Surprise ??

I'm getting a puppy.....yup, just like that.  He is in California and I am flying there on Monday and bringing him back on Thursday.
His name is ASH, Brad picked it, his registered name will be Entais Storm Winds, I picked it :)

5 weeks
My mom is angry with me for getting him, she thinks it is too soon, I have put up with smart ass comments on Facebook about how nice it must be to be able to fly all over and travel like I do to dog shows, I felt attacked and it sucked the joy out of getting this puppy , but just for a day. 
I ended up taking down every post I had put up of him on Facebook, and every picture.  I am done with the people that feel they have the right to comment on your business from the safety of their homes.  I was hurt, I am super sensitive, it matters to me what people think.

I love my dogs, fully, completely, whole hardheartedly, I would die for my dogs.  I need them in my life,  I went 2 years without a dog once, bad move on my part,  Talk about depression.  If I didn't have a dog in my life I would stay in bed all day, honest I would.

My dogs are fed before I eat, if I only had 5 dollars, I would spend it on my dogs first.  They want for nothing, I do everything to make sure they are happy.  So why then do people, including my family, feel I cant handle another dog?? In my opinion it is way harder and more costly to have an old sick dog then a young puppy.

I know it's my fault, too much personal information on Facebook being shared, but no more, I will still post, but just generic everyday meaningless stuff.  No more personal things.

I said at one time that the Collies were too hard to keep up now for me, Flatcoats were my breed for sure.  I didnt lie, they are! But, so are Collies.  I think alot of that was my depression and anxiety talking.
 
At this point in our lives Brad and I felt it was better to have a Collie then another Flatcoat,  Lync is big and strong and all muscle,  He is also pushy and strong and wants whatever Kort has.
Kort is pretty sore these days, so one pushy boy is good for now,   I will have another Flatcoat, Lyncs son I hope,  But for now the Collie is a better fit.

So stay tuned for pictures because you will only see them here for awhile, not sure I will ever post any to Facebook, we'll see :)

Not Much going On

Reverse side
Cover for Kort's crate pad
Cover for Kort's orthopedic pad
Not too much happening over here, still doing a ton of sewing, I find the minute my mind isn't occupied then my anxiety returns :(  I hate it!!!

One good thing to come out of all my sewing , I got an order for a crate pad cover!! How fun is that!  I told my friend that it wont be perfect, I am not a seamstress , not even close!, but it will be cute lol!

There are also going to be some changes around my house soon, more to come on that topic later.

That's about it, sewing and walking the dogs, my life :)

Spare Bedroom

One of the positive effects of the Ambilify is that I feel normal enough , and have energy enough, to do things I have put off for more then a year.

This morning I spent a few hours cleaning and rearranging the basement bedroom.  Brad uses the bedroom alot when he is on nights, he gets home at 8am and heads downstairs , showers and goes to bed.  It works well as I can carry on with house work or training , or sewing and not worry about waking him.  So when I did the room today I did it with him in mind, I added a few pictures of him and his dad, and just made it comfortable for a big guy to maneuver around in a small space.  I really like it and can't wait for him to see it tonight when he gets home :)

TV with VCR for watching Boxing :)
Cozy with manly bedding , lol
My Baba's dresser!, Books and videos, Brads a big reader, I think it's super cozy!
Picture of Brad's Dad when he played professional football and Brad and his Dad.

Well that was short lived! so glad I thought to take pictures, Brad hated it :(   I ended up moving everything back to the way it was before, at least it's clean I guess

Painting


I have been updating the house a bit the last little while.  We have lived here for 8 years and I haven't really done anything.  I thought when we first moved here we were going to buy our own house but that looks to be just a dream now sadly.  I guess I will update this one to make it more ours, nothing too drastic or expensive, just a bit of paint for some colour.  I also need to get our landlady to take out this rug, it is orange/brown and I HATE it!!!  I would rather have some hardwood laminate put down and then put a big area rug there.

Today I have started the one living room wall, I have the first coat done and I really like it, can't wait for it to dry to put on the second coat
