So, I’m sure everyone knows by now, we had a pretty big jolt today… A nice 5.4 earthquake. I was at work, and I thought a semi truck slammed into the office. Most of the office pretty much hauled ass to get out of the building while it was rolling… I have been thru the Northridge quake, and the whittier narrows quake in 87, and multiple more smaller quakes, all of my life. I can honestly say, they really don’t bother me much. My chair at my desk started rolling around, and my monitor fell over as well. I just kinda sat there and held on to the desk just waiting it out.
So today I went back to read some of the first posts that I made… it’s been a year. WOW. I have actually stuck with something for an entire year… THAT kids, is a very nice accomplishment for me. I procrastinate.. like sooo bad. In just about every aspect of my life. I admit, I am not the best at “finishing” ALL of the things I start either. (ok, that sucked to admit that out loud.. ) So, the fact that I am still doing this for a whole year, gives me a little hope. I do have ONE single, no wait TWO goals that I need to get moving on… I have soo many ideas for one of them, but in order to get to work on that one, I need to accomplish a different goal first. I’ve talked about it before, and yes, I am STILL procrastinating.. UGH, this is depressing. Ok, so shit, I’ve GOT TO DO SOMETHING. I need to get off my ass and do this shit already!! I am so content with my life right now, I’m L~A~Z~Y. I hate lazy..
Wow. Things are starting to calm down some. I just got back from going to the east coast for my grandfathers funeral. I spent a LOT of time with my immediate family. There are reasons we all don’t get along together. Too many, but I digress. It felt like a very long trip. We killed Bambi. I know they do a LOT of hunting out there, but we did it with the rental car. Hit a deer. No idea where it came from, but it was the BIGGEST deer I have EVER seen.
Today is a sad day. My “Pop” died last night.. I’ve mentioned before that life is too short… We all too often take for granted people in our lives. I remember when my grandmother died… one of the (if not MOST) difficult times of my life. Growing up, I was always with my grandparents. They lived right behind my folks.. Every weekend we would go over to their house to eat breakfast. Not just any breakfast.. I’m talkin “COUNTRY” breakfast.. Fried eggs, fried apples, biscuits, fried potatoes, the BEST gravy you could EVER imagine. Oh, forgot jimmy dean sausage patties and tons of bacon.. This is what I had every weekend.. (damn no wonder I’m so LARGE!! HAHA) Anyway, some other feasts they would make were things like chicken ortega, one of my favorites: Chicken n Dumplins.. Homemade dumplins.. Wow.. that was soo good. After breakfast, all us grandkids would go climb in their bed and watch Little Rascals.. Saturdays were good. 😀
Well, I got me a new dog. Well a puppy really. My dog needed a buddy.. like bad. I’ve come to realize my dogs problem. When she was 6 mo’s old, kids tied her up to a pole and cut the shit out of her. Stabbed her… required stitches. Fast forward 2 years, and she’s great.. She does very well with me and the kid.. kinda protective.. which is cool. But here’s the deal. If she is “tied up”, and people come around, she goes APE SHIT. Seriously, acts like she wants to rip their heads, hands, arms, legs off. No joke. BUT. If I don’t have her tied up, I can have people over in the backyard, and she’s great. Licks them to death.. Poor dog.
