Hi! Remember me?

I can't believe it's been over a year since my last post on here. I love writing about random things and I think the whole working and being a mom to three kids has kind of taken over my life. Plus there is that little thing called Facebook that takes up what down time I get, which is decreasing as the kids get older. But I really must get back on here. I think it's good therapy to be able to ramble on about whatever is bugging me lately. Speaking of bugs.......we have been infested with them. Okay okay that sounds far worse than it is, but that's what it feels like. You see back in March we adopted a beautiful puppy which we named Samoa, Sammie for short. And since she isn't in the habit of letting us know when she needs to go out we have just left the back door open for her to go in and out as needed. It was okay when the weather wasn't so warm, but now that it is the middle of summer the flies are horrid! We keep talking about getting a doggy door but that's all it's been so far, talk. Sure we look on craigslist...... Sure we check out the prices online.....and gag at how much they want.... Sure we say we'll make it a priority with the next paycheck, but it hasn't happened yet. So until then we have a fly strip by the back door (gross I know) and one in the laundry room (which doesn't attract as many flies as you'd think) and at least a few in the garage (cat litter boxes are a major attraction for flies). Do I worry about unexpected guests showing up and seeing these disgusting things? You bet your life I do, but I worry more about a fly landing on my food! So keep your fingers crossed for two things to happen..... One for me to come back and write some more...... And two for me to convince the hubby that a doggy door is at the top of the priority list!!!!
