I miss her today

It's hard to believe its been one year today. I miss my friend.

To live in hearts we left behind is not to die.

Does this really need a title?

Here is something I have discovered about myself. If I have more than two things to do at the same time, it's too much. This morning, before I left for work, I was supposed to move the clothes from the washer to the dryer, take chicken out for dinner, refill the dogs water bowl, and grab my Spanish textbook so I could do homework during lunch. Well I refilled the dogs water bowl and moved the clothes over. I'm looking at this like I got 50% of my work accomplished, win-win.

Here is something new, things that irritate me (I'm being sarcastic for those of you who don't know me):

You don't need to stop your car before going over a speed bump. Unless you are driving a tin can, it can pretty much withstand the impact of a speed bump if you simply slow down a little.

You also don't need to stop when you are turning in to a parking lot. You just need to slow down. You see the gas pedal propels you forward and to get in to the parking lot, you must go forward.

Having a service that comes to my office or home if I am sick has completely spoiled me when it comes to actually having to go a doctors office. Even sitting in the dentist office waiting for my cleaning makes me impatient and I find myself thinking "White Glove doesn't keep me waiting, why can't they clean my teeth too?".

People who don't like dogs or animals in general. You don't need to generalize all dogs in to one category. Would you do that with people too? You don't have to love them but you do need to realize I do so let me have my moment.

Speaking of dogs, here is my beautiful Kona. Isn't he a precious, fat little dachound? Thanks for letting me have my moment. :-)

Is it strange...

that I enjoy taking pictures tombstones and such at cemeteries? Is it really? There is something peaceful and beautiful about being at a cemetery, I find it comforting and I find the old tombstones and statues quite lovely. Mi esposo does not think its weird and comes with me. These are the pictures I took at a little cemetery not far from my home that I have seen for years but never been to before. The angels were beautiful and you just don't see headstones like this anymore. I take pictures of other things too, living things, but I just appreciate that this person was once so loved that someone wanted them to have beautiful things on their grave. That kind of love is almost tragic yet so caring.

This angel got to me, I don't know why but it did. So wonderfully sad and comforting at the same time.

Boob Tube

I just spent half an hour looking up cami covers to cover up the pups because some of my shirts are just too low cut. What the hell is wrong with me when an infomercial about snapping a piece of fabric over my boobs makes me squeal with delight? I don't even know who I am anymore.

Looking up at the trees in my backyard

This morning I was sitting out on my lanai, enjoying a cup of coffee. It was a beautiful cool morning and my dogs were chasing each other around the back yard. I took a moment to be thankful for the good things in my life and the fact that I we are leaving for Hawaii first thing tomorrow morning. I will miss Max and Kona like crazy, so I spent as much time with them today as I could.

I will miss this little fuzz face and his anxiety ridden self. Max, my big boy.

I will miss my spacey little chubster and his care free attitude. Kona, my short little nugget.

My favorite wind chimes that really do bring me peace when I sit out there.

I like to think the wind chime angel watches over my dogs when they are playing.

I hope there are more happy and sunshine filled days ahead. Off to see my ohana and see the ocean again!

Happy Travels,

I ruff you

Is it weird that every morning when I leave, I tell my dogs that I love them and to have a good day? I know they are not people but I feel compelled to acknowledge that I am leaving them for a few hours. Maybe I have gone over the edge like the crazy cat ladies with 17 cats.

What an asshole! This is my favorite picture in the world. My dogs ass. I'd rather look at this than most people anyway. Maybe this means I need a vacation?

Boobs Vs. Belly

When my belly sticks out more than my boobs and I am not pregnant, it may be time to go on a diet.

2011 is here and I am happy to see it. I had some major bumps in the road in 2010 so I'm thinking it can only get better, right? Man, I hope so. Big Red and I actually stayed up until 2 a.m. and that is crazy for me. I have decided that in 2011, I am going to focus on my family and school more than anything else. My priorities have been out of whack lately and I need to fix that. Next week I am flying out to see my parents and I intend to spend every moment of it being thankful that they have made it to their 50th wedding anniversary. This is becoming so rare nowadays, people give up too easily on relationships.
