He will be here Monday

Oh, what was I thinking? He will be here Monday. Noooooooooooo, not my grandson. My new little mini Cooper will be picked up Monday. Are we talking about a car? Nooooooooooooooo. I am getting a new puppy. He is a wire-haired piebald dachshund. I have a long-hair dachshund that is a black and tan dapple. I have a smooth-haired black and tan dachshund. Both of whom are very spoiled but very well trained. I ask myself why I am doing this. My only answer I can come up with is-dachshunds are like potato chips...you can't have just one. A friend told me this when I adopted my little smooth female dachshund. Three weeks later I picked up my little long-haired male. Now 3 and a half years later I am getting my third dachshund. I was hooked on dachshunds when I rescued my first one when I was about 12 years old. He was a red smooth standard dachshund. I saved him from the gas chamber so to speak. He had killed all the chickens at my friends farm. They woke up with dead chickens everywhere. Old Scooter sitting there with a big smile on his face. So starts my love of dachshunds. All of mine are miniatures and not the standard dachshunds. LOL! They take up less room and cleaning the yard behind them is easier. Oh my, I am a glutton for punishment. I am so kidding. I am ecstatic. Now my grandson will have a little doxie to grow up with him.

Speaking of my grandson, he will be here any day. The ob/gyn says he could arrive any day. Now this really excites me! Ashleigh has started back to college so that leaves granny to take care of baby everyday. I can't wait! She also has 2 part-time jobs. She has a doctors appointment today and we will find out more about when he will be here. I feel so privileged to be able to be so involved in my first grandchild's life. Life is good!

I am going to try to start posting daily. I have been on a diabetic medication that has really done a number on me. I am now off of it and my energy level has doubled. I am back to my old self. I wish I had followed my gut feeling and gotten off the medication a long time ago. So now with all this energy I have great plans. I plan on enjoying my grandson and developing a great relationship with him. And of couse I will be doing the doxie thing; house training the new one and walking them all by the river. Did I say spare time? Hmmmmmmmmmmm........maybe a
little spare time left to sew! Of course getting up an hour before everyone else will give me my sewing time. Like I said life is good! With the help of my Lord and Savior I will handle all of this and more!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Visit again soon.

Smiles :) Karen

Oh Karen!! I am so glad you are feeling better. I have been praying for you!
Our grandbabies will be about the same age. Rachel just called me 15 minutes ago and said she is having contractions. I think they are braxton-hicks, but you never know. She may go have them checked. Pray for her, if you would please, and I will pray for your daughter.
Congrats on the new baby...the puppy that is!! Take some pictures!

I checked in to see the baby pictures, I know you have a camera.
So come on and share with us. I remember how I felt when my granddaughter was born, it is a better feeling than having your own. LOL Congratulations Karen
