2. I have a stuffed animal I sleep with every night. He is a Pound Puppy and is 27 years old...his name is Butchy.
3. I am amazing at music trivia. I can usually name a song in the first few seconds.
4. I have broken the same foot/ankle twice and tore ligaments in it twice also.
5. I love 80's movies and can quote them all.

30 Days

I'm wanting to be creative. I don't have some of the paint stuff I need to paint a picture (which I really want to do) so I searched online and found this 30 day photo project. Basically, you take 1 picture a day for 30 days following the guidelines below.  I have to say, I'm kinda excited...probably because I get to play with my new little point and shoot camera. It should be interesting, so make sure you guys come back and check it out. I'll add some other postings just to keep it interesting :)

Sharing is caring

Meet Bear. Bear is a year old mix who was a rescue. He was in a litter of 5 (maybe) and found in a box at the end of my aunt's driveway. I have a huge heart and a way soft spot for all animals (i had 2 pet crayfish for almost 3 years and a pet turtle for at least 5), so I felt it was up to me to find these cute puppies homes. All 5 lived in my bathtub until they were adopted (they all have great homes) and when this guy was an itty bitty, he looked just like a bear. I feel in love....but there was no way I could keep him (i have Biskit who is at mom and dads). I'm now faced with a keep him or not. Well, i did what i knew i needed to do, I gave him E. That's right, Bear's human is E.  So Bear is my first "shared" pet. I've never had one before. I've always had just mine....Lady (my first black lab) and Biskit (my current white lab).
Shared pet....totally new concept for me. I think i'm taking it well. I had to take off work today to take Bear to see Dr. Paul (my wonderful vet) to have a looksy at his foot. He's had this bump on it for a few weeks and then all of a sudden it flared up to be this massive looking gross thing. E freaked! He just "knew" something was wrong. Well, there was something wrong, but not to the extreme. Dr. Paul saw it and said, "Let me guess..." and then went on to say everything I would have told him. Genius! I believe what he told me, the tumor is histiocytoma (i blank out on big words). Basically, the tumor will go away on it's own.

As i sit writing this, Bear is curled up beside me with his "bunny" sleeping away...enjoying the love from his humans!

I know it's not fall yet, but we are going to be having fall-ish weather. I love summer, don't get me wrong, but lately summer has been arriving in April (like 90 degree thanks) and then by August you have already had 30 days of 100 degrees plus. Fall is a welcomed break from sweating. I don't like to sweat as soon as I step outside at there are so many things to look forward to.

The fair is in October (Love A Fair is the theme). I love the fair. I always have. Hopefully E and I can go during the week during the day (night time is so busy and so are the weekends). Plus we have our trip to Cancun (another thing to be super excited for). There are only a couple of more weeks for the flea market at the fair always closes up for a month. I love searching and finding awesome things...

i bought this frog....he was the most perfect thing...and he is cast iron...there is a cart full of cast iron far my favorite at the flea market. The stars are made with old license plates...i wanted to buy one, but when i came back, he was gone....hopefully he will come back. Then you find stuff that you wish you had a place for....

i loved these doors....they were amazing! i had no where to put them and i couldn't hold on to them until i bought my first home, so i had to leave them there....haven't seen them since. Hopefully the person who bought them loves them as much as i do

bad days

so, I had a really bad day yesterday. Super bad. Happened at work, so I am not going to talk about what happened, but just know it was a really bad day. I haven't really had that type of day in a long while. I called my mom after my bad day and told her what happened...I called E and told him what happened....and then I got home and cried a little bit more (yes....I cried at work too...don't judge me...I'm a cryer).

I got to thinking today about all the things that make me happy....and there are a ton of things, so I won't really go into a long list....just highlited few:

1. the beach!

makes me super happy....hate that I have only been once this summer, but things just haven't worked out for me to go...but I do love it there
2. curling up on the bed after a bad day with my stuffed animal....yes I am almost 30 and I still have my stuffed animal from when I was 2 (again, don't judge me) (by the way....this isn't him, but it looks almost like him)

3. E....he makes things funny and tries to get me out of my bad days. We've been through a ton, and I'm glad we made it....

One more thing to take my mind off the bad day......

MEXICO!!!!! We are leaving on October 17 to spend a week in Cancun!!!! So of course, that turns the bad day good!!!
