A girl being walked by her dog

This is my youngest daughter being walked by one of our crazy dogs today.  It’s funny, Lily (the dog) used to seem super crazy-crazy, but with the addition of Chloe she doesn’t seem so nuts anymore, rather she seems like an old cranky lady.  I guess that’s what happens when a younger woman moves in your territory.  I would love if the Dog Whisperer would come spend a couple of hours with us, we really need it.  Maybe a visit from the Nanny too.  Heck, while we are it, that Remodeling show crew too!


Dreaming of a walk

This is Chloe.  She is our newest dog we added to the family in December to keep our other dog, Lily, company because our other dog, Bailey, had passed away last summer.  Chloe is a puppy and a bit ditzy.  I work from home and she is under foot most of the day.  Today I thought it was so cute that she was sitting at the dining room table looking out the window, I can only imagine she was dreaming of a walk.

A photo a day…

Each morning, or at least I try each morning, to take a picture of my girls (sorry one is blurry today).  Last year I did great, only missing a few days when I traveled for work–click here— this year hasn’t been as good, but it isn’t terrible.  (This Year)  I always post them on Facebook, I think family and friends far away enjoy it.  I do get some comments such as, “I can’t believe you make them do that”, “why do you do that”, “are you nuts?”.  In the beginning, my oldest didn’t love it.  In fact I tried one year, and she made me stop 1/2 way through.  But now it is habit.  My youngest acts like she loves it.  I think someday they will enjoy looking back and seeing these pictures.  I know I do.  I love them so much, and I always hope they know that.  They are my world.  They are the reason I breath.  They are my perfect, wonderful angels!

Quiet Superbowl Sunday–just the way I like it!

It was a quiet, but fabulous, Superbowl Sunday!  Milkman and I spent the day running some errands and fixing a few things at his house, then we settled in for the game.  Neither one of us really were excited by the games; he wanted the Giants to lose and I wanted to see the Madonna half time show.  My Superbowl needs were met!

Hockey with friends makes for a great Saturday!

A much-needed relaxing and awesome weekend!  The past week was pretty stressful so it was awesome to just have some fun!  Milkman (more on that nickname later, but the short story is that he is my boyfriend) and I went to the Tampa Bay Lightning game and met up with a good friend of mine from work, Kim.  We also got to meet up with his kids there.  Tampa Bay won and a good time was had by all!

A hockey game, what a perfect situation for the February Photo a Day which was stranger!  I think my picture qualifies since there were a couple of thousand strangers around me!

This is much harder than I thought!

This photo a day thing has been much harder than I thought!  Today was “hands” and I had envisioned a plan for this in my head, but my head never seems to be with me when I need it.  I had thought a great hands pic would be to take a pic of me and my girls hands together.  Sounds great, right?  Well, I forgot this morning, and I forgot this afternoon when they stopped by, and now they are off to their dad’s for the weekend.  Crap–this photo a day wasn’t supposed to be this stressful!

So instead, I took a shot of my hands typing.  It seems like that is all I really do anyways.  I work from home for a virtual school so I am always on the computer, perhaps too much.  I can see I am getting older from my hands.  A woman’s hands show many things.  Hands show your age.   They show if you are single.   I think we forget to take care of our hands, perhaps I will do that tonight!
