Superbowl Weekend

i feel like so much went on last week, or weekend that i can't remember what happened. i had a pretty mellow work week seeing as how i worked with floater pharmacists because of vacation, and the same for this week. i seem to almost like the floaters better... not surprising.

friday after work justin and i conquered the snow that we got and met brad at cebollas. it's been forever since we've been there and even longer since we've hung out with brad. it was nice catching up and just hanging out for a while. saturday we had all these plans... we wanted to clean house for sunday, get groceries, go to the potty training class for clark. well, we did none of that. all of us were laaaazy. we went to the gym in the morning, got subway, and that was the last of the excitement. we watched movies and lounged around until about 6 or so. we finally started to clean house and scooted on to bed. sunday morning rolled around and we headed to church, grabbed what we needed for snacks for the game, continued to clean and then headed to puppy class for clark. puppy class went... ok. haha when we first got there clark was excited to be great by two HUGE bullmastiffs. this was my first encounter with a mastiff as well and was surprised to see how big they actually were. they were like horses! clark, being the curious little puppy he is, went right up to both of them, let them check him out and started playing. he loved them, and i think he even loved the drool... gross. we had one other dog, a husky, in our class. we just worked on a couple commands such as watch me and sit. he knows how to sit very well and he picked watch me up very quickly. the funny thing was that he wanted nothing to do with it about half way through. he didn't understand why we weren't letting him play with the other day and he got tired of listening. he was literally tired... he just wanted to lay down and stopped paying attention to us. what a goofball. so we have our fingers crossed that he'll start listening to us better because he's listened to those commands very well this week. now lets just work on biting and jumping up.

we had quite a houseful for superbowl. justin had even hooked a tv up in the kitchen for excess people, but we all managed to fit in the living room. we ordered some pizzas and had snack foods. it was a lot of fun, we had a different group over this time. we had brad, beth, brittni and chase y. we also had invited nirup and hannah, who we used to live next to at the apartment and now we attend church with them. they also brought some people from church: kevin, his wife beth and kyle. it was a lot of fun and clark behaved himself!

as for this week, it's been very uneventful. thank goodness for all the snow. i thought we were going to get through winter with no real snow falling. i even had a snowday at school. that's always fun in college. last night we babysat kaydence while rosena (justin's sister) and cressel were in class. she's always so well behaved and we even got her to do a little housework...haha.

My first blog

so, as my first blog starts, i've already questioned whether or not to use proper capitlization... it's not my thing when typing, so maybe not.

thursday, thursday. class is a bore, and i come home to cleaning, a wild pup, and babysitting in the evening. what not to look forward to? clark must have thought when we bought this house we were thinking of him because we obviously set up the furniture for him as a race track. and of course everything is HIS! pens, bras, socks, shoes, slippers, paper, etc. anything he can get quickly (and i mean quickly) and he's off to the track. which way will he go? he dodges to the left, then to the right, around the coffee table as i dive and miss him, behind the loveseat where he always ends up in the corner, behind the recliner where i think i'm going to be patient and get him. no... this just sends me into a rage which makes me throw the recliner against one wall and catch him. i take whatever he has, and as a sly little pup he always gets me back. as i walk away trip , and i either fall, or almost fall. this doesn't make me angry at all. please, oh please Lord have these puppy classes work!

so last saturday night, justin and i attended our church's intro class so to speak. we learned the ins and outs of pine hills and how to become a member. i think it's nice that we look forward to going to church on sunday mornings and we've really started to feel a part of it all. everyone is so welcoming and we can't wait to take the next step into joining and being baptized.

as for the weekend, we have lots of plans... catching up with brad and beth, housework i'm sure, dear john with some girls, church and of the superbowl with some chili and friends! go colts...sorda. i guess i should be supportive of justin's team...haha.
