December 21, 2007 - I will miss you Jake...

On Friday we got out of work early and I went home to find my little dog in distress. It was so sad - he def. wasn't feeling well and after he collapsed in the stones in the backyard in front of the pool and just layed there in the rain I knew it was off to the animal hospital we had to go. I hated to do that to him because there were def. 2 things in life Jake hated and that was the rain and taking a ride in the car. I knew if he was laying in the rain there was a problem. My heart was breaking the whole way there, and he was so good in the car for the first time ever and so I was reassurred this little guy was sick, I am not even sure he knew he was in the car. We have had Jake for 15 years and he has been such a part of my life - I wanted to put him in a doggie tux and take him to my wedding but I wasn't sure if that would go over well with Father McCormac, but anyway when we first got him I was 15 and I hated him. He was so cute and so little but he was causing such an abrupt change in my life. My social life was immediatley paused because I had to stay home and take care of a dog that I never even asked for, he couldn't be alone so someone had to stay with him and of course I fealt like that person was always me. But after a little while and as he got used to our house it was fine. As time went on he became my little sidekick, always following me everywhere, getting in the way of everything I tried to do, and at night seriously the little guy would crawl up on my bed and nuzzle himself as close as he could get to me. He also liked to sneak out of the yard one time I followed him all the way to Dogwood, if you are familiar with the area its two sections over and across a major highway. Needless to say when we were at the animal hospital and they urgently grabbed him from me - my heart broke and i burst into tears. I think in my heart I knew he was really sick and I knew he had lived soooo long and I just knew this was it. My dad was sadly trying to tell me this might be it, but I knew it and was in denial at the same time. Even when the doctor said lets give him a shot, lets see what happens through the night and we will talk some more tomorrow. I stood there and shook my head at her as if to agree with keeping him stable as long as possible and then in disagreement about talking tomorrow. My parents knew and so did I but I just didn't want to. At 7:15 they let us go back and see him - he was in an incubated cage - getting oxygen and on an IV, he had his paws crossed in front of him with his head down, so we couldn't really see his face, but he looked so comfortable not in distress like he was at home. I was happy to see him content at that moment and I was ok to leave so we did. Around 9:00 Billy came to get me at Michelles because Jake had passed on his own and we wouldn't have to have that talk tomorrow. I was so upset, my little sidekick was gone. Christmas Eve was seriously the worst day. I started wrapping my presents and he wasn't there standing on my wrapping paper or laying on the gift I was trying to wrap. I was no longer tripping over him or waiting for him as we came in from the backyard. I didn't need to feed him and he wasn't begging for a treat. I didn't have to carry him up the stairs or take him off the bed because in his old age those were major tasks for him. I basically had the worst Christmas Eve ever as I wrapped my gifts with tears falling down my face and the heaviest heart ever. I never thought I would feel sooo much like I do but there is a little hole in my heart now and it is a hole that Jake used to fill and I will miss him always with lots and lots of love.

Look what I did...........

Apparently I was nervous or edgey maybe....I made Michelle go first because I was afraid I would carry on like a "maniac" as someone has told me I did when I got my belly button pierced. If I did that I knew I would be walking out of that place with a nose piercing alone. I needed to have an accomplice so she had to go first - the guilt alone would make me do it no matter what! Which is exactly what made me do it - because after i heard Michelle breathe in really hard when the needle was in her nose I fealt faint...but I knew I had made a deal and she was wearing the needle, soo....
I decided I would get a needle too! Nice ha? It makes me sick to look at it, how could I lay there so still with a NEEDLE in my nose!!!! Do you see that needle its not a small little thing its GROSS!!!!! and there it is just chillin in my nose!

Thank goodness its over!! And Look how cute! I look a hot mess here but Michelle looks so cute with her new accessory! And I have to be honest it didn't bother me at all after it was all over!!! Actually I love the darn thing, and its so cute! I got some bling in my nose- thats exciting!!! Wonder what it will look like when I am 40?

Strike a Pose...

My friend Michelle, who I know I have mentioned before is an upcoming star photographer, I love that she is always in my face because she takes the best dam pictures of me - no one could do me justice like she does! Anyway she was right by my wedding photographers side all day - so I got to see the pics he was taking through her! I have to say that if I was a celebrity it would be my pleasure to be followed by the paparazzi all day long - I really felt like a celebrity on my wedding day , my teeth even got dry from smiling so much!!! Here I am posing all over the place for my personal pappo!!!

This girl looked amazingly beautiful....

This is the best picture of my beautiful flower girl who tries to convince me all the time by telling me "I am a boy". I think she is trying to tell me she can do whatever she wants ride bikes and play rough and be spider man for halloween, and then play school and with her dolls when she wants too! Its fine I will let her think and do whatever she wants. I know she couldn't wait to wear her pretty dress and I know that when I asked her if she wanted a crown for her head like a princess she said yes, and even though I know she transformed from princess to spider man before the eyes of 200 people, I know she loves being a little princess at heart!

Helenas Wedding

Helena and Dave were married September 21! We had the best time ever and I think its the most fun I ever had at a wedding! I had to post that last picture there because I have to tell you I am a lot of things but I never knew I wwas a groper! I have to warn you all - 6 cosmos is way toooooooo much! Please don't ever drink in excess because when your having a good time and you drink to the point of memory loss things like this happen, and its too funny not to share, yet soo crazy that if the pic wasn't there - I may not believe it even happened! I must warn you, don't get drunk at weddings!
