It’s goin around…

Welp I officially got “what’s going around” this week. I spent my 2 days off glued to the couch with tissues stuffed up my nose so it would stop dripping long enough for me to sleep for half a second.

And aren’t dogs supposed to have some crazy ability to know when their owners are feeling like crap, and they act sweet towards them? Well bless his little heart, Henry is apparently missing more screws in his brain then we thought. He. Drove. Me. Crazy. This. Week.

I even dragged my sick sorry butt to the park yesterday (I took the tissues out of my nose for that short time) to try and get some energy out of him so he’d let me take a nap. Welp, turns out that an hour of running around only makes him more hyper when he gets home.

Also, I’m starting to wonder if I will ever see my hardwood floor again. Every time we let the dog out brings a new layer of mud on the floor that I’ve come to accept. Since it rains every day in Portland I don’t think I have a choice but to make mud a part of our family.

That’s what’s new in MY life! Happy Halloween!
I’ll post pictures next of the incredibly beautiful fall leaves in my amazing city. I can’t wait to show them off!

Love you all! 🙂


I do declare

It’s funny how almost everyone around here who finds out  I’m from Georgia is SOOOO amazed at my lack of a southern accent. Sure, a lot of people in the south talk a little weird. It definitely doesn’t mean you should ask them to say things like “I do declare” just for laughs. Although it does make me giggle when people ask me to, I must admit.

My life is officially so dull that I have nothing to say on here anymore. I go to work. I play with the pup. I cook dinner. And then I sleep.

I will ask my readers (probably just the 2 family members who go to this page occasionally) to pray for my very sick Grandmother in the hospital right now. It may be a little cliche to ask for prayers for grandparents, but she’s been in a lot of pain for a long time and my family would appreciate it. THANKS EVERYONE!

It’s been a great Fall so far. The weather has stayed pretty sunny for the month of October, though I know that many long months of rain are ahead of us. I’m excited about my Autumn cookie cutters coming in the mail this week. Portland sure is beautiful when it’s leaves change colors.

So there it was! Possibly my last optimistic-sounding post for the year. Rain does very very bad things for my morale. I could probably use prayer for that too 🙂

Here’s so photos for your viewing pleasure of Cody life lately.

Silliest dog ever.

Me and my friend Noah at Roloff Farms

One day I’ll be brave enough to post some of the videos I take from Josh’s iphone, but they all have my voice in them and I hate hearing myself talk.

Welp, later Dudes!
