Too Cute

Sometimes my dog is way to cute, which is extremely frustrating, especially when she decided to make my rocket dogs her newest chew toy.

Exhibit A
This is just all-together cute, how can you yell @ this face, especially when she tilts her head and gives you Bambi eyes.

Exhibit B
Her extremely cute white goatee, and her nubbin. This nubbin will wag at supersonic speeds which I swear will send her skyward one day.

Exhibit C
My favorite, her white toes, I want to kiss them they are so darn cute!

In conclusion dog, stay the heck away from my shoes, or I may finally mush you like I've always wanted to do in response to your cuteness.

Festival of Trees

We went to the Festival of Trees last night. Our main purpose behind going was to see the tree donated on behalf of Dalan's grandpa who passed away just over a year ago. While riding his bike he was struck by a car running a red light. The tree was decorated with a bike theme and had some really creative ideas. We are very thankful for everyone who donated time and materials to make this a reality. The proceeds from all of the sales at the Festival of Trees go to Primary Children's, so a very worthy cause.

So after I finally accepted the fact that my dog looked like a greasy hobo I made her an appointment for a full treatment @ the groomers.  It was like a spa day, she got a shampoo, a cut, her nails done, even the hair plucked from inside her ears.  I was actually terrified for what she would turn out like given her first grooming experience as seen below.

Here is the new Tobey?

Which one do you like best? Lets make this interesting like all the trendy blogs leave me a comment and you can win something like a handful of this crunch n' munch

And Then.....

Hannah beat my high score on Tetris, jerk.

Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very-Bad Day

Remember that book from around 2nd grade that I'm sure we all read.  The poor kid has everything that could possibly go wrong in one day go wrong.  I've now experienced one of those where I can't catch a break.  The last 24 hours have been an absolute joke.  It started last night when I found out I had accidentally deleted one of my memory cards that had 5 pictures for my final on it.  After realizing there was no getting them back I had to search all of my old photos from this semester and try to bs some of them to work for the project.  After I found some that would work ok I uploaded them to Sam's Club website to order the prints.  After they were all uploaded I got an error message saying that they were all sized wrong and had to be cropped on their website.  I couldn't just resize the picture I actually had to take substance off of everyone.  I've already spent hours on these making them exactly right and the right size, so now I have to cut off my hard work and they don't look right anymore.  This morning I woke up late, ran into work, and got chewed out, all before I had even turned on my computer.  I had a million problems to deal with @ work and in the middle of a near nervous breakdown the boss calls asking for a report, that I forgot to do.  Don't worry though when I go to get the info for the report I found out that 3 of my computers are fried, no idea what happened, or how to fix it.  Then I find out that an update didn't go through last week and we are 3 days behind.  I took a lunch and went to pick up my pictures from Sam's when I find out they are out of chemical, and my pictures aren't even ready.  This is really frustrating because I did them early so I would have a few hours to fix any problems.  So I go back to work and get to deal with all of the same stuff again.  After work I went back to get my pictures, and they were done.  I had 21 prints, and one of them was huge, that was the only one I was worried about, because its pretty hard to screw up a 4x6.  I checked out the big picture and it looked fine, I stopped @ WalMart on the way home to buy a frame to house the huge picture because chances are with my day its going to get ruined somehow.  The lady couldn't find a barcode and ended up getting out her keys to un-wrap part of it so she could scan it.  Once I got home I opened up all of my pictures and found out every 4x6 is horribly underexposed.  Not one is even close to what it should be.  Being extremely frustrated I pull out the large picture to frame it because that will make me feel better right? Well when Walmart lady tried to break into the package with her keys she actually scratched a huge portion of the glass on the frame.  So now I have to go return that.  Oh did I mention I found out as I was leaving work that I have to work tomorrow night?  So that means no time to re-do my pictures, or purchase a decent frame.  Great.
