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???

Novy, you have a CLASSIC plate! Do you think any Twins fans will see it and react? I dunno. My girlfriend is from Minnesota...Cold Spring, to be exact. I'm glad you are well, good luck in the new job, and just BE HAPPY. Beckett is SO SO SO SO cute...I got a little carried away...sorry. Your blog friend (still!!!) Peter
