Back to the beginning

Tomorrow we are going to meet our new puppy, name TBD. Or at least that’s the plan. That means just one more day of a puppy-free life. There’s a lot that’s nice about living puppy-free. For example, generally speaking, no one in our home just randomly throws up on the carpet. Also, no one has to be carried outside to pee in sub-zero temperatures at midnight. No one needs to be walked and no one barks at the mailman. But, there’s a lot that I’ve missed in the months we’ve been puppy-free. I’ve missed snuggling with a fur ball, I’ve missed watching Molly play with a dog and I’ve missed being greeted with four paws and a wagging tail. It’s going to be a lot of work, and there’s no way we’re going to get lucky enough to have another Gracie in our lives, but I think it’ll be really great and I’m so excited.

    You’re correct, it won’t be Gracie, but you’ll be amazed at how quickly your new baby will become an equally treasured member of the family with her own unique characteristics that will make her every bit as wonderful as Gracie.

    That being said, the puppy shit ( and I do mean shit) gets old really fast. Chloe at 1 year, 5 months decided to try out one of my shoes this morning. There is a reason why she’s known as “Devil Dog” and lucky for her she is cute and loving and has stolen my heart.

    I met two new dogs yesterday – the sweetest 5 year old Golden Retriever and a nine month old I don’t know what. It made me kinda wish we were getting a 5 year old. That said, I always wondered what little puppy baby Gracie was like and I’m excited to now be able to experience knowing our family pup from when she was itty bitty.

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
The new @ancorakingst is everything. #ancoracoffee #ancorakingst #madisonwi #ancora #ancoramadison #madisoncoffeeshop #kingstreetbusinesses
