Let's just start by saying, "Hello, my name is Colleen. This is my site. Welcome."
I had absolutely no idea what my first blog entry should be. An introduction? I did that...right? Something inspirational or completely ridiculous? I just had no idea. So I did what I usually do when needing some sort of insight I looked to my photos. Looked through my phone and insta, just trying to draw some inspiration and IT WORKED!!! The only thing that makes sense to talk about first is my main Ts. My fur babies. One of the main reasons I make that money and always want to be home...meet Temperance (Temp, Goose, Pumpkin, Peach) and Tuani (Tutu).
These two are why I exist. Does that sound crazy??? Sure does. Does that change anything?? Hell no. They are a constant and even though my Temp has separation anxiety and only throws up on my bed and Tuani will occasionally bite me on the calf I still love them more than most humans. Now for their introductions.
This wonderful creature is my true love. I mean look at that face!! A Pit bull lab mix, which is by far one of the greatest combinations in the verse, is between 7 and 9 years old. Rescued by a friend and found her forever home with me. A rescued bait dog, I won't get on my soap box just yet, she has the sweetest disposition I have ever encountered. A giant love bug with an appetite for chew toys and belly rubs. Serious pit bull love. I could go on and on about this girl...like really I should write a book, Temperance Penelope: The Golden Goose, perfect already have a book title. You could ask any one of my friends what I love most in this world and their answer would be Temp. Any creature I see that has eyes I always say, "Oh it looks like Temp." I miss her when I leave my house be it for 5 minutes or a shift at work. It's a real obsession I have with this little peach and I don't feel bad about it.
My Queen. I was 19 years old and had just moved out on my own to see if I could do the whole independence thing, I was at work and a co-worker comes in with a kitten and says, "Do you want a kitten?" How do you say no to that? A kitten the size of your palm just given to you when you've just experienced what living alone feels like, we all know what I am talking about that moment when you get home and want to talk to someone and there is no one, so here she is...my new roommate. Fast forward 9 years and she loves my now human roommate more than me. We still have our moments and I know she loves me, or at least that's what I tell myself, but she is still my girl. My tutu. I have every scar to prove it. What I found out a couple weeks after getting her was she is a barn cat so that being said she has much more spirit than your typical house cat. She does what she wants and won't change for anyone...really she is an inspiration and what I strive to be everyday.
There you have it...the perfect introduction to me through my loves.
