Seems like life is full of discoveries. As of late things have changed in my life. My daughter has turned into a grown up – well, maybe adult is the better word. She graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in communication with journalism emphasis. She moved into her own apartment. She is working, networking, looking for “the job” and looking to buy her own “first” car.

Yes, I cried at her graduation and although I am incredibly proud of her, I miss her and would love to have her closer to home.

My, our, puppy passed away. She was only nine. She had a reaction to medication and went to sleep on the kitchen floor. That was it. My husband called me at work. I think he was a little lost as to what to do. She was sweet and lovely natured. She was my daughter’s first real pet. Fish don’t count. Our pretty yellow lab named Luz de la Luna, yes – her name was light of the moon. She has nearly white fur except for a couple of pale gold lace-designed spots on the tips of her ears and the little gold on her back. She was my dog. She even slept with my husband and me. All 80 pounds of her. She was my furry baby.

I am seriously going through empty nest syndrome. No, I have not done harm to my husband but he is a little on my nerves. In all honesty, I am a bit of a loner so for me to be in a house with another person who really likes being with me, well…it is tough to say the least.

I have an opportunity to spend some time away from home this summer and I think it will do us all some good. Too much togetherness can destroy friendships and I’d like to stay friends with my husband, ya’ know?

Must get moving, I have been on the computer much too long this morning. With all the rain we have had we are getting pests in the house – no, not my husband. We plan to spray the house and the yard. Yes, the yard needs spraying because with the warmth and moisture we are inundated with ticks and chiggers outside.

I was diagnosed with Lyme disease this year so I am a bit paranoid now. Hubby and I worked in the yard last week and picked up chiggers. NOT FUN!!

Discoveries as of late – I still like being alone, I like yard work but hate chiggers! I miss my kid. I  miss my dog. I’d like to miss hubby – but only for a couple of weeks. I am okay not being at work but I am excited to start a new project. Oh, and I really miss caffeine!
