Rinse and Repeat

Life has been constant as of late. There have been times when it's picked up and left me standing still and confused and there have been times when I've took off running only to look back and see that it hasn't budged an inch. I'm happiest this way, content in the parrellism of the two. Our apartment is coming together so well. Now that I've hung up a few pictures, it really feels much more like home. I've found myself going back to that 'artsy fartsy' side of myself, coming up with new crafts and creating a longer and more detailed 'to-do' list. Before long I'll have everything just the way that I like it and I can focus on perfecting another small detail in this busy life.

I miss cooking, I think baking again might be next on the list.

I'm hoping to put out a garden this year. We have a small flowerbed in the back that doesn't have anything that appeals to me growing in it and it would be the perfect spot. I bought a cilantro plant while I was out with my grandmother on Monday and I'm hoping to pick up a few tomato plants and maybe even a jalapeno. Perhaps I can make fresh salsa straight from the garden, rather than buying all the delicious ingredients from the grocery store. Nothing would make me prouder. I've found that I love gardening, planting little flowers or vegetables and watching them grow and prosper into so much more. It's one of life's little miracles that so much of us miss.

Little Mason is growing like a weed. He goes next week for his last puppy shots and as time goes by, he looks more and more like a dog and less like the baby he seemed to be when we first got him. He's learned how to play fetch and can get quite obnoxious with his squeaky toys when he's still full of energy and you just feel done for awhile. Although he's learned a few things, we still can't seem to master 'sit'. We'll get there eventually, it just takes time. We're debating now whether or not to have him neutered. We were considering finding a full-blood female and breeding one day down the road but we're not sure that we're up for that sort of challenge in the next few years. There is still plenty of time to make that decision although we know that sooner would be better.

I took Stinky to the vet two weeks ago because his behavior had changed and we feared that he may have had some sort of infection or something. Our vet told us that he was just moody and put him on hormones, since then he has went back to normal. He's still moody, he's just not moody with an attitude. I think the vet thought my face was funny when he told me that our cat just had an attitude problem. I could have told him that.

Jeremy started a new job and loves it. I'm so proud of him. I really hope that things prosper and grow into something greater while he is at this place. It's such a cute place too. When I get the time, I'm going to go down there and take a few pictures so that we can set up a website for the guy. It's very vintage, still original and will make some awesome pictures I'm sure.

I love my little family and 99% of the time, I love my little life. Ocassionly it's less than pleasant and I wish nothing more than just to go home, crawl into my old bed and just pretend like I'm 10 again. But most days I'm happy, I'm content and I wouldn't trade any of it for the world. Life is truly what you make of it, it's the mindset that you choose to take on and although it's not always happy, it's totally worth it all.
