About Me

My photo
This is me. Not much to say. I think there is nothing better in the world than having a good friend that you can have an entire conversation with and never say a word. I love to read. Nicholas Sparks and James Patterson are two of my favorite authors. I am not afraid to choose a book by an unknown author if the title catches my eye. If my kitchen was not so small I would have people over all the time and cook for them. I love to try new meals and make new things. Life without a pet is not a full life in my opinion. I have one dog – Sasha. Could not imagine not having her there every day to shed all over my house and get in my way and be totally excited when I got home from work. She knows when to jump on my lap and just be there when I have a bad day. People need to give animals more credit and everyone should own one.

For a while I have been meaning to finish the kitchen. I took a few days off of work last week to finish this project up. Here are the before and after pictures. It sure looks different and BRIGHT!




I don't plan on remodeling this house and putting in a new kitchen before I leave so this is the next best (and cheapest) way to make a big change.
Keep watching this summer for a few more changes to this house!!!

We will miss you Jazz!!!!!

There is not much more to say on this very sad subject. Just that she will be missed and we are all happy that she now has her puppy legs back.

Please keep Shane, Jodi, Shelia and Steve in your prayers. They lost a family member on Saturday and even if you are not a pet lover you know how it feels to lose something you are close too.

Hang in there guys. We are all thinking about you!

It's is finally here...

I am so excited. My Heavy bag arrived today. I have wanted one for the longest time but have only been able to find one that needed to be hung, until now. I found a free standing Heavy bag. I can't wait to get it filled and ready to go for an awesome workout that is sure to kick my butt for a few weeks until I get the hang of it, not to mention the stress relief that can come from hitting something over and over.

Allergy Update

Well Sasha is allergic to 16 different inhalants. I am not even going to try and list them all. Lets just say she is allergic to some very common things, one being Blue Grass. Now tell me, is there a yard out there that does not have Blue Grass in it. Probably not.

So I have started to give Sasha shots. I have to give her two at a time because one shot can only hold 12 inhalants. Right now the shots are every 3 days soon to be 7 then 14 days apart then someday we will only have to do this every 21 to 30 days. I can't wait for those days. With spring right around the corner I really hope this helps her.

The routine consists of Benadryl 45 minutes before the shots then the shots then watching her for at least 2 hours to make sure she does not react negatively to them.

So far she accepts the shots very good (probably because she knows she is getting a treat for not biting me) but I sure feel like a bad dog owner every time I stick a needle in her. And lets just hope no one decides to go through my garbage with all the used needles in there it might look like I have taken up a new extracurricular activity. Yeah not a chance on that one.
