New Website and Etsy Store Lauch- AND A GIVEAWAY!

Hands on. Pants off. The new website.
CrashandBurnGraphics. The new Etsy shop.

Both of these are a labor of love for the past few months and I am so very excited to present both of them to you.  While you are perusing the new website, be sure to click on all the new buttons and gadgetry.
Not to brag, but I learned a lot in the process regarding coding and pretty-fying your blog (and don't worry, there will be another giveaway for blog design coming soon).

What's on the horizon (think free shit)

Let's call this a soft opening. It's soft because I haven't spent enough time to get this blog where it needs to be just yet and I'm too excited not to tell you all what is going on.

We'll have the hard opening April 1. (that's what she said)
How hard will it be?
You will want to stick around. I am giving away some fantastic shit.

Getting closer !

Can I just pat myself on the back for a hot second? I mean, have you LOOKED at this new blog?
Don't get me wrong, I still have to work out some kinks and fill in some info, but I am so very close to the new launch April 1.
I hope you are impressed.
This shit has been hard (twss) but totally worth it.

And guess what?

Work- Ready in 15 minutes

Someone's got a case of the Monday's.
Does anyone else get super exhausted for the first couple of days of Ye Old Monthly Hag?
I sure do.
I have been trying to combat the tireds and bloats by making a point to work out every day.
Today was no exception.

I made it!

The sun is shining!
We are wrapping up the terrible audit week.
I spent far too many hours in this office, scanned far too many documents, and explained our software structure far too many times to the same people.
Over and over and over again.

But we did it. Today's the last day.

I get to go back to a normal schedule!
I get to sleep in past 5am!

So how did I do?

Plan for the week

Popping in here to give you a run down of my upcoming week.
It's going to be a shit storm.
I won't be back til it's over.
Here's why.

Frugal Friday: Motion with the Lotion

Let's talk about lotion.
Pronounced LOHzun in our household, and at work for some reason..
So I buy the Jergens.
I LIVE by the Jergens.
I LOVE the Jergens.

But my Jergens bottles don't love me back like they should.
So I cut them.

The neighbors

I get a call from Bayou at 4pm today, 20 minutes before I leave for the day.
Something horrible happened.
My blood pressure immediately skyrockets as I imagine one of dogs is hurt.
ha, oh...oh Yea. They are fine.

Long dramatic pause.....

I can't do it all

As funny and as witty as some people think I am in my daily life, it's not something I can keep pace with 7 days a week.
I have lots of expendable energy.
I liven a room, create funny conversation, lighten a mood, lift people up.
I get up early, do all the things, each and every day.
I go.
I don't find excuses. I find answers. I solve problems. I make shit happen.
I strive to excel at everything, even when the days blend together and it seems like it is all too much, I keep going.
But finding balance is key.
And as a 30 year old adult, you would think by now I would know this by now.

Updates: Boot Camp & life in general

He's home.

The training facility allowed us to pick him up last night, but not before a training session for the parents.
I went alone while Bayou dealt with a major drainage problem in our main shower.
More on that in a bit.

Boot Camp.
Man....I don't know what I had expected the outcome to be.
I guess part of me figured that to submerge a dog into a facility with five trainers and nothing but rehabilitation and obedience guidance, not to mention a boat load of money, he would have learned a few things.
You to be less psycho.
