Random Thoughts on Life

I know it's been a while since I've posted.  Life has been extremly crazy for me lately, so here's some random thoughts to keep you (the few who have asked where my blog posts are) at bay =)
  • My billing supervisor at work left the end of December.  She accepted another job closer to home.  Therefore, while waiting on a new person to start, I've been doing her job.  It's crazy hard doing two full-time jobs in only 40-45 hours a week!
  • Ellie is like another child at times.  She's so demanding of our time.  Our other two dogs were not like that at all.  Well, it's either that, or because we didn't have kids, we didn't notice!
  • If anyone knows how to get a dog to quit jumping, I'd appreciate any tips.  We've tried the "knee to the chest" thing when she jumps, but it just makes her jump more!
  • Nixon has the worst balance ever.  Last week, he tripped and fell into a door at school.  He got a big gash on his forehead, but it didn't slow him down any.
  • We went to our first Hurricanes game on Monday.  A guy at work gave us some tickets, which were great by the way, and we had so much fun!  Landon is obssessed with hockey now, but he was upset that they didn't win when we saw them because "he wanted them to win."
  • Landon loves playing basketball.  I think baseball is still his favorite, but he loves that he has practice on Wednesday and games on Saturday.  That means that he gets to go twice a week to play!
  • Still no word on the house.  The latest news is that the foreclosure process is started.  We won't have any other news until at least next week sometime. 
  • This past week has gotten me ready for Spring!  I'm so ready to go to the pool again!
  • I think I've gained a little of my weight back.  It's crazy how stress affects my eating habits.  Some people don't eat when they get stressed, but that's definitely not me!
  • Nixon is still pottying pretty good.  He'll go if you take him, but he still doesn't know when he needs to go.  That's okay, small steps!
I think that's about it for now..you all should be pretty caught up with what's going on in our world.  Nothing too exciting, just normal, everyday life around here, which is a blessing!

Our dog like the knee/chest thing too. To her, that's a cue for more playing!
