Eh

I know I haven't blogged in forever. I just don't have much to say.

That's not true. I have tons to say. I mean, any of you who actually know me know that I have an opinion on absolutely everything. But I don't feel like I can/want to blog about it.

I guess I just feel like my blog reflects my life. It's a little stagnant. I mean, I don't have a whole lot going on. That's not to say I'm not happy. I'm very happy. I have an amazing husband who I adore, some pretty cute dogs, great friends, a job I enjoy, etc. But I still feel stagnant. I think it's because I haven't found much to do after college. In college I was incredibly involved. I was always on the go, attending meetings, etc. But now, I don't have any of that. I don't feel like I'm being productive with my life right now. I'm working on changing that, but I guess that's why I haven't blogged much.

It also kind of feels like everything is in limbo for me in some way. Derek and I won't be in LG forever. We're going to move in the next few years. Then we have a fresh start. But we'll also be here for 2 more years or so. Part of me feels like I'm just waiting to move to do something. Even though that's really ridiculous because I have at least 2 entire years to get involved with things, to do things. In some ways I even still feel stuck in that "not in college but not entirely an adult yet" phase. I know I am an adult, I have a spouse and bills and responsibilities and all of that, but it still feels a little weird.

I know that's a lot of rambling, but I figured I'd give you a reason why I haven't blogged in so long. I'll work on it. :)

My poor baby...

My sweet, precious little dog Barkley
is not feeling well at all. He doesn't want to get up and move, he only wants to eat when I bribe him with really delicious table scraps, he yelps if he ever jumps down from the couch/bed (which he refuses to even do anymore), he yelps when I pick him up, he's lethargic and oh so pitiful. I'm taking him to the vet this afternoon and hopefully it won't be anything serious. I've done a full body check and have absolutely no idea what could be hurting him. I want my little cuddle bug back!

Update: He has a sprained back, he had to get a shot and he'll have to take some medicine and he's forbidden from jumping up on things or down from things for about 3 weeks. I did learn that my precious little baby is 8 lbs (um... that's chihuahua for "fat"), does NOT like getting his temperature taken (for the record I wouldn't like that either) and is really scared of big dogs that bark at him. But he's also a great little patient.

Good post

I read a blog called Stuff Christians Like which usually is really funny. It's intentionally a play off of Stuff White People Like. Both of these websites are hilarious! When someone takes the time to point out some of the ridiculous things that we do, it really makes you stop and laugh at yourself. To really get a good example of the hilarity you should probably check out this post:
http://stufffchristianslike.blogspot.com/2009/03/favorite-post-1-understanding-how.html

However, today he wrote about something a little more serious. I'd summarize, but it's well written and he says it better than I can so go check it out: http://stufffchristianslike.blogspot.com/2009/04/512-thinking-youre-naked.html

It's beautiful and heart-warming and good. You are not naked.
