Here it Wednesday and I haven't even gotten to my blog this week!
Oh my god, it's Thursday!

   So I'd love to say I've been just so busy selling stuff on Etsy and writing in my new books and making x-mas things, but in reality, no. no.

   What I have been doing is KNITTING LIKE CRAZY! Thankfully that took care of a x-mas present, however I found out that for my baby's home birth, I need SIX wash clothes! I've finished one and am almost half way through another.
   I also need six towels which I will have to buy. Which is lame because our dryer broke. That was ok because our fantastic roomate decided to get one for us for x-mas, but now our FURNACE broke!

   To replace our furnace it's going to be $2000, low end.

   . . . I just quit my job last Saturday. We need our money for baby and midwife stuff. Now is not the time to suddenly need $2000, especially when the refuse to do payment plans and keeping the house at 80 degrees F is important so Baby doesn't freeze!

UPDATE: Dryer people were just here! We got our dryer! Horay! Unfortunately the outlet for the dryer is for a range stove. :S . . . What the . . .?  Now we have to hire an electrician to replace the outlet before we can use our dryer! :( Sad. 

   Also, I've been making 40 baby shower cards. I need them done by Friday.
   FORTY!! I was supposed to have help, but I guess that's not going to happen now, so I'm all alone to make 40 cards. . . and our printer ran out of ink . . . and the lady at the print shop never contacted me back . . . and it doesn't seem like my fiance got my texts about helping me last night. . .
   So, now I have to make the insides myself, put them on something portable and take them over to my aunt's house to print off! Good plan self! Let's see it in action!

What a week!

On a more adorable note, the neighbor's dog has claimed our house.

We've seen her quite a bit wandering outside. At first we figured she had gotten away from her people and would return that night. Then when we kept seeing her, I started to wonder if she was a stray. She has no collar and it seems like she's always outside. Poor doggy.

   After petting her for a few days my fiance let her inside our house one cold night, and well, now she comes over at least once a day.
   We're teaching her manners, but she's become very protective of our house. She runs out and barks at visitors, which I've never heard her do before she claimed our house! She's been living here for a while now and whenever I'd see her outside the most I've heard from her is a gruff little "woof." Before we let her inside she's never gone all out with the frantic, at your heels "this is my house! You back off!" barking.

  I'm not really sure what to do about that because, she's honestly not our dog so we're not going to keep her inside if she doesn't want to be, then again, when she just wants outside to bark at OUR visitors. :S What do I do?

   I'd hate to start training her outside and have her real owners come over and freak out, but then again they leave her outside until her feet bleed, so I don't mind that she's claimed us.

That and the fact that she is absolutely adorable. Next time she's over I think I'll take some pics. :D
And I'm off!
