Molly's Musings-- I'm going to be a BIG dog!

Hi. It's Molly again.

I went to the vet again, and it turns out I'm getting a little plump. I weighed in at 25.2 pounds.

My friends, I'm not even 4 months old. I am going to be a big dog.

But I still look little next to The Tall Man: 

This was taken while I was waiting in line at the vet, and see how I'm not looking at the camera? It's because I was looking at my future. An adult pitbull (or AmStaff, as The Soft Lady calls me.... much nicer connotation than pitbull) was there-- HUGE!-- she had to have been 100 pounds! Her owner was holding on to the leash with all her might and could barely control her.

The Soft Lady just sighed. She saw the future too, and she's apparently not too happy about it.

Don't worry about her. She likes the STINKIN' CATS! Look who she lets sleep on her bed:

Stinkin' cat

I have finally been pricked with enough needles to be deemed presentable to be out with other dogs, so I get to start going on walks next week. The Soft Lady bought me a harness collar to practice walking on a leash, and I did awesome!  The Soft Lady was quite impressed with me, especially when I was in the vet's office with all the other dogs. I can't wait for her to take me to the park!

Until then, I am content to sit and watch tv with the Loud Boy:

 See you next week!

Weekend Update-- BK Was a Good Boy!

Hello, my friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

BK finally, FINALLY had a good week! He was green all week at school AND at the after school program! Praise Jesus! He got to pick a present out for being so good, so he picked out a mini lego set:

Meanwhile, The Agent stayed home from work and put together a new shed:

the kids helped once they got home from school

And I went to work and worked. And enjoyed a Jamba Juice:

6 servings of fruits and vegetables! 

On Saturday, we had baseball, and BK did... OK. His hitting was great, he hit it off the tee the first time every time he was up to bat. And he is absolutely the best thrower on the team. If it was just about hitting and throwing, he would absolutely be ready to move up to the next level. But the maturity just isn't there. He doesn't have the attention span to last even the three innings of tee ball, so I don't know what he's going to do next year when it jumps up to five innings. Still he's pretty dang cute:

When we got home, the kids and I did a bunch of laundry while The Agent slept, which really chaps my hide, but he did put together a shed for me, so I guess I can't complain too much.

Please excuse my messy house-- keepin' it real here. 
When the laundry was done, I added some new Jams to my nails. I am such a Jamberry fan. I wish I was a little better at applying them!

 On Sunday, we took Miss Molly to the vet, and then I spent the rest of the afternoon lounging with a book and a margarita while the kids played outside and The Agent grilled a rack of ribs.

A nice and quiet weekend!

Molly's Musings-- Nothin' Much

Hi! It's Molly again.

Can you believe it? No one in the family took a SINGLE picture of me all week. The Soft Lady took this picture of me a couple of weeks and it's still her favorite.

I am like twice this size now.

It was pretty slow around these parts this week. I am doing much better about going outside to go to the bathroom-- I only had one accident all week. 

My favorite person in the world right now is The Agent. I wait for him to lay down on the couch and then I take a running leap so I can curl up next to him. Luckily, he lays on the couch a lot, so I don't have to wait very long. 

It turns out that I am kind of a  sucky watch dog. The neighbors had some maintenance men working in their backyard the other day, and Mama Dog was going crazy! Barking and growling at the fence.... it was really making it hard to get in my 10 am nap. The Soft Lady was actually a little annoyed with ME, of all people! She said I need to learn to be a better guard dog. But seriously, what is there to guard? They were in the NEIGHBOR'S yard, not ours. If they were to step foot into our yard, then they better watch out! Grrr!

The Tall Man has been talking about taking me camping lately. He says it's important to get me socialized at a young age. I'm all for it! I hear there are SQUIRRELS in the mountains! 

Until next time!

Weekend Update-- Ready for Bed!

It's 8:42 pm on Sunday as I write this. By the time I write it and add the pictures and whatnot, it will probably be close to 10.

I want to go to bed NOW.

Friday started out with me going to the school to watch this cutie sing and dance about the importance of going green:

He's so cute.... but then he messed it up throwing rocks at the school window. The start of a lovely weekend. 

On Saturday, we went to BK's baseball game, and that was a fabulous time. His punishment for throwing rocks was that he had to play the outfield. He didn't even care, he just loves the game. And, I know he's only 5, and I'm his mama, but he is INCREDIBLY talented! He caught a ball from center field in the third inning and threw it all the way home. The boy has an arm! 

Always ready.... even in the out field. Can't say as much for Coach Daddy!

After the game, I left The Agent and the kids at home to fend for themselves while I had a GNO. My two girlfriends and I went out to dinner and then to a comedy show. We love comedy shows-- such a great way to de-stress!

On Sunday, Bug had a birthday party, so I used the opportunity to indulge in a treat: 

Peach green tea lemonade-- my favorite summertime treat! 

I didn't buy anything all that exciting-- a bunch of cleaning products, new shoes for BK, groceries for the week-- but I did find three new books to ass to my Amazon wish list: 

Can't wait to start my Summer beach reading!

What did you do this weekend? Anything fun?

too young?

Bug is 9. Isn't she cute?

She's smart and pretty and witty. She's going to be quite the catch soon.

But for now, she's a drama queen.

"Mom, you HAVE to let me shave my legs!"

"Ummm.... no. The earlier you start shaving, the longer you have to do it for the rest of your life."

"No, Mom. You HAVE to. A cute boy sat by on the bus the other day, and then he saw my hairy legs and he looked at me with DISGUST. I'm wearing pants until you let me shave."

"I'm sure you're exaggerating. Your legs are fine. And you're about to start swimming, the hair will fade from the sun and the chlorine."

Bug didn't answer. Instead, she took my phone and took this picture:

Hmm... she might need to shave.

Molly's Musings-- Livin' the Dream

Hi! It's Molly again.

It was pretty quiet around these parts for the week, and The Soft Lady is all paranoid about her computer, so she's not going to let me play on it for very long. Apparently SOMEBODY--  not mentioning any names-- was chewing on a cord and it made something go haywire. But I hear that The Tall Man is a genius and was able to fix it, so all is right with the world again.

The most exciting thing that happened this week is that it rained, so I got to play in the mud for a bit!

The Soft Lady wasn't very excited to see that, and she threatened to give me yet another bath.

There has been some discussion on whether or not I think I'm human. Let me make one thing abundantly clear. I know I am a dog. I'm thankful I am a dog! All other creatures WISH they were a dog, especially the STINKIN' CATS.

But yes, I admit, I enjoy the finer things in life, namely the sofa. I'm not sure why Mama Dog insists on sleeping on the floor when there is a giant dog bed in the middle of the living room?

What can I say? I'm living the dream.

weekend update

No weekend update today..... my computer crashed out hard on Sunday and I've had the agent working hard since then to restore everything. It looks like he got my photos back, and that was the most important thing. I lost Microsoft office, and I had to reinstall chrome, which meant I lost all my bookmarks. Bummer, but I can live with it! I probably didn't need most of those websites, anyway!

I'm hoping I can get going again by Wednesday or Thursday... until then, I'll be writing on my kindle, which isn't nearly as effective, so the posts will be short and sweet!

~ the lovely one
