Here are a few funny shots of the dogs. Angel has a small crate, because she is only 10 pounds. Well, she spend alot of time in there, even when we are home. Maggie is still a puppy, therefore she just wants to play. First she got into to Angels bed alone, this caused much drama for Angel. Then she sat in the doorway and barked a playful bark trying to get Angel out to play, then she gave up and joined her in the crate. Angel didn't smile on this too much, but she didn't fight back as much as I'd thought. Maybe they'll be friends soon. LOL!

Meet Maggie!

Meet Maggie Mae, our new puppy. She joined our family last Friday. She was just too cute not to bring home. Rob works for the city, she was abandoned at the park, where he found her. The city dog catcher picked her up and hoped she'd be looked for. NOT!! She stayed at the dog kennel for a week, 2 weeks and then to the county shelter, and then who knows what next. Well, every night Rob would say "you really need to see this dog." Okay, I saw her, and she came home with us. I took her to the vet today to see if we could learn something about her. She is a Border Collie Mix, she is only 8-10 weeks old, based on her paws he thinks she will be 30-40 pounds. She is a very gentle dog. Very playful, as she is still very young. She is great with Austin and Zach. Angel, the first dog, is not too fond of her yet. However, each day is a little better than the day before for her. See, she has been the only pet, and very spoiled for the past 3+ years.
This picture is Angel wrapped in a blanket straight from the dryer. She is too funny, she hears the dryer beep, and follows us to see what we will do with the warm clothes. Maggie is lying next to her worn out from a day of play.
Ihave told my husband no more looking at the puppies at the kennel.

Well, I paid for my car repairs on Friday. Today I hitched a ride with my sister to get it picked up. She is working at my store, and worked this evening, so she willingly le me ride along. I am going to check gas mileage on my car now. I'm curious as to whether or not my gas milege will increase due to the nice hefty repair I had done.

What a day!

On my way to work today my car just stopped running. It kind of slowed down and then it was fine, then it did the same thing again but I had to pull over onto the shoulder, and then it just died, and wouldn't start again. Usually we only have 1 employee at the store between 6-7 am, therefore I'd been walking--about 1 mile--but 2 weeks ago we changed our shift time to 7-3, 3-11 and 11-7. I go in at 7 also, therefore there were 2 people at the store and one of them came to get me. I had to get the car towed, and then I got the great phone call about what was wrong.
The fuel pump. $719.00 to fix it. THis included the part, towing and labor. It will not be done until tomorrow afternoon at the earliest. I am off this weekend, this is a good thing. I am so thankful that we had a little money saved and were planning on getting a new water heater, I guess that can wait.

Well, it has been so stinking long since I've updated. UGH! I think of post often, then I don't have time. Imagine that.

Work has been extremely busy. Okay, just in case you don't know. I manage a convenience store with a Subway in it. So that means I have a store, a gas station and a restaraunt. Fun huh! Actually I really, really enjoy my job. From the end of March until May 10 Subway had a $5 footlong sale. EVERY sub that we had you could get a footlong for $5. Sounds great huh! Actually it was great for the consumer. We were so busy we couldn't see straight. The sale ended, and the continued a new $5 every day value menu. Which now means that we have 8 of our menu items for $5 each day. This in turn means we haven't really slowed down much at all. Then on top of this, it is graduation time. LOTS of big party orders. So needless to say I've been a little on the tired side of life lately. In fact last weekend I came home from work on Friday and fell asleep at 6:45 (Jordan informed me of the time) and slept until 9:30 on Saturday morning.

Oh, today our fuel is about $.10 cheaper than the surrounding towns and then it is about $.20 cheaper than here in UC. Evidendtly we've been on the news this morning. Which means that my store is beyond busy.

We went camping the weekend of Memorial day. We went with Rob's sisters and their families. It was so much fun. It rained while we set up, and then not much after that. It progressively got warmer. The kids had a great time.

We have been attending a church in Muncie Indiana now. I know, I know, we keep changing, and we just joined a church, and it was a hard decision. Maybe sometime I can explain it all. Most people don't understand. We are thinking this may be the move that ends "most" moves.

Today I am off, the boys are doing their chores, with a little assistance. Zach has a dentis appoitment, so we will leave for the appointment and eat something (I'm thinking Taco Bell) and the go and see a movie. Horton hears a Who is playing at the cheap theater. We've all been wanting to see it, so this is the perfect time.

Well, I must go and "assist" with the chores of the day.

I sure miss my blog friends.

some pictures from Memorial Day

I took LOTS and LOTS of pictures when we went on our camping trip over Memorial Day weekend. However, I have evidently deleted them from my computer and my memory card--since I have already printed them. I really had some good one to. UGH!!! We had a great time. We went with Rob's 2 sisters and their families. It was much fun. We each took one day and were in charge of the food. YUMMO! It was nice, we had good food and didn't have to do the work the entire time. We never even had hamburgers or hotdogs once. It was nice to spend time with family. We all traveled almost exactly to the 1/2 way point between where we live and where they all live. The kids enjoyed spending time together, getting dirty, and all the fun stuff kids do. Acacia is at the present the only girl, therefore she is the Princess of the family.
