We have a new puppy. We rescued him from the animal shelter and according to them he's about 2. He's a little terrier mix, furry job and he is adorable. Except that he poops. And he sheds. Hair. Everywhere. Especially on my black clothes and my velour sweat suits! (Eeww. After the 70's who would have thought we would be wearing velour again?) He also has thrown up on the kitchen floor. Is everyone aware that pets do this kind of stuff? Why was I not informed? Is it not enough that we rescued him from a certain death, not to mention the grumpy cell mate he had. I don't know about this pet business. I can't even tell you the time I've had trying to name this guy. I was adamant that he not have a people name. So, we named him Jack. I think that's what we finally agreed on. We've been calling him all kinds of names to see if he would respond to one. Any one. He won't even perk up an ear. All we were looking for is some kind of sign as to what to name this dog!! My friend even had a whole office coming up with names. It didn't take this long to come up with a name for our son. So, after all the agonizing tears and sleepless nights, it's Jack. Just Jack.
Here's a list of discarded names:
Mr. Bo Jangles
Barky Von Schnauzer
Lt. Dangle
Michael Kelly Guitar Patriot custom w/Mahogany neck in Amber (the hubby's submission)
fuzzy britches
pooper scooper
You are so going back to the pound, Mister!(I'm kind of partial to this one)

This is Jack.

Gooey yumminess

Is there anything better than an eclair? How about a giant eclair? How about a free, giant eclair? That's what I had for breakfast this morning. I refuse to feel guilty about it too. It's so yummy. A doughnut filled with creme and topped with a thick layer of chocolate. MMMMmmmmmm...I still have half of it waiting for me to gobble it up.
It wasn't completely free, though. A couple of us were trying to convince someone to make a run, and I offered to make Biscochitos for this person in exchange. I think it's fair, and I might possibly burn a calorie or two from the eclair in the process. Why can't more things in life be this simple?

Odd thoughts

Do you ever look at people and wonder what they are like? I will see an old man at the mall just sitting on a bench and I will think, "Aww, what a cute little grandpa." Then I start to think that maybe he's not. What if he's some tyrant who was mean to his kids or his wife and made everyone miserable and that's why he's alone right now. Or the lady I was behind in traffic with a messed up car, all primered up and missing chunks out of the body. I think, poor thing, she's just trying to make a living and support her kids. But what if she's not? What if she's got six kids by six different dads and she neglects them and spends all, if any child support money on manicures and jewelry and getting her hair done, meanwhile her kids don't have clothes that fit? I'm a people watcher and I guess I just get carried away wondering what they are really like. We never really know what's going on in other's lives. We make assumptions by the way they are dressed or what they drive or how they talk. I like to think that the little grandpa has lived a full life and is loved. I hope the struggling mom will find her way and that her kids love and admire her. I say a little prayer for the people that stick out in my observations that life is good for them and that they know peace.

Today is Friday the 13th. I'm not superstitious but this morning while I was getting ready for work, a humongous spider was crawling down my arm!!! I can't stop itching. I don't mind spiders as long as they are chomping up other grody bugs and as long as they ARE NOT CRAWLING DOWN MY ARM!
The hubby, my knight in flannel pj bottoms, came to my rescue and slayed the offending beast for me. I hope everyone has a good day!

The best thing ever!

scrabble sofas!

A New Post!

1. We finally have a final diagnosis on the Hubby. He has a stress fracture in his left foot. He is slowly but surely recovering. The good thing was that he has had a lot of time off and it's been nice having him home & awake on the weekends!

2. Stuff that hurts my heart & that I can't/don't want to go into right now. Maybe later when it's all been resolved. Part of which includes anger @ a school system I always defended & felt that parents needed to be more involved in if they wanted it to get better. Now, I'm just done. It won't get better. You can't fight it, & most disturbing to me- you can't change it. The only thing I still stand by is this: schools are a product of our society. We have made them what they are, and most certainly what they are not.

3. My little man made his first spring break trip by himself! He went to visit his aunts & uncles & cousins. He flew on a plane all by himself. He has his own money that he had to budget. He left me an 11 y/o and he came home a 12 y/o. (tearing up right now...) He had a blast. He shopped, he played, he drank a crazy amount of Mtn. Dew, he went to his first ever pro-basketball game, & he got to sit 3 rows behind the dugout at a pro-baseball game!
*side note* you are required to take off your shoes in order to get through security @ the airport. Am I the only one who thinks it's disgusting to go barefoot?! I saw so many people who wore slip-on shoes, for convenience-I get that, but then took their stinky, sweaty feet & walked on the concrete, which had to be cold! and then someone behind them did the exact same thing. They walked the same path, picking up sweat & germs from the person before, leaving behind their own mix of yuckiness! Not to mention the hair that could be down there, just waiting to get all wrapped around a toe, yikes, and then there were bare toes everywhere. Talk about nastyiness. Am I alone here on this?

4. Also, re: the airport. Why does every stupid/annoying/irritating idiot who knows nothing about respecting people's personal space, always end up in line right behind me?!! Have you ever seen the show about people's boiling points? I would so not win any money... Anyway, at 7:00 in the morning on a weekend, anxiously waiting to pick up my son, I don't want to stand in a massive line to get through security with some idiot behind me who talks loud enough for the whole airport to hear him. Who do I get stuck in front of? Not only is he talking loud and getting too close to me, it was April Fools Day, so he was trying to come up with various scenarios to play on the people who just dropped him off and his wife/son's mother that was meeting them at their destination. He had a child with him who talked like he was a college professor. The child was more mature, probably out of necessity, but also equally as irritating, because, You're A Kid for Pete's Sake! Once we got through security I put on my tennis & got as far away as possible. /airport.story

5. I have a wonderful new toy that I never thought in my entire life, would I ever get the pleasure of owning. Check back for pictures and general screams of joy!
