Melody wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and to all, a good night ❤
Daisy is like Swiper the sneaky fox from Blues Clues! She decided to open one of her presents a day early on Christmas Eve. She was so adorable doing it that i just let her have at it. I tried to assist her but she did not want help unwrapping her gift haha! She almost even ate the pack of coupons that came with it!!
Just to show my dog is made of nails, on Christmas Eve night she sneaked one of my chocolate santas that was on the bed (my bed), unwrapped it from its wrapper without making a sound, and devoured the santa. I just about lost it. It was a larger piece of milk chocolate so I grabbed my roommate. Her, her gf, me, and Daisy spent the next thirty mins in the bathroom trying to get her to throw it up. We used peroxide which is what they use in the ER to get dogs to throw up. This of course did NOTHING other than make daisy burp like crazy. Despite the panic, she turned out to be just fine. Maria, my roommates gf, stated that Daisy reined from Mexicans (she is Mexican herself) and that they are tough so she would survive!! hahaha! Then she confirmed she was Mexican by stating, “remember, they are on the Taco Bell Commercials~!.” hahahah
I got up at 5:15 AM this morning and left work around 7 PM. This was a long day at the Kennels. I am convinced only Kennel Techs and gas station associates work on Christmas!! Tonight, if you wanted to eat out, your ONLY option was the Waffle House in a not so safe area. :p
I hope everyone had a really nice, safe, and happy holiday!
This has not been the most positive of days. OK, if I am being honest, the past few days have been rough. Work has been exhausting, drama has been draining, and I’ve just started feeling all the way around BURNED OUT. It’s important to be positive but at the same time, it’s also just as essential to be human and feel negative emotions (hence this post).
So here is a list so I can get it out and vent… If I am lucky, I will help someone out there feel less alone.
1. I AM BROKE ALL THE TIME. You know those books that explain how to save money or cut cost…. yeah I can’t possible decrease anything any more. I pay one set fee for rent/electric/and water combined. My dog eats less than 1/2 cup a day (tiny chihuahua) so cheap food. I hardly ever have money for enough food to last me till the next pay check. I’m too tired to cook. Have not gone “shopping” in more years than I can count. I can’t figure out how to financially make it. I don’t understand how people do it, I really don’t.
2. DRAMA. I cannot stand working with people who I know talk or say things about me or my team in the office. I understand wanting to talk or having an opinion. But it’s really not professional to talk about anyone within a business setting. I don’t want to know at any point what people think about me or my work ethic. All that matters to me is that I feel confident that I’m doing the best job I can do. I work full time (sometimes over time), do physical work constantly, and am always exhausted. I don’t need high school crap on top of it…. Why can’t everyone just be professional and get along as a team? We don’t have to like each other, but functioning together would be awesome.
3. WATCHING PEOPLE GO BACK TO THEIR X’s. I’m unsure if this is a jealousy thing or a confusing thing for me. People often come to me to advise them during their break up. They explain how unhealthy and painful the relationship was. Then, after often only a short period, they get right back into that relationship. I can’t fault them because I’ve done the exact same thing!! I ended up marrying a man that broke off our engagement right before actually getting married. It just looks different to be on the other side of the coin. I struggle with the temptation to fall right back into old habits too. I miss and will probably always love my X. I don’t just hall off and marry someone for the hell of it. Seeing people get back with theirs make me wish I could in a way (even though I know it would not be healthy). However, at the same time, I also feel drained from trying to be there for people and help them while seeing them revert right back to the same situation. It makes me want to scream ::DO YOU HAVE AN ADDICTION TO BEING MISERABLE?:: It’s confusing…..
4. DATING. OK, this is just not going well. I tried dating one guy from church. I am sure he is a truly nice guy but after one date, I realized I had never been so uninterested in dating someone in my entire life. I like extremely respectful men that do not expect something on the first date (no matter what kind of relationship I am looking for). I truly this other guy at first that took me on a few dates. But then he did the whole “I don’t think you are ready for this” thing which of course totally crushed me. I sobbed in his car and told him how he was wrong (he wasn’t). But of course in the moment you don’t realize it. We were just at different places. DATING IS STRESSFUL. And bottom line is… though I hate being alone… I don’t know what I want. And until I do, I should not be with anyone.
So yeah anyway….that is my rant for tonight. 🙂
Today has been one of those days that was so horrible, one almost has to laugh.
#1. Go to doctors appointment to find out I have a $89 copay. Where the fuck did that come from? They run my debit and of course, I don’t have that much money in my account. So I go to call Nick to try and get him to transfer some money…
#2. Go out to car to retrieve phone. Left the damn phone at home. Get in car and speed home to try and get ahold of him before appointment.
#3. He’s at training and doesn’t even get the message for like the next 8 hours.
#4. Cancel appointment, and go to Starbucks. A guy that works there has clearly been enjoying the attention that consists of our conversations while I drink coffee. Today, I observed him getting really uncomfortable when a customer walked in and then out with their order. Not really paying attention, he later tells me that the guy that came in is someone he is still really into. That this guy has come to his house for a date in the past and he cooked him dinner. Explaining how everything was perfect but… I kind of dazed off after those few sentences. Is this really happening? Are you seriously gay? Are you kidding me? (nothing against gay people at all. I just really thought he was straight so it was a shock).
#5. In an effort to try to make friends that have something in common with me, I ask the guy who prints my photography if he would ever want to hang out. I feel like very few of my friends adore urban photography, as I do. I just would like to do some things “I” enjoy. I received a very kind email back pretty much kindly declining due to being busy, having a girlfriend, and a son.
#6. A counselor in the meantime has been trying to return my call all day. He feels he can help me with all I am going through (if he only knew). When I finally call him back I find out that I would have to pay a copay upfront of $85 and insurance would reimburse me a lot of it. He kindly knocked price down to $50 a session when he heard dead silence on the other end of the phone. If only he knew that this is what I spend on groceries a week……
Yeah…. I’m going to bed NOW to prevent anything else from possibly happening.
Well I keep seeing posts like this below on facebook:
As much as I wish we all had laser surgery and could throw away our razors…. let’s not do it just because it’s fall or a cold season. Especially not if we have a significant other in our life! I can almost guarantee you that they will not be down with “no shave fall.” Imagine being a guy and sleeping next to what feels like guy legs haha.
And who wants to feel prickles when their legs brush?
Not all fads are cool 🙂
Ok, so you know those commercials of pound puppies on tv that make you want to cry. The ones where the dogs face is SO sad that you feel the need to rush out and adopt the entire shelter?
Well, apparently, Daisy has been watching these commercials and has used them strategically.
She now puts on a “I need a home, I need food, I need love…” face while we eat our dinner. She has found that it’s most affective when she has her nose pushed as far through the bars as she can get it and both paws are pressed against the door.
I had to show a couple pics because it is THAT hilarious
*NOTICE* her food and water bowl on BOTH sides of her.
Give it up Daisy, no one is buying
So after a long day at the vet getting groomed, Daisy, my chihuahua, requested some Chicken Nuggets. haha well what actually happened is that I thought she was in need of a surprise so we made a detour through McDonalds and got a Chicken Nuggets off the dollar menu. She was kind enough to share with her brother Duke. ❤ What can I say…
I LOVE MY DOGS!
This is so pertinent to what I am going through in my life right now!!!
The problem is, I’ve been looking at things from right side up.
It’s time to go upside down.
