It's been a long while since I've updated the blog...sorry to anyone who's been looking! We've had some big changes in the Bilodeau home over the past month, and while I can't blame the absence of updates on that, I will try :)

The first big change is that Dan was offered a promotion at work. While this will come with a raise and increased responsibility, it also came with new hours. He now works would would be considered a traditional split 2nd/3rd shift Sunday through Wednesday. This means that the kids and I are on our own those four nights, but Dan has taken over morning duties (so appreciated!) and he now has three days off. This summer will be even nicer when I'm off work too!

The other big change was that we had to put Leo to sleep at the beginning of March. He wasn't acting right, and when we took him to the vet, we were told he had internal bleeding and most likely cancer in his belly. We started him on medication, hoped for the best when he had a couple good days, but had to make a decision when he quickly declined. While it was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, I know that we did what was best for him. And I know that we can never replace him, but I'm hoping to have another dog in the near's strange how you can get used to having one in the house.
