When Life Isn't Stressful Enough...

This time of year is stressful for everyone. Christmas is 2 weeks away and we leave for Disney the very next day which is complete insanity to me. To make matters worse the hubby has been away for work since the end of November and won't be back until December 23rd. Basically leaving me alone to take care of all the Christmas shopping and vacation prep not to mention working and caring for Liv. I have literally been pulling my hair out which is why there isn't as much blogging going on as I would like.

Liv is a complete daddy's girl and has been missing him like crazy. Crying all the time and asking "when is daddy coming home?" It's breaking my heart. On top of it we had to put one of the house's dogs to sleep just two days before my hubby left and she finally realized the dog was "missing" about a week ago and didn't take that too well. Definitely been looking for ways to cheer my little 2 year old up. 

I have always wanted guinea pigs as a pet so my husband and I decided that after we got back from vacation we would look for a pair for Liv. Well, I work for a veterinarian and one of my co-workers knew someone who had two 8 week old males she was looking to basically give away. Problem? She couldn't hold them so I am going to pick up to baby guinea pigs today. Nothing like adding more to my to do list. 

I have never had guinea pigs so I am trying to research everything I need and how to care for them on top of everything else that is going on. I am certifiably nuts!! But Liv is so excited and not as sad knowing we are getting them today which makes it so worth it. But I need help with these little suckers. Anyone ever have them as a pet? Tips? Suggestions? Thanks a bundle!!! xoxo


  1. Sounds like your household is going through some crazy times right now. Hang in there. That Disney vacation will be awesome (and so will Christmas) you just gotta get there. Hang in there.

  2. Even though the getting ready is kind of crazy, it sounds like your Disney vacation is coming at the perfect time. You're all going to need it.
