Poor Pasha

My beautiful wonderdog, Pasha, went to the vet today to have them look at her paw. She has been limping around for a day or two, and we wanted to have it looked at. This also gave us a chance to check out the local vet that I've heard so much about. His name is Dr. Graf, and everything I've heard has been awesome. In this case, everything was true. He did an amazing job of explaining to me what was wrong and some of the different options. Pasha has a torn ACL in her rear left leg. :( All he could do for her right now is give us some pain meds and refer us to a doggie orthopedic surgeon. So on Wednesday we have an appointment with them to see if they can do anything for the pup. In the meantime, here are some pics of our former pound pup:

Send well wishes her way, will ya?

I'm a horrible person and have already skipped a day. So much for 30 consecutive days of updates, huh? But I had a very, very good reason for it. That reason?

Picture from engadget.

Yes, I got a Droid. So did hubby. We've been playing with them since we first laid our hands on these magical phones at the Verizon store. Man, Blackberry has nothing on the Droid! It even lets me surf Ravelry, reply to individual forum posts, and update my projects page! I haven't tried uploading any pics yet, but I'm optimistic!

What are you super excited about today?

Ooooh, pretty!

Look who has a new blog layout! It's not exactly what I had in mind, but it's way better than what was here before. What do you guys think? So, I made it to Day #2 of my 30-day goal. I'm pretty impressed. :) Yesterday I mentioned the fact that we recently bought a house here in Colorado and promised a few pictures. Check out what we have done to the kitchen. This is what we started with when we bought it:

Yeah, pretty crazy, huh? We bought a foreclosure, and the previous owners had totally stripped the kitchen. They took the cabinets, appliances, sink, light fixtures...everything. That's okay though, because I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted in my head and that was just less demolition for us to do! So, after painting the walls and buying new, well everything, this is what we have ended up with:

We still have some things to do in there, but for the most part it is done. I love everything about it! Our next big project will be the lawn. We have next to no grass, which really sucks...especially for the kids. Okay, especially for me, because I have to do dusty laundry every day!

So, what projects do you have planned?

On being a slacker and having goals.

Yes, yes, I have been the ultimate slacker. Here it is, 2010, and I haven't even posted a single thing to my blog. Well, that's about to change. For the next 30 days, I am going to post something every day. I've been thinking a lot lately about how much of a procrastinator I am. For example, my super-wonderful-awesomely-amazing husband's blanket:


According to Ravelry, I started it all the way back in October of 2008. It was supposed to be a present for our 5th wedding anniversary. As much as I love this man, this blanket is just not one of my favorites. I love the pattern, love doing cables...but each row takes me 15-30 minutes to do. Now, if I just sat down and did 1 inch every day, I could be done with the darn thing in a little over a month. But no, instead I look at it while I'm knitting him a hat, or think of it while I'm knitting a new pair of socks for one of the girls. Well, last night I finally pulled it out and worked on it. The smile he had on his face was enough to make me want to work on that blanket 24 hours a day to get it finished! So, guess what I'm going to be doing today? LOL You guessed it!

Oh, and guess what? WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! Yup, you heard me. Maybe if you're lucky, I'll show you a few pics of the remodeling we've done so far and share some of my ideas for it tomorrow. Don't forget to thank a vet!
