A Day in the Life, 2018 and Another Month in 1940: Part Seven

I believe that as a caretaker, there is always room for self doubt.  For guilt and being hard on yourself.  Sometimes I have to reverse my thinking.  I sat with my grandmother tonight during what has become my favorite part of the day, night time pill time.  I quickly give her her pills then turn…

A Day in the Life, 2018, and a Month in 1940: Part Two

Babu rises and shines again right around 8:30.  Ok, now we are back on track.  As she takes about 25 minutes in the bathroom I get breakfast started.  I should set my alarm in the morning a lot later because at this point I can do this in my sleep.  When the door to the…

April A-Z Birds and Breakfast

I jumped on WordPress this morning in a scurry to catch up with the A-Z Challenge and my reader was full of birds.  A robin from nature has no boss and many cardinals from avian101.  I wont post the pictures as they belong to these photographers, but checking out their post is worthwhile.  They inspired…

Theme for 2018!

Happy start to 2018.  This is going to be a year of healing, self care, and creative growth.  It’s going to be a year of peace and hard work.  This year is going to feel good. Again, I am starting a post with another post that was inspirational to me.  This comes from Monte Celia…

Dog Days Mondays: Boundaries

Hello!  Yes, I have been absent for a while.  Things, for the most part, have been excellent.  I’m loving my job and fully immersed and focused on it.  I will share more about that, but for now, I have a timely discussion about dogs and boundaries.   My dog is a “grumble.”  That’s what we…

Dog Days Mondays: Stella and Babu

One thing I can say about all of the dogs I’ve brought into this house, and that’s two adopted and two fosters, they have all been great around Babu.  I think they know: that is a nonnegotiable if there ever was one.  That’s good, because the major concern must be Babu’s safety and well being….

Dog Days Mondays

I began writing this post almost a month ago.  Since the prominent theme in my life lately is change, I left the post how it was when I started it.  It is updated at the bottom, so read to the end, a lot has changed! Dog Days Mondays might have to be a thing again!…

Sunday Share: The Difference a Month Can Make

Usually Sunday Share is about sharing other wonderful blogs out there.  However, this Sunday is about sharing about my life. It has been over a month since I have posted and I wanted my first new post – yesterday’s – to be about Babu and not me.  I wanted that because that’s what this blog…

Dog Days Mondays: I think I Might be a Little Obsessed

It has, honestly, been over a week since I actually wrote the last “Dog Days Mondays” post.  Cort isn’t acting a lot better, but I am.  Which means he actually is.  A lot of his behavior I was misreading.  He was trying to communicate with me.  Now that I’m listening better we are all doing…

Dog Day Monday: Part 1

Here is another weekly installment.  It is about, you may have guessed, my dog.  It is off the topic of the blog, I know, but things are not going as well as planned, and this is my only place to vent. Having this dog so far has not been easy.  No dog is easy.  They…

I May Have Rescued Two Dogs

You read that right.  I just might have rescued two dogs.  Here is the story: I texted my sister, Stefanie, the day after I got Cort.  I told her about it and sent pics.  She lost her mind over my dog.  I think she was thrilled because she knew how badly I wanted a dog…

July, 1938

I’m on my way to Florida!  Last time I went on vacation I got all of my post lined up and left my laptop at home.  I didn’t want to miss a post and I wanted to relax on my vacation.  That didn’t happen this time.  Getting a new dog is a lot of work…
