New Puppy joins the Family

I did not post all last week because we got a puppy!!! She is adorable.
We had a Boston Terrier, we got him when we were 22-23 I think. We had been living together for 2 years, we did not train him at all (our poor roommates!) and he was this amazing surly old man all the to the end. Now we have 80lb Lab mix, who doesn't realize how big he is. He is well mannered for the most part, we are not super trainers, but he has the basics down.

Turning 40

I'm going to be 40 in like 3 days! I'm supposed to panic right?!

We are often the ones who bend our wants to make the kids or spouse happy. But we are guaranteed two days a year where we can say, "everybody back off, we are eating pizza with pineapples and anything with dark chocolate!".  Nom. Nom. Nom.
