I's a slacker

Wow, Feb 22nd was the last time I posted? Shit.

So, what's new, you ask? Not a whole lot, hence my lack of posting. Let's see here...

Work-three weeks 'til spring break, yay! I took the Weds and Thurs off that week, so I'll only have to be in the clinic Mon and Tues and then have five days off. It's going to be glorious, especially since...

WE'RE GETTING A PUPPY! Probably in the next month, but not 'til after I/we get our taxes done. We'd like to time it up with my mini-vaca, so hopefully that'll work out. We were thinking of doing invisible fencing, but I go back and forth b/t thinking it's a good idea and feeling bad for the poor doggy when it gets zapped :( So, we'll see about the fencing. It's definitely going to be a shelter/rescue doggy, probably some sort of beagle and or lab mix...preferably lab, as beagles can be major food whores. But either way, we'll be happy.

What else? Hmmm...week 5 of Pig training is pretty much in the bag. This week was 5k race weekend (it was supposed to be next weekend, but I couldn't find any 5ks in I moved it to today). This means no long run this week, YAAAY! I did the Flannagan's 5k, which I did with Alli and Julie 2 years ago while they were training for the 1/2 Pig...and actually got a new PR! 24:55-HOLY SHIT! I am more than thrilled with my time, seeing as this was the first race I've actually done by myself, meaning without Alli or one of my friends dragging me along. So woohoo! Next week's long run is 6 miles, which is a distance I've done before so I don't anticipate it being horrible. After that, I get into the 7, 8, 9, 10 mile runs, which is farther than I've ever gone so it's probably going to suck big fat donkey balls. Oh well, c'est la vie.

Things have been pretty quiet around here-Jason just started bartending at the restaurant he's been serving at, and is already making great money (more than he made bartending at the place he used to work at). So that makes him happy and therefore makes my life easier :P The only thing that sucks is that he's now working more nights, and as we all know I work days. So we don't see each other all that much (awake, anyway) during the week. But we've been through that before, so it's not so traumatic.

OMG I love HGTV. I may not get off the couch all day.

Beagles Rock!

But, an invisible fence may not contain a beagle. After all they are a nose on four paws.

They are rule by the nose and yes are very food orientated. But who can resist those big brown eyes and velvet soft ears.

My beagle is name Molly and she's 9 yrs old. She's a doll!

If you get a beagle, please take a peek at the Happy Tails Beagle List. It's a great way to meet other beagle owners.

Have fun finding your new dog.

Some rescue groups (I know the Sheltie groups) won't let you bring the dog home unless you have a standard touchable fence. So, you may want to check out the place you're getting the dog before you choose your fence. Enjoy the new puppy!

I admire you for your running. I don't even run to dessert. :P Good for you!!!
