Ziggy's Roses

My days and nights have changed drastically.
My days are spent staring at the puppy
waiting for him to pee/poop on the floor.
Man puppy poop stinks.
And Will has said that he'll throw up if he even hears the word poop
so we decided to change the word poop to roses.
"Did Ziggy do roses"
"Whose turn is it to pick up the roses?"
Sounds better than poop right?

My nights end pretty early now.
With Stephen's rowing schedule I'm up at 5:00
to drive him.
I really kind of like it.
Except I'm in bed every night by 9.
Last night it was 8:30.
Steve says he's really looking forward to retirement with me.
He thinks I act like I'm 80.
Anyway, thank GOD for DVR.
Cuz I missed Modern Family last night.
The one and only tv show I watch.
I couldn't even stay awake.
Maybe I'll watch it now
At 6:00 a.m.


  1. so glad you are having fun with ziggy! he looks like a stuffed cuddly and cute! the first 6 months of a puppy is like the first 6 months of having a baby...lots of unknowns, little sleep and many trials and errors.
    thinking of you!

  2. that puppy is adorable, roses and all!!

    This year we are also heading to bed super early because although I've always gotten up early, with middle school 3 of us need to be up by 5:30, so bedtime for the kids is pushed WAY up and I find myself in bed, reading, by 9 and sound asleep by 9:30! I can't even imagine what it will be like during basketball season when we don't get home until 7:30 or 8!!! yikes!

    I will be a bad retiree too, but since my husband is also a "go to bed early" type, we'll be just fine I'm sure with the early bird dinners and lights out after Jeopardy! oh boy!

  3. your life is a bed of roses : )
    love the shot of griffy & ziggy looking out to sea ~ both with their baby fuzz.
    it will get easier, and it will be SO worth it ♥

  4. Ziggy is adorable! OMG so cute!! The good new is they learn to do there roses in the right spot sooner than you think! Hang in there.

  5. Love that first pic Pam, Ziggy & his boy, so sweet!!! If you need any help from afar w/ puppy tips, let me know ... any time he's sniffing the floor pick him up and put him outside, also after playing, use same door always - soon, he'll go to the door by himself.

  6. i'm sorry, but next to our sweet golden cody, ziggy is the cutest little ball of fluff i have ever seen!
    roses and all....
    modern family was good!
    hope it made you smile this morning
    have a happy day pam

  7. He's so cute...... even if he poops.... or roses, I guess. Watch Modern Family ASAP!
