Furry Friends

I want a dog. A big, snuggly, dog. I've got my heart set on a Golden Retreiver, but we are looking for a dog that is between 1 and 2 years old. Its hard to find a Golden that age. I've checked Shelters, and rescue places. All of the Golden Retreiver Rescue sites require you to have a fence if you want to adopt a dog. We live in an apartment and dont have a fence...very frustrating. I have taken to stalking the pet section on craigslist as well... as a matter of fact, Im going to do that now.

Today was exhausting... Not a terrible day, but just...alot. 13 Toddlers all day long can definitly wear you out. It really got me thinking about my choices for career path. I love teaching little kids. I'd really love to be in the public schools, though, maybe 5th or 6th grade. The thoughts only got deeper though, and I realized that there are alot of things I'd like to do.

Some jobs I think would be really awesome (if I were qualified for them):

1. Photographer
2. Physical Trainer
3. Writer
4. jewelry designer
5. Musician

My conclusion is that in my perfect world I would be independently wealthy so that I'd have the time and resources to try my hand in these areas.

Just a quick one tonight. Busy with lesson plans and toddler crafts!

The reason I started this blog is that I saw a friend had started one as her New Years Resolution. I thought, well I could do that. Two years ago my Resolution was to quit smoking. So far, so good. If I can stick with not smoking, I can certainly stick with blog writing...I hope.

Making Friends

So, Eric and I moved here (to Colorado) in August. I am a pretty friendly person, so I thought I would have no problem making friends...there is only one problem. I find that I compare everyone to my friends back home. The truth is, I LOVE Colorado, but I dont want new friends...I want MY friends. I love the friends I already have. So, I am finding it is much harder to meet people than I had anticipated. I know I need to meet people but I just want my friends from NY to be here.

Anyway, I had a work party today and there is a girl I work with who just got married in July, and moved from California. She said we should get together (us and our husbands), b/c they dont know many people here either.

I know it is a good idea, and I am excited about finding a "couple" to spend time with. I just hope that I am not constantly thinking, "she is not as funny as Amber", or "we dont click like Michelle and I", or "He isnt as witty as Dan"... I'll keep you posted


I am so invigorated and grateful for the happiness I have found in life. I wonder if everyone feels this way at times, or if I am one of the lucky ones. I found the one thing that can keep you going no matter what; LOVE. I am so in love with my husband, and so thankful to have him in my life, and happy to do anything as long as its together. I find it hard to believe, with a divorce rate as high as ours, that everyone feels this way about their significant other. I could be wrong, but for now I like thinking I'm lucky.
