Moans and Groans


I have officially entered the 3rd trimester. Do I get a prize??? No??? Why not? ha

My friends are throwing me a baby shower next week, I am excited to see friends and family, but I have never been a fan of baby showers. In fact I avoid them whenever possible. It's not possible this time... BUT I figure after all the gifts I have sent along to others, well, why not just sit back and enjoy.

My ribs hurt. I feel as though baby is taking up residence there and I am not really a fan. Oh well. I also notice that when I am getting up from a lying down position I moan and groan a bit. Eek! Although Kraymer is doing that now whenever he moves (he's 9, my little old man) so we kinda match which makes me laugh.

In other news, we are fostering a new pup. Here are a few pics for ya! She's a cutie pie...

This is Cupcake on the couch next to Ron. Kraymer is on my lap sleeping in the forefront...


And here is Cupcake getting comfy in the dog bed on the floor. She cracks me up!


So she has been keeping us a bit busier. She is heartworm positive so her treatment will be coming up! She also has people interested in her already as well, so we'll see if and when they are approved to take her home.

Happy Sunday peeps! I think it's time I go lay down again to give my ribs a break from sitting. Be jealous! ha

That's so nice to foster...Great Danes are super sweet dogs! Such a funny picture of her, too!

Too funny... Kraymer is a mere 95lbs, perfect lap dog size! You crack me up. Sarge is 25lbs and makes my legs fall asleep when he sits in my lap after 10 or more minutes. Love the pics of Cupcake though. So nice that you have the house and yard to take in such great pups. Hope she has as nice a new home!

hehe Yes, Kraymer can be a bit heavy at times, I admit. But he's just so cute! I love Sarge and Rigby!

I love Cupcake! How will you ever part with her!

It will be hard, but we knew going in that we'd be short term housing for her. We are trying to make her days bright after she was left behind by her former people... aaannnddd we are certainly enjoying her now!

Cute pup! Though he looks pretty big!
I'm glad you plan on sitting back and enjoying your baby shower. It's your turn! Besides, they are usually more fun than you expect them to be. Eventually you will 'drop', and your ribs will get some welcomed relief.

Yes, and then the delivery worries will kick in fierce!

Great looking doggies. Cupcake looks like anything but...

I'm curious to see if her adopters keep her name... she is a super smart little lady!

you're on the home stretch now! baby showers can be a bit silly but they are really fun. especially seeing all the new things they have for babies. I can remember having hubby tie my shoes for me because I just couldn't reach them anymore, no matter which way I tried!

I must admit I'm amazed at how this belly impedes regular movement! It's such an odd feeling, but only a few months left...

this time your on the receiving end of baby shower , don't knock all it its all useful
ALL looking good , how about vet fees are you insured?
comment by kevinshere on Feb 10, 2013 10:46 PM ()
No pet insurance! I feel as tho its like human insurance, and when you need it most it will be denied...

I forgot to mention you do get a prize but you have to wait until the end of the third trimester.
comment by nittineedles on Feb 10, 2013 3:53 PM ()
well this is true!
reply by kristilyn3 on Feb 12, 2013 1:35 AM ()
I've been grunting and groaning for many years now. It gets attention, but I don't let that bother me. Besides, you have a better excuse! Good reasoning on the shower. you paid your dues!
comment by jjoohhnn on Feb 10, 2013 3:12 PM ()
I suppose as I get older I will be moaning and groaning again, but for now it's new to me!
reply by kristilyn3 on Feb 12, 2013 1:34 AM ()
Neither one appears to be much of a lap dog.
comment by nittineedles on Feb 10, 2013 3:08 PM ()
Oh my Kraymer is only 95 pounds, perfect lap dog size!
reply by kristilyn3 on Feb 12, 2013 1:33 AM ()
Nice to hear from you there.You can groan and moan all you want that is your right.Thank you for stopping by.
comment by fredo on Feb 10, 2013 2:05 PM ()
I'm happy you fared the big snow well, and I'm looking forward to hearing Ruby updates!

Are you walking with your toes turned out? Cupcake is a nice name for that big dog. Great Danes were popular in the late 1940s and 50s - there is a song about settling down in a cottage for two with a Great Dane called Ace by the fireplace.
comment by troutbend on Feb 10, 2013 1:32 PM ()
She is so much fun... Sounds like an interesting song, never heard it!
