Monday - Yuck!

Well it's Monday. 
Almost finished with the day as work goes.  Had a great weekend though.  Friday after work went home with my flowers from Mark . He got home about 6 or so, brought us some trinkets of course the kids were ecstatic.  We went and caught a bite to eat and went to Kmart.  Saturday I did NOT work overtime - that was nice!  Hung out with the family day.  Mark and I had bowling in the evening.  Didn't bowl all that exciting, Mark bowled a 190 though.  Stopped at Pete's Garage for a drink and then went home.  Sunday was Miley's first vet appointment.  Monday we were at PetSmart and weighed her and she weighed 15.0lbs, her Vet is the one at PetSmart and we weighed her again (same scale) on Sunday and she weighed 16.6lbs.  Getting bigger already!!  We all went back to the house and laid around and napped, just was lazy and it was wonderful!  Mark took the kids and I to BD's Mongolian BBQ for dinner - YUMMMM!  So yes all in all it was a wonderful weekend! 
 But with all that it brings us back to Monday - BLAH!

Anniversary Flowers

Well my husband is home! Got home last night... brought back some souvenirs for the kids and I. It is so good to have him back! I don't like missing him. Here is a pic of the beautiful flowers he had sent to my work.

Long Night

Well today is Mark and I's 4th wedding anniversary and boy do I still love that man! He is still away from training, coming home tomorrow and I can't wait! I have missed him. It is kinda boring without him around the house.

Well I tried to have Miley sleep downstairs in her crate... NOT ready for that! She woke me at 2am at 4am and at 5:30am! So she WILL be sleeping back in my room tonight! Poor puppy would just cry and cry. The bell seems to be working though - nice! Accidents are less and less. She even made it in her crate ALL day while we were at work and school without ANY accidents! YAY!

Got work to do!

New Puppy

New Puppy
Originally uploaded by Mel Brown Photography
Okie dokie people we have had the puppy since Friday at 4pm. I picked her up at the airport and brought her home. She is just too cute and we have been loving on her a lot! House training is going so-so, could go better but could be MUCH worse. She seems to be sleeping through the night now, so that is a bonus! She woke up the first 2 nights but then since has slept through until morning - that's nice! I have come to realize with this house training thing that I don't think I am training her at this point but training me! I am bound and determined to get this puppy trained asap though! I have been taking her out every 20-30 minutes, unless she's napping. We are trying the bell trick, friends of ours swear by it and even gave us a bell - thank you Wylie family!

Mark left for training for work on Sunday afternoon. They had to drive through some of the snow blizzard we had that day, but their training is in Indianapolis, so once they got out a little way the snow was gone. Good for them! But not for me! I waited until Monday and went and snow blowed. I did the driveway, sidewalks... I did good too! Too bad the damn plows plowed the end of my driveway Monday night late. Oh well!

Lucky for me I had a nice long weekend... worked some overtime on Saturday. But I was off Monday for President's Day and took Tuesday off to be with the kids (they were on winter break). I loved having the break away from work, but after 3 days straight of being with my kids I realize why I am NOT a stay-at-home-mom! I am definitely not cut out for that! LOL

Ok well back to work!

Late Night!

Ok so hubby had me up way to late last night!  We were going through top songs in the 1990's.  Brought back sooo many memories.  As a result this morning I have Crash Test Dummies - Mmmmm Mmmm Mmmmm stuck in my head!  Lots of fun though! 

Tonight we have some shopping to do.  Our new addition is flying in from Arkansas!  Woo hoo!  After work Mark, the kids, and I are heading to Pet Smart to stock up on puppy supplies!  If all goes as planned I will get to post some pics of Miley tomorrow evening.  Yay! 

Short post yes I to get some work done!

Playin in the snow

Here is a cute one of the kids...they used the black thing to fill up with snow for the snowmans bottom. Though it didn't work out well... when Dad put the middle on it broke the bottom. :( All that work and all they got was some pictures LOL

Just another Wednesday

Nothing new and exciting has happened lately... working on doing a new advertisement for some Senior pictures. Hoping to get some of those last-minute-seniors for 2011!

Valentines Day was just another day, we worked and ran kids. Though Mark brought home some beautiful flowers - always appreciated!! Love that man! Kids recieved alot of Valentines and Candy, obviously that makes them happy!

Had a great Sunday with Mark and the kiddos, they played in the snow for a while. That was great since they have been driving us crazy with all of their pent up energy!! They had a blast until the snowman's eyes would stay in... then they came in for hot cocoa.

Ta Ta for now!

Been a while!

I started this blog and then forgot about it. New found friend at work showed me hers and sparked my interest to start blogging on mine. Life is going well... loving the new house, kids are healthy, still in love with the hubby... what more can I ask for?

Well the hubby made me totally old recentely... traded in my Saturn Vue for a Dodge Caravan... yes I just said van! I like it though... roomy and the kids LOVE it! Funny the stigma I have with them, the idea of me driving a mini-van CRAZY! I talked alot of shit about them in the past so I expected WAY more teasing than I received!

This friday we are getting our puppy. We have decided her name is Miley. She is a Mastiff... at 6 weeks old she was 10lbs 12oz! Here is a pic of our new puppy... we are so excited to meet her this Friday.Speaking of this Friday... lucky for Mark. He's going on training for a week. Leaving next Sunday night and coming back on Friday. So he will miss the first week of us having a puppy and and even sadder - our anniversary. Our 4th wedding anniversary I'll be spending it at work for the day and then in the evening with 2 kids and a puppy. Kinda sad. But glad the hubby is getting more training for work.

Well Sangria is getting to me (Yay!) I am going to say farewell for now!
