Pearl weighed in at 9 pounds when we got her and now, about 3 weeks later weighs 15. Her legs are hilarious - if it was deerhunting season she'd have to stay in the house. She was working on very bad behavior yesterday, she seems to go back and forth between Good Pearl and Bad Pearl. Yesterday David finished steam cleaning the carpets. Two things happened. It rained a lot thereby kicking up a huge amount of mud and Pearl seemed unable to resist acres of clean carpeting and spent a great deal of time Sneaky-Pooping about the house. She managed to drive everyone completely nuts because her other new thing is asking to go out a million times a day and then the one time you wait 5 minutes to take her out- oops, there it is. Sigh. I know this too will pass, but I just wish it would pass a little faster. Jackson is getting all excited about Tennessee AND has been very cruel in gloating around his mother. He did confirm that he WILL be spending time in DollyWood and I'm so jealous I could spit. He told me he would pick up some souveniers and if he saw Dolly he would say hi - Grrrr. I think I'm the only person in the world that hasn't been to Dollywood. David called his mom to let her know he'd be home for Easter - he was going to surprise her but I told him that might not be a good idea. Not because of the cardiac problems but she might go over someone's house and not be there, then he would be the one being surprised. Ray I think is very excited about seeing David and spending a couple of weeks with him. I'm excited about having some time alone - on the other hand yesterday David and Jackson were out late. The pets weren't happy so they ALL joined me on the couch and all I could think was I have way too many animals.
