'mom, the kids asked me why i had to stay back in second grade' me: 'yeah? what did you tell them?' ruby: 'that my mom said it was the perfect place for me' me: 'that's a great answer ruby! do you feel like it's the perfect place for you?' ruby: 'yes but can i skip third grade' :)
