I decided to post a pic of Sunny. The too cute puppy that Cody went to play with. (I think I hear Ames squeeeing)

Also, I forgot to mention that Bob only had an extra long weekend as something came up at work. Right now we are hoping the week of April 7th will be a great time to take a break. We did go to Niagara on the Lake (where we got engaged) and saw most of the shops. It was Easter Monday so some of the stores were closed but we were just glad to be out and about together.

The new job is kicking my butt. Since I want to make a good impression I am gluing my butt to the computer chair and working until my eyes cross. Since there is a lot of repetition and it is a bit monotonous I tend to notice when my legs have fallen asleep after not moving for 2 solid hours. Ooops. Now I'm taking a break at the mid point and walking on the treadmill to keep my legs from seizing up on me. I know it's just because it's all new but I want to help my body adapt as soon as possible.

The thing is I am creating database so accuracy is the main concern. You know how you have been doing a task for so long that you can't really remember how to do it without overthinking it and then making keypunch errors?

Just me again?

I swear tonight my fingers were working independently of my brain. Bob calls me fast fingers cause no only can I type fairly well, I can do numbers like a sonofabitch. I'm just saying. I kick some serious ass if I have a numerical keypad. My fingers just naturally pick out the numbers without my brain haveing to over tax itself. Well. Until I start overthinking things and then my fingers get slower so my brain can catch up.

Hey! I heard that!

Okay, I need to wind down so I can sleep better today. Yesterday was a sleepy monkey's worst nightmare. Yes. I'm the sleepy monkey. Lots of drama but I'll save that for another post. I swear though, if the phone rings today I'm ignoring it!!

And finally, some cute pics of a wonderfully well behaved puppy named Sunny. (My Godkids new puppy and the great news is Josh isn't even remotely afraid of dogs - still will kiss them right on the mouth. Hmmm, wonder if I can find that picture for ya)

Yep, this is Joshua kissing his puppy square on the mouth. The breeder laughed and said, 'I think you found your puppy.' That's my other guy Zachary in the background (he's eleven and his voice is changing and I've noticed he is losing his baby fat - makes me want to cry to see my first baby growing up!)

Awww, I helped create a rule that if the puppy was on his bed the kids couldn't touch him. That way he would know it's a safe place. Lookit Sunny keeping an eagle eye on his new playmate. I almost wanted to say, 'okay, go ahead and play with him' but apparently it's a rule they have kept up with and now the puppy will take everything you give him to his bed. I saw him drag a blanket off the couch and onto his bed.

Okay, I really have to go but I have to post this on video. It's the song that plays in my head every time I think of the puppy.

What great pictures, and that puppy is too cute for words. I knew you'd be great at that job. You are such a hard worker. Hope you get some vacation time with Bob. You deserve it.

Oh yes I squeed! LOL

It's funny, because about 3 weeks ago, I got it into my head I want a golden retriever. Everyone is on board except my parents. LOL No worries though, I know I can't, but I still want.
