Blog is pretty much mute

sorry haven't posted in ever. don't get paid anymore for posts. - get some emails with poeple saying they want to do sponsored posts. reply back to them yes great would like to do a sponsored post, tell them  price and go back and forth. next thing you know they never send post or money and you never hear from them again. really sick of  doing that and don't have time for that if it doesn't go anywhere.

so don't really feel like just posting personal updates not knowing if anyone really cares. sorry don't mean to be negative but pretty much giving up on this blog. had a good run but blogging is over lol.

only keeping open so I can review my own back posts and look at old pictures. basically like an archive of last 10 years give or take.

unless something major comes up, like a paid post. I probably won't be posting much on here again.

thanks! if anyone is still out there and cares. also got another new dog back in October, his name is Tucker! we love him! never been a dog person and now I have 2 :)
