lost dogs

A friend and I were at lunch today and mid conversation I was completely distracted by two dogs that were on the side walk near 5th Ave. We were at the Subway and literally across the street was a Vet Clinic. I thought maybe someone let them out and would be after them shortly. As soon as they crossed the road and were headed toward Subway, I knew something was up.

I jumped out of my seat without saying a word to my friend and I knew I had to try and help them. One was a boxer (female, 1 to 2 years old) and the other was a german sheppard mix (not sure of the sex but older)and neither of them had a collar. I was able to call them both over to me but the older german sheppard mix didn't want to stick around.

I was able to grab the boxer by the collar and in the meantime someone from the vet clinic came out with two collars. They said they were going to see if she had a micro chip and go from there.

I'm sure they probably just escaped from home and because the weather is so nice today they probably were loving it. However, my heart just sank for them. I'm glad we got ahold of the boxer but I feel bad that we weren't able to help the other dog. I hope that he just went home and knew where that was... Otherwise I'll feel terrible for having someone's dog escape under my eye.

So, if you are in Columbus area and you know where the Subway is on 5th Ave. in Grandview, you might want to help your neighbor by spreading the word around town to help these guys get home.

I don't know why I'm such a magnet for these things but I'm glad that I was able to help! What a little lover the boxer was too!!

I actually checked the vet clinic about the micro chip on the boxer and there was no such luck! If you have an animal and you don't have it micro chipped (and it's an outdoor pet), go and get them micro chipped! It's less than $50 for most animals! It's worth it!


Oh and as Bob Barker would say, "spay & neuter your pets"!


Hug them today, too!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
