Well if buying a house wasn't stressful enough we went out and bought a dog. We originally were going to get a dog from some people we found online in southern Wisconsin but they we taking long and were pricey. Then Emily found a breeder, ironically from New London for much less so we ended up going there and getting a Golden Retriever puppy from them. Check out my photo gallery for pictures of her.
She is 7 weeks old and we ended up naming her Blondie, mainly because she came to us when we called her by that name.
It hasn't been smooth sailing owning a dog so far. The first night I ended up waking up every 2 hours to take her outside. She has gone to the bathroom on our floor numerous times as well. She also feels the need to chew on things ranging from Emily's pants, the carpet, and wooden objects. We have taken measures to stop her from going to the bathroom on the floor and chewing on things but you can only do so much. It's sort of like being a full time baby sitter. Eventually she will get older and we won't have many problems anymore so it's not a big deal.
In house news we got the carpet in our basement replaced. That means that I can FINALLY set up the basement the way I want it, and it means I can FINALLY get my computer set up. It's been a couple of weeks of not using my computer at all so it feels good to get back on the "horse".
Mean while back at the carpet...I took our old carpet and laid it out flat in our extra rooms in the basement essentially converting them into 1/4 finished rooms. No more cold dirty cement floors for me when I'm doing laundry or storing junk in our basement anymore. It also means that our entire house has some sort of flooring on it! Go and vote on my new poll for our next house project.
Well it's getting late so I should be heading upstairs. Aidios!...View Comments (0)
