Two Confession...


Confession 1: My dog Macy has 100% control over me... as evidenced by that fact she gets multiple treats, every day, and sleeps under the covers by my feet. And when I do muster up the courage to say no to her... as in "No! you can not have a 10th cookie", "No you can not play with the cat's tail" and "No I will not rub your belly for an hour", this is the look she gives me...

Confession 2: I buy a lottery ticket once a week. Do I think I will actually win? I hope so , but realistically, my weekly lottery ticket is a week long license to dream without limits. As I sit in traffic, I think about what house I would buy, destinations I would travel to, good deeds I would perform and luxuries I would indulge in... My little fantasies change each week and leave me feeling indulgent and giddy at the end of my commute. A dollar well spent.

This week I would buy this house, surprise friends and family with this car and plan a weekend getaway to this destination. So here is the truly funny thing. For all my day dreaming the basic things I want always remain the same and even more startling, they really don't require Millions to achieve...

  1. I want a happy home and a welcoming garden.
  2. I want my friends and family to know how much I cherish them and to see them happy.
  3. I want a creative life filled with inspiration, creativity and joy.
  4. I want to give a little bit back to the world, that has given me so much...

does any of this require multi millions... certainly not and this realization is priceless...

LOL! "No I will not rub your belly for an hour" is the funniest line! And even though the best stuff in life is priceless, you never know about winning the lottery either. I was so shocked when I won the office football pool!

I love Macy—she is the sweetest little dog.
You two deserve each other! :)

Macy says thanks for all the kind comments... And for Anali... Office Football Pool? You go girl!!!!!

of course, all this makes perfect sense out of the cat's behavior: he knows you're cheating on him with the dog.

Suttonhoo, I think you hit the nail on the head... Jealousy it the root of all evil ;-)
