The handywoman attacks again...

Yesterday night when we came home, we got ready to read your blogs. Minutes later "we" got a phone call. Someone from the internet company told us that they were going to do some maintenance work, sooo we would be without service for some hours. Well.... we were not happy with that but at least they were kind enough to let us know.

My mom decided to fix another light. It took some time but she made it. Then, she changed a thing on the closet door and then she put a door bolt on the shower door. It was past midnight when she finished but she was happy with her work!

Are you sure you know how to do it, mom??

Making sure my toys would not be touched...

Making sure my treats were in the right place...

Come here and finish your mess, mom...

Have you finished?? Can we go to sleep now??


Today I spent all the morning with my grandparents while my mom was at home cleaning and using the monster machine. She moved all the furniture around to make sure every corner was free of dust to avoid the spiders could make homes. She did not see any spider so she thinks the one that bit me was not "living" in our house.


I hope you all are having a great weekend!



Hi Lorenza,

Your mommy must take good vitamins! That was a lot of work! And not you don't have to worry about spiders!

Hi Lorenza,

Glad to see that you are doing well. We hope that you continue to improve.

As for your Mom, we hope that she is doing well, too. She sure has a lot of energry and she put her time away from the internet to good use. You are very lucky to have a mom like that, Lorenza.

Another thing, Lorenza. Tell your Mom that spring training games start this week. You'll be able to see the Yankees again soon. I know it's only spring training and the games are dull, but at least it's better than watching snow melt.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Hello Lorenza!

I bet you were tired after watching your Ma work away like that, maybe you need to buy her a toolbelt for christmas (if she doesn't have one already).

Spiderfree is best!

Your pal, Koda

Teddy Bear said...

Your surgery zipper seems to be healing nicely. Oooooh, the monster machine...I don't like that thing. I hope your Mom got all the bugs so they don't come near you.

Hi Lorenza, our mum is still in bed this morning - she says it is just as well as she needs a lie down just reading about all that hard work!

Glad you don't have to worry anymore about spiders. We sure don't want you to have to have another zipper. Mom sounds like she is very energetic. Good for her.

Very important to supervise the people when they get these bright ideas about fixing things. You never know where anything will end up! Glad you are back on line.

Your friends,

BRUTUS said...

What an industrious mom you have!! Go girl power!! I think she is handier than my dad!
Do I see that you have your very own refrigerator?!? Think you've one-upped me there, Lorenza!

Brutus the Frenchie


First off, nice butt shot.. hubba hubba!
Okay.. mom was cleaning to find that nasty spider. I think that is a great cause and at least you didn't have to help move the furniture.


Bobby said...

Glad you are spider free, we do not want you to get another bite. Your mum did work hard.

Madi and Mom said...

Lorenza we are glad you were snoopervising mom's handy woman activities. It so amazes us the things that can creep through tiny cracks finding their way into our space....I have to get on Mom every so ofte to make sure she stays on task!!
Happy Sunday Madi and Mom

Frankie Furter said...

You have the bestest mom!! Making SURE there are no spiders in your home.
You certainly did a very much grrrreat job of checking out your toys and snacks. Very much IMPORTANT WORK for sure!!!
I'll bet that spider lives in the yard with that MEAN GIRL DAWG you came across not long ago!! Stay very much far away!!
The MONSTER thingy... BAH!! Hate that thingy. I call it VACULA!!! I wrote a story about it once. I'm gonna have to dust it off and re-post it.
You look grrreat.

houndstooth said...

I'm glad your mom takes such good care of you! I hope there aren't any more of those nasty spiders around!


The OP Pack said...

Our Mom says it is amazing how much she can get done when she stays away from the laptop:) But we don't like that very much at all. Hope the maintenance work is all done now, Lorenza and kudos to your Mom for her great skills at repairwork.

Bijou said...

Your mom is very handy. We are glad no spiders were found in your home. We hate those creepy crawlies!


Agatha and Archie said...

Oh Loernza! We just read about your spider bite.It must be sooo itchy.Archy said that he will come down and protect you if you need any help( I would think about this a little if I were you) Love A+A

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Lorenza, we have been catching up with your blog. We are sorry to read you got bitten by a spider. We are very glad you are okay now, that must have been very painful for you.

