to add or not to add?

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

I am on a roll in 2014. Three posts in less than two weeks? Let's not judge that one of the posts really should have landed in 2013. Focus on the positive.

We spent the majority of the past week debating on whether or not we should add another member to our family. That member being covered with fur and probably causing me a lot of distress. Every since the Chip Incident of 2013, Adam is set on getting a playmate for Ruthie. Don't get me wrong, I would love a new pup - but someone has to make sure we don't drive our family into debt from someone's impulsiveness. Also, I don't know if Ruthie would really like a friend (she loses her mind around other dogs - best moments of her life, according to her), or if she's perfectly content being the only child (no more cuddles on the couch if we add another one). Hey, if this is the most serious decision I have to make all year, I'm ok with it.

Sigh. Whatever happens, at least I held off until 2014! (Check out my 2013 resolutions here. Same reasons, different year.) And yes, I still haven't made up my resolutions for 2014. Other than I know it will include less technology. My addiction to Spider Solitaire on my phone has gotten out of control.

Moving on to our always exciting-crazy-overwhelming-fun life. We celebrated Alysa's birthday at our house and Mulligan's (ok, we have got to find a new hangout) on Saturday night with some of our oldest friends. We kicked the night off with some Hot n Ready's and the fire pit. (It wasn't quite as cold as it is today...7 degrees when I woke up this morning!)


Eventually, we made our way to Mulligan's.


The perks of frequenting the neighborhood dive bar? They let us bring Ruthie now!

Those were really our only plans for the weekend, so we spent the rest of the time taking down Christmas decorations and... doing laundry in our own house! We finally got a new washing machine. I'm not kidding, I think our old one broke in August. Embarrassing. Regardless, here she is!


And that is my, always riveting, post.
