The Face of Zanax

The kids and I were all sick this week. So we got very little done. I have some cute pictures of Gracie and Vacation Bible School that I'll post very soon.
Our 4th of July was pretty quiet, since Kaleb and I were still on the sniffly, coughing side. So we stayed home and BBQed hamburgers and did our own fireworks with the neighbors. Poor Sadie. Our basset hound is absoultely terrified of fireworks. Last year she ate through our fence and broke through the screened window. She was troubled for about 3 weeks after the 4th of July. So this year I kept her in, I turned up the TV's and kept the lights on while I went outside in hopes that she would do better. She did do better. No chewing, no broken windows, just a completely freaked out dog. I felt so bad for her. I ended up going in the house and missing some of the festivities so I could tend to my dog. Well, what do you do in times of extreme anxiety? You pull the Zanax and medicate not me, but the dog (according to the doggy therapist). It worked! Wow, did it work. She had no worries. I felt so bad for her, but Tee-Hee-Hee, we just had to laugh at the effect it had on her.

I hope you all had a super great 4th of July holiday. I hope you were able to enjoy the day with friends and family and reflect on our freedom.

Hey Stacey,
I guess the Xanax worked. (That really is the way itis spelled) WE went to the American Legion and celebrated with the American community there. When we came home we watched the fireworks on TV.
Sorry to hear you were sick, but glad to know everyoneis better now.
God Bless!
