change is in the air...

the last little while has been quite a lot to deal with.

i haven't felt much like keeping up with this blog with everything going on but i'm hoping to get back to it.

lots of stress, not enough time... you know, the fun stuff.

one of the things that has been constantly on my mind and really hard for me has been Baxter's health.
he has been diagnosed with cushings disease and thankfully he seems to responding well to treatment but he's not quite where the vet would like so there's still some adjusting to do with his medication. She is optimistic and pleased with his results so far but it is really hard knowing that he's not ok just yet.
I am hoping for the best but it is hard watching him get old and this has been a pretty dramatic and fast decline so i'm hoping he rebounds ok.

so send my poor old man pup some good healing vibes and cross your fingers for us :)

the rest of the stuff... well its still a work in progress... maybe i'll post about that another day.

Another not so winning day...

i'm really struggling with winners these days...

shiny silver jogging shorts? why? they weren't my size or i may have had to try them on just because i'm sure they'd be even worse on a person than the hanger.

and BAM.
for those of you that prefer gold to silver... you're taken care of.
these maybe could be ok if the right outfit happened... but i kind of despise gold for the most part so definitely not for me!

this. see through awful static crazy material paired with super scratchy non-matching lace that i cringe just thinking about rubbing on my legs as i walk. WHY? they are not only questionable looking but potentially dangerous! OUCH.

Yes. Yes I'm crazy.

ok. my phone is packed to the gills with photos. 
like over 12,000 photos.

but in the process of going through and deleting some so i can make room for my phone to be updated i found this gem from before christmas. 


best matching wrapping paper seam EVER.

Mr. Sketch for the win

fairly certain mr. sketch markers will survive the zombie apocalypse.

for real.

this marker is from when i was in grade 5 or 6. 
depends which year was new marker year for me.
ps. that was a LONG time ago

these markers still smell awesome and are coloring like new.
i would love to see a crayola marker do that. they barely last a month before they're dying a slow painful death.

i'm actually super happy i have another full box of the old ones stashed because if they're like all other things, the new ones aren't nearly as good.
plus they changed the smells. 
that seems wrong,

Bringing Kobe's blanket back to life. Finally

i did this a while ago but forgot to post it...

this was kobe's favorite blanket. it was the first bigger blanket i actually ever completed and it was almost immediately claimed by my little princess. for years it resided in her favorite basket chair and it was falling apart because i had no idea how to assemble a blanket and was told by someone to use regular sewing thread so it wouldn't show. bad idea. the threads were breaking all over the blanket and there were gaping holes everywhere. it was such a mess because it was covered in cat hair and once she was gone i just couldn't deal with it any more and stuffed it in a bag. i finally dug it out and spent an evening restitching the blanket and popped it in the wash.
its not perfect, its not super beautiful, but i was SO happy to snuggle under it on the couch once i took it out of the dryer. and chico approves too :)
so glad i finally resurrected this cozy comfy blanket.

chico kept me company on the blanket the whole time i was fixing it. must have still smelled like his buddy.
