What I'm up to...

Wednesday's Facebook status:
Babysitting Carrie's dog {Marcus} while she's in Orlando. Took him on a nice long walk this morning and felt like such a good grandma. Later, Doug found him across the street in the neighbor's front yard because I hadn't latched the gate. :o\ Bad grandma. I hope she'll trust me with grandchildren someday!!!

(yikes. I felt awful...and Carrie was not happy...)

Sunday's text messaging: (She misses her dog and inquires about his well being...)
Me: "We think Marcus buried his orange squeaky ball. Haven't seen it since his first day."
Carrie: "...or maybe he took it out of the backyard on his day out."
Me: "Very funny."

Marcus misses her too.
We're half way there, Buddy.
Carrie comes home on Thursday!
And on a completely different subject, Doug and I are re-finishing 1,200 sq. ft. of our floors with tile {note the flooring at Marcus' feet}. We're up to our eyeballs in dust and mortar. It's looking great but we have a long way to go. I'll post pictures of our progress soon!

Oh dear ;-)

Looking forward to seeing the end results with the floors - it will be worth the effort!

Marcus looks very happy! Here's hoping the rest of this stay is uneventful!

He is a cute one! Good luck with the project. We're recuperating here. Laid low most of the weekend except for a bbq, so she rested up.
Thanks for all the good wishes!

What a happy dog picture! Clara's cat is pining for her a bit.

Fancy owning up to it on Facebook! I bet Marcus could hardly believe his luck when that gate opened!
Good luck with finishing the floors.

I'm not sure I would have owned up to it!!!!

Oh, I missed this post! Not to worry--I've found that something almost always goes wrong when you babysit--something you hate to tell mom & dad! You did good! xo

I missed this post too!! I guess you'll never forget to latch the gate while you're minding future grandchildren though, eh?! ;-)
