Naughty puppy

I accidentally fell asleep without locking Diesel up...this is what I woke up to. At least it was a really old pillow. Miles wasn't too happy either, but I told him Diesel was trying to make it look like it had snowed inside by the tree. He didn't think that was funny either. haha. I'm just happy Diesel hasn't destroyed anything of value...he has plenty of chew toys to keep him occupied.

Some random updates

Well, I haven't updated in a while so I have a lot of random information to talk about! First off, Miles and I bought a "new" car!! We've been wanting to sell his truck and get something both of us can drive (I tried to learn how to drive a stick-shift...definitely NOT for me!) and that has a little more room. Within 2 days we were able to sell his truck and buy an SUV. We ended up getting a 2000 Ford Explorer. It's a two door, and candy-apple red. We've had a few issues right off the bat, such as breaking down 60 miles from home (coming home from Cabelas with Alex and Lissa, they got to share in our fun!) We ended up getting it towed, which was a first time experience for me and hopefully the last! I guess the alternator went out, so hopefully that won't happen again. Anyway, Miles has been having a good time getting the SUV all camo-ed out and I'm just excited to be able to drive his vehicle now! Our Mister Diesel is doing good, he got fixed and I just laughed when the vet said for him to not jump or run for 14 days. Really?!? You tell that to a 4 month old puppy. Anyway, he healed perfectly even with all the playing he did. He's recently decided to eat the blankets that he sleeps on in his crate, I discovered this when I woke to him puking up a huge mass of material. So he doesn't get anything to sleep on for now (for his own safety) Another big event just brother Justin graduated from Basic Training today! He joined the Army and has been away at bootcamp since September. He's doing great and he gets to move to Alabama now for the next part of his career. My whole family got to go to South Carolina to see him graduate, while Miles and I were stuck at! I was really bummed but I got to talk to him tonight! I can't wait until his 2 week leave on Dec 18th! I'll add some pictures once I get home on my own computer (I'm at work still) Well, that's about all the updates I can think of for now...I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and remembers to thank God for all the blessings he has placed in our lives!

Playing in the snow!

I woke up Friday morning to snow on the ground! I was so surprised...and excited to see how Diesel would react to his first snow experience. He first smelled it and licked it, and then dug in it some. It was so cute. I got out the camera and caught this funny video....

Playing in the leaves!

Diesel had so much fun playing in our big pile of leaves!! He would get lost in it!

I know I'm a slacker and definitely don't update this much...I'm still not used to having a blog. I do update facebook so I figured I can just share some of the links to the albums for anyone who wants to see them!

New Job!

Finally...after searching for over 5 or 6 months I (Alli) got a job! Although it is not in the social work field, I decided that it will be great experience in general. I will be working for Whirlpool doing service calls from Home Depot dealing with all their products and whatnot. It's a full time job with benefits and I'll have my own little cubicle! I start training on Sept. 7th. I have the potential to eventually move up and be hired into Whirlpool in a position that is more social work related too. I can't believe I finally found something, it's such a huge relief especially since we'll be moving into our house in a few weeks! Well, other than that news not much has been happening. We've got a busy month ahead of us with moving and me starting a job...but it will be so exciting!

I've been bored lately (mainly since I'm still unemployed, ugh!) so I decided to mess with our blog and make it look cool! Miles is in his 3rd week at his job at Berrien County Juvenile Center, he's learning a lot and he is enjoying it. I'm still looking for jobs, I had two interviews this week, and I'm waiting to hear from them...hopefully good news! I've been reading a lot of books lately, which has been nice. We should be moving into our house in a little over a month!! I can't wait to finally get settled and have our own house! We're heading up to Brohman this weekend with two other couples for a nice relaxing weekend, it'll be nice to get away and hopefully go swimming some. Well, that's about it for now!
