Wall-E Tails: Small Adventures and Starfish turning to Metal

Wall-E Tails: Small Adventures and Starfish turning to Metal

Mom and Dad got up early on Sunday and we went on a little adventure!

It was only down to the grocery store, but everything was wet from the fog and the smelly smells were out in abundance! Mom and Dad kept telling me to keep walking every time I found a really good smell. It wasn’t fair! How am I supposed to learn what these smells are if Mom and Dad won’t let me smell them and figure them out?

Finally, when we got down to the grocery store, Daddy went inside and Mom stayed outside with me. I wanted to go in with Daddy so bad, but Mom said something about it not being healthy for me to go into a store full of food.

But Wall-E’s love food. I love all that kind of food. I’ve never had that food, but I know that if you let Wall-E try it, Wall-E would love it!

Alas, we continued to stay outside the store with all the good food smells coming from it. Mom and I hung out outside the store and I watched all the people drive by and walk in to where Daddy was.

I even tried to sneak in, but since I was tethered to Mom, so she wouldn’t run off of course, I couldn’t get inside.

So we sat and we waited.

and we waited some more.

It was very cold on this hard beach ball table.

Wait, what is this?

A … starfish? Mom these don’t look like the starfish we see at the beach.

What? Someone turned them into metal? Well that wasn’t very nice at all, was it?

Well as Mom and I continued to talk about the mean people who turned the starfish to metal there was a guy who came out of the food store with a big noisy thing and it was scary. It made so much noise and was big and dark looking. (Mom says it was a trolley that carries bread in and out of the store from the delivery truck.)

All I know is that it was so scary, I was shaking and I even peed a little. Then Daddy came out and rescued me from the big scary noise. Mom was too busy giggling at me. She just doesn’t understand how scary the world can be with you’re so little. She held me and told me everything was going to be okay, but she was giggling.

Daddy saved me though. Maybe I need to just go on adventures with Daddy if Mommy is just going to laugh at me when I get a-scareded.

My Weighty Story: Progress

So it’s been two weeks since things were rightly back on track. Yes, things are still very busy for me, and this will be a very short post, but I wanted to share something with you.

IMG_2068

Yup… that says I’m down 2.5 pounds since I weighed in. The thing that makes this THAT much more AWESOME … I just weighed in on Monday! I had forgotten to weigh in last Friday, so I weighed in Monday this week.

You can also see that I have gained a bunch of the weight back that I had lost. I was up to 70 pounds lost, but I found a few of those pounds. It’s all good, I just have to get back on track and move it!

However, I am cringing a bit at MyFitnessPal’s English on the second line.

“kimringer’s lost 56.5 lbs so far.”

Shouldn’t it be “Kimringer lost 56.5 lbs so far.”  or “Kimringer has lost 56.5 lbs so far.” ?

Oh my dear… the more I look at it, the more I cringe.

The fact it says that I lost weight almost makes up for it’s grammatical issues. (I am not going to say my grammar is wonderful. I make TONS of mistakes. This is just me throwing stones in a glass house.)

Anyways, WOO WOO! 2.4 POUNDS THIS WEEK!

Gotta run… literally. See you as soon as I can.

January, Blogging and Where have you been Kimberly?!

January, Blogging and Where have you been Kimberly?!

Happy Monday everyone.

I haven’t forgotten about everyone here on my blog, Unfortunately, life has taken on a life of it’s own at the moment, and therefore I will be posting sporadically throughout January and hope that February will bring a consistent schedule.

Wall-E will have stories to tell (including chasing those darn chickens at Grandma-ma’s house), there will be WIP updates (on Chloe’s Ghost, Helena (the 3rd book in TFA trilogy), and editing of The Five Angels) including updates on my search for an agent, and finally my Get Healthy Project is back in full swing, so there will be updates on that front also.

The plan is to post three times a week as follows:

Monday: Wall-E Tails

Wednesday: Author Day

Friday: My Weighty Story (aka the Get Healthy Project)

However, until some things have been taken “off the plate” so to speak, blogging is going to be sporadic. I am truly sorry and I hope you will bear with me for a few more weeks.

Much love and I will be still checking out blogs when I can so you won’t be able to get rid of me quite that easily.

Happy 2015 everyone.

Wall-E Tails: Going and Going!

Wall-E Tails: Going and Going!

Mom has been so busy lately, but I’ve been lucky because so much of what she has been doing is at Grandma-ma’s house so I’ve gotten to go with her!

IMG_2049

First it was Christmas.

We spent Christmas Eve at Granny and Grandpops and I got a new rope toy. Everyone gave me lots of lovies for Christmas.

Then on Christmas morning we went to Grandma-ma’s house and I found a new lap to keep warm. It was PA! I’ve missed PA. He knows how to spoil a doggy the RIGHT way.

IMG_2013

Pa was a great lovie giver. I spent as much time as I could on Pa’s lap.

