Fun Friday: A New Shoot

A coworker gave me a beautiful plant for my birthday couple of weeks ago.

It sits on my desk at work and I look at it 100 times a day.

I’m so excited because it has a new shoot.

This seems so silly to me because I grow plants every summer and I have a plant in my house.

But this isn’t the same.

I get to watch the plant grow almost every day because it is right in front of me.

I can’t wait to see the shoot open. I’ve been waiting a week.

I’ll post with pics when it opens. Maybe there will be more shoots to open.


I was lathering my hair in the shower the other day when I saw this on the back of my husband’s bottle of shampoo.

I started to giggle.


Do we need picture instructions for something that our parents taught us to do at 2 years old?

I looked my bottles of women’s shampoo and there weren’t any pictures.

Is it just men’s shampoo that say this? Do men really need instructions to wash their hair?

What do you think?

Have noticed this too?

Just thought it was funny and had to share.

I Have 103 Journals

I counted the journals I have in bins in my basement.

103. Plus two piles of loose leaf paper. One pile is 7 inches and one is 6.

Here are some pics.

Kinda ridiculous isn’t it?

I know I have said this before (about 10 times) but I’m going to read them and get rid of them.

I’ve read two so far. I’m going to shread them as I read them. I didn’t dump the shreading into a garbage bag before my husband starting shreading stuff so I could show you where im starting shreading.

Here’s two pics of two empty notebooks.

I think I can do it this time. I know why I’ve been keeping them which I will share with you at a later date.

I need to let them go.

What a great way to start May!

Fun Friday. Leaving Work Early

It’s my birthday today and I’m leaving work early.

I never do this. We get five leave earlies/come in lates a year. I maybe use one a year.

I’m always a good girl, but being a good girl doesn’t get me anywhere.

I’m being a rebel today leaving early.

I’m going out to supper with my husband and spending a quiet night at home with the pup on my lap.

I deserve it!

Happy Easter!

I’m excited today! It’s our first Easter with Scooby.

We went for a walk this morning and now he is sleeping on my lap.

I feel so blessed and lucky to have this little guy in our lives.

This afternoon we are going by my brother’s to spend Easter with my family.

He’ll have a good time playing with everyone and getting lots of pets.

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter full of love, food and family.

I let My Inner Child Out When  I Play With My Puppy

I love to play with Scooby.

I love to chase him around the house as I try to grab the stuffy hanging out of his mouth. 

I love to  play in the snow with him in the backyard.  I run around like a nut as he chases me.  I laugh and giggle and play some more.

I love it when I come home and he’s so happy to see me.  Whining and jumping all over my over my legs while he waits for me take off my jacket and sit down so he can lick my face off.  I giggle and kiss him back.

I love to pull on his rope pull toy and watch him growl and bounce around as he tries to hang on to it

I’m not an adult when I play with him. I let that seven year old girl out who is as excited to play with her dog and her dog is excited to play with her.  

The girl who doesn’t care how she looks or how she sounds.  She isn’t afraid to show her dog how she feels.  She cuddles him.  Talks to him.  Sings him songs

I do sing to him.  One one my favorite songs was when I was little was  How much is that doggie in the window.  This is one if the songs I sing to him.  I changed the words a little

On his birthday I sung happy birthday as I rocked him and kissed his soft brown fur.

I love my baby.

I walk around with him and hold him like a baby.  Sometimes I rock him as I sing to him.

I know with him I can be my total self.  He’s not going too laugh or say mean things

I think my seven year old inner girl is healing.  She knows she is loved completely every day she sees that tail wagging.

As she heals so do I.

Uncondtional puppy love.

I Just Saw The Grossest Thing

I took Scoob out to go potty tonight and saw the grossest thing.

The were worms everywhere.

It’s been raining out all day so the dirt and grass are just saturated. Perfect for worms

The worms were half out there holes and when I shined the flashlight on the worms they went back in their holes.

It was the grossest thing ever.

I never realized that worms were in the ground like that. Normally after it rains I see them on the sidewalk.

I almost puked. These worms long and thick.

And gross.

I just has to share this before I went to bed.

Now I’ll probably dreams of worms crawling on me. Lol.

Sweet dreams.

Fun Fun: I Did Something I Never Thought I Would Do

When my husband and I were in Vegas last month with my niece and she wanted a tattoo.

A long time ago my husband suggested we get tattoos on our wedding ring fingers. A couple of my in laws have them, but I didn’t like the design they had. Just a plain ring design with their initial in the middle.

Did I mention it’s sooooooo permanent….

I didnt like it so I told my husband I didn’t want to do it. He was a little disappointed to say the least but I didnt want something that I thought was ugly on my finger.

I never ever thought that I would be thinking about getting a tattoo there.

Until Vegas.

I was thinking about getting wedding ring tattoos awhile before we went to Vegas. I did a little research and I had a picture of what I wanted.

My husband had no clue.

While my niece was looking around Counts Tattoo Company, I suggested to my husband that we get tattoos. He smiled and started looking on his phone for tattoos.

He picked out a design and I loved it.

The next day we were getting tattoos.

The tattoo is a S and T.

He has a C and T on his finger

I love it!!

It turned out a lot better then what I thought.

And for the people who are asking what will you do if you get divorced?

I’m not worried about that now.

I’m just enjoying my tattoo and being married.

I’m glad I stepped out if my comfort zone.

Bye Bye Calendar Pages

I’ve decided to give my calendar pages to a local thrift store.

I don’t look at them.


All they do is just take up room on a shelf in my office.

I know my why of keeping them so it’s time to let them go.

I’m giving them to the thrift store because maybe they can use them in some way or donate them.

It’s feels good to let them go.

Bye bye calendar pages. Bye bye.
