Oh my.

I thought this might be easier than it is. :) How can a wedding cost this much? What I want? Not gonna get. I want an ocean, barefoot. Maybe... a man-made a lake, barefoot? Basic: family/friends, fun smiles, hugs. What I don't want spending lots of money, but it seems so difficult. Can't I just have sunflowers? Mariachi bands? mexican food buffets? Smiles? Haven't even broached the non-catholic wedding for all the extended catholic family! So much fun! at the end of it though, I think it's going to be fun, bringing me closer to my family, ganing a new one.

I guess it's dog week. It's amazing to me how much Moose just fits into our lives. and how sometimes that means we take this for granted. I forget sometimes how short the span of doggie lives are. They are there every day, with those big sweet eyes staring up at you, smiling, licking my tears away, celebrating my happiness, getting excited at squirrels, balloons, and curling up to bed with me when G is out of town. I need to give him an extra hug tonight, as the fleeting amount of time I get with him is swiftly brought to my attention. He's almost 4 now, not a puppy anymore.

I am dog sitting for an older dog, he can't see well, has a hard time with the door, and not walking into it. He had a hard time getting up and down stairs, even just getting up from lying down. He doesn't have many teeth left and slows down walking up hills, he's old, and it makes me sad.

And an old family friend dog passed away today. I remember when they decided to keep Chewy, when she became part of the family. I remember dog sitting for Chewy, how she'd chase her tail. I remember her circling the room at holidays, and those eyes, what a sweet girl.

I wish their lives were longer, but maybe then the time we have with them wouldn't be as sweet.

perhaps not, perhaps

I was being a responsible dog owner today and got Moose his registration and liscense. I then went to see the adpotable dogs, and got all misty eyed, and well, I think I need another dog...when the time is right, and the right dog :)

I am exhausted. Perhaps, perhaps, two dogs are more work than one.

Halloween was sort of sad, only about ten kids. all very cute though :)

Glad to have Friday off.

I'm reading this book, that makes me realize how far my food travels. How even thought I think that I am making healthy/organic/sustainable food choices. But today, just today, my food traveled from:

Almonds - ca
milk - md
bread - ma
pb - mi
jelly - nj
apple - ny
lettuce - tx
spinach - ca
dressing - vt
chicken - ma
ice cream - ?
coffee - ?

Sigh. I drive a hybrid, but make my food use lots of gasoline.

I'll never beat my dad ;) I thought I'd finished HP quickly, Sunday morning. My Dad finished Saturday afternoon. Now I just have to wait for others to finish so I can talk about it :)

10 Glasses
family

I have a glass problem. I started to straighten up today, since G is coming home tomorrow. I found 10 glasses not in the kitchen, 5 in the basement and 5 in the bedroom. What's with that? I come home, get a glass of water go to the basement (TV there) and when I go to bed, I take a glass of water with me. I need to take them back to the kitchen! It's a little hard to care sometimes when I am here every week by myself. Moose sure doesn't care if I put the glasses away.

I'm sitting in the basement (with my 5 glasses) and a towel wrapped around my neck. My co-worker is convinced I am suffering from "cold". Asian medicine, something about eight elements...and that I need to get warm, so if I put a scarf on my head and a towel around my neck, I'll be fine, and the headache will go away. At this point, I'll try it. When I go upstairs to ge tthe other five classes, I'll put on a scarf. Scarf? Bandana? Towels, Glasses and Banadana, now talk about an exciting life.

In other news, hmmm, nope, no other news. Oh, wait. My high school friends, Jared and Alexa are getting married! So I'm going to Cali in sept. 15-22 to go to the wedding, see my folks, sisters and show Geoff So Cal. I am very excited. I also just found out a grad school friend is getting married that same weekend. And so the weddings begin...I've been invited to 3 in the last 4 months!

Headaches

I have had a headache for nearly two weeks now. There are some moments when my head doesn't hurt, but more than not it does. I guess I should go to a doctor..but what can they do? I don't really know how to explain a constant headache. That means I have to find a doctor, which is always a pain, I don't know the best way to find a doctor. Blech.
