Another Picture From Mr. Frieze

Because enough is just never enough. Here is another pic of little Mr. Frieze. I can't wait to meet him. :-) He'll definately fit right in, he's already learning his products :-)

The Newest Memember of The Carpet Place

Meet Mr. Frieze, isn't he a doll :-) He lives at the Tigard store, so I haven't met him in person yet. I hope to soon, though. Enjoy :-)

Back to the Grind

Today is Aaron's first day back to school. I must say, it's bitter sweet, and I'm having a bit of a hard time with it. I have enjoyed having him home and he has been spoiling me rotten. We've had six weeks of actually seeing each other, not just passing in the hall as we are on our ways to work, school, ect. I'm also glad that he's going back, because everyday is one day closer to his graduation and becoming a dentist. I will be so glad when he is done. It's been harder for me to be patient, especially since we are over the half way point. I know I need to be patient, but sometimes I really struggle with it. So, that is what's going on in our neck of the woods. Tune in on Tuesday for a very special treat! God Bless you guys :-)

My Future Dentist, isn't he handsome!!!

Well, Rosco seems to be doing well, according to my mom. He's feeling better and the hard thing now is to keep him down, because he wants to play. As for Max, we are scheduled for his pre-surgery appointment on Oct. 4th. We're shooting for Oct 17th for his surgery. We'll know more later and I will be sure to keep you all updated. God Bless!

Love Lauren

Fur Babies Aches and Pains

Hello dear friends, I hope all is well in internet land. Those of you who are frequent readers know that our dog, Max, tore his ACL and is awaiting surgery in October. On Monday I called our Vet to schedule his pre surgery work, which will happen Oct. 4h. We're shooting for his surgery on Oct. 17th. Anyway, I got home Monday night and my mom called me with some ironicly awful news. I was expecting to hear that my childhood dog, Rudy, who will be 17 had passed. That, thankfully was not the case, and he is alive and well. Unfortunately, the news pertained to Rosco, my parent's 8 year old German Shepherd. He tore his ACL that morning and needs the same surgery as Max. It's crazy, something that we have never experienced has now doubled. Luckily for Rossi, he's scheduled for his surgery this Friday. So please keep our pups in your prayers. Love Lauren

Politics, Good Friends, and Long Walk

Okay, so the title of this post should sum up just how random this post will be :-) First off, I am absolutely thrilled about the McCain, Palin campaign. I know their both politicians, but Sarah Palin has a very geniune presence. I really enjoyed her speech at the Republican convention. I'm also very excited about McCain. I with most, but not all, of his policies, and I really admire his service in the war. What an amazing story and what courage. Okay, enough of my politics for now, time for the next random thing.

On Monday night we got to spend a great evening with an old friend, Max, from Flagstaff. He and Aaron went to highschool together and have continued to stay friends over the years. We went to McMenamins (yumm!), Aaron's dental school, and had a nice round of Season 5 of The Simpsons. It was a lot of fun, and really great to see someone from home.

Finally, the last bit of randomness. Today Aaron and I went for a very, very long walk from our house to Mount Tabor. We took Little Missy, aka Leila, with us. She was sooo, tired by the end, and has slept the rest of the day away. It was really nice just to get out of the house and take an "urban hike." The whole thing took us almost 2 hours, round trip, and was simply delightful. I hope all of you in computer land are having a great week as well. God Bless!
