I was very drawn to this Anne Klein dress because of its extra flare, as well as the fun "confetti" design and pastel color scheme. It just seemed like a great way to celebrate the arrival of Spring. Despite the pollen, I am enjoying seeing all the greenery around me come to life. Every day seems so beautiful.

If I look extra tired today, it's because our house alarm woke us up around 2 a.m. Our power had gone out at some point during the night due to a bad storm, and the back-up battery for the alarm started failing. As a result, the alarm just started going off as if someone was breaking in. Fortunately, that wasn't the case, but it had us out of bed and scrambling for a solution for at least 30 minutes. And Norman and Wally were also very rattled by the noise. What a night!

Speaking of those two rascals, they are still fighting, and Chapin and I are trying to work harder on their training to help curb the ever present tension. The last few days, since an incident the other night when Norman almost took poor Wally's ear off, we have been keeping them separated. It's been extremely stressful, but we are committed to doing right by both dogs. I don't think they will every be friends, though, which is so sad! Why can't we all just get along?
