Small things in life...

As I sit here on this Saturday night composing this blog, i reflect on things that i am very thankful for.  On this particular night, it isn't anything big, but rather 3 rather small things, pepper, tigher, and precious.

They are three amazing gifts that have been given to me or that I was directed towards and they are my kitties.  They have been part of my life for the almost the past three years.  I have had pepper for the longest.  I picked her up in 2004 with my ex in coronado as a play partner for Thomas.

I have pictures of the little girl sleeping on me and a few cute pics of her around the house.  She really became my heart and when my ex moved out, aside from the obvious hurt, there was the hurt of missing the closest thing to a daughter i have ever had.  I would look back on pics of pepper and cry thinking about my failed relationship and the fact that pepper was no longer in my life.

Precious and Tigher we picked up in florida to give pepper play pals while we were away.  Tigher and her brother socks came home with us but we realized after the first day that we had to take socks back because he was just too hornry.  We picked out Precious, a cute little tuxedo, in socks' place.

When my ex returned to california in October, I was left with the three girls and spent many nights playing with them, nuzzling them on the couch, and having them sleep with me at night with the door closed.  The bond was solidified.  They knew my place as provider and protector and I realized the place in my heart that these three had notched out in my heart

When i came home that night in december and saw pepper was gone, it was as a piece of my life was gone, in more ways than one.  I was thankful for still having precious and tigher in my world.  Had they all three left, i think my state would have been worse.

I got the call a few weeks ago telling me that pepper was coming home.  I was so excited.  I told the girls and they seemed disinterested, but I knew that they were really looking forward to her return.

Upon her return there was lots of hissing but after weeks it has subsided and it is like no time has passed and they are best of friends...again.

Thanks to the universe for bringing her back into my life.  I am so blesed.  So as my title says, it is the small things in life that keep me happy.

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …

Movie Review: The Family Fang- 4.5 out of 5 stars

Narrator:  Imagine your dead. Feel yourself go numb. Start with your fingers, move to your hands, your wrists, right on up to your elbows. Everything is dead. If we can imagine our own death, but still manage to come back to life, then it proves we can survive, anything.

Baxter Fang: Don't be afraid. Own the moment. If you're in control then the chaos will happen around you and not to you.

This was one of the best and possibly overlooked movies of 2015 (which is why I am just now reviewing it in 2016) in my humbled opinion.  Jason Bateman is not only an incredible actor, but an extremely talented director.  I was never a fan of arrested development (probably because I never watched it).  However, after seeing Bad Words and now The Family Fang, I have a whole new respect for Jason Bateman
