She still has concert hangover but is able to walk despite sore legs today. Yesterday she had to crawl like a baby when she got up.

If you're interested in the close photos go to and click the photos link at the top of the page, then it's the first album. You can also see photos from other shows (and his hometown) she went to before this past weekend.


She's back!

I missed mommy so much, she was away for 2 nights. She had a great time at the show and got lots of good pictures. She couldn't do anything though until we had a good cuddle session first. Her voice is coming back and she has to take ibuprofen just to be able to walk (standing for hours on end in sand bar does that to her). She wants to go to Pizza Hut for the P'zone deal tonight so she can just sit and they'll wait on her. I can't blame her for what she went through yesterday, sweating in the sand bar, unable to eat, only allowed to take 1 bottle of water & couldn't get more to drink 'til after the show.


She's rarin' to go!

Mom has prepared her food for tomorrow (she has an unreserved standing only spot so must take some food & a bottle of water), washed the dishes, done the laundry & put it all away. She just needs to double check what she packed, go out for supper, shower & make sure I'm set up for the next 2 nights on my own and take the big bag of garbage to the chute. She worked so hard to clean yesterday and get things done so she can unwind when she gets home.

She's gonna leave a sticky note notice on the apt door that I'm here alone and who to contact in case of an emergency. She gave spare keys to an aunt in town that can be here in minutes. Sometimes neighbors neglect their cooking and smoke alarms go off. She has left feeding instructions on the fridge but will be leaving more than enough food out for me and a dish full of water. She plans to hide my treats around the apartment so I can have fun finding and eating them. The radio will be on, the a/c will run on low & we'll sure miss each other 'til she returns!


I'm gonna miss mom

She's already stressed thinking about all the things she has to do today so she's ready to go tonight, but still looking forward to the show tomorrow. She's gotta have breakfast & lunch here then clean all the dishes in the sink. Then she's doing the laundry after that. Once the laundry is done she's gonna finish packing & round everything up together. Then she's gotta figure out her supper (she either wants to go to DQ or order in - pizza). Then take a shower & spend a little time with me (and make sure my food & water bowls are really full) since she'll be gone until Monday. She bought the tix in December before she knew I was coming to be her roomie.

It's her 15th time seeing Kenny (wishing she could meet him), 2nd seeing Tim & Jake and 1st seeing Grace. It's her first time in the sand bar fur real! She's been near the sand bar before but never in it. She expects crazy rowdy drunk people around her by the end of the night. She doesn't drink expensive venue booze at shows, she prefers occasional drinks with family and it's less rowdy.


PC spraying is done

Mom made sure we both ate and used the bathroom before they came to spray. She crated me both to keep me safer and allow the guy to do his job without my interference. She closed off access to the bedroom & bathroom where the spraying was done, and he said it's safe enough we could stay in so mom e-mailed the vet that he said it's safe.

Mom has a lot of things to do this afternoon, I got fur all over the place! She brushed me real good yesterday.


Pest control coming tomorrow

They were supposed to come today but something came up. Just to be safe mom e-mailed my vet's office and they suggested that we step out for a bit when they spray. Mom is going to try to find out if what they spray could make us sick (they've come in a few times already & mom hasn't noticed any new health issues for her) and how long we should wait to come back in. There's a little lobby area by the elevators on our floor so we'll probably go there for however long we should be out of our apartment. It's just beyond the neighbor's apartment.

Mom doesn't want me going up & rubbing all over the pest sprayer person like I'd normally do with people that come into our apartment. She's a little more concerned now about leaving me home alone for 2 nights this weekend just after this little treatment. 1 of her 2 in-town aunts has keys so she might ask if she would mind coming to see me on Sunday afternoon.

Yay I'm a DDP today!

Today the pest control specialist is coming to spray all the apartment units on our floor so Mom is gonna put me in my crate with my breakfast so I don't interfere with them (she knows how much I love visitors) or get too close to the fresh spray. The weather is slowly returning to normal after that crazy heat wave.

*Update* the pest control specialist was unable to make it today but coming tomorrow. As long as it's cooler and it's not raining mom will open the windows and spray them herself, since she's seen bugs come in under the screens. They spray in the bathroom & another spot or 2 but never bother to spray the windows. They come once a month and spray a different floor each time.

Mom is so excited that the big concert (Tim McGraw & Kenny Chesney) is only 3 days away! I'll be holding down the fort (aka apartment) on my own again. After this one she'll be staying home & around town the rest of the summer.


A quiet & low key July 4th

Mom was in and out all afternoon. First she took the s'more pie down for potluck and brought too much of it back so she's eating as much of it as she can before the weekend. Then at 3:00 it was time for bingo, she played 2 cards & won 3 times (so she won her money back for today and the other quarter back from Monday when she only won 1 game). Then after bingo she came back into our apartment with the a/c on. We watched the Macy's July 4th and she put the HD channel version on just for the fireworks (and she was rocking along to Chesney & Swift's music) and it was amazing.

She doesn't feel like dealing with the heat just to play with her sparklers tonight and it's so hot that none of the usual crazies are throwing firecrackers or shooting fireworks. Mom's waiting for the Friday cool down to go out and light 'em up, she only does sparklers. She'll go out to part of the street dance & watch fireworks at her mom's Sat night then up as early as possible to head for the big concert at Target Field. She's been looking forward to this concert since December!


Happy Independence Day!

I changed my profile photo again to celebrate July 4th. There's a noon potluck meal tomorrow so mom is going to make the s'more pudding pie 1 more time for that. No fireworks in our town (unless any nearby house neighbors bought them). The next town over usually has a parade & stuff all day up to the fireworks at night, but that isn't going on until Saturday. Mom's gonna go have a little pre-concert fun at the street dance, then Sunday she's off to see Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Grace Potter & Jake Owen at Target Field. She is sooooooo excited! She leaves Sat night to sleep at her mom's and returns sometime Monday. Once we've reunited and had a little time together she'll be working on her concert pics from the standing only pit that surrounds the stage.

Next weekend is a 3 day local event with fireworks, parade, pancake feed & more. Not as fun as the concert but something to do in a town with nothing going on other than that and the county fair all year. Mom is considering entering photos of me for contest entry at the fair.

We have an excessive heat warning today so we're staying in and keeping cool. If this doesn't break with storms today it's gonna be a warm night.


Gonna be a hot one today

We're getting some of that July heat as we're under a heat advisory from noon to 10 tonight. Mom is going to limit her exposure to the hot hallways as much as possible by staying in our air conditioned apartment most of the day. It's only going to be in the 90's here so we'll probably get some bad weather later today.

Mom is used to this since she lived in GA from when she was born to just before her 25th birthday. She's planning to wear a tank top, shorts & flip flops like she did down south. She might even make some corn bread & sweet tea.
