(I had to make it great big so you could read it)

This is my horoscope from this month's Family Fun magazine (I think?).  Once in a while they really hit the nail on the head, and this is one of them - so I saved it :)  Except so far I have neglected to make health and fitness a priority - much as I keep telling myself I need to!  Instead of working out first thing as I often promise myself I will do, my To Dos have been so big lately I jump right into the ones with the biggest priority each day and skip the workout completely.  Bad habit.  Gonna change it this week (truly - someone hold me to that!)  But the high levels of work and the stress - yup that's my month.  I'm trying not to complain because really it means I have a very full life and a successful business (which I still insist on thinking of as a hobby lol) but I do wish I could figure out how to slow things down just a little bit.
This month included the end of the Girl Scout cookie sales for the year (phew!), a new personal high for drying racks finished and sent out in one week, and on St Patrick's Day...
a new puppy!  We've been promising Miss Kate for years that we would get a puppy when she was 10 years old.  Since she turned 9 in October it has hit us that 10 quickly approaching so we seriously started talking about the prospect a few months ago and decided Spring might be a better option for a new puppy than fall, what with the prospect of puppy potty training and all.  And once we finally started looking into actual options online it went pretty quickly.  Very quickly actually.  As in telling the kids we were thinking about it, to having a brand new puppy by 1:00 that afternoon :)  Eeek!  I'm still asking myself if we truly knew what we were getting into.  A new puppy is almost as labor intensive as a newborn, including waking up many many times in the middle of the night and constant monitoring.  And just when I was starting to feel the freedom of having both kids in school *sigh*  But she's here to stay, hard or not - because truly how could you not be glad to see faces like this on your kids every day?
Oh and in case you were wondering.  She's 7 weeks old (well I guess almost 8 weeks now).  A golden retriever.  And her name is Bambi.

Ha! Ha! Fun for you. I don't relish those nights of puppy potty training at all. I would hold you to the exercise, but alas, it is too hard to monitor cross country! I am curious about my horoscope. You CUT it off!! How dare you (lol). You're wonderful. Glad everything is well.
