|sing it, sweet brown. sing, girl.|
so here is a recap of last week.
-i finished two blog designs. check out Ally and Brandi's brand new blogs. they just started blogging so go visit them and show them some love.
- i cleaned. a whole bunch. i'm sure i've said this before, but my house is only clean for about 10 minutes a day even though i spend hours cleaning it every single day. it blows my mind. i'm not entirely sure how it works, but i'm certain it has
it is truly remarkable how much fur can come off of one solitary dog in the matter of a week. this level of shedding is what i would expect from a Wookie or a Sasquatch. or any one of the "things" from Where The Wild Things Are. but for a canine? it is much too much.
the other day she walked into the room i was in, stood there for a second and then walked away. and i kid you not, she left an entire handful of fur in her place. HOW DOES SHE DO IT? i don't know. fur is literally raining off of her and she doesn't even care. but i spent a lot of my time last week vacuuming her up. and then the hairy fairy would visit in the night and i would wake up to tufts of Gilly fur all over the place. like inside my shoes. and on my walls. (and yes, i did proceed to vacuum both.) dear family, you'll all be receiving "cashmere" sweaters for Christmas. please submit your sizes to me now. also, i'm considering just not vacuuming at all from here on out and enjoying the free installment of carpet.
|this was only a few hours after vacuuming the entire house.|
|turn on a fan, and we would have little mini tumbleweeds blowing through our house. marvelous.|
-i had a video chat date with the lovely ladies from Stories of Kel, Pretty Living PDX and Northern Belle Diaries. it was lots of fun. i really love meeting other bloggers. it makes me feel like less of a loser knowing that people are actually reading.
-we finally found a food that Gilly would eat. ever since Christmas she's been super picky about what she'll eat and it has lead to some severe anxiety on my part. she would go two days without touching her food and she showed no interest in any kind of food whatsoever. not even peanut butter. (and that would be like me not having interest in peanut butter. it was a big deal.) her tummy would make horrific gurgling noises and it really had me worried. after testing out like 5 different kinds of food, we finally found a Duck Meat food that she seems to love. can i get a hallelujah?!
-i worked on my fitness with Shaun T. and i managed to take a picture of myself while doing push up jacks. i'm maybe overly proud of myself for this accomplishment. i'm considering putting it on my resume. what's up multitasking? ...too far?
|and then i dripped sweat onto my ipad. gross.|
|this is my favorite stage of cookie dough. it's when i long to stick my face in the bowl the most.|
|this is a close second. i know it's weird, but i really like the dough sans chocolate chips. maybe because it's easier for me to stick my face in?|
...there are other things that i did, but they currently escape me. my mind just keeps wandering back to cookies. a clean house, a cute pup, and a jar full of cookies is sort of my happy place. i guess there are worse places to be stuck in.
