Wilson and the Carrot

I am not sure how I got he idea that Wilson liked carrots. Maybe it was the fact that he nommed them with no effort when I offered them when he was just a little guy or maybe it was because experienced pug owners said they were good for his teeth. Who knows!

Wilson asked me to relay the message that he only wants carrots when he wants them and he will tell me when that is. His story is below…

Yesssssss! I scored a treat! It must be because mom thinks I’m sexy and the best pug ever! Let’s nom!!!!

Mom, we have an issue. What the hell is this?

What’s that? You said I like this crap? We’ll see about that. Maybe if I make my sad face when I sniff it she will cave and give me steak.

I don’t want this.

There’s no steak in the house? Shit.

I just gonna nap. I don’t want you carrot but I won’t let you out of my sight.


Tuesday or Monday?

I woke up with the Monday blues but in fact it’s Tuesday… Can I have one more day off to recovery from a good weekend? In fact due to my AmeriCorps assignment change, I have been off since Thursday! Poor me, right?

So I embark on another new journey today. This one, not so much by choice but by necessity. Every new experience is a good experience so I am excited to try something new.

In better news, Friday starts our summer tour. I am hopeful that this wordpress App works well and that feel encouraged to blog more.


Look at those sexy men. How could you resist spending a few weekends of your summer with them?

Have a great Tuesday (that feels like Monday)!

Welcome to me . . .

I have never been a blogger.  I tried before and it never felt right.  However, today I am in a different place in my life and I think I am ready to be a little bit more transparent in the whole techo-friendly world surrounding me.  I think it is time for me to be a  participant rather than just a lurker. 

I don’t have big goals for this.  I don’t have an outline of post topics or a certain agenda to follow.  This will just be me and what I am thinking about that day.  I surely hope you enjoy but if you don’t tell me what I can do to make it better or feel free to move along to something more your speed.  I guess that’s the glory of blogging… the audience either likes it or it doesn’t, either way, my words are in the open. 

I’ve had some major changes in the last year or so.  I have never said that I transition easily or particularly well but these changes all prompted me to get a handle on my life and deal with the positivity that was surrounding me.  In the past 18 months, I have: fallen in love (after deciding that I didn’t need someone in my life in that capacity),  I became an aunt, I quit my job, I moved to a new city,  I joined AmeriCorps, I got a pug (LOVE !) and I was asked to be a bride!  Wowza.  There is a lot of goodness in that previous sentence so I do hope that I convey the blessings in my life in this blog for without the ability to recognize happiness, I would be no where.

I wish you peace in your Monday.
