Catch Up

Today I am going to forgo all the pretty pictures and do a bit of a life catch up. It has been a little busier than normal around here, which is a welcome change. I started training to be an adviser at the local community college. I am also scheduled to teach two classes there in the fall. The struggle I am in now is that there is another job possibility which could  prevent me from teaching. I applied for a Veteran's Affairs position and got a call back for an interview two days later. Great feeling right? The only problem is that I found out the pay is WAY less than I thought it was. It would be almost the same amount of money to teach/advise part time as it would to work there full time. I think the job would be a good fit, and I am terrified to turn anything down in this terrible economy. I have my interview next week and will hopefully have more clarity after that.

Operation We-Want-A-Dog is in full effect. We went back to the SPCA to look at a dog I fell in love with last week. He had already been adopted, but we saw another dog that we both really liked. She isn't available till this weekend but I may go back and see her again today. Hopefully, this weekend we will be a dog-owning family.

For all my dog owner readers, what were the few days after you brought your dog home like? We have been reading everything we can find, but I would love to hear about y'all's experience too. 


  1. My dog was a little bitty puppy when we brought him home. He would cry at night until we got a kennel and started crate training him. (The first night, I slept on the floor with him, so he wouldn't cry.) I remember lots of poo on the floor! Haha! but also lots of playing and laughter.*

  2. my hubby and I have been doing dog research for when he gets back! he really wants one that he can train to run with us. :)
