Introducing Dega

Here is my puppy, Dega...

Update in the Life of Tia

On the 19th, I slipped at work and tore up my knee. There was a big freak out about whether or not I could even go to Charlotte the next day, but I did. It was a blast if not a struggle with the full leg brace and crutches, but I had a blast. It was so nice to get to spend a week with Eric. It was my first time to a race EVER, and we went to three. I'd say that the Nationwide race was my favorite cause of how close Eric and I got to be even if Busch won. (Boo!) The drive was great home though. We had a lot of fun, and I can't wait to get to do something like that with him again.

Then, I was home again. Work was decent all week. I'm doing a lot of different stuff cause I can't go to my office with the crutches. So, it's just a matter of trying to stay busy.

So, the only big news left is that I have decided to finally get a Maltese puppy, and Eric and I kicked around names. He liked Hunter, and I like Truman. I won, but the more I said Truman or even Tru, I just didn't like it. So, last night, we decided to name him Dega. It's short for Talladega. We were leaning on Bristol, but this seems like a good one. We'll find out if the puppy likes it when I pick him up tomorrow. :glee:

Crash Course in Tia

Okay... So, for those of you who do not know, I'm Tia. Actually, my name is Tanya Michelle, but Tia started in high school and stuck. I'm 29 and dating a great guy. I'm a Navy Veteran. I'm Irish and have Native American roots. I have gorgeous green eyes, and I'm stubborn. My mom calls me a snob and tells me that I'm articulate. I love love love to laugh, and I have a sarcastic sense of humor. I just moved to Indiana, and I work in Illinois as a Receiving Supervisor. I'm a total yarn snob but only for me. You should knit with what you love. Fall is my favorite season. I believe in God, but I'm still human. I am growing out my hair which is getting looooooooooooong, but I am an emotional hair cutter. I like to be happy and optimistic. I'm outgoing. I smile ALL the time. I love the Cincinnati Reds and Dale Jr. NASCAR rocks! I can play the cello, love art and history, dancing and almost anything outdoors. I could go on FOREVER, but I'll stop for now.

In the new house...

So, I have moved. I'm living in Indiana now... Merrillville to be exact. The couch is in storage, but I'm hoping the weather will clear long enough for me to take care of that. Other than that, I'm enjoying setting up the new place. It's exhausting, but it is nice to be living on my own again. :)
