ready to give her away


i just came downstairs to find this...if you cant tell. that is a HOLE in the carpet that annie decided to dig up. and chew. through both the carpet and the padding, leaving the bare subflooring exposed. keep in mind, we live in a RENTAL house. the carpet is already pretty dingy, and it was when we moved in...so we are sure the landlord would probably update it or get laminate flooring when we move out in a month and a half anyway, but now she definitely will. and now, it will be at our expense. i am so angry. there had to have been some sort of scent or bug down under the carpet right there though bc annie typically doesnt dig. unless she finds a worm in the yard or something. i am almost ready to give her to my grandparents or something. good grief. she is SO BAD and so mischievious!!!!!!!! but she really is sweet in her heart of hearts. and she's the cutest thing youve ever seen. she just is so destructive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! gah!

ok. enough venting about that. we're going to greenville tomorrow. and she will get to be at matt's mom's house which has an awesome, huge, yard and her and cooper can stay outside all day and get their energy out. thank God. we have a wedding to go to saturday and we're going home a few days early to HOPEFULLY figure out our living situation. it's been so stressful. but i just keep telling myself. be so happy you're moving back to greenville. and i am. at this point i dont even care where we live, im just glad to be going home :)

please pray for annie to be a better *dog* (keyword) and get out of the freakin' puppy stage. otherwise im going to go insane. she is such a baby and i wish she would grow up to be an old lazy dog. major props to all you moms of human babies out there! i dont know how you do it!!!! you're amazing.

here's the culprit...in case you all forgot how innocent she looks...

i guess im a "once-a-month" blogger

though im on my computer quite a bit, i always forget to blog. well /i guess i dont forget to, because i always read everyone else's blog, but i just dont. i promise to start doing it more often.

ill start with the most recent happenings first.

i was just cooking dinner. where usually the dogs sit in the kitchen the entire time waiting for me to drop a morsel, and i realized they werent in there. i thought it was strange and came into the living room to find, cooper looking guilty as can be and put his tail between his legs. then annie COVERED in what looked like red mud, then seeing a HUGE MASS of this "red mud" like substance all over the quilt on the couch (thank goodness it wasnt on the couch itself). first i freaked out then realized there was no red mud outside right now. noticed annie was licking herself insanely. then saw a chewed open box of jello- chocolate pudding mix on the floor. i didnt know whether to laugh or cry. ended up being an easy mess to clean as i just threw the quilt in the washer and vaccummed some powder left on the couch. matts going to give annie a bath in a little bit, and cooper's already mananged to clean himself. and i looked up whether it woud hurt them or not and they're fine. the whole "dogs cant have chocolate" thing is NOT a rumor, however, it's mainly the rule for DARK CHOCOLATE. anyway. just another day in the life of a dog owner :)

second. weddings galore. one month from tomorrow is cathleen and chris's wedding. and megan and blake's is july 11. im so excited! i have decided im going to start packing stuff over the next couple weeks (we're hoping to move back, mid july) and i have to be back for 4 weekends in a row from june 13-july11 then moving so it's pretty much the only time i have to pack. i hate packing. ill just turn on some music and get a wad of newspaper, boxes, and tape from somewhere and get after it. if anyone has any moving tips, i'd love to hear them.

we're deciding this week whether we're going to rent for a year or buy a house in greenville. it has been a much more stressful situation than i had planned for. trying to take it day by day and see what happens. at this point, im just so glad to be moving back to greenville that i dont care if we have to live in a box. i mean. i do. but i am so happy to move back!!!

i am so excited for american idol tonight and the new "preview" of Glee. i think it's going to remind me a lot of chorus in high school (glee, that is). it looks really good. i miss high school. i think i am one of the only ones. a lot of people say they wouldnt go back if they were paid to. i mean, i dont want to go back for the whole time, but a couple months or so would be nice. didnt realize how easy we had it back then did we?? gah! wish i could just up and go to the beach for a week and spend my parents money and then come back and hit up payson's house and do something crazy. i loved chorus and i loved cheerleading (ha) and i loved my friends. just hated waking up that early. that is something i DO NOT do. (megan, admire you x1,000,000 for the time that you wake up every day. gah) .

ok. this is just turning into a journal entry, rather than telling you anything productive, but i figured i owe you all a blog. :) talk sooner than later, i swear.
