New Mantra

So I've been feeling a little judgey lately and it's really bringing me down. I hate when I get like this! Instead of loving, I'm judging. I should have learned from Mother Teresa:
"If you judge people, you have no time to love them."
Very smart woman. If only I could be more like her, well... except for the giving away all of my personal belongings and spending day in and day out with sick people... ew.

Anywho... I've decided that whenever I feel the urge to make harsh judgments or any judgment at all on others, I am going to tell myself this:

"I don't like to be judged, so do I really want to judge this person?"

Hopefully this will stop this new obsession of mine...

Wacky Wednesday



I have a tragic problem that I have dealt with for most of my life. It started when I was a young child and has only grown worse over the years- spiraling out of control like a heroin addict in Thailand. I am a 25 year old woman now and should have a grap on it, but I just... I just can't. My friends, I am telling you this for the first time, finally putting it out there for the world to judge.

I am incapable of putting away my clothes.

There. I've said it. I'm not sure why it is or what has caused it (maybe there was some horrible laundry accident that occured years ago that I am pushing to the deep, dark, depths of my memory), but what I do know is that it just cannot be conquered. I love the beginning stages- finding the dirty clothes, washing then drying them- but when it comes to actually putting the clothes away something just doesn't click. Roo seems to suffer from the same thing...

And for the record... Winnie doesn't actually have bat wing ears... well not really anyways :)

Ode to Puck


Mr. Big Blue Eyes
So funny and mean, I laugh
You are like my child
Peter, my big boy
I am the old "Cat Lady"
Because I love you

For the Weekend

The clock on my computer says that it is 5:05, which means that it is officially the weekend. I have to scurry home because I am having a cupcake tasting with a few friends tonight and have yet to make the cupcakes. YIKES! Mazel tov to all and to all a good night!

(I'll post some pics of tonight... again... if I can figure out technology.)

crash bANG BOOM!

So I have been MIA for a little while, but I swear that it is not for lack of want. Roo and I have been in and out of town for the past few weekends (making work feel like an eternal game of catch up) and just when things seemed like they were starting to get back on track- we were hit by a drunk (well... we assume he was drunk) driver.

Yes... the driver of the other car was Lindsay Lohan- she was let go by LA County's just justice system and made her way to MN where she proceeded to steal a Mercedes and crash into us.


Wait... Maybe I hit my head harder than I thought.

Anywho... the kid completed a successful pit maneuver on my poor Camry while Roo was driving, sending us into the baracade and then on a wild spin, actually hitting the kid's car with our passenger side (we were in the far right lane). By the time we figured out that we were still on Earth, he and his car filled with hos... I mean young ladies... were out of sight. Needless to say, I was unable to exchange insurance info with him so my poor reliable wondeful Camy the Camry is now a totaled mess in the garage.

At least we're alive... although an insurance settlement would have been nice ;)

Driving Ms. Winnie


Isn't it funny when something or someone comes into your life and completely turns you upside down? I had been wanting a dog of my own forever and a day when I found an add in the Strib for great priced Goldens only an hour away. Roo and I yummped in the car that very next day and headed to the farm. It was love at first site when I walked into the barn and my love has only grown with each passing day of the past 13 weeks.

I love you my Winnie Roo!

Lacking in organization

The past week has been quite crazy- with trying to get ready for last weekends' 4th festivities, everyone in the world deciding that this is the week that they MUST sell life insurance (yes... i work in the insurance buiz... snore!), and again trying to get ready to go back up north for this coming weekend. Although no lists have been posted, this one from last week has been rotating in my head:

Enter today:

Not much different. But because this is a super short-super busy week at work, Friday is going to come all too fast and Roo and I have to be out of here by 2. Grrr... I guess we'll have to see what happens!

~I'll post some cabin pics when I figure out technology (that's what I have Roo for... amongst many other wonderfully important things!)

Hello July!

Isn't the beginning of a new month refreshing? Especially in the summer, it feels like every 1st is another 1st chance to accomplish little goals you've been planning. July- I want you to be filled with being free and letting go. Leaving work at lunch to go lay in the grass with my puppy, going up north every chance I can get, soaking up the hot rays before the seasons change and the cool down begins.
