It’s been over a week since I posted last. Almost two, in fact. I go through waves where one minute I’m super stoked about blogging and have all these great post ideas and then the next minute 11 days have passed and I realize I’ve completely dropped the ball. I don’t have a good excuse. So you’ll just have to settle for some fun news that no one but myself will care about.

We got a puppy!

His name is Logan. I know he looks sad, but that’s just his face. How offended do you think mothers everywhere would be if I said I now know what it’s like to have a newborn? I mean, I don’t sleep, every moment I’m home I’m with him, watching him, and I’ve never been so interested in another creatures… bodily functions. Everyone who’s had a puppy must agree that it’s kind of like having a baby. The beauty of a puppy is I can crate train him at night and he’ll grow out of most of the “baby” stage within a few months, instead of a few years. Nonetheless, I just want a nap.

He is a cute little shit, though. Very sweet, a very good cuddler, and (at least as puppies go) pretty chill. He was one of the biggest of the litter and his dad was ENORMOUS so I think we’ve got a large lab in our future. And I can’t wait. To go for walks, play fetch, go camping and swimming. Becky over at the Vintage Mixer also put together a great post listing some local restaurants that allow dogs on their patios. Most of her picks are closer to the downtown area so I’ll have to find some closer to me, but it’s still good to know where I can take him once he stops flipping out when I put the leash on him.

But for now, at least, I finally have something to blame my grey hairs on.
