Sunday Night

Earlier today I read an article on Thought Catalog about Sundays, called "What Sunday Is For." 
(Thanks Kevin Wang @Mister_Wang on Twitter for bringing it to my attention.)

Basically, the author argues that we should have more relaxation on Sundays, a notion with which I wholeheartedly agree. In the past, my Sundays have been packed with chores. I usually spend all day doing the things I don't want to do, until suddenly it's Sunday night and I realize that all I wanted to do was watch television with my dog on my lap.

So for all my future Sundays, here are all the random, unproductive things that I hope to do:

Paint my nails with glitter
Put ribbons in Alice's hair
Lie down and just think
Watch two or more movies in a day
Bake (and eat) Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies

Hello Again

As I try to sit down and write my first blog post of 2012, I can't help but be a little distracted. You see, in the months that I have been off-line from this blog, I have been raising my first puppy. Her name is Alice, and, as you can see, she is an absolute sweetheart. But she does have a devilish way about her. She's running around the room, chasing my sock. Yes, my sock. I have no idea why she likes my sock more than the stuffed squeaking bear toy I got her. Or her pink bouncy ball... or her tennis ball. Or anything else really.

Though my life has certainly been busy from multiple walks a day, potty-times, mealtimes, and random cuddles, it has really been a great experience. Alice and I are currently going to doggy training classes in Brookline, MA. I went to the first session last week, which was mostly an introductory lesson. However, tomorrow will be our first time together with our newly assigned class. I can't help but admit it... I'm very excited. I, like Alice, have much to learn about dog training.
