hi, friends.

it's me.

today is my first day "off" in a very long time so i have time to write an actual post.

except i woke up yesterday and today with a sore throat and junk in my face.


i really swear i NEVER get sick, but apparently i've been exposed to too many sickly people this winter.


i was going to (and will still try) to be motivated to do things today like taking down the christmas tree, laundry, and unpacking.

good thing i have midge because she is slowly starting to take of each ornament off one by one.
such a good helper.


i will also have to try to not be distracted by The Hunger Game series.

i know, i know... i'm a little behind the times, but we can't afford to buy books

and the waiting list at the library is like 60 people long.

and i don't have a library card.



so instead i borrowed the series from this handsome kid when we visited him in OK:



i just finished the first one last night and started the second.


what did you think of them?

i think i like them.





in other news, we are spaying midge in a couple weeks.

and i'm kind of really apprehensive about it.

we pretty much treat her like she's our first born and i'm just a little freaked out for her to go under the knife.


ugh.

wish me luck.



i started to write some new goals for 2011.

guess what number one is?



 move out of this apartment.




lincoln said his goal for 2011 was to have a baby.


if he grows it inside of him, then it will happen.







that is all for today.

i better go eat something because i'm starting to feel dizzy.

and here's another family photo:







love them.

Oh that sucks!! Get feeling better :-(
I just had my first born (dog) spayed too. I thought I was going to die. I laid on my couch all day and cried because I was so nervous. Then she came home and I laid on the couch and cried all week long because I felt so bad for her. It gets better though after about a week. And my kitty was even faster so hopefully it'll be easy breezey! Good luck!!!

aw have a baby! :)

we just had our dog, lilly spayed. and it was the saddest thing ever. she's a 60lbs lab, and i had to pick her up and put her into the car. she could barely walk and i thought she hated me. james had to work so i had to drop her off and pick her up- tragic! make lincoln do all that. i was a mess. i called him and was like, "let me be clear, i'm NEVER doing that again!" he was all calm and sweet-like and said, "kel, honey, it's a one time procedure- so keep that in mind.." haha

i'm sure that makes you feel better about it, huh? sorry! she bounced back after a couple days and has been a way better dog than she was before. we would have done it sooner had we known.. hope it goes well! good luck!

HUNGER GAMES! That is all I did during my Christmas Break. They are ADDICTING. I just started the 3rd one.

I think the first one was so far was my favorite!

Enjoy!
