Crazy rain yesterday, thick fog this morning. At least there's something entertaining me during my morning commute.

Mindy likes the new bed that I bought her last week.

Pardon her evil eyes!

I made lasagna for the first time in years today. And it was good! Go me! :)

You can burrow your nose in the covers, but I can still see you!

Two years ago we learned that we had lost our first baby. A song that meant a lot to me kept coming on the radio in the days and weeks following that terrible day. It's on the radio again today, and we're still trying to keep holding on.

I love this photo frame. It's in our back hall, so I see it as I leave and come home each day. Our friends made it for us and displayed it at our engagement party for everyone to sign. The notes written by family and friends are so special to us. There is even one written by my grandmother and signed "Mary the Great."

Todd entertained me by shaving the goatee he's been sporting to a motorcycle 'stache. I came home to find this:

I cannot believe he let me take a picture. Granted, it's awful of me but hilarious of him! (The things I do for this blog.) Todd made me PROMISE not to put it on my Facebook, and it is not. Please don't tell him you saw this photo. If he finds out, he'll beat me like I'm his motorcycle bitch. :) hahaha

I was so exhausted after a long day that I didn't realize until Todd came home that I put on two different slippers. I was too exhausted to care at that point!

I don't know why my legs look all freckled. They aren't.

I'm good about cooking on Mondays (the rest of the week is not so good), and I made Crash Hot Potatoes with our dinner. This pic reminds me that I need to start digging out my point & shoot since my phone takes sucky photos!

Walking the big dogs is a big job!

Pippin - sit and smile! Never mind. Just ignore the paparazzi!

Stevie sit! Good boy. You so tired from dat walk. Poor baby dog.

Chardonnay, hummus, and garlic chips = yum.

Oh thank Heaven for 7-11. The world would not be complete without Slurpees - especially peach/mango/Coke/cherry/pina colada Slurpees!

"I'm old and tired. Can ya just let me sleep?" Mindy complains.

Wednesday, April 15, 2009


Why I'm so tired after grocery shopping. I buy the whole store, cart it around, and load in the car. Then I go home and have to cook it. Hate it!

Wonder how hard it would be to make these? Probably easier since my pets are cuter than the ones in the frames! ha!

LOVE THIS! What I want to do - or have done - to our cabinetry.

Pippin takes on Sarah as her surrogate mom. They're in love, thick as thieves, gazing lovingly into one another's eyes, resting comfortably with one another.

In a box.
For sale.

Not for me, though.

Unlike her boyfriend, Steve, Pippin is all lady. She even crosses her paws while sleeping.

Steve knows not what modesty is. What a man.

WHY do you people wake me up so early?

Score! Lipstick on sale for only $1 each. Now that's some exciting stuff.

My grandmother's obituary in the paper. Still doesn't seem real.

LAUNDRY. If you avoid it, will it go away?

Friday, April 3, 2009


Todd told me that he has a ghost leaving him love messages. Wonder who that ghost is? :)

My Epilady
Spinning metal coils
Ripping hairs from legs

A little pain now
Ends with small red bumps
Then lovely smoothness
