So... Shaylor and I have decided to take on the game of racquetball. We have both played before but never together. Today was our first day to play against each other. I got my butt handed to me. I always hit the ball to Shaylor but he made me run around like crazy. I am glad because I got a much better workout then he did. We have plans to go again tomorrow. We will have to see how it goes. Hopefully I will get better and make Shaylor have to work for the win.
So, Shaylor and I were debating between a baby and a puppy and we decided... a PUPPY!!!! As many of you know, Shaylor and I have had experience with strays. They seem to just love us. So, we had decided our next dog would be a rescue dog. I had gone to Petsmart with my mom. I knew it was a bad idea on a Saturday. The sweet helpless dogs just stare at you and you can help them. Well, I walked in and had to look. There sat two black lab puppies that were 2 months old. I called Shaylor, who was about to take a nap before our concert, and told him to come up here to see this puppy. I have wanted a lab for a really long time, and was hoping he would say yes. He came up there and fell in love. By the time we left we had a new puppy, names Miller. He is precious and seems to be a good dog. He has had only one accident in the house and that was when we first got home. He slept in his "bed" last night. He started off crying, but within some time he stopped and slept for 7 hours. I actually woke him up. No accidents in the "bed" either. Miller so far comes when you say come, and he will fetch his rope when you throw it, so far so good. Max adjusted pretty well. Diesel is still having a tough time, but in time we know he will be ok. Max is actually protecting Diesel. It always takes Diesel a little time to adjust to a dog being in our home. Hopefully by tomorrow, Diesel and Miller will be playing. Once I get some pictures, and Shelley explains to me how to do it, I will get the posted. Until then, say a little prayer for us...3 dogs!!!!!
Shaylor and I experienced our first time away from each other. We spent not quit a week with my parents in Ruidoso. We had a blast. We went to the horse races, lost money, went to the casino, lost money. So we thought let's play my parents in putt-putt. They even beat us in that. Shaylor had to go back to work, so I decided to stay in El Paso with my parents. I haven't seen my husband in 8 days and cannot wait for tomorrow. I finally get to go home. Don't get me wrong, I love being with my family, but I miss my husband. Bless his heart; he has been eating ramen noodles. I guess he is living the life of a bachelor. Thank goodness all of that will change tomorrow.
We have an exciting weekend planned. Some friends are coming over Friday and we are going to cookout. Then on Saturday, we are going to Rascal Flatts. I am so excited.
