I just signed up with Mint.com, and so far I’m pretty interested. I’m also slightly annoyed, since I’m having issues linking my bank/loan/credit card accounts to my Mint account. I know I’m entering all the correct login information, since the individual sites are letting me in, but Mint’s telling me the login information is incorrect.
At any rate, once I have all my dang accounts set up and the categories set, I’ll be able to really see where my money’s going, which is something I have trouble with. I’m really looking forward to seeing how it all works out!
In other news, the BF and I have made a change to our dog wishes. We have talked about adopting a Boxer for years now, but unfortunately our landlord included a “no dogs” clause in our lease. I made a passing comment about adopting a dog to her (yes, I said “landlord,” but she is in fact our “landlady,” which I think sounds stupid), and she said that she might be willing to discuss a small dog at a later date. A Boxer is not a small dog. So we wait.
Our Boxer’s name will be Tessie, for the Dropkick Murphy’s song about the Red Sox (and it sounds really cute) and we’ve read a lot already on proper care and handling of Boxers. And we’re both into making sure our dogs will be well-trained. And anti-ear-cropping. We’d love to have the classic fawn-colored Boxer, but we’ll see how it goes. How can you not love a face like that?
I’ve recently become a fan of Bernese Mountain Dogs as well. I think they’re so cuddly-looking and seem like really friendly dogs. I haven’t done much research on them, especially considering the amount that went into Boxers, but that time will come. When we were skiing at Waterville Valley on Sunday, there was a family that had 2 Berneses at the ski race. I thought they were adorable, so I told the BF that we’re also adopting a Bernese and naming him Hans. He liked it, so there you go!
Once we buy our house, we will adopt Tessie, our Boxer. A little while later, we’ll adopt Hans, our Bernese. I’m all about adoption, and you should be, too!
