Do you have this problem in your neighborhood?  Or have you seen it on sidewalks before and thought, who DOES that?  Well, it's a problem in our neighborhood and it's not just on one street.  It's on multiple.  I just don't understand it.

Oh the problem?  People letting their dogs use the restroom where ever there want to and usually ending up on the sidewalk.  It's probably someone who doesn't want to walk the dog and when they do, it inevitably needs to use the bathroom and the dog owner doesn't have a bag.  So what do they do, rush the process along ending up with poop all over the sidewalks. 


If you can't own a dog and do the proper dog owner things, then you shouldn't have a dog.  This is gross, irresponsible and embarrassing for all parties.  Not only are you doing it and others are walking through it, but then you leave it to the homeowner of the house with the sidewalk that your dog just crapped on to get rid of it, really?  I cannot believe that people do this and it pisses me off. 

We walk a lot through our neighborhood and there are tons of streets.  More times than not, we run in to this problem and also react loudly as if the people around us are the people doing it and will then come to realize that others are noticing.  We don't know if this is the case or if this will work. Either way, we think those people are assholes and we think it's so rude to let this happen.

Who thinks that that is okay?

I hope you agree and feel the same way.  Just take a bag with you no matter what!  That's what I do!  If we didn't I wouldn't come back and pick it up.  There is no way that I would leave that for someone else to deal with.  No way.

Okay, I'm done.

Oh, I'm pretty sure I'm the ONLY one in our neighborhood who takes the time to pick up after my dog. Does it suck? Of course. Is it my responsibility? Absolutely!
"If you can't own a dog and do the proper dog owner things, then you shouldn't have a dog."


This is Terry and my motto for nearly everything!

With dogs/pets, kids, houses, you name it....we have most likely used it in a very similar phrase.

It is SO annoying when people want to take on certain things but have a hard time taking on the responsibilities that come with the ownership of those things!

I am with you! Clean up after your dogs!

That is why we have cats :)

This would tick me off too!!!!


Side note: This reminds me of one of our last dogs. Every night when I would walk him, he would back himself up into any bush/shrub and do his deed. It was so funny. Like he totally needed his privacy. ...and I would still find a way to get in there and scoop it up. No one needs poo in their bushes either. It's the hidden/secret stink. ;)

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 …
