by popular demand...

I know, i know...i've been slackin. But I have good reasons. Yesterday wrapped the two most stressful weeks thus far of my life.

We closed on our house (YAY) on sept 8 and immediately began moving things in. On sept 11, movers came to the apartment and got all the rest of the stuff. On the 12th, Robbie's parents came for the weekend. I was slated to start my new job on the 18th ( following Thursday).

Tuesday night the 16th I got a call from my parents. My grandmother had fallen. It wasn't looking good. I flew up to Arlington on the 17th and postponed starting work. My dear, sweet grandmother, who celebrated her 90th Birthday on Sept 14, passed away this past Sunday, the 21st. I was in Arlington until this past Wednesday (24th).

We finally got back home and things were just a mess. Luckily, we were almost done unpacking but the house is still not where I want it.

THEN (oh yes, there's more), yesterday Robbie had surgery to repair torn cartilege in his shoulder. He is basically out of commission for 4 weeks. He has to remain in a sling 24/7, so all my hopes of getting all of the furniture where I want it are going to be put on hold for awhile. Although, we've had plenty of offers for help, so we'll get it worked out.

Oh, and I start my job on Monday.

Sorry for the no pictures, I will put some up soon I promise. I'm in survival mode for now.

2 years

Two years ago today, I wore this:

So we could do this:

Then we were married, yay!

Oh the cake was so good. Wish we had some of that right now....

Then, of course, we drank!

Happy Anniversary to the best husband I ever had!

slippin n slidin

So it's been a million years and for that...i apologize. I wish i could say I've been too busy working at my new job to update, but that's a lie. I am still on the hunt, but have a (hopefully) promising interview on Thursday.

Other than that, I've been doing this (note the puppers in the background)

And visiting here

House will be done in September. Can. Not. Wait.

a dog's life

this is not a happy face. my baby has a bad ear infection and getting the stupid cream in her ear is somewhat of a battle. if she could talk at this moment i think she'd say 'screw you'

my OWN pictures, thankyouverymuch

We flew into Reno and had a couple (4) hours to kill.

Our first full day there on our hike.

We went up to Squaw Valley. The olympics were held here in 1968. Pretty amazing.

From the top of the mountain. Pretty great, huh?

That is the death trap that we rode to get to the top of the mountain. Okay, it wasn't that bad. But it wasn't that great either.

We hiked up to take in this view on the second day.

Roberto and I on hydro bikes. That was a blast.

Here we are up at squaw valley. Look at the snow!
