Life is good...

I haven't blogged in awhile...Things were pretty crappy during the end of 2008/beginning of 2009 and so with a lot of weight on my shoulders, I didn't feel like talking about it. So as to not ramble, I will make a list of all of the wonderful things in my life.

1. Hubby has a job! He got the offer a few weeks ago but it was contingent on him passing the state's insurance license exam. He starts Monday. Woot Woot!!

2. I got promoted! It's bittersweet because it's due to a co-worker losing her job. She had some serious issues to work and luckily her family has kept us in the loop. She is getting the help she needs.

3. My parents found new renters for their house. The previous renters moved out at the end of December without paying December's rent. What makes me the most angry is that these people moved into this house because the home they owned was being foreclosed on. Some how after many months of not paying their mortgage, the bank is letting them keep the house. So they screwed my parents and just moved. Ugh, it's so disgusting how some people have no sense of responsibility. My parents were really stressing but thankfully they had new renters shortly after. I swear if I ever see their previous tenants I will kick them in the shins.

4. My parents have a new adorable little puppy, Holly. We had to have our family dog, Sierra of 13 years put to sleep in April, which was terribly traumatic for all of us, especially my mom. Now that us kids are grown, her dogs are like her children. They have another dog, Tessa who is five and she really needed a friend. She was so lonely without Sierra. So they were finally ready to bring a puppy home. They got her right before Christmas and she is the cutest thing ever. Bailey already loved going to my parents' house to play with their older dog. So now he has two dogs to play with and he LOVES it. Although now that the puppy is bigger than him, he's realizing he needs some new moves.

5. Our new house is fabulous. We are finally feeling settled and loving how much space we have.

6. I'm back in a workout routine and feeling so much better. I was really down on myself and ready to throw in the towel a few weeks ago.
7. Our dogs are the best. Well that has never changed. They have been the one constant that always comforted us when things got tough. Sorry that wasn't very brief! So in a nutshell, life is good. I feel rejuvenated and refreshed for what lies ahead. I plan on blogging more frequently now that I have some normalcy in my life. Cheers to 2009!


yay for the new job, new house, and new puppy!

Yay for so many things! Yay, yay, yay!!! :)

That puppy is too cute for words. I want to squeeze it and kiss it and love it.

Good news, all around! I want you to come over soon. We live so close now.

Congrats to your hubby on the test - the state insurance tests are poorly written & I know a lot of people have trouble with them.

The puppy is adorable! :)

Awww, what an adorable happy puppy! And so many other happy things.

with all the crap so many people are dealing with right now, it's nice to hear of all the yay! things going on in your life!! :D
