Five Days and Counting

In five days, I will be bringing home one of these puppies.

I remember when I was pregnant with twins, and I wished I could store up sleep to cash in once the babies were born. (In case you're wondering, that doesn't work.) When the babies were about a month old, I was so exhausted that I actually fell asleep at the dinner table.

I feel sort of the same way now. I wish I could store up this calm, quiet feeling in our home, this freedom to be gone all day, to not worry about a puppy chewing or peeing or pooping on something important.

But on the other hand, I'm getting a dog!!! Yippee!

If we choose the male, the black one, we're naming him Ozzy (after Ozzy from Survivor, one of our family's favorite shows). But if we choose the female, the brown one, we don't know what we will call her! Any suggestions?

How about Jemma!

So funny, but that name hasn't even crossed our minds! Duh. I was actually thinking today of Zoey Maloney, but I heard you shouldn't name your dog a name that sounds like the word no. But Jemma... that's a great idea! We were also thinking of Summer as a way to keep the summer joy with us all year long. Hmmm....

Scratch that. I've been informed by Faith and Sammy it is conceited to name a pet after one of your own characters. :-)
