Now don’t be jealous…
I get to do this and then grocery shop then go to work!! But its asl worth it, getting these things out of the way will allow us to enjoy the dave and tim concert tomorrow night!

the real reason…

that I am not a fan of Day Light Savings…

 

The amount of traffic has quadrupled since the time change. I actually had to wait on the highway. Why is this? I leave at the same time, I take the same route, I have the same playlist. And let me just add I was just getting to the really moving part of the song when *SMACK* traffic jam. For no reason other than the time has changed…

I saw this over at Erins, and she borrowed it from someone else. I thought it was brillant! So would you still be my friend if I admitted…

*that I blare Brittney Spears music on my way home, follwed by Korn and Limp Biskit?

*that I cannot stand spaghetti?

*that I have never seen Friday Night Lights, or Gilmore Girls (well maybe an episode of the last one)

*that I have no desire to read the Twilight series

*that I cry when I read about horses being hurt/put down/mistreated like a baby

*that I used to always want a “my dog is smarter than your honor roll student” bumper sticker, until Nick became an honor roll student and that I now have an honor roll student bumper sticker

*that I would rather stay home and shop online then go to the stores

*that it drives me nuts when I see high school girls all wearing the exact. same. thing.

*that I love my knee high socks with crazy patterns and colors, but have no real style to speak of

How about you? Anything out there that seems like everyone raves about but you feel more “meh” about?

its Ten Again!!

Tuesday here and its the middle of the month. Next week we will be eating turkey with family and friends and passing out in tryptophan induced comas! Thanks to Chelsea for hosting once again…

1. What are your pantry staples?- I like to think I have a stocked pantry, so at any time I can just whip something up with what is the pantry and become a domestic goddess. Truth is we don’t really even have a pantry and what is in there is not a staple by any means. We always seem to have tuna and oatmeal and peanut butter, but domestic goddesses don’t whip up gourmet dishes with those ingredients…

2. What are your refrigerator staples?- milk, three or four gallons a week…

3. You already look like Heidi Klum (or your favorite supermodel). Now, what are the top three non-physical things you would change about yourself?- be less of a procrastinator, be more organized and be a better person…

4. What’s holding you back from your dream job? (If you already have your dream job, how did you get there?)- I have the education I just need the experience… working on that right now…

5. You have $500 to spend but it has to be on one item only. Go.- hum…frivolus? ipad…practical? new brakes…

6. What is something that you are embarrassed to admit you buy on a regular basis?- Britney Spears songs on the ipod…

7. What’s in/on your bed every night?- down comforter and my husband 🙂

8. What is a non-necessity item that, no matter how expensive it gets or how tight your budget if, you will always find room for it?-fancy coffee drinks…

9. What is the weirdest sandwich you’ve ever made?- I used to work at a sandwich shop and the weirdest combination, that I loved, was oatmeal bread, corn beef and ketchup with a little provolone cheese…

10. Would you rather: Be banned from Pinterest forever, but gain a million captive Twitter followers; or, never get on Facebook again but gain five thousand blog readers?- I would rather be banned from Pinterest, that site is just bad for me…

Happy Tuesday!!

The Grand Plan…

We have a tree outside that turns a brilliant yellow every fall. I decided this year that I was going to take a picture of that tree everyday until the last leaf fell. I started then we had a hurricane and a freak snow-storm. This is what I have to show for it…

there is always next year…

 

healing power…

For my birthday Kevin got me the book “Chosen By A Horse.” I love it. I love everything about the story, the fact it is a memoir, and that it illustrates something I put a lot of stock in.

I am a firm believer in animals being able to heal people. Just like we can heal animals, they can heal us. They teach us to slow down and observe, to really see something or really feel something.

I havent finished the book yet, just a few more chapters. I am at a point that is hard to read, the horse has cancer and the prognosis is bad. But at the same time it is a great part of the story, the horse has overcome so much and so has its caretaker. Which just strengthens my idea that animals can heal people.

I am especially drawn to the story because I see parallels in my own life. Not that a horse has healed me but an animal has. I got Hobbes as a puppy, he was sick and so was I. I nursed him back to health and realized that someone does need me. He has been through so much with me and taught me so much. Now I worry about him, there is a large lump on his side and there are times where he looks at me like he knows there is something wrong.

I will do everything I can do for him, because he has done everything he can do for me…

Happy saturday!
