The Land of Nod
It was a rather sedate day but it was fun for Valentino and Pierre once I took them to the Magnuson Park in the unleashed small dog area. They meet so many new friends and now we've got a standing play date every Wednesday, weather and vacations permitting. Now here is the gang:

Moses was the very first dog who greeted me. He was just one of the sweetest dogs and his owner Sharon was just as nice.

Moses Befriends Me
He just sat down as I kept taking pictures and gave me this awesome grin.

Moses takes a seat.
Valentino watching the gang as they cavort around. His little adopted brother Pierre is running pell mell around the place fearlessly.


See what I mean about Pierre
Pierre and Pals Oh Yeah!  I can take you!

They both met these girls, Bella and Fiona. Talk about flirting!!!

Bella had to leave so Pierre and Valentino played with Fiona a bit. Both of the boys hated to leave but they were out like light as soon as I put them into their shared crate. They are freshly scrubbed and getting ready for bed. I'm sure they are going to have lovely dreams about the next time they get to see their friends again.

I'm a complete idiot when it comes to all the fancy stuff you can do online. That said, forgive the potential next couple of weird photo and blog posts because I'm trying to work two different sites together. I'm doing so since I rarely talk about myself except in sporadic moments of inspiration. So I thought that I would just post my photos since they will tell a bit of a story. Mainly my only day that I fully have with G. Plus it's going to be a way to keep track of my amateur photo skills :)

Thanks Miss Tia for pointing out what is going on...I think I might have a couple more of those types of posts so your opinion is highly wanted :). If anyone else is using flickr and knows what to do...please clue me in. I really have tried to figure it out and am currently still trying. So for now, here is a badge.

Here is are a couple of photos from my 'Tuesday Dates' with G. He has taken up Photography again and so I've inadvertently done so as well being that I've inherted his older camera. It's rather fun and I think I feel more comfortable with images rather then words. Enjoy."


This is a Flickr badge showing photos in a set called Seattle. Make your own badge here.

Addendum: I have no idea why the badge is not showing up. It should. Working on it...dammit.

Current Location: At my extremely messy desk.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

So. I've turned more into a reader then a poster but that's fine with me. I will update only because I can and I want to.

I have two kids now. Valentino the oldest boy and then Frodo Puff (still under debate since I want to name him Kajagoogoo) the newest son to our ever expanding family (of animals...no baby yet). I've had a rough past week with the boys since I'm back in training mode again and damn me for the lapse of memory of having to wake up almost every 3 to 4 hours. Valentino just came back from the Vet due to having vomited .5 of his total body weight. Frodo's paws and ass has to be washed every other shit since he is so fluzzy (a new word I made up fluffy + Fuzzy) and somehow, in his potty spin, he has also managed to get those section coated. Sick...good thing I love him.

This has momentarily put my 'I want to have a baby' on hold.

I'm going up in price and commission again. Yeah for me. It's sometimes blows my mind when I think of where I was, where I am and where I will be going. I love it all still and I get these wonderful infusion of passion and energy from my guests and meetings. I'm one lucky, lucky girl.

I'm going to start working towards becoming a Pilates Instructor. That means getting back on track for about a year as a student, then a year of the certification program. I still plan to get my Masters in Sociology but that's not until I'm about 50 because by that time, I'll be tired of standing but I hope to be richer in personal experience so to help direct, shape and feed my studies.

I'm going to getting a motorcycle by the end of next year...I need to put that license to use.

Travelwise: After two cancellations, my friend's wedding is back on again. Rather frustrating that it's so close to the date that the airfare and hotel prices are ridiculous. I know...I know. Suck it up, your friend only (fingers crossed) get married once in their life. I was going to the PI for a month but I found out that it would be more difficult to get that time off as a hairdresser then I thought. Maybe Hawaii will be in the cards. I've only been there in passing. Nothing more then a two hour stop over.

