It's Max's Birthday!!! And all I want to do is stay in bed!

Saturday, April 20, 2013

It's Max's 3rd Birthday!!! emoticon emoticon Maybe that is why he has been hiding under the dining room table for the past few days. Of course, it is more likely because it's a cool place in this hot-as-hell Florida. Strange for a dog that never wants to come inside to end up in this picture like this. (Plus, he's not real keen on changes!)

I do hope that everyone that is still having runny noses (ours are pollen-fueled now), and windburn on your faces gets a Spring or Summer soon. My family are farmers in upstate (Western) NY and they are all threatening to come down here until they can plant and plow. It's almost like the country has been split in half right above Texas, all the way across. It's a sad state of affairs, I can agree to all that.

Outside of the weather, things just seem dismal today. I woke up at 6am because I am once again frustrated and trying to find out how to make things work out in my life where I have the control. But we can't control everything can we? All I know is that I am so happy this week is effectively over tonight so I can move on and get ready to heal myself and my family and my poor, conflicted hounds. Neither dog will even go to the end of the hall near the spare room. Mom ripped the carpet out yesterday since it was so cigarette-burned and stained and nasty. Okay, I will share the photo of the carpet... And this is only after 2.5 years!

It's pretty gnarly, and it seems we are VERY lucky to have a house still standing as there are about 35 cigarette burns in the carpet that are at least 2 inches long. She would just put another throw rug over any marks, so we couldn't see them.

Anyway, this new week starting tomorrow will be one of calmness and will appeal to me all the greater. I don't have to stress about flying to Alaska any time soon. It will be September, at least, before I can go because his life is in shambles right now. Doesn't even know if he will have a house to buy the way things are going right now. But that is neither here nor there. I am just tired of waiting on other people to get their crap right to start my life.

So tomorrow is Sunday Funday (I call it that) at my favorite bar, and I am going to make an appearance. My insurance agent for Wellcare will be there, and my wonderful friends have done so well this summer already in booking bands, so I am going there to drink water and pal around for a bit and see people I haven't seen in almost a year.

Anyway, it's 1 pm and I still have not the left the cozy confines of my bed. But I did just get my Medicare statement of charges paid and those I don't have to pay. So I am now calling this collection agency that keeps calling here and telling them where they can ram their abusive calls. emoticon

Peace, Hugs, and Happy 3rd Birthday to MAX!

PS - As a good hound-mommy, I am getting up, putting on shorts and walking and throwing toys for my boys. I am not committing to anything more than that right now! But it's his favorite thing, and then I will lay around all day tomorrow and start the week off right! LOL!!

    Happy Birthday Max emoticon (only vanilla, no chocolate for you).
    And I hope you have a great time tonight when you go you, it sometimes
    does the body good to go "blow off some steam", reconnect and listen to
    good music.
    I am sorry about AM, I hope things work out for him very soon, he deserves
    some "quiet and easy" in his life for a while. As do you and your parents.

    Take care and know you are loved! :)
