Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

On Losing A Dog

Today was a sad day.

05/05/03 - 01/04/12

We lost a dear friend. We lost our dog.

He was our pug.  A dog that is as stubborn as can be but will love your children to pieces.

We had good times with him, and let's be real we had bad times as well.

 He was a dear friend that the kids loved to pieces. He did not love getting his picture taken.

I am at a loss for words. I don't know what to say, I didn't know what to say to the kids when I had to tell them he was in heaven, but I do like to believe he is in a much better place.

Phugley, or big Phugs as we liked to call him is roaming around in heaven getting harassed by his two year old brother Seamus who we lost New Years Day 2007.

The death of a pet is a hard thing. You love them so much you don't want to let them go, but in the end he was sick. He was blind, deaf, and lost complete control of his bowels (disgusting I know). He no longer chewed bones (he was a fan of nylabones) and he slept 23 hours a day. He is in a much happier place right now.

So for all of you who have lost a dear pet my heart goes out to you. This is the second time it has happened to me and I feel this massive hole in my heart that I don't think will ever close.

So Phugley the Pug, I miss you, I love you, but I know you are roaming around on the other side chewing a bone and checking out all the beauty that you haven't been able to see while you were here these last few months on earth.
