Night Potty Training and More!

Wow! After months of trying pull ups, underwear under pull ups, etc., Marc and I decided that on Friday night we would buckle down and do the training pants. Friday night was awful. She had three or four accidents during the night, a few of which she didn't wake up. Saturday was one less. Sunday and Monday nights were the same. Last night though, she did it! She went through the night dry. She got herself up at 2:30am and went potty. She's sporting her new Aurora undies this morning as a reward! Yay, Sydney! :) I'm sure we have many more wet nights ahead, but it is nice to have a ray of sunshine today.

The house hunt is about to cease. Seriously. I'm sick of it. We have one final contract bid out and after that, I'm ready to call it quits for a while. I hear complaints on the news about the housing market and it being a buyer's market and it leaves me dumbfounded. Marc and I are reading, willing and able buyers and we have been unsuccessful in finding a home. Nutty!

Mom and Tom had to put their puppy, Callie, to sleep this week. She was diagnosed with cancer last spring and it finally took charge. Mom and Tom are, of course, having a difficult week, but they find comfort in the fact that Callie won't suffer anymore.

My sister lost her job last week. Her company is in serious trouble and has laid off numerous employees. Thankfully, she had her ear to the ground and had already started circulating her resume. I'm betting she'll have a job soon.

Well, I'm off. I hope you have a great day!

Thanks for the updates. Sorry about your moms dog & your sisters job. Fingers crossed she finds something soon.

Yay Syd on the staying dry!

Hooray Syd! That is AWESOME news!

As for the house, I'm so sorry. House hunting can be such a bear. Ugh. Prayers for your sister and Mom and Tom.
