Moki was excited to be home. We hiked the Y three times this week, jogged once, and then had a biking adventure. Oh and we went to play with Brewer and Pickles. She had a good week. But she is a good dog so she deserved it. I love her hair as it is getting longer.
Amanda's birthday was on the 31st so I headed up North with my cousin Heather's girls to get some ice cream.
We have been hiking late at night so she is still in sleep mode after I bike in the mornings. LAZY!
It has been so nice to eat my normal diet. That is one thing I hate about traveling. I have eaten CRAP, excuse the language, all summer. Saturday I enjoyed some greek yogurt with fresh fruit. So yummy!
Moki was awesome and she loved it. She always wants to be ahead of me because she pretends that she is the pack leader.
I spent the night picking stickers off of my dog. Over 1,000 stickers. This is not an exaggeration. It was crazy. It took 2 and 1/2 hours. Luckily she was so tired she just layed on my bed while I attacked her. As I was finishing I noticed her front paws are rubbed off. Just on the palm paw, but how sad is that. It looks similar to a blister the actual paw is still hanging and connected. Poor puppy. She seems ok but maybe that was a little much. Previously her longest distance was 5 miles at one time.She has not complained and she walked around today but I kept her inside. Hopefully it heals fast because seriously I do not want to take her to the Vet. But I will if it doesn't look good this week. But we also need to take advantage of our last two weeks of summer.
This morning before church I got news that a little three year old girl in our ward passed away from her brain tumor. It has been a year long battle and just so sad. I had no idea she was to that point. I knew the tumor had come back, it never was malignant just aggressive, but I taught her little sunbeam class three weeks ago. I am heart broken for their family. I can't imagine the pain they are feeling at this time. Pain that really only the atonement can heal and even then I imagine it takes a lot of time. They are in my thoughts and prayers.
I was also released as camp director and called as the first counselor in young women's. They want me to do a calling more than three months out of the year? What the heck? Just kidding. I am excited but also nervous. It is a big time commitment and a lot of responsibility. I know all the young women though and they are awesome. I think it will be fun but also very challenging. I can't escape teenager girls, but I am ok with that. So here's to a new adventure!
