So Good to be Home

I don't even know how many weekends we've been gone from home, but I know it's been a lot. Maybe four in a row? I've lost count. Of course, it was all for good reasons: visits to family, baby showers, visiting friends we haven't seen in a while. But it really starts to be tough to keep things done around the house, especially when you're working. I find myself asking, how these women find time to do this:

I mean, am I the only person who feels so overwhelmed and exhausted that I never have time to do anything? Maybe I am. Or maybe I just shouldn't put so much pressure on myself? Or maybe I just enjoy reading and watching TV too much. It's probably that one, come to think of it. Plus, I guess blogging just isn't that important to me (gasp!). It's not something I think about often, even though I'm always perusing others' blogs, and I never think to take pictures of important things that I could actually post. I barely have found time to weed the flower garden (which was pathetic, and I'm really glad that I didn't remember to take pictures of that, because I might have actually posted them), and I can't even tell you how long it has needed it.

So I've just decided that maybe I should post about my "favorite things", as I have seen others do. I definitely have lots to say about that. Right now, one of my fave things is this...

JC came home and told me there was a "cutest dog" contest in the Atlanta area. Of course, I suggested that our dogs are by far the cutest, and JC reminded me that everyone thinks that about their dogs. Which is probably true. And really, our dogs are just pretty average. But that's okay--I love them anyway.
