I know that there has been a lot of gaps since the last post, but then again I figure there's not much readers left to read.
That's all right.
This laptop is about to roll and die anytime, in which I had brought back from death a few times. Went out to buy a new one, which is right next to this laptop- as I'm working on transferring information- a lot of work, least to say. Fun while going through blogs, websites, finding things I had forgotten about (like Twilight: When Darkness Begins, a favorite young adult book series I loved, and am still working on recollecting).
My dogs are still around; after years, I finally figured out what's the magic word for Hairy when it comes to the command "sit".... 'Sit" and sign "sit" isn't working- it's "DOWN" that does the trick. You could imagine the comical expression on my face when I gave up and exclaimed "Down!" and Hairy promptly sat! All that months and years, only to find it's the word 'down' that works. Well, better late than never! :)
Had knee surgery, and so currently working on strengthening my knee with a lot of hiking. Lola is lovin' all that- that is when we aren't getting poured on by rain- so much rain lately in the last two weeks!
I am an aunt again! TWINS- a nephew and niece who were born last November. Was thrilled for my brother and sister-in-law at same time I knew I wasn't ready to meet the babies. I thought I would feel a pang of guilt- nope. More an awareness that I am not really into babies, more and more I got to think about it. More I stand aside to observe how there is this fanatic obsession about cute infant outfits, baby showers outcompeting others, showing off bumps and trading 'more-vomit-than-your-baby' stories, all that.
That drew me to realize that it was the society's drilling into us all that motherhood is prerequisite of us to be considered a significant citizen; that fertility is more important than intelligence and capability of individuals.
You know what?
Let's say I'm done with that.
