A Sweetie comes to Connecticut

My new best buddy is here. Sweetie is an 8 year old beagle/basset hound rescue dog.

She came from Tenn. to Ct. on the w/e of March 13th in that horrible rain/wind storm. We met the delivery van at 6 am, and the weather was so nasty. The man who drove her van helped her out into the cold and said "well, Sweetie, welcome to the North."

For the first few days she was very timid and nervous. Now she has gotten to the point that she seems more relaxed. She still has not barked yet, but that's fine for now. We are having good times together, and I'm so glad she's come along.

so many crafts so little time

in reality, that's not exactly true. in the last three weeks i've been to work 2 days. one was a double on saturday and another was last monday and tuesday. so i've been home since tuesday, i go back to work on tuesday and have wednesday off.

the state is at work so i'm glad this is my light week. it sucks that i'm still not 100% but then again 100% is something i don't believe i will ever see again.

coming to grips with how my life is turning out, and it's not all a bowl of cherries.

feb/march in new england is killing me this year

bad cold, body acheing and coughing for nearly a week. i've been fortunate enough to call in a favor from a friend and she will cover my shifts tonight and tomorrow. i pray i am better by Sunday, since i have to work that day.

THE STATE auditors are at my facility so everyone is freaking out. personally i don't let them get to me b/c i do my job like the state is around every day, therefore it's not hard to perform well when they are watching me.

the gardening springtime bug has bitten. there are bleeding hearts and hostas and columbine plants waiting to get into the ground. my seedlings have started sprouting. can't wait!

been a while..

well, I am currently addicted to and games on including Fishville Farmville Farmtown and Island Paradise. I just like to play, nothing too competative, and I don't need to be at the top levels any time soon. It's amazing how seriously people take these things.

there is so much to do in a day I can't really devote alot of it to any one thing. between normal chores, work, helping my Mom, helping the kids, bible study, and then crafts, i just can't be on my lap top for hours planting and selling and feeding and watering.

that's why I'm starting a REAL outdoor garden this year. haha. because i have so little time! however, the truth is I can't afford this mortgage and the repairs that want to get done so it's worth it to give up some tv and free time to grow as much produce as possible.

cuz dang tomatoes are expensive!

also, I'm going to do the wdw Wine and Dine 1/2 Marathon in disney this October. Registration is 135.00 and then I will have the other costs for the trip so I need to 'dig up' 600 bucks for that. the Couch to 5K program is helping me get from a couch potato to someone who can actually run for short distances, which is technically all you need to get through the 13 miles and not be swept off the course for lagging behind.

here we go. 2010 is going to be gooooooood!

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
