Day 5 - What I did today!

Really couldn't decided what to pick out of my day for today's blog so I decided to do something a little different. Gonna write about my whole day instead of a specific topic with a point! That's right, no moral point today, just a day in the life of sort of thing, lol. Anyway, my day was divided into 2 parts, the first half belonged to my dad the second half belonged to love, otherwise known as R2.

My day started with breakfast with my dad. My dad is normally off on Friday's from work, so it has become a normal routine of spending time together bonding. The day normally starts off by us eating breakfast together. And it's either Denny's, IHOP or today's choice, McDonald's. I enjoy this time, cause it allows me to spend time with my dad. Usually after breakfast, if it isn't checking out estate sales, we will go and visit antique shops or spend some time and catch a movie with my fave aunt. Today after breakfast, we decided to check out some estate sales. My dad likes going to those and honestly, so do I. There are 4 companies whose mailing lists we are on and luckily, 2 of them were having sales today. My first half of the day was fun.

R2 and myself wanted to see the new Final Destination movie cause it was gonna be in 3D. It's been awhile since I've seen a 3D movie, so I was really looking forward to it. Overall, the movie was the typical storyline, nothing new but boy the 3D effects were awesome. That alone made the movie worth seeing. After the movie we came back to my house and had lunch with my dad from Subway. It was a fun afternoon.

In the evening, I found myself at R2's place this time watching the Ranger game with a couple of friends. Ranger's lost :( After the game, R2 and I decided to go downstairs and walk the Riverwalk. That's something that we enjoy doing. We spent some time at Durty Nellie's Irish pub (one of our hangouts) and then he took me home.

So that was my Friday. Spent it with the 2 most important men in my life my dad and my R2 :)

Day 4 - This heat is affecting all of us!!

Today I got scared! A friend of mine was visiting and we were watching the Ranger game. I got thirsty so decided to get up and get a drink. Thank goodness I did cause when I went to the kitchen and looked out the window, I saw my 8yr old shepherd Venus acting real weird in the middle of the yard. She was lying down but at the same time it looked like she was struggling to get up. I ran outside only to find her mouth all bloody and shaking like she couldn't catch her breath. I yelled out for my friend to come and help me. When he came out, he pulled her to the shade and we started hosing her down with water. My poor dog was having some sort of heat stroke. The heat has been so awful lately!

My friend held her up and started rubbing her chest as he kept wetting her. By that time, I had already gotten the other hose on her and was wetting her as much as possible. It took awhile, but little by little she started catching her breath. Well as I was wetting her head and mouth, I realized that the blood that I saw was from her biting her tongue. That gave me some relief because at least she wasn't bleeding internally. So after about 20 minutes of constantly wetting her, she finally got up and started to walk around. I had already called the vet and they told me that I was doing the best thing for her and to just keep an eye on her from time to time. Which is what my dad and myself did.

I'm so thankful for my friend Matt and all his help in making sure my dog was well. There was no hesitation from him at all in helping me help my dog. Poor Matt looked awful after everything was over. He was all dirty and muddy from head to toe.

So I'd like to say thank you Matt. You truly are a wonderful friend. Both Venus and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts! :)

Internet was down last night! Had to post today! Haha!

Day 3 - Cartoons

So this morning I got up about 4 in the morning and for the life of me, could not go back to sleep! I didn't want to get online cause then I'd have to get up and I was to comfortable in my bed. I couldn't listen to my iPod cause my earbuds make a strange buzzing noise that keeps getting louder and is very aggravating. I couldn't chat on AIM or get on Twitter through my phone cause I forgot to charge the phone and it was low on power. So I decided to watch TV. Of course being that it was the middle of the night, there was nothing on! Until I came across the Cartoon Network! To my surprise, Tom and Jerry was on! And I think that it was some type of marathon thing cause I fell asleep after about 2 hrs and when I woke it was still on. Anyway, I use to love Tom and Jerry as a kid! That was one of my fave cartoons!

Which got me to thinking, man have cartoons changed since I was little. Pfft, they have changed since my parent's time. Look at Mickey Mouse for example. When my parents were little MM was black and white and really skinny. Now he has a little more meat on his bones and wears different clothes! But one thing for sure is that that smile is still the same on his face!

To me, cartoons are not what they use to be. Where are the cartoons about animals?!? Or the ones that had little funny cute creatures?! I don't like cartoons nowadays. I take that back, I don't like SOME cartoons nowadays. Some are just completely awful! Anyway, that was today's random thought!

Quick note! For some reason, this did not post yesterday like it was suppose to. So there will be 2 posts for today but this one was intended for yesterday :)

Day 2 - I was only thinking of you!

