I am full of win!

I pulled off straight A's in school this semester. You know you are a geek when you get a 99, 99, and 97 in college and get a little mad at yourself for the 97.

I've got my sights set on a set of magna cum laude graduation tassels. Go me!

Maximus' Urn

It's still not with me yet- the maker had some issues with the glaze so she is going to make another. I should have it home by what would have been his 9th birthday next month. Having Shelby around does help take my mind off of him, but I still burst into tears at random times. Yesterday, while cleaning out the front hall closet I decided it was time to let go of his last cone of shame. I cut out a small aquare of the baby blue plastic to hold onto and burst into tears. Thankfully I have an awesomely emphathetic little boy who rubbed my back, gave me hugs, and told me it would be ok. And I know it will be one day...

Scensty fundraiser for TABR

Hi all, I am fostering a dog for the Texas American Bulldog Rescue (Shelby). They are a small rescue with limited funds and have had a few major unexpected surgeries that have left them with considerable vet bills. They are currently participating in fundraising with Scentsy.

They are great for pet owners, parents and anyone else that loves great smells. This is perfect for Christmas shopping and 20% goes to the rescue. Go to lauraslovelysmells.scentsy.us and find our open party (on the left hand side of the screen) and click on the buy link next and shop away. Please consider this for your Christmas and holiday shopping.

Most importantly please forward and share this with your friends, family, and co-workers.

Thank You and Merry Christmas!

3 for the road

This weekend Becks and I took part in a transport to save 3 female boxers from a high kill shelter in Louisiana. Their final destination is cold and snowy Minnesota! It was a nice day, albeit windy across the great plains of Oklahoma, but uneventful. Well, except for everyone clamoring to sit on Beckett's lap!

Today the tree comes down from the attic along with all of our stockings. Except he won't be here and now I have a stocking with his name embroidered on it. It would simply be wrong to hang it. So, now I am off to search for new stockings because I just can't deal. I might not break down in tears every day, but I miss Maximus every single day. Almost 2 months later, it still doesn't feel real and it still isn't fair.
