Crazy Few Days

The critters have had a crazy few days - as have the humans.  We had visitors in from out of town to celebrate the hubs' birthday.  My mom was here visiting as well which meant an additional pup added to the mix and then we had a friend staying with us this week.

All of these things have minor impacts on the critters and their regular routines.  Winston spent a good bit of time in his room on party day.  His routine is a bit different when my mom's dog is here. The two of them are not particularly friendly so you have to make sure they are not out and about at the same time.  Emma is impacted in that we spend less time in our room which is her most comfortable spot. And the little critters are impacted in that I spend less time with them when we have so much going on and - when we have guests in the guest room they get to stay in their bedroom at night instead of having full access to critter land like they usually do.

All in all they did pretty well - Oliver was quite chatty at the door during this week.  He hears us chatting in the living room and wants to join in.  He did get some time out and about each day, hanging out in the living room and kitchen.

Tonight things are back to normal.  Winston is loving life as I just pulled his comforter out of the dryer and tucked him in with a nice warm blanket.  Emma is fast asleep on our bed.  I just spent some time in critter land loving on the little critters, feeding them and giving the kitties their meds.  Their room is on the list for a deep clean tomorrow or over the weekend.

Next week will be a busy one as well - vet visit on Monday.  My mom's dog staying with us while she visits family for Thanksgiving and then a house full on turkey day around here.  Then we put up Christmas and all of that madness begins....where did this year go?
