I have not updated this in a while so I thought it was about time. I should be studying for my college algebra test but I got a little bored. All is well here in Florence and the rain we have been getting the past couple weeks has been wonderful. Well maybe not so wonderful on our dirt road but other than that is has been great. I have 2 flower gardens and a Kramer's Camellia tree which is the most beautiful tree in the world. I cant wait til it matures. My orange tree turned out to be lemons. They are orange in color but on the inside they are straight up lemons. Totally weird. There is more grass growing around our property than in my fenced yard where I planted grass. Depressing. Oh well. Got to hit the books.

Learning something new

We recently got a Jack Russell puppy who is now 12 1/2 weeks old. Her name is Kippy. She is a complete handful, but she is the cutest thing in the whole world. She looks at me so cute, now I really understand the term "puppy dog eyes". I am trying to house break her and so far I am unsuccessful. We have had her for 2 weeks now. Yesterday I finally broke down and decided to crate train her. I didn't want to have to do it that way cause I wanted to have her out with me in the house. Since I couldn't keep my eye on her at all times she would have some accidents. I would have to take her out to go potty about every hour to 2 hours. Now that she is in the crate I take her out every few hours and I am free to do things around the house without the stress of keeping my eye on her. I don't know why I didn't do that sooner.
She is so much fun to play with and has so much energy. When she is done playing she has to take a nap and she is so adorable when she sleeps. She dreams alot so her legs twitch like she is running, she growls, she acts like she is sucking, and sometimes she will bark. It is hilarious. She is a quiet dog and doesn't bark much but when she does I cant help but laugh. She thinks she is so tuff but her bark is so high pitch and cute.
Her favorite toy happens to be a cat toy. JD told me not to get it because "it a cats toy". The toy is one of those things that have a furry toy attached to a string and a handle. Oh and it has a bell on it too. She goes crazy when I pick it up.
