WAY Past Due ...

** This is a picture I took at the lake a few weeks ago - we were out on our houseboat and docked on an island - isn't it beautiful? **

Wow. Where does one begin after such a long absence?

Well, I left Wisconsin and moved back to Minnesota at the end of May due to changes in my job ... I took most of the summer off and spent time readjusting to small town life and enjoying my now 9 year old son and bonding with all of his new friends. I got a dog (will show pics later) and have been busy teaching him to be a good boy for Mama.

I start my new job in just 13 days!! I'm excited to be moving forward with my life. I have 10 weeks of training to go through, but I look forward to the challenge.

So, I said I got a puppy. It's a shih tzu, he's just over 3 months now. His name is Beckett. I know, I know ... but I just love Josh Beckett and thought - How fitting is that???? LOL!!!

This is a picture from the day I brought him home...

Uh, I guess I don't have any recent pictures online just yet, so once I do I will show you how big he is now!! In this picture he was 1 pound 6 ounces ... 3 weeks ago he was 7 pounds 3 ounces - - he's a little piglet and I can't wait to see how much he weighs next week when I take him to the vet.

I have been going out a lot with friends and family. Sadly there is not a TON to do around here that doesn't involve booze or the bar, and I have been doing my fair share of spending time doing both so working full time will keep my ass outta those situations!

I have been trying to follow my favorite Boys of Summer as often as possible ... my love for the Red Sox has to be obvious with this picture below ..............

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my license plates!!!!! Spending the money on vanity plates was so worth it ... I just can't tell you the happy feeling I get when I see my car. Does that make me pathetic???
