A rough week to love the poodle

So this week the poodle was sick :-(
The vet originally thought it was cancer and although that hasn't been 100% ruled out its looking less likely!!

Day 22: how you judge intelligence
I have different standards on this... For other people I judge it on how they take speak and act. For myself my lack of intelligence is the fact that I have no degree :-( whomp whomp

Day 23: a month/year of your life when you were happiest and why
I really like march 2003 AFTER our wedding - we were in Disney for over a week and I was carefree :-)

Day 24: your favorite 10 people right now and why
The dumbest question I've ever seen and has no hope of being answered by me since its only purpose would be to hurt someone you forgot (see look at me showing some smarts right there!)

Day 25: a friend you have lost that you’re better off without/one you wish you had back
I'm not sure who I'm better off without but I know who I wish I had back:
My mom - she was my very best friend :-) I love her to this day and I wish that she could come back even just for an hour.

Day 26: 5 things you’re looking forward to
1. Meeting a friends new baby
2. Summer
3. Poodle snuggles
4. Horse shows
5. Hips good enough to use them

Day 27: a person you wished lived closer and why
2 friends going through a health crisis because I wish I could be there to help them

Day 28: something you makes you really angry
Cancer! It sucks!

What are your weekend plans?

Going back to the ortho tomorrow

I miss walking without pain! 
I miss running
I miss working out a lot!
I missing playing with the poodle 
But here's this weeks questions
Day 15: a song that makes you cry and why
Ohhhh holy hell - mommas shoes. Have you heard that song? It makes me cry like a baby! 
Day 16: someone you trust
The poodle! I trust a lot of people with a part of me but the poodle is the only one I trust with all of my craziness
Day 17: your idol and why you look up to them
My mom! She was never supposed to walk or talk... But her parents didn't give up on her and they made her into an incredible human
Day 18: why you made your blog, why you still have it
Good question. I think I started it because everyone I knew was starting one and I still have it because I'm alone everywhere and this is where I talk to people
Day 19: your thoughts on your family
It's complicated
Day 20: what you think makes someone beautiful
Gentleness kindness love
Day 21: everything you wish for in a significant other
The same as 20 and foot rubbies!!!!

Do you like foot rubs?

A 3 day post

So this has taken me 3 days to write. I keep sitting down to write it and having to stop because I'm in pain. These hips of mine are for the birds!

A month ago today I was running 13 miles - today I'm hobbling through the store. I'm going to PT and the chiro and hearing that "I need to take it easier" really? What's easier than nothing? Because all I am doing these days is sitting on my ass envying all the people who are getting in shape for the new year.

Day 8: things that make you sad
Most often it's just me that makes me sad. My thoughts, my fears, my me...

Day 9: things that make you happy
The poodle. A good run. Making stuff for people. A pedicure.

Day 10: what you think when you hear the words “be yourself”
I wonder who I am :-/ seriously I have no clue who myself is

Day 11: the worst advice you’ve ever heard, or ever been given
A family member told their daughter not to be a hair dresser because its not a career that'll make them money. I totally disagree and also think that money isn't the be all end all and if someone loves their job...

Day 12: the best advice you’ve ever heard, or ever been given
Don't cut off your nose to spite your face. My mum used to say this all the time and I think she meant it like don't not do something you want to do because you're mad at someone else

Day 13: your favorite quote
The only way around is through 

Day 14: write about something you believe in, anything at all
I believe that love can fix anything and that's why animal therapy works. Animals love just about everyone 

Pick a day... Any day... Answer it

So I found this:

A 365 day challenge - the flaw?
I will never blog every day 
Soooo I am converting is to the 52 week challenge - still all the same questions just answered a week at a time!

Pretty smart huh?

So here we go with days 1-7

Day 1: hopes, dreams, and plans for the next 365 days with a picture of yourself
I hope to be as good to my dog and other people as he is to me. The poodle defines love and dedication and I'd like to walk through life that way 

Day 2: something that’s illegal but you think it should be legal
I don't really know of anything? I mean I wish texting and driving were legal but it's stupid and causes accidents so...
Day 3: what you think your reason for being here is
Here in this world? I wish I knew
Day 4: how you think your life would change if you achieved your dream
Well first I'd have to pick a dream... I have tons of "I'd like to..." But I haven't worked towards any of them
Day 5: something you would change about the world
If I ruled the world people would be kinder to each other. And not because they HAD to be but because they wanted to be...
Day 6: something you would like to change about yourself
I'd like new hips ;-)
I'd also like to ditch the anxiety 
And be more decisive
Day 7: a show or a movie that has changed you, and how
Sounds silly but LILO and stitch... In my house we live by the RULE that ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.

Well there's the end of week one!
On another note I went to the dr. And my hips (quad and lower back) are a mess and I'm back in PT and upping the chiro visits. But the BIG change? No running or hard (on my legs) workouts for 2 months. This is a hopeful way to avoid surgery... I'm not feeling too good about this yet! But heck 2 days down 58 to go...

How was your New Years?
