When you have curly, thick, fluffy hair at work…

I work as a developer during my day job – and in the IT world, well, we’re all a bunch of geeks and nerds. (Which, let’s face it, is THE BEST!) Anyway, we quote movies, talk about movies, comic books, cartoons… and sometimes reenact them, as well. And, since I have fluffy hair – well, this is what happens.

We have no kids, and we are perfectly okay

The humor in this may be a little dark for some people. However, it’s something that just sort of spilled out and it was very therapeutic for me to draw. We have no kids. We wanted kids. I have wanted to be a mother for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately that just wasn’t in the cards. (I have a brief blog I wrote on my infertility journey, in case you’re interested to read more.)

I’ve come to appreciate my life as it is, with no kids, with lots of fur babies, and lots of nieces and nephews to spoil. And that’s fine! It’s a great life. I’m not less for not being a parent.

Some people just need to be reminded of that. 😉

Meet Dug, our newest fur baby!

For those who don’t know our newest cuddle bug yet, meet Dug. He’s a 50 lb., sweet-as-pie, lovable, huggable, kissable, Tazmanian devil with a bundle of energy. We got him from a wonderful local rescue called Southern Skies at 8 months old. They had originally named him Douglas and – since we love Dug from the movie, Up, well… it seemed an obvious choice.

And it suits him. 🙂
