Today I woke up to SNOW on the ground, believe it or not! It wasn’t much but it was covering the cars and grass. Today also happens to be 2 of my girlies’ 3rd birthday. Chloe and Sugar joined big sister Bella to make us a 3 dog family. Love it!!
NaBloPoMo #8 Happy Birthday Furry Girls
Happy 2nd Birthday, baby girls!!
NaBloPoMo #11 New Addition <3
Yesterday I mentioned that I had something on my mind and today it all came to fruition. My friends who have Bella and Chloe’s parents initially kept one of the puppies from Chloe’s litter. Due to work changes in their lives they felt that they couldn’t give her enough attention so they asked me if I would mind taking her to be with her sisters. Little Miss Sugar came home today and so far so good! She’s so tiny and pretty much stuck close to me today but there was no major issue when I brought her home. Here are some pictures from our first day together.
NaBloPoMo #8 Happy Birthday!
I’m posting early today because I’ve got a busy pre-game day ahead. I already did my shopping and had a very successful trip. I bought lots of things on sale at Shaws and used coupons (turning over a new leaf!) and ended up with some OYNO (On Your Next Order) coupons for next time totaling $33.50!
I’m getting ready to start cooking for tomorrow’s tailgate in a little bit and then we’re going out tonight for sushi at my favorite spot, Ten Prime Steak and Sushi. But right now, I’m going to spend some time with the girls and give some extra snuggles to my little one, Chloe who is one year old today. <3
5 days old!
11 days old
Homecoming: Christmas Day
NaBloPoMo #4 I love being home :)
I’ve always wanted to be a stay at home mom which is no secret to anyone. I am lucky that I can at least be home on holidays, school vacations and all summer though, but it doesn’t change the fact that my very first and only career choice would be “mom” if we could afford it.
It was great to wake up this morning and not have to go to work. I LOVE being home. I love keeping a home and doing all things domestic. I love being able to exercise every day without getting up so very early. I love spending time with my family and snuggling with my dogs. These are things about me that, if you know me at all, you already know.
Today has been a great day so far… (I’ve yet to start on that dreaded assessment project for work though). I got up and headed straight to the gym then came home, had coffee, checked my email then headed out to vote and run errands. When I got home, I did my floors and dusted, did some laundry and put away the fall stuff that’s more Halloweeny and brought out the Thanksgiving things.
I’ve had iTunes open and playing all day so I’m catching up on some podcasts. (Since my ipod won’t sync I have a 30g video iPod full of podcasts that I’ve already listened to with no way to remove them and add anything else so I can only listen via my laptop now.) I’ve been popping on and off all day to check twitter, my email, and feeds. I’m enjoying a nice mug of pumpkin spice tea and made some treats for the kids.
I’ll be up late tonight following the election results but for now, I’m enjoying a bonus day off from work and loving every minute of it.
Spring is sprung but it felt like summer today! I took the girls on a nice long walk in woods, finished Merle’s Door which I’ve been trying to do all week, and read two shorties, Aquamarine, and Good Dog. Stay. this afternoon.
I’ve got a load on the line and all of my windows open. Just a taste of what’s to come… ahhhhhh, how I love summer! Al and Jake went out into the bay with the boat today and reported that it was just perfect out there as well.
Word is, tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous too! Overall, this has been one of the nicest April vacations we’ve had in a long time. I’ve gotten to take the girls out quite a bit and it’s nice to shed the sweaters!
A Perfect Sunday….
New England is in the midst of a huge rainstorm and my front yard is like a swamp. The storm cloud is overhead but not just outside. Sometimes I’m just in a funk… I call it the Funk Fog rolling in. I’m in the midst of a storm right now. Just too many things to do to catch up with in work, and the day to day grind is getting to me. (Note to self: Don’t fall down the stairs and get a back injury that puts you out of work for 6 weeks and still have to get the dreaded Alternate Assessment done on time.) I’ve got lots on my mind, feeling fat, and it’s raining… At least Chloe doesn’t mind the storm..
