munki bear

we are in the market for a water dish with a rubber suction of sorts so munki wont be able to scoot/splash her water dish everywhere...its becoming quite the annoyance.she is so thirsty all the time but won't drink from her dish so i am used to her running in the bathroom with me and eagerly awaiting for me to turn the faucet water on.. and knocking our cups of water over. everyday.all the time.we cannot leave it for one second or we hear the way too familiar plop/splash sound.grrr. so i carry my cup of water everywhere,even tucking it into the couch with me.it should not be like this. oh the things we do for our pets.
i got a zoo pass on monday with my sister.it was cold that day but we still got to see the huge aquariam. he loooves it. and we got to see snakes and monkeys which he also loves and makes the sound for both of them. [a lispy hsss and high pitched aah-aah] words he is saying- kitty,bible,thankyou,kick it,daddy,pac [for paci and he actually says 'ass']. he says thankyou so perfectly its so cute.and he always wants to read his bible. [well..read, point to the sheep,same thing]
ive started a new 'job' of sorts-cleaning houses.well currently one and may pick up 1-3 more if i really like it.i have a couple friends that did it full time for years and i mentioned i was interested.so i got referred and i have started cleaning-its actually a friend from church so it's great people to start with. its always funner to clean other people's houses.put on the ipod and you're good to go.i am enjoying it the only hard part is managing time and focusing on the right things.i get a little perfectionist-y and want to go crazy cleaning every little thing and i don't have time for that.i'm sure ill adjust and get in a rhythm and if i still like it ill take on a couple more..2-4 hours a week per house and most people need it every other week. i thought about quitting starbucks as this pays more than twice as much.but i love the social part of working there and again,the discount.so who knows. but i do so love the random odd job.
nothing much just so glad i'm finally over being sick and enjoying the weather warming up again [tuesday morning it was snowing!] one of the books i am reading right now is irresistable revolution by shane claiborne. i'm not like eating up every page nonstop but it is definitly inspiring and full of 'yes! yes yes' moments/paragraphs. where to go from there. and i want to do things that my son sees and can be involved in....
a couple random cravings- cornhole, haircut, milkshake, a walk. tattoo.... sunshine.
