sad, but poignant... thanks Cat Adair
I died today. You got tired of me and took me to the shelter. They were overcrowded and I drew an unlucky number. I am in a black plastic bag in a landfill now. Some other puppy will get the barely used leash you left. My collar was dirty and too small, but the lady took it off before she sent me to the Rainbow Bridge . Would I still be at home if I hadn’t chewed your shoe? I didn’t know what it was, but it was leather, and it was on the floor. I was just playing. You forgot to get puppy toys. Would I still be at home if I had been housebroken? Rubbing my nose in what I did only made me ashamed that I had to go at all. There are books and obedience teachers that would have taught you how to teach me to go to the door. Would I still be at home if I hadn’t brought fleas into the house? Without anti-flea medicine, I couldn’t get them off of me after you left me in the yard for days. Would I still be at home if I hadn’t barked? I was only saying, “I’m scared, I’m lonely, I’m here, I’m here! I want to be your best friend.” Would I still be at home if I had made you happy? Hitting me didn’t make me learn how. Would I still be at home if you had taken the time to care for me and to teach manners to me? You didn’t pay attention to me after the first week or so, but I spent all my time waiting for you to love me. I died today. Love, Your Puppy
Managed to get the work schedule posted for May (finally) and guess what? There are now 10 people on it!! So hopefully no more working 4 or 5 days a week. Yes, while the pay may be nicer than a 3 day week it takes its toll on the body & the spirit when I work too much. No art time makes me sad. No beach time, no Bud time... all of these snowball into a cranky chaotic mess! Not to mention I had to cram Monday & Tuesday workouts into one (done this morning) and STILL have to complete the workout for today. UGH.
I have started on the 1st of my Mixed media Windows. It is cleaned up, sanded here and there (want to leave it distressed and aged looking) and the glass has been caulked back in. Keep in mind these windows are the original ones to our house and as such they are older than I am.
I am at work all day tomorrow and Sunday is also busy so let me go ahead and do my Monthly Accountability post now.
Same MONTHLY GOALS: make a booklet or journal. 3 workouts/wk. ATC Challenge. Mission Inspiration journal challenge. Birthday card group. Blog once weekly. Start on one of the windows I reclaimed and turn it into something artistic. TieDye some scrubs.
The Results are in.... 3 outta 5 done
I made several small journals and took them as demos to Art Night.
I DID NOT work out at least 3 times every week bc of work schedule and some health issues.
I DID complete April's ATC Challenge.
I DID complete April's Mission Inspiration Challenge (today, LOL)
I DID make birthday cards for those that were due.
I DID NOT blog all 4 weeks of April (this will be my 3rd post this month, not 4th...sigh)
What ELSE did April include? Besides working 4 days a week instead of 3? I got to see an Opera (was a bucket list item)...Faust. WONDERFUL!! Loved It!! Playing in my planner &a…
Started the week on Sunday with an orchestra seat for the final play of the 2016-2017 opera season in New Orleans. Faust. OMG! Was so enthralling I was not even aware of three hours passing. Worked again Monday & Tuesday. Today was a day off with only one errand to run. Took Midi to Dr Hunt since his mommy was working. WOW. Feel like a slacker or something. So I made a few exploding envelope cards for a some upcoming birthday people on my list. I worked on my room for a bit. I made all 3 meals for tomorrow and dinner for tonight. Did my laundry, worked out, took a shower... now going to go chill and catch up with the BF and see how our days compare. And walk the dogs. Saw a bald eagle on the Pass Pier last night on my way home but had no real camera... just crappy cell phone so no picture. I will leave you with one of the newest member of our little family.
