Pictures of my new baby!
Saturday, January 11, 2014
My new baby and walking partner came home from the shelter on Wed. We've been dying to have a dog for years and we were finally able to! I don't know if the kids or mom or dad are more excited!
Her name is Poppet. (The almost 13 year old is REALLY enjoying saying "'ello, Poppet!") She's a boxer/pit bull and she's the sweetest thing ever. I think she would make a terrible terrible guard dog!
She's also super strong, weighs more than the 6 year old and has a lot of energy. She is an excellent walking partner! I managed to break my pedometer Thursday, but the first day we had her she already tripled my steps.
I don't think I realized that having a puppy was like having another baby without all the pain. I mean, I did but I don't think I thought much about it. I'm sleepy like a new mom! I worry about my baby! It is interesting.
Also, she is excellent at marathoning "The Tudors" with me. I have no idea how I missed this show, it is so good!
So life has been a bit busy as of late. I've been thinking of my spark friends, but if I had time to get on the computer I used that time to track things! I'm doing alright for the most part. I had a Whopper Jr last night, but I took out the mayo and cheese. I got a small onion ring instead of a large. I stayed within my cal/fat range even though I had some junk food. I treat myself to junk food once a month when DH and DD have their daddy daughter date. I checked the scale yesterday morning and it was down so that's good.
Anyways, I'm sorry to have neglected you spark friends. Life just got in the way. I really hope all is well with you all! I hope to have some time later today to read your blogs and get caught up. Love to you all!
