I agree

JJ and I have also discussed our need to be healthier. So here is a picture of us, hopefully we can start looking better!

Reggie's Family Reunion

Hello family! So the breeders that we bought Reggie from told JJ when he got him that they would love to see how their puppy grew up, so we took him over there today and boy were they thrilled! I got to see Reggie's parents and the breeders could not believe how big and beautiful Reggie is. They called him picture perfect and the guy looked so happy I thought he was going to burst.

New blog

I really like the backgrounds Monica uses, so hopefully this is one she hasn't used yet and hopefully she doesn't mind I went to the same site. Also hopefully the text on the lime green isn't completely abrasive to read. Let me know. I'll change it at some point anyway.

So.... it isn't my fault! I was all set to have Reggie fixed tomorrow, but the vet office called me and my vet is sick so we had to postpone. Sigh. I had gotten myself all geared up and ready, and it needs to be done. But it isn't postponed for long, we are trying for next Thursday. So his Reggi-balls will be no more soon.

Spring Break is almost finished. It does mean we are halfway through the semester. Then it will be summer and Mandy's wedding will be here. God knows I have to lose some weight before then or I won't fit in my dress, I have reached an all-time weight high and I feel pretty gross.

Let's see.... I guess that is about it. I have today off work, so I am going to do homework, clean and walk the yellow dog. Hope you all are doing well.

Blog time

Hello family! Well, it is Spring Break. I am celebrating the first couple days of it by not doing any homework. Then I am going to spend the rest of it doing homework. But if I get done what I hope to it will make the last half of the semester much easier. My computer crashed right before a test last week, so I did not get to look at my notes one last time like I always do. It is frustrating because not only did I not get to look at the notes, but my OCD kicked in because, like I said, I ALWAYS do that. So hopefully I did alright. I know I didn't fail or anything like that, but I think I would have done better had I been able to fulfill my ritual note-check. Oh well. The computer is back up and running at least, thank God for Jimmy.

Reggie is now 10 months old and as much as we feel bad getting him fixed, it has to be done. We have already waited too long. So his appointment is Friday. Poor yellow dog. He is 81 pounds now and if he goes after a female I will not be able to stop him. He is too big and strong. And yellow.

Lilly is doing well. Her new favorite movies are "Snow Buddies" and "Space Buddies," and if you don not know what those are, just feel lucky. At least they aren't musicals. They are about Golden Retriever puppies that have adventures, which sounds cute and all, but Disney insisted on having one of the puppies, B-Dawg (sigh), sound all gangsta and it is just obnoxious. He is a puppy. It doesn't make sense. Really. Doesn't make sense. Yeah.

Well, I am getting an error message so this may not even publish. So, let's try!

I know it has been too long....

Hi family, sorry it has been so long since I have blogged. It is a busy time. Homework has hit like a tidal wave and I am trying to learn to surf it. I was reading Mary's blog, and mentioned that 2010 was going to be a big year for us, she will be done in March and I will be done in May. Although somehow she gets a split masters in less time that I get one. But Chico State will not let us vary from their program regiment and time unless you want to take longer than four semesters. At least by this summer I will be half done and probably starting to work on a thesis. We have a choice between taking comprehensive exams, doing a thesis project or writing a thesis in order to graduate. The nice thing about doing a thesis is that you have to defend it and have it done early, so while everyone is freaking out about their upcoming comp tests, you are essentially done. Also, your thesis is a bound book that not only you get a copy of, but the library has available to check out. It is a really neat way to be published. I need to start on it soon because apparently it takes almost a year to write one. I have a few vague topic ideas. One is to examine the role of internet communication on society, another is to examine the anonymous communication on the internet and how it affects how people behave, another is to do a historical thesis, for instance the types of communication used in peace talks in some past conflict and why is was effective or ineffective. My other idea to go critical theory, and do a feminist rhetorical thesis on Disney and how they affect gender roles in young girls. So I am pretty much all over the map with this. Oh well, I have a little while to decide, but I'd love anyone's input because this will be a huge project and it has to be something I can keep going on and not get so totally burned out that I can't finish it!
