Lucy As Marley

I’ll admit I’m a baby when it comes to losing my pets. It’s been a year and a half since my precious Ricky left this earth, and I still don’t like to think of him as gone. With that being said, nobody in my family has any intention of seeing the movie Marley and Me. I’m sure it’s fantastic, but it’s still too soon for comfort, and seeing as we have a yellow lab. I’ll have to pull what I did when watching Finding Nemo, and fast forward until the sad part is over,  when Marley comes out of video.

On Christmas day Lucy goosie baby floosie aka Lucille McGillicutty, better known as Princess baby dressed up as Marley’s “plump” sister. Had I posted these yesterday, I would have felt like a bad sister for not doing so sooner…but Lucy’s jealous behavior got her in trouble! You  see Lucy has a habit when I’m on my laptop to rest her head on the keys. It’s a wonder I ever get anything done or that she hasn’t deleted all my photos! Have you ever heard of VoiceOver? It’s a program on Mac for Hearing/Sight impaired individuals. I never knew my computer had it, and it’s a great tool for people who actually need it, but for those who don’t need it, it’s a p.i.t.a.! Warning never hit the F5 key on a macbook…you’ll never hear the end of it….literally! Needless to say, I finally got the problem resolved….and Lucy is still sound asleep on the bed!

Merry Christmas & Happy 100

Merry Christmas!!!!!!

I hope you all have the merriest of Christmases, and while I know I will see you before the new year, for those of you who won’t be in the blogging world between now and then, Happy New Year! Today marks my 100th WordPress post ( those of you who’ve followed me from my blogger days, know it is much more than that.) I don’t have a giveaway set up, and won’t until I set up shop…which will hopefully be soon. Thank you for being the best blogging community one could ever ask for.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during this trying time. I apologize for not having the time to visit everyone’s blog lately, and personally thanking you….I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I will today. My family and I really appreciate it. She has an appointment today, so hopefully everything will go well…so we can have Christmas at home.

The Holiday

Home For Christmas

We started decorating the weekend prior to Thanksgiving, but only finished decorating both trees last night. This is the first time since my parents split up that my mom has gone all out for Christmas, for that was the day our entire lives changed. Things may be different, for instance our antique tractor we used to have on the lawn strung with rotating lights on the tires, and santa waving to the passerbys had to be sold, but new traditions have been started, such as the vintage Christmas tree in the front window.
