From the Desk of....

Many people can discribe me as many things.
A animal lover, someone who will stand up for the voiceless and will gladly give up her food to give a dog or cat or guinea pig or horse some kibble or grain of feed. You would not be wrong in lableing me as an animal lover. Sometimes i consider the comfort of my dog or cat over that of my own. My dog will never go outside without a coat if I feel like I can not go outside without one... My cat will never be left to fend of her self if i decide I want to go on vaction...she will always have a pet sitter...My guinea pigs travel with me or they stay with my loving man.. And my rescues never go without a meal or ever miss a floor time.
A girlfirend it may be true that me and John have been an item "forever" but that does not make anything about us, part of me. It is true that i will drop anything for him to be at his side if he ever needs me. It is also true that if he is ever sick or hungry or in pain...i legitimatly feel his pain. If john is angery or upset, I am angry and upset. If he is happy...i litterlly can not resist the erge to giggle or hug him even if i have had the worst day. He is my other half, but that does not define me. I am my own person with or without john. I will not heistate to say that he makes me a better person, because he does. But i was already pretty awesome on my own. Here is why. I have a loving heart. I will be there of anyone that needs help, not just friends...even strangers. I am naturally a big sister type. I want to help, i want to be supportive, and I want to help you up. I am forgiving, even people who have torn my heart out have gotten second chances from me, sometimes even third chances. I am protective, you will never feel as if you are not safe with my word. I am what i say i am and what i say i will do. I am not however a doormat for you to whipe your feet on while you transition through life. Over the years i have grown to understand that my need to shelter and protect and help people has gotten me hurt. Not everyone can be fixed, and not everyone that wants help will help themselves. Ive learned the hardest lesson here. How to let go.
Ive let go of friends, family, and oppertunities that have hurt,betrayed, and used me. So here is the deal, i will always be the first to rech out and offer you my hand. If you chose to take it know that ill be there for you step by step. But the second you choose to pull me down with you, thats when I will let you go. Friendship is offered to everyone I meet. Not everyone will take it. Ill continue to be me.
So...Definations? Are they really true?
Am I really an amimal lover if i eat meat and enjoy hunting?
Am i really a "girlfriend" if i refuse to let the relationship define me?
Yes. Because I am me, I define my defintions, i define me.

Fall gives birth to Winter....

It's offically cold ... my bank account is reflecting my Disney World Trip being almost paid off. Today my house smells like beef and potatos in a tomato base... My crock pot it working and making food as I make money. Its been a long week with close to 40 hours Pet Store and 35 hours City... This paycheck is going to rock however it was very hard earned. Ill keep the fire lit under it but this week I don't think ill work anything over extra at the city. Sunday will be the first complete day off I have had in a month and a half. I don't even know what to do with a full day off other then hang out with my dog and maybe go for a hike.

My bike is getting closer and closer to being repaired. I need new tires and tubes and me and the molle mobile will be ready for the road again.

Molle straped into the new bike pulled cart!
Until then I have a derby skills test to train for. Laps are my primary concern seeing as I am very out of shape. This week I get to hit up two derby practices! Sunday and Tue! I am in the process of washing my pads for this week as I have already got them all stinky!

Today I have one video shoot at 3:30, and then I get to go home, swap out my closets winter to summer, do laundry and reset the garage with all the summer gear! Here is to hoping that I will have enough storage bins and enough hangers for my many coats!

I LOVE WINTER. Prepaire for happy.
