Finally. It was a long week.
I got the grand idea to paint the 4’x8′ trailer while he was gone. It’s nice to have a project when he’s away. This one required sanding, priming, and painting – in a week that it rained more than not. I pulled the trailer to the neighbors. They helped with sanding. Pretty sure I would not have pulled it off without them. Sanding tools we do not own made things so much easier.
Then… I waited. For three days, it rained. I finally had enough sun to paint Sunday afternoon. I got three coats on Sunday, before I had to give up for the night. I’ll sand and finish it up tomorrow. But… It’s black. Better.
Eden decided she wanted her hair cut. I cut eight inches off – she lost three pounds! Crazy thick hair.
And… Brady is missing. She has tags. She never wanders. She’s been taken twice before. It’s been three days. It’s pretty sad to pull in and not have her there. She’s always just around, happy to see you. I have a few really sad kids. Maisie disappeared almost a year ago now, and now Brady. Just dogs, but still.

WOW!! Sanding and painting a truck bed. My goodness you are a brave soul. Looks like you all did a pretty good paint job too.
You are a beautician too. You are a jack of all trades of a mom. Haha!!
I sure hate your dog is missing. Sounds like someone took both of them. That is a shame people can’t leave others things alone.
And yet, master of none. 😉
Oh no. I hope you get her back. How horrible for the children.
What happened the other times? How did you get her back?
Once, I posted on our local lost and found Facebook page. Someone had taken her from our yard but brought her back when they saw my post.
Another time, she jumped out of the van when we stopped at a rest area and I didn’t realize. We were inside for less than five minutes. When I came back out and opened the van to let her go potty, she wasn’t there. A guy nearby pointed at a car driving away and said they had grabbed her. They stopped when I ran after them.
