A Piggy Puggle Muddle

Hi Everyone! How have you been enjoying my featured teachers/guest bloggers and all their freebies? Anyone miss me?

I am so happy that I set this up as this week as it has been a whirl-wind of week! I procrastinated on my homework and will NOT do that again. I decided I would have enough time after my job interview to do it. And I would have if I didn't get the job.

Which is AWESOME! 
or EPIC! 

Instead of waiting for 12/13 school year, I was hired to start substituting immediately as in Friday the 13. They created a special orientation class just for me which is why I wrote the worst paper ever as I had to read 200 pages on how to be a sub and fill out 57 pages by the next morning. I did it and wrote a 1500 word paper.

Same day my taxes came in but only about half of what it was suppose to be. At this point, I am just grateful for anything. We immediate went and bought the rental car we have had for the past two months. Well... immediately after I found out I got the job. So we are once again a one car family again. YIPPEE!

Which brings me to the piggy puggle muddle. What on earth am I talking about?? 

Have I told you all how much I adore my husband and how spoiled I am? If not, I am gonna share with you another story. My birthday is in May and my hubby's in June. I have this problem every June that my husband spent so much money on me during the month of May that there is nothing left to celebrate him with. I have asked him to stop but he ignores me. 

It's like when I asked for a smaller engagement ring, he said I can have that size of a diamond or a bigger one but not smaller. I kept it as he knew I would. At that set the precedent for our relationship. I never get a chance to spoil him. 

So... I decided that this year... I WOULD WIN! My husband loves animals. We both do and so wish we could move back home and live on the ranch. Someday...

Anywho... the only way to actually do something for him was to do it prior to May and when he wasn't expecting it. So after orientation yesterday, I drove 200 miles to get him this.... 

His first dog was a pug but I couldn't afford a Pug. So I bought a Puggle! (Did anyone notice she matches? Black dog, red collar... anyone still in doubt about my OCD? She can shed and it will blend into the house!) She is 7 weeks old and 6 inches tall (the boys measured her with a ruler). That is a cat collar and its big on her. LOL!

After picking her up (and wondering where the 3AM Teacher lives as I know I drove past her house), we went shopping. She found herself a bed and went to sleep in the car. She loves her bed and crawls into and sleeps. Even in the car or the bathtub (where she sleeps until I go and pick up her crate).

So after all of that, I went to pick up my brother in law (he carpools everyday with hubby) who fell in love with her (his first dog was the same pug as hubby's. duh! They are brothers... didn't think of that at the time and thought it was weird she reminded him of his first dog as well. In my defense, I had driven 300 miles by this point and was tired!).

And then we went to go get hubby. He called and wanted to know what I spent all the money on... ummmm... gas and groceries? He would find out in about 10 minutes. The kids already spoiled the surprise and hubby had called to check on them and they were complaining they had to clean the house before Mama brought home a puppy. Bad children!

Hubby brought friends to show off his new puppy when he got off of work. He was so excited... I was wondering why there was a group trailing him (didn't know the secret was given away yet!). Then he asked how I managed to get a dog for so cheap (I drove half-way to California!) and when were we taking her shopping. 

Then I told him ummmm... already done! See... Pup and puppy package. She even went to the vet and got her first shots. I am awesome and through!

When I picked her up the first time and snorted at me like a baby piggy. So I called her Miss Piggy all the way home. I wanted to let hubby name her but the name stuck like crazy glue. So she is a Miss Piggy Puggle.

Which brings us to the muddle part. I just took a job and will no longer be home all the time to train her. The boys can't do it but she does seem to be house broken (no accidents yet!).

So... I am off to get my homework done first! Anyone know someone who learned English as a second language that I can interview by email? I don't know anyone and it is my assignment this week. 

Then... 3-6 catch-up, TpT uploads, freebies, and possibly a sub kit! We shall see.  Next week.. I have more featured teachers/guest bloggers to share with you. Can't wait!

First, congrats on the job! You'll be awesome! Second, Miss Piggy Puggle is sooooo cute! I love her! Third, do you still need someone who learned English as their second language? If so, send me the questions via email and I'll get you the answers back tomorrow. Would you prefer a kid or an adult? I have both in my building.
