Tag Archives: raising a puppy

around these parts…

1 Aug

I’ve had the best intentions of posting more regularly but life has been crazy. Having a puppy in a non-stop job. The minute I walk through the door I become Frank’s bitch. Probably not the way it’s supposed to go but hey, it’s the truth. I’m a first time mom and Frank has me wrapped around his paw. Every time I sit down at my computer to write Frank either tears something up and I have to chase after him, shits, whines so loud I can’t hear myself think, bites my ankle with his needle teeth or just stares at me with the most pathetic eyes.  After a few hours of this I usually give up around six and turn on “Real Housewives Of Orange County”, pour a glass of wine & play with Frank instead. Clearly, I haven’t found my groove yet. This whole puppy thing may have set Brian and I back a few years with the whole baby thing. Thanks, Frank.  Although the experience has made me realize what a strong team Bri and I will be one day with a baby. I’m also madly in love with our new little family. There really is nothing better than when the three of us are hanging out. Our recent favorite activity is cuddling on the couch while watching “House of Cards” while Frank chews his bone.

When I’m not Frank’s bitch I put on my other hat….wedding extroidinar!! My main focus this week is booking our honeymoon and planning our ceremony/vows. Although with our schedules we’ve had a hard time figuring out either- we may just end up giving each other high fives in place of vows and taking a honeymoon to Catalina. Not like there’s anything wrong with Catalina but, compared to Brazil or Madagascar it falls a bit short.

Last night Bri and I decided to get away from Frank and the wedding by going on a mini weekday date night. One that involved pizza, rose wine and fried doughnut balls with nutella. I think this may have to be a new Wednesday night routine because I’m feeling reenergize today! Happy Thursday.
