A Stone's Throw

So I've heard some clamor for news on our family...Like a pebble filled beach, some of our news is larger, some seems much smaller and some is super tiny but puts a huge cramp in your style if you step on it.


The Big Stones
I'm loving my new job. I don't usually get into too many details on this blog about our careers, personal life, etc.  But my new job is great. It's expanding my skill set, allowing me to focus on what I'm good at and I have a great team to work with that is supportive and fosters positive work and personal pieces of my life. 


 Middle Size Stones
Our dog is amazing. Since we don't have children yet, she's truly our baby.  Embarrassing, but true...we even have a puppy-car seat for her since she'd prefer to ride in our laps, it's safer to belt her to the seat and keep her safe.  In addition, she's fantastic - we've enrolled her in agility training.  Yup, the kind of training that has her literally jumping through hoops for us.  We'll put some videos up on the YouTube/Smugmug sites sometime soon.  Enjoy - please note that the Hubby is the primary trainer.  She seems to love it!

Tiny #$@*$% Stones
The Hubby spent time in the ER last night.  After five hours, they sent him home with a prescription for two drugs and his own personal pee funnel.  Sorry to be crude, but it's true.  Apparently he has a kidney stone the size of a single pea.  What the big deal is, I'm not sure, since when I have children they'll be the size of a watermelon when I finally give birth (God willing).  Regardless, he was in tremendous pain and very sick all day yesterday and thrilled to be feeling better last night and today.  I'm sure the follow up on "taking care" of the stone will be very funny when we look back on it, but I am certain that Hubby will fail to see the humor in it this week.  Too bad, stupid pebbles!

There are two sides to every story...






As many of you know I am a huge Twilight Saga fan. To further prove this, I thought what better way than to add a countdown widget!
