February Update

Sometimes I honestly forget that I have a blog. I only recently remembered because of my friend SCarr's post about the goings-on in her life. If for no other reason, click on that link so you can see a picture of her cat with a piece of bread on its head. Made me laugh FOREVER.

Anyway I thought I should update my readers on the goings-on in MY life.

The New Years resolutions are going fairly well. I've kind of got into a routine of going to the gym; last week I went 4 times. Even yesterday Paul and I did yoga together. Love that I can do stuff like that with my husband! We have 3 knitting sessions scheduled at a local studio here in Coeur d'alene (yes I said we - Paul's doing it too. Have I mentioned that I love that guy?!) so I'm finally going to learn how to knit. I've gotten in the pool a few times for classes, but not for swimming laps, but my fire for swimming has been relit and I can't wait to get started. One credit card will be paid off this month but the other financial goals have been slow to get going. Weight loss: meh. Still working on it.

The pups are good - Stella turned 1 year old this month. She is showing some signs of skittishness around unfamiliar people and places, which I don't like. We've tried to socialize her quite a bit but when she sees our neighbors she barks at them and when I take her to work she is really nervous. We'll have to just continue exposing her to different places and situations. Kobe is still fluffy and cute. The pups are friends sometimes, but Kobe still hates it when Stella bites his ears.

Work is going well - nothing has really changed in the last few months other than I've started considering looking for a job closer to Bismarck (probably Minneapolis) so that we can be closer to my family and friends. I love North Idaho but I have no ties here so I'm not really sad if we leave. I'd rather have the chance to see my mom more often!

Well I can't think of anything else that's happened recently so I'm going to close. Hope all you guys are having a great February!


  1. One of my old roommate's learned to knit with her boyfriend, he was actually better then her lol he could knit ANYTHING by just looking at it, I still have a few hats they made together. I think that is a great hobby, and useful!

    Good job for paying off one credit card. You will get them all paid off eventually and you will feel soooooooooo good!

    and thanks for the shout out :)

  2. Good job that you're going to the gym! And taking knitting lessons (with Paul, no less!) sounds fun. I'll be expecting a little something made of yarn (a scarf, maybe?). We'll welcome you guys back to the Midwest with open arms if you decide to move!
