a goodish, baddish day

Yesterday i was excited to watch the inaguartion of Barack Obama, and I was photographing images off of my flat screen TV like a nerd, but I don't care.

Meanwhile, my big dog had gone to the vet for routine bloodwork prior to dental cleaning.


I was shocked to get a call from the vet telling me one of his tests came back showing an elevated "something"cell count that was an indicator of bone marrow cancer (rarely) or kidney tumors. I generally don't believe in extreme measures to prolong the life of a dying animal, and after several phone calls back and forth from the vet, to me, to my husband, blah blah...we decided to just let him be and keep him as happy as we can.

He's sort of a big dog, and he is 8 years old, but I felt like someone slammed a door in my face and punched me in the chest. We sucked it up enough to take a bunch of pictures, in the hopes that some turn out to be good, and even had some laughs doing that, but it's all bittersweet.

i love him and i'm going to miss him

i figured out how to make this...

I decided to give my online identity fresh look for the new year. I am proud of this result, as I am not much of a techie whiz at all, so it is all the trial and error method for me. Ususally months later I come across the easy way to do what I was trying to do. I seem to spend alot of time trying to re-invent the wheel.
