This is us. Me, Nic, Moxie, and Sup. (Sally and Hobbes, our two cats, couldn't be bothered to come to a photo shoot in the snow.) So that's it--that's our family. In a world where everyone and their dog, literally, has their own blog, I guess you could say that me and my dogs are joining the ranks. I've been hesitant at first, I mean the rest of the blogs I see are spattered with pictures of two-year-olds and baby bumps. Not this blog though. Nope. My mothering skills extend only as far as the leash. And since I don't send cards and Nic says my phone answering percentage is currently 33 percent, I'm hoping this will at least make me feel a little bit better--like I'm somehow keeping up with family and friends. Lame excuse? Yes it is.
