Summer has been interesting.  Having two pups in the house is more work than when I had two babies in da house!  LOL  But, oh so worth it.  The puppies I mean.  Verdict is still out on the children.  Hahahaha.. okay, I kid.  Teenagers.. gotta love them.  Most of the time.  Rayne (black German shepherd) is now 6 mos. old, and Jasper (Anatolian shepherd) is 3 1/2 mos. And..  my daughter Jasmine below is 16.  Jasper is her new fur baby.  :)

We're driving to Jasper, Arkansas.... to pick up this little guy!  Many of you know about Logan's passing.  Very sad for all of us, and we miss him. He'll always be in our hearts. I've decided we're just dog people, and we just can't be without dogs in our house.  We have Rayne, our five month old German Shepherd, but we're so used to having two, that we've been searching for a new lil boy.  My daughter fell in love with Anatolian Shepherds.  Unfortunately NO ONE IN ILLINOIS seems to breed them.  So off we go tomorrow night to Arkansas for a road trip to pick up our pup. We should get there Saturday morning!

And she loves him right back. Is there anything else?  I don't think so.  :D

We had to put our Boxador to sleep today.  He was 13 years old, had cancer, and the past couple of days had been deteriorating quickly.  He'd stopped eating, and could barley get up.  He was a rescue dog about eleven years ago, days away from being euthanized when my brother adopted him, and then gave him to us shortly thereafter.  He was one of the best dogs I've ever had. Today my brother said, remembering the day he adopted Logan,  "He chose me."  We're all pretty upset, as last September we had to put Logan's companion,  our dog Hallie to sleep.  It's hard losing our fur babies.  But the joy and unconditional love they gave us will never be forgotten.

I'm so sorry.. I've been having brain farts all week.  I hope you had a wonderful day!

A new puppy, a new car, a broken finger that I got by being a big dork and smashing it in a door, and stomach flu. What more could a girl want?

My old car was bleeding me.  It was paid for, but in recent months I've spent more than the monthly car payment just to keep fixing whatever new thing was wrong.  The last straw was when the engine light went on, and I had to take it in to get it fixed, spending over $200. The month before that was over $300 for a different problem. There was more work that needed to be done, but  I was thinking.. um.. NO.  I'm not doing this, and I don't want to be driving anything unreliable.  So off to Carmax I went.  Here's the new baby.  A 2008 Mazda 3 Hatchback.

And, I think my older dog Logan is finally getting used to the new pup, Rayne... either that, or he just wants to use her as a pillow.  (She's only 3 months old.. yeah, she's going to be huge!)  She's always wanting to play with him, but he's 13 now, and usually doesn't have much interest in childish games.. you can almost hear him scoff and think, "Go away, child."

Back to work on Monday.

Some of you may remember that this past October, we had to put my ten  year old Belgian Tervuren to sleep because she was very sick.  It was so crushing and sad for all of us.  Over the past month or so my kids have been talking about wanting a new baby girl to love, so I relented, and we brought home our German Shepherd puppy today. She'll be three months old next week, all black, very sweet, a little shy still as she's getting used to us, but very friendly.  And HUGE. Here are a few pics!  Say hello to Rayne.  :)

More puppy pics under the cut! )

I remember seeing news footage of the 1968 Democratic Convention riots in Chicago.  I was five years old then.  It scared me shitless.  People acting crazy, and cops beating people with nightsticks, and mayor Daley saying something stupid about it.  Even my five year old brain thought, the world is a messed up place, isn't it?

I've been on a Chloe/Oliver  high lately, but I've been missing my Arthur/Gwen.  This video is awesome!  Check it out and leave some nice comments for the vidder.  :D

OMFG!  My ship.  My ship is starting!  Finally! Yes, the Non-canon, non-comic, non-couple that I've shipped for a long time is finally starting.  Anyone who doesn't think these two have smoking chemistry needs to check their pulse.  She takes her shoes off and she's so tiny next to him!  hahaha..  SPOILER WARNING FOR ANYONE WHO HAS NOT WATCHED THE EPISODE!

ETA:  Here's a quickie music vid that Jenna made of this scene:

I'm a Chlollier.  You don't have to get it.  You don't have to understand it.  You don't have to throw comic book mythos and Dinah in my face, because if comic mythos mattered to me at all, I wouldn't be a Chlollier.  That is all.  Thank you.

Only if I can clone Justin Hartley, and have him all to myself. It would be a positive thing.  For me. Yes I know that was not even any kind of serious answer.  Happy Birthday, Justin.

There was a shooting today at my kids' high school.  A Freshman was shot a block away from the school around dismissal time, and is in critical condition.  I'm freaking out.  I never had to deal with this kind of thing when I was a teenager.  I'm just... freaking out.

I'm not receiving any e-mail notifications for entries posted in Comms that I follow, nor for responses to posts, nothing.  Is anyone else having this problem.. again?

Drive-by posting, and other random, uninteresting stuff.

I've been sick for three weeks (a nasty case of bronchitis).  Three freakin' weeks of my vacation spent coughing my head off, with Mucinex and Robitssin DM as constant companions.  I get to go back to work on Monday, with barely a voice to teach.  I'm sure my students will love that I currently sound like a 90 year old five-pack-a-day smoker.  What really sucks is that I can't sing in the car without sounding like a demonic squeak toy. 

I have to write lesson plans tonight.  Blah.

New Year's resolution:  Get back to the gym... once I stop coughing, that is.

Fandom Rant:  Celebrate your show, your favorite characters, your favorite 'ships, sing their praises to the heavens, dance and squee and flail till you drop, but for the love of all that is holy, do it without bashing other characters, actors, fans, or 'ships, especially in the more general fandom areas. (What you say in your own designated places is your business, have at it).  Is it really that hard to play nice? Thanks.  It's just something about fandoms in general that I will never understand.  I  mean, it's supposed to be fun, right?  Right?  Stop the hatin', people.

And because I can't post this enough: Some time ago, my friend, the lovely [livejournal.com profile] laurelnola   discussed the power of the male British accent on the American female ear.  Welllll...... goodness, (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] umigame  I love you forever for this) wouldn't you know?  Click here-->  BRADLEY JAMES DOES VOICEOVERS!!!  Holy shit, I'd buy an iPhone, a Vodaphone, and join the military for this man, if only he'd talk to me all day long and read me bedtime stories at night (*ahem*).  I seriously got all squishy and melty inside just listening to him.  I think I ovulated. *puddle of goo*  I'm seriously going to download those and put them in my iPod... whenever I get one.  

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year celebration, and that the coming year brings many good and beautiful things your way. *hugs entire Flist, but not too closely; I don't want you to catch my cough*
