Nope, Not Dead

Well, hello! My goodness, it's been such a long time since I've written. Not because I haven't wanted to or because I haven't had anything to say - that would be crazy - but because...

You guessed it - no time!

Let me give you a quick update:

Work is nuts. I mean, really nuts. Not only is my job much more involved, but with the economy (gah, that phrase!), I'm not taking any chances. No blogging, no blog reading, very little emailing - you know the drill. I'm trying to be more focused on my job. While it might be less entertaining for you guys, it's a good thing for me.

Our side business is booming, which is great, but it also means that Doug & I don't have a ton of free time. But hey, what else is new...

I went to the doctor on Friday & got the all-clear on that lovely DVT I had in February. Criminy, what an ordeal that has been! I'll probably always have some swelling & discomfort, which I'm not thrilled about...but it sure beats the alternative, so I guess I'll take it with a smile. One of the greatest things about this is that I'm weaning myself off of the blood thinner, & that makes me very happy. Shark Week has been such a bitch on that stuff! Seriously...

Yup, that's big news. But here's the biggest I've got for you:

Meet Truvy Tallulah, our 5 month old Black Lab/Walker Coonhound mix! The above photo was taken the day we brought her home a month ago. (By the way, that's not a beard, it's just the angle.) Anyway, I don't know what in the hell we were thinking, bringing a puppy home, but she's here & life hasn't been the same. More on that another time, but suffice it to say that her nickname is Satan.

She's very cute, though. Here, look:

She looks innocent, but trust me...she's anything but! And she's a lot bigger now, & I think by the time she's finished growing, we're going to have a pony instead of a dog....

Puppyhood is tough, but we're finding comfort in knowing that it doesn't last as long as childhood!

Ok, I'm tired & I want to go to bed. Let's hope Truvy lets me.

It seems many of us are crawling out from under our respective rocks at the same time - and for the same reason. Work really does get in the way of life!

I see my feed has updated on your "Who am I reading" list. Bless your technically savvy heart.

Love the pup!

She's adorable!!! I can't wait to hear about all the trouble she gets in to. That could make for some interesting blog posts.

Glad to see you back online!! Truvy is soooooooo cute . . . but yeah -- she is a lab mix so I feel for ya. Labs are the dumbest dogs by no fault of their own (or maybe the smartest b/c they are so free willed) . . . anyway . . . glad to see ya doin' well!

Yikes I am WAY behind on commenting! Heads pats to Truvy. She is a doll.

OMG-Truvy is a doll, but I can see her being trouble! She has that glint in her eye! I don't know how anyone gets through an entire day of work by doing nothing but work. I probably would have been done with grad school years ago if it weren't for the internet.
