Lily had to go to the vet tonight - "get me out of here!"

Dixon House got some new trees and rocks!

I'm out of wall space. There are 17 crewel paintings in my room and I still have some more to hang.  I'm not sure I made the right decision here but I'm too far into it now. I don't feel like taking them down.

This room was supposed to be The Dad's little chill space and then I came here and took it over and I really don't like this color as an all the time color.

I still have the letters over my closet that Gerald, our former neighbor, gave me spelling out my name. They were from some car dealership… and RB's portrait and that butterfly we got in Ocracoke that I love.  It's like a kids room ran into an old ladies room and I can't figure out if I love it or hate it.

I got on this kick where I just started hanging shit everywhere. I literally had a hammer in my hand for hours… and now this space looks like the back of sur la table and I feel like there should be a sign that reads 40% off all fiesta ware!

What the hell am I doing?

I really think anything can be breakfast potatoes...

Side note...awww...

I"m limited on wall space so I've been trying to be good and just taking pictures of things I would usually buy. Besides that, I don't have a you. ;-(

You know what the worst thing is about not having a husband?

Computer problems.

I have had to update my browser for a couple years now, I think.  I don't know what I'm doing with this computer and this iPhoto too. My photos are all over the place and they aren't in order and I got to the end of what are the new ones which are in the middle of the whole thing and just scattered about and now I'm back to the beginning.  What's funny is the beginning it's a picture from my birthday from 2002…

He was just playing around but didn't this all just come full circle? In the end, after everything… I guess this, out of the 15 million on here,  is the photo that sums it all up.

That and the one of the last text messages he sent me that said thanks for wasting the last 24 years of my life. I have a screen cap of that somewhere but it would probably take me three years to find it. My virtual clutter is ridic.

I forgot to tell the cleaning lady that the pup hates the vacuum.

My boss wanted a unicorn party so I ran with it.  Thank you Target for having our theme even though you were the last store I checked.

Courtney had a stuffed unicorn from an old boyfriend and it had a little zipper pouch in it so we had a roll of cash inside to go junking with

But what do unicorns eat???  We thought cotton candy and sprinkles but that wasn't a proper lunch so we went with some unicorn colors.. PINK ham salad… YELLOW egg salad… RAINBOW fruit and GREEN fluff…  Everyone loves the beef ball so I made that too. And favors of course.

HBD Cassie.

My phone has been giving me problems for awhile now… I wan't getting calls or texts and couldn't send things out. It was a mess. I was trying to save everything off my phone and have been waiting and waiting… I decided it was time - whatever I have I have. So… I got a new phone. Its a 7 something with this cute little otter box. Here is the first pic of it at lunch with the girls.

I was looking at some pictures and now I feel like Christmas came and went and I missed it.

I didn't even get to do what I wanted to do - snuggle on the couch with the pup and watch a movie and drink coffee all night and look at magazines.

I cooked and brought food up to the Dad and it was fun but by the time I got back I was just super exhausted and I passed out.

Chrissy was laughing at me b/c I said that I feel like I didn't even get to experience the first Christmas with Aunt Gloria being dead. She said that most people would think that's a good thing but I kind of feel cheated. I don't know. Maybe it's just my fascination with death.

I mean it was my choice to not go anywhere Christmas Eve and Christmas Day besides the hospital. I didn't want to be tied down to a time to get to some place.  I didn't even open a gift. I didn't buy that many yet but I had some that I had bought through the year and I wrapped them and brought them downstairs and I didn't even bother to go get them. The pup didn't even get to open anything!! How bad is that? I'm a horrible dog mom.

We did watch parts of Bad Santa and Home Alone

By the looks of all this we might be celebrating Christmas in July if he ever makes it back to the house. It's questionable still.

The dad is kind of into bingo…
He's become quite the social butterfly, actually.

The Dad got a hair cut today…

… or he got them all cut, as they say.

I brought him TACO BELL and he was thrilled.
