O.K.  I just realized that it's been 2 months since I posted anything.

Well to catch you up...

1.  I'm doing volunteer work delivering pet food to those that are ill or elderly so they can keep their pets.  I never thought about how one would keep their companion animal if something catastrophic happened. It would kill me to have something horrible happen and on top of it I had to lose my furbabies.

Gut wrenching doesn't even cover it.

So if you want to give or volunteer the Pet Patrol's website here in Houston is

Worthwhile organization.

2.  Volunteering at K9 Angels - I'm walking dogs who are awaiting adoption.

3.  I was touched inappropriately by a masseuse... Yes, I accidentally went to one of "those" massage parlors.  It was traumatic.  Although, it was also freakin funny as hell too!

I mean really, only I would end up, clueless, in one of those places.  Not figuring it out when they asked for cash up front, including tip, when the woman didn't really know how to do a massage, not understanding what she was asking the 4 or 5 times she asked if I needed "special attention".

No, I didn't figure it out until she "touched" me.


4. We went to Miami and the Keys for vacation.


5.  Katie is no longer on Prozac.

6.  The girls are cute and growing.

7. We got new brick steps because the girls were hard on the wood ones.

8.  We got roped into judging a Memorial Day chili cook-off.

It was fun.

9. And this past weekend we saw....


At the alamo draft house

And that about wraps it up.  I'm going to try not to let 2 more months go by without posting.

Vacation is a comin'

FINALLY we have planned our vacation.

We are going to Miami and then Key West...YAY~!

I can't wait.

That's about it for now.

Babies are good.

Job is...well a job.

Hubby is good.

And whiskey is GREAT!

Beach here we come!

Attention span ZERO!

I cannot concentrate today.

Is it because it's Monday?  Because the weekend was too short?  Because I had LOTS of fun and now I'm sitting at a desk feeling my butt get bigger?

Is it because I have little to no human interaction during the day? 

I am a drone...

Work. Work. Work!

I don't know.

I did have a dream last night.

I was in Dubai, on the beach with two other couples and we decided to go back to our respective hotel rooms.

Boring I know.

Maybe my dream is why I'm so bored today?


We go into the hotel the other two couples go to their rooms and I decide to leave to go back to wherever.

So one of the guys walks me to the elevator - not the one we came up on but a different one.

It was HUGE.  Like your living room stuck on the side of the building. 

And the elevator attendant (yes there was one in a red suit with brass buttons no less) closes the drapes because it was one of those elevators with windows instead of walls.

And he pushed the down button.

AND the elevator WAS REALLY FAST!  Like heart stopping going 150mph fast.

The elevator that was going 150mph DID NOT STOP AT THE GROUND FLOOR!

It kept going down the street and onto the beach.

At which point I was freaking out, 1. because of the elevator ride, and 2. because I needed to be in the lobby of the hotel - not on the beach.

So I tell the elevator operator. 

Then I woke up.


I wonder what that could mean?

Dog Poo

I have mastiffs...

In case you've forgotten what they look like....

Here's Katie at 3 weeks (she's the one on the left with the white chin).

Here is Gracie at 9 weeks.

Here is a more recent picture of them.

They weigh 220lbs collectively.

We (and my we I mean me) scoop the poo from the back yard.

Imagine the poo.

'nough said.

Bad Dreams

I had a nightmare yesterday morning...yes I usually dream after my alarm goes off and I hit snooze like 4,000 times.

I dreamed that I was single and unemployed

Which isn't so bad, but then I also dreamed that...



Can you say stress!?

I couldn't tell you what sex they were or how old they were - other than they were young enough that I had to do everything for them.  So I guess they must have been like 7 or younger.


On top of being unemployed and responsible for multiple children (I have no idea how many I just know it was more than one),


I lived on the 10th floor of a very small, studio apartment, with the multiple children mind you, and the elevator didn't work so I had to WALK up all 10 flights.

I didn't have money to pay rent, to feed the kids, etc...

What a very stressful dream.

And then there were elephants.

Baby elephants in my dream.

I have NO idea what they were doing in my dream.

Then I woke up.

WTF?  I guess a psychologist would have a field day with that one.

I was just glad to wake up to my life.

My childless, home ownership, gainfully employed, married life.

Pinterest, I'm Addicted

I joined Pinterest.

Now I'm addicted.  I'm trolling the internet finding things I want to buy for the house - or just want to think about buying in the future, or really just dream about buying when I win the lottery.

I'm also pinning restaurants I love.

And vacation spots I want to go to or have been that I want to go back to.

I'm not sure how to tell people to look at my pins - but I want to have some of my friends do so because I want opinions on the things I'm thinking of for the house.

