Here is me looking HAPPY

I promised a Happy blog and by gosh I am sticking to it! The sun is shining (still 30 degrees) and I woke up in a good mood. I got plenty of rest last night and I am determined to have a great week! This weekend went too fast but we did have some good times. The highlight of the weekend was Liam's second birthday. I can't wait to upload pics because he was precious!!! Having all the family in one small space was fun as well. Yes alcohol is important at a 2 year olds birthday, thats why we have such a great time.

Macey is still missing and hope is almost gone. Now the question for fellow animal lovers. What is the next step? She either had a run in with coyotes in the woods or someone is loving her as their new pet ( I am betting on the woods, b/c with a reward offered someone would have returned her). So...would a new dog heal my heart? Should we adobt a dog and if Macey returns 2 dogs are better than one? A new dog will not cure me at all, but loving another animal might ease the pain? What are your suggestions?

This week brings Ash Wednesday. With that being said I have 2 more days to drink carbination. Yes..I am giving up all carbinate drinks for lent. God help me have strenth to turn down every Dt. Coke and beer I see. I take pride in my Catholic religion and I embrase lent by always giving up something I dearly love. This year I have really pushed my limits. I will have coffee, water, and wine occasionaly for the next 40 days. I might mix it up with a vodka and orange juice if I dare to be crazy. I know this might sound easy to some, but it just might be the dealth of me. I am doing this for mine good though, I really drink zero water throughout the day...straight from coffee to sweet tea or Dt. Coke ( I realize sweet tea isn't carbinated but I am giving it up as well) Hopefully this well help me be better to my body.

With Fat Tuesday on its way tomorrow I can't wait to eat everything in sight and drink tons and tons of soda and sweet tea until I can't sleep because my stomach is turning circles!

Yaaay Kara! Nice to see you happy still..I think a new puppy is a great idea. Get a male and name him Mason... =)

I think you should get another dog, the shelters are overflowing right now. Consider an adult dog. Puppies are too much work.

Hey Kara,
I have to tell you, I was in a pet store in St. Louis, when we were visiting a pet store and I saw a dog that looked exactly like Macey. I thought of you, I'm sorry to hear that you still haven't found her. If it were me, I think that I would adopt another dog. If you find Macey, then you're blessed with two dogs, if not, you'll have some company. I'm sure it won't ever replace Macey, but it might help to have a dog in the house.

Sorry I've been MIA. I just got back to google reader after 5 days and I had 1000+ posts. Wha??? Luckily, one of my blogs had 600 posts.... I know... in 5 days.

Anyhow, I digress.

I think a new dog could help you feel better. And when Macey comes back, they will have each other too. I think that two dogs are better than one, anyhow.

Lots of love coming your way!
