“Lay me down in sheets of linen / You had a busy day today”

I was thinking it’s been quite some time since I’ve written a moody post, but I checked and, of course, I was wrong. My posts are all about moods! I’ve been in a strange mood lately. It’s not strange to me, but I’m trying to express it in other ways. Unfortunately, it is not working as well as I expected because I feel like I’m an empty shell and just drifting through the day. Subsequently, I needed to get more than a few things off my chest.

Designer Showcase July

Instead of writing tons, I’ll just make a list. It’s in no particular order.

  1. I’m so disappointed in humanity lately that I fear the future.
  2. One of my dogs is afraid of fireworks and I wish I could help her.
  3. I want a challenge, but I don’t want to try anything new.
  4. All lives matter.
  5. I’m trying to get excited about opening a restaurant one day (long story but short insert for hubby’s benefit); however, I hate cooking and trying or inventing recipes, so I’m not sure what I’ll do.

That is it. I think. Oh, I wish I could have been a ballerina. I had to slip in my outfit somehow, but, really, that is true. Designer Showcase’s July round is out and I’m in love with More Than Ever’s Urban Ballet Dress. It’s a cool silhouette, so you don’t have to necessarily wear it with ballet shoes unless you want to be a ballerina too.

“The place where you came from ain’t there any more…”

This is a subtle part II to my last post. My husband teased me mercilessly about calling one of my posts part I, so this is a test. If he really reads my blogs, I have to use it to my advantage. 😉

Last time, I went on and on about our Chihuahuas, but only wrote specifically about Annabelle. Now, my little Loki is my first love! Both pups were rescues so I can only imagine their pasts. Loki’s foster dad was not official, but he was the one who snatched up a little, lost dog walking around in traffic. I’m so glad he saved Loki’s life because my little pup doesn’t know this, but he saved mine. When I adopted him, I was desperately in need of unconditional love. We were a match!

She thought, I have got to think. I have got to know what to do.

Now, I have my hubby and our Annabelle so it finally feels like a family. All we need is a place that I want to call home, and that is harder than it sounds because it has to be a home in Las Vegas and not my hometown Albuquerque, for now.
