Seasons in life

Once again I haven't blogged in a while... mostly because work has been a little overwhelming these last couple of months. We are working on a rather large "project" which has invaded my life and left me gasping for air. The word "project" is actually more like a euphemism for butt-load-of-junk-that-needs-doing-that-no one-else-can/will-do. They say that there is a sucker born every minute. I wonder what flavor that makes me... hmmmmm.

Summer is here again, in all of its glory. I hear that my pool is great. I wouldn't know:) BUT, my checkbook heard about it and it has been bragging to the saving account. SAVINGS ACCOUNT - hahaha - I crack myself up, sometimes.

My DVR is killing me. All of my shows, just waiting for me to curl up with the dogs. It is all I can do to keep up. Survivor is over. Russell lost. Need I say more. American Idol is over and Simon is leaving. Crystal lost there, and let me tell you, we are none too happy about this at our house. Dancing with the Stars is over... no wait; I don't have any idea what happened there because I don't watch that one. We have to draw the limit to the reality show variety, people! Bones is over for the season and Temperance (side note: love the name) has gone to timbucktoo... Fringe is over and Olivia's evil twin has come over to our reality. We are working our way thru the CSI season finales and the NCIS finales and the House finale... and Criminal Minds - YIKES! I am currently trying to figure out how to cut off all serial killers from my facebook and blogging site. I am pretty sure that I could have gotten that silly house clean by now if it weren't for that DVR. AND... I'd probably be wet by now, not to mention all the cool stuff that I would have blogged about.

One a sad note, we have had to send our Zoe punkin to live with another family. My working schedule is so all-consuming that the dogs have had to rethink their place in the pack. I have always kind of poo-pooed the idea of the "alpha dog" mentality, but we have watched the chain of command unravel before our very eyes. Zoe is naturally the alpha because she is the mommy. However, she is very laid back and happy and only comes into this position by default. Truly has decided to exert her decidedly strong will and no longer wants to be second in command. This led to some very serious fighting in the ranks. After much research and many tears, we decided it was in both of their best interests to split them up which of course led to my Sophie's Choice moment. Fortunately, the good people from whom we originally procured said yorkie was willing to welcome home one of their grandpuppies. She fit right back in. THAT is how I spell relief. Things have been much quieter on the dog front with her gone. Not that she was the noisy one, by any means... I guess that it is just the overall onelessness. The dogs are happier, but apparently I have offended a number of people for not "picking" them to be Zoe's new family. Don't really care so much, as long as she is spoiled rotten for the rest of her life.

Cause that's just how I roll.
