My Chihuahua ate a Chocolate Santa


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!



Hilariously Horrible

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.

Why never to say: “It couldn’t happen” “It’s not possible”

I’m reading in my Creative Thinking book this morning. I just wanted to share with you a few quotes from people who believed certain things were not possible. I laughed. I hope you will too. Never give up on something. Allow criticism to empower you as opposed to defeat you. Clearly, anything is possible.

“What use could the company make of an electrical toy?”- Western Unions rejection of the telephone in 1878

“The [atom] bomb will never go off, and I speak as an expert in explosives.”-Vannevar Bush, presidential adviser, 1945

“You ain’t goin’ nowhere, son. You ought to go back to driving a truck.”- Denny, Grand Ole Opry manager, firing Elvis Presley after one performance, 1954

“The actual building of roads devoted to motor cars is not for the near future in spite of many rumors to that effect.”- 1902 article in Harper’s Weekly

“Space travel is utter bilge.”- British astronomer Dr. R. Woolsey, 1958

“So many centuries after the Creation, it is unlikely that anyone could find hitherto unknown lands of any value.”- the advisory committee to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain, before Columbus’s voyage in 1492

Among the really difficult problems of the world, [the Arab-Israeli conflict is] one of the simplest and most manageable.” – Walter Lippman, newspaper columnist, 1948

The things people will try to sell never stops amazing me and cracking me up!! I found a page that I got a kick out of. Wanted to share. Freaky things like chocolate zombie baby heads and teddy bear tails for sale. It REALLY makes you wonder if these people are serious or just testing the insanity of humans. My favorite has to be the photograph of some horses in the backyard with trash/dishes covering the kitchen sink. $50 for that masterpiece. hahahahah  Check the items out>>>>>>> here!


Dog Shame

I submitted Daisy’s picture to and it was posted today. She is on the second page. If you click and school down you will see a lil brown chihuahua 🙂 That would be Daisy! seriously, if you need a good laugh just scroll through those pictures. It’s amazing some of the things dogs will do. I love the one about the dog having a trash party and drinking beer plus listerine plus I believe it was hotdogs. He then through up. I would throw up too! I saw another good one about a dog that eats remote controls.  hahah!

I’ve now got everyones Christmas present either in the mail or ready to deliver to them. Thank God. Anyone else feel like this Christmas has been super EXPENSIVE. Even when you do DIY things it still takes money.  I must admit many of the gifts I got people this year were from Goodwill. However, they were good condition things. I would not buy someone something that looked used because that’s about as exciting as not even getting a gift!

I continue to miss Kiwi very much. She was my baby girl. It’s hard to do what is right as opposed to what is selfish sometimes. We found her a good home where she can have a ton of attention.  It’s attention we honestly just did not have the time to give her. Letting go of anything you love though is incredibly hard.

I keep forgetting tomorrow is supposed to be the end of the world. I feel like I need to write this on my calender 🙂
