hank is sick

Hank has learned a very obnoxious trick over the last several weeks. He will sneak into the pantry and break into our snacks that in a container on the floor. He did it again yesterday. He ate some granola bites and rice krispy treats.

This morning at 3:00 a.m. we were awaken by Hank vomiting in bed. Luckily were in time to keep it from getting all over the bed. Then at 4:00 a.m. we were awaken by Hank again vomiting. This time we had a towel underneath him. Unfortunately, some of it got on our sheets. So at 4:00 a.m. we took our sheets off our bed. I went to the guest bathroom to get a clean towel for Hank to sleep on. When I walked out of the bathroom I nailed a table in the hallway. My clumsiness caused a large glass vase to fall off the table and shatter on the floor. So at 4:10 a.m. Ashley and I picked up the broken glass.

By this time I was getting a little upset. I planned on getting up early for a 4-5 mile run before work, but now I worried I would be too tired. When we finally crawled back in bed it was 4:20 a.m. Thankfully I was not able to go back to sleep, but when I just about had Hank had another episode at about 5:15 a.m. After dealing with that, I managed to doze off for a while.

When my alarm went off at 6:15 I got up and went to the bathroom to start getting ready for my run. I paused. Then realized there was no way I was going to be able to go running and make it through a 10 hour work day - so I went back to bed.

I tell you that story as a parable of sorts. The true meaning, I am not ready in the least for a child. I can barely deal with a dog.

heylee photo shoot

Last weekend (July 20) our good friends Aaron and Jen Snow were in town. Aaron is a very talented photographer in OKC. He wanted to do a Dallas photo shoot and asked our friend Heylee to be the subject - with a cameo by Hank the dog. So Aaron, Jen, Ashley, Hank and I loaded in the car and went around town taking pictures. Needless to say they turned out awesome! If you don't believe us check out Aaron's blog the link is on the left of our blog or you can just go to http://aaronsnowphotography.blogspot.com.
