I've been remiss (and exhausted)

I am so sorry to have been absent for a full week. I started my new job this week and it is intense. A lot of hours and a lot of learning to do in a relatively short period of time. Last night I fell asleep on the couch at 8 o'clock. When Honey came home from work, he had a hell of a time waking me. I think I may have mumbled something about being so tired; but I am sure it came out more like "m sss trd".
So . . . let's catch up.
  • Many many thanks to all who wished me a happy birthday. It meant the world to me to receive so many kind wishes.

  • It was a happy one indeed. We accidentally went on a 12 mile kayaking trip. The kayaking was on purpose, but the 12 miles . . . not so much. By the way, if anyone ever asks you how long it might take one to kayak on a mostly still river for 12 miles - the answer is roughly 8 hours. But it was fun none-the-less. And I do note how accomplished I felt afterward.

  • Ollie our new boy is starting to fit in just fine. Izzy is no longer exhibiting her passive aggressive protests; and I have even caught them playing a couple of times.

  • The new job so far is both difficult and stressful.

  • I still like the new job better than my sucky sucky old job.

  • The week that I have been missing from my blog is also a week's worth of missing workouts and housecleaning. This is not good. I am hoping that the dishes become so disgusted with my laziness that they start to clean each other.
Here are some photos from the past 6 days. Enjoy!
Ollie, Izzy & Bean - my loves

The gorgeous new boots Honey got me for my birthday. :)

Just in case you needed another image to recognize the beauty of my new boots.

I love how Oliver sleeps with his legs thrown back like that. So cute!


  1. Is Oliver a Corgi? btw, your boots are gorgeous!! 12 miles of kayaking.. wow... how are your arms?

  2. I HATE starting a new job; so many things to learn so quickly! Too bad I'm starting a new one every couple of months...
    I'm glad it's going well, though!

  3. learning a new job isn't easy but just think, you'll start again tomorrow and it won't be as hard as the one that you just had. a girl can't have enough sassy boots :) have a great week!

  4. Wow, I love kayaking, but that is some adventure!


I love comments. I want to know what you think. Unless you are going to be mean to me - in which case, thanks but no thanks.
