Change is in the air

Holy shit I have missed you guys!  Things have definitely been crazy in my little corner of Oklahoma!!  So many changes and new experiences lately that have kept me almost completely away from my computer.

As you may remember, I was moving into an apartment on my own last time I updated.  Well, I love my little apartment!  It's not completely mine yet, Matt is staying with me until he can find a place.  He and Roxi want/need a backyard.  Yep, he's taking Roxi.  She's basically his dog so I'm okay with it.  I love my baby girl to death, but she's such a daddy's girl it's not funny.  Tank is staying with me.  He loves his mommy more than anything, other than tearing into things of course!

Unfortunately, Matt and I are no longer a couple.  Things have been rough between us lately.  The reasons are a story for another time.  We are still very close and I still love him very much.  We are currently trying to work things out.  We both have some individual things that we need to work on before we can work on fixing things between us.  I will always love him, no matter what happens.  I do hope we can work things out, but only time will tell.

On a lighter note, Tank and Roxi have a new little sister!  And by little, I mean miniature, as in miniature schnauzer..  That's right, I got ANOTHER dog, haha.  Tank will need a playmate when Roxi leaves, and one of my good friends had a papered puppy that she could no longer take care of.  Her name is Cleopatra, Cleo for short.  She answers to Little Bit and Spaz.  She's the most energetic dog I have ever seen.  I swear she never stops!  She thinks she's big shit and runs the household.  Roxi will occasionally put her in her place, but mostly ignores her.  Tank loves having someone who loves to play and he can push over.  Her attitude and her black coat is how she got her name.  She is very independent but loves to be in my lap so that she is taller than the other two.  I have to say my favorite thing about her is what her bark sounds like when she wants my attention.  She sounds human!  Kinda like on Fievel Goes West when they are teaching the cat to bark.   It's adorable!  She is a little ankle biter though, which is going to be hard to break her of.

Meet Miss Cleo, my newest fur baby.
Doesn't she look stubborn and spoiled?  That's cause she is!  She's not too happy because she had to have a bath tonight.  Her legs are shaved at the moment, making her look like a poodle, because she had a scare the other night and had to go to the vet.

In other news, I am being trained as a phlebotomist at work now.  It's really exciting!  I've been told my attitude has greatly improved since I started the training, which is nice, but I didn't know until recently that I was being perceived as having a bad attitude.  I love my job and always have.

Halloween is closing in on us.  One of my favorite days of the year.  Not sure what I'm doin other than dressing up, we'll figure out the little details later.  I'm going to be Jessica from the season finale of True Blood.  If you haven't seen it, think sexy little red riding hood with fangs.  I'm really excited.  I'm going to dye my hair black with a red tint.  It should be really awesome.  What are your plans?

I have many stories to tell from the last month or so, but those can wait.  What have you been up to?  Anything new around the 'sphere?

I'm so happy to be back!!




So happy you're back! We've missed you!
