Thought I would show you what my morning and evening look like each day. DISCLAIMER: this was a couple weeks ago when the table was messy. Today, it's still a little messy, but with not as much stuff - there's a lienenkugel sweating on the table (on coaster of course.., Jen) I had better tend to....
So, let me get something off my chest here. My neighbors, who are, pretty nice folks, decided it would be cool to get their kids pit-bull puppies. Both of their kids, one just graduated, the other is young - have no interest in taking care of dogs. So, good ol' dad goes out and purchases two large caged in fence structures (because the dogs have tried eating each other - literally - we saw it!!) - so, they keep them separated. So now, the dogs are REALLY not getting any attention. Before, I would walk up and pet them - they were the most adorable puppies. Now, we walk down our driveway - and bark, bark, bark, bark, bark, bark - get the picture? it's awful. I'm building up this steam toward my neighbors.. they don't seem to care that the dogs bark at us, they just are really good at ignoring it. Give me some advice here folks - i'm about to crack. To top this, the oldest kid, has figured out if he puts the truck in neutral, gasses it as loud as he can, then drop it in drive.. he can roast the tires! woopee!!! Alright. I'm showing my age aren't i?! i suppose I am. But, life isn't as easy now, as it was back when I was his age. At times, my job is pretty stressful. And somedays, or weekends, I'd like to sit back, relax and have things just be mellow. All of these recent neighborhood events have been motivating me even more to look into the whole refinancing thing, and eventually moving to a nice little beach house on 20 acres, with a nice deck out back where we could sip margarita's and watch the sun dip into the sea.. ahh.
Time for some z's. Last golf lesson was tonight and I'm whooped. Thanks to Andrea for the killer salmon - dang that was so good, perfect with brushetta! - Speaking of - I wanted to post the recipe for this brushetta if anyone wants to try it - it's really easy to make, drop me a line if you have any questions.
