Anyone who knows me, knows that I am hopeless coffee addict. Seriously, I love it. I need it. Coffee owns me. I tend to drink it at inappropriate times such as late at night, which leads to insomnia, which leads to crankiness – not good. To substitute and distract myself from coffee in the evenings, I’ve recently taken to drinking to caffeine-free tea. I particularly fond of Bengal Spice tea in the Celestial Seasonings brand. It’s a perfect blend of cinnamon and clover-ish goodness. I take it wit a spot oh milk – yes, I said that in my best British accent. I just love British accents. HAHA Any who, so yea tea rocks. End of story. I mean it’s not coffee or anything, but it gets me through the evenings. 😉

Is anyone on GoodReads.com? I am obsessed. For those of you that have yet to discover it, Good Reads is a website where you can rate and review books you’re reading or have read. You can also add books to a virtual “want to read” list. I love being able to read other book enthusiast’s reviews and on books I’m considering to read. I like being able to save books I want to read in the future. Another great feature of Good Reads is being able to “follow” your favorite authors. I love following my favorite author’s blog posts and see what they’re reading and reviewing. Best part about GoodReads? It’s completely free. Seriously, GoodReads is great, you should check it out. If you’re a member or you decide to check it out, find me HERE.

Well, I guess that’s it for now. Have a lovely rest of the week. Go drink some tea! Join GoodReads.com!



This weekend was great! The perfect mixture of relaxation, accomplishment, and family time. Getting to the weekend was rough, I must say. Friday was a looooooong day at work. I was scheduled 7-12, but due to emergency cases and us being short staffed, I was there until right before 5. I work as an Veterinary Technician at a busy practice. I love my job, but come Friday afternoon I was tired, cranky and ready to get home. It was just after 5 pm when I got to the house. My usual routine upon arriving home in the evenings consists of litter box scooping (while still dirty from work and dressed in scrubs), pet medicating (my special kitty Sushi is on medications to help her with a condition called “Mega Colon” as well as a few genetic issues), and feeding the furry and feathered crew. I had just finished up when my husband walks in from the shop asking for assistance with a home removal across town. My husband and I have a pet cremation business. We service the animal hospitals in town, but we also offer to come to folk’s homes when their beloved pet has passed away at home. I admit I did not have the best attitude initially (I was TIRED dangit and I was undressed and just about to jump in the shower!) It’s funny how God uses situations that we are reluctant to be a part of for our good. The people we helped were so interesting and kind and clearly heartbroken over the loss of their 130 lbs dog. She was their baby. I love those moments when as a human being, we allow ourselves to be cranky and undeniably selfish, just to have God put us in a situation that we, in the end are so happy we got to experience.

We ended the evening with Mexican food and a movie and it was great. Saturday was spent cleaning, organizing, and computer work. Sunday was full of errands, the husband went fishing and I to the grocery store. Today was my precious nephew’s 6th birthday, so we celebrated his birthday as well as Memorial Day with a family party. I spent the remainder of the afternoon scrubbing bathrooms (my least favorite house chore EVER), laundry, sushi for dinner and a trip to a local Animal ER for two pickups and now I am talking to all of you. Tomorrow will be an early day at work. I am excited for a new day. Who knows what tomorrow will bring, but I’m sure it will be exciting. Life at the animal hospital is full of surprises. Have a great Tuesday!
