So Terribly Sad

Did you all hear about the killer whale that killed it’s trainer, Dawn Brancheau at SeaWorld Orlando? Omgosh!! It’s killed before and they still let it out with trainers, this is such a sad story. I feel so bad for the family, what is going to be done? Are they going to let it be trained by another person and have all that happen again, didn’t they learn the first time? It should of been enough personally with the first time it killed, hello .. its a Killer Whale for gosh sakes! You can read about it here if you like article. Ahh I should change the theme of this post, it’s too sad, but so much sad news comes on, you can’t help but read or watch it.

This week we had to change the faucet on the claw foot tub, I twittered about it, but still wanted to briefly talk about it, it all ended up good, William did an fantastic job, we will use less water now, since the old faucet was still releasing water, even after the shower was running, I’m really proud of him, he did such a good job. We now have a great shower, and we will be able to conserve water now, I’m really happy about that. Use less water, and save money, something that I know everyone is trying to do. Anyway it was a good ending to a week. I wish other news could be better, and I’m referring to the dog situation, but we’ll see. I still am hoping things will turn around, say a prayer If you feel so inclined to donate so that I can get a dog that would be fabulous, it’s a $400 dollar adoption fee, and it would be so incredibly awesome of you, but if you can’t that’s ok, a prayer would be lovely too

At A Moments Notice

It’s amazing how things can change at a moments notice. When you feel finally you are getting somewhere, then things go to shit! I won’t bore you with my life’s details, but yeah. I had mentioned before I wanted to get a :dog: , but I think I won’t be able to after all. Circumstances have changed, and well I have to change with them. It was really nice thinking about it. I never had my very own dog before, so that was going to be a very nice experience. I had 2 :cat2: in my life, my first cat Priscilla she was a Calico cat, loving kitty, so very attached to me as a kitten and even as an adult cat. I moved and I couldn’t have her where I was, so my sister took her, but under the condition that she keep the pet as her own, I agreed because my sister loves animals. I’ve told this story before, but now I feel like talking about it again lol. Then my mother she had a Siamese :cat: Juliet and when my mother passed away, I took her as my own. I left to England some years later, and while in England I guess she missed me. My brother was no help in caring for her, I seen how he would be when she was there, at times he’d make me put her outside, when she was an inside and out site cat, it broke my heart and there was nothing I could do at the time. I think from missing me, and not being loved the way I loved her, she ran away never to be found again. I don’t know if she died alone somewhere, or if a dog chewed her up. I knew she was a fighter though, so I think maybe perhaps another family found her and is caring for her. She was an old cat she was 13 but still full of life, I loved Juliet so very much, she was my moms cat. I feel so guilty over that, I don’t think I will ever shake the guilt I feel from leaving her. I should have taken her with me when I went to England. Ok I’ll stop feeling sorry for myself now.

It’s been raining non stop since last night. Don’t get me wrong I love the rain, but I would prefer snow :snowman: lol, lots of it, I do hope to get some before winter ends though. That would be really nice. OH yeah I finally won the auction for the mannequin on ebay, so yay. I can use it to display clothing now instead of hangers, it will look nicer I feel. Once that comes I need to sort my stuff out, find a good spot to take pictures, preferably where there is a lot of light. Wish me luck on my ebay selling, I can use all the help!! Anyway I have stuff I need to do, but I wanted to leave you with a song (video) that I really like, it’s a special song that makes me think of someone very special in my heart, and you know very well who you are.

So the Olympics are on, tonight the USA hockey team plays, I will be watching that later as I’m recording it, I don’t know if they’ll show commercials but more than likely lol. So I can cut through all that. Yeah I know it’s much more fun watching live, but since William wanted to watch it as well, what’s the point of watching it twice, so I’ll wait for the recorded one. USA has been doing very good, Americans have a lot to be proud of. USA won Canada in the first game, it’s getting exciting, take it all the way USA!!! I said I was going so now I really am. Have a lovely rest of the day, wherever you may be.
