200 Random Posts

Although technically I think it might have been the last post... Blogger doesn't count posts very well!

It took me almost 2 years to get to 100 posts and now 8 months later here I am at 200. Either I have more to say now or... well, I'm just rambling more.

Either way, here's a little update for this week.

The fire from the other day flared up again with our 30mph winds. Driving back down the valley this evening from my parents we could see the smoke and some flames. It has moved quite a bit farther along the ridge and covered about half the distance it was from a housing area. I hope they get a good line on that end as that's the way the wind is blowing...

I took Cory to the doctor this week as he had been whiny for an entire week and I was convinced it was an ear infection because teething couldn't be this bad...

Apparently it can. The doctor pronounced him in perfect health and we found out he weighs just over 25 pounds now. We got some baby Motrin to help with the swelling and he seems to be doing much better.

Although I'm wondering if he isn't also going through a growth spurt... he slept a ton today and kept telling me he wanted to eat every half an hour.

We're quite busy this weekend with grandparents coming to visit and also trying to paint my parents house... wind may be an issue (using a sprayer). Cory will enjoy lots of Grandma and Grandpa time and he's slowly making friends with the puppies.

Speaking of which... considering our family pretty much only owns Golden Retrievers...

What dog breed are you? I'm a Golden Retriever! Find out at

Golden Retriever

The Charmer

Laid-back, sociable and well-groomed, you've got your own hip little pack of groupies who just love to be around you. You have a brain inside that adorable little head of yours, though you use it mostly to organize your hectic social calendar. You never poop out at parties, and since you're popular with ladies and men, as well as children and adults, you dish out your wit, charm and luck to whomever is close enough to bask in it. The top dog likes you and wants to be your best friend, despite the fact that he doesn't really know what the heck you do. No one does, in fact, but everyone loves you all the same. A true foodie, you’ve got your keen ears fine-tuned to make sure you don't miss out on the opening of a trendy new place to nosh. But your youthful days of being able to wolf down food 24-7 are wagging behind you, meaning you've got to watch what you eat so you don’t pull a Brando and outgrow your coats.

FAMOUS GOLDEN RETRIEVERS: Bono, Robert Redford, Joe Montana, Julia Roberts

LIKELY PROFESSIONS: Journalist, Intelligence Agent, Venture Capitalist

I'm not sure how accurate it is, but it's fun! Try it out and see what you are!
