Sydney appreciation & "Line of Fire"...

I'm not quite sure what it was about last night - maybe it was seeing her old medication in the refrigerator, or maybe it was the after-effects of Sabine's previous post, but it occurred to me just how lucky Mark & I are. I had always known we were, but last night, for some reason, I was really able to appreciate it. It's been an entire month since Sydney was given the clean bill of health from our pessimistic vet and in some ways it feels like this is all EXTRA time that we'd never thought we'd spend with her.

In talking with Mark last night I came to the realization that I could never own another dog after Sydney. I know I've said that a lot while she was sick, but I think that I've always felt that way, to some extent, and Mark's never fully understood why.

There are little things that Sydney does that just makes her irreplaceable in our house. Like when I take a shower, she'll plop herself outside the door as if she's standing guard over me. :) Not only has Mark told me this, but I can usually see her fur creep out from under the door where she's sitting. :) Or how she'll jump into my arms at the foot of the stairs so I can carry her up (she's such a spoiled dog) :) Or even her little habits of nosing her food dish over to us when she's hungry - or how she paws at my hand when I stop scratching her for more... I even love the endearing way she has to block the TV every time I'm really interested in seeing something (usually during Julie's scenes in "Line of Fire"). ;) I don't think that Mark really understands, but that's the reason I don't think there will ever be another dog for me.

Mark & I ended up having a rather long discussion about this last night - and to think it all started with me seeing her old medication in the fridge! :P

And to briefly change the subject - I'm so sorry, but I have to mention this - probably the best Julie Ann episode will be shown on "Line of Fire" tonight. If anyone isn't doing anything, please tune in - it should be a WONDERFUL show! I'm still hoping the ratings pick up enough to where it'll continue into the regular season.

I hope everyone has a nice day! :)

Unintelligible patter...

There are a bunch of things are running through my head right now,... none of which are really coherent. :P Just watched the MOST spectacular episode of "Line of Fire" tonight! Julie was absolutely incredible in it!! Eight episodes have aired and it still feels a little surreal watching her on TV since she has to be one of the most unassuming people you could ever meet. :) I certainly hope the show gets picked up for the regular season, if it doesn't, next week's show will be the last one. :( And I'm not ready to give up my "Line of Fire" viewing just yet! :(

And tonight I did something I never thought I'd do - I watched "American Idol" for the very first time. Why? I have no idea, I just happened to turn to it and similar to a train wreck, I couldn't turn away. :P And I think now I have to watch it tomorrow night. Sadly, I think I've gotten addicted. :P

What else? Oh yeah, the very first Krispy Kreme opened on Maui today! The news said that there were more than 200 people waiting outside this morning for the doors to open! That's outrageous! But it gives you an idea of how deprived we are out here... Now, if we can only get an Applebee's here I'll be happy... and a Bath & Bodyworks. :) And a Claim Jumper... And a... well, you get the idea! :P

And lastly, gotta love my friends! I just received the sweetest gift today from one of my CA friends. She sent me a GC for Suncoast (woo hoo!) and two NASA shotglasses. :) It was so sweet that it really made my day - I adore my friends. :)

I'm off to do more woo hoo-ing on Julie's message board, work on a proposal for Misty's site, and give some attention to my fuzzy dog. :) Hope you all have a good night. :)
