Happy New Year!

Well I guess it's about time that I actually start writing on this blog. After all we have been married almost 6 months now! Please excuse the look of it. I was trying to do some more creative things with it but they weren't working and were just plain frustrating me and so I decided to just leave it for now.

Here you will find little snippets from our daily lives. Most of them probably won't be very exciting and I'm sure not going to make any promises that there will be posts on a regular basis but check back every now and then and see how we're doing.

Usually Sunday is my day that I spend at least 4-6 hours in my classroom preparing for the coming week - making lesson plans, copies, organizing, cleaning/ picking up etc. Today, however, was a day that was spent relaxing. We still have tomorrow off of school for Christmas break so I decided that school work could wait until tomorrow. About the only thing that did get accomplished today was that Tess got a bath. Tess has been having some skin issues - lots of itching (no it's not fleas!) and some dry scaley patches on her belly. We are trying to switch her from one kind of food to another to see if that helps thinking that it might be an allergic reaction to chicken. Also the dry weather we have here doesn't help either. Have you every tried to bathe a 70ish pound dog? It isn't as easy as it may seem. First there is the problem of getting a dog that big wet. If we had a hand held shower sprayer that worked right it might help the situation, but we don't. So I did the best that I could and so far (knock on wood) she is a little less itchy - but then again she has had a pretty lazy day also doing not much other than sleeping.

Bentley is doing well also. He got a hair cut right before Christmas and it's super short so he's been wearing lots of sweaters and little doggy shirts to stay warm. He also likes to cuddle under the blankets when we're curled up on the couch. In fact as I type this I have Bentley curled up on the couch to my left and Tess curled up on the couch to my right.

Here is a picture of the puppies looking out the window at Santa when he came around on the fire truck right before Christmas.
