Internet Blackout 2008: An Update

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been on the Internets for a little while. My local wireless Internet provider was upgrading their towers and in the process we lost our signal... blah, blah, two weeks later it finally was fixed.
What did I do during the blackout? Well I'll tell you. I turned 39 thank you for all your sweet Birthday wishes. I got a haircut and a much needed eyebrow wax, can you say uni brow? I voted, my guy lost... c'est la vie. I had the flu it was awful I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

We welcomed a new addition to our family we adopted Little Sarah Palin.

A year ago we lost our Dachshund Sam to the coyotes. For about a month now my kids started to ask on a daily basis if we could get another dog. After much pleading and bargaining El Jefe agreed we could get a new dog. We found Sarah at the county animal control we knew she was special when we first saw her. She was all calm and happy in a room full barking hyper dogs. She is a Toy Poodle but she doesn't act like one. She is very friendly and hardly barks which is a big plus. She's a gem of a dog. We don't let Sarah outside alone we've learned our lesson and don't want to lose her to the coyotes. Guess who is gets to take the dog out at six in the morning in her pajamas and bed head? That's right, me.
