Papa's Petite Bijoux Noir

Husband has decided on a name for the new puppy. Keeping in line with our Cajun French heritage, he has named puppy "Papa's Petite Bijoux Noir" of Daddy's Little Black Jewel. We are calling her Bijoux. Here are a few pictures of her:

Baby makes five...

We have a dog. No, we have ANOTHER dog. After weeks of back a forth "discussions" about getting a third dog (and becoming those people), our night started off like this-

me: I REALLLLY don't want another dog.

husband: I REALLLLLLY want another dog.

me: Let's have a baby instead!

husband: I REALLLLLYYY want a dog.

me: I don't want another dog.

husband: I think I want a dog more than you don't want a dog...

And so, we have ANOTHER dog. That makes three. One outside and two inside. Try to keep up.

Within minutes, my husband magically found a woman with a dog. We jump in the car (at 9 p.m. mind you) and head to Conroe, make that NORTH of Conroe. The first thing I notice when we get in the car is that the time is 9:11 p.m.

I'm not a believer in signs, but that can't be a good one.

9:35 p.m. Check engine light, VSC, and a slew of other lights all come on.

9:45 p.m. I-45 is closed, due to construction.

Am I the only one who thinks these are all bad signs???

9:50- 10:22 Argue about dog names. I like Maxine. We can call her Max. Husband wants to wait for a "sign"--- clearly mocking me.

10:23 p.m. Exit off Interstate onto the creepiest street I have ever driven on. There are NO LIGHTS out there. None. Not one street light, porch light, headlight. It's eerie. Seems like the first two minutes of Law and Order:SVU to me.

10:30 p.m. We find a driveway that appears to have the address we are looking for, but no house. I tell husband to call Dog Lady and get some directions. She instructs us to, "Keep going down the dirt road 'till you can't go any longer. You'll see a cell phone tower on the left and we are JUST PAST THE GRAVEYARD on the right".

Seriously? I can't think of any worse signs if I tried.

We arrive at Dog Lady's house.

husband: Hello, I'm husband, nice to meet you.

dog lady: Hi. I'm Maxine. (Sign.)

We pick a little black female and make the long drive back home. We are taking suggestions for a name. Husband wants something French.

I firmly believe that all "signs" point to Maxine.

Beatin the heat...

Here in Texas, it's not uncommon for temperatures to rise above 100 degrees. To beat this heat, my darling husband purchased and assembled a little backyard oasis for me. However, Reba refuses to give up the good float...

Five Things

So, my week has been rough. With the David women setting up camp at Lourdes Hospital and work driving me insane, I'm in serious need of a cocktail hour. Since that doesn't look likely today, I'm forcing myself to play the "Five Things to be Thankful For" game. And here we go...

1. My Mom. She wonderful and silly and has completely changed the days of the week to suit her routine. (Monday, Tuesday, Sabeday, Thursday, Friday, Sabeday, Sunday)

2. Now and Laters.

3. Indigo Joe's. Our gangs newest favorite lunch spot.

4. Reba, because she is always happy to see me.

5. Tide pens. Because spilling coffee on your white shirt first thing in the morning can really put a damper on the rest of your day if you don't have one.

That wasn't so hard...

Zandra with a Z

Anyone who watches Will and Grace, knows that Jack takes acting lessons from a woman named Zandra. Who he famously referees to as "Zandra with Z, not Saundra with an S. Because Zandra with a Z goes zzzz not ssss.

Today I had a meeting with a lady named Zandra (with a Z). Needless to say, I didn't listen to much of what she said because I was playing Will and Grace in my head.

Sabe... no longer in boots.

Many things have happen during my lack of posting, for starters Sabe is no longer in boots, and is getting bigger by the minute. See what I mean...

Long Time Gone

So, up until today, I had forgotten about my ill-planned blogging venture. As evident, I haven't posted since December of last year. I'll attempt to make the effort and update more often, but that's a promise that might be easy to break.

Until next time, check out Nev's awesome Project Run(A)Way blog (link posted to the left) for some hilarious takes on one of my favorite shows.