Then Sister Rachel came over to spend the week with Sister Catalina. I tells ya, I’m just now realizing how much lovies I get. I’m a pretty lucky puppino. Though, I am PRINCE WALL-E MAGNIFICO PUPPINO so I guess I’m just getting all the lovies I rightly deserve.

One day when we were at Grandma-ma’s Penelope decided to play hide and seek.

I looked all outside for her and I couldn’t find her.

I looked in the kitchen, living room, and even out in the doggy pen off of Grandma-ma’s bathroom.

I couldn’t find her at all. Where could she have gone?

I was starting to get worried when …

IMG_2039

I FOUND HER! Silly Penelope!

See I’m not the only doggy who likes to get under the covers.

Mom said that it’s a new year, but I don’t know what that means.  I wonder if that means I get to go on more adventures?

What Mom? It does?

/gets so excited and tries really really hard not to piddle. (See Mandy! I try so very hard. )

IMG_2050

Ok Mom!  I’m in the car.

Let’s get going on those new adventures!

A Post About Not Posting.

A Post About Not Posting.

Yup, it’s THAT week. The week that so many take off blogging because of everything else going on in the world.

So what’s this? A Blog Post?

Well, HA! I’ve gotcha. This is a blog post about the blog posts that will be non-existent this week.

I’ve got way too much sewing still to do, plus my Grandpa is coming up tomorrow, and I want to spend as much time with him as possible over the next week.

So, here is my “I’M ON A VACATION FROM BLOGGING THIS WEEK” post.

If you are lucky enough to be able to spend the holidays with your family, enjoy them. Don’t forget to “Love them and call them George.”

If you are lucky (yes, I purposefully said lucky, because you are with a very special person) enough to be married to a soldier, but they are unable to be home this holiday, well, I’m sorry your loved one won’t be home. Tell them thank you for their dedication and service from me and my family.

If you will be alone this year for the holidays, by choice or otherwise, curl up with a good book (I have a few suggestions in my sidebar there ) and a cup of hot cocoa.

Happy Holidays everyone.

Wall-E Tails: IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!

Wall-E Tails: IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!

IMG_2004

Today is my birthday and I’m 3 years old!!!

Wonder what kinds of treats I’ll get today?

Wonder if I’ll get to see my cousins today?

What does a birthday even mean?

Wonder how much longer I need to be a good boy here at Mom’s work?

I wonder….. Just what kind of trouble I can get into today without really getting in trouble?

What Mom? Oh no. Wall-E won’t get in any trouble today. I’m not like Bongo who get’s in all kinds of mischief.

Wall-E is a good boy! Wall-E is an angel!

I’m going to Hogwarts!

I don’t watch the news. I don’t read a newspaper. The only way I have half a mind of what is going on in the world is the little bit I hear in the morning from the hubby’s radio and if it shows up on my homepage on the computer, and to be honest, 95% of what shows up there, is total CRAP. (Really Yahoo. A CRUCIAL UPDATE is not what Paris Hilton wore to some non-existent gala. )

However, even in my “ignorance is bliss” state, I’ve heard about the children slaughtered in an act of hatred (terrorism, political gain, whatever, its hatred). This is so beyond wrong that there is no scale to measure it. Children are the vision of innocence and everything that the world CAN be.

I don’t understand holy wars that in so many cases come down to he said / she said 2,000+ years ago. I don’t understand how people who say they are fighting in the name of a god to have others worship said god can go and do the things that they are doing. Yes, they are radicals. No, I’m not going to sit here and nit-pick over religion and religious theology.

I am of the mind that you should respect others belief systems. I personally don’t care if you worship God, Allah, Gaia, Zeus, Budda, Disney, Warner Brothers, The Winchesters (Sam and Dean… ok and Cas too), The Doctor, or a damn pebble on the ground. If you aren’t hurting anyone, then who am I to judge?

This goes to things on a smaller scale also. The yearly debate of whether it is Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or Happy Hanukah or Happy Kwanzaa, or whatever. I say Happy Holidays. Yes, it’s the political correct way to give someone happy greetings during this time of year, but if someone says any of the other greetings, I smile and say “And to you too.” Whatever you believe is the reason for this holiday season, who am I to judge? If you are happy, not hurting anyone else, then WHO THE HELL CARES!

WHY CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG!

On Facebook, there was this little thing that made me laugh. I’m not sure you’ll be able to read the screenshot, so I’ll repeat what they said:

If you had to chose between world peace or going to Hogwarts what house would you choose?

My response was:

I don’t think there is a way for people to have a free mind and have world peace at the same time. People (as a society / generalization) don’t tend to allow people to have a difference of opinion on something and just let them be. Therefore, I’m going to Hogwarts.

There were two responses:

1. A logical explanation of the idea of world peace.

2. Which means she is headed to Ravenclaw.

So anyone else heading for Platform  9 3/4? I got my ticket.
