I got this dress in 2006 in hopes that one day it would fit, and that day finally came, 11 years later. This dress is a size 6, I don’t ever remember wearing a size 6, but when my father passed away I found a pair of jeans that I wore in 6th grade they were a size 6. Now lets just say that 6th grade was at least 30 years ago, but I made it! that’s all that matters. Oh, but I’m not done yet. I’m down weight wise to 165, and the goal is around 135-140. I’m not sure what size that will be, but I look forward to finding out.

The latest in my weight loss!

Why?

Why is it that families don’t work together like the Brady bunch did?

Why are we taught lies?

Why do people say that they truly love the beauty that you make, but they refuse to share it with your friends?

Why do people say I love you, and seconds later they treat you like their worst enemy?

Why do kind and loving people get stepped on?

Why mom’s be mothers, and dad’s be fathers instead of them…

Why can’t mom’s be mothers, and dad’s be fathers instead of them being people that suck the life out of their children?

Why aren’t children more protected in the world?

Why is there still sooooooooo much discrimination going on in everyday life?

Why do people feel the need to take away other peoples happiness?

Why do people feel that they have to use other people just to get ahead in this world?

Why do people have to be so totally heartless?

Why is compassion non-existent in this world today?

Why? Why? Why?

Meet Squid

One week and one day after the loss of my “Stinker boy” dog, on the evening of March 2nd, 2015, my ex-boyfriend knocked on my door. He had this beautiful little Staffordshire Boxer mix with him. He had just saved her from a bad life. She was half bald, and you could see all of her bones. For four days, I got to enjoy her warm heart, and goofy nature.

Less than three weeks later, I had her living with me, and three months after that she became a permanent member of my family. That was the early part of August; she is going to be 4 years old in September. When we were campground host, we walked about 6 miles, mostly flat, a day. Right now we do about 1.5 miles, at a 6% down grade for half of it. Thankfully, we have a 60 foot area to play Frisbee in, and when she gets to hot she can jump in her pool.

We enjoy all kids of adventures, and we go everywhere together. Well, that’s Squid. Next time I’ll tell you Mr. Kitty’s story.Mr. Kitty
