And there is more. You may have been embarrassed for me with my pathetic little 9 sitting over there, showing the world that I have not run in over a week. It was a little embarrassing, I'll admit. Although, I have no idea how I would've gotten to a gym seeing as how I have been lucky to get homeschool finished before five and dinner on the table before nine any day this week! But I knew something was on its way that would make it easy to catch up to my goal. What could it be? I'll tell you. My mom's treadmill! She has offered it to me several times over the past few years and I never have been able to figure out a way to acquire it. That is definitely a silver lining in this whole thing, a way to pick up the treadmill! A small silver lining, but I'll take it.
And there's more. "More?" you ask? Why yes, there's more. A puppy. A puppy?! Yep, that's what I said. Years ago we promised the children a puppy "after Daddy graduates." Little did we know, Daddy would graduate and be unemployed for eight months and wind up a janitor. But anyway, for obvious reasons, we haven't rushed out and found us a puppy. However, when George's good friend Matt had two free, inoculated, six week old lab puppies fall into his lap, we really couldn't think of a reason to say no. They tried to convince us to take both, but we decided that would just be too much. We may be crazy, but I'm not sure how much the puppy has to do with that. Anyway, I am not sure which puppy is ours in this picture, but maybe once I get to know her, I'll be able to tell. She's a little girl, and we have no idea what to name her. Any ideas? Since I'm making boscotti anyway, how about biscotti to whoever picks a name we like? Sky's the limit!