The cousin thing is still was it is. *sigh*

I've been having a number of great conversations with my clients. Today the theme seemed to be about miscarriages. I can't believe the callousness of some people in regards to such matters. One of my clients told me that one of her oldest best friends told her to 'just get over it.' Wow...what a fuckin witch. She's pregnant again so I'm crossing my fingers and toes for her. I guess it happens to 1 in 3. Crazy.

Other discussions. Mediums and Psychics. Where to find a truly authentic one in Washington State. Let me know so I can pass on the word. If you don't want people to know that you see one, just email me your response. College educations and costs. Relationships. Physics. It's pretty cool.

I love it when my mind gets a bit of entertainment, food for thought and a bit of education. I hate stagnant thinking.

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to obedience and warmth.

In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.

You'd like to your lover to think you are optimistic and happy.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.

Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage as something that will confine you. You are afraid of marriage.

In this moment, you think of love as something you thirst for. You'll do anything for love, but you won't fall for it easily.

Yes, I suck shit when it comes to updating. I'm still cruising around and reading people's posts. I'm still trying to bring myself to talk. I want to say something. I need to say something...

I just don't know how to say it.


Contemplation + burning out + foodie = chubby me.

I can't wait to head out to Ca again. Will be going during the end of October. First down to San Diego to visit some friends then up to Allesa Viejo (spl?) and then Beverly Hills. G and I are heading into West Hollywood on Halloween to check out the half naked people. So much fun and eye candy for us both.

Had a great birthday weekend. 34 years old. God I don't feel like it. Some say that I don't look like it. Still loving my 30's. I'll let you know when things start breaking.

I found out why my dog's breath stunk to high heavens. He had this bundle of string and food wrapped around his baby tooth. I was too afraid to touch in thinking I would hurt him. His breath is MUCH better. Still stinks but MUCH, MUCH!!! better.

I'm glad that my younger brother and I are getting back into the swing of things again. I was so angry with him for awhile because of his divorce. They are both doing well but still healing. So that means I need to get over it as well.

I miss ya'll. Hope you are doing well.

Can I tell you how much I just LOVE my new MAC 12" Powerbook? This is how much I love it:

** I've retyped (yeah, you read it right) all my Contacts information for the Powerbook.

** I've created several Notebooks. One of them is titled 'Recommended Reads' and is broken down into Online, Magazines and People recommended books. Then they are further broken down by Genres, then much further broken down by Authors etc.

** I've started writing all the stories that are floating around in my head and maybe I'll get to writing on life behind the hairstylist's chair and collecting stories. I already have a guest who told me that she'll introduce me to her literary agent if I get my ass cracking on it.

** I bring it to work with me in this new hard leather bag I bought just specifically for it so that I can put my iPod in there as well. (Yes...the word 'freak' does also pop into my own mind)

** I soon will be reading the owner's instruction manual and doing so from cover to cover.

** I've been looking for skins which covers the Powerbook nicely and doesn't come off. I don't want it to get scratched.

*sigh* I still have the PC on the desk. Won't get rid of that because I still love playing some of my games. My boyfriend has been trying to get me to convert to MAC for the past year shakes his head at me because I'm on it all the time. It's his fault really.

boo hoo hoo!!!

Why do weekends fly away so fast?

Had a talk with a good friend today. We were talking about how messy our own homes were and how it corresponds to the chaotic-ness (I know...not a real word) we feel in our own lives. I do consider myself lucky but I feel kinda detached. I need to get started on writing that book I've been wanting to publish, drawing the clothes I've been wanting to wear, taking the Pilates and Ashtanga classes I've been wanting to teach, eating the foods I've been wanting to cook, sweating from the exercises I've been meaning to do, taking pictures of places I've been wanting to visit, keeping in touch with friends I've been meaning to write back to, riding the trails I've been meaning to take my bike to, and so forth and so on.

Where did all my determination to do all these things seep to? Cause baby I'm a deflated lazy ass.

I'll be getting back to all those items by next year. Fingers and toes crossed. Some well wishes and good vibes from ya'll wouldn't hurt either. Yeah...I'm fishing for sympathy. *hangs head and walks off in shame*
