Thank You for 10k on Instagram!

First off, thank you so much to everyone who has followed us on Instagram.

We have reached the milestone of 10,000 followers this week.

(Until you guys realize how much we suck and then un-follow us....)

It's amazing and I never thought it could happen.

(Also, see the right hand side menu for our Instagram feed.)

It feels good to have some success in life, but this kind of highlights 
how much I have been ignoring this blog lately.

Which I haven't done on purpose.

But it has just naturally happened because 
I spend a lot of my time now taking care of the dog.

Speaking of the may have noticed the 
most recent pic in my Instagram feed...

(Goodbye glasses - I both loved you and hated you.)

Yes, Harold (the dog) stepped on my glasses and they snapped in half.

I tried taping them, but they wouldn't stay together.

"Me? I didn't break nuttin! Those glasses snapped on their own!"

I needed to get new glasses anyways, but I don't have any spares - so right now I am mostly blind and this computer is about 3 inches from my face. And the font size is like at 250%.

It's very difficult to use the computer when you are mostly blind.

So I will have to get new glasses - with all of that free time that I have. Derp.

So yes - a lot of my time is taken up by the dog right now - he is very energetic and probably a lot younger than the foster people thought he was. 

They said 4-5.
But it's probably more like 2-3.

As Harold adjusts to his new home his true personality is coming out more and more -- and he is kinda a whiny pain the butt. (Like most dogs.)

So he needs to be walked a lot (about 4-5 hours a day) - and he will need to be trained. So we are looking into a behaviorist now for him (mostly for us really.)

Needless to say, my whining aside, I have thought about the blog A LOT - I just haven't had the time and energy to sit down and write posts. Blergh.

Hopefully once life straightens itself out a bit more 
I will be able to get more free time.

But again, thank you so much for 10k on Instagram.

I really appreciate all of the follows and the likes.
I don't have much else going on in my life right now.
So Instagram really helps me feel like I am accomplishing something.
Even if it is mostly narcissistic, haha.

And once I get new glasses, hopefully I can devote more time to the blog.

But right now, I'm just squinting at the computer like a moron, 
and my eyes are tearing up with strain.

Good luck with your glasses and your new doggie.

I really understand about the dog and time - my daughter and her husband bought a puppy last year but he spends most of his time with us. He's great fun but does use up a lot of time. Fortunately he hasn't stepped on my glasses (probably because I have to wear them all the time) or I would be doing exactly what you are doing. Hope you get new glasses soon
