I'm not sure why, but ever since we introduced our dog Lily to the pool, she loves taking a swim on the back of whoever will let her ride. She'll just lay her head on your head and bark until you start moving. Sounds silly, I know, but she loves it. You'll occasionally find her swimming or wading through the pool by herself if no one else will join her. She was a stray my son brought home over the summer. He couldn't stand looking at her sad eyes. She's a pit bull mix and a real sweetheart. We couldn't let her go once she came home that day.

I've been away from Blogging for so long now....I'm feeling guilty. Then I started thinking about WHY I wasn't using the blog to share thoughts, etc. So...for my birthday, I treated myself to a new look. Do you like the new design? I still have lots of work to do to finish tidying up, but it's close. The designer I hired did a fabulous job. It was quite easy and painless.

Then I started thinking I might just be bored with the subject matter. Not that I'm bored with movies but that the movies being released lately have been really boring. I felt like I was writing the same thing over and over---boring, slow, etc. Where are all the creative geniuses that are supposedly flooding Hollywood? Or is it their producers and movie houses that are taking away their creative license? Who knows...

Blogs I read are mostly about Moms sharing their everyday happenings, women sharing their life experiences, and of course (because I'm an Interior Designer), I always browse the blogs related to interiors. I'll continue to browse these for sure...but what of my own blog?

I'm thinking my blog may need a bit of tweaking in many areas. I'll try to be better about posting, but give me some time to think and re-create what I want to share.

football game 9.4.09
Last Friday night was the school football game. My oldest son is the school mascot. He had just gotten out of the costume when I took this photo. Poor guy was soaked it was so hot outside that night. He's giving his brother a loving hug--which doesn't happen often. Glad I got it on film... :) And yes, it's time for a haircut.
