Cold and Pizza

Was a busy but nice day. Shoveled the driveway while Cassandra played in the snow! Lots of snow!! Love when she plays and sings and just has a good time!!
Ran errands and to the mall where Cassandra and I looked at little Gouldian Finches. So cute! I named them Picasso and Monet. How could I not! All the pretty colors on these two little birds. Chirping and hopping from perch to perch. So we watched them for a while and said our good byes.
Found some cute little shirts for Cassandra and then headed home. I was going to make dinner and hubby said the best words in the world! Want me to pick some thing up!? Ummmm, yeah!!!
So we had pizza and watched Liar, Liar on dvd and got cozy warm. Now it's time for me to hit the hay and call it a night!
Hoping everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Wow, sooo much time has gone by since my last blog. I am still missing my Pollie. My baby, wobbie, stinkie.

I am still busy. Not doing much really, just the day to day goings on of a mom, gopher, wife, housekeeper, nurse, cook, chauffeur, teacher, pet sitter, etc.

I am enjoying my pilates class, especially when I can talk my friend out of going to it and heading to Barnes and Noble instead! TwIsT tWiSt of the arm.

So now I am making plans to visit Italy again. I am so excited!! I am going with my pilates group and it is going to be fantastic!! The food the air the fun the wine!! I can't wait!!

I will miss my Hubby :(

I will miss my Cassandra :(

I will miss my Alisa :(

but I won't miss




Picking up after people

Scooping dog poop (but I love you Kimmie)

Cleaning guinea pig cage (I love you too Miley)

So now I am going to bed with visions of Cannoli in my head!

I will try to not let so much time pass until I visit and post here again.

Pollie ~ July 28, 1994 ~~ August 7, 2009

Today I said "goodbye" to my little baby. My Pollie that I have loved and that I begged for 15 years ago. In those 15 years, she has danced, barked, snuggled, kissed and smelled like doritos. My baby has been going down hill for a while and last night, as I gave her a bathie, I realized, it is time. She had gotten so thin, so frail. So with a heavy heart, I called the Vet this morning. I made the decision and the appointment. When I went to wake up my little Pollie, I found that she has messed herself. I knew what had to be done but that does not make it any easier. I cleaned her up, wrapped her in her pink blankie and drove to the vet, crying the entire way. They took us in immediately and confirmed that yes, it was time.
As I held her little body and buried my face in her chocolate fur, I cried and told her to find her little doggie friends that have gone before her. Bosco, Nikkie, Jake, Molson. And I told her to find Grammie...My Mom...because I knew if they found each other, all would be ok. As I held her, and felt her tiny heart cease to beat any longer, I felt my own heart breaking. Knowing I would never smell her funny dorito smell. Never hear her nails clicking on the floor, never wake up in the morning to see her little face again.
I will miss my Pollie more than she will ever know. She will never know how much I love her. She will be in my heart forever.
Pollie, I Love You. You were such a good girl.

Is there anything CuTeR than a little one that has lost her front teeth?!
I don't think so!!
My little Cassandra has lost her teeth, and she loves talking, a lot, with lots of "S" words, lots!
She says:
"Something silly always happens on sunday"!
Supercalafragalisticexpialidoscious, another favorite!
Just had to post her little face!
I hope everyone has a fantastic night!!

FrIeNdShIp and MeMoRiEs

Have you ever wondered what has happened to the friends you used to play with when you were little? The ones you giggled with. Told stories to. Shared dreams with. And when they moved away, cried with.........
There were just a few girls I played with when I was little. The special few. Not because I was pickie or stuck up, but because I chose to have girl friends that would be good friends. Not people that would give me anything, but give me of themselves. Their heart, their soul. As I would give mine.
Over the years, friends do come and go. But. There are those few that creep into my memory from my heart, and I wonder, where is she? What has she become? Is she happy? Most importantly, would we still be friends?
The answer to that, is, yes.
I got a call from a very special girl friend, from second grade. Yes, second grade. She said she has thought of me over the years. What a gift. To know I have touched someone's heart the way she touched mine, all those years ago. With her pig tails and dimples. I have missed her. Now, our friendship starts fresh, as we remember the little girls we were. And the women we've become.
All these years later, I am a grown woman and I still only have a few girlfriends. Some old, some new. The one's that have touched my heart. As I hope I will touch theirs.
I am thankful for the people I have known and hold in my heart. I take them out once in a while. I cry, I smile, and hope, that if they think of me, they cry, and smile.
Thank you for memories. For friendship. For your heart.

My Fattness!

So this is our little Miley...she is also known as Moomoo, Moolie, Fattie Fat and most popular is Fatness!!
She is our little guinea pig and just a bit spoiled. Fatness is adorable and much loved. Dinner time involves cutting up veggies and making a nice big salad for her. Spinach, apple, carrots, banana, beet greens (her new favorite) and any other veggie we happen to have. As you can see she likes the grapes and broccoli too! If I take too long, she will squeel and squeek until she gets her salad. Too funny. Enough about the piggie!!!
Today, no school, Easter Break. We are going to run errands and then I think we will come home and watch a movie, it is cold today and we are not playing outside.
We might color eggs...........again..........because Cassandra wants to. And we can never have too much color in our life!!
Ok have to run and take a shower before our errands, will never be seen in public without showering first!!! Think I'd get arrested!!!
Have a great day!!

Woke up this morning and thought, OH, I am still here.
I have a Dr. appointment today and am a bit nervous.
I have not been to the Dr. in quite a while. But now, I must go. I took my blood pressure
yesterday and it was through the roof. I am normally 110/70 but yesterday it was
So now I am wondering what is going on and how long this is going to take before I feel
back to normal and if it is anything serious. Hopefully not. I will be Praying for it to be
nothing major.

On a more important note. The shootings in Binghamton..... what a horrible thing for those families to be going through. My Alisa goes to Binghamton University and I was in a panic until
I finally got a hold of her. She is fine and safe but the not knowing is nerve wracking! Amazing how one person can wreak so much horror on a whole city.
My Prayer go out to those families and I hope you keep them in your Prayers also.

I will keep posting on my Dr. visit. Wish me luck!
