I've been thinking a lot about my grandmother lately. It's been about 7 years since she died, and it's pretty surreal...I can't believe its been so long.

I can't help but think about the last time I saw her. I went to go visit her in the hospital with my dad. My dad left the room for one reason or another, and my grandmother gave me her engagement and her wedding ring. She told me to take care of them. To be honest I have no idea where they are. I had them on a chain and I wore them around my neck for four years. One day the chain broke and I put them into a little glass jar. Since then I've gone through two moves. I have no idea where that jar is...

Lately I just wish she knew that I was in vet school. She wasn't alive long enough to know that this is what I wanted to do with my life and now it's just something I wish I could have told her. I know she would have really liked it - she was obsessed with Boston Terriers. In the last time I talked to her, she made me promised that I would never be a nurse. Is it ironic that I was a vet tech for two years of my life? Who knows.

Oh, and I finally thought of something I can tattoo on my body if I ever decided to get a one. I know it's really dorky and somewhat morbid, but once Maggie gets sick or she dies or something like that, I want to get a small portrait of her face and around the picture it would say "My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free." That way I can have two things I love - my dog and Tom Robbins - tattooed on me. Probably by the time something like that happens I'll change my mind. I'm so fickle.

Anyway, I'm done being morbid for now. I ate too much mac and cheese and my belly hurts. I can't WAIT until Thanksgiving...I'm sooo really for a delicious turkey meal. And mashed potatoes. And pumpkin pie. Mmmmm......
