I had a really great blog post last night...

...But it was interrupted by the puppy. And dinner getting ready. And then my computer died.

And needless to say, it isn't here.

So I'm posting another one instead!

Luna is making me so tired. I've got her all day today by myself (every Wednesday - Mark has class), and it's fairly exhausting. It shouldn't be, because she sleeps most of the day (she's asleep on my feet right now. I'm praying she stays asleep until I hit "Publish Post," at least...) I think the main thing is she's so little, we really can't take her anywhere. No walking (she doesn't walk on a leash yet anyway), clearly she's too small for the dog parks, and she's really not vaccinated enough to be around anyplace with other dogs. Which just about rules out everywhere except for inside, and the (tiny tiny) backyard. So I'm going a little stir-crazy.

I love the puppy stage, don't get me wrong. She naps a lot, so I can get some stuff done while she's doing that, and she's absolutely frickin' adorable, but I really, really wish we could at least go for walks during the day. I never really know what to do with her. She's fine when she's sleepy and cuddly, but when she's playful, I'm sort of at a loss. She doesn't fetch (beagles don't really retrieve intuitively), she's already mastered sit, and she comes when called most of the time, and her attention span is only so long ... So we usually just go outside and I let her dig around in the dirt.

*Sigh* anyway, enough about my puppy.

Chloe, over at My New Life as a Housewife gave me a blog award!

So sweet of her. Here are the rules:

1) Post who gave you this award.
2) State 10 things you like.
3) Give this award to 10 other bloggers.

So, ten things I like...

1) Puppy nap time.
2) The brownies calling to me from the cookie jar.
3) The $15 Starbucks giftcard that my mom sent me today!!!

5) Puppy kisses.
6) Trips to see family (We're going next week to Chattanooga for Mark's birthday.)
7) The Avett Brothers
8) Cooking.
9) My zebra-print flats.

And now, if you'll excuse me ... I have a puppy to attend to :) 


  1. Ooh, thanks for the tag! :) I had total writers block with blogging lately so this will totally help.

    Being a puppy mom does sound really exhausting. I'm sure the cuteness makes it so worth it though! I wish I weren't allergic.

  2. Oh the puppy stage is so difficult... I remember being ecstatic just to go out to lunch, but it gets better and it goes by so so quickly too! Enjoy it while it lasts!

  3. It sounds really exhausting!!
    Hope it gets better!

  4. Ha ha ha ha ha!
    You are just like a young mother, with that puppy. Adorable and hilarious!
