Friday's Blessings

It's Friday again and I'm back on track. I'll be honest this was NOT a good week for me at all really. There were very few good things that happened to me to be honest. Work has been well....NOT so good. I guess the only good part about work right now is that I have a job. So let's just say I have a new attitude towards most of my job duties and my supervisors...Unfortuanately, it's not all good attitude....Not gonna lie.

We are hopefully going to be adopting a second dog into our family. I did a little post about 3 of our 4 candidates....The 4th one just got added to the list, I'll post a little bit about her at the bottom of this post. So we're super excited here at my house. I can hardly wait to see who we come home with! I deleted the original poll that I had up with our first 3 candidates on it so that I could add our 4th candidate to the poll, so feel free to re-vote.

The weather has been phenominal! I was actually running around in SHORTS yesterday! I think that spring may have finally arrived in Wisconsin....Even if just temporarily. It's supposed to be 70 degree's here today!

I put out a request for guest bloggers yesterday for Saturdays and possibly Sundays as well...Tomorrow we will have AmyB from Our Daily Blessing....Life. Amy's blog is AWESOME....Her son Phillip has been through a LOT in his life and Amy herself has been dealing with NON Hodgkin's stage 2 cancer. I hope that you will go and check out her blog. Amy and Phillip are real inspirations. If you would like to be a guest blogger please drop me an e-mail at and I'll add you to my schedule.

Now let's move on to our 4th candidate that could potentially be a new member of our family....This is Ari.

Ari is a almost 6 year old Mountain Cur/Hound mix. Here is what the shelter has to say about Ms. Ari:

ARI has a sweet disposition and loves attention. She loves going for walks, but does pull some, especially if she sees a rabbit because of her breed. She loves to ride in cars and will ride up front like a queen. She will make a great couch potato if allowed. Ari gets along with most calmer or smaller dogs, is ok with cats but may chase them and is excellent with children.

Now don't forget to cast your vote in the poll in my sidebar.


  1. Sorry to hear you're having a rough time at work. Maybe a new dog will take your mind off of it? (I'm partial to Flick! He's cute!)

  2. Oh I am so sorry that you've had a bad week at work!! That is one of the most frustrating things to go... I hope your weekend is better..

  3. Ari sounds like a gem. Hang in there, next week is bound to be better.

  4. Sorry to hear about your week. Ari sure is a cutie! So hard to pick just one. I'm torn between Ari and Spooky.

  5. ARI is so cute! I think it is wonderful that you are adopting a dog. Good luck with whichever one you chose. They will be a lucky dog. Sorry to hear you have had a bad week, I hope you have a good weekend!

  6. I could barely pick out my own adopted dogs among all those at the shelter they were in so you're on your own here, kiddo.

    The Texas Woman

  7. Oh my gosh! What a doll! I want another dog!

    I voted for "Flick" only because our last baby (that we miscarried) was nicknamed Flicka. :(

    Good luck on your decision! I would take them all!

    And I know what you mean about complaining about work. I used to complain about my job non-stop and then the economy drop and now I'm just thankful to have a job!

  8. I hear ya about the work thing my friend. The other week when everything went down, do you know what made me feel a little better? Secondhand Lions. I thought of you the whole time!

  9. Such a beautiful dog. Amy and her family our in my prayers and hope easy days are around the corner real soon!

  10. So many good dogs to choose from! I think your idea of letting your current dog make the final pick is an excellent one.

    Sorry about work. It's good to have a job. I hope that at some point (sooner than later) you can either enjoy the job you have or find a job you enjoy.

    The weather is GREAT!!! At least that is something to be happy about!

  11. oh its a tough one, im partial to lab mixes, only because that is what i have.


Talk to me goose....
