Fa La La La La

Spent the holiday down in Texas last week. Did the drive down/drive back up thing. We experienced all types of weather in both directions, but it was especially scary coming back on Saturday just past the Kansas border into Colorado. It didn't look like it, but the roads were icy icy icy. I felt as if I couldn't keep the car straight, so I slowed down to like 35 and people were passing me and I thought I was just going crazy. Then down the road everyone came to a dead stop, a truck had overturned with a U-Haul trailer. Very sad. But I felt relieved that I wasn't just having a weird driving experience....there was black ice.

Yesterday, we decorated the house with all of my accumulated decorations. It's very Christmas-y. Each year I add a little more. I think it still looks mish mashy, but I figure I'll get better with each year.

Still

I still have no voice and I am going absolutely insane. I don't understand why it won't come back. I don't want it to stay like this. Boo.

It's also snowing -- boo.

Missing

My voice is still gone. I think this is the longest it has ever taken for it to come back and it's making me crazy. I hate it. I'm going to try not to talk very much today. Maybe I can bug the crap out of everyone if I mime all day. Ha!

"You won't be happy with more until you're happy with what you've got." - Viki King

(In an effort to remind myself of good quotes that I find, I think I'll start posting the good ones as I find them so I'll have them recorded.)

Of Sore Throats and Sailing Boats

For about four years now, whenever I get a sore throat it's pretty much guaranteed that I'm going to lose my voice. And, as luck would have it, I had what I like to refer to as a throat zit last week. (I like to call it that because that's what it feels like.) So, I fought it off with some Airborne and some Echinacea tea and I thought I was done with it. Well, on Friday, it re-reared its ugly head and I started to lose my voice. Saturday I had practically no voice at all. Today I am at about 70% voice, but last night I had the every-ten-minute cough. So, I had a poopy night of sleep. Stupid cough. But I know that the cough is good because that means I'm in the recovery stage. In order to not annoy my fellow employees, I'm eating cough drops like they're going out of style. I'd never had a Ricola before. They're minty....I expected them to be all herbally hippie-ish. I hate losing my voice. But I'm glad that this was a minor bug.

Oh - nothing about boats, I just wanted the title to rhyme.

We Tried

We spent a large portion of yesterday (Saturday) trying to find Lucy a canine buddy at the Boulder Humane Society. Throughout the summer we tried upward of 25 dogs out with Lucy. And yesterday, we tried out several dogs, all of which were too crazy or aggressive for her. Except one. There was finally one dog that we found who gave Lucy the same signals that she gave him. They jumped, they played, they wagged. But...Georgie B. was on hold by someone else. We left there somewhat hopeful that this morning we would be able to head back up there and bring him home. But, alas, it was not meant to be. By the time that I came home and checked the website, his photo was gone. I'm glad that he got adopted, but sad that the only dog we've tested out so far who worked -- was gone.

It's the little things

It's the little things in life that make me so happy. Of course I am affected by bigger things too, but it's the little things that make me giddy. Like gorgeous winter mornings. Like grapefruit season. Like making Lucy's tail wag when she's sleepy. Like getting in my workout clothes and deciding as I'm about to start, to not work out at all. (hee hee - that happened last night) Like hearing a song you haven't heard in a decade and still be able to sing all the words.

Like this morning, I was browsing through the blogs I read weekly and I checked out blurbomat. (I read his wife's blog every single day - she's an incredible writer.) I don't even know him or his wife, but his entry from yesterday is very out there for him and I'm proud of him and happy for him for getting his emotions out there. Isn't that weird? Being proud/happy for someone you don't even know?

Butch Walker - Take Tomorrow

You got lost for a while
You've been trying to find a smile
You got stood up then you fell down
And when you needed, there was no one around

You loved the previews, and hate the movie
You scream at the screen, "something move me"
Before you start to fade away

Give me all your fear, throw it away
Think about the good things, no matter what they say
We'll take tomorrow baby
One day at a time

You just stare in space
You found love but it got erased
On the road with all the stoplights
And you're too afraid to turn wrong from right

You ate your soul and it made you fat
Starve yourself from everything else that
Makes you completely full

Give me all your fear, throw it away
Think about the good things, no matter what they say
We'll take tomorrow baby
One day at a time

So you run, so you hide
And you watch as they die
They all fell, you could fall too
Or you can sew your wings
And try to fly right through

Give me all your fear, throw it all away
Think about the good things, no matter what they say
We'll take tomorrow baby
One day at a time

Favorite Searches of the Week

The following are my favorite five searches that visitors have used this past week to arrive at my blog. Why they searched for these things, I have no idea. As for why my blog came up as a result in their search is that those words appear in any order on some page within my blog. Pretty nifty.

5. pictures+birds+cruches
4. funny things to get a girl laughing
3. doberman singer
2. Laughing Farts Sounds that you can hear
1. dog stringy poop hanging off anus

Rock Me Amadeus

I cannot believe that two weeks from today I will be heading down to Mom and Dad's for Thanksgiving! Time for mashed potatoes, stuffing, and ziti. And Amadeus!!!! Our annual viewing of that fantastic movie. (Not the mention the 15 other movies that we'll rent - most of which we'll ask each other why we rented them.) Lucy and Angus will have a great time chewing crap up and terrorizing Murphie. Poor old lady dog.

And of course, there will be the trips to the store where I will try to moon Mom and do the little clappy dance when I find big bags of the Wise Cheez Doodles. Oh cheezy poofs, you're the only puffy cheese snacks I love. (I love Cheetos too....but they're not puffy!)

And I'll be staying in the room with the video games and when I'm trying to fall asleep, I'll pull out some games and start playing....and then the next day when I'm in the shower, Mom will sneak in the room to try to beat me to making my bed and see her "crack." And by the time I come out of the shower she'll be deeply engrossed in a game of Tetris-sphere. Mom can never get enough of tetris, but only seems to play when I'm visiting. She's a funny lady.

It's funny that even though I still don't consider Texas "home," that we have established some Thanksgiving rituals over the past seven years that we've been celebrating the holiday. Home is truly where you make it.

Things Work Out

You know when you are having a really crappy day/week/month and you are in that place where you feel as though things are so overwhelming and burdensome that you just can't fathom that things will ever work out? Why is it when you're in that place that you can't feel that hope? I mean, because they always do. Work out, that is. As gloomy doomy as things can seem, they're never going to remain there. It is true it may linger for a while, but your hope/wish/dream usually comes to be in some shape or form. I'm not saying that everything always works out wonderfully - I'm just saying that they always work out. And way better than you think they will, especially when you're in the foul place of crabbiness.

And you know you've got issues when you see a hole in the carpet when you get home from work and cry for two hours. Honey, you're not crying about that carpet.

Shooting Star

Saw a shooting star tonight when driving back from the mall. Pretty cool...very bright. I saw a bunch of shooting stars last year around this time. It's kind of weird how they come around when I'm feeling kinda crappy and lighten me up. (ha - literally.)

I did not have a good day today for various reasons. There was one good thing - talking to Mom. She is the smartest lady ever.

Happy November

We actually had trick-or-treaters last night. It was pretty cool. And, we also had our first snow. I'm wondering if we would have had more trick-or-treaters if it hadn't started snowing.
