tying up loose ends

TGIF pals!  I've got some loose ends to tie up on le blog so here goes. 

First off, thank you all so very much from the bottom of my heart for your kind words regarding the passing of Tiger Wiger. Its been really hard for everyone in the family to accept that he is really gone. I've been trying to respond to comments as soon as I can. This whole having a new job thing is getting in the way of blogging. I kid, I kid. 

I've been trying really hard to get five solid posts in each week. In the month of April alone I have passed the amount of blogs I wrote in all of Jan-March. Holla! I hope the trend continues. 

I did have a short set-back this week when I found out the family I used to nanny for had to put their dog of 13 years down. This is a dog that I've known for the past 10 years. The dog was one of the best dogs out there. I got very emotional about it and haven't really been able to think of much else.  I saw the dog most recently in March. I would often dog sit for them. Their daughter was closes to the dog named Penny Lane and posted this beautiful message on FB the other night. 

"A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes. Status symbol means nothing to him. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his." Penny Lane, thank you for 12 years and 10 months of unconditional love, never ending loyalty, selflessness, friendship, and pure bliss. You have taught me to appreciate life's simple joys: ice cubes, freshly fallen snow, a nap in the sun. Everyone always said she was lucky to have us, but we were the lucky ones. Rest easy, sweet angel. May your days be filled with doggy bagels and mcdonalds. We love you more than you'll ever know. ❤️

I realized (due to comments) that I never did tell you if Ry-guy ever said anything about the email I sent him in the post on our first date.  He says he either never got the email or never responded thinking it was some sort of junk/spam email at the time.  I guess homeboy was getting some emails from ladies wanted him to chat and click on their "website".

I'm almost done with my first week at the new job. I love everything about it. I'm in the process of getting my new office set up and hope to have it done within the next week or so. I'm  hoping to have a post done next week about the new gig. Stay tuned. 

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!  We don't have too much planned, since last weekend was spent in Iowa and we head back there next weekend. 

what are you doing this weekend?

  1. Ok, tears from that FB post of Penny Lane!!

  2. Ahh, so sad that they had to put her down. That is my biggest fear :( I have a friend who was just told that their cat won't live pass another week. The cat has sat at the same spot for days. OK, I need not to get emotional.

    I'm glad your first week went great. Today is my first day and I hope I report the same on Friday :)

    Ok, I seriously laughed out loud to your homeboy comment.


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to read about Dexter Morgan and his adventures.
