Snow Muggin'

Wanna see something cute? REALLY cute? My Tyler, a/k/a Mug Man standing in his first snow ever!

Don't you just want to smooch his little face? This pic was taken on Saturday just after the snow ended. With under an inch of snow and barely any freezing rain, I hesitate to call it a "winter storm" as it was forecast.

A big piece of it does sound quite yummy!

Anger. Dark. Ugly. Cruel.
Anger. Words spoken that leave me bleeding inside.
Anger. Then you went to sleep, leaving my spark to die.

Anger. Ice cold, but it will burn you like fire.
Anger. Empty. Alone.

A feeling that an injustice has been done.

Anger. No more excuses. Something has to change.
Anger. Taking my life back, not placing any blame.
Anger. I let you go and move on in spite of my fears.
So many tears shed, so many years.

This is what it feels like when love dies?
It wasn't love, a voice inside says.
Love would hold you and dry your eyes.
What have you lost? An infinite number of hopeless tries.

Anger. Grief.

Hairdryer heaven

It finally happened. My faithful hairdryer has gone to the next realm. My grandmother gave it to me for my 12th birthday. It was a red Clairol Son of a Gun dryer. Okay, so it's just a thing but when you have a hairdryer for sixteen years, it begins to feel like a part of you.

Enter new hairdryer: Ion Turbo. It dries my hair twice as fast, feels like it is actually doing something AND it is healthier for my hair. Impressive! When I use it, I feel like a new woman, a goddess of sorts. Last night I exercised for the first time in months, dressed up and went out on a real date with my man!

So ladies, if you feel your life (and your tresses) growing dull, take a trip to the beauty supply store. Change your hairdryer - CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

Hormone hell

Mine are all messed up right now. Left breast has been hurting badly… so bad this morning that it almost feels like it is cramping. And it's an itchy thing too! I probably need to see a doctor, but don’t know who to see. I asked a co-worker for recommendations but she hasn't gotten back to me yet.

I think it’s just hormones though, as my stomach is cramping awfully bad, and extreme fatigue just set in. I almost conked out here at my desk! This cycle is going to be a doozy.

You know something weird? Supposedly, women aren’t supposed to have coffee or chocolate around the time of a period, because it can make cramps and tenderness worse, and cause irritability. Then why is there caffeine in Midol PMS, which is supposed to help with the pain, tenderness and mood swings ?! What’s up with that?

I’m scared of caffeine right now. One cup of coffee yesterday and I was shaking like a leaf for hours afterward. Why am I so hypersensitive, physically, mentally, emotionally, to EVERY LITTLE THING?!

Awe struck

Now this is a blog that means something.


This morning I awoke with a headache, much akin to a migraine. As a result, I called in to work and only got in a half day. There is a lot of crap sitting on my desk awaiting attention Monday morning. I am sick of these headaches eating up my days and evenings. Maybe if I use one of those mouthpieces to prevent tooth gritting in my sleep, that will help.

I am already starting to lose interest in blogging. No one ever comments! It is just a little place online for me to post thoughts, but there is no reason for anyone to ever come here and read it, much less respond. What is the point? I talk to myself offline anyway, and reading this later has no benefit. *shrug*

Can I have some dirty rice with that?

Part of life as a pug owner is having to pay living expenses for oneself and one's pugs. This means a gal has to work. I am at work right now, about to pull my hair out because today has been full of interruptions, headaches, and Bojangles chicken. So I sit here swamped in legal documentation, belly aching from too much lunch, teeth and head throbbing, and could easily lay my head on the desk and start bawling. Instead, I am using this blog as one of those 'interruptions' I like to complain about. Doesn't make much since, does it? Okay okay, back to the grindstone.

This is my first entry. I picked the name Eau de Pug because my life revolves a LOT around two pugs, Puggy and Tyler. Chances are they will make guest appearances on a regular basis!
