I don't know what to say

I feel like I need to blog but yet I feel I have nothing to say. So I am going to force myself into telling you a few thought.

1. No one was meant to live in Phoenix in the summer. Today hit 116, yesterday was 112, this is too hot for humans and it is miserable.

2. When you have two jobs, cleaning the apt goes out the window. Therefore with Ez out of town my apt looks like squatters have taken over. Bottom line, I need a Zoila, and if you don't know what that is, check this out.

3. I have decided that I want to learn to make homemade doughnuts. First off I love doughnuts and second everything is better homemade, ergo homemade doughnut could possible be life changing. I also want to get an ice cream maker for the same reason. Life changing deserts for a girl who loves sugar, nothing could be better.

4. My last thought ends on a sad note, Karl has taken his first shoe victim. It was a wooden sole platform heel perfect for summer and very cute. He chewed the heel to a horrible state and there is no hope for saving it. I am sorry to see the shoe in this state although I have to admit they were horribly uncomfortable, so Karl could have done worse.

Back to school

Its back to school time, not for me but for sweet Karl. Ez and I have signed him up for obedience classes and last Wednesday was his first. Karl is not the worst in the class but he is also not the best.

It is so funny to see how all the dogs interact. There is this Rottweiler puppy in the class that Karl was having a great time playing with because they were about the same size, unfortunately for Karl, I don't think the playing will be as fun when that puppy grows to be about 5 times his size. There is also this Pug that is so funny and neurotic. He would bark at Karl then go hide behind his owner and just look at him.

I think this training is going to be a very good thing and seeing how some of those other dogs act makes me appreciate how good Karl is. Even if he does chew off all the buttons on everything within reach(sweaters, jackets, etc.).

Hopefully by the end of the six weeks we will have whipped him into shape (figuratively not literally).

Oh and thought would add this cat+school picture for good measure.

Lake Powell

This last weekend, Eric and I went to Lake Powell. We met up with Dev, Beck, Abbey and some family friends and spent the weekend wake boarding, tubing and swimming. It was such a great weekend. Lake Powell is one of my favorite places in the world so to be able to meet up with some of my fam and go there was about the best weekend you could ask for.

Also Eric and I went and saw Crazy, Stupid Love and I crazy stupid loved it. This is coming from someone who, in general, hates romantic comedy's so you can trust me. If you are a Ryan Gosling fan you will especially love it. RG has literally NEVER looked better, better than The Notebook, better than Breaker High(and if you are a real RG fan you will know what that is).
