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...

Why My Husband Calls Me Danny Donkey*:

So, I was at the store. I see this old man getting a shopping cart. He notices a coffee cup in the cart and throws it on the ground. If he had thrown it in the other direction there was a garbage can right there within his reach. I was like "uh, there's a garbage can right there, there's no need to throw it on the ground." He looks at me with this big dopey grin on his face. Man, that pissed me off! He obviously thinks that his being old gives him the right to pretend he's an invalid and doesn't know any better. Well, if indeed he is an invalid, then he shouldn't be driving and shopping by himself, in my opinion. Am I being cold-hearted to think this way? I guess I just don't have tolerance for people anymore.

*Danny Donkey refers to one of the characters from Pearls Before Swine. Danny Donkey Hates People. I often say "I hate people" and the first time my husband saw Danny Donkey in the comic pages he said "That's you!" hehehe


Singing in ASL:

I've been seeing alot of videos on YouTube of people singing in ASL. No, that is not a typo. They are actually singing songs.... but in sign language.

Here's just one example (using a song I love!) :


What's On TV?

So You Think You Can Dance is back. Who's do you think will win?



What's up for the weekend? Well, I have 3 DVD's of 24 that arrived this week (hopefully they all work this time! Had to send one back last week because there was a big crack in it grrr!) , so I'll probably spend some time catching up on Season 3.

Hoping the weather will co-operate for the Farmers Market, Yard Saleing, and some serious yard work. And of course going on walks with Ms. Emma!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

I need to watch last night and tonight's SYTYCD!

Yaya said...

Haha, you would like the book 'Life Would Be Easy If It Weren't For Other People'!

Good job on walks and the gym!

I love SYTYCD! I like a few of the guys, don't know their names yet. None of the girls really stick out to me as favorites yet.

Good luck at the yard sales! I bought a unicycle a few weeks ago for $3. The kid sold it to me and his mom got really mad! She wanted $20. I went back and gave her $5 more because I didn't want him getting mad at him. Now my husband has been riding it all around our culdesac. No wonder the neighbors dont' talk to us much. ha!
