Now that's impressive.

I can't believe I went 2 whole months without posting. Man, I am NOT good at blogging, LOL! But I think I've come up with a better way to get back into it. But I can't share cuz I haven't worked it all out yet. So yea. You must wait.

In the best news ever, I found my wedding dress. I'm completely in love with, and obsessed with it, which I think is probably a good sign. I think people will think that it's very "me", but will also be very pleasantly surprised. I made a LO for it for the wedding album, but I can't share it here on the off chance that Jordan will read this blog (I don't know if he actually does or not, lol). But if you're feelin frisky, you can always go check out my galleries and find it :)

In the saddest news ever, we lost our family dog on friday. Scooby was so very old, especially for a large breed dog. 14 years old for a Greyhound is probably similar to being 100. His arthritis kept getting worse, and last week he stopped eating for a few days. Anytime Scooby doesn't eat, it's a major problem. He was the biggest food hound you've ever met in your life, so for him to not eat means something is really wrong wtih him. He didn't get his meds for 3 days, so his arthritis flared up horribly. He did a little better friday morning, but in the end, he would never really get any better. He would only get worse and his suffering would be prolonged. So it was decided that we needed to let him go. It was probably the hardest thing ever for us to do, but we know it was the RIGHT thing to do, and that's what matters most. He's not in pain anymore, he's suffering has ended, and he's free. He's up there right now looking down at us as happy as can be I bet. He led the best life ever for 12 good years, what more could you ask for?! Friday was really hard but I'm ok with it all now. Just one of those things where you think you're ok with something, and you think you've come to terms with it, and then it actually comes, and you're not ok with it because you can't believe that he's going to be gone and you never get to see him again. But I will see him again.
Ok, enough rambling. Here's a LO I made on friday night to help cope with it all. I really love how it turned out.


My boss is on vacation this week, and we're only working 3 days, and tomorrow I'm out on inspections. Thank goodness it's an easy week. The past few have been a combination of boring and obnoxious. Working for the state seems to have more cons than pros. They drive me INSANE. They always want something different, and then are bitter when you didn't even know they wanted that, because they never told you, and then they get mad at your for being "behind schedule". The politics behind it all drive me insane. The only plus side to this, is that I'm learning a TON, and even getting to do my own design work. I check almost everything with my boss, but it's going to be really cool when I can say I designed this bridge replacement in it's entirety, by myself. (Yes, I will tell you where it is so you can avoid driving over it, Ha, Ha, Ha.)

I'm going to post again in a last ditch effort to get enough rewards points for a 40% discount at SSD. My mojo went MIA a few times this month, so I'm much farther away then I usually am. Of course I didn't get to scrap on saturday, or sunday, but whatever. I'll take 30%, but that 40% is just too sweet to miss out on :)

I think that's it. I'm feeling super sleepy today so I'm gonna go get some more tea.
Have a happy monday!
