Letters To Murphy and Others

Dear Summer- I think I'm loving you more than winter. Do not tell it because I've always said winter is my favorite, but you may be changing my mind this summer. There's just something about not working and still getting paid that I can't resist.

Dear Murphy- The shelter said you were going to be about 40 lbs. Everywhere I go people comment on how big you're going to be. We will find you a house with a big yard soon I promise. Thank you for sleeping all through the night and never making a mess in your kennel. I swear you're almost house trained and it's only been a few days. You never jump and never lick and that makes you the best dog ever. Please hide all Mark's shoes in funny places while he is gone.

Dear Future- I'm really stressed about what we're supposed to do and where we're supposed to go in the future. Please help us find a good house in the right place someday, preferably with jobs we still love.

Dear Stuffed Jalapenos: Eating you was like eating hot lava straight from a volcano. Next time I will definitely wear gloves. Jalapeno finger in my eye at midnight is no fun at all.

Dear Anonymous Commenters- Thank you for taking the time to always read my blog. I do not mind if your views are different than mine. If you would like to leave a comment telling me so, please feel free. There is no need to leave it anonymously. That's just weird. When I picture who left the phantom comment I picture a creeper in their basement evilly snickering as they go from blog to blog leaving slightly disturbing comments. Fess up or you're going to have to answer to this guy:

Murphy is so cute! I'm glad he's got a happy home now! This is the first summer I'm working full time. It sucks.

I have to say that I am greatly stressing about my future as well. I have no idea what I am supposed to do or how I am supposed to get there. And the fact that it has been about 3 years since I finished school and I still don't have anything figured out freaks me out even more.

So the rescue that we got Bruin from told us he was a Shephard and Lab mix. He is now 2 and a whopping 36 pounds. We thought we wanted a huge dog, but once we saw he was as big as he was going to get, we realized that his size ended up being the PERFECT one for living in an apartment. Someone out there knew what was best for us I guess... So whatever size Murph is, big or small, it will be the perfect once for you guys!

You guys got a puppy! Oh I'm so jealous, my in-laws just gave their puppy back because the girl wanted it back and he had too much energy. I'm so bummed, but so excited that you got one.
