Monday Ramblings

Morning ladies!
Guess what?! {chicken butt}

It's only 10am and the morning has already started out with some ups and downs...

fist pump!
First off... last night big blue made it to the superbowl! now i'm a Jets fan by proxy (aka married to a the biggest die hard Jets fan) but the rest of my family roots for the G-men... especially my brother. So i'm glad he has a smile on his face today! Along with almost all of my other FB friends that have been posting incessantly about football. I know... GASP, i'm kind of ready for football to end. then again when the ONLY channel we watch in our house is the NFL network 24/7, come on, you feel my pain, a little right?

Second, SIGH. I have the world's most high maintenance expensive dogs. Dropped Mr. Scoo-face off at the vet today for his teeth cleaning... only to find out their estimate to do it is.... $383!!! {Insert minor heart attack here}. Coupled with the groomer who's scheduled for later this week - another $90 and the fact that they told me that the allergy meds Scooter's on shouldn't be the generic one, it has to be name brand (apparently the name brand is 30% more effective?) so that's going to be at least ANOTHER $100 (and then will be that monthly... i swear, these dogs cost me more than human kids.

But when I walked into work (late) today, i got an e-mail that put a SMILE on my face! i've been nominated for an award! YAY! How exciting right? I mean, listen, i write this blog for me, as a creative outlet, a place to vent, and a place to share my experiences with others. But still, its nice to get some love and know that people like what you have to say.
