Happy Things! (And some grumbling)

I am super wiped out. I've had a bad bout of stones again, thankfully nothing excruciating, but constant low-level pain that is very tiring and making it hard for me to sleep. It's very frustrating and I've been getting the pep talks from Mom that I was giving to her when she wasn't well.

But, there are some good things going on! My brother got engaged! Which was totally unexpected. Not partner-wise; we love his girlfriend and they've been living together for a couple of years and we assumed they would be a long-term thing, but we weren't sure if they were going to get married or just be common-law. And didn't care. But they've decided to get married, so that's really cool, and we're pretty stoked about it.

Paxie is very slowly starting to settle down. The other day he was out playing in the living room while I was at the computer and he came over and laid down on my foot which is a huge breakthrough! He's still a bit wild, but he's getting there. And he's still hilarious. We got a new dishwasher and the first time we ran it, he felt the need to growl 'back' at it when it made noise. He's also barked at a shovel and bag of groceries. No one is bossing him around, no matter how inanimate they are. I've taken some pictures of him with my new camera, but I think my settings are off because most of them came out really grainy. I'll have to fiddle with them. Here's one that wasn't so bad, though:

And Mom is still kicking ass and taking names, which is groovy.

Hope everyone else is doing well!
