There has been an exciting new development since the ice trays! We recently ordered Dusty a new collar. We had to get her a new one, because she, being Dusty, rolled in something gross and got her old collar all dirty and messed up. Since it's (supposed to be) spring, we decided to get her something flowery and bright. We ordered it off the internet, because we didn't wan't to go to a store that's really far from home and Kriser's didn't have anything cute. It came in the mail today, and here it is!
You know you're sick when the best part of your day if finding these ice trays:
I don't much like popsicles. The rest of my family loves popsicles when they're sick, but I just like ice. That's why I was so happy when I found these ice trays. Our normal ice trays just make normal ice in the shape of cubes. These make ice in the shape of... hmmm... Like little ice popsicles, but without the popsicle stick. I know, I'm weird. But you can't blame me, I'm sick.
I was just sick not that long ago!
I hate being sick.
I made my happy list, so here's a sad list. Of stuff I hate about being sick.
feeling sick (obviously)
throwing up (bleugh)
can't get up and go outside
sitting in my dark room all day
can't play with dusty
can't drink a lot of water (if I puke) even if I'm thirsty
don't feel like eating
have to make up a ton of homework when I go back to school
I always seem to miss fun stuff
going to the doctor
don't see my friends for a long time
it's so booooring
and a lot more too
:( I hope I can go to school tomorrow and see the v-show!
So it's a rainy afternoon, the thor guard has just gone off and I haven't started my homework. We just finished dinner, and I'm just sitting in the living room looking out the window at the pouring rain. Dusty is in the basement, cuddled in her blanket probably asleep. My brother is in the dining room with his computer, highlighting things in his open history book. It's going to get dark pretty soon. The rain starts letting up, but it never completely stops. It continues at a heavy drizzle. So what do I decide to do? Now would be a great time to go for a run. So I get my running clothes on, with some double layered pants and a stretchy running jacket. My mom is coming with, and we both get our iPods and put our earbuds in, and off we go. We got this little interval timer called a GymBoss, so we run for 45 seconds then walk for 1 minute. We were planning on doing a three mile run/walk, so right when we get pretty far away from our house it starts pouring rain. There was lots of thunder and lightening, so we didn't do the full three miles. We both got soaked, but it was actually really fun.
These are some of the things that make me HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!

Welcome to Maura's Blog!
Hi, it's Maura! I have a dog, I run cross country, and you no longer have to read this blog because that pretty much sums up everything on here.
Check out my front page to see the books I want to read, if you want too, I can't force you to but you can if you want, well I don't know now I confused myself now so never mind.
As you can see, Dusty helps with the pictures. :D Thanks for being so cute, Dusty! Also, don't get confused. Dusty had darker fur when she was little, but she was tan underneath! Nope, I don't have two dogs.
The pictures on the top of this page and on my homepage are pictures I took at the Botanic Gardens, and I thought they went well with this theme, so.... yep!
