Interesting little snippets from my life

I have a sweet puppy named Axle. He's great. He's a yellow lab, and the best thing in the world. I don't know what I would do without him.
My little cousin, Raylon, starts kindergarten next week. I can't believe she's going to be 6 in October. I wish she was still a baby. I'm praying that she doesn't go to kindergarten and tell her teacher that when she grows up she wants to be a Hooter girl like her Mimi. I'm not a Hooter girl anymore, so maybe she's forgot about that little dream of hers.
When I was little, I had pet birds. One was blue, and his name was Blue Birdie, one was white, and her name was Snowball, and one was a cockatiel and her name was Baby Sunshine. Sometimes, I wish I still had a pet bird.
One Christmas, Tiffany and I decided that our grandmother needed a pet, since she lived by herself. Mind you, she was perfectly happy by herself, and was quite content with just her grandchildren there at various times. Anyways, we got the bright idea to get her a bird. She wasn't very happy, but Molly stayed a part of our family until one day, Molly just "flew right out the door"
I was a cheerleader when I was in middle school. For one year. That was enough. I quickly decided that I didn't really like girls. And I really didn't like to cheer.
After I was a cheerleader though, I somehow got talked into coaching Jr.Pro cheerleading for two years while I was in high school. I loved it, and loved my girls. Most of them were 5 then, they're alot older and bigger now. It seems so long ago.
I never thought I would leave my small town. NEVER. I had my life planned out. I would graduate high school, get married to my then boyfriend, and have a family. I never saw working in my mind, I never saw college, I never saw anything but my one redlight town. Boy did that change. Now I'm in Knoxville, 3 hours away from my one redlight town, not married, and in cosmetology school...

And couldn't be happier
