Thoughts for Thursday




1. I have been debating going back and forth between buying a domain for this little old blog of mine. After doing some research, if I want to grow and have more control this is one of two things that I could do. The other would be to switch to self hosting instead of doing Blogger, which is currently what I have. Now I am no expert in html or coding or anything like that, so this scares the sh*t out of me! A couple of months ago I had someone design this good old template of mine and dont get me wrong, I love it but there are some things that I wish I could have a little more control over or learn how to change. So long story short, I want to move forward but I hate change and I'm scared. Any advice on how either one of these things went for you, that would be great! :)

2. This weekend is the second weekend IN A ROW that we don't have much planned. On Saturday night we have friends birthday bash, but that's it! We recently found some shelving on sale at Menards for $.99 so I think we are going to get some of them and put them up in our storage room. That way we can actually start putting stuff down there where it has a specific spot instead of ALL OVER THE HOUSE. Our guest bedroom right now if FULL of my clothing (sorry Bill) so my plan is to work on all of that as well as get the other spare room ipstairs organized. I am using that as my "wardrobe" room I guess you could call it. Really its just so that I can get ready on my early mornings without disturbing Bill too much.

3. We have taken Mya to the dog park 4 times since last Friday and I think she really enjoys it. At first she was not really into it at all but now when we go, she starts whining as soon as we pull up. Now don't get me wrong, she still has her reservations on some dogs but gets along with most of them. On Tuesday night I took her since I knew that it was going to be near 100* this week (with the heat index) and she lasted for about 30 minutes. After a couple of bigger dogs ( a doberman and two rottweilers) showed up, she kinda just quit playing with other dogs and sat under my feet. Which is a good sign since when we first got her, she would just attack other dogs. She also looks to me for some reassurance if she doesn't really know what to do. For example, there was a 9 week old English Bulldog in the big dog area and she wasn't really sure if she could play with him or not. She quick looked at me and waited for me to say it was okay. Then we went ahead and started to gently play with him. So sweet.

4. Kind of a side part to #4, Mya has a sister that was also adopted by someone here in the cities. We have talked a few times on Facebook and this week we decided that we are going to meet up and have them play! We haven't established a day or time yet but I am really looking forward to seeing her and seeing if they remember each other. It will also be nice to talk with the owner to see if they are progressing the same way. If you are new and want to know more about Mya's past, check out the blog post I did here!
