Makin’ A List…

A year has gone by since I made my List of 45 Things.  I still need to update it (which I will do in the next few days) but I’m pleased at how many things I got to cross off.  (Yay Me!) The bad part about this, is that I need to make a new list.  A new and improved list of forty SIX things!  This is no easy task.  (Honestly there are some things on last years list that just make me laugh…why on earth would I want to make myself an apron?

If you happen to have some wonderful ideas of things I should do in my 46th year of life…please let me know!

In the meantime…go check out my article about how we came to bring our sweet Sammy home with us.  I don’t know that it’s a tear-jerker for anyone else, but I bawled  as I wrote it.  (A great way to scare your kids!)

Go ahead…you know you want to!  It’s called Puppy Love, and you can find it right HERE

    Thanks for the challenge. I will think on it. I don’t know that I’m ready to share some of my goals right now.

    And thanks for your support and encouragement. It means a lot to me. 🙂

    Puppy Love is a beautiful post. It reminds me of a book that my kids have, that I still find it impossible to read without getting a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. It is called ‘Let’s Get A Pup!’ by Bob Graham and it is beautiful.

  3. In your 46th year? Laugh a lot, love even more. Enjoy the ride… but don’t make an apron! There are much better things to do with your time 🙂

    Such a sweetie. I’m glad you found that you had room in your heart for him and that you two have bonded so well.

    Susie, I don’t think I could EVER suggest things for another woman’s ‘list’. I think you should follow YOUR heart and do those things that bring you joy. Now that I’m 58, I’ve done a good bit of what was on my list — wanted to go to Alaska and see whales; visit Italy — haven’t para-sailed, yet, though. 🙂
    I had to laugh about your upsetting your children by your crying while you wrote. It’s good to keep them on their toes!! 🙂

  6. Oh my! What a story!! We, too, have an 11 year old lab and it is breaking my heart each day to see him growing old…and unable to play even though he really, REALLY wants to!! He is still happy, is still eating, just cannot get around like he used to. He has lost most of his ability to move his back end. Terrible arthritis. I adopted him from our humane society when he was just 12 weeks old. He is a very special guy…always has been. I swear he can read my mind…and I his! I know one day I will have to make that very difficult and painful decision…but for now, I am enjoying each and every day that I have with my Zippo. We have two little bichons that keep him company too. Your puppy is so cute!

    Awwww, cute puppy. I’m mentally working on my list, and all my brain can come up with at this point is “coffee” which I don’t have. Would it be cheating to get 30 puppies and then add one each year?

    I think you should take a weekend and go with one of your dearest friends and do the wineries in Eastern Washington.

    That was a very touching article about Sammy and about Shelly. Our 15 year old border collie, Mia, died last January and life just isn’t the same. So, I really empathize with you. If they leave a hole in our hearts when they pass, then we know we’ve loved them enough. *sniffle….honk* (that’s me blowing my nose, sorry)

    Sammy looks like a little love and I hope he brings you many more happy memories (and us fun ancedotes to read!)