We hope you get to go back on your walkies soon.

Twinkietinydog said...

Supervising again, Lorenza? Your poor mom is getting overworked by you. Couldn't you sniff the evil spider out? At least let mom do her work the way she knows how to. :)

Oscar the Beagle! said...

What a busy Mom you have Lorenza - what is it with Moms and cleaning? they are all the same!

So sorry you were without your computer - but alls well again - loved the post!

Tessa the Maltese said...

Wow Lorenza, your Mom is the BESTEST!!!

Not only is she making sure your home is spidy free but she is doing all the handy things too!

To top it all off you have you very own mini frig for your foods! Way to go Lorenza!

Hugs Girl and get better real soon!


Clive said...

Hi Lorenza

We're sure the spiders are all gone! That was great cleaning by your Mom!

We love your treat fridge! Very cool!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

Sagira said...

Can we call your mommy spiderwoman? That was so great of her to make sure that nasty spider isn't living in your house and can't hurt you again.

Huffle Mawson said...

Your mum is very good to try and get rid of any nasty spiders like that. My mum would probably say it's easier to move house.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Mean old spiders! Glad your mom is giving them the boot!

Oskar said...

I bet you were a great help with all of the work. Gread job!

Mayzie said...

When I told my mom about all the stuff your mom did, she had to lie down cuz she was pooped just hearing about it! You have a very good mom to go on a spider hunt for you. Good thing she didn't find it. I bet it woulda suffered much woe.

Wiggles & Wags,

Pipa said...

Lorenza-Guapita, what a great helper you are!

Mango said...

What a good mom to move all the furnitures and go on spider patrol for you. And so handy to fix things around the house too. You are very lucky.


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are sure glad that Mom didn't mess with your toys or treats..
Good job Mom, you could double as a maintenance person..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Ripley said...

Lorenza - you did such a good job of guarding your toys and treats! That can be a real challenge when humans get the crazy "cleaning bug" that seems to hit them from time to time. Here's counting the days until you can go on walks again!

Alli and Frankie said...

Poor Lorenza!!!!!! I'm so happy you are okay! I'm glad you got your owie taken care of. Spiders are mean! I hope your mom got them all!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Oh Lorenza, a spider hurted you and left you a zipper on the skin.
What kind of friend am I to fail to be with you in such a hard time time like that, my bad, I apologize!
I'm bad but I'm back!
I miss you so much, I want to promise that I visit your blog at least once a week and blog more frequently.
I'll come back to see you soon.
(You don't notice that I have been out a long while, do you? choking back tears! sob sob!
Love ya lots!

Dragonfly said...

Wow! Busy weekend :-)

The Army of Four said...

Your mom is amazing! She's quite talented - and it was great that she made sure your place is spider free!!!

We worry about spiders here too but nobody has been bitten yet. Hope you can get back to walking soon and dressing again.

love & wags,

We're glad you have your internet back. And a clean house. Sounds like your mom was thorough.

So very handy. Wish I was! Glad to hear you are spider-free. That's not an experience you want to repeat!

Holly and Khady said...

Mom's get funny that way when they are trying to protect us. I guess it's a good thing!

I hope your zipper is healing quickly!! I miss you in all your pretty dresses!

Holly said...

No more spider bites...once is more than enough!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Jake of Florida said...

What a mom you have!! We are very impressed. And she did well to clean out all the nooks and crannies where spiders like to hide. But it does sound as though the one that bit you came from outside.

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Eric said...

Your Mom is most impressive. Could Mom borrow her for a while to get some jobs done?!

Wiry love Eric xx

Mochi and Mommy said...

Wow, your mom sure has been busy! I'm glad there aren't any mean spiders around! Great job supervising! :)


Patience-please said...

Sonic said...

That's great of your momma to get rid of the spiders with the monster machine. It takes a monster to kill monsters!

Take care and get well soon, both of you!


Deborah said...

You sure do have a good Mom. I'm glad she checked the whole house for the scary spicers with big teeth! YIKES

ocmist said...

Your Mommy really loves you to do all that cleaning just to be sure there isn't a spider hiding somewhere just waiting to sneak out and attack you when you aren't looking! What a good Mommy!!! The CCC

Your mum is a very clever handywoman - unlike ours who is completely useless!
