November 9, 2011

This blog needs a new look. (Hey, Allison - start thinking for me.)

A lot has happened since I last posted. Maggie, my sweet beagle mix, died on June 29. She was 14 years old. She was diagnosed with kidney failure mid March, so I'm very thankful that I had those last 3 months with her. She was the best. I still haven't put up her food and water bowls. We will get another dog someday, I'm just not sure when.

I was pregnant. At 18 weeks in, the baby's heart stopped beating. On what would have been our 19th week, I gave birth to a little girl, Ruthie, 7 inches long, 6.2 ounces. Even though I have my sad moments, I remember how happy she made me. I really don't know what I would do without all the things the hospital gave us - a little bracelet with her name, an outfit, a tiny bear, her birth announcement, and a blanket. That blanket especially. Even though it all had to do with genetics and chromosomes, I decided that some changes needed to be made.

And the biggest change is that I've gone part-time at work. Seriously, the only thing that gets me out of bed, is knowing I only have to be there 5 hours! I work in retail and I'm so tired of it. I've been there 16 years. Not only does the company not value the work I do, but according to my last review, the managers don't even recognize what I do. Enough about work - yuck.

Ok, enough sadness for today! Blogging's all right, I'm going to try to keep it up whether anyone is reading or not. Plus, since I get off work at noon everyday, it gives me something other than housework to do!
