Here are some of the places I'm going (or so I've been told I'm going)...
Anyone have any additional suggestions?? I'm open! This will be my first visit to Texas, and I will be staying in downtown Austin. We will be traveling to San Antonio one day as far as I know. It feels great to have something to look forward to! I will be gone 8 days. Wooo!

It was a quiet Easter; a simple ham (the awesome one in the red foil from Costco), scalloped potatoes, asparagus and a glass of chardonnay. My mom and I played cards and listened to music. We talked about everything. I texted friends and family to tell them I love them.
About an hour after my last entry, the vet called and said they had Louie's remains. I went to pick them up, and it was a bittersweet surprise. The box is just lovely; and there was a surprise in the package; an imprint of Lou's paw. When I saw that I broke down and cried and cried and cried. I was so impressed with the presentation, and again I had the people at the vet tearing up. I can't help it, I'm very emotional when it comes to the ones I love. I don't think I will ever be over it. Also in the package was a beautiful memoir called "The Rainbow Bridge". I will post it later. I'm going to frame it along with a picture of Boo-bear for my shrine to him.

I still talk to Joe everyday, and he is a great guy, but I cannot wait any longer as I want to spend time with the one I care about. There is another nice gentleman who has been expressing interest in me, so I may explore that. It is difficult to find decent men my age who have values, and with whom I share mutual attraction with, so I don't want to miss out on a possible good opportunity. In other words, I am really picky. :-)

Lips: This would be my lips after using my new Lip Fusion XL Lip Plumper. Fabulous!
Lack: Don't know about Joe and I...he is sweet and funny...but...not there very often. I swear to God I am the unluckiest person in the WORLD when it comes to dating. He hasn't done anything "wrong", but I hardly ever see him. He emails me quite a bit, but I don't want an email relationship. I guess I will just see where it goes and keep my options open. Frustrating!!!

Okay, moving on...the downstairs is chaos. The kitchen and family room are torn apart for remodel right now so all routine is gone for the moment. No DVR or HD, no cooking and no couch or recliner to sit in. AAHH! My mom and I have been curling up and watching TV in the master bedroom together - kind of a pajama party. And get this...we have to go out for dinner every night right now and when I came home from work yesterday and asked my mom where she wanted to go, she said "Hooters". I said "Hooters? Really?" She said "Yup. Got a coupon!" LOL!!! So yes, we went to Hooters for dinner. When we got there she exclaimed "Well good God, I've got bigger hooters than her!" O.M.G. :-D It's going to be gorgeous and in the 80's this weekend so I'm going to catch up on my poolside lounging - wanna be tan for Texas.

My boo-bear is gone. So is my soul. This is the single worst day of my entire life. That dog meant more to me than most people. I will never be the same. No dog will ever be Louie. I took off work to spend the last few days with him so I could hug him and kiss him and tell him how much better he made my life. I would not have made it through the last few years without him by my side. I don't know if I can be Crazydogmama anymore.
I love you my sweet, sweet bear.

Got my plane ticket today and booked a hotel. Got awesome deals - only 200 bucks round trip and 60 percent off a luxury hotel in downtown Austin. Wooo!! I'm going with friends for 8 days at the end of April / first part of May. Should be great fun!! Oooh how I need a vacation...it's a wild crowd too, so who knows what I'm in for. LOL. Now I just have to survive between now and then.
