This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

The Bruise

It's hard to determine my actual skin color. I guess one could say it's black & blue. I'm a bruiser and I have bruises all over my body. Most of them I do not even know where they come from. Just every day things.

But the bruise you saw in this post is one I actually know where it came from! It's stupid, really. I took Emma to get her nails clipped. The girl at the doggy salon scared Emma by not allowing any time for Emma to warm up to her. Emma freaked out and tried to get away. I was trying to hold her still but her paw went flying and scratched my arm. It really wasn't that big of a scratch. But man, the bruise.... everyone who has seen it thinks I really injured myself!

Sorry to disappoint those who asked... the story isn't THAT exciting!
Here's another lovely shot of the bruise.
