I could totally go for a Nathan's hot dog, crinkle fries and an ice cold beer right about now.
This morning we rallied the troops and headed off for the DMV to get my NCDL renewed, reissued.. whatever. There was a rumor that I would have to take the written test again to get it back.. but thankfully that turned out to be false. I couldn't even watch as the guy took my NYDL away. The last vestige of my being a pseudo (read fake) New Yorker. I am not too proud to admit that I loved breakin' that puppy out when called for. Plus, the NY licenses are so much better. They are this really super bendable plastic, not the brittle hard plastic that NC uses. Oh well.. it's over now. No one will know that I used to live in Brooklyn unless I choose to tell them. Now I can just sit back and wait for my southern accent to kick back in. Sigh.
Stephen and I were loving on Oliver last night when we made a sort of admission to each other. See.. we love this dog. Can't really describe exactly how much we love this dog. We snuggle him, and talk to him, and play with him and give him kisses all day. It's a little overkill most likely but we are super attached to him. We have raised him from a tiny little puppy. He depends on us and loves us unconditionally. We love everything about him and he can rarely do any wrong in our eyes. He is our precious, lovable, adorable little man. So.... we have been told over and over that we can't even imagine how much we are going to love these girls once they get here. Well, apparently we really can't imagine it. I have tried and I can't wrap my head around it. It's like this concept that I know about but don't really understand. Last night I said to Stephen "Can you imagine that we are going to love the girls more than we love Oliver?" He laughed and admitted that he could not imagine it either. How silly is that? We had to laugh. How insane are we that we can't imagine loving any little living thing more than we love our dog?!?!? But that is just the honest truth. We both then agreed that we are really excited about experiencing this new love that we will feel for our little girls. We have no idea what it's going to feel like but we can't wait to experience it.
