One of the things I don't regret about how I've gone through school is going home for spring break. Let's face it, I'm broke. I absolutely do not have the money to go to Cancun or Jamaica or Florida for a week. Besides, Doug and I don't normally have the same break, so I don't see a point of going without him. We spend all our vacation cash during the summer so I usually just go to Syracuse for "spring break".
This time I was in for kind of a rude surprise. I left spring in Boston to go back to winter in Syracuse. I drove up 90 into disgusting, crystallized, muddy snow and was really disappointed. I was planning on a week of running in the park with my dog and sitting outside drinking beer. 55-60 degrees F is my comfort zone for outside in the spring.
Instead I'm stuck inside with 38deg freezing rain and mud. It's really nasty and not really a mood lifter. On top of that, being stuck at home with no friends and my siblings at school has been really boring. I have had fun taking my baby out for a walk. It's really nice to get some fresh air and seeing him so happy makes me smile so much. I really miss Chip when I'm in Boston so I've been spending as much time with him as I can.
He took every opportunity to run through the mud and creek and puddles until he was a brown mess, but it was so worth it.
|He's such a good boy!|
What an adorable puffball! I love him to death. It's like I tell Doug, the only reason we get married is because dogs don't stay in our lives nearly long enough. Who wouldn't want to be with this guy forever? So lovable!
