A sunny day

What a lovely, sunny day we finally had in my little midwestern town! After being pummeled by winter storm after winter storm, I guess the gods decided we deserved a little break? Of course, there’s still snow on the ground and of course, it’s still below freezing, but I’ll take it. It’s my day off … Continue reading

Well guys. I’m trying to find time to post, I really am. Maybe I’m taking summer break! Yes, that’s it. I’m not slacking off… Not much at least. Anyway, I’m here right now, aren’t I?

One step forward, two steps back

After yesterday’s fabulously informative (and slightly cocky) post on surviving life with multiple furry friends, I just had to share my Facebook status from this morning: I called The Hubs on my way to work to vent and we decided that Chloe’s going to puppy boot camp.

Hawaii bound! I wish.

Well guys, it’s settled. I’m moving to Hawaii! … Okay, I WISH I was moving to Hawaii. I just had the best, most fun weekend of the year and I’m attributing it to the glorious 70-degree weather! I threw open all the windows in the house, vacuumed, swept, mopped, and washed all of the rugs … Continue reading
