puppies take up so much time!

What I have NOT been able to do since all of my time goes into my puppy

*Do my own laundry because I'm washing the towels I've used to clean up his mess. 
*Take pictures or list anything for my online shop. 
*Spend true alone time with my hubby. 
*Have a scratch free hand and arm. (he loves to play...)
*Really clean my house. 
*Create this blog post in one sitting. 

BUT it's all worth it. Roscoe is loving, so cute and quick to learn.  He already knows how to sit, lie down, shake and roll over! (though, also... quite the A.D.D. pup)
and why it is extremely hard to take a picture of him lately that is not blurry...

Something I'm sad to say that I've been seeing every day: A car wreck. 

OH & ALSO I just got a part time sales associate position at Urban Outfitters in the French Quarter! 
Take Note of this sweet deal:
 $10 Off orders of $75 or more using code URBANLEGEND (ends Nov 1)
I don't know how all of my profit is not going to go right back in to that store... 

Things I want right now

Thanks to those who have participated in my polls. I suppose they will remain extremely inaccurate until I get more readers and voters. ;-) but they are still fun!

Many things in my life are on PAUSE right now.

So, in these things I've been a bit M.I.A. - including my online store, blogging, and things of that nature.

But the good thing is I have some great opportunities. No final decisions yet. But huge life changes are coming.
So fortunately, yet unfortunately, I will continue to be a bit M.I.A. for a little while longer...

But no worries, I will be back. 

What's your favorite color? Take the poll to the right! 
Mine is Teal.  
Last poll: Sour Apple won over Grape  9-3

Candy. A Secret. Time. A Puppy.

FYI the Midcentury Modern Furniture posts continue, but I like to do random posts in between series. :-)

Perhaps you have already, or are about to NOTICE the poll I have on the right side of my page. It asks the?, "if you had to choose between sour apple or grape flavored candy, which would you choose?

I prefer Grape, personally. BUT my husband prefers sour apple. 

See, grape nor sour apple is either of our favorites. I mean, usually, everyone's first choice would be strawberry, cherry, or watermelon. So, the question intrigues interesting results. I've polled people at work, and it's fun to watch people think about it. Sometimes it's  instant; sometimes they have to think about it. Sometimes they hate both so much; they cannot answer. 

to folding FITTED sheets? 

Mine end up looking like some misconstrued blob. 
I guess they require extra patience. But who has time for that? 

I HATE TIME.  (but I do love this CLOCK
Things always end up taking longer than you planned.
And somehow, you run out of time.
If time was for sale, I'm sure I could not afford it. 

We've decided that we want a Mini Australian Shepherd.
One Day. 

Aren't they so beautiful!? 
(this is just a few of many google images i've been perusing through)

They are bred smaller to do well in apartments, but still need lots of exercise.  We will be in shape! BUT sadly, It will be six months or more before we can afford one. I hope we are blessed to find one to rescue from a nearby pound. (& a redhead would fit in with the family...)
