2 months later…

Wow. I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since my last post (sounds like an introduction at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting). My workload has been insane, which I’m not complaining about. But it did take away most of my spare time, causing me to fall way behind on so many things (e.g. this blog).

Other than work being uberbusy, we also became the proud parents of a new little puppy. Meet Rusty…

We’ve had Rusty for about one month now. My father found a litter of 5 pups abandoned on the side of the road. We had no plans of getting a dog for the kids anytime in the near future, but as soon as Simon laid eyes on Rusty, it was over. He was in love. So I called my husband and told him I was bringing a dog home.

It’s amazing how much more chaotic life becomes when you introduce a puppy into your life. Especially when you have two young boys who just can’t get enough of him. But we are all adjusting and getting into a groove.

We had no idea what kind of dog we now had living in our house. But after a couple of guesses from friends and strangers, we had it narrowed down. And then a trip to the vet confirmed it. He’s a mutt, but the dominant breed seems to be Catahoula Leopard Dog. Then we were told to expect him to weigh 70-90 lbs. Say what!?!

Even with all this craziness, we have managed to get a few small things accomplished around the house, so expect a few updates very soon.
