Sunday Update – September 29, 2019

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

It won't surprise anyone that my update this week will be mostly Lulu, Ninja Assassin. That's her new name, by the way. She even has an Instagram you can follow! She's cute but deadly.

Honestly, all the days of this past week have blended together as we forge ahead with little sleep or any of our sanity left. Lulu is a great dog in pretty much every way, but she's still very much a puppy and will be for some time. She is cutting her puppy teeth and biting us a lot. Understandable, though, and she's not being aggressive. We've been doing our best to redirect, to praise good attention like kissing or snuggling, and saying NO to biting. She's already starting to get the hang of it.

She's also sleeping better now. She sleeps in our room in the pack & play each night. Usually getting good sleep from 10pm to 2am, then 2am to 4am, then up for the day around 6am. That's not too bad. We hope to transition her out of our room as she gets used to her crate.

This week I had my last week of twice-weekly physical therapy! Now, I have two weeks of once-weekly physical therapy and then I'm done. I've been getting in more walks, which is great, and as soon as Lulu is walking on the leash, I'll have a walking buddy too!

I'm almost done with my Flyght Book 4 edits! I have run out of time and energy most days because of the interrupted sleep so I'm a little behind. I just have to do my Grammarly and listening pass and wait for any other feedback from my readers.

A new month starts on Tuesday, but since that's my Teaser day for BROKEN FLYGHT, I will do my monthly update tomorrow.

What else happened this week?

Here, you can see Lulu settling into our house and our routines.

The park is looking green still but I expect that to change soon.

We bathed Lulu at mid-week so she didn't smell of the shelter anymore.

She is still very much a puppy! So when she's done zooming around the house and attacking everything in sight, she's chill and sleepy. Sometimes I have to put her in her crate to force her to slow down. She's a constant pacer. She will just trot around the house over and over until she's exhausted.

I took the kids to the pottery studio to find the last of their creations from summer art camp.

And I went to pottery too and made some nice looking bowls I'm happy with. We'll see how they look after I trim them!

Have a great week everyone!
