This has been the craziest last few days that I've had in a long while. I'm SO relieved to be sitting here writing now, a brand new box of chocolate-covered pretzels beside me. I just bought them thinking they would make a good snack to eat while Jon and I watch Chopped tonight (our weekly routine, gotta love it - we are so boring!), but they just kept yelling at me while I was unloading the groceries, so of course I had to open them.
I might have to get another box before tonight. These are amazing!
So...drumroll please...we bought a car! Yay! God is so good - He blessed us with exactly what we need and much more. I have to admit, there were several times over this past month when I was convinced we would NEVER find another car, but God is so faithful. I hate that I'm so faithless.
That was only part of the craziness! I also interviewed and trained and started work these past few days. I'm now working very part-time as a before-school care assistant. Which basically means that I hang out with a bunch of fun, hilarious kids and get paid for it. It's so nice - it's such a great job! I work right by my house and I have loads of time to write still.
And, my hairstylist squeezed me in (yay! Thank you!) so I don't look like Shaggy McShaggerson, like I do in this picture. I haven't taken a picture since the haircut, so I'll put one up sometime this week.
What have you guys been up to in the last few days?
I'm trying my hand at a crockpot pot roast tonight. We'll see what happens - roasts were on sale at the grocery store. I'm a bit nervous. I followed a recipe by Paula Deen almost exactly, and her food always looks so good. I'll try to get some pics of it tonight and let you know what I think!
Does anyone out there have a Siberian husky who is also blowing his/her coat???? I had NO idea that so much fur could come off of one dog! I took a picture of one grooming session - Note this is one brushing out of about 15!!
That is SO much hair - and I brushed at least that, if not more, off of him again yesterday! OY.
Here he is today. I think he's just as tired of shedding as we are of him shedding. Such a sad puppy face. He was only making it because I was holding a bone under the camera. Kody is one of those dogs who puts on a whole depressed/sad/these-people-never-feed-me show while he's begging. Notice in both pictures he's got a bone. They've become like his pacifiers.
If you have any suggestions, please let me know! In the meantime, I hope you are having a fabulous day!
