I've Been A Bad, Bad, Bad Blogger!

And for that, I truly apologize!  I'm surprised I even have any followers left!

I have an exam this week and three next week, none of which I am even remotely prepared for.  On top of that, I have two papers to work on - one of which will be very time consuming and require lots of research. 

As a result, I need to take a short bloggy break.  There just aren't enough hours in the day, unfortunately! 

I'll be back soon with new pix of the boys.

Half Full Friday!

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009.  We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us.  So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.  The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.  They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.  I'm determined to find something good in each day.  Are you?

For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.  Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list!  (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list.  Thanks!)
~I'm happy because...
The weird rash on my chin is slowly going away!

My dripping faucet seems to have magically fixed itself!  

The weather this weekend is supposed to be beautiful!  Not that I'll get to enjoy much of it; I'll have tons of homework to catch up on.

Chico's toenails are all trimmed!  It astounds me that one tiny, 5 lb dog can put up such a strong fight whenever I try to clip them down!

I got to spend my entire shift at work on Wednesday and about 2 hours yesterday at the front desk!  This is the coveted spot and I almost never get to sit there!

I found out I got an A+ on an exam I thought that I had flunked!  Maybe this semester isn't so bad after all!
My pc still doesn't seem to recognize that my camera has pictures on it.  The pc is pretty worthless these days, I mostly just use it to print stuff now.  I need to upload the program onto my laptop and start storing pix there.  

I took some pix of the chi's hanging out in the house over spring break and want to get a few of them outside if I can find the time this weekend.  But if I don't get to, I promise to post some of the ones I do have next week.  Just to show you they're still alive and well.  Plus, it's been awhile and you've probably forgotten what they look like!  
No, these aren't my chi's.
So I kind of want to do another giveaway.  But what should I give away?  The first time I held one, it was for a choice of dog toys or a Starbucks card.  Should I do the same thing again this time or something different?  

Next month, I'll make an announcement about my annual Doggone Dog Swap.  It's hard to believe it's already that time again.  

I hope everyone who celebrates it has a Happy Easter!

I'm Not Worthy!

So waaaaaaaaaaay back in February, Martine from I need a Sugar fix gave me an award!  How cool is that?

The rules call for me to list seven things about myself that you may not know.  Ummmmmm, that's really hard!  But here goes:
1.  I like to think of myself as a girly girl.  Despite this, I cannot wear high heels.  I love them and even own several pairs, but I've yet to learn to walk properly in them.

2.  I've mentioned before that I'm into recycling now.  I just got into it this semester.  It occurred to me yesterday as I was washing dishes that the reason I've become obsessed with it is that this semester has been difficult in so many ways.  I think because that it's been a crazy roller coaster that I can't control, I'm focusing on one thing in my life that I can!

3.  I want to eat healthier and for the most part, I buy mostly healthy foods.  I feel so much better when I eat foods that are good for me.  And yet, I have absolutely no self-control when I see junk food.  It calls my name and I *have* to eat it!

4.  I love rainbows!  They make me smile.  :)

5.  I want to own a bulldog some day.

6.  I love my little house!  But sometimes I wish I rented instead so someone else could take care of all the things I don't know how to and am not very good at.

7.  It's been almost a year since my dad died and I still think of him every single day.  I wish I would have appreciated him more when he was alive.

Thank you, Martine!  That was actually kind of fun and maybe not quite as hard as I thought it would be once I got started.

I'm supposed to pass this award on.  Instead of passing it along to specific blogs and then feeling bad when they don't accept them, I'm just gonna say that if you want it, then by all means, please feel free to grab it.  I'd love to learn new things about all of you.
