It has been a whirlwind past few days! I was going full-speed all weekend, helping Danny move stuff out to Matt and Jen's new house near Chesapeake Beach, and then going out on the boat all day with friends on Saturday. Sunday was actually pretty lazy, but that's ok.
Danny talked to his dad a few days ago, and we're going down to Galveston next week to the beach. The only thing I'm dreading is being in a bathing suit, unfortunately. I just feel self-conscious, and I have plenty of weight left to lose. Not to mention it's Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, and oceans are looking pretty darn scarey right now :)
After a lot of thought, I'm going to forego the pony for the immediate future. I've been thinking of a puppy lately, too, but I think the best thing will be another adult dog. A friend for Ella that doesn't need as much work as a puppy. I'm going to be looking at Humane Society and maybe so local rescue dogs. I'm hesitant to search Craigslist, because I feel like people just put their problem dogs on there. Anyway, I'm off to do cost-analysis and look at dogs!
