January Post

Well I suppose I should get a post in before my live gets turned upside down by the Iphone.... ooohh ahhhh... ya I'm over it too already lol. Christmas and New Years was great. Glad to be back to normal life... well for a week or so more lol. We had a great Christmas with my side of the family and Dan and Alicia. Fun as always lots of fun family bonding. New Years.... well that was an interesting few days. Back to back blizzards, 100 car pile up, trapped inside the house for almost 3 days. My roomie from last year came up to visit thinking she would be able to get home on new years eve day.... well that plan went out the window when blizzard number 1 hit. So since we were going no where on new years eve day I put her to work... ok I helped too and she offered. But we got the guest bedroom painted finally luckily I had picked up paint 2 days before for whenever we had time. So it is all painted a really nice blue color all I have left to do is put the room back together lol. That night we tried going to a friends who was 2 blocks away... ya no go got about half way there before we got stuck and so we turned around and had a nice new years eve just the three of us (I went to bed at 1130 lol). Finally on the 2nd the town put itself back together and started opening up stuff so Ari could get back home to her fam and I could get back to work. Oh ya and eventually they did come plow eagle run but I'm pretty sure it was the very last place to be plowed so for a while the streets were only one car width wide from the trucks driving through.
A week and a half ago me and josh went to Denver to visit his aunt and uncle and snowboard. We had a blast only went snowboarding one day and man did I hurt after one day. Lets just say snowboarding is not my cup of tea. I love my skis. I just couldn't get myself to go down the hill sideways I don't like facing where I'm going. Here is a pic of Josh and Jared going skiing down the continental divide(note I'm not due to still being in pain)
We had a blast spending time with the family too. We hadn't gotten to see them since the wedding :( Baxter also got to come with and he met a new friend Kota -
They had a blast playing with each other!
Baxter got a new bed from Kathie Jo, she had bought it for one of the other cats they had but none of the cats ever liked it but Baxter loves it!
Kota wanted to come home with us. I'm sure that Dave would have been fine with us taking Kota home but we figured we would be nice and not steal Kota from Dave being he loves Kota so much lol

Here is a video of Baxter and Kota playing

oh ya and lets not forget the easy plane ride home... or lack there of. We got to the airport around 7am Sunday morning hoping to get on a 9am flight... that was our first failed flight... then we tried to get on a bunch of other delta flights but everything was over booked and what wasn't the planes broke down so about half way through the day we decided to try getting on the united flights. we finally got on a flight late Sunday night to Bismarck because that was the closest that we could get to Fargo... well we got kicked off that one. Finally got on a flight and not kicked off around 10:30pm and into Bismarck around 2am. Thanks to our lovely Mothers we did not have to stay over in Bismarck they drove to Bismarck so they could be there in time to pick us up and drive us back to Fargo. It was a long day but glad to be home at the end of it. I guess that is the price we have to pay every once and a while to fly for free whenever we want.

Well that is what has been going on in our life lately to come is CrAzYnEsS!!! Iphone is in Verizon stores on Feb 10th let the madness begin!!! I will be back once it all dies down.

Distracted

Ok so I should be cleaning right now being that Christmas day is going to be at mine and josh's place and I still work atleast 16 hours if not more between now and Christmas which leave not much time to clean the house and hide all of baxters toys and all of our shoes so he does not find them but tonight has been filled with distractions like.....
the tv though we do not have cable it always distracts me. I am actually glad that we do not have cable anymore I get more done and it is less of a distraction now that we only have 5 channels instead of hundreds.
Then the newly ENGAGED couple my brother in law and my soon to be sister in law. Which of course huge distraction that I will take any day... much much more important than cleaning. So got to visit with them about how everything went. I already knew how it was going down but to hear that it all went as planned was very fun to hear. And of course the ring! I had seen it before but it looks even better on Ashley's hand those little ring boxes do not do the ring justice. So it sound like the wedding will end up being aug or sept but most likely sept and in HAWAII woot woot, though I already knew this since Ashley has been working on getting everything set up for it. But now that they are officially engaged(they practically have been for quite some time just not technically) Ashley is excited to do lots more of the planning now. I can not wait for their wedding not only because it is Hawaii but also to have Ashley join the family(officially of course) and she did catch the bouquet at mine and josh's wedding making it her turn to get married which will always be a fun story.
And of course blogger I quick looked on here to see if there were any updated blogs which of course there were so I read them and decided to blog like Dani did to keep away from what I should be doing.

The next few days will be some crazy days tomorrow is a 10 hour work day and then Christmas eve day is a 6 hour work day and both could easily be even longer. But after getting through the next little bit of work it will be so nice to celebrate Christmas and spend time with family and relax.

Oh ya probably should mention can't remember if i did in the last blog but my brat of a husband is in florida right now without me... maybe since he went with out me i will just leave the house cleaning to him that sounds fair right, Im a busy working woman while he is off having fun in florida. Well off to go see what mess Baxter has made.

