The week as always is off to a running start. On the schedule tomorrow is Lucas's second surgery to have the remaining un-salvageable teeth removed. I've been assured that the length of time that he's to be under the anesthetic will be shorter than last. I'm hopeful that will be the case, and everything will go well.
Winter has also returned. Today it's bright and clear but we are having a blast of cold wind and temperatures below freezing, reminding me again how stubborn Old Man Winter can be about leaving. Yesterday we had what the weathermen call 'conversational snow.,' I've never heard that term before but it apparently means that it amounts to nothing more than a conversation. Where do they get these terms?
I was told yesterday that Todd's day-camp where he's been going for several months is closing. I was so disappointed to be told that. They were a top-notch place that truly made a difference for my shy, but energetic and playful boy. It hit all the notes as far as care of the dogs, playtime, nap-time (can you believe they had down-time for all the dogs?) and the staff was the best. While its only been open for less than a year, apparently their closing has something to do with the landlord of the building. I've decided that he was obviously not a dog-lover, because he made it impossible and very expensive for them to continue to be in business. I really want Todd to continue to play with other dogs and be around different people. So once again my search for the perfect place will begin.
