Spring fever.

Charlie passed his obedience class.  With flying colors.  He’s the only student in his class that accomplished the shake and roll over tricks.  I’m not bragging or anything.  Okay, kinda I am.  We had to take the test in front of everyone.  Let’s just say, we were a hard act to follow.  The last person got up to take the test and said, “well, i don’t want to show off or anything” AND LOOKED RIGHT AT ME WHEN SHE SAID IT.  Uhhuh, that’s right, my dog is bad ass.  The thing is, I never realized how competetive I was.  I actually asked the teacher to give my dog a grade.  She said, “we only do passes.  And we believe in ‘no dog left behind’.”  Well, I graded him myself and he got an AAAAAA++.

Anyhoo, now that I have a very obedient dog, it seems like the possibilities are endless.  Especially since it’s March and it got up to 70 today.  Tomorrow, it’s supposed to be even warmer.  I see dog parks, long drives, and brisk walks.

It just so happens that my kids are on spring break right now.  Today, we went to the zoo.  First, we went to the conservatory and took pictures of the pretty plants and flowers.  Can I just say something?  Nature is very sexual.  I got the giggles at like every picture I took.  Here are some:

I mean, right?

Not to mention all of the statues.

And I love it, I really do.  When Spring comes, I get all mystified by the world and how lovely and magical it is.  I know it’s kind of sappy of me, but it tames my cabin fever.

Well, darlings, here’s a picture of my loves of my life:

Oh and speaking of magical, isn’t it crazy and cool that these little beings grew inside my belly?  I know, I know, I’m getting a little weird.  And no, I am not pregnant.  But yes, Spring brings out the baby fever in me.

🙂  Sorry Honey.  Hurry and get that vasectomy!!!

xxoo, ciao, momma

Momma had baby fever.

Yup, it’s true.  I had baby fever so I got a puppy.  We already had a humungo American Bulldog, but he howled all day and I thought, ‘he must be lonely.’  So, with his loneliness and my baby fever, I had an impulse and I went with it.  Of course, there were some rules I set for myself: 1. it had to be a puppy.  We adopted a dog last year that was so naughty we named him snoopdog.  It was awful, with him humping my kids and snapping at our big dog and when he bit my DH and drew blood, we had to give him back.  I feel terrible about it, but my family comes first, ya know?  2. it had to be relatively small.  We live in a small house and one big dog makes enough of a big mess.  3. it had to be non-shedding.  4. yes, I did have a budget restriction, but I am not going to tell you how much that was.  5.  it couldn’t come from a puppy mill.  6.  it had to have some shots.  And then, I found him.
