Serenity frog

This is my serenity frog: Butch.


He's been at my desk for years. He's made of onyx and I rub the groove on his back when i get stressed.


  


You know the shit's getting rough when the frog is hiding!


Smart frog!

Back to work....

Down with OPB

Ever since we moved to the Pacific Northwest 2 years ago, Jason and I have noticed that Oregonians posses an uncanny frankness (borderline rude) and incredible curiosity (borderline invasion of privacy).

I was reading an article on CNN.com today which was yakking on an on about Facebook being down for a few hours yesterday.

OMG!!!! OH NO!!!

A world without Facebook!?! What would that be like?

Well I think the OPB (Oregon Public Broadcasting) nailed it regarding what would happen without Facebook...


"Facebook down. Worker productivity rises. US climbs out of recession."

After thinking for a few minutes about the coinciding timelines of the growth of social media popularity and the recent recession, I think OPB may be on to something.

Well, back to work for me!
That's what my life without Facebook is like.

Pssssst. You should try it sometime.
It might help get rid of those voices in your head.

BTW - This is my 100th post and I'm an official Oregonian so I can say things like that!

Lovin you is easy cuz you're beautiful

I sing that song to Clancy when we have our snuggle/play time, except I change it up:

"Lovin Pooh is easy cuz he's beautiful. La-dida-dida-ladida-dida!".

I sing it in a high voice, especially the la-dida part. It makes him totally crazy!

Here's some pics that make me smile of Jason and Clancy rolling around on the bed together.

My two favorite guys...







This past Labor Day weekend marks Clancy and my 10-year anniversary!

He's 11 1/2 years-old now, but I got him from my parents when he was only 1 1/2 years-old.

I can't believe we've been together for 10 years and all of the amazing adventures we've had together!

Life has a way of making everything okay and I really believe that this little white doggie has been my savior through my darkest hours.

Even in my worst dreams, he comes tripping along to save me right before the boogie-man gets me.

Now I have two saviors and less dark hours.

I love my guys!

Oregon Zoo

Jason and I went with our camping friends to the Oregon Zoo a few weekends ago.

It was okay, but I don't think we'll be going back.

The animals seemed extremely lethargic (it was only 75 degrees outside) and the exhibits were pretty small.

I mean just look at this guy!


Poor bear!


The other animals were acting the same way or trying to force their way out.


 This is the whole group of us on the train.
The train tickets actually had "animals not visible from train" printed on them.

L-R: Kylie, Grandma Debbie, April, Krissy, Sarah, Jason


We took quite a few pictures so here is a photo album to peruse at your leisure:


Oregon Zoo, it was nice to meet you, but I don't think we'll visiting again.

Next time we'll hit up OMSI!

Me and My Shadow

It is a beautiful day here in Sunny Portland!

Clancy and I went for a walk this morning and I got some really cool shadow pictures!

Since we are almost done with sunny days here (boo), that means we're almost done with shadows!

This is what Clancy would look like if he was a Scottie!


Walking the line!


Chatting with Shadow Clancy.


All three of us!


This is just a funny picture I took last night.

"Clancies in the window"


What is the plural of Clancy anyway?

Clancies (like candies)
or
Clancys (looks like a lost apostrophe to me)

Love you pooh doggy!
