thoughts on thursday.

  • traffic was bananas this morning!  i live just a few minutes from one of the many naval bases in our area.  operation solid curtain {or whatever they're calling it} is causing huge traffic backups.  good thing there's more than one way to get around this city. 
  • yesterday was my 9th wedding anniversary.  adam took a half-day off from work. the kids had early dismissal.  the four of us celebrated by having a low-key lunch at margie & ray's
  • i also spent $$$ on my car yesterday.  ugh.  but, i gotta keep my '01 nissan altima, emmy, running {jules named her!}.  she's purring like a kitten now.  i'm so glad i finally had my {dry rotted & cracked} alternator belt replaced...among other things.
  • we're getting a new boston terrier puppy this weekend.*  we pick him up on saturday.  he's red.  he was sired by the same dog as frisco.  his name will be buxton.
  • the flu visited our home.  thankfully, malia headed back to school yesterday after being sick since last thursday.
  • i have yet to take a sub job.  i'm still wondering how to make it work.  so far, it hasn't.
  • i ordered a pre-made blog design yesterday from designer blogs.  it should be loaded in a week.  if you check them out & decide to get something, please let them know i sent you.  thanks.
  • my sister will be in town next month.  i really cannot wait to see her.
  • i woke up this morning seriously thinking it was friday...only to be disappointed when i realized that it's really only just thursday.

* i hate to put this out there, but please spare me with the "you should have gone with a rescue" lecture.  my husband & i are going with what is best for our family.  while i appreciate the passion that some folks have about rescues, please be respectful of my decision.  i don't shove my opinions down your throat, so please don't shove your opinions down mine.  {for those that are curious, YES, i caught some flack on twitter because we decided NOT to go with a rescue.  to each, his own.  if you don't like it, then i kindly ask you to stop reading/following my blog.}

I think it's kinda cool Frisco & Buxton will be real brothers.

As for the traffic, Ocean about killed me yesterday. I just want to stay home and avoid it all!

Yay for new puppies!!!

Both our dogs are rescues, but, that's what worked best for us. My parents dogs are from breeders and they are great dogs! I think as long as you find the right dog for your family, it doesn't matter where s/he comes from. You're giving a pup a loving home--that's what matters!

Happy 9th Anniversary!

I’m glad you liked the name Emmy :)

I’m so sorry you had to read negative feedback about getting your puppy. To each their own and do not feel bad about it. Congrats to you on getting a new pup! I can’t wait to see pics.

Yay for a new blog design and seeing your sister soon!

Girl, did you get rid of the private blog? Also, tell people who are talking smack about the dog to suck it. God, can't people worry about something BIG>!>!>!

I think it's crazy that people would have such strong opinions about pets...(can you tell I'm not a pet person?)

1. So glad my commute doesn't take me by a base. The radio alone was terrifying on Wednesday!

2. Happy belated anniversary! I need to check out that restaurant with J one weekend. You've mentioned it before and it sounds so good!

3. YAY for your new little puppy! I can't wait for pictures!!!

People give you a hard time for not adopting a rescue dog? SCREW THEM!

As long as you're a loving pet owner, who cares where the pup comes from?
