Boo I didn’t post anything last week 🙁
Which is one point against me in my quest to blog weekly. This will be another post about me and what’s going on lately (more importantly, what will be happening in the near future, aka the rest of 2014) so if you don’t want to know about this, a bid you adieu!
So in less than two weeks I will be going on my honeymoon, to Rome. That’s right, I’m headed off to Italy and I am so excited! I can’t wait to eat a bunch of food (aka pasta, pizza, gelato), tour the city and eat a bunch more food. I am gone almost two whole weeks including travel time, and when we get back we are going to be picking up our little puppy!
Yes a puppy! Isn’t everything so exciting! Because we won’t be home before we get our puppy, I’m trying to making sure that I get everything ready for when we get back. So far I’ve gotten food and water bowls, a brush and poop bags. I was undecided on the crate/carrier thing, and also the bed; and I do believe our cute little bundle of joy will be coming with a collar and leash – so that is good (oh and some food… thank goodness). I also apologize if I miss a couple of posts at the end of November, as I will be… in Rome!
I’ve never had a dog of my own before, growing up we had cats that lived in the garage… so getting a high commitment pet that lives in the house is a lot different. Oh, and I will also need to get some baby gates, because I plan on letting the puppy roam free during the day while we are away, but having the upstairs and basement blocked off. Hmm what else do I need? I have no idea! I’m trying to think of things, but honestly I think it’s like, you don’t know you need things until the moment you need them. And I didn’t get any toys yet, so maybe I will let her pick her own 🙂 Oh and I also want to get a little bell because I want to try and train the puppy to ring the bell when she wants to go outside for a pee… Good thing Christmas is coming up, I can probably get some Santa Sleigh Bells and repurpose them.
What else is new? Not much right now, I think I will be seeing some friends nearer to Christmas time, so that is also exciting! Because I live in the Sudbury area, I feel like no one ever comes to visit me. I mean, it’s far, not on the way to anything… and cold! Speaking of which, it snowed a couple of inches last week, and on Halloween none the less! So upsetting (did I mention it was a couple of inches… not just a little drizzle!) But thankfully it has melted since then… but I know all this recent rain we’ve been having is just the winter planning an early attack.
Well, I think this is all the exciting news I have so far, so until next time!
