The Squeaker Toy...

As of 3:56 is a brighter day! Do I still need to wash my car? Yes. Should I have ran again today? Definitely! *still might get out there* Did Bella chew crators into my phone this morning? Ummm, wish I didn't have to say yes to that... But, after pretty close to a week of feeling moody and unmotivated, I am almost 100 percent better and ready to get back in the game!

Insert a moment of pause [here] because the house is entirely too quite...Must go check on my teething horse, Bella...

Okay! Turns out all is well...Bella was just swallowing our cats head, yet again while squeezing the life out of him...However, two days ago I found the most awesome diversion other then the cats head; a cloth bone! Who would have guessed...Only problem is, it wasn't JUST a big hit with her, but Peanut as well...Those two would go back and forth all day long if I'd let them; stealing it from one, to turn around and be stolen from the other...The important thing is, I FINALLY FOUND A TOY SHE HASN'T GOTTEN BORED OF! Check out the annoying squeaker it has:p Oh, and my non made up face complete with ratty hair...It wasn't planned but I went with it, HA!

when I play this video back to her she immediately grabs her squeeking bone and trys to out do herself in the video...BWAH A HA HA!

But I believe I owe a bit of an update! We'll start with the biggest news I delivered which was me persuing web design...I'm sure you took note of my use of was. Meaning its not looking too good! To be quite honest, I have completely backed off on it. Robert asked me why, the other day, and so I put some thought into it and came to the conclusion that I feel lost. Not with the material or the learning part so much but how to go about making it work for me once I have the knowledge...I've been talking to a lot of people in this field and it seems to me that I'm never going to be able to work for myself with only knowing web design. Building a web site isn't just a one man show...A misconception I obviously had. So while the wind has been taken out of my sails, I still plan to learn web design, but in a more watered down form. I'll continue to think about what I could do in the future for self employed income and hopefully stumble upon something great!

In other news, I finally feel like I'm learning to balance things, i.e my puppy, running, work, husband, blogging ect...My mistake was feeling like it all had to be perfect and that I had to give 100 percent ALL the time...This only left me feeling over whelmed and very much like a failure when I couldn't meet the challenge...So from here on out, I will continue to have expectations for myself, but will not keep setting myself up for failure with this perfect way of living...

Finally, I'll leave you with this *A, B or C* quiz about me:p

"What job did I hold at the age of 21?"

(A) TJ MAXX associate

(B) Fair Carny

(C) Librarian's Assistant


  1. Starting your own business is quite an adventure! I only just started working "for myself" and it's starting to trickle in. Via con Dios!

    The dog I used to dogsit had a squeaker toy just like that - it sounded like a smurf with an asthma attack all the time!

    And for the quiz, my guess is C. Cause I really have no idea :)

  2. Hey Rebekah!
    Enjoyed the vid clip and your blogs always make me laugh. Wish I couldve seen you while I was State-side this summer. I went on a very short trip to Guam a few days ago and posted some pics on FB. Check them out when you get the chance. Tell Bobert "Hi" for me:)

  3. Hey girl! That clip is too cute. Bella is adorable and I bet a lot of fun to have around ;)

    It is definitely tough starting your own business! But just take it day to day, learn what you can and enjoy it!

    I hope you had a great weekend! Glad you've figured out a better schedule that works for you!

  4. I'll guess A. As far as being perfect? No one is! Finding a balance that works is the most important thing! :)

  5. I'm happy that you feel a better sense of comfort and contentment with where you're at in your life right now... the "balance".

    I still miss your updates coming more often but I understand~ :)

  6. What a fun little quiz - I am going to go with C. I have no idea but that seems like something I would have liked to do. Nerd Katie. That's me and I love it!

    I am glad you are learning to juggle - Life should be fun, not stressful. Always remember that and don't get overwhelmed. Puppy, Blog, Hubs, etc will ALL still be there at the end of the day.

  7. I'm missing you friend and I'm so glad you are doing well. I love that you are taking time to really look at what you want to do and that it doesn't have to be perfect all of the time! XOXO

  8. Glad to have you back!!

    I'm glad you're feeling a little less overwhelmed. Sometimes I think we feel like we have to do it all and do it well and that's just not realistic! Focus on the things you do best, like blogging for example;)

    If it's any consolation, we love you just the way you are!
