Spring Fever?

Should I be getting use to this weather? Or am I going to get disappointed one day and wake up to a foot of snow??? I love that the huge mounds of dirty shoveled snow have almost melted and you can see the grass we've been longing to see all winter! You especially know it's spring time when the Easter candy starts coming out on the shelves. Easter also does have by far the best candy. One word.. Chocolate. Dove Truffle Eggs and Cadbury Mini Eggs! Kind of a dangerous time of year...
I am 26 weeks tomorrow! Which means I have about 14 weeks left....Geez, I remember when I was 14 weeks! We're in double digits now with only 99 days left...but who's counting?? ;) He is going to be such a bundle of joy! He is already, and I cherish these moments that I have gotten to bond with him and that I get to for the next couple months and I know that Jared and Amanda will cherish the moments once he's in their home :) He's such a precious boy!

INSIDE screen cleaning?

Many people are not aware that a number of computer display screen warranties require that the INSIDE of the screen be cleaned at least once a year. Failure to perform this maintenance on schedule can void the warranty. The inside cleaning process realigns the pixels and restores a clear, crisp image.

The process can be tricky. A new web site will perform the task for you at no cost. Just click the link below, then move the mouse around until the entire screen has been wiped by the cleaner.
NOTE: This is a safe and quite humorous site :D

It's Just a Dog

One more post and I'll get off this animal cruelty kick... ;) I was at and came across a headline how the Senate narrowly approved the animal cruelty bill. It's amazing to me as I read the comments how some people are arguing against it!! People leave comments explaining back to them but they are just stubborn and one track minded. But one guy did post this poem that I loved! So, I thought I'd post it and share it :)
From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog," or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog."
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."
Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog."
Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog," but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."
"Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.
"Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of "just a dog", I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
"Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog", but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a man or woman."
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog" just smile... because they "just don't understand."

Cruelty To Animals

This is so sad! I am such an animal lover and to watch this made tears come to my eyes! Even those commercials on pet adoption make me sad to see the dogs in the kennels being walked past... But seriously, think about all the animal cruelty that goes on in the world. I remember when my sister's dog came wandering around their yard 13 years ago and wouldn't leave, he had no tags so, they decided to keep him. He was so afraid of men, especially bearded men... They figured he had been abused by his previous owners. He got over it eventually and was very loving!

Love and Be Loved

HaPpY VaLeNtInEs DaY!!!! I hope everyone has a great and safe day!
Last night we received one of the worst storms, so bad that school kids at Alpine School District had to spend the night at a school at either Saratoga Springs or Highland, I'm not sure, but WOW! I can't remember a winter like this since I was little, the snow days keeping us home from school, building snow tunnels and igloos! MEMORIES! :D Let's hope that it doesn't melt too quickly and mudslides don't begin...YIKES!! Although, as I was quickly gliding down the hill this morning gripping my wheel at 10 and 2, praying that the car in front of me moves so I won't hit them, I was thinking (after the car moved and I DIDN'T hit them) that what a great summer we will have. What lush grass and full lakes and we will have. In the meantime, if we will just suffer through the swerving and the trucks on our butts, we will reap in the benefits of this snow :)
Have a very Happy Valentine's Day everyone! LOVE AND BE LOVED :)

I have blogspot!

Hmmm, now I have a blogspot, but I don't know what to write, I've always hated writing in the "about me" sections! I guess now is the time to finally get good at it :) I know a select few who have this...I have to tell you, it's quite interesting and different from what i'm use to. It will be fun when I learn more about it and know how to use it :) Anyway, I just wanted to get the page up and going... More to come soon hopefully!
