Is the grass really greener? Maybe it's just the lighting.

Rudy Huxtable is grown up and has the seemingly perfect job. She is happy and paid well and content with where her life is.. then another job comes her way, one that she would have taken in a heartbeat earlier. Too little too late? Or does she take the chance?

Obviously in this case, Cliff Huxtable (or Claire for that matter) would offer a perspective previously unseen followed by amazing advice. Our lives, for the most part, are not part of a sitcom.. so what advice would your inner Cliff or Claire give? Would YOU stick with what makes you happy now, or risk it all for what would have made you happy then?

I got a fortune cookie once that read "Imagine you could get what you want.." Wow, true story. Let's play along with this text and imagine. Not too much though. Over analyzing is never a flattering trait, so skip it. Forget about the fortune for now Rudy, throw it away and stick with what you know works.

Maybe it is just the lighting after all.. because that grass on the other side is starting to look a little dingy to me.

Week at the Coast

Aaaaaaaah, just got back from a week on the water! What a much needed break from life here in the real world. We started with a five day trip to Destin, followed by a trip up to the coast house for the remainder of the weekend. The food was amazing but the company was even better.. it was great to have my sisters and their husbands, my nephew, my boyfriend, and all of our dogs together for our mini summer vacation!

The day has come, just call me basket-case Terry

Though I'll never ever refer to him as such, Friday morning I took 'Boots' (my Toyota 4Runner) in for the Cash for Clunkers government incentive. In return I now have a new 2009 Honda Civic, but for today I am not thinking of the better gas days and the smaller eco-footprint days that lie ahead.. no, instead I am thinking of my old friend 'Boots' and the times we have had together.

As for Basil, he may hate my decision to "evolve" cars.. but we made a long trip last weekend in 'Boots' and he loved every minute (per usual).. attached is a photo of Basil in his favorite spot, drooling out the back window for the world to see.
