Along For The Ride

Triggers first trip on the boat with us was Sunday. I think he had a blast (I will post pictures soon to verify my claims). :o) After all the rain we figured it was due time to take the boat out for a bit & after some persistent begging & puppy dog eyes I convinced Steven to let Trigger tag along. We didn’t take both dogs because they do not seem to behave as well when together; they tend to work each other up into a frenzy of excitement & anticipation. Anyways, after a little complaining from Dad about his truck having Trigger hair all over it we made it to base to put the boat in. Full steam ahead to Hooters for some lunch & a pitcher, Trigger seem to be enjoying the boat ride as he checked every seat in the boat for the most comfortable. He finally found one we were all happy with, on my lap next to Dad with a full view all everything. Arriving at Hooters I was a little apprehensive about Trigger behaving & not being able to have a relaxing, enjoyable meal. But much to my surprise he was the trophy dog! I couldn’t have asked for a better behaved dog & we were SO proud of him. He chilled under the table as we slipped him a little tid-bit or two, there was no begging though. When people came up to see him he either remained laying or greeted them calmly & with no jumping! All our hard work has paid off!!! We took a few pictures & tried to get him to take one with a Hooters girl but he wasn’t too comfortable doing it, so we didn’t push it. After lunch we wanted to take a few moments to hop in the water & cool off & try Trigger in the water. We calmly placed him in the water with one of us & he didn’t like it. I think the body of water was a little too big for my little guy. But now I know that he is not big into swimming, which takes a little fun out of bringing him on the boat but it takes a lot of worry out of it on the other hand. We will defiantly bring him again as he was such a joy!

Tropical Storm Fay

Well, we all survived Tropical Storm Fay! Yes, Steven was gone but I think I did a pretty good job. We didn’t have anything at the house for a hurricane or a tropical storm so I had to go shopping, fill up the Jeep & of course get some kind of craft to keep me busy. After running around all day Wednesday I was pooped! I stayed home that evening & they packed up the dogs & an over night bag & went to my dad’s so I wouldn’t have to sit alone as well as the dogs not driving me nuts. I am very thankful that my parents are so laid back & have tile & a couple extra old sheets. It is so nice to be able to bring the my 2 little, darling, heathens to my dad’s & for them to welcome them with open arms & not worry about the mud they tracked in or the dirty paw prints that they left on the (sheet protected) couches. Friday I ventured home & spent the rest of the day hanging out with the dogs, watching for tornados & working on a craft. It was a fairly relaxing day, except all the tornado scares, luckily though I didn’t have to spend any time in the tub :o). Saturday was a lot better but still wet, I assessed the damage at our house, which thankfully wasn’t a lot, a full panel of our fence blew down & another panel had a screw come out, besides that we got a lot of rain that our ground didn’t know what to do with, but over all we were good. Saturday we all had to get out of the house & Jenny, Katie & I went to lunch & looking around at a store or two, mostly just killing time for Steven to arrive. Sunday was really nice during the day; we took the boat out for a long overdue trip, went to lunch & swam a bit on the way back home, later that night though we got another good amount of rain. I remember Steven saying “It is STILL raining?!?!?”

Family First….????

Steven will more than likely be flying a plane across country for the next few days to be hurricane evacuated, meaning he will be leaving us here. It is not his choice & comes with the job, but it doesn’t make it any less crappie! I understand the amount of damage that could happen to the planes & the amount of money that would cost but on the other hand what happened if there was a bad tropical storm or hurricane that came through & I & the dogs had to evacuate ourselves or something happened to the house, I am then dealing with it all without him. I am though lucky enough to have family here & the families who don’t are in my thoughts. I know my thoughts are really irrational but hurricane Katrina sticks in my mind when knowing that the guys will need to get all the planes out of harms way. I will be lucky enough to know that he is safe, but will he know that I am safe. This lifestyle sometime gets really tough & exhausting to deal with, but what do you do but try to keep your chin up & move forward. Doesn’t mean that sometimes I HATE it all!

About Me

I am not neat and organized.

I do not have to be the center of attention, but I love it when I am.

I have worked many jobs…cashier, host, child care teacher, telemarketer, receptionist, customer service, secretary, dog trainer.

I am going to school & pursuing a career in dog training.

I am one of many, many siblings.

I surf the internet with no rhyme or reason.

I love to take pictures, but have no clue as to what I am doing.

I am incredibly afraid of lightning but love watching it from a safe place.

I am afraid of going in water I can not see through.

My spelling is something to be desired & spell most words exactly how they sound.

My dogs are my children.

I have been told “I love you” with Reese’s Pieces.

I’m not always outgoing but I am not always shy either, I am the happy medium.

Crafts are my hobby.

I am not usually one to rush.

I am creative & colorful yet simple.

I wait for things to go on sale.

I enjoy & am thankful for the simple things in life.

I am a good shot with a gun.

I don’t like leaving voicemails.

I try to think outside of the box.

First things first :o)

My first blog. Honestly I don’t know why I have actually decided to do this but I have and if you are reading this then I did.

I guess I figured this might be a way for people I don’t talk to often enough to keep up with the ever changing & evolving life.

So with further ado…

I am a wife. I am my husband’s mistress – Go Navy! I have met many friends through the military that I wouldn’t trade for the world. I tend to ramble my posts so either bear with me or don’t. I drink beer, use spell check a LOT, I am scared of lightning. I have 2 dogs, 3 turtles, two snakes, spilt ends, an elliptical but use the gym's and a boat that is not used enough. But mostly….I am Amanda.
