Peach State says: RIP Precious Princess

20140715-072518-26718726.jpg
The vacant pillow bed, sitting beside my bed, is a silent reminder of my Precious Princess! The sound of her jingle pacing between the door and her bed is just an echo in the shadowy, sleepy darkness.

RIP Precious Princess!

It has been an uphill battle…my Precious Princess and Constant Shadow tried to follow me on my daily trek throughout the house but, her legs just couldn’t keep up. She would collapse, slide down or just plain fall on any surface. She couldn’t see me from a distance much less hear me. My heart just ached for her!

Sooo…Saturday night, after many tears were shed, I said my goodbyes! I rocked her and whispered in her ear. She was a sweet girl and I loved her…after all she had been there for me in every struggle and life confused situation. She never judged or talked back and was quick with a snuggle and an understanding look.

For those of you who have pets, that are more like a family member, you understand the emptiness and little reminders that fill the simplest of tasks. Just walking down the stairs with clothes I look for her…I caught myself turning to let her out, one last time, before leaving for church Sunday morning…the tears rolled down my cheeks as I found myself getting ready to set down my dessert bowl for her to enjoy. The click of her wandering through the house on the wood floors and the jingle of her collar are just memories. This may take a while to get use to…she had been part of our family for 16 years! That is a long time and our little family will never be the same without her.

We, hubby and I, wanted to tell each of the boys and asked them not to tell anyone until after we talked with our 21 year old son in the Army. “He was going to be the hardest to tell!” They practically grew up together!

20140715-075514-28514246.jpg
“This picture was the day he left, for BASIC in January!” He talked with her, very quietly, and then silently walked out the door. I remember she looked at me with these bloodshot puppy dog eyes and shook her head and then laid down. She was in the same place when I got home. He took it the hardest, of the four boys, and asked for pics. I sent him these two! I had been trying to prepare him and even stressed that she was waiting to see him after graduation from BASIC.

The tears still flow and my heart still aches…it has only been two days. But, she is no longer in pain and she can have all the chocolate she wants.

RIP Precious Princess…you will be missed!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

If I know one thing I know this…Life throws you a curve by letting the squirrels out in random bursts! It has been a week filled with ups and downs and I am so ready for a few giggles…Who Needs A Facebook Funnies Day?
Grab a cup or three of coffee and join me! I may need more due to posting is a bit difficult this morning due to cursor placements!

I don’t know about you but I don’t do before and after selfies…

20140321-074741.jpg

Sanity anyone?

20140321-075505.jpg
Supply or Demand?

When it comes to taste…I guess there is something for everyone!

( sadly the above picture was taken Tuesday here in the Atlanta area…and these people were grateful to Home Depot and the other few businesses open for a shelter from the cold!)

20140130-074455.jpgThis one just makes me cold thinking about it!

How about a few Non-Weather Funnies?

20140130-074810.jpgOops! That could be a picture of my “Precious Princess” Tuesday night!

20140130-074921.jpgDang…another mention of cold!

20140130-075012.jpgSnow and ice on the right…60’s and 70’s on the left..Here I am “Stuck in Georgia with you! ( sorry just humming while I type!)

Coughing…scratchy throats…constant blowing of the nose… These symptoms are running ( excuse the pun) rampant on my FB page. It seems to be all anyone is really talking about…unless you add the weather! So I will share the few funnies I have in this

Peach State says: Just Feels Like a Facebook Funnies Kind of Day!

20140109-075019.jpg
After a great and slightly over the top practice, till almost 10 PM last night, with the often talked about cohorts in crime I was wide awake and refreshed. It felt like forever since our last practice due to the holiday schedule and the semi-slapstick comedy routine picked up right where it left off. The remnants of this wonderful evening are still with me this morning…except for the wide awake part! Have no fear…coffee is being made as we speak!
“Done! I even took time to grab a yogurt for breakfast!” Everything is going according to plan and it…

Just Feels Like a Facebook Funnies Kind of Day!

With all of the extreme winter weather you can imagine the FB posts that have been showing up…here are a few:

20140109-080924.jpgGlobal warming is the deviation from below freezing to just above freezing!

Sorry I pressed the wrong button…now back to Facebook Funnies!

20140109-081928.jpgMy favorite is the stashed empty rolls left behind when the roll is actually replaced!

20140109-082318.jpgI had something really incredible to capture this funny but for some reason I just can’t remember it right now…maybe later!

Blog Worthy Award Winner #2:

20140109-082540.jpgI laughed so loud at this one that my hubby inquired…I shared it with him and he just looked confused! I don’t know what was funnier…the pic or my hubby’s reaction!

The next few are…well, I will let you decide!:

20140109-082844.jpgIt’s just a tiny fish saying Hello!

20140109-082954.jpgSelfie: one of the new words of the past year!

20140109-083045.jpgAnd then she said…”At least I have a job!”

20131207-093722.jpg
I had to start today with my first Blog Worthy Award Winner!
I am presently working on my third oversized cup of coffee this chilly December morning and I am glad to report that my hubby made it out the door with a smile and no cross-sharp-toned-thoughts-or-words were present….this morning!
What a week! I am also glad to announce that all…”Did I say ALL of the Christmas Shopping was completed yesterday! And about that…I am so sorry that I was preoccupied and forgot to post my Funnies so without further adieu…

Apologies…Facebook Funnies Have Arrived!

The same theme seemed to radiate throughout many of my friends this week…just wait until you see:

Alright…Relax and take a sip of…

20131207-095437.jpg
I can think of something else that would be great flowing out of that faucet….ESPRESSO!

20131207-095659.jpg
So I guess my 20 year old is once again “My Favorite”!

20131207-095845.jpg
Typically I can shower, dress, put on my make-up, fix a commuter cup of coffee, let the dog in and out, check Facebook …..etc all before my hubby can shower and get dressed. Can I get my medal now?

20131207-100221.jpg
Alright…I think this mom needs to call my friend’s plumber!

Next we will find the group of friends that are Whovians:

20131207-100648.jpg
Yep…that’s our little dance!

20131207-100739.jpg
And the ornament hanging right next to that one is a Sonic Screwdriver!
