Reason for Blog Break

"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

I have decided to take a little blog break.
It's getting very busy at work and I'm tired.
I also need to get outside and clean up the yard.
I need to finish some of these other projects that I've started.
I will be back when I'm recharged and when I've completed a few projects and have some photos to prove it.
I've got some stories to share, which are mostly written but...
I can't seem to get my brain focused enough to finish them.
Sometimes, I feel like if I don't blog/share about the things that happen in my life... it's like they never happened.
Does that make sense?
Hmm, well, anyway...
So, just wanted to explain why there won't be posts for a little bit.
Take care and hope to be back soon!

Haters Gonna HATE.

Seems like everyone I talk to lately, are always judging other people.
I can't get away from them, they are in my personal life
and it's also some of the people I work with.
They always have some snarky comment. 
They think that anyone that makes a choice different from what they would have done is wrong
and stupid.
They seem to enjoy talking people down and criticizing everything.
Maybe it's human nature.
I hope it's not a woman thing.
I would hope women are better than that.
I've certainly done it myself and I feel ashamed.
Yep, sucked into the meanness.
The negativity.
So, as of today I'm going to try to be a better person.
Someone who minds my own business,
tends my own garden
and does or doesn't do whatever I damn well please.
As long as I bring no harm to others,
it's no ones business.
I'm not going to feel guilty about decisions
or feel the need to explain.
I'm tired of feeling bad.
Of letting others make me feel bad.
I'm tired of it.
No wonder I prefer the company of animals.

Sometimes you run across something that has perfect timing.
Like it was meant to be.
Or should I say, meant to see.

WEDNESDAY WORD on Thursday and a YouTube Video

Last week, on Wednesday, I had my work anniversary. I've worked there for 12 years.
 My sick hours and vacation days for the year start over again.
I get 24 sick hours.
and 2 weeks vacation that can be broken down into days or hours even.
On Friday. I took one of those days.
Just to decompress.
It actually helped and I got some cleaning done but...
once again, I was awaken before 5 in the morning.
It's been happening EVERY single day, some time between 4:30 and 5:00 AM
one of the little dogs hears something and starts barking
and then 2 others join in.
They have that really HIGH PIERCING bark
and their room is just feet away from my neighbors bedroom window
and directly below my bedroom.
Once those three start barking, then the whole herd goes crazy.
and I think I'm about to lose my mind in that moment.
That moment: dormiveglia.


and this is why I bought:

NO BARK Collar Citronella Spray Anti-Bark collar for Dogs Kit - Safe, Effective, and Humane Dog Barking Control collar - here

  • Eliminates or significantly reduces nuisance barking
  • Sprays harmless citronella burst whenever dog misbehaves
  • Works with all dogs at least 6 months old and 6 pounds and up
  • Training is instantaneous and painless
I plan on trying it this Saturday.
I've bought three and they are NOT returnable.
Wish us luck.
