This first one is a picture of my old rat who died a few years ago. His name was Dusty, he was the third rat I had and having he and his brother really grew my love of rats. I now have 4 male rats and couldn't be happier with them as pets.
I used to be completely afraid of spiders. Now when I find them in my house, I pick them up and take them back outside.
For some weird reason I love grim reapers. I think it comes from my love of Halloween. I would decorate my whole apartment with them but my hubby won't let me...lol
Chocolate truffles. They are my favorite treat. I usually buy myself one box at christmas time from a place called Figis, because Figis has the best chocolate truffles I've ever had.
I am constantly listening to music. I listen to music when I am reading, writing, playing on the computer. All the time.
Skulls...I think it's the same fascination that I have with grim reapers that has made me a lover of skulls. I have a rose colored glass skull on my shelf that I find fascinating.
Computers...I am on the computer playing, writing and on fb.
Coffee, coffee...coffee...'Nuff said. lol
Dragons. I have started collecting dragons and wizards recently. I used to collect Unicorns abut now my collecting has focused to dragons. They are so cool.
I read like a mad woman. I have to many bookshelves in my little apartment that my hubby said we may need to move just so I have a room for just books. lol
Normal? Me? nope...I'm about as crazy as can be and sarcastic as hell...lol
Bee's....I hate bee's. I have a phobia so bad that I literally can't stand to look at them. lol
More skulls...lol Because they are soo cool.
I like pictures of butterflies. I don't know why, they are so pretty. After we painted the bathroom when we first moved in here, I put rub on butterflies all over my bathroom. When my hubby walked into the bathroom when I was done, he about flipped out. LOL They butterflies stayed for a few years until we painted again.

Life changes so quickly and we never see some things coming. I didn't see my mother's death coming, at least not this soon and not this fast with no warning signs at all. I knew things were going to take some time and they are, I'm slowly getting out of my depressed hole that I've been in for too long. My little brother has been there for me every single day since this has happened and I love him to pieces for that. I think we are keeping each other sane by talking each day.
My little brother is coming into town next weekend and I get to see him. he's taking my daughter for a couple of weeks when his son will be with him. The two of them are just a couple of years apart in age and I think it will be good for them to have some time together after losing their grandma. My husband lost his mother just a few months ago so my daughter lost both of her grandmother's in a very short time and I know it's affected her.
I've been going through old pictures a lot lately and buying a few more photo albums to put the hundreds of new pictures I got from my mom's place. My hubby laughs because it seems I am the keeper of the photos for my family. I have over 20 large photo albums and now have about 300 more pictures to label and put in albums. I'm quickly running out of storage space for them. lol
Looking through all the pictures has been helping and I've been making scrapbooks for a few years now. I have three scrapbooks that I made in the past three years and am putting together some old pictures to make another one. Anything that will keep me busy and my mind off of things is good right now. All i can do is get through each day and hope the next one is better than the last.
