"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

life goes on...

Note to self…next time you decide to eat a hotdog in front of the dog, be sure to wear a drool-proof smock covering your entire body. 

Life, as they say, goes on.

I vacuumed the last of the chocolate brown dog hair from my bedroom carpet today.  I suppose I was holding off as if it would somehow mean Cybil was still there in a way.  But the truth is, life really does goes on.  She will be missed, and I will keep her with me in my own way…but I have two other dogs (plus the granddog) to take care of. 

And today, they were a handful!

But I suppose I like that about them.  I don’t have dogs to make my life easier.  It is the companionship…and the protection.  You don’t get a dog if you can’t deal with muddy paw prints or dog hair on your favorite pants.  And let’s face it…you don’t get a Mastiff if you can’t live with drool.

Luckily, dog drool wasn’t the highlight of my day.

It was a rainy day, so Mike and I went to see an afternoon movie.  We saw Super 8, and let me just say, I loved it.  It took me back to my childhood and a time when kids used their imaginations instead of their computers…and talked on walky talkies instead of cell phones.  It was an old fashioned summer popcorn movie. 

I may see it again…

But tomorrow I think I’ll just take it easy.  I’ve had a rough week!

Until the next time…I’ll be looking for something relaxing to do!