Will this work I wonder?

I've also tried to upload my photos on Picasa so I can have a slide show on my blog.  Somehow it captured about 20 photos.  Not sure how, or why those particular photos were chosen.

Especially when the site spent about 20 minutes uploading my photos.  I have literally thousands of them.

What can I say - when it comes to digital photos I'm snap happy!

But only the 20 are showing.


Face it I'm technologically challenged.  And I have no children to catch me up to speed or do it for me.

Not that I want one in house - but I may borrow my friend's 15 year old.

He should know...

Well...back to Pinterest...

Three Things...

Well I had goals for when I got home from work today.

1.  Fix dinner at home instead of eating out.
  • Check - I made an egg and bacon sandwich
2.  Blog
  • Check - doing that now...
3.  Do 10 squats
  • Haven't done that yet but plan to before bed.  
And let me tell you why the squats.  I'm getting old.

When I walk down the stairs my knee feels weak.

So I decided to do squats.  That should help - along with losing about 40lbs.  

I don't like this getting old shit.


It's not easy to maintain your weight - use to be but isn't now.

Things start sagging and falling apart.

Your hair turns grey - and not just the hair on your head.




I tired of working - I'm just not interested anymore.

It use to be an adventure and exciting.

You get out of high school you go to college.

That's exciting because WOW you're an adult.  You learn how to pay your bills, pay for school, food etc on your own (at least I had to). AND no one is telling you what to do.


Then you get your first job - Double wow!  Your making more money than you did during college.  Not much more - but it seems like so much more because you don't have to figure out how to pay for school and your apartment, and food, and gas, and the car note - you get the idea.

And you also don't need to worry how your going to get enough sleep while working full time, going to school full time, and studying.  So it's like you have all this extra time, it's exhilarating and energizing.  

Then come the promotions.  Yay!  More money.  Then you buy a house (condo for me), a new car, appliances (how exciting a washer and dryer), start saving for retirement.

Then you get married.

Travel the world. 

Then 15 years pass and now, now I'm older and I know there is way more to life than work.

So now I really can't be bothered.  

I know I have to be bothered in order to pay for my house, my dogs, food, clothes etc...

But all I really want to do is travel - in style no less - you know take a private flight with the dogs to Europe, five star hotels, villas, pdiddy man servants....

And when I'm home I want to do volunteer work, dink around the house, take my furbabies to the park, hang with my husband.

I do NOT want to go to work and interact with stupid people and deal with crap bureaucratic BS.

I am not a diplomat.  Have no desire to be one.

I'm to straight forward.  If X then Y.  I don't see D and E...

Unfortunately, I haven't won the lottery.  So I have to try to see D and E.

It sucks.  

But they make it worth it!

Gracie Playing...

Katie with her woobie...

Gracie looking cute...

And my love...

Benefits Make up and Sephora

I like Benefits make up because of the packaging.

And I like Sephora because it comes to my door...I feel prity!  Oh so prity!

And I like kitchy sayings.

So true!  I can be crazy town and my friends still love me!

Cha cha cha!

A Shopper's Prayer

My husband and I went to Jenni's noodle house for lunch.

She had this prayer by the menus.

Just in case you can't see it...


Which art in Neiman's
Hallowed be thy shoes
Thy Prada come
Thy shopping done
On Rodeo
As it is in Paris
Give us this day our Visa Black
And forgive us our balance
As we forgive those who charge us interest
Led us not into Penney's
And deliver us from Sears
For thine is the Chanel, the Gaultier
And the Versace
For Dolce and Gabbana


This makes me smile every single time I read it.

Weird Dream

Really weird.

I dreamed that my dogs were chewing up the end of my umbrella - not a normal umbrella end oh no...

One that was shaped like and made of the same material as one of those boxing balls.

You remember those right?

Like this but only a lot smaller.

And it was torn and tattered.  Very weird dream but I figure that I dreamed it because I came home to this...

Gracie decided she was bored I guess...and her toys just didn't cut it.

I think this is similar to the kids who prefer to play with boxes instead of the present.  She's got a whole box of toys.  But she wanted to rip up the toilet paper - I guess it was more fun...  You know, interactive.

The culprit up close.  The one in the front.  Not the one that's trying to look interested and innocent.

Here they are chewing on their bully sticks.  In the crate.  Together.  They actually stayed put long enough for me to take a photo.  I didn't put them in there, they sauntered in there themselves.

Who me?! I am sweet...

 I am innocent!

I just want LLLLOVVVVE!

Or a nap.  Gracie is natural born napper and cuddler.

Isn't life Grand!?
