Adding to the family (it is not what you think)

No, I am NOT pregnant but our lovely family just got bigger with the addition of two yellow labs. Yes, you read that right, TWO!! I feel the same way about dogs as I do kids, if you are going to have one then you need to have two. They are both males and they are 10 weeks old. Their names are Tug and Newt. Newt came from a suggestion from J's brother, Newt is a character in one of our favorite books/movies, Lonesome Dove. As for Tug, well, we couldn't think of a name for the bigger puppy and all of the sudden Chloe says "what about Tug?" and J and I looked at each other and said "Tug!, We love it". Tug it is. I have no idea where she came up with that word, probably from school I am sure.

So I now have one VERY HAPPY HUSBAND and daughters. I realized I would not make it through my married life without having a dog. So I decided to go with my new years resolution of relaxing more and truly not sweating the small stuff so I changed my attitude and now I am proud to be the owner of 2 lovely dogs that my family will enjoy.

Aww they are adorable!!! I love puppies, always so cute and fun! If only they would stay that way! HA

Yes I mentioned walking the marathon to the Dr and he said we will see how well my progress is in 3 weeks when I go back for a check up. I guess he will give me the final say so then. I sure hope he allows it. I'm going stir crazy not running or doing any cardio.
