okay so Michael and I were talking about getting a dog and we've been looking at craigslist (for a free one of course!) so we saw an ad for wolfhound puppies and googled the breed: they are huge but cool looking so Michael wanted one and after reading that they are gentle and good with kids I thought it would be fun to have such a big dog. Michael and I both respond to the ad but only I get a response with two phone numbers so I call and the lady agrees to meet me the next day but will call "first thing in the morning" to set a concrete time. That night Michael bought a collar and leash and the next morning I waited for the phone call, but she never called! so I called her, but of course she didn't answer either of the numbers she gave me so I left a message. after a few hours I tried calling again but this time the phone rang and rang but instead of going to to voicemail it just hung up so I think she must of been avoiding my call. What's the deal? Why not just let me know if she doesn't want to give me her dog. AAGGHH!! I know it's not really a big deal but it just really ticks me off that she wouldn't just tell me. Why did she have to be so rude about it all??? anyway I just needed to get out my frustration! if you have time you should google 'Irish wolfhound' they are, maybe a bit ugly, but so huge it's cool!

So Jonah's 1st day of school was pretty exciting for all of us. He wasn't nervous until we were walking to the school entrance and he asked me if I could stay just for that day until he got "used to it" I only stayed a few minutes but all day I was anxious to talk to him about how his first day was. but when I picked him up all he told me was that it was "bad". "Uh-oh" I thought, "he's never going to want to go to school again!" but it was only bad because he could only play on one playground during recess b/c the other playground was for older kids. So if that's the only "bad" thing about school I think it will be okay! Jonah's still excited about school and even said he's making new friends, Yay! oh Ryker was excited for Jonah too (look at his excitement in the photo!)

Pre-school jitters!

Wow, I can't believe that Jonah is going to start pre-K!! so Jonah has been wanting to go to school for like 2 years so when we moved here to Alpine I started looking into preschools since he's finally old enough to go and the pre-k class the public school offers was so full that I had to put him on the wait list and I really didn't think he would get in this year but as luck would have it the school called today and asked if Jonah was still interested and if he could start tomorrow! so tonight I had to run around to three different stores trying to find all the school supplies he would need and of course the first two stores I went to were way understocked and didn't have much of what I needed so I had to go to a third store, but I finally got everything and Jonah is so excited!! I think I'm more nervous than he is! He already wants to ride the bus and when I told him I wanted to take him for his first day he almost cried. I hope he likes it and doesn't get burnt out and most of all I hope I've been a good enough mom to have taught him the basic social skills he'll need to interact with the teacher and other students. It is so exciting to have a son starting school It will be so different not having him home all day with me, I don't know what I'll do with just Ryker hopefully I'll be able to get more "me" stuff done!! Good Luck at School Jonah! I'm so proud of you!

Why Blog??

Okay so I've had many friends and a sister ask me why don't I have a blog. I really was just being lazy but now that Michael's always at school or work and I have nothing to do becasue I don't have my own house yet I figured that blogging would be a good way to keep me busy doing something... and it seems kinda fun, but we'll see how well I keep up with it:) I guess there's alot to learn about having a blog and I'll figure it out as I go!! So this is for everyone who has ever asked "do you have a blog?" I can finally say "YES"
