Snicker Doodle

We have a 1 1/2 year old miniature dachshund/poodle mix named Snicker Doodle (Snickers for short). Since we got married shes been living with my inlaws because our landlords don’t allow pets on the premises, and this was the only place available at the time. So until we find a pet friendly home, she has to stay with nanny & papaw, lol.

Well, about 2 months ago, my M-inlaw took her for her checkup (we were out of town) and we told her beforehand that they will tell her to stop feeding her table scraps, because not only does it make her fat, it could make her really sick. And like I told her, they did, they said no table scraps, she needs to lose a few lbs, blahblahblah. They got better about feeding her and she’d lost the weight she needed too….

Then yesterday they decide to give her a hotdog…. ugh. Guess what. That 50 cent hotdog cost me $100 in vet bills today. She was vomiting, and had horrible diarhhea… my poor puppy. 🙁

They gave her antibiotics through an iv, and gave her a camel hump. A camel hump is when they need to get an animal hydrated, but can’t because they vomit the fluids instead. So they take an iv, stick it underneath the dog’s skin and the water drips in slowly making a water pouch, just like a camel hump. It’s kinda gross actually, but it made her feel better! I have to keep her on a strict diet this weekend and next week, and hopefully after that she’ll be back to her old self!

Maybe the inlaws will finally realize that dogs are supposed to eat DOG food and humans are supposed to eat HUMAN food.

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
I Peter 5:6-7

My Future

For any of you that actually read my daily ramblings you know that I want to go to school to be a teacher. A kindergarten teacher to be exact. I still want to pursue this dream, but I’m also thinking about putting it off until after we have children and they are in school. It would take a lot of endurance for me to push myself to go back to school then, but I have some options I could pursue until I get to that point. I would love to be a sonogapher or radiographer. I think it’s a really amazing job, you get to meet a number of diverse people… .and with sonography you get to see the first images of a new life! They have a career path for each career at the community college where we are planning to move, so I figure if I can get that done I would have a good career to start out with. Have children (My dad wants 4 grandbabies, LOL) during this time, possibly take a few classes to get my elementary ed. degree started, and once all of our children are in school, I could go back to school also and get my degree. I think it sounds like a plan :).

I’ve been thinking about that a lot today because I just feel like what I’m doing is such a waste of my time. I feel like I’m not being pushed to my full academic ability, and that drives me NUTS! All I do is sort things, organize things and type up documents. Anyone with a basic computer knowledge that can read and write could do this job. Simple as that!

Anyways, those are my thoughts for the day!

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.”
Psalm 32:8

Kindness Can Go a Long Way…

It’s days like these that make me appreciate who I am, and what I do. Being a receptionist sucks to say the least. I get bullied and cursed at for things that the lawyers do, I get mean looks when the lawyers take FOREVER to greet their clients…. but then you have those few people that just bless you more than they know. I had one of those today, he was such a sweetheart. He was an elderly man, a little overweight with glasses, a trucker’s hat, flannel shirt and a mountain man beard. Typical elderly man of this area I guess you could say. He just sat there and talked and talked about life, and how hard it was but then he stopped and said, “But you know what, God Blesses me in so many ways… I have beautiful grandchildren, friends that love me, and I get to meet beautiful sweet people like you who show they care without even knowing me.” He made my heart melt, he was such a wonderful man and person. He also made sure that I know to slow down! Live my life and enjoy it, because it goes by way to fast. I think we should all remember that, and that sweet old man who appreciates the kindness of a stranger.

“12Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
Colossians 3:12-13

Tired… Exhausted…

This woman will NOT stop calling. She started calling at 8:30am thinking she was calling her mom, which ofcourse is not right considering this is a law office. Anyways, she just keeps calling back and keeps calling back, this has been going on for 2 hours straight! Luckily, I have caller id 🙂 Oh look… she’s calling again. UGH!

Well, today is finally Wednesday, happy hump day! I like Wednesdays, it means you’re half way through the week and two days away from the weekend! Justin is working a late shift tonight, so I’ll have to go to Walmart and Aldi by myself to do the grocery shopping. That might sound silly, but I never go grocery shopping by myself, my husband LOVES to buy groceries! Haha!

I think I’m getting worse about rambling, these posts seem to get more random every day! Sorry about that.

Anyways, apparently every year at the beginning of summer the lawyers at our firm plan a picnic for the staff. Fried chicken, with covered dishes that we’re all supposed to bring. Well, I’ve told them over and over again that I won’t be able to go, because it’s on a Saturday and I’m starting a night/wknd job this summer… and they are NOT good about giving you days off. Besides that, I don’t really want to go, I don’t really get along with the people here, and I honestly wouldn’t mind NOT being friends with them. That sounds awful, I know, but AGADAGWEGH!

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41:10


Popular…. you’re gonna be popular!
I’ll teach you the proper poise
When you talk to boys
Little ways to flirt and flounce
I’ll show you what shoes to wear
How to fix your hair
Everything that really counts

To be popular!

I love that song, it’s so much fun to sing….. except that it’s STUCK in my head. If you haven’t read the book or heard the soundtrack…. check it out! WICKED!

Anyways, so Justin and I watched Little People, Big World last night, along with Jon & Kate Plus 8… LOVE those shows! The dad from LPBW gets on my nerves though, I really don’t know how that woman lives with him! He just goes overboard and DOESN’T stop… its ridiculous!

J&K Plus8 is an awesome show by the way, I love watching those children grow up and watching each of them develop into their own person and personality. I’ve seen a lot of boards online talking about how much they hate Kate and how mean she is to their husband… ugh it gets on my nerves! What would you do if you had 8 children? You can tell that J&K are in love, and yes she fusses at him and yes she scolds him…. but if she didn’t, that might be the one moment he’s not paying attention and something bad happens. You have to think about these things. They have to work together to keep those kids safe! Justin and I were talking about having kids and what we would do if we ended up with multiples…. yikes!

Justin wants to have 2 maybe 3 kids, I would love 4 kids, but I don’t think that will ever happen! There wasn’t really a point to this post except to take a break from what I’m doing at work! Hope everyone has a fantastic day 🙂 !
