I honestly don't know why I closed my old blog page out just to re-open this new one.  I have no one who wants to keep up with what I am doing. Not that I would post often enough to keep anyone interested anyway.  All my close friends are busy with their own lives, they don't have time to spend on the computer like I do. 

And instead of doing my homework that is due tomorrow, I am writing on this stupid thing. I think I must be feeling a little lonely, bored, left out, something, maybe all the above, who knows for sure.. I sure don't!

Well, I don't really do the digital scrap booking that once consumed my life for several years.  I don't really do a lot of anything.  I thought once I moved to Arizona from Washington the weather change would help me with my aches and pains, but it has not.  Some days I think it's actually worse.

Besides having the fibromyalgia which I knew about but never had the official diagnosis until 2010, I also have arthritis and degenerative disk disease in my lower back and hips..  How fun for me!  :(  Not really, it's rather painful.  My husband was also diagnosed with the degenerative disk disease and diabetes.  The diabetes became after he was injured at work with a 3rd degree burn on his foot and became immobile for awhile and now he's not doing nearly half the amount of stuff he was before.  He does not have any insurance and won't listen to what I'm telling him about the diabetes.  I was there, right where he is, in denial.  He has two differences than I did.  his numbers are way higher than mine ever were, at 450 - 500 (normal is around 70-110) and he has someone who has been through it to help him understand and make better choices and changes to get and be healthy.

Since I last posted on a frequent basis here, I am assumed to more pets in my family.  2 cats, Twitch and Chester.  Twitch is about 1.5 yrs old, little female that is gray and white and Chester is about 1.5 yrs old that is black and white and the funniest damn cat I have ever seen.  He actually attacks (plays) with the boxers and the dogs don't do anything except wag their little nubs and do a little dance to play with him.  I never thought I'd see the day where MY boxers would get along so well with cats.

Riddle me this?  Is it possible to love your animals to much?  Is it wrong that I don't HIT my animals as a form of punishment to them,  and if you seen someone you loved dearly hitting one of your animals what would you do / say to them?

To answer my owns questions.. I don't think it's possible to love any animal to much.  I can't have kids, so my animals are like my kids.  No I don't allow them to do certain things, or misbehave to horribly but I do try to make them mind most of the time (without hitting them) I am a firm believer in not hitting an animal for any reason (unless maybe being attacked and only to fight against the animal - maybe) but as a form of punishment, I don't need to HIT my dogs or cats.. My boxers tend to get a little over happy and step on feet and it hurts because their toenails are a little long (I'm afraid I'm gonna cut to short and make them bleed everywhere) anyway, one day we were sitting in the living room at the computer desk when the dogs got excited and Copper, my name, stepped on my aunts toes.  She immediately raised her hand and started hitting him repeatedly in front of me.  I looked at her and told her if she ever hit my dogs again I would kick her out of the house and not think twice about it.  I don't hit my dogs and damn sure there will be no one else hitting my dogs.  It was only a few months later before she was out of the house (thankfully not from hitting the dogs again)  She said the way to solve the problem of the misbehaving dogs is to train them.. Well yeah, I could train them, but when no one in the house (not just here, but Washington as well) is willing to help and participate it's rather difficult to do. Anyway, the dogs seemed to do it mostly to her, once in awhile to me but not often.  Anyone else who ever came to visit just loved and doted on the dogs, never bitching about anything they did or how they acted..

Well, I guess I better get to my school work.. Gotta keep up that A I have been maintaining.  I'm on my 4th class at Rio Salado College and so far out of 3 finished classes I have had 2 A's and 1 B and the class I am taking now I am getting an A with only 6 weeks left.

One more thing, my mom is getting married this year to a guy she has known since he was 15 and she was 23 I think. Yes, a bit younger, but I think she needs that to help her feel young.  Anyway, I used to call him daddy when I was in diapers.. and now he's actually going to be my daddy.  I find that very funny.. So they are going to get married on the 4th of July (which also happens to be my wedding anniversary - going on 4 years this July)  I just want to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS TO MOM AND DAD for your engagement.  I want to wish you many wonderful years of happiness and companionship and love and laughter. You both deserve it! I love you both very much <3

Ok, now on to my homework!
