To all you parents out there. Let this be a lesson to you. I think this little girl could use some training up. What do you think? :)

You Learn Something New Every Day!

I love my job! I actually get paid to do something I'm good at, to have fun, to be around people I love, and to try new things.

Today we were filming a video to promote a new fundraising initiative we're launching at work. Over the last couple of weeks I was part of writing the script and then today I was assigned to be the script supervisor on set. What an experience to try new things. I've helped my cousin Robert on the the set before as his PA, but this was a little different.

Trying new things can reveal a lot about yourself and I feel like I explored a new side of myself today, and I liked it. It was a total blast.

For the rest of my life I want to continue learning and growing. I don't ever want to get stuck in one place. Today was a good start.

All Dogs Go to Heaven?

I recently decided, I don't like pets. Don't get me wrong, I like animals. I'm just not a fan of pets. There's a difference. I say this as someone who has always had pets. In fact, growing up, there was never a time when I didn't have a cat, a dog, a bird, a rabbit, a rat, fish, chickens, or a pet squirrel. But the more I see how convenient and easy it is NOT to have pets, the more I feel like I can do without. Well, at least I thought so until the other day.

I read a facebook post my cousin put up. He's been extremely sad the past few days because his dog died. Rona was one of those special pets. The kind that don't come along often. You know, the one pet that has everything, the great personality, smart wit, sweet demeanor, yet protective personality. Rona really was one of a kind.

After reading my cousin's post, I was driving home from work and this precious pup started to cross the street, a car turned and headed in the dog's direction and the dog retreated staying in the crosswalk the entire time! I had to admit, it was one of the cutest things I've ever seen.

The next day, again on my way home from work, I watched in horror as a cute, but scruffy, malnourished dog ran into the middle of a crowded intersection where cars speed and accidents happen in abundance. The dog ran in what seemed to be circles in the middle of the street and was inches from being hit, several times. I held my breath and couldn't move. I wanted to take that dog home. But I couldn't get to it in time. No it didn't die, but it ran away before I could get to it.

I thought I was over the whole pet thing, now I'm not so sure!

Alarm Realizations

My alarm clock went off at 6 a.m. like it does every morning. And I had to laugh...I was waking up to, "Grease is the word, is the word, is the word..."

Then I came to a sudden realization. For as long as I can remember, I've preferred to wake up to the radio rather than the beeping of an alarm. But I can't think of one time that I can actually remember what song it was that I woke up to.

I guess I'm so out of it when I wake up in the morning that I don't even process what song is on and I go into auto pilot and turn my alarm off. Strange. I guess it's kind of like dreams you have that you can't remember. Until one night you have a dream that you do remember. And for some reason, this morning, I woke up to grease!
