The reason I haven't blogged or stitched in a week. Her name is Polly PrissyPants and she's the newest addition to our family. No, she is not as innocent as she looks. This is the only picture I've been able to take of her because she's always on the move. Her current mission in life is to see how many times I can take her out to pee, call her a good girl, give her a treat, and then let her back in the house to immediately pee behind my back. The Dog Whisperer says that if you take your dog out and they have to go again real soon it means you didn't let them finish. My question is "How long is long enough to keep them outside?" She peed three times, pooped once and came in and peed about 2 minutes later. What am I doing wrong? I don't remember being this exhausted when I had a newborn. I'm definitely getting exercise, but the Pee/Poop Patrol is going to do me in.
In other news, The sample CD in the new issue of Paste(Shins cover) is great. I bought it because there's an interview with Lucinda Williams and she's one of my all time favorites. If you haven't heard her record Car Wheels on a Gravel Road I highly recommend it. She's a great songwriter. I'm also excited about the new Shins CD. I love the track included on this sample CD.
The sun is shining here in the Sunshine State so if I can I'll take an updated picture of By the Bay's 13th Colony Bay. I've made a little progress since my last photo. I will not get it finished this month like I had hoped but such is life. Why can't I finish it? Well we fell under the spell of LOST. It's the greatest tv show ever. Ok, maybe I just don't have much of a life but we have plowed through Season 1 and Season 2 on DVD and caught up with Season 3 at ABC.com and I'm anxiously awaiting the new episode that will air Feb. 7th. Of course due to some kind of dispute we lost our ABC station so I'll have catch it on Feb. 8th at ABC.com. Can you believe we don't have an ABC station any more?