Yesterday was a day full of emotions. Tears, anger, hurt, fear and any other feeling in between rolled into one. For the first time in my new relationship, I was tested I guess you could say. I was faced with the possibility of choosing between my own happiness and the happiness of someone else.

A person I deeply care about was offered a better opportunity that would have caused him to move away to another city. I'm not gonna lie, when I found this out, there was a strange feeling in the pit of my stomach that just felt horrible. I was faced with the fact that I might lose one of the few people that I care deeply about. But rather than being selfish and thinking about my feelings, I pushed that aside and thought about the benefits that it would be for my dear friend and love. Which in turn turned out to be a mistake because when that was brought to his attention, all hell broke lose literally, *Enter all the feelings mentioned in the 2nd line of this post*

Now his argument was that I was making too much out of nothing. "Blowing things out of proportion" those were the words that he used. That I wasn't thinking of his feelings and what he wanted. I was even accused of using this situation as an excuse to end our relationship, I'm not gonna lie that one really hurt. But you see, it wasn't that. If I had my way, in a utopian universe if such a place existed, I would want this person with me every single day, day and night! This person has no idea, or at least he didn't at the time, how much he and the time that he spends with me mean to me. I was only thinking of him and his happiness. And if that happiness meant me having to let go of him, I was willing to make that sacrifice.

Which brings me to the point of this post. Remember there is always a point. Was I wrong in my thinking? Isn't it true that when you love someone so much, you should be willing to sacrifice your own happiness for theirs? That's how I've always felt because I know that if the situation were reverse, I would expect the same thing from that other person. To me, this whole situation that I went through yesterday relates to that famous saying "It's better to have lost at love, then never to have loved at all". Anyway, that's what was on my mind today...

Quick side note: It was appreciated that certain people helped me out yesterday in more ways than one. Oh and things were settled with this person. To you my dear sweet love, I love you more than you will ever know :)

Day 1 - Why is she looking for me!

So yesterday I received a call from one of my old neighbors by my grandmas house. I received some upsetting and disturbing news. First I find out that my gram isn't doing too well. My mom's sister was telling a neighbor that gram doesn't want to get up anymore let alone eat. Gram is already 90 yrs old so it is expected. Anyway, I also find out that that lady (my mom's sister) has let all my mother's rose bushes die and that she's cutting down all the trees at the house. She's a strange lady. So that's the upsetting news, gram isn't doing well and mom's sister is destroying all the beauty of my gram's yard.

Now the disturbing news, dun dun dun! Why is she suddenly asking for me?!? I find out that she's asking all the neighbor's if they've talked to me and if they know where I live. It's been over a yr since I've seen the b*tch (yup can't stand her and that's a whole other story that I don't wish to get into right know) why does she want to see me? This makes me kind or nervous b/c the last time we saw each other, things were not well and still aren't. Maybe I'm making a big deal out of nothing, but it still makes me kind of nervous. At least I'm not getting sick anymore with the thought of her. Yes, it use to be that bad!

Which brings me to the point of today's thought. Yes, there is always a point. How do you deal with someone that you truly despise and hate? I mean, should you cross paths with such a person, how do you react and what do you do? I have avoided this lady as much as possible. I know the day will come when we'll meet again. My problem is that I have no idea what will happen? This person has hurt me in so many ways that it is unbelievable! You couldn't even begin to imagine what hell she's put me through. I wonder,...What will happen? What will I say? Will I cry, yell or do nothing? That's what's on my mind right now...

A blog a day...

So I have decided that I'm gonna make a blog post everyday for a week starting today! That should be fun. Of course they will be random. I'll pick out something that stood out that day and blog my thoughts about it. Whether it be something I saw on TV, something I heard or something I did, I will decide and blog about it. Won't be anything exciting or interesting, but a random thought or two. Stay tuned...

A new phone!

Oh, such a sad day! My cel phone has finally died! Grr... Funny story. I have had this cel phone since the Motorola Razor first came out. I remember wanting one b/c I thought it was such a cool looking phone! My mom and dad decided to get me one and I was real excited. I remember that they spent like $400, almost $500 dollars! I was so excited b/c I had such a cool phone! Little did I know that about 2 yrs later it would be offered as a buy 1 get one free for like $149. Haha!
Anyway, point of the story. I have been holding on to this phone b/c it was something that my mother gave me. For some reason, I had it in my mind that by replacing the phone it would be like getting rid of another memory of my mother. IDK might seem weird but for some reason it makes sense to me. Well I have come to realize that the phone is only a material item and I am ready for a new phone! Yay, for me. May seem stupid, but it's a positive step for me. So at the end of this week, I'm getting a new phone!
