Unspoken Softly (Poem entry #1)

Posted 09-18-2010 at 10:07 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I have said in the past I was going to start posting some of my poems I wrote. This poem was written when my wife and I were friends and I was really confused by my feelings for her, this one is the one I actually had published. It is not my best IMO but it was good enough to be published. Enjoy.

Unspoken Softly

As we into each others eyes
speaking in ways we can only know,
I want to kiss your lips and live a dream.
You may be just a friend
but you mean much more.
My heart has grown so fond of you
but I can't say I love you so.
Will my feelings ever change?
I do not know.
I would love to love you
and give you my heart.
You are my dream.
You've touched my soul.

My $5,000 Chihuahua - A Pet Parent Dilemma

Posted 09-17-2010 at 11:13 AM by caninemom3

It was this time of the year, Autumn and it all comes back. Ivy lay in the bed sort of crumpled up with her hind legs contracted to her body. She could not move them and every time I tried to move her she winced and cried out. I was in a panic. What was I, were we to do ?? This had happened before. As I tried to comfort my little Ivy, my tears fell onto her sweet little face. I prayed. "Dear God, NOT THIS AGAIN !!" "What are we going to do, God, we are bankrupt ?!" My head was spinning as I tried to figure out a solution. My husband, for all his faults, was beside himself as well. Ivy was his "little princess". I knew something had to be done and it was me who was going to have to set things in action or she would be paralyzed for the rest of her life or have to be put down.

Ivy had ruptured a disc in her back. I don't know how it happened or why. She had no feeling in her legs and had lost control of bowels and bladder but yet still had enough...

Al Bundy, Retail Hero?

Posted 09-17-2010 at 09:20 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

As some of you know I have been working in some sort of retail position for the last 13 years, and now that we are entering the shopping season you start to see the people looking for certain things. Most of these people are really great and are really happy talking with you and sharing their holiday plans and actually like to hear what you have to say and use their please and thank you's.
Then some people are the type of people who are absolute bears and nothing you do is good enough for them and you are just a "speed bump" in their way and they don't want to deal with you but they ask you a question and expect you to drop everything the second they ask even when you are helping other people first.
I know from my experience you have to "kill them with kindness" but sometimes that isn't good enough, and when they leave, I sometimes leave the floor and go to the back or freezer and just take out my frustrations by letting out a torrent of expletives, of...

Quotes From A Two Year Old.

Posted 09-16-2010 at 10:11 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

My boy LC has really started talking quite a bit lately, he just seems to have put it in overdrive since his brother has gone to school. His brother always seemed to talk for him and he never had a reason to say much, even to the point where we couldn't understand what LC was saying we would ask JP and he knows exactly what he said. We thought LC was a late talker considering, his brother was talking by nine months, and was saying complete sentences by 13 months. LC was not saying more than 3 words as late as December 2009 when he was 21 months old, his doctor wasn't concerned he would just say the second child always takes longer, but we were still nervous. After Christmas last year the words started flowing and he was doing a good job practicing his words, through the winter, spring, and summer he learned more and more words and sentences and lately has started asking questions. Which brings me to the point of this entry, the things that have come out of his mouth are sometimes hilarious....

Utopian Dreams

Posted 09-16-2010 at 01:27 PM by caninemom3

What would happen if one day every human creature on Earth woke up without hatred in their souls ? What would happen if ALL political parties stopped calling each other names and making accusations ? What would happen if we stopped noticing what is different about one another like race, creed, religion, sexual prefrerence, etc., and just related to one another as fellow humans ?? What would happen if we all started working together for our Country, for the Earth, for each other in order to make all the wonderful changes we could make ?? What would happen if we really DID love one another as the Master said we should, if our common purpose in life were to help each other along through life instead of thinking ME, ME, ME all the time and fighting each other ?? What if there were no more abused, tortured, abandoned children and animals ?? What if we took care of our senior citizens with the respect, love and kindness they deserve ??

These are but utopian thoughts, I know that....
