Yesterday, I was at a Starbucks drive-thru when I was told, upon reaching the pay window, that the car in front of me had paid for my order. I was stunned by this display of kindness from a total stranger and touched by their generosity.

It also made me smile because it reaffirmed the belief that we're all in this together, watching out for each other during this pandemic.

I'd like to pay it forward, to bring a little ray of sunshine to someone else's day.

Please leave a comment here on the blog, or one of my social media platforms, and I'll gift one person $25.

The Dog, Piglet

Every time I sit down to blog, I inevitably end up on Instagram instead.

Probably because it's more fun to look at dogs doing stuff than working through this writing slump I'm in right now.

It's not even my Instagram that I'm constantly on, but Piglet's.

Yes, I've turned into that dogmom.

I mean, can you blame me when she's doing things like this?

Or, this?

And, this?

Let's not even talk about how much she loves horses.

Like, really loves horses.

Piglet's also really good at judging me:

Punking me:

And, schooling me:

But that's okay.

Because I know how much she loves me:

She's lucky she's punny.

I have a house.

We signed papers and get the keys tomorrow.

Now the important question is, what should I name the house?

Shall we take a tour?


Here's my new front door:

Isn't she pretty?

And my entry way:

Going up the stairs goes to the main part of the house, but my part of it will be to the right.

This is the laundry closet where the new washer and dryer have already been installed by the previous owners.

I CAN'T WAIT TO DO LAUNDRY, said no one ever.

And that's my living room! Staged by the realtors.

I don't have taste like that.

I'm actually not sure what my tastes are, but I guess we'll find out as I start decorating my place.

It's going to be bare for a while because I've decided to live a minimalist lifestyle.

Or, I'm poor and don't have the money to buy furniture.

Ya know?

But, I'm really excited about the little patio right outside the living room.

And, of course, the bedroom.

It's just going to be ALL bed. A queen-sized bed so that Piglet and I stop fighting over bedspace.

My bathroom, oh my buddha, my bathroom. The past two apartments that I've lived in had not quite optimal bathrooms in terms of setup and cleanliness (no matter how hard I cleaned) so I am ECSTATIC to have a brand new bathroom that no one's ever used before.

I'm going to roll around in that bathroom and feel like a million bucks.

It's the little things in life.

Speaking of little things, I'll have a little garage where I can park my car!

I've never had my own garage before and I can't wait to not ever have to look for street parking ever again.

Is this what "MAKING IT" means???


This is the deck that I'm super excited to sit out on every morning while I eat breakfast and play with Piglet before work.

Along with the yard.

I've been waiting for a yard to call my own so that I can play and train with Piglet at home.


And there you have it.

My new house.

What shall I call her?

I'm thinking: Sugar Daddy.

So, I can say things like:

"Can't wait to go home to Sugar Daddy."

"Having a Sugar Daddy costs me thousands of dollars a month."

"Yeah, the rent on my Sugar Daddy is really paying off."
