Playing Catch up

I am no better at keeping up with this than I am at keeping a journal. I thought if maybe other people were reading it I would be motivated to keep at it. I just really suck at this.
Well, I am now in South Carolina. Guess what. It's cold. The first week I was here it snowed like, 6 inches in one day. It was funny to watch the dogs though. I showed it to them on the patio. They walked out and then turned right back around and came inside. Then next day we took them to an open field and let them run around and they began to really like it.
Everyone keeps asking me how I like it here. I really do not know how to answer them. I don't spend too much time outside, and it is just like any other city I've been in. I mean other than the temperature and the fact that absolutely everything is brown and dead, my life is alot like it was in Florida. I am at an awkward stage right now though. I am out of school and I won't be going back. It is so weird to think that this is the rest of my life. College was really such a small part. I mean, it's like in church. You start out in Primary, and you're there till you are 12. Then you join the youth organization and are there till you are 18. Suddenly you are in Relief Society. And guess what, you're there till you die. Not to be a downer or anything it's just weird to think that there are not any more stages. Bam, you're an adult. I feel like that now. I mean I left home and went to college. Vacations, hobbies, weddings, all were planned around school breaks. Now I just realized that I no longer have that constraint. Together as a family, we have constraints, but if I want to go to someone's wedding or visit someone, I don't have to worry about planning around a break.
I am at loose ends however. I relish that freedom I loath to give that up for a job. But I need to be doing something, not only to keep busy but also to grow. I mean, where is the challenge in staying home with no kids. I've been drifting these past weeks since coming here because our living situation is temporary and all of our belongings are in storage. We will be leaving this apartment for a different one next week. I hope to get myself back into some semblance of a schedule. Befoer, I would get up to make my husband breakfast before work. But now he is getting up a 6 and to be quite honest, that is not really my favorite time of day. I guess I'll just have to suck it up and start going to bed earlier. Grrrr. I am so a night person.
I am looking forward to having my sewing and cooking stuff back. We are going on a cruise the middle of April and I've been designing some cool stuff I want to wear.
I'm also looking forward to cooking again. I have got tons of recipes I want to try out and I have started to get them all together in a database. I am going to review them and share them on this blog. Fell free to cook along with me.

I feel bad for Max. He was running around yesterday and he ran into a set of bleachers (note to everyone, don't run full speed while looking the other way) and scrapped the bottom of his paw pad off. It bled everywhere. We wrapped it and it finally stopped bleeding this morning. Now he walks on his toes and lays around in his crate, I didn't put him there. He just wants to be there. It is driving Toby crazy because he wants to play. Oh well.

  1. Poor puppy. Our dog hurt her paw somehow yesterday while we were out of the house. She was limping so badly but we couldn't figure out what was wrong. She refused to lay down and now she's limping less badly today. Brandon says she was trying to walk it off lol I think I'd cry if she hurt her paw like Max and was bleeding. :( You're a good puppy mama
