these are the reasons I like animals better than most people I know. 

 They never lie, or judge. 

 They love unconditionally, without strings. 

 They don't care if I am skinny, fat, ugly, or gorgeous. 

Good mood, bad mood, sad, excited, they just love me through it all. 

I am not perfect, I am hard to handle, a little wild and out of control, but they just accept me.  They never say, you're a bitch, and you're loud!!  They know that and accept that, that is who I am.  Without the bitchiness, and the opinionated loudness, I would not be me.  I would be like 99% of the worlds population, instead I am a part of the 1% crowd.  We are unique, bitchy, loud, opinionated, rowdy, grab life by the balls and hang on because it is a wild ride, type of crowd. 

To survive life you must find the humor, and look for something good in everyday.  I am just figuring that part out, at 49 1/2 yrs old, I am just now figuring out to look for 1 good thing everyday.  Even if I just enjoy a cup of cocoa, or a walk with the dogs, horses, some part of the day I smiled, and that is a good thing.

One of my favorite things is when I am relaxing in the evening and I have 4 cats, and a chihuahua in the chair with me.....lol  Another is when Tank{130lbs} or Roccee`{100 lbs} get up in my chair, on my lap, all sprawled from armrest to armrest. 

I pity the folks who take life so seriously they can't enjoy it.  What a sad life that must be....

I am a bitch to husband a lot! I am not proud of it, I don't even admit I know I am. I am trying to change, but Men are like children and all I want to do is yap, yap, yap at him. I am 48, with a 4yr old who is easier to take care of than him. I to, love animals, but at this point in time ~ there is NO time for me to take care of anyone else, I barely can take care of ME! There was a time when I was loud and bitchy and would say anything that was on mind. I didn't like myself then. I went a long time being a little quieter, my husband comes from a very quiet environment. I come from a very loud family. I get more respect by being more respectful, I guess that's what I was trying to say. Plus, with a new little girl in our lives, I want her to learn family togetherness, and values. I am trying to calm the bitchiness towards my husband. Nice story ~ I enjoyed reading it, Take care, and be who you are most comfortable to be.
