Am I ready?

Have you had many moments lately in which you feel your age or older? I sure have, and Google+ has just given me another lovely "I'm old" moment. I figured I would check it out. I mean, I need all the procrastination tools I can get my hands on, right? So, I go and sign up, see that one other friend of mine has sent me an invite, and woohoo... I'm up and running. 

Here's my take on it thus far:
1. It's boring. Perhaps because I only have one friend, thus no exciting status updates to read. 
2. I don't have the app for it on my phone yet. Is there an app for it?
3. I can't figure out how to get to my blog from my google page anymore. I can't find the settings. 

So, I'm either getting old, or it's ignorance. I really hope it's not ignorance.

Things around here have been typically nuts.

We had a major scare a few nights ago with my baby Tallulah. She was very sick to her stomach, wouldn't drink water, and as a result ended up in the animal ER dehydrated. They kept her overnight, which was very traumatic for me. I know she's just a dog to most people, but she's my little baby. She was able to come home the next day, and seems to be recovering nicely!

Her recovery has been so nice that the barking has resumed. All three dogs are terrible, continuous barkers. It had gotten to the point of making us crazy. So crazy in fact, that I went shopping for a device to make them stop. I found it! What I found was a device that looks like a little birdhouse. It puts out a terrible sound (I assume it's terrible judging from their reactions) only they can hear, anytime they bark. The only downside to it is that they all suffer when one of them barks, but luckily they are all fast learners!

I'm proud to say I have finally gotten my technical writing done for the website. The only thing lacking is the "About Me" section. I am having a very hard time writing that out. I have to make myself sound wonderful, and brilliant, and radiant, blah, blah, blah... I can't write about myself like this. At least the services are written out! The wife will be proud when she adds them on the site tomorrow!

We may be considering a small road trip. Apparently the wife and I have both been feeling a bit restless lately, so we're going to try to squeeze something in. Between my volunteer time at the church, and the time the kids return from their dad's house, there should be a small window. Wish us luck... we love where we live, but with all of the craziness (knock on wood, but I think things are finally settling down), we need a peaceful getaway. I'm thinking a balcony with a beach, waves (lots of them), and a fresh, ocean smelling breeze... morning coffee and a book, afternoon walks, and evening star gazing. Oh wow, I AM getting old!

Okay... off to finish watching my Monk marathon! They just discovered a new bride is actually a "Black Widow!!" Exciting stuff!

I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday!

Tallulah loves the grass!!

You're not old or ignorant, just human ;)

I just don't understand google+ period. How many "social networks" do we need to keep up with people!?
I honestly miss getting texts or calls (yeah, still stuck WAY back there)just to say "Hey, how's the wife and kids?"
I'm sorry to hear about Tallulah, its nice that she recovered so quickly! I love how much you love your 'baby'!!! Makes me miss having one! :)
