Can you believe it's almost the middle of October already? I feel like time just flies by. When I was a kid my dad used to say that time got faster when you got older. I never believed him until the last couple years. It seems like it goes by so fast you don't have time to stop and reflect about what's going on in your life. Maybe that's just me.

This past week I've been sick with a cold. It started in my throat, moved it's way up to my sinuses and now has set up camp in my lungs. I always have lung problems when I get sick, so now I can expect to have a cough for a few weeks. I don't mind being sick so much; of course it sucks. But I hate working in health care and being sick. I feel like my patients are disgusted and appalled that I would come to work sick, and work with them, who are usually even sicker. Of course I take extra precautions to avoid contaminating anyone, but usually people look at me like I have the plague when I cough near them.

I haven't posted a picure of me in awhile, so here is one of me. Sick. With dogs. In my pajamas.

Hopefully the cute doggy faces will deter you from looking at my puffy one. Nice hair too.

Paul is still working at the Casino and liking it. He drives a golf cart around and plays with computers. What's not to like? Stella turned 8 months old this month and Kobe turns 9 next month. Kobe continues to pretend that he hates Stella, but every once in awhile they'll play together. And by play I mean Stella will knock Kobe onto his back and he will struggle to figure out how to get away.

At the end of this month Paul and I are going to a Halloween party themed "Pimps and Hos." We do not have costumes yet, but I will be sure to post them so everyone can see how ridiculous we look.

My mom is upset that I didn't post any pictures of our garden this summer. I can take a picture of what it looks like now, but it's pretty ugly. This years harvest was quite modest, but tonight I'm making eggplant parmesan with the eggplants and some of the tomatoes we grew!

Speaking of dinner, the husband will be home soon. Better get my apron on!


  1. lol pimps and hos, nice! I can't wait to see those pictures!

    I'm sorry to hear you have been sick. I seem to get a nasty lung infection every Fall or Spring seasonal change.

  2. I miss your posts!

    Hilarious about Kobe. Bisket likes Rudy only 10% of the time. Rudy likes Bisket 100% of the time. As they get older though, they seem to find comfort in each other when we are not around to give them attention. Hopefully something similar will happen with Stella and Kobe.
