Sometimes it's hard being a puppy. I mean, you have to fit in naps sometimes, and how are you supposed to protect your bones from your little sister? Duke thought it'd be best to sleep right by both of them so Rissy couldn't get to them.
Inspired by my photography class I'll be starting on Feb. 11th, I've decided to post a picture a day in February to my blog. I probably won't remember to post each day, but I'll make sure to put up 28 separate pictures I've taken throughout the month. Hopefully I'll find more subjects to photography other than Duke & Rissy!
Just thought I'd update everyone a bit on what's been going on around here. My parents were down visiting this weekend and helped us move an outlet in our bathroom and also helped us chop wood. I feel like we got a ton done and also got to meet up with Granny and Gramps for dinner on Saturday night. We went to a local fish house "The Depot", and it was SO good! We all had a fun time.
I have started my "diet" again. I hate that word, but at this point, who am I kidding! I let myself go and now I have to fix that. SO, last year I lost a total of 20 pounds then took a break from June to December. Now that my sister is getting married in July, I want to lose the last of my chubbiness. I've lost another 4 pounds since the beginning of January. I now only have 9 more pounds until my final goal weight. It seems so much more attainable now that it's only 9! Hopefully I can continue after that but I'm not going to put pressure on it. If it happens, then it will happen. I hate the fact that I gain weight in my belly. Why can't I just have like one fat toe or something? Anyway, I will do it. I mean, I assume I'll get married one day and I don't want to be a fat bride. And I assume I'll have kids one day and I don't want to be a giant pregnant lady. SO that's my motivation. I can do it!
Rissy and Duke are as naughty as ever. Rissy threw up 4 times yesterday. Poor thing. Her hips seem to be doing good. Actually probably feeling better than she has in awhile. And Duke, well, Duke is Duke. Getting stingier by the day. Love them though! I think our cat Diesel wants a kitty sister so I'm working on that. Trying really hard to convince Colin. I'm going to be one of those crazy cat ladies one day with like 52 cats, and Colin will have like 37 dogs. Haha.
In a couple weeks we're meeting my family in Canon Beach, and we can't wait to go! We have a house rented out for 3 whole nights! This weekend also lies on a big NASCAR race and Superbowl. Should be a great time!!! Hope everyone is having a great 2010 so far!
Last weekend Colin and I took his nephew, Brayden, bowling at the local bowling alley. They have $1 bowling Sunday mornings and Tuesdays so it's really affordable. Anyway, Brayden is 2 1/2 and has never been before so we thought it would be fun to take him. Let me tell you, that little boy is STRONG! I was shocked he was able to pick up a 12 lb ball and use it! He loved the first game but he got a little bored during the 2nd. We shot these pics with my new camera, not bad right? :)
Love, Love, LOVE this picture!
You see this look? (On their mouth) From the time Brayden was a baby, there's this look that Colin and him have that's identical to one another. This is the closest picture I think I'll get to it.
