The Painted House

Our house is finally painted! It really looks great. They replaced the rotted wood and we got completely new shutters. They dripped a little paint on my plants, but that's not really a big deal.
DDH took down our back fence this morning. Mr. B's Fence Company is delivering new panels tomorrow morning. DDH is going to start putting it up while W's taking his nap, after W's 15-month check-up at the pediatrician. I won't be along for the fun, as I will be having my first subbing experience at Notre Dame High School. I want to sub some to make sure that I really want to go back to the classroom once I do go back to work. Part of me doesn't want to go back to the classroom, as I feel like a babysitter at times. However, there are aspects of teaching that I do love, and I just want to see if those aspects still outweigh the negative. I have ideas as to what else I could do besides teach, but since I have experience teaching and it does provide a nice summer break, I want to give it a try up here in NJ.
It's looking like Eudora might have to retire to MS. She isn't a mean dog at all, she's just old and can't see well. W. will come over to her and try to love on her and because she can't see well, it startles her. She grumps on W. a little too much, and last night she actually made physical contact with him. She left a couple of minor scratches on his face, frighteningly close to his eye. There was a bit of blood, which scared me, but once I got him cleaned up, it was clear that the wounds were small and shallow. I treated the boo-boos with hydrogen peroxide and put Neosporin on them. Thank God she didn't cause any REAL damage. DDH and I discussed it last night and think it would be best if she went to live with her Burdy and Ace at the Del Barka Vista-Rankin County Location before she does anything worse...
