Finally Home

After 17 hours (not evem including wait times at gates, baggage,etc)of traveling, I'm finally home!
Every time I go through long trips like that, I am reminded of how much I love my little Pumpkin! I could easily take a 10 hour straight flight from San Francisco to Manila, but just the thought of putting her in cargo or leaving her behind is just not acceptable! So, Northwest Airlines it is! She gets to sit by my feet and sometimes, I sneak her out of her carrier to stretch and make some fellow dog lovers smile on the plane with her ever cheery sunshine personality. 

I was so knocked out...I was asleep even before we took off, I woke up from the sound of the plane lifting off. Pumpkin was knocked out as well...maybe all the packing this past week wore her out too, just like me.

I know I've spent the past weeks being emotional about leaving the crazy beautiful city of San Francisco, our home of 2 years but last night when my parents picked us up from the airport I realized how nice it is to be home again. 

Now, I just have to find out how to get Pumpkin back used to the sound of all the birds chirping and singing in the morning or the horny frogs out in the golf course behind us?!? She goes ballistic when she hears these sounds and barks NON-STOP. It's so funny, she's really become a city dog. It used to be the sound of the sirens and drunks singing in the streets that made her nuts. Now, she doesn't mind those sounds at all....hope she adjusts soon. I need, want and love my sleep!

If you're going to be passionate about something, be passionate about learning.
If you're going to fight, fight for those in need.
If you're going to question something, question authority.
If you're going to lose something, lose your inhibitions.
If you're going to gain something, gain respect and confidence.
And if you're going to hate something,
hate the false idea that you are not capable of your dreams.

I feel so happy, blessed, nervous and excited all at the same time!
New things ahead, even my fortune cookie of the day agrees:)

 During another epic day printing in my 2nd home aka the Porter Lab, Walt (real talented photographer...doing great things with musicians now) shared this video with me. I love Alice in Wonderland! Alice definitely knows how to Zzz...dream!

Fight Night

Watched the fight at Sudachi with Note, Misael and Mindo. It was such an awesome fight! I flew out of my chair with every knockdown and knockout. Manny is truly amazing. Note instantly became a Manny fan last night:) He is such a smart, fast and powerful in the WORLD! Go Manny! Go Philippines!!! Woohoo!!!! 

...haven't heard any rhymes from Mayweather Sr. since the fight. Manny was right, "Less talk, less trouble"...Pay attention to the Pacman next time boys!
