Song Time Sunday

As I think of the things that I want to write about in the coming weeks, I bring you a prelude of posts to come:

I do so love finding artists that are virtually unknown by the general public. The problem with that is that they are usually not from here, so seeing them in concert can be difficult if not impossible. A couple of years ago I had a chance to see Missy Higgins in concert at a small venue here in Indianapolis, but I couldn't find someone to go with me, so I didn't go. I STILL kick myself about that and that is NOT a mistake I will make again!

Maybe if others here in "the states" know about this Aussie, she'll venture over here again.

Check her out!

Lyrics to "Where I Stood"

I don't know what I've done
Or if I like what I've begun
But something told me to run
And honey, you know me
It's all, or none
There were sounds in my head
A little voice is whispering
That I should go, and this should end
But then I found myself listening

Cuz I don't know, who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don't know if I could stand, another hand upon you,
All I know is that I should

Cuz she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

See I thought love was black and white
if it was wrong, or it was right
But you aint leaving without a fight and I think I am just as torn inside

Cuz I don't know, who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don't know if I could stand, another hand upon you,
All I know is that I should

Cuz she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

And I wont be far from where you are if ever you should call
You meant more to me than anyone I ever loved at all
But you taught me how to trust myself

And so I say to you...
This is what I have to do

Cuz she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood
She who dares to stand where I stood

You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone

I am not crazy.  Trust me.  I know that our pets are not kids.

But for me, Sasha is the closest I may get to having a child of my own (somewhat sad, I know).  When I got her a few years ago as a puppy, I made sure that I carved out time to spend bonding with her, training her and just making sure she was a great addition to my household.

One of the best things I feel like I ever did for her was to get her micro-chipped.  Yes, Marion County requires that you microchip your pets, but I did it for the peace of mind.  If she ever runs away or gets out, it may not keep her from getting injured, but if somebody is able to get a hold of her, it may help them make sure she gets back to me.


It's a REALLY tiny microchip (about the size of a grain of rice).  It's also a simple procedure that takes just a second for a qualified person to do.

So, if you're in central Indiana and want to have your pet microchipped, today only the Indianapolis Humane Society is offering low-cost microchipping from 10 AM to 2 PM.  For a minimum donation of just $7, your furry child can be microchipped!  If you can put a price on the love that comes from those wet nose-nuzzles, let's just say $7 is a STEAL, folks!

The Ultimate Blog Party

It's been a while since I shared any of my adventures in crossing things off of my list and that is simply a shame!  I've also been a bit remiss in blogging the last couple of months AND I keep promising to update you on several things about projects, my thoughts and feelings on a variety of subjects and ALL of the things that have been going on personally for me.

Well!  That's enough procrastinating for me!  As they say, if you want shade, when is the best time to plant a tree?  40 years ago!  When is the second best time?  TODAY!  So, I'm gonna give it a shot to blog every day this month (#4 on the list!) and share some of what's been going on with me this month!  There are several projects that I'm just DYING to show you!

So let's get this party started...literally!  The ladies over at 5 Minutes for Mom are throwing the Ultimate Blog Party (2011 edition!) and you're all invited!

I may not be a mom, but I'm really looking forward to visiting some new blogs and I can't wait to hear from you all.  You know I LOVE me some comments!  So head on over there and see what they've got going on!  And if you're visiting here for the first time, welcome!  I'm so happy to meet you.



Apparently I have not done my little post here quite right.

I never introduced myself!  I can be so rude like that.  Please forgive.

My name is Heather and I have been blogging on since 2007.  My blog started as a way to document all of my wonderful adventures completing my first 101 in 1001 list.  For those of you who haven't heard of it, it's basically a bucket list with a deadline.  You make a list of 101 things that you want to do and you try to get them done in 1001 days.  That's about 2 years and 9 months for those of you who don't want to do the math!  That list ended in July of 2009 and now I'm on list #2!

I don't think the bags under my eyes are really that bad.  Hopefully I just needed some sleep!

I'm in my 30s, single, no kids and living the dream!  Well, maybe not, but I do try to get the most out of each day of my life because there have been too many times in my life that I didn't do something and then later thought, "What if?"  So I try to be honest and open with people and I make sure that the people around me know that I love them because everybody needs to know somebody cares.

I write rant about life in general and more specifically motorcycling (been riding my own since 2005!), my family and friends (names are changed to protect the innocent and not-so-innocent!), the cutest dog in the world (Sasha) and things that make me go "hmmm".

I hope you enjoy what you read because most of the time I love writing about it.  If you do, make sure you Follow me and if you leave a comment, I'll be over to your page lickety-split!
