Exercise is Bad for Your Health

This has been an eventful day. First, we've been having problems with house flies. They're freaking everywhere. So, I've been spraying the crap out of my house with bug spray lately. We're probably going to die of bug spray inhalation, lol. Today, in addition to flies, I also had a wasp get into the house. FYI, Raid Flying Insect spray is excellent.

Also, we decided to move Bailey from the front yard to the back yard and train her to do her business in the fields behind our house. Well, I go to hook her tie out to the back steps and there is the neatest (if you're into those things) spider I've ever seen in real life. Here's a picture of it.
If anyone happens to know what kind of spider this is, I'd be interested to know. Leave a comment. Then, after I proceeded to beat at it with a large branch, it ran off and I tied Bailey to the steps. Stupid person that I am, I didn't unlock the back door. So, I unhooked Bailey from her tie out thinking (again, being stupid) that she'd go to the front door to be let in the house. Boy, was I wrong. She took off like a bat out of hell and ran clear down the back of our road 5 houses down. The girls and I chased her down there (M crying the whole way) and then I had to drag her back since she's too heavy to carry very far. I'm telling ya, if she hadn't stopped, she would've been a homeless dog tonight I was so mad.

Now, I'm pooped from chasing the dog and half dragging, half carrying her home, which she's lucky she still has. I'm ready for a nap. But, I have an algebra assignment due today and I decided to make homemade chicken and noodles for dinner. Making noodles is a chore in itself. So, just thought I'd share my day. Here's a couple more pictures of Bailey, The Dog Who Lived.

This first picture is the Boxer Smile. She doesn't do that all the time, but it cracks us up when she does. She looks so dopey.
The second picture is Bailey and her friend Buster playing in our front yard. He comes to visit her every so often.

The Wonders of a Blog

I found out yesterday that we missed seeing a friend of ours while we were in Ohio by mere days. HowEVER, if he had kept up with our Blog, he would have known when we were going to be there and we could have planned accordingly. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!! Cedar Point is much more fun when you go with a group of people, moron.

Anyway, you can definitely tell summer is almost over in Vermont. It got down to 46 last night. We went to bed with the windows open and we froze our tushes off. I'm sure the leaves will start changing anytime now. It's almost 11 am and still only 57 outside right now. BRRRR! I can do without the snow, but we're looking forward to seeing how Bailey does this winter. She doesn't even like to go outside when it's raining, lol. The other day, C was going to let her outside and she took one look and saw that it was raining and peed on the floor right in front of the door. So much for Boxers being a vicious breed of dog. The only people that would think that are people that have never actually been around one.

Well, time again to hit the books. Laters.
