I have lied to you, my readers.

There may be only a very small number of you now that I've pretty much abandoned this blog over time, but I know there are still a couple.  And I've lied to you.

In my earliest posts this month, I lied by omission.

In this post, I flat out lied when I said there's not much to say.

Cause there's a lot to say.

There's this. This happened. Back around Thanksgiving.


Oh, and this. This was last week.

So... yeah.  Just a little bit going on. 

Expected debut August 3, 2013.

Sadie Sadie Pregnant Lady.  :)

p.s. If we are FB friends, please don't mention it there until I do.  Not broadcasting it there yet. Just feels too weird to do that, but I did need a place to talk about it, so that's why I'm announcing it here...

Per Desert Songbird's request for an update on Max, I provide the following:

A napping dog on a lazy afternoon.

Not to be neglected, I had to also post a pic of Big Kitty himself. Mr. Merlin, sharing a cuddle on the couch.

Not much to say today, working on a longer post to have out asap...

Inspired by my friend Andria over at Boy Crazy, I'm gonna try to post fifty-two times this year.  I will ATTEMPT to do so by posting once a week, but just in case I can't swing it I'm going to give myself the flexibility.

If I have to post fifty in the last week of the year that'll be tough.  :)

Upon Gayle's request, here's a couple pics of Alaska  (psst, Gayle, you know these are all on fb, right?).

This here's a glacier.  It's really big.  And it was cold and rainy and yucky that day, but it was still pretty cool.

And this here's just pretty.

The thing about January is, I feel hungover from the holidays, but work just keeps going.  The way I worked every file I have into the ground to finish the year left me a little shy on actual work to do, but there's always something.  Why doesn't work understand that I need a few weeks to recover?  Sigh.  It's a little slower than normal, which is somewhat nice.  But things just keep coming, Mondays always come around, and clients never really go away forever...  I'm taking of Martin Luther King, Jr Day (even though it's not a holiday for me) because I want it to be a holiday.  And it is a holiday for Fella. And my parents are coming to visit and so I need to be off anyway.

Wonder how often I can make that happen? ;)

This little fella, my sweet Dobby, joined my heart six years ago this week... and my goodness I can't imagine life without him. He is the sweetest, cuddliest, nose-lickingest 17 pound cat in the land. And has proven to be a great friend for Merlin, a.k.a. Big Kitty. Love you, baby boy.

Oh my dear Lord I have not written in nearly 6 months. New Year's Resolution: get back into the habit of writing.

Super fast updates:

I never really went back to Bikram .  I went a couple times in the summer, but really after the wedding my motivation was gone. I do need to do something, but I felt like Bikram took too much time from my day (90-minute class, followed by required shower).  I need a shorter less sweaty option.

My ex-husband (who recently divorced the wife after me) has remarried.  Poor girl.

In September Fella and I cruised Alaska with my people (my parents, my sister, BIL, and niece). It was lovely,  but I did not see whales or bears or moose.  The glaciers are incredible and worth the whole trip.

Fella and I spent our first married Thanksgiving with my fam in Charlotte, Christmas with his at our house, and New Year's Eve with friends also in Memphis. 

Work is work.  I busted my patoot  from October through the end of the year to make up for my low production this year (due to wedding-planning, honeymooning, and Alaskan cruising), but managed to make my yearly requirement with a day to spare.

Hope everyone's new year is off to a good start, and hopefully there are still some of you out there. :)
