This sweetheart is Sophie. Dogs are fantastic.

Showers- I go in dirty, but I come out clean! It's awesome.

Showers-Car washes for humans.

Showers- It's like it never happened.

Ok, I'm done.

I think maybe my cats get up on the table too much. Also, I should probably clean the table before I have people come over for dinner. Sheesh!

broken heart

So I did something very out of character for me and told this fun boy I'm friends with (don't ask who, it's private) that I liked him in a special way. Don't worry, I didn't say it like that, the way I said it to him was much more stupid. I usually just crush on boys from a distance until the crush fades because I'm too much of a chicken to put myself out there. That wasn't getting me anywhere though except living with Mary-Claire and 4 cats and knitting more scarves then one person could possible ever need. Don't get me wrong, I love all the cats and MC, but I felt I was going down a dangerous spinster road. I decided one of my resolutions for 2011 was to flirt more (actually the first one was to learn HOW to flirt, and then put it into action) be braver and take more chances. So I took a deep breath, wrote him an email that was way too long proclaiming my feelings for him, pushed the send button, and then ran and hid my head under a pillow (cause I'm an adult). It was very exciting and I was so proud of myself. He said no thanks. Crap. So now I'm sad and my heart hurts a little so I decided it needed a band-aid. It's ok though, I'm glad I did it. He and I are still friends (I think) and now that I know, I can move on to the next boy...or scarf.

don't give up

When I turned 29 my friend Mary-Claire got me this necklace. It says don't give up. I loved it! But for some reason I didn't notice that it said don't give up on what I thought was the back, and later found out from MC is actually the front. I just thought it was pretty and had random letters on the back. I declared it my lucky necklace and wore it every time I felt I needed luck, which was everyday. A few weeks ago on a particularly bad day, more then 6 months after she gave it to me, I looked down and noticed what it said. I texted Mary-Claire and said, Hey this necklace says don't give up! Actually half expecting her to not know it said that either. She obviously knew because she's not ridiculous. I can't believe it took me that long to notice, Mary-Claire can. I swear I know how to read.
