It has been a BUSY week...and it just keeps on going!

This past week has been a busy one...not only at work, but at home too. We just brought Zoey home last weekend and it's been an amazing experience to see how much she has grown both physically and mentally in the past week. When she went to the vet the Tuesday before the Saturday that we brought her home, she weighed only 2.4 pounds. She has easily gained 1/2 or maybe even a full pound since then. Last weekend she was a very shaky walker, and now she is running all over the place!

I am happy to say that she is adjusting just fine and she is healthy, happy, and a puppy should be. :) We start our puppy training classes tomorrow and they run for the next ten weeks. Luckily they are on Monday evenings so that I still have my weekends off! Woot!

I'm sorry that I haven't been around to anyone's blogs lately or that I haven't tried to contact you via email...things have just been so crazy here that I need as much time as possible during my off time to recharge my batteries for the busy time I know is coming for the rest of the day or week. Zoey needs constant attention and care right now as she is still very young, so this is my main concentration while I am at home.

I've posted some pics on my Flickr account for anyone interested and I'm keeping tally of her age in the pics as well so that I can remember what she looked like at which age. Her and Milo have hit it off amazingly and what I hoped would happen has...Milo has a small playmate to keep him happy and active if and when the humans of the house are too busy doing human stuff to play with him. :) They are constantly playing with each other, or cuddling, and she is learning a lot from both of my older dogs in regards to doggy social skills. Sheila doesn't care for her much, but that was expected. Sheila doesn't really like other dogs too much, other than I've been having to keep a VERY close eye on her. She doesn't get to spend time with the puppy, as she doesn't seem to want to. She's more happy laying on her couch and watching them play. :)

So, here are a couple pictures to share, but if you want to see more, go HERE. :)

It's April 12th already??!!?

First off, good morning Everyone! :)

Second, I just HAVE to tell you what just happened about 10 minutes ago. My dog Milo just pulled the typical classic puppy move and it was so damn cute! You know, the one where you find the dog in the washroom covered in toilet paper, only to see a tattered up roll left in the dispenser....yep, that one. :) I heard some crazy noises coming from somewhere in the direction of the washroom, but it wasn't loud and I was thinking of other things at the when I finally got there to see, Milo was very happily prancing through tattered toilet paper and of course a streamer of it just HAD to covering his face slightly to make it all THAT more cute...making it THAT much harder to give him shit...hahaha. But I did, and he stopped and I will just be happy in the memory of it.

And off to more happy news...I went clothes shopping last night to prove to myself that I've still got it. Oh ya baby...LOL! See, this project at work saps all of my time lately and let's just say that I've seen some poundage coming on. So, I bought the type of clothes that hide it AND that will make me feel better because I will be fashionable. That's what always works for me and before I can blink, I've lost the extra padding that I've put on because I feel good about myself.

I swear, I don't even recognize myself from even a year ago. I used to have short hair and glasses...and when I say short, I mean S H O R T. ;) I really liked it at the time, and I still really do enjoy a good short do on most people, but it was time for me to grow it out. I am now able to wear my hair up without a zillion bobby pins...w00t! So ya, I bought a dress, a black trench coat (OMG), a brown very sleek and stylish suit jacket with drawstring, a skirt, new tights, and some really cute sweaters. I ALWAYS have to wear full clothing at work...summer and winter. I am always freezing there, so it's all about layers for me. In the summer I'm dressed for winter inside work and then the layers come off as I venture outside. It's annoying to say the least. :P

So ya, I'm going to have to work lots of overtime to pay for all of the expenses coming up with the new puppy, summer tires, yearly vet bills for the other pets...but it will work itself always does. I hardly ever buy myself clothes and my wardrobe was really lacking, so it was definitely time. H&M RULES by the way. I found everything I needed there, except for the tights and shoes. The things that made me the happiest shopping there were as follows:

No salespersons hounding me. I found everything myself.
The change rooms had two mirrors so that you could see the front AND back all at once.
The prices are MORE than reasonable.
They have every colour arrangement you can think of.
They don't try to sell you stuff because they KNOW they're stuff just sells on its no cheesy conversations with salespeople...GOD that was awesome!
And they size their clothes properly AND make clothes to fit REAL woman...Amen!

So, it's been fun while it lasted. I miss you all and I hope to get myself organized soon so that more of you know where I am now AND to get out and visit you at your places to say hi! :)

Have a great one Everyone! HUGS!

I did it again...

...yep. I've moved AGAIN.

I had to. It was either this, or I stop blogging all together.

Of late, I have been feeling paranoid and just a bit uneasy, thinking that there are people out to get me...find my personal space on the web and use it against me somehow.

I know, it sounds like I've lost it doesn't it?! ;) Well, I've heard of too many horror stories of this happening to people, not to mention that I had quite a few readers that I wasn't too keen on them knowing where my personal space was.

So, here I am...Zoey.

I'll be out commenting on my friends blogs soon...but for now, I had to get this site created and set up the way I want. I'll try to contact all of you via email with this new address and to let you know it's me.

Until then, take care.
