If you know me, you know I'm a planner. I hardly ever do things on a whim.

I decided at 4:00 yesterday afternoon that I was going to drive to New Orleans to surprise my love! They were playing a show there and yes, it is a 3 hour drive from here but I figured, what the heck? Why not? You only live once, right? So, I left work at 4:00 and drove straight there and made it right on time!

I had such an adrenaline rush! It was so exciting to think about seeing him and him being totally and completely surprised and that, he was. Such a great moment!

Yeah, I got home at 2:00 am and had to be at work at 8:00 but it was worth every hour of driving and lost sleep. I would totally do it all over again. Oh, the things you'll do for love :)

Together again :)

My love doing his job. He's amazing at it and I'm SO proud. Im his biggest fan :)

I'm currently housesitting for Ben's family as his parents are out of town. They have a German Shepherd named Breitling and I adore him. He's kept in their fence and very much likes company. I've made sure to feed and water him consistently and I also make sure I go straight to see him every morning and right when I get home from work. He's precious and so loveable and Ben refers to him as his "son". They have a very close bond. Well, I got home late last night and immediately checked on him, changed his water and loved on him. He was all good. I went to bed and when I awoke to go and check on him, he was GONE. My heart literally felt as though it fell out of my chest and I went into sheer panic mode. I called my boss and notified him that I would likely be late for work. I drove around frantically screaming his name, crying, praying and hoping he hadn't gone to the main hwy that they live off of. I simply couldn't live with myself if something had happened to him while he was in my care. Well, I found him- roaming about the neighborhood and he jumped right in my car as if nothing ever happened. It's a good thing he's so cute!

Make that two dog rescues in one week! More on that later.

Loved yesterday! Loved surprising Ben and being in his arms again. Do not love today so much. It's been a whirlwind since the moment I woke up. LITERALLY. Streesed, I am. Looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation tonight.

*My sincere apologies for my lack of comments lately. Please know that I am not the least bit disinterested. Life has been a wee bit crazy.
