We interrupt your regularly scheduled program.....

...to accommodate the DOG!

I have spent most of this miserable snowy/rainy day telling a dog that I have only a 31 day investment in to "get busy." I shoveled snow for this dog to do his business, I shoveled slush for him do his business. I shoveled slush mixed with shit so he would do his thang. And finally I shoveled puddles of water for this little boy to do his duty. I spent more friggen time with this dog out in the rain than I particularly care to. For what? A dog that I don't really like that much. He looks at me with sad eyes when I pick him up, turn him around and drop him back in a puddle and say "get busy." For some reason he likes me. Despite the fact that I kept dropping him in Mother Nature's mud puddle.

A little while ago, with supper dishes all cleaned up I thought I would sit down in front of the tv & computer with a brownie or three to spend a little me time. Nope. After spending the better part of the last 30 minuets outside, I took Fido in the house and gave him a treat (ok ok so he didn't produce, but it's a snacky kind of night.) He looked at me all wet, followed me to the couch and sat right on my lap all wet and stanky. He shook himself off then floofed up the couch blanket, sighed, looked at me and stuck his nose under my arm. Why me? This was supposed to be The Middle Child's dog. SHE was supposed to be the one to care for it, she and The Man I Married. Both professed their undying commitment to this house shitting, crate shitting, flea & ear mite infested mutt.

So here I sit with my arm up in the air as I type, lest I disturb the dog, I wonder what was I going to blog about if I didn't have the dog to complain about? Stacie, could you please pass me some lemonade to wash down my brownies?

Footnote...I tried and tried to link you Stacie, but I just couldn't figure it out. Maybe some time when I don't have a dog shoved up my armpit I can figure it out. Unless of course someone can explain

G did explain it well, but maybe not so well to a layman. So let me help.
First, when you on the page you want to link (stacie's post or homepage) then up in your address box (way at the top of your screen) right click and copy. Next go to your blog. Then while writing your post which I assume will include the name Stacie somewhere - or fabulous Soxy Deb for taking the extra time to go step by step... - then highlight that word (stacie) and on the top of your blog post there are controls - "B" "I" "T" "F" for all sorts of options - look for the one that looks like mother earth and when you click it, it will say "hyperlink" and a box will open. When the box opens, right click in it and paste what you previously copied and it should say something like this:
http://notnani.blogspot.com
I only used mine cause I don't know what Stacie's is, but that's the general idea.
It sounds like a lot of steps, but once you do it once, it's so freakin easy your gonna be all like - gah!! that was easy!! (lol) You may find you can even do it with a dog in your armpit!!
just sayin...
When you get better at it and don't need to look up everyone's URL's anymore, you wont need to do that copy and paste cause you'll already know what you want to hyperlink to.
TA-DA!!
And if you already figured this ALL OUT without my loooooooong description, then delete this (lmao)
