Introducing Minnie Callaghan! And other ramblings

Here she is- Minnie! She is a Maltese puppy and was born on January 1st 2008. She weighs about 1 lb (I'm trying to get her to gain weight!) but she is tiny. She was the runt of her litter but is a little daredevil. She has no fear about anything, which is scary sometimes considering she has an open fontanel (soft spot in her head) and could seriously injure herself easily!
Luckily Molly is sweet to her.

On another note, I did a painting last night. It is acrylic on illustration board. The subject should look familiar :-)

I am trying to figure out how I can go back to college and get a art/ graphic design degree. I realize that I would be a lot happier doing something with my art we'll see.

One Year Anniversary!

I can't believe it's already been a year since we were married! It is kind of overwhelming to think of everything that we have done within this year!

we graduated from TU, moved to LA, Glenn started law school,I interviewed for jobs, I found a job, quit my job, found a MUCH better job, learned how to get around LA, Glenn quit law school, got 2 job offers in TX, accepted the one in Houston, we packed up all of our stuff, drove back from LA to Lake Jackson, we now are in the process of moving into our new apartment in Pearland...whew!

We are happy to be back in a familiar place and to have our little Molly back. We are also thrilled to have a washer and dryer and a garage! yay!

The Hotel California...Apparently you can check out and you can also leave

My last day of work is this coming Tuesday (Mar. 4th), the movers come Wednesday, and we are on the road Thursday morning. It is kind of surreal, but at this point I just want everything to be done and over with. Especially the drive! I wish I could just wiggle my nose and skip the next few days and be in TX, but alas I can't.

With Glenn's moving bonus we are able to have movers come and box our stuff up and load it on the truck and the whole nine yards. This is a very odd feeling for me though b/c I just want to be doing something. I feel like I should be packing boxes and looking around at everything makes me anxious. I have been cleaning, sorting, taking the pictures off the wall, spackling nail holes, etc, but until our stuff is boxed and ready to go I think I will be a little unsettled!

We have an apartment reserved in Pearland and the best part is that we will have an attached garage AND...drumroll please...a WASHER & DRYER!!!!! I haven't had my own washer and dryer since I lived with my parents. Community laundry rooms and laundromats have gotten very old over the past few years.

Also I am ready for some good food. My favorite restaurants are in TX. I haven't found any seafood, barbeque or Mexican restaurants anywhere that can hold a candle to those in Texas. It is a good thing that my apartment has a workout room b/c I will most likely need it after stuffing my face.
