FIND JASPER!

lost dog

NOOOOO!!!!!! I am so sad. If you lived in my neighborhood, you’d see these signs posted all around. This one (^) is hanging from our mailbox (underneath is our phone #, which may or may not be 555-****).

Here’s what happened: I took Bella over to our house this week to have playmates, while everyone was at school & work. So, they’ve had a grand time & they go to bed totally zonked!

Well, yesterday, Jasper & Bella dug themselves under the fence & ran freely. Some people down the street found them & took them in (aw, thanks!). These were the same people that took Jasper in when he ran away as a little pup. They dug themselves out of that yard, too!!! Bella came right to the door! Weird, because she is not the one who lives at our house & shouldn’t know where to go. But Jasper– he didn’t come back. The neighbors let us know & we searched & searched for hours, calling people, the vet, humane society, put up posters & signs… nothing, yet. Jasper has a micro-chip, so if someone takes him to the pound or a vet, we can find him that way, but only Mon-Fri!!!

I had to go to work soon after our search started & I was completely distracted & worried the whole night, leading me to a restless night of sleep(-lessness!) & awful dreams about it. I got up early to look, but figured people would have taken him in by now. I guess the waiting game is in order. 

If anyone has seen him, please let me know & bring him home safely!!! Tucker is very worried, too!

^ “Find my brother!”

If anyone out there has dogs, they’re like my kids, and I think everyone knows how sad losing a child can be!

I’m trying to think like Jasper. When he got out as a pup, a nice family found him at McDonald’s, looking hungry! When they saw our signs then & met us at the park to return him, the kids had already named him (Rocky), bought him a collar, leash, food… aw. He’d be where the people are, & not so much where the other dog-friends are! He’s curious!

Hopefully Jasper comes home soon!!!! I’ll update & post again when I find out something new!

Until then, I’ll leave you with a new smoothie I made yesterday, using this Fruitein Exotic Red Fruit protein packet:

& I mixed it with (~1 c.?) fresh strawberries, some water, ice, smilk & sogurt. I liked! Very fresh & berry-y, though it tasted a bit powdery sometimes, yanno?!

Okay. Back to worry-mode.

I hope your weekends were more worry-free than mine!

FREE, ME!!

I slept in, mondo… when I woke up, I put out the FLAME!!! Okay, I was watching the news on TV this morning when I woke up (okay, afternoon) when I saw it: smell like a burger! For $3.99 you can smell like a flame-broiled Burger King ham-boogie. Nice. They also referenced the SuperBowl commercial from McDonald’s where a man mistakenly puts a wrapper in the dryer and his wife’s clothes smells like beef and he is turned on… see it on YouTube here, with Miss OP:

Okay, onto the good stuff…

I finally finished my semester!!!!

YIPPEEE!!! YOW!!! HURRAY!!! ZIP-ZIP-ZIPPERRR!!! WEEE!!! So, I’ll happily be blogging more until I start mid-January (the 12th or so?). I’ll be working (*grumble*), relaxing, and doing other unforeseen things in my future. Unfortunately, either of my sisters will NOT be home for Christmas. It’s gonna be weird. And sad. Me lovez ‘da sistah’s!

So, yesterday. As soon as I woke up, I went for a brisk walk around to wake up and energize me! It was so nice out and great for my mind. When I got home, I put on a pot of coffee and made some oats for brain-food. oats

^ I had Target’s Pumpkin Spice coffee (I mix the grounds with generic/cheaper variety with the yummy stuff to make it last longer. I also add cinnamon to the filter!); the oats are: ~1/3 (+) c. Bob’s Red Mill 5-grain hot cereal, chopped apple, ~1 T. Skippy Natural Chunky PB, cinnamon, a splash of soymilk, and brown sugar. MmMmMmmmmm…

So, then Government Exam. Yow!

Then, the gym for some cardio… gotta get the heart pumpin’!

I have to tell you something. My uncle has been looking for a job for a while now. He’s a real estate appraiser, but work is hard to find right now with that… so he’s also been a black-jack dealer! Cool! Anyway, he wants to work at a big casino around here, but until he can be transfered here, he has to work at another location, a few hours away. He also has a cat (Milo!) and a dog (Bella, who is also Jasper’s sister!!!!), so I am staying at his house to watch his “brats” (or “kids”- they’re both! HA!).

It’s been pretty fun. Man, Bella is FULL OF ENERGY, ALL! THE! TIME! And Milo was barely seen, until a couple of weeks ago. Aww, he likes me! Because I feed him, probably. He’s a one-minded animal! Let me introduce you to them- Milo:

Bella: (actually sleeping?!)

It’s a mini-Jasper

So, since I told you that, I’m staying at his house. I’ve moved in my stuff, OP’ed his kitchen, I get my own room and Bella snuggles with me at night. BUT, his shower-head is like a drizzle… so I went home after the gym to shower. And, my fab Paris-sister is still home (she can’t get a flight back, uh-oh!), so we went to Publix to get sammiches. I love their hoagie-bread!

^ Mine was a veggie with spicy mustard, Provolone cheese, S+P, and all the veggies, except black olives. EEK! (green pepper, banana peppers, tomatoes, onions & pickles… I think that’s all!)

Then, work. It wasn’t too bad. I got paid, but since I went to Paris the last weekend I’ve worked, it was a small paycheck. I’ve only been working Thursdays & Saturdays (and some Sundays) during school, so over break, I’ll probably pick up some more hour$!  It was slooowwww though!

Afterward, I decided I needed a fun lil’ zing to celebrate the end of my semester! I was by myself and tired, so I found this baby in my uncle’s fridge and saw a little recipe on the back, so I improvised. My version of cookies & milk, no?!

cookies & milk

hmmm, I’m not a big drinker, and this tasted in NO WAY like alcohol, which I loved… but I drank it so quickly, and limited it to just one cup. I heated some soymilk and mixed it that way. Great! While watching Jim Carey’s version of The Grinch, it was a little nice to have no agenda!

So, then I slept in until, late. I woke up at 8:30, but have NOTHING TO DO, so I rolled over and kept sleeping. It was strange for me, since I’ve been a morning person these days, but I stayed up late (for me!) and had a lil’ drinky-drinky! 

Have a great start to your weekend, loves! Any plans?! Holiday shopping done? I’m allllllmost there. Just something else for my mom & Paris-sis. Hopefully I can navigate the crowds, but since I already have gift-ideas for them, it shouldn’t be too bad!

I work Sat. & Sun. then not again until next Sat! ENJOY!
