Still Alive in 2012

My goal is to do some posts this year, hopefully more regularly.  2011 saw illnesses of my parents.  My dad has recovered from his but my mom not so much.....

We are getting ready to send our youngest off to college this fall.  We are waiting on our daughter's decision on whether or not to join the army.... Yes, lots going on and lots of photos taken but I just never got around to blogging.  Facebook grabbed me and sucked me right in.  My boy, third from the left, was voted to homecoming court last fall.  He had fun, made some new friends as a result, and it was a beautiful day for the last home football game of the year, and marked the end of his marching band career forever.  He doesn't want to be in band in college... bummer.

Here's hoping 2012 will be a better year.

Remembering Sarah

Back when I snapped this picture, I did not know the battles she had faced already and would be facing again.

Heaven gained a new angel last night.... I am sure she's getting some amazing photos of her new home...

And It Hasn't Happened Since...

I snapped this photo a few weeks back, totally thrilled that after two years of living together, my old guy finally caved and let the younger beagle snuggle with him.  Here I thought it was the beginning of something magical and wonderful that would happen time and time again.... it hasn't since this picture was snapped.

Ruby loves Freckles - I always believed he could take her or leave her but I do believe he has softened a bit.  Why else would he have allowed this tender moment.  My old beagle may be a curmudgeon, but I adore him so.....

Visit I Heart Faces so you can get your fill of adorable pet pics!

Matthew Morrison! Whoah!!! Gleefull????

I just saw this pop up on my AOL news feed, was intrigued by it, went to the link and totally laughed myself silly.  I love Glee and I love, love, love, love Matthew Morrison!

Two Jobs!

Yup, since January I have been working two jobs, which has left little to no time for me to put together a creative blog post.  Not that my life would excite anybody else, but I love my life and wouldn't change a second of it. We do what we have to do.  I am so fortunate to be able to work from home transcribing for lots of doctors via a transcription service.  Because work had gotten sparse, I interviewed with a private practice and am now transcribing for this lovely gentleman. I also work for another doctor there but I couldn't find a photo of her.  Both of them are very, very kind and not the least bit stuffy as you may expect from a doctor. He's both warm and friendly and funny.  Here's to a nice long working relationship with my new employer and his staff.

Oh, and the day I accepted the position, my boss from my other job called to let me know my work would be increasing by leaps and bounds - hence I type from sun-up to sun-down every day 7 days a week - at least until we are done paying college tuition.

A Slice of Life

Is even better than a slice of chocolate cake with butter cream icing!  And, it's certainly a lot less fattening.  I didn't think I'd have an opportunity to enter the I Heart Faces theme for this week as I am so bogged down with work (which is a good thing).  However, a few minutes ago I heard the familiar sound of my daughter at the piano.  This is a sound I have sooooo missed over the last few months.  I grabbed my camera and voila I had a photo to enter.  The dogs in the background are a bonus.  I think they missed her playing also as whenever the music starts, their games begin!

Be sure to head on over to I Heart Faces where there will be lots of Slices of Life!