Merry Christmas

Christmas Crazies

Things have been crazy around here. Working in retail means long hours around Christmas and dealing with lots of crazy people/crabby people. I have today and tomorrow off. It is so nice to have two days off in a row and on a weekend. Finally getting caught up on Christmas cards, all addressed and ready to go just haven't made it to the mail box. I have all of the Christmas presents bought... now just to finish wrapping them which needs to be done today since some of them are for the Christmas tomorrow. House clean... not so much but I tried. Every time that I get it clean it seems as though it is trashed within a day. hmm... wonder who could be doing that maybe a little puppy who feels the need to bring all his toys out, play with all our shoes... whenever we leave somewhere we have to go hunt our shoes down, or tearing apart anything that he can get a hold of such as paper(always something important of course), cell phones, computer cords, and the newest addition stuffed animals... he has a puffkin that he loves and has finally ripped it open and how the stuffing is all around the house.

well off to try to clean the house as baxter destroys it and get Christmas wrapping done and the Christmas cards sent out so you get them before Christmas.

I will try to make another post sooner than later Im pretty sure I will be able to before Christmas :) hopefully lol

READ!!!! FREE PICTURES

Thanks to one of my besties Dani you are able to get 50 free Christmas cards from shutterfly. All you have to do is fill out the form at FREE PICS! and then just blog about it so others can get the free pics too. Then go HERE giving them to the link to your blog about the free pictures. But this is awesome if you ask me I have always been a fan of shutterfly because of their great quality and awesome deals like this all the time... they love giving free pictures away. This is a great way to get some cute cheap(as in free) Christmas cards out to the family and friends. Ok enough about that....

Guess where we went!!!! FLORIDA! We took a mini vaca with baxter and flew down to Florida to stay at Josh's parents place for a few days(and by few I mean a mini mini vaca... only 4 days and two of them spent flying but it is better than nothing). It was baxters first plane ride and it is nice with josh's flight benefits that baxter is able to fly with us in the plane for free he did very well. Spent our two days at the beach. The first day we went to sanabel island and fort myers beach... well a few miles down from the main pier being dogs aren't allowed there and both were very enjoyable baxter really loved the beach... not the ocean so much but the beach he absolutely loved. Then Thursday we went to the beach that we found last Christmas right before you cross the bridge to captiva from sanabel. It was perfect weather that day I think we ended up spending atleast 4 hours there if not more. We even saw some dolphins there this time last year we saw a shark it swam up along the shore line I guess they are pretty harmless there but I was still happy not to see a shark and see dolphins instead. Baxter dug and dug in the sand... also ate lots of sand he preferred to eat his food in the sand instead of in the dish that did not have sand in it. So pretty much all we did on vacation was hang at the beach and you can tell that by josh's sun burn... he didn't think that the CVS sunscreen that i bought actually did any good so he only put it on his shoulders which of course then did not burn and the rest of his body is burnt... with a very distinct line where he did put sunscreen. that will teach him to doubt my CVS sunscreen.

Well I guess it is back to work and all that junk :( but here are some pictures of baxter at the beach and maybe a video if I can figure out how to work it :)

Florida in a week Woot-Woot

Things around the house are finally starting to get into a routine. It is very nice to not be traveling anymore. The hotel rooms were nice... really nice, but it is so nice to be in my own house and be able to keep up with the house work... well better than i was before. Though with baxter that gets to be very difficult being him and chloe bring out every toy he has anytime i put them away. it feels as soon as i get one room picked up and spotless everything in its place and clean the rest of the house is a disaster... right now the one room that is perfect is the guest bedroom.... the one room we never use but it seems so be the junk room where everything gets thrown... hopefully after me organizing it this time and labeling everything it can stay clean so that it will be ready for when we get company. and i guess the kitchen is also spotless right now too but i try to always keep it that way. so now to just get the living room and bedroom all cleaned up might try doing that after this.

Josh is now working only at the airport and then also doing school full time.... and doing great at both. he really seems to like the airport and of course the benefits it was fun flying to the cities for free to just go shopping :) hopefully after the holiday season is over we will have more time to travel. Josh is doing great in school right now! he is taking all online classes so it is up to himself to get him to learn the information and get all the homework done. a lot more than i could have done he is getting a 4.0 as of right now as long as he keeps his grades where they are at right now!!!

Next week me and josh and baxter are going to florida for 4 days :) I cant wait to get away even if for only 4 days.

Well i have run out of things to say so i will leave you guys with a picture of baxter :)


Well baxter and ninja

busy busy life of the clarks (and more pics of baxter)

Well it has been a while so I suppose it is time for a new post. Things have still been crazy around the Clark house hold. I am still getting used to the new job this week was my first week on the floor at verizon. training was good but im so glad to be done! We also now have baxter... what a handful lol. He is so full of energy the first few days potty training went great... now not as great but still decent but having more accidents now. him and chloe keep me and josh rather busy they are slowly trying to play together more... i will try to post a video of it. Josh is now working one day a week at the cabinet shop and then part time at the airport here in fargo oh ya and going to school too. so saying he keeps busy would be an understatement. He is really enjoying the new job at the airport. we are also rather excited about the benefits ;) hopefully life will slow down a bit so that we can enjoy it im already planning a trip to LA in january or febuary.... once we get past the black out months at verizon. Josh is doing great in school so far it seems as though he always is getting done with his stuff early though this week was a little harder for him being i was not there thursday and friday to help with baxter so he didn't get as much school time but he still gets it done :)


well im not sure what else to say so i'll post some pics of baxter and try for that video :)
