Hey Decisions! I hate you.


I'm back. I haven't been blogging hardly at all lately, and I miss it! There's something about it that I like better then physically writing in a journal. Maybe it's that I can share it with people, and exchange ideas. Or maybe it's that I can use photos to accompany text. OR it might just be that if I make a mistake, I don't have the dishonorable duty of drawing a big fat line across the incorrect word or statement. PLUS, typing is much faster. :-P

Well, whatever it is, it feels good to be back. =)

It's February first and there's a bit going on. A few new things, surprises, and one thing that I have to do that I hate most of all.

And that's making a DECISION. O_o

Really, I admit it, most of the time I am terrible at deciding on things. I'm not terrible at making decisions, because I usually make the right choice. It just takes me an immeasurable amount of time to make them. And in this scenario- the one I'm about to explain to you, time is of the essence.

You see, the day before school started up again (yesterday) my mum and I wondered into a Pet Store. I was originally looking for a kitten, a little like minded furry companion for Louie (my cat of four years) because he's been quite lonely and bored ever since my first dog Tuffy, died 2 years ago. He's been friendless. I look at it like he's an only child. It's not fair! I try to play with him, but I can only whip around a string for so long before we both get bored of it.

So, my original plan was to get another cat. I could just imagine them playing together, keeping each other company. It would be cute, and I don't care if it makes me look like a cat person!

Anyway, those were my intentions. But the outcome was much different.


Long story short, now I want a dog. A certain puppy that we both fell in love with that day through the thick glass window. She's a scruffy little thing with the most adorable, quite and gentle personality.

I mean, just look at her! ->


I was tossing and turning since 5:00 this morning, thinking about the whole situation. Just a few days ago I was in a completely different mind set, but now since I've seen her I can't get her out of my mind. And not just her, I can't stop mulling it over and over again in my head- wether or not getting a dog is the right decision for right now.

It's driving me insane ! !

To add to the madness, I feel like I have a time limit. Someone else could buy her before I even make my decision! I don't know how I would feel if that happened. I'd feel sad, that's for sure.

Ugh, life is funny that way. You never know what's going to happen next. I certainly never saw this coming. It was a surprise. A cute, furry, dangerously adorable surprise.

And here I am again. With yet another decision needed to be made.



You expected me to come up with a brilliant revelation by the end of this post?

As if.

I don't feel even close. It's all... up in the air right now.

I guess for now I'll just have to find the smart, responsible, grown up inside of me and carefully think about what buying this puppy would mean, and how it would effect my life. INSTEAD of doing what my heart tells me. (Which is running off to that pet store this very second and bringing her home).


Is that revelationy enough for you?

Well, more to come from the life of an indecisive girl making decisions. *Chuckle* Oh the irony!

Singing off,

aweh she's got the cutest funniest little face and her eyes are like "TAKE ME HOME!!" xD

I dunno. Maybe think about how this would effec your kitty? Is she more of a "i want a CAT friend" kitty or a "i want a DOG friend" kitty. ?

Do you think you're kitty would get along with a dog??

Haha :)

That's a very good point. I've actually already thought about it. In fact, it was one of the reasons I was even looking in a pet store in the first place. My cat has been pretty bored and lonely since my dog died, so I think he could use a little friend.

He's very used to dogs. The first 2 1/2 years of his life were spent with Tuffy (our late dog). We also have neighbors with tons of dogs and they've been over sometimes and Louie's fine with it. My aunts also have dogs that visit, and I could definitely see Louie getting along with this puppy in particular.

When we saw her on Sunday, got to hold her and everything, she reminded me a lot of Louie. Her personality is so laid back, gentle and quiet. But she also has spurts of energy for playing. Perfect for Louie's schedule! :P

I've been thinking about this A LOT in the past few days. Ever since we saw her.

Well that's awesome then. It sucks about her being adopted by somebody else, I'm sorry. I know how that feels. It happens to me everytime I fall in love with a kitten!!! Grrrr...

Well... Maybe you'll find another puppy..? if not, hope everything works our all right... Write a song about it ;) Jk xD
