We Are Alive!

Our internet is down in our house (temporarily), so I'm sitting in the library to tell you that I'll be back to posting as soon as our internet at home is back up.

See you soon!

The Dog Is In Trouble!

Ace and I went to church tonight, as we normally go to church on Saturday night. We stopped by the store on our way home to get some dog food and gas. When we got home, Guillermo was not in the back yard, like he should have been. Instead, he had wandered off (the people who mow our lawn keep forgetting to shut our gate, which is how he was able to get out). He came back home briefly (while we were gone), but our neighbor wasn't sure he was ours, so she accidentally shooed him back off. He was found by another neighbor who stayed with him while Ace (and the first neighbor's husband) went and picked him up. He's back home now, no worse for being gone (he got to play fetch with some guy for the entire time he was gone). But, he is in trouble.

I don't have anything else to say, I'm just relieved that he's home and was well watched while we were gone.

Finding My Voice

Sometimes... No, to be fully honest, most of the time, I have no idea what I'm going to write before I start. Sometimes, I change what my sentence will say while I'm typing it (if you see typos, that is a good indication of a switch in that sentence). And I don't know exactly what this blog is about. Since I'm not constantly talking about getting pregnant (much to at least some people's relief, I'm sure) and since I don't have kids yet, this is definitely not a mommy blog. Mostly, it's a place for me to say what I want to say with only my own sense of what is too personal stopping me from revealing anything, which is nice, but it leads to some posts that sound odd next to other posts. And I'm fine with that. It works. I'm unique, quirky, odd in my own way. But sometimes, I would like there to be some better flow to what I have to say.

I'm talking to the dog again. He was forgiven before the day was over. I'm frustrated that he gets into the trash, especially since I don't know how to stop it. But he truly likes us and tries hard to be good. So I can't stay mad at him for too long.

I'm going to keep trying to find my voice on here, until I find one I'm comfortable with (Ace could probably agree that I'm doing that off-line as well). Thank you for sticking with me.

The Tulsa World

There are times that Ace and I get our local paper (The Tulsa World, not a small newspaper, but we live in not so small town). Mostly, we get the paper when we can buy it for $8 a month. It's a good deal, I get my comics delivered to my house everyday and some crossword puzzles to do too. Ace gets whatever he wants to read from it, which isn't much usually. When they aren't running this special (which you have to pay for in advance), we refuse to get the paper and usually just buy the Sunday paper each week (which works out to $6 a month for one day a week). The main reason why is that the nice $96 a year bill goes up to $212 a year, and we refuse to pay that much. I can buy crossword puzzle books and read comics online (which is definitely at my house). We just wait until they come back by our house with that deal again.

In other news, it's raining again. I'm ready for some sunny days, but I don't think the weather forecast is promising me that anytime real soon. This means that Guillermo will only want to go outside when he really has to go to the bathroom (and we'll have to trick him out for church tonight). On the plus side, we don't have a paper getting soaked in the yard (our subscription ran out in August).

Well, my lunch is ready, so I'm going to go now.

Why I'm Not Talking to Guillermo

Last night, I had problems falling asleep. In fact, I ended up getting back up out of bed 2 times last night. So, this morning, I got up and told Ace that I wished him well at work, but I was going back to bed because I was up so late last night (he wasn't surprised, I think I woke him up the second time I got up). So, he goes to work not too terribly much later and I get up within an hour of him leaving. Guillermo decided to get into the trash while I was still in bed. I had trash to clean up, a dog to stick outside, and I'm still upset with him.

It didn't help that his hair gets everywhere, including inside my juice last night. Not that I would have stopped talking to him about that, because he didn't actually put them in the glass I was drinking out of. In fact, I think it was at least partially my fault. His hair is on a blanket that I cover myself up with (his hair is on almost everything) and my cup ended up under the blanket briefly last night.

I know have an e-mail address set up for this blog, so if you feel the need to say something, but don't want to post it in the comments, send your e-mail to and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

I would also like to remind you that if you haven't done so yet, I would like you to add your name to the map to let me know what city you live in (it's a world wide map, so you have no excuses).

I'm going to go. I have to get ready for a chiropractor's appointment (which mostly means socks and shoes need to be put on my body).

Last CD Played: the second disk of Garth Brooks' Double Live album

Have You Ever Been on TV: not that I know of.

Thing You're Wearing: white socks (I'm wearing other things than that, but thing was singular so I went with one article of clothing)

As an aside, insulting your spouse does not lead to sex. Making fun of your Kama Sutra DVD does.

The Ultimate Gift

Today, I reread The Ultimate Gift. Not exactly a hard thing to do, because the first time I read it was to Ace on the way to and from his aunt's funeral (it was good, and seemed rather fitting). It was nice not to have to read it out loud. After seeing the movie just a few days ago (3, to be exact), it was interesting to see what had changed. After finishing the book, I noticed that the author is local to Tulsa.

I went through the tubs Ace had packed (he packed up most of the books, including The Ultimate Gift) yesterday. I pulled out a few books (less than one row on my bookcase) and quite a few CDs, mostly from our church. I think that I have enough sermons to listen to to fill up all of my waking hours for the next 2 weeks (possibly even 3 weeks) without repeating anything.

Well, I'm going to go. Ace and I have been discussing having sex, and I think I should jump on that.
