How Tetley got his name......

Warning this post may be sad, I warn you now to go get a box of tissues.

On Friday Tetley the family dog was put to sleep. Tetley was originally my dog for the first three years of his life then my parents claimed him and then he became theirs. HE was half Shepard half black lab. He was all black except for a small white patch on his chest. He usually weighed around 116 when he was healthy and was 14. He did a lot for me I have always been very afraid of dogs until him, I was bit as a child so that's why. He was a wonder dog his personality was nothing but sweet. Clipie and I could not decide what to name him and the, naming game had dragged on for a bit, one afternoon we were getting ready to go to the store and i had a coupon for tea, Tetley Tea and that is how he got is name from the brand of tea. Fitting for a dog who's spirit was just as sweet at the tea we drink.

Since I was un able to be with him( i was was devastated about that) my sis went home to be with Mom and Dad and Tetley during this time. So a huge Thank you to her for stepping in when I was un able. I had to say my good byes to him over the phone. My sister held the phone up so he could hear me. I thought that she was listening in on my conversation with him when she started balling. When in fact he had started licking the telephone and then that was not enough he cuddled up to sis as if to say he loved me back just as much as I loved him.

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

Life

Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …

I want to live in Bexley

Of course you will not know this song however i must express myself

I want to live in Bexley
So I can drive a big car
I want to live in Bexley
So I can act like a big star

At least that's the way I remember the parody song in my head. This lovely song was composed by two male disk jockeys who hosted the pop music station in my home town. At the time Bexley was "the" place to live. So those who cant afford to live there naturally make fun of the people who do (do men really change as they grow older?) Today I was thinking about that song clipie and I went to Springhill Tn, drove through Franklin Tn, then we came to two little towns called Brentwood and Oak Hill. I must say I have seen some huge homes in my time I've been to parade homes worth millions and had more than 10,000 sq feet so yes I've seen big. However I have never seen a community of homes so big I would not be able to gander upon how big they were. Let my try to compare most of them, they made our old tow…
