Catch Up

Ok, so here's yet another post where I play catch up with my followers!  I really never intend to go this long between blog entries, but then something happens. . . And then I feel guilty about not writing, and so I put it off for a couple more days (because no one wants to read my guilt).  And pretty soon its been forever since I wrote anything!

So here, in bullet form (I heart bulleted lists!) is what has been going on in my corner of the interwebs:

  • I'm about 90% certain that I get to keep my job.  My pending unemployment has been something I chose not to blog about, because, honestly, one depressing topic is enough for a blog!  I was told last year that come September 12th of this year, I would be laid off.  Now it's looking like funding has been approved, but nothing is official yet.  It would mean another year of employment, and another year of insurance!
  • My mom has accepted a job offer.  She has been unemployed for almost 8 months.  She starts at her new job in a couple of weeks.  The company she is going to work for even said they would work around her broken arm until it heals.  Pretty darn exciting!
  • And speaking of my mom's broken arm, she had an x-ray again last week, and it showed where there is new bone growing.  She still has 4 more weeks in the sling, but she says it's feeling better every day. 
  • We had a big family pool party at my in laws a couple weekends ago.  That's where the picture of Moo in a life vest came from.  My father in law can be a bit of an ass, and last year threw Moo into their pool several times.  Now, most dogs might sink a little from the throw, but then would swim out.  Not Moo.  Once water goes over his head, he figures he's done for and sinks.  I got sick of jumping in and saving him, and bought the life vest.  Best $20 I've ever spent!  My FIL threw Moo into the pool again this year, but Moo floated to the top, and thanks to the handy dandy handle on the back of his life vest, I didn't even have to get in the water to get him out!
  • Me and the husband are still working away at making the hot tub use able.  We've got it up on the platform, and wired.  But now it appears the pump isn't working.  Sigh. 
I think that's about it.  Nothing really exciting going on.  We've been really laid back and relaxed this month (I hate the word relax).  We've been enjoying spending time with family, spending time in our yard, and killing new monsters on our computer games.  What, not everyone does that?

  1. I've read that some dogs (it said pugs specifically) CANNOT swim. It blew my mind but obviously there are others to add to the list!

    I'm glad your back and happy for the great job news for you and your mom!
