I can breathe for the first time...Just kidding. After about a year's absence I kinda just have to start over here. Here are the major highlights: I started a new job! 🙂 Our dog died. 😦 I restarted and then quit grad school. Again. 😦 I've gained about 20 pounds. 😦 One out of four... Continue Reading →
Hi. I'm in one of those "I feel like talking/typing but I have nothing of value to say but am going to post anyway" kind of moods. Which usually ends up to be long rambling paragraphs about baby poop or the dream I had last night. But you don't mind or else you wouldn't be... Continue Reading →
In an exam room at my doctor's office that is. They got me into a room without the usual one hour wait so that was nice. Of course, the doc might not get in here for another week or so. Scratch that. He'll be here soon I'm sure. I'm trying to think more positively lately.... Continue Reading →
I have a walking-giggly-climb-over-the-dog-drink-outta-da-sippy kind of girl....
So it's Friday morning and I have the day off but am super busy. In my mind anyway. I'm physically not super busy because I am completely zoned out in bed with the laptop and a poptart. But trust me, in my brain I'm being productive. Need to get off my bum and pack for Sam... Continue Reading →
Dressing room lights are severely unforgiving. As in, they should be illegal. Making the workout pants I purchased all the more necessary. The dog will always have to go out to pee as soon as I've sat down to feed the baby. The key to world peace....nitrous oxide. Who wouldn't get along while chilled out... Continue Reading →
Doesn't Cooper look like he's having fun? Maybe he should be a canine male model because I think he's got that over-the-shoulder pose down pat. At Beaman Park...
Guess I know who Cooper's voting for. The neighbors put out a McCain/Palin sign and Cooper is growling and barking at it like its an ax murderer coming after us. I'd be laughing harder if he didn't keep waking the baby.
...that I wrote about here? It was short-lived. Here's a very brief description of how the following couple of days went... 1. The Accountant's grandmother had a stroke and has been in the hospital. She's much better now and is nearly back to her old self. 2. Cooper either got bit by a snake or had... Continue Reading →
Been a long day so this is all I got...a picture of Cooper looking pitiful because he can't come through the gate to play with the cat, Cartman. And this is what Carty thinks about me always posting photos of Cooper but none of the real master of the household. Someday I will dig out the... Continue Reading →
And that's what I feel like tonight. So here we go. Just when you think MySpace is a waste of time it turns around and surprises you. Over the past week I've reconnected with a couple of people I went to high school with and it's pretty cool. But bizarre and it makes me feel old because we are all... Continue Reading →
...catch up that is? It seems that real life, including not enough sleep, have taken a lot of my time away from the "internets". Ah well, that's just how it goes I guess. Basketball: First of all, can we just say wow and congrats to the Belmont Bruins for what was apparently a great game against Duke... Continue Reading →
Ah, Saturday. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways... The Accountant took off for work earlier as he is prone to do on Saturdays this time of year. Gotta love tax season. It's 9:00am and I've just woke up. Or should I say, I've just got up. I've been awake for a while... Continue Reading →
Because it's been a while since I've posted a picture of Cooper, here he is at obedience class "graduation" a couple of weeks ago. And in the most awkward sleeping position I've ever seen. That cannot be comfortable can it? Excuse the demon eyes. Little does he know, he is going to get snipped in... Continue Reading →
Yeah, so I am sucking at this blogging while pregnant thing, but I thought I'd drop by and give you the latest highlights from my exciting life. Heh. Today I met with my advisor for the grad school program (MA English) I'm going to attempt. It went great and we figured out which class I... Continue Reading →
So this is old news but not any less fabulous. A couple of weeks ago when I went to my parents for my mom and my birthday hoo-rah, Scout came over with this glorious replica of Cooper....in CHOCOLATE!!! Chocolate Lab in Chocolate Cake, get it??? Love it!! And the bone was a super nice and... Continue Reading →
I suppose it would be really corny of me to put a bow on his head and get one of those photo Christmas cards done at Walgreens wouldn't it?
I am loving this weather! It's the perfect fall temperature and the leaves in my part of town are gorgeous. My morning walks with Cooper have been delightful (to use a word that should be used more often). Today will be a busy one. Church in a bit, and then I'm thinking I'm going to... Continue Reading →
Back from what I'm not sure. Here's a run down of the last few days. The Accountant installed an invisible fence for Coop. We didn't exactly follow the training plan that came with it but it is working nonetheless. It's a big relief too because he was getting to where he would just wander off across... Continue Reading →
Dogs are gross. Cooper can stink up a room with some of the most horrendous passing of the gas you've ever had waft by your nose. Oh my goodness. I think some of the treats we bought don't agree with him. And the humping of his bed isn't too pretty either. He's a disgusting creature and if... Continue Reading →
