II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

T. G. I. Finally the day!

You know how when you were a little kid and you had something exciting the next day, like maybe you were gonna leave for camp or you were going to a theme park or like on Christmas Eve? You can't hardly sleep and you wake up every hour wondering when it's ever gonna be morning? Well, that's how my night was. The first time my eyes opened at 5:36 this morning, I remembered what today is and could sleep no longer. In 2 hours I will be leaving the house and when I come back, I will have my little Sadie with me.
But that's not the only reason I am excited. Matt took the day off work and we get to spend it together, in a new town, with our new puppy. Husband, shopping, puppy...it's like the perfect day. I, of course, will have pictures to show you tonight! But for now, I have to quit blogging and get to working or I'm not gonna be able to leave out of here on time.
Thank you all for putting up with me and this whole puppy thing. I know I am making a way too big deal out of it....and if I was reading this on someone else's blog, I'd probably be rolling my eyes just a bit...but for you mothers out there....you'll understand. I've been torn (just a little) about whether or not we are EVER going to have any more babies. Neither of us is "fixed" so we technically could. The thought has rolled around in my head a few times and I always come up with the fact that we are DONE. That makes me sad and homesick for a baby. So...this puppy is like the "Best of Both Worlds" as Hannah Montana would say. I get to care for a "baby" but not have quite the level of responsibility that comes with a real baby. It's almost like the bigger deal I let myself make of this....the more like having a baby it is...which will hopefully fufill that desire. Anyway, I know I'm being silly...but it feels SO good for once to be sorta goofy and silly and not so serious and "perfect" all the time. It's like I've let loose of the reins for a moment. Ahhh...it's nice. It can't last forever, obviously...but it's been a long time.
Okay...really....gotta get to work! ha ha
Hope you all have a terrific Friday!

Ok where are the picture! I have been waiting all weekend to see them. I can't wait to see her, hope she was all you imagined and more. I don't what I would do without my baby Shadow. He is a 4 year old cockerspaniel poodle mix. I got him when he was just 4 weeks old and he is so sweet. Except he doesn't think he is a dog, which is so funny to watch him.
