Sunday Salon: All About That Dog

 

Yes, I'm late again today.  That will probably be the way it will be forever.  Gone are the days of organization.  Oh well.

This was a pretty normal week.  Holiday hair cut (after the parties LOL), one doctor appointment, and a Polish feast to celebrate the end of my Polish class.  I will be re-enrolling again in January though since I'm still useless.  A little more shopping, wrapping, and getting my mom's house ready for their arrival tomorrow.

But the real focus has been the puppy.  It's all about the puppy.  The breeder contacted me mid-week and told me there was a National Dog Show here in Orlando that we could attend, meet the puppies' "nanny", as well as some of the other dogs and breeders.  We went Friday and today, and it was a blast.  If any of you have ever seen the movie "Best of Show", well, there you have it.  We also got our weekly e-mail with pictures.  Resign yourself to these updates.  We are like new parents.      





On the reading front, I finished nothing!  Ha!  I made progress with "Monster" by Steve Jackson, a true crime novel about a serial murderer.  (I know, I am such a creeper.)  On audio I continue to listen to "Empty Mansions" by Bill Dedman, which is fascinating non-fiction about a reclusive heiress.

Starting tomorrow, I will start posting my favorites lists for 2014, starting with print Fiction and Non-Fiction on Monday, Graphic Novels on Tuesday, and audios on Wednesday. It's more work than I've done on this blog in ages!  It has definitely been a slower year than most on all fronts.

Not much left of this Sunday, but it still may include a nap and some reading.  Just have to get my comfies on...

These people at work are attempting to dump work on me right before I leave for break. For weeks I have been waiting on other people and now they are starting to contact me back. I want to be outta here.

The pup! I can tell you are excited to have some new blood in the house and one that will love you to death and be so darn happy every time he sees you. Not like our kids. LOL.

I didn't even drink this weekend and I so needed it after the mall. My son has been working on a special project/gift for the girlfriend and my garage is wrecked! That is where the wine stash is and I literally could not get to it. It was tragic. Instead, I had a 900 calorie Hot Caramel Spiced Cider from $tarbucks. I had to drink a gallon of water afterward to get the sugar outta me.

It's finally your time. :-) I'm so happy for you, Sandy. I know you must be impatient having to wait until you bring that cutie home. :-)

Bahaha, I love Best in Show so much. I can't imagine how fun it would be to attend a real dog show.
