New Pup Update, The Mondays, And The New Pup's Name is...

Thank you all so much for the name advice and poll votes... the winner is Remy!!! Here's a pic of our new little Tiger!

(both the poll winner and the one we felt suited her best!) She really is the sweetest little thing and I think both names would suit her. (For those who asked in the comments, she is a malti-poo - maltese/poodle mix; Reuben is a shih-poo - shih tzu/poodle mix). I did feel awful last night though - we are kenneling her while we sleep until I trust her and Reuben to be alone together while we're sleeping. So she's in the kennel and she's crying. A lot. Like more than she did her first night. I tried to be stoic and not give in. This a.m. I went in to get the little bundle and she had gone #2 in there - poor thing! She was SO upset. You know pups hate to have to use it in their "den." So we cleaned it and now we'll just have to make SURE she's empty before bed time. Honestly, it could have been the shots - we thought she was empty! Anyway... it's all good in the hood!

So yesterday was just one of those days.
  • We get up to RAIN. Like dark.... monsoon. This means the dogs can't go out and it will take me over an hour to get in.
  • I have to stop at Publix on the way in for a birthday card for work... I have Austin's umbrella. It's huge. It opens but it won't close so i'm fighting it... it wins.
  • I realize there is a spider on the umbrella. I've transported it from the garage to my CAR. Oh my.
  • I get in... late... work sucks. People are stupid. I want to slap folks.
  • My external copywriter of four years on a HUGE annual project I do ever year quits.
Other than the above, I skipped my lunchtime workout - needed a vent/chill sesh with Stacy instead at Uncle Julio's. After work I raced home, grabbed the new pup and we headed to the vet. Clean bill of health, and we did shots and then back home by 8:30 p.m. to pretty much chill with the pups and go to sleep. I was SO tired yesterday - blah. Definitely ready to get back to my routine today!!

Q: How was your Monday? I know, in perspective, mine wasn't bad, just annoying. LOL

Q: How do you feel when you get out of your workout routine? I haven't gotten to work out since Friday - I feel anxious, bloated and overall just blah.

P.S. I finished Undone today so i'll post a book review tomorrow, I have a new recipe to share - yum!, and I hope/plan to do a photo shoot tonight!

Oh boy, our first night of crate training with Lulu was absolutely horrible. It got ten times better each night after, though, so I hope it's the same for you guys!

Reuben & Remy, so cute! It's perfect for her. Sorry you had a case of the Mondays - it was definitely a nasty one here in Atlanta! And crate-training puppies can be just like a newborn - we hated doing it with our pup Bailey (cockapoo, love the "poo" mixes) bc he kept us up all night! Hopefully you get some sleep & back into the workout routine - it's always so hard but I feel so much better after. Hope you're enjoying your new fur baby :)

It definitely could have been the shots. Such a cute pupster! It all depends on the situation as to how well I deal with being off routine. Sometimes I do fine, especially if I know I can make up for it, but if scheduling is already tight, then it's a bigger deal ;-)
