Nothing to Sneeze At

I was raised in a household where if someone sneezes, you respond with a blessing. "God Bless you" or just plain old "Bless you" will do. I sneezed on my dog today. He's usually sitting on top of me somehow, either sitting directly next to me underneath my left shoulder, on top of my legs if I have them propped up on my footstool or the most intrusive position of all, sprawled out on top of my lap in direct conflict with my attempts to work on the computer. I don't mind it very much, I've gotten used to shifting my body around to fit in all 10 lbs of his little Minpin frame. Only problem is I'm really sensitive to dirt and pollen. Every time he goes outside to potty, he brings back a ton of nasal irritants to shove in my face.

Needless to say, I would never kick him out of his little nook. Some things in life are just worth sneezing about.

"I survived"

That's just it, need I say more? Three more hours until I've got a martini in my hands.

Today's Obssession

Thanks to the recession, Herve Leger Dresses are at an absolute bargain. I can't wait to get a hold of one of these! Around this time last year, you couldn't find one under $800.00. I love Herve Leger because his dresses celebrate the curves of a woman's body and any woman any size can look great in one of them. Just be sure to keep the rest of the ensemble (jewelry, hair, make-up) simple and sleek. This dress doesn't need a supporting cast.

Thought of the Day

What a weekend.

Brown Eyes and I went back to his college town to visit some of his old college buddies. We had a lot of fun acting like immature college kids drinking and watching sports. I still had in the back of my mind all of the work I had to complete tonight before my journal deadline tomorrow afternoon, but I feel like the time I've spent this weekend was worth the work.

Life is different now. I miss my closest friends I lost contact with last fall dearly, but with all things in life you have to know when to let go and when to hold on. You can't force people to do things they don't want to do.

Mom is getting sicker. I can't tell you how hard it is to call her and hear about the myriad of physical problems she is experiencing. To make things worse,  she keeps reminding me that she won't be around forever.

There's a verse in the Bible that says there is a season for all things- a time for peace and a time for war. A time to laugh and a time to cry. A time to live, and a time to die. I just hope that time can hold otu a little longer. There are so many things I want to share with my mom before the seasons change for good.

Halfway done with law school.

I have another year left before graduate. Life is good right now, I'm working on my journal note, spending time with my boyfriend and getting to know myself better and better each day.

Thought of the Day

I need a nap.

Couldn't come home in time to save the pup from peeing in his crate yesterday due to the snowstorm. I gave him a bath as soon as I got home. Now I'm exhausted and ready to take a nap. I miss Brown Eyes already....

Happy New Year

And may I add Happy New blog format?

New Year's Resolutions

  1. Be Happy- I'm going to just go with the flow and let life take the wheel
  2. Exercise consistently- I'd like to make sure I keep working out, at least four days a week for 30 minutes

That's pretty much it. I'm not big on New year's resolutions, so I try to keep them brief and reasonable. Hope you like the new blog format, be on the look out for more changes.

New Manolos,

P. Manolos
