My fiesty Mo-Mo

He was so spunky as a puppy. I always laugh when I watch this video of him. He HATED to be held..... and if he didnt like something you were doing, he always would let you know.

My funny dog

Over Christmas,one day Ricky and I went to the gym. Since the dogs had already walked 5 miles that day I thought that since they had enough energy out they would not get into any trouble. Well, Ricky and walked in and everything looked fine, they were sleeping. I went in the living room and on the floor there was a butter tub (empty). For a second I was trying to remember if I had just thrown out one and maybe Game got that out of the trash(which he is known to do). That was not the case..... it was a brand new tub of butter and I must have left it on the counter after making breakfast that morning. Then I saw a ziplock bag on the floor. And I remembered that that was the bag the I put a fresh loaf of homemade bread in the day before. So, Game had a little bread and butter that day. He was starting to get bad about jumping up and looking around in the kitchen for food. I geuss after discovering what kind of goodies we were holding out on him.
This is a video of us trying to catch him in the act.

project of mine

Something that I just completed.
It is a memory book that I made for Angela (Shea's Mom).
She came to visit back in December.
We all had such a wonderful time,
Ricky was here then too, so we had a house full.
I put it in the mail yesterday.
Now I need a new project. I have a lot of ideas,
but first I desperatley need to finish all
the ones that are in the works now.

I love Wednesdays!!!!

"Hump day" is such a great day for me. First of all it is my first day off each week. I usualy work Saturday thru Wednesday morning at 8:00am.(On average that is a 56 hour work week)
So the last 4 days I have only slept about 4-5 hours each night. I usually feel too giulty to take a nap, because there is so much a have to get done in the hours that I am home.
Anyway... so Wednsday is the day that I long for all week.
Today, I am overwhelmed with ways to spend today. I feel a little creative, my workshop is calling me "Joanne...Joanne..come scrapbook.."
My dogs do not care that it is literally 6 degrees outside (yes, I said 6, as in the number SIX)and they want to walk the trail, so do I but not in this weather.
I really need to clean my house. The snow has been melting all week, so the mud outside is awful and of course there are 8 little muddy paws that track it all in for Mama to clean up.
I do need to do some homework....yuck!
What I love about this day too, I get to just decompress. When I get to go the Prayer Room on Wednesdays it is not like the other days of the week. I need it, I want it! I go to the cafe and read and study for as long as I want, then to the Prayer Room. I can go, giult free, not feeling rushed.
Still there is the beckon of other things that need my attention, but I know that while I am there, that time slot in today, there is for sure nothing more deserving on my attention.

That is my rambling today....nothing very exciting, I guess, but at least I found time to post :)

No time..................

I know it has been FOREVER since I posted anything. This last week or two has been a little on the crazy side. One assignment after another and a paper due almost everyday on something. Things are settling down though............knock on wood!
It has been so long since I have enjoyed reading a book that does not involve school or really had a good quiet time. I am always thinking about what I need to get done. That is the life of a student though.

Here are some things I am working on in my classes....give me your thoughts.
I have 2 papers due on March the 7th.
My English paper is a concept paper, where I have to explain the process of somthing or a system. At first I was going to do the welfare system and gov't, but then I thought that may be a lot of now I am going to do sex education in public schools.
It is something I am kind of excited about researching. I know in South Carolina that they complelty took it out in exchange for teaching obstaining and there are some really amazing results.
My psychology class, the assignment is to write about something that changed the course of your life. My first thought was Jesus :)(sigh) But then I thought maybe try to keep this "surfacey" so now I think I am going to write about becoming a teacher. I can talk about the teachers I had at early age and so on.
So that is my life right now.......blah blah blah............

My Moses is 1 !!!

My Moses turned one on the 30th. This year went by so fast. When I started thinking about getting another dog it was kinda like "are you crazy?" but, I absolutley have no regrets. He is such a joy!!

This was the first day Moses came home......
