I want to let all my readers why I have not been posting recently.
On Thursday morning my great dog Jax pass away suddenly from what we now believe may have been a brain tumor. He was only 6 years old and full of life. Aaron and I miss him so much it hurts, as do all the people who knew him well.
He loved playing catch me if you can, so agile that none of us people could catch him. He loved chasing squirrels along the fence in our back yard, even if he never catch them. He had a big bark but, would never hurt a fly. He was always the center of attention and always willing to break dance on the floor to entertain everyone. There are too many things that Jax loved about life and that we loved about him to list.
All I have to say is that we will always love him and miss him forever.
I'm currently undertaking a personal challenge that I'm writing about on this blog. I just read "Julie & Julia" by Julie Powell and got inspired. My challenge is based on housekeeping instead of cooking, since my housekeeping skills are less than stellar.
I'm following Martha Stewart's "Homekeeping Handbook" and tackling over 400 topics over the course of this year. My house is not messy, but I always feel as though I have some clutter and can never really get the house to look as clean and organized as I would like. I could not think of a better person to learn about all things housekeeping than Martha.
Here's hoping Martha can turn this lazy/corner cutting housekeeper into a more detail oriented and methodical tamer of dirt.
