Remembering Reese

Monday, June 27th, 2022 No comments

Today would have been Reese’s 14th birthday. I miss him every day. I miss how spastic he was and how he couldn’t sit still for more than a few seconds, even if you were petting him. I miss how when you sat on the floor, he would put his head down and charge right into your crotch. I miss him sleeping on the couch or in his bed next to mine. I even miss him barking when someone came to the door. There have been a few times where I thought I saw him out of the corner of my eye, but then I remembered that he’s gone. He shows up a lot on my screensaver that pulls pictures from my photo albums. A lot of times I pause and remember and what was going on in that pic if I remember. I still plan on writing down as many memories as I can think of, especially ones that aren’t photographed. Reese was born days after my grandmother died. I used to jokingly say that she sent him to look after me. She was always looking after me. Happy birthday, my little prince. You are gone too soon.

Happy 30th To Me

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008 No comments

Man, I’ve been neglecting this blog for a while. Whenever I think about updating, I get distracted by other stuff.

I figured I would update today because it’s my 30th birthday. It’s been a great day. I didn’t even mind that I had to work. Some of my co-workers decorated my cubicle. I was kind of expecting something, but I didn’t know for sure if it would happen. I got a card that everybody signed and even got some chocolate candy. Mostly everyone congratulated me and made jokes about my age. For a while I forgot about all of the stuff I’ve been bitching about on Twitter concerning so-called optional work-related social interactions.

I didn’t do much tonight. I watched the muppets Christmas special, put together some doggie stairs, and put up a coat rack. Very exciting!

This weekend I’m going to Birmingham to see Avenue Q. I don’t know what else we’ll do, but it should be fun.

Thanks to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday. I really had a great day.
