Adrianne- It will be worth it in the long run. Hoping you guys get things more figured out soon. My thoughts are with you guys for happy houses!!!

Thank you, it's been exhausting. Heartbreak after heartbreak. We're really starting to sink and we've having a hard time not regretting taking the leap. I know it will be worth it but it's the journey that is killer. My mom asked last night why I don't just leave Shamoo with her and I couldn't find the breath to start crying. I relayed the message to Denis and he began ranting furiously about refusing to split the dogs up, we're a family and we stick together, he's really a good man.

I just want a light, even a tiny one, that this will all work out. Hopefully if my brother is open to us renting from him it will give us a bit of comfort. It will be tight quarters and the dogs won't be allowed in the house much (more than one at a time on leash) but it will be worth it. Plus we can help brother bear pay down his mortgage post-haste.

This weekend I have a dock dogs event with Shamoo and Backup and while I look forward to the break and some pre-paid fun it won't be the same. I'll feel guilty leaving the non-jumpers home alone or I'll take them all and struggle with time management.

I'm stocking up on marrow bones because all of my work to eat toys have been packed already. Poor bored doggies. I think I've lost weight with all of these walks lately and my arms have grown an inch or two as well from the excitement. -_-

If it were all at once itd be a little harder to deal with I think. There's a lot of crazy to deal with lol!
I do M-F 11:30-5. So not a ton but I am just not enthusiastic enough nor do I have the ability or the desire to constantly be directing them around and telling them to stop doing X. The day DRAAAAAGGGGSSSSS by. Not like I didn't know what I was getting into but it's different actually doing it... and I kind of feel like this is the type of job where you HAVE to love it because it's not fair to anyone otherwise.

Plus they have a couple days coming up where they want me to work more hours and I am like PLEASE GOD NO. I can't spend 9 hours with them. omg.

I tried to come up with a list of reasons why I should stay, and a list of why I want to leave. The only thing I could put on my "reasons to stay" side is that I get weekends off. lol. I am okay with doing a little job jumping at this point in life....

I know what it's like to look for a place and have no luck. I wish that I could help you guys in some way. My aunt and friends have looked and there just isn't anything over there good.

I hope your Brother lets you rent from him! That would be a very good thing and give you guys more time!

Seriously, my thoughts are with you guys to find something quickly and something that fits what you guys need.

Hannah has had an accident THREE nights in a row. ARGH. I take her to potty before I go to bed but she's still having an accident around 4 or 5 am. She sleeps right through it until she wakes up wet. I know she's really tired because we are SO busy but I can't figure out why the accidents again all of a sudden when she goes weeks without any.

The worst part is I can never get back to sleep right away after being up taking care of that so I'm exhausted the next day.

Any chance she's got some bladder irritation or a slight UTI?

Adrianne, that's a lot of extra stress on top of moving. Some sociologic studies point to moving being one of the highest stressors in our lives, not all that far behind a death in the family. Add on the hurdles you're dealing with and . . .

Denis gets all kinds of great cred for his stance on the dogs

I suppose it's possible but she's not peeing more than normal the rest of the day and she's not complaining of any discomfort and she just finished a round of antibiotics not long ago.

she just seems to go through a cycle where she has no accidents for a couple weeks and then suddenly has them all at once and then she'll go back to no accidents again.

Maybe she's just sleeping harder then.

EDIT: Just a thought . . . you said she finished a round of antibiotics -- maybe there's a little yeast irritation that's not really noticeable to her during the day?

well she is DEFINITELY sleeping harder lol I've actually been putting her to bed a half hour earlier than I normally do the past few weeks because she is exhausted by the time 7:30 rolls around.

yeast is a possibility. I'll keep an eye on it but hopefully... no accidents tonight lol I would really like a full nights sleep (not that I ever sleep the whole night anyway but still lol)

Best parenting tip I've ever been given by a friend "put two sets of waterproof sheets and regular sheets on the bed. then if she has an accident you only have to take one set off and the next set is on already and ready to go" putting on a new set of sheets int he middle of the night SUCKS lol
