I love having days off. Nothing like staying home and stressing out about stuff I can't change. We still haven't found a place to live, and are supposed to be out by the end of the month. We might have found a studio apartment to rent in the condo community I adore... It'd be perfect for us to see if we'd actually like to live there for an extended period of time. We're going to check it out right after work tomorrow. Hopefully I'll know by the end of the week if we get it.

Sad news: A few weeks back one of my tadpoles died. I was so devastated I refused to even acknowledge the incident by posting about it. I know it's just one of those things froggers have to get used to- they're such tiny and delicate creatures, it's a miracle humans can keep them alive at all. The good news is that the gentleman who donated the tads forgives me, and has even encouraged me to take another one so I can figure it out before my vents start breeding. I don't know how I feel about it... I'd much rather buy a froglet than watch another tadpole die. Yet at the same time I'm so in love with the one that's left- It would be truly amazing to watch the process again.

So here's Finley and his newly acquired limbs:

And in other news, I'm back on the diet train. I know it's so cliche to make a resolution to lose weight. The thing is, it's the Year of the Boar! Come on now, you can't ignore such blatent irony!

Hope all of you are having a fantastic year thus far!


  1. Those yellow lips make me snicker to myself each time I look at them...

  2. aren't they ridiculous?! He's starting to get a bright yellow spot on his chin too. I can't wait to see how his colors change in the next few weeks!
