Five Things Friday

Good Morning!

I’m so happy it’s Friday as it’s been a doozy of a week! It started with a trip to the emergency vet with Penny and a few trips since then. The good news is she’s on the mend, but she’s been diagnosed with a hormonal disorder and she’ll have to get monthly injections. We’re just happy some of our issues with her might be solved! And, I got some practice with middle of the night wake up calls. See- even planning has it’s positive side. :)
