Hampton Monroe and I had a serious talk yesterday.  He was feeling a little discouraged.

I told him that he's still young and if he works really really hard and never stops dreaming... someday he'll be able to dance like Daddy.  I keep telling him the secret  is to move his shoulders more. Unfortunately coordination was not one of the skills he was born with.  He takes after his Mummy (Grace).

I missed watching the Grammy's last night! However twitter was all the buzz with the latest updates so in a way I feel like I kind of saw it. I heard it was actually one of the best Grammy's in a loooong time. Darn! Oh well! I'll have to go check out who was best / worst dressed online after I write this. I hope Rachel Zoe's clients all 'shut it down' :) BTW is her show coming back on for another season? I wonder what happened or is happening with Tay...but I digress.

So I guess you can say I am now addicted to Twitter. I actually signed up when it first came out but didn't go on it much. But now I can't help myself. I'm a bit scared tho of where this puts me in terms of the behavioral disorders I might have LOL!

D and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary today. We first started dating 10 years ago today! Amazing how fast time goes by. We went out for a nice dinner and then for desert. My tummy is very very round and bloated right now but also very happy :)

We also finally launched our new puppy jones website! Yahoo!  I couldn't have asked for a better anniversary present. D timed it so that it would launch on the same day. Yes he's very sweet. I've been wanting this new site for a long while now and he's basically behind pulling it all together and the look and feel of it. We still have to finish up a few of the other pages which we're working on but I'm pretty happy with what we have so far. I really just wanted a space for all things related to the bb's and its nice to be able to have the blogs all integrated into one site. Thanks D!! xoxo

2010 has been great so far. Its been very different lifestyle wise. I went from working 6 days a week to actually having spare time to sleep, watch tv, cuddles and QT with the puppies and work on the new puppy jones web site! It feels good but also makes me a bit ansy. But in general I'm excited about 2010.

A few years ago we stopped doing the traditional new year's resolutions and instead decided to create a 'theme' each year with the intent that each new theme would bring related experiences. These are a few examples of themes we've had over the years: 'just do it',  'feel the fear and do it anyway', 'situation critical'....This year its 'we're living the dream'. Let's see what that will bring :)

hampton monroe - a control freak

I've never had a dog that was soooo into his routine. If he is off his schedule he goes crazy. Without his routine he gets very uncomfortable, whiney, paws at me, starts chewing whatever he can get his mouth on and rings his bell constantly (we trained him to ring the bell when he has to pee but uses it for other communication purposes). What a control freak! Here are a few examples:

- Since Hampton joined our family a year ago he has not let me sleep in past 7am. By the
  way I am not a morning person.

- He must must must have his breakfast at 6am and dinner at 6pm.

- He must go for his walks at the same time each day and after his walks he picks up one of
  his favourite toys and runs up and down the hall way with it non-stop for 5 to 10 minutes.

- After dinner he must have quality time with mummy on the couch (which 50% of the time
  includes mummy holding one end of a chew toy while he chews the other end).

- Just recently I discovered he has a favourite blanket which he must nap with. He refuses to
  cuddle and nap with any other. Btw his naps are very important especially when I am
  working from home so I can have some peace.

Again, what a control freak!  But a very cute one so I can't help but enable his behavior.  LOL! As I write this he is ringing his 'bell' alerting me to the fact that its almost 6pm - dinner time. He's so silly!!

    a 'visit' from 'starbuck'

    In the middle of the night I was gently woken up by a wet nose on my toes. At first I thought I was dreaming. Then I turned on my night light and there was "Starbuck" by the side of my bed. I screamed! Daddy was not impressed. It turned out "Starbuck" was actually little Ham. He somehow broke through the baby gate we have up on our bedroom doorway and was trying to get into bed to have a snuggle with me. I'm just not used to seeing Hampton in our room. Starbuck's bed was right beside me so Hampton really caught me off guard. The little bugger! It is amazing though how much Hampton does remind us of Sb sometimes. Still missing Sb lots. xoxo.
