All over the place

December 29th, 2014 at 10:41 am

Lots running through my head...

Christmas was phenomenal. Got some stuff we needed (more hangers, a portable phone charging device, flexible cutting mats) and some stuff we wanted (a waffle maker, a deep fryer, and a Keurig). While it was a very long day, it was great getting to spend time with both families and each other.

We visited the puppy we were considering adopting on Friday. She was very cute, but the reality of how much training she'd need (she was pretty nippy) set in, and we decided to hold off until after cheer and babysitting are over so I'd have more time to devote to training (Feb-Mar timeframe). I will continue checking the site as they list the puppies at as young as a week old, so if we see one we're interested in, we'll have to apply to reserve our place in the adoption line when they reach adoptable age.

We've been doing great on the not eating out. Between holidays and the food we had around, we should be set through most of this week as well. (Tonight may be an exception as SO forgot to pack me dinner, but I may try to just hold off through babysitting...)

I've tentatively set some 2015 goals. I need to think a little more through what's really achievable, but I want to get back on track. I'll outline those in its own post.

And lastly, SO and I talked about a very basic 5-year plan (it came up during a How I Met Your Mother episode). It's nice that we're both on the same page.

    I'm impressed. It takes a lot of discipline to say no to a dog. Good for you.

    Wow, it was really difficult. Luckily, the foster mom said she understood and respected our decision as giving her back later would be worse.

    Good on you for a realistic view of time and effort it takes to work with a puppy. This holiday we had fun with the waffle maker out on the counter and trying new ideas. Some were much better than expected, others...not so good. It doesn't feel like work when you're having fun in the kitchen and clean-up is minimal. Our original plan was using it as a substitute Panini Pan.

    Suggest omelettes with your preferred filling, grilled cheese sandwiches, french toast, frozen - shredded/hash brown/tater tots or left over mashed potato, left over stuffing, cinnamon rolls but didn't get around to trying out cake batter.

    The point is how super fast [2-3 minutes
