Okay... I'm going to do it...

I have had long hair since Justin and I were married nearly five years ago. Before that, I had super short hair. I know that I swore that I would never chop my hair so short that I couldn't put it in a pony tail, but I've changed my mind. I'm going to chop it today... and I'm SO EXCITED! Anyway, for all of you who will miss my glorious, long tresses, I'm posting one last picture of them here.


Chris' New Do

Chris wanted to cut his hair because it "wasn't curling right." So, I grabbed my clippers and set to work. He wanted to rock a hawk for a few minutes before cutting all the hair off, so here is a close up of his "mohawk." Thank goodness for Elmer's glue...


New Blog Background

I created this new background using my Adobe Photoshop and some tips from a website I found through my sister-in-law's (Jody's) blog page. Sorry if you can't see the whole image. For those of you that will ask, yes, that is Campbell of Argyle plaid. A picture of Justin and I are on the left and just Justin is on the right. It was amazingly simple. Here's the link if you want to do it yourself.

Poor Puppy

On Friday, we had to take our puppy into the vet. I hate doing that because vets are so expensive, but our little puppy was in a lot of pain. Anyway, we found out that because her mother didn't nurse her long enough, her little bones were deformed and her immune system wasn't up to snuff. In fact, because of a fall, her abdomen was full of fluid and her kidneys were inflamed. Not to mention her ribs were flared and didn't connect to her sternum. The doctor gave her a 10% chance of living if we spent at least $2000 dollars and put her immediately through surgery. Even with all that, she would probably get sick again and it would probably be worse. So with that information, we decided to have Lily put down. I have decided that we are never, ever, ever getting another dog. It hurts Justin too much when they die.
