Life Funk

I guess you could just say that I'm in a serious funk right now. I'm pretty sure that the blogging funk is a result of my life funk. I think I'm starting to figure out what's going on and maybe seeing some hope in how to break free. As you know, I'm a stay-at-home. I've been really struggling lately with keeping my house clean and not feeling darn-right-overwhelmed when I'm home. I think I've figured out that it's our dog that is putting me over the top. She's a great dog, don't get me wrong, I just feel like it's just too much right now. 1) she leave hair EVERYWHERE. I could sweep every day and sweep up an entire dust pan full of hair. When having a baby, it's just no fun. 2) she has a lot of energy and can't be trusted outside because she digs and barks terrible. So, she tries to get her energy out in the house, and when having a baby, that is no fun. 3) she randomly barks in the house and therefore wakes up the baby.

I think that all in all, she's a great dog and really just needs more attention and training that Kyle or I have to give her right now, unfortunately. She's 2 years old and is just still too much of a puppy. I really can't imagine that we'd do when we have a second child. So, right now, we're praying about finding her a new home. It's hard to think about saying good-bye to a family member, but for my sanity and the peace of my home I believe this might be the best option. I'll keep you posted on the final decision.
