All I can say is the fireworks in my ridiculous neighborhood could not be more torturous for our animals and babies.   It is absolutely sickening to me that people could be so pathetic.   My poor dog had to be drugged to simply relax because he was so petrified.  I hate drugging my 12.5 yr old golden!!!!  

 This weekend’s fireworks extravaganza really made me think about what is currently going on in other countries where there are wars, bombs, shootings.   It made me deeply sad for all those babies, those animals, those other scared people who hear bombs as often as we hear a car horn.    I wish there was something I could do to end the violence.   

The sounds of the fireworks honestly sound to me like bombs going off every minute.  I literally feet like I am in a war zone right now.   Friday night was not as bad, although it lasted a solid eight hours and continued into the night until three am.   But Saturday during the day and night were insane.   I had to take my dog to my mom’s house (a mere .5 of a mile away), where there were little fireworks and where he could relax.   Luckily my lovely Margaret helped Daree and me and I could relax knowing he would be in good hands.  Today, Sunday, the fireworks started again at nine pm and are going off like clockwork as I write this at eleven thirty.   I am truly sickened and sad.

On a lighter note, I saw Away We Go.   I enjoyed it, but not as much as I thought I would.  I do like Alexi Murdoch, but I would have enjoyed the movie better if there were some musical diversity in it.   I loved how much Krasinski’s character adored Ruddolph’s.   I loved how that made me feel.   I enjoyed the movie, but was surprised at the downer effect it left me with.   I am excited to see Whatever Works- hopefully this week!

Another observation, and if you have made it this far, you are a amazing, is how even girls in their upper thirties through sixties still behave like high schoolers at times.   While that initially bothers me, it also reminds me that growing up is hard to do.   And what’s the rush? 

I am so lucky to have the wonderful friends, old and new, that I have.  Thanks guys for your love and support.  I have come to value consistency and reliability more and more along with loyalty and truth.   I value you and I appreciate you.

Summer has officially finally begun.  This week was a whirlwind of action across the board.   I’ll blog about it next.  For now, off to comfort Daree and keep him relaxed.   No more fireworks pls pls pls
