Hello blog world! It’s been a very long time since I last posted so I’m happy to be making an appearance again. Plus I can’t wait to start catching up on some of my favorite blogs that I follow.
I’m thrilled to report that this is the last weekend before finals which means I’ll have plenty more time to post and to enjoy time with family and friends. I managed to complete two of my papers and just have one more paper to write and then it’ll just be reviewing for my exams. I really shouldn’t complain much because truth be told I’ve been able to enjoy little fun breaks here and there, but of course they haven’t come without their consequence.
Right now I’m just going to enjoy the simple pleasure of having a few minutes to write and share some random thoughts I had throughout the day. I have a feeling Biggie, our bulldog, has some kind of vendetta against me today. We had a great walk this morning but then he was up to his mischevous old self and kept wanting to rumble with me. He likes to grab this Kong rubber ball that he has and then get you to chase him around trying to get it from him. The problem is if I say no he thinks that by trying to jump on me he’ll change my mind. This just results in me giving him a “time out”. Yes, our dog gets time outs. He basically gets put behind the training gate we purchased when we first got him and you’d be surprised but it work wonders. Well Biggie didn’t seem to get (or care) being placed behind the gate today until the third time I put him on a time out and then he finally settled down.
Just a few minutes before deciding to post I had also been enjoying a 20 minute power nap when my husband woke me up to let me know he was going to practice his drums and then we could go out to dinner, a treat for us today. Well no sooner had my husband disappeared into the garage and I had dialed my mom’s number when all of a sudden that beast (a love moniker we have for Biggie) tried to jump on the couch and half landed on my head. What gives?! He wanted to rumble. Why me? I think it’s because I’m smaller and pose no real threat to him. You should see how exhausted he gets when my husband chases him around. At any rate, he calmed down and is now flat on his side looking like a quiet angel. I won’t be fooled!
I also had a crazy idea pop up in my head that quite honestly I feel a little bit shy about writing here because then the idea isn’t just my own to guard but out there for others to see. But well seeing that this is my little safety net I will go ahead and share my thoughts. So I was thinking about some changes that will be happening soon and out of nowhere I suddenly think “maybe I could freelance write for a little spare change”. What? Where did that come from? Yep, that thought actually crossed my mind. Hmmm… I’ll just leave it at that for now.
Well that’s all for now. I can hardly believe I was able to post as much as I did today. Good day to you all!

I DID miss you! I had similar thoughts about writing. Fun and scary to put it out there, huh? Sending you good wishes. Welcome back and congrats! 🙂
Aw thank you! 🙂 It’s totally fun and scary to put those thoughts out there. I use to have those thoughts about writing a lot when I was in High School and then somewhere along the way they got pushed back and lately have been resurfacing and surprising me now and then. By the way, I think you should pursue your thoughts about writing too, I really enjoy reading your posts. 🙂
Thank you! I really do think we’re kindred spirits. 🙂
