A Squared: Just the Two of Us

Just the Two of Us

I'm a little bummed today.

Not long ago, we realized that with all the craziness of 2011 we never actually asked our landlord if she allowed dogs in our unit when we signed our lease.  Last summer wedding planning was our main focus and Alex's employment status was in limbo, so getting a dog was the least of our concerns.  Alex has found himself a great new job and now that the wedding is over and I am done with my charity fundraising position I have been craving a new project and-- dare I say it-- I am getting a little bored!  I'm someone who always need a project-- a party to plan, a room to decorate, a file to organize, a trip to prepare for... and lately life has been very quiet.  Especially after how hectic 2011 was for us. 

It's going to be a while until we are able to buy a house and an even longer while until we think about a baby and we've talked about getting a puppy for almost as long as we have been together.  This seems like the perfect time to expand our family with a four-legged friend, right?  I made the mistake of getting my hopes up.  Really up.  Like picking out names and researching breeders, up.  And then our landlord finally let us down gently this morning.  So, it looks like it will still be just the two of us for a while.  Time to plan another trip, I suppose...
 
If we had been able to get a puppy, it would have been a Golden Retriever like my old dog Duke.  He and Alex were fast friends:



And I had already picked this out for her (we had decided that it was going to be a her) for our living room:



Grown up problems.
