My new friend Ford

On my way home from work today I saw a dog running along side the fastlane of the freeway. I immediatly pulled over and stopped the car. By instinct I got out and called the dog towards me, he came willingly and jumped in the backseat. I drove to the nearest exit to examine him. No broken bones, no scars, blood. He had tags and looked like he was well taken care of. I called the number provided and left a message. His name is Ford, he is an older Pitbull Terrier. Very sweet and thankful for being found. I took him home with me and waited for his owner to call me back. Long story short, I got a call from his owner saying he was on business in New Mexico and would have his girlfriend give me a call. Both were very thankful that I took him in, since most of the people on the freeway passed him up. I could not continue to drive knowing that dog could get hit and die. I am thankful I found him. I feel like Heavenly Father trusts me to do the right thing and thats why I experience the things I do. I was not afraid of Ford, I felt he was waiting for the right person to rescue him off that noisey freeway. He had escaped from the place he was staying at. He is a good dog and am thankful I got to know him. I am thankful he has loving and concerned owners and would do anything to get him back. Random acts of kindness are rewarding in itself.

Happy Birthday

This last week Robert and I celebrated our 25th birthdays. It was a lot of fun going to Disneyland since we have premium annual passes, we can go whenever we want(thanks to Dad and Shelly). We spent the day at the beach on my birthday and both got burned on our shoulders. We also had a get together with our amazing friends at CPK. It was awesome since I got to see a few people I love that I haven't seen in a long time.

We got some pretty sweet gifts as well.

Thank you to everyone!

We went to DisneyLand yesterday. I brought my back brace and we rented a wheel chair. If you don't know already, I compacted my vertebrae back in 04 so it's hard for me to stand and walk for long periods of time. The good news out of this is less wait time for the rides. Anyways we had a splendid time enjoying the happiest place on earth. We rode most of the rides twice since we didnt have to waste anytime in lines. Robert ate a huge turkey leg, we tried pulling the sword from the stone, ran away from a boulder, kissed a toad, and also had some fun at California Adventure riding the Hollywood Tower of Terror (my fave ride).

Changed my mind

Well if you all haven't heard, I had decided to decline the job offer with Banfield Pet Hospital and went forward to take the offer with Ventura County Credit Union. They pay more and it's part time. I went with VCCU for the following reasons: more focus on school, and my experience is already in this area. I have more reasons but I don't think others would fully understand what I'm talking about. So yes I am back into banking even though I tried to get out. But anyways i have a job and thats what matters for the moment.
