Doggy Daycare!!

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I used to write some blog posts about me going to doggy daycare. I haven’t been there in MONTHS. That is my special place I went to last week! I decided to start helping again (depending on how my body is) and boy has that place changed! And there are so many dogs that are new! Unfortunately Storm hasn’t had an updated Bordetella vaccine so I am not able to bring her with me yet.

It was pretty quiet the day I went so I don’t have much for pictures. They are also┬ánot the greatest shots (I miss my iPhone ­čś×) but it’s a start!

Stay….

Oh man, I am so far behind in the blogging world! I have been trying to keep up-to-date with everyone else’s blog and while also completely ignoring my blog. So pleeeeeeeease know that I not hatin’ on anyone–I love you all!:)

The last month I have been dealing with constant nausea, which I’m guessing is from my Lupus since this tends to happen often. It’s a bitch to get anything done when you have nausea. And if you are doing both? Forgetta’-bout it! Thankfully I didn’t have both but I still didn’t get anything done. Haha!

I went somewhere on Wednesday but I am not going to say where because I have pictures!:) So hopefully I will post that blog soon.

This morning Storm and I woke up extra early and went for a walk to enjoy the cooler temperature. I can’t believe she actually stayed in her spot so I could get this shot! I have one a little closer but I like the long range pic the best.

 

 

Have a fabulous weekend!

P.S. I bet you can barely contain your excitement of finding out where I went, huh?:)

Car Show

Recently, my┬ásister’s boyfriend’s dad found out that he has cancer. To help with costs, they put on a fundraising car show about a week and half ago. Here are some of the shots I took and none have been edited (other than cropping) except┬áone picture. I know what you’re thinking, how random this is to put up a post like this.

‘Really, cars? Where are pics of puppies?’

But cars are part of my childhood. In the summer I grew up traveling different states and going to car shows while my friends stayed home and played with their friends. I might have complained when I was younger but now am thankful for the memories I have.

I hope you enjoy the pictures!

This is a 1972 Ford pickup. Well, that is what the owner claimed based on the engine he used. Everything is made from wood (except tires, windshield, etc). It was pretty unique!

No glass for windows on doors, so hopefully you like breezy rides!:)

Yes, even the foot pedals were made of wood

My Favorite Flower

Lilacs!! When I was growing up in the country we had a line of these in our backyard. Every spring the winds would blow (as they happen to do so here) and the scent would fill our house. And they don’t last very long, just a few weeks then you have to wait another year before you could smell the relaxing scent again.

So you could imagine how happy I was to find out that my new residence had some lilac bushes!:)

 

 

 

 

Also, my mom informed me that they purchased a new lilac tree! Here is a shot from my mom’s tree!

 

I have found it is extremely difficult to replicate the lilac scent. So many products try but can never quite perfect it. Every so often I will find a product that makes me feel as if the real thing is near by and will purchase it, but that is few and far between.

Lupus and Fibromyalgia

Well, so much for trying to get blogs written for Lupus Awareness Month! Hahaha! Oh well, at least I was able to get a couple done. And that is just how a person with Lupus needs to think; if it’s not done, then it’s not done and not to fret about what did not get done that day. However, I am fully aware that this easier said than done. At times I struggle with the frustration of how to let things go and\or take one day at a time. And honestly I don’t know if I would have learned these lessons, if not for Lupus.

This month is also Fibromyalgia Awareness Month with the National Awareness Day being May 12th!

Lupus and Fibromyalgia are so similar that some days I can’t tell which disease I am dealing with. Below are some Fibromyalgia symptoms

Thank you for taking the time to read these awareness posts! And remember, knowledge is POWER!:)
