it's been awhile

This summer has gone by so fast and I haven't even accomplished anything. I had so much that I wanted to do this summer but all I remember doing is work. blah. I am NOT going to be the type of person who lives for work. I need to slow down and smell the flowers along the way. Like this weekend, I had planed on doing a in depth "spring" cleaning. We've been remodeling our downstairs by adding an additional bedroom/guest room. Now that's it's finally done, there is that fine layer of dust over everything and it's driving me NUT-O! So I gathered up all my blankets in the house b/c I was going to take them all to the laundry mat to wash them all at once, and once I stepped out side to load them in the back of my truck, I realized how humid and sticky it was outside. blah. And b/c I'm your typical Gemini, once I got back into the house I got sidetracked and started doing other stuff. Then I landed on the mac checking my google-reader I've been behind on, only to find out my internet connection was acting wacko. So I braved the phone call to those lovely repair people and finally got everything back, and next thing I know it's starting to get dark out. WTF! Wasn't it just 9am??? Did I just fall into some sort of time-warp? So needless to say, I didn't accomplish anything yesterday and that's how my whole summer has been. And as I'm sitting here in my scrapbook room/empty space to store stuff b/c I don't know where to put it/office with paper work all over the floor, I'm realizing I need to get off my bum and clean & organize this mess I call my life. But I sit and look at everything feeling so overwhelmed b/c I don't know where to start or how to start. "Calgon, take me away!!!" Oh! And I've got the TV on in the background with the food network on. One word....gelato...yummy!! :D

I did finally get my new camera I've wanted. Woohoo! It's so pretty and so much lighter than my old one. Wow! I couldn't believe that. I've already done my first little non-pro photo shoot with my SIL and her dogs. She really wanted to get some of Chance with her. Chance had a huge tumor removed a month ago and found out it was a really bad form of cancer (not that there is a good form of cancer) and she pasted away last weekend. She was just the sweetest dog ever. Such a good mom she was to her pups too. Here are a few that I took that I really love.

In a couple of weeks we'll be the proud owners of a baby Great Dane puppy. So excited! We've seen here twice and she is just the cutest little thing. I can't wait to bring her home. I just know Zona's going to be happy having a sister to play with now. Since Zona's real name is Raising Arizona, we've wanted to stay with movie titles for names. So DH came up with Reign Over Me and call her Reign. I LOVE it! So when we meet with the breeder last monday, we told her to start calling her Reign. I would post a picture, but that would mean I have to unload them from my little P&S camera in my purse. Oh, all right. I'll try to post some photos of here later today. I really do have to tackle this mess in here and the mess in our house before our nephew moves down here in a couple of weeks.
