Blog Break

Well, I sure did not mean to take a week long break from GFK. However, I was incredibly busy and distracted. First, my mom came into town over the weekend and we had a blast! Walking, hanging, watching Roku, crafting, shopping, and of course eating. Second, work has been kicking my butt. I start a new assignment and to say that I’m taking to it like a fish to water would be a lie. I’m struggling. I know things get better with practice and time, but it’s difficult at the moment. I’m mentally really tired. I haven’t been able to craft as much lately simply because my brain is overloaded. Third, GMAT prep is just crap. Wow the positive vibes are radiating out of me here – but – spending 15+ hours a week on something and seeing no improvement is just shitty. There I said it. I stand by my claim that I’ll pray to God I’ll pull a great score out of my ass on test day, but realistically it looks like I’ll need a formal ($$$$) class this fall. Le sigh.

Things getting me through the weather, life, work, and stress of May 2014: Long walks during lunch, epic BBQ sessions at my house at night, Yoga – handstands, Runs/Gym time, Candy/Sweets/Chocolate, T-we Tea, Roku 3, and the ugly tribe.

A Tale of Two Brothers

In honor of our last few days as a family of four I thought I would tell the story of two brothers – Leopold & Vladimir.

First there was a little spoiled pug named Leopold William Edward VIII.

Image

He was the epitome of an only child – not having to share any toys or treats.

Image

He even had his very own life vest and personal pool wrangler in the summer. (So spoiled)

But one day – a new creature appeared that everyone kept saying was his brother, Vladimir.

Image

It was hard to understand how this thing was his brother since they didn’t look anything alike and he looked kind of scary.

Image

At first it was awkward and there was lots of staring and sniffing.

Image

But slowly they started not minding each other – especially if mom was around.

Image

And one time Vladimir hurt his foot, but Leopold took care of him and made sure he was going to be as good as new.

Image

After that, Vladimir knew that Leopold was his brother – and started treating him like one.

Image

Image

They even had to wear matching outfits  Рhow embarrassing!

Image

But over the past 4 years Leopold and Vladimir have grown to love each other very much and they are really brothers.

Image

The End.

It will be so fun to have them meet their new ‘brother’ on Saturday – the story will only get better.
