What My Pets and Child Have Taught Me About Life

Have you ever heard the theory that each child you have teaches you something different about life? I think it’s so true, and I also think it’s true with each pet you own. I was driving (actually, I was sitting in classic Pittsburgh traffic 😂) and thinking about this and knew I had to blog about it!

So, let’s start with my the first dog I owned, Lola.

She was legendary! My dad and I went to the humane society and picked her out together for my 14th birthday and she saw me through every major life change after that–middle school, high school, college, marriage, buying a home, adopting a cat, adopting a puppy, and having a child. She was a black lab mixed with a pit bull and very gentle and sweet.


All the Thoughts in My Brain Today

Hi! As per usual, I’ve got a lot of random things swirling around in my brain. Every time I sit down to write a post like this I think of Sadie saying one of her trademark phrases “Let’s talk about dis” when she wants to chat. So, let’s talk.

Piles of clean laundry on bed

–> I think I hit a personal record of letting clean laundry build up before folding it. I’ve been so busy working on my Etsy shop (just added a new flavor!) that I’ve kiiiiinda let the laundry slide. I took the above picture two days ago and I still haven’t finished putting it all away. Jimmy even vacuumed the other day–something he rarely does–because he said, and I quote: “Stuff was sticking to the bottoms of my feet” 😆 I better get on the ball with housework.
