I want to get a new tattoo. Just a small one. It would be my fourth and my final tattoo. They are all very discreet and meaningful to me. I just need to find someone who can draw what I have in my head. It is a little beyond my own artisitic skills.

Kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty, gerbil, mice...

What do I do when I have the flu and am stuck at home sick for 11 straight days? I take pictures of all of my furry little friends! Check them out!

I'm in love with the world through the eyes of a girl....

Having a daughter is the best thing I have ever done. She is the best! That's all I wanted to say. :-)

Why I Heart V-Day...

I know a lot of people don't like this very commercial holiday but I love it. Even when I was single or wasting my time in relationships with people I was not in love with, I still loved the day.

It is one of the few holidays I can stomach. It doesn't have the pressure that x-mas or NYE have for me. I like it's simplicity. One person, one gift and all the rest is gravy.

I just like the idea of having one day specifically set aside to celebrate love. I know all of the old arguments, "We should celebrate love EVERY day!" yada yada... Yeah well we SHOULD do a lot of things but we don't so that is why it works to set aside a specific day, so neener!

It is a holiday where you can plan a nice dinner but you are not expected to juggle the 500 other places you need to visit so "everyone is together" There is no stress of picking out gifts for people that you know they will hate, or running out of money because of buying things for so many people. For me it is a holiday just as contrived as all other holidays without all of the added stress. I dig that. I also dig the fact that you can get chocolate for the week following for next to nothing on 75% off close out!

If I had to vote I would get rid of Christmas and Thanksgiving and keep V-Day and Birthdays. (But I would keep the paid days off of course!)

Nice to meet you. I am your ghost.

I was dreaming about the house I grew up in last night. I have been dreaming about this place since my dad sold it when I was 18. It is crazy. My dreams about it are always so vivid that sometimes I think if I were to go visit the new owners they might recognize me as the person who has been haunting it for the last several years.
I decided if I ever win a lottery I will buy that house back and just let it sit there empty. Maybe I will let some single parent with too many kids live in it for free. I don't ever want to live in Eagle River, Alaska again, but I want to own that house. My family built it together before the family fell apart. It is the last standing symbol of what once was once upon a time. The place haunts me as much as I haunt it. I think it needs to be in my family.

In my dream there was heavy snowfall. I was sitting by the window watching it snow. Watching the plows go through the neighborhood creating the high banks.

I woke up and it was snowing here.
