I know... it's been awhile... again. I'm getting horrible at posting.
Yesterday was Gidget's second birthday. WOW!! I don't know where the time goes. TWO YEARS OLD!!! And to think how many times I was ready to just send her back when she was being soooooooo hard to potty train. I've been saying I'm shocked that I let her live long enough to make it to this birthday... but in reality... I'm more shocked that "I" made it this long. Oh my gosh, what a trial it was for such a long time. But... now she's doing great. She can still be quite a pest sometimes, but she's more of a sweetheart now, so I guess we'll hang in there now for the long run. LOL.
There's really not much new around here. I've been quite bored and lonely at times. There's not enough work to keep me busy at work, and (of course) like the old saying goes... "my house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy"... and I really have "not" been up to cleaning house lately, so I just pick up what needs to be picked up, and the rest of it has pretty much been sent to the wayside. The sink is clean, and the laundry is done, and the bathroom is clean, but as for mopping and vacuuming... well... some day I'll get to those. (sigh)
The weather has been absolutely beautiful lately. I love September. Not only is it my birthday month (big deal), but it has the most beautiful weather of the entire year. October is a close second, but it gets a bit cool later in the month. I'd love to find someplace that has September weather all year long... I'd move there in a minute. Unfortunately... after September comes the colder months. I am definitely not looking forward to winter. Just the thought of winter right now can make me physically ill. I have a dear friend who lives in Arkansas. She's been after me to move down there. I'm not moving there, but she also asked me to go down there for a few months in the winter. I'd love to be able to get away from winter for three or four months. However, I really can't afford to go. I'd still have to pay my bills, and since I wouldn't be working while I was there, I'd have a really tough time getting through the month. I would need a financial miracle to be able to go there.
My holidaya weekend was really boring. I guess Of course there were a lot of events in the area to go to, but it's no fun going alone, and quite honestly, I don't have the money to go anywhere right now anyway. So it was just Gidget and I. We did go for a couple of rides, which she was very happy about, and we went for a walk in the park. She loved the park. There was an old guy feeding about 30 or 40 ducks on the walkway though, and even though I hated to upset them, we had to go that way to get on the path. Gidget was great with the ducks, until they started moving away ... then she wanted to chase them. I kept her on a tight leash, but she barked at them anyway. It really was pretty funny. Poor ducks. But it wasn't so bad... they went right back to the guy after we passed by. ;-)
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I'll try not being gone so long next time. Everyone Take Care of Yourselves, and God Bless You All.
Love & Blessings,
Joanna, Angel Mike & Gidget
