Project 365, Days 111-120

Day 111: A sleepy puppy. Usually she just uses her bed for digging but every once in a while, she actually sleeps there.

Day 112: Blizzard needs a haircut. He’s starting to look a little shaggy

Day 113: Every time I mop the floor, Nala has to roll around on it. It’s like she’s trying to help dry it or something.

Day 114: I’ve been working on a couple of small projects around the house. One of them is to set up an office area for myself. Moved my desk downstairs and I’m ready to go.

Day 115: Another project is setting up the fish tank. I got it moved to it’s proper location and cleaned out. Now we have to decide exactly what we want in it.

Day 116: One of Nala’s favorite toys is my old cow slipper. She loves to attack it and bury her face in it.

Day 117: Can anyone explain to me why we, a store in Wisconsin, have gift cards with the Chicago Bulls on them but none with the Green Bay Packers?

Day 118 : Nala thinks she has a sweet tooth. Her goal is to get the bag of Easter candy.

Day 119: More Nala, this time digging in my basket of blankets.

Day 120: I didn’t take this photo, and it’s not recent, but it’s important to me. It’s our first family photo, taken in Novosibirsk, Siberia, shortly after we were able to leave the orphanage with our two boys. We were waiting for the government to process the documents that would allow us to leave the country and return home. It was 21 years ago today.

Project 365, Days 91-100

 

Day 91: Belly rub, please

Day 92: Roland had his annual Awards banquet for work. He got the “executive” award.

Day 93: The gang from Roland’s office

Day 94:  Watching a movie in literature class. We’re reading the Chronicles of Narnia and watch the movies after reading the books (both the older BBC versions and the newer releases)

Day 95: Nala likes to live dangerously. She runs up to Blizzard, grabs either his tail or his leg, barks and runs away. Then, she circles around and does it again.

Day 96: Still being goofy and trying to play with the “old man” who doesn’t like to play.

Day 97: One of Nalas new discoveries: her reflection. When she stands here, she can see her reflection in the window. When she sees her reflection, she barks.

Day 98: A trip to Chicago to visit Greg. We went to Millennium Park and saw the “Bean”

Day 99: It’s a rainy night but it’s better than more snow

Day 100: When I go away, even if it’s just for a little while, I usually come home to some kind of mess. Shredding toilet paper is a common passtime of Nala’s

 

Project 365, Days 81-90

Day 81: Nala loves Mint Oreo mixers from Culvers

Day 82: After eating the last little bit out of the bottom of the ice cream cup, she has slightly green-tinted fur. Bath time!

Day 83: Another night after work, another dead battery. Waiting for a ride, again.

Day 84: Stockmen at work couldn’t keep up so I get the “pleasure” of pushing carts in. Yea me.

Day 85: Finally a sunny day. Now, if the temperature would just go up a bit

Day 86: Early Valentine’s day dinner at Casa del Tequila

Day 87: There’s no telling what these girls will do in co-op class. Today, it was trying to imitate one of the 10 Commandments posters in the Sunday School room. They’re trying to look like a 5

Day 88: New nails again.

Day 89: Roses for Valentine’s Day

Day 90: Outside at work again. This time, shoveling and salting the slippery handicapped parking spots.

Project 365, Days 61-70

Days 61 & 62: I decided to try out using a bullet journal this year. These two pictures are two of the pages I am using.  I’m not overly artistic or creative, so I adapted layouts I found onine. Stay tuned for updates on this endeavor.

Day 63:  My lunch at work today. Look at all that nutrition–not!! I think I really need to start eating healtier.

Day 64: Nala got into the chili today and is now wearing a tomato mustache. She’s a quick little thing.

Day 65: Even Roland loves playing with Nala.

Day 66: It was warm today. So warm and rainy that our yard is flooded. This is only one of many puddles.

Day 67: New nails again. I love the cat’s eye polish

Day 68: We have some unique stuffed animals for Valentines Day at Walmart this year. Nothing says “I love you” like a stuffed camel.

Day 69: I may never wash this hand again. I shook hands with the great former Packer player George Koonce

Day 70: One more of the unique animals. I am in love with this sloth.

Project 365, Days 51-60

I am so far behind in posting these. How does time slip away so easily?

Day 51: That’s a normal face for my little Nala. She loves playing in her water dish and her face is always wet because of it.

Day 52: This is what the floor looks like every day because Nala loves to play in her water.

Day 53: She’s trying so hard to be patient and wait for whatever treat might be coming her way.

Day 54: Tried this candy bar today at work. Was not impressed. Give me chocolate any day

Day 55: Nala has the annoying habit of scratching at Janelle’s door whenever she feels like playing with somebody, even if it’s 2:00 am. Janelle came up with this solution tonight to prevent her sleep from getting interrupted. I think I will buy a baby/puppy gate for her.

Day 56: It is so cold here right now. With the doors in the front of the store constantly opening all day, it is cold in the store. I have resorted to putting hand warmers in my pockets to help keep warm.

Day 57: Sleepy puppy

Day 58: Dinner out today with Roland and Janelle.

Day 59: Sitting in the parking lot after work. Waiting for a ride because my battery is dead.

Day 60: She just had a bath and a haircut. She’s looking much smaller and fluffier.

 

Project 365, Days 41-50

41) Watch me grow. Nala is now 4 months old and getting bigger everyday, although half of her size is probably fur.

42) The result of playing with Nala–small cuts and bites where she misses the target she’s aiming for and ends up grabbing my hand instead of her toy.

43) Would anybody really buy these and wear them? They don’t look very manly to me

44) I had a little fun with Snapchat filters to welcome the new year. Happy 2018 everybody.

45) We finally had our turkey dinner. Due to a series of unfortunate events, turkey never happened on Thanksgiving. I promised Greg that I would make turkey before he goes to college. Since that is only 3 days away and I didn’t have to work today, today was turkey day.

46) Only I could break a nail while locking the bathroom stall door at work.

47) New nails. I love these. Definitely one of my favorites.

48) We brought Greg to college today, Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. This is the view from his dorm room.

49) Unlike Greg’s great view, this is my view today. Doing CBLs at work. In other words, trying to stay awake while learning about fire extinguishers and other safety issues.

50) Tony at work thinks he’s funny. He put locks on all of our water and soda bottles so we had to work a bit harder to get a drink.

Project 365, Days 6-10

Day 6: Thanksgiving Day. Our family dinner didn’t go quite as planned. Our turkey ended up ruined so we had ham. I finally got my turkey dinner at work later that night. One of the benefits of working at Walmart on Thanksgiving–free turkey dinner.

Day 7: After working the Black Friday rush, sometime after midnight, we get a bit silly at work. Or, maybe it’s just exhaustion. Hard to tell sometimes.

Day 8: This is her “I’m sorry face”. She got a hold of my glasses and chewed them. They are still wearable, but I will need to get new ones. How can I stay mad at that face?

Day 9: The things I find when my son is home. It seems he’s picked up a new habit.

Day 10: Watching TV with 2 dogs and my favorite Packer blanket–just what the doctor ordered when I’m not feeling well.
