That's Where the Lizard Lives!

First order of business- THANK YOU to all who commented and to all who read the last two (one, two) frantic posts. I felt weak and once again, you guys helped me to grow a pair.

Jen Jen- It’s nice to meet you and I appreciate your comment. It was short and to the point and it helped more than you know.

Lita- I need to stop toeing the line on this. What I said in the post was honest. As jaded and manipulative as people can be, it’s hard to argue with the proverbial saying, “Honesty is the best policy”. I need to shit or get off the pot and believe in who I am without giving up on humanity. I can’t keep running from this. “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything”. Thank you!!!

Almost.Skinny (although I prefer to call you Skinny Vegan)- I think I have a virtual crush on you. In all seriousness, I appreciate your kindness and attention more than you know. You’re in my thoughts quite a bit and I can’t wait to share the sleep resources. I have not forgotten, just been busy. I’m feeling great inspiration and strength from this and I’m loving this creative energy I feel.

Moonlight Mistress- What can I say? I feel like we go way back and I think we’re kindred spirits. Once again, your words of advice are incredibly useful. Just the relief of having feedback has been enormously helpful. You’re awesome!!!

Cammie- I never replied to your comment about my rambling post. Thanks for the compliment and it’s nice to meet you!!!

Mich and Glitch- You two chicks are quite the writers and I’ve enjoyed reading some of your past posts. My ADHD likes to distract me while I’m reading, but you guys make my efforts to concentrate worth the energy. Did that come out right? What I’m trying to say is that your blogs are like a carnival for my ADHD brain- it can’t wait to ride all the rides and just soak it all in.

Ephimera- I look forward to more conversations about all things lucid dreaming. I’m very happy to know you.

Oh, as for the title of the post, here’s a cute story to lighten the mood:

I have a couple of large canine companions. They…are…AWESOME!

****One day I’ll share the story of how my dogs saved my life (you’ll enjoy this one, Skinny Vegan, as this story will reveal one of my coping tools for sleep paralysis and the other freaky dream stuff). ****

So, back to the story of Canine # 1. He has discovered the joys of hunting lizards in the backyard. He’s been observing the whole lizard thing for a while and today I witness my boy having an epiphany- the lizards hang out around the lawn mower.

He was trotting along the pool, headed for the door and he stopped at the mower. He turned his head sideways, his eyes lite up and then his head dropped as he placed his nose closer to the ground. His forehead crinkled and I swear he cracked a smile. He looked at me as if to say, “This is where the lizard lives!” and he was thrilled when a lizard quickly emerged as if to say, ”Olly olly oxen free? I hate that sometimes his nose tags are fatal to the lizard but the furry bastard doesn’t mean any harm. It’s the circle of life, right? I don’t care. These dogs bring much joy and love into my life.

That’s it. Just wanted to share a little fact about me that you didn’t know- I have rescued dogs.

Cheers Everyone!!!


  1. aww you make me blush! I'm glad I could help a little :)
    I love the lizard story! Aren't dogs amazing? It makes me so cranky when people talk about them like they don't have personalities or give them the credit they deserve (granted some are smarter than others, but still!)

    Don't stress about getting the dream info together- I'm working crazy hours at the moment so I won't have time to read it anyway! & I'm still waiting on the book so I'm on my way. I've actually been sleeping slightly better recently, trying not to fight the process & increasing the exercise (Boxing is helping?)...

    Any chance you'd post pics of your dogs? I'd love to see- I hope thats not weird, I'm just hanging out till we're not in an apartment anymore and we can get pets!

    Let us know how the friend stuff goes! All the best xxx

  2. You're welcome, Amelia :) I hope everything works out!! <3

  3. I agree with you almost.skinny, I would love to see pictures of Amelias dogs!! :) I love the pooches!!

    I'm glad that I helped you, I hope that you got things sorted with this girl, if he genuinely wants to be your friend, she'll be willing to wait!

    Good luck girl!!
    Jen Jen

  4. HOW CUTE!!

    I have two rescued kitties myself and I love them like they were my own children (of which I have none! LOL)
