Missed you guys!!!!
Hello my friends!! Yes, I’m still here and I’ve missed you. Wanted to check in since it has been forever ago and let you know what’s up. We had a wonderful vacation at Kentucky Lake at the end of August. It was just nice spending time with two of my favorite people. It’s not often that Ron, Cody and myself find time to actually spend enjoying things we love together, so it was very nice.
The week after we came home we had a tragedy strike. Our little BB was attacked by yellow jackets. I went out to let her and her sister inside after their morning pee and found at least 25 to 30 yellow jackets on her. We got them off and rushed her to the vet. They gave her tons of medicines and let me bring her home, but the next day she went down hill. After fighting for two days at the vet, which we were by her side the whole time, she finally lost the battle. It has been so hard because our dogs are our family. Her sister, Cin, still runs around looking for her and that is so hard to watch. Never have I seen anything like this before, but these yellow jackets are very aggressive and we have found the nest that we believe attacked BB and we also found another one that my son ran over with the lawn mower. He was lucky enough to get away before getting stung. Both nests were gassed and burned. Please watch out for your dogs and children. The nests we found were in the ground. If you wait until dusk you can find them by watching for movement near the ground. At this time of day they are usually heading back into their nest. Don’t get near it, but remember where it is so you can destroy the nest at night when they are not as active. So again please watch your dogs and children, I would hate to see this happen to anyone else. So very sad!
Now on to a little better news. The Monday after we got home from vacation and after many months of thinking I gave my two weeks notice at my job. As of last Monday at 3:00 p.m. I started a new part of my journey as a full time author. Other than the nightmare of what happened to BB, I have never been happier. I absolutely love being able to connect more with you guys here and facebook, plus more writing time!
I just want to thank everyone for their support and all the messages I get. I make sure to answer them all so please check back if you message me here. Absolutely love talking to you guys!!! Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I will have a release date for Sid. This is my first full week of writing full time so still trying to find my groove. So thank you again for being patient and just sticking with me. Check back very soon because I will be doing more giveaways, one coming very soon! YAY!!!
