Last night, I spent nearly an hour looking through old photos and reminiscing about my life. I love being able to bring myself back to those moments in time. But, until last night, I didn’t realize just how much some things never change.
A year ago, Mal and I lived in South Boston with Murphy. Back then, Murph was just a small puppy (probably half of his weight now). He grew into a pug monster, but looking through old photos, I see that some things never change for this furball.
Murphy still takes long walks around the neighborhood.
And supervises any car cleaning that may happen.
He still makes friends at the dog park.
And learns new doggie tricks.
It’s fun to see how some things stayed the same for Murphy in the past year. Plus, he still loves peanut butter and Big Bone, and does “elephant butt” when he gets excited. And, of course, he has his same goofy, yet lovable pug personality.
Similarly, I feel like certain things in my life (and personal characteristics) will probably never change, like my:
- Love for pugs
- Obsessive list-making (clearly)
- Dislike for water chestnuts and Red Bull
- Participation in Body Pump
- Fixation with odd numbers
- Weakness for cream cheese (ok, any) frosting
- Tendency to laugh at just about any fart joke
- Ability to fall asleep in a moving car within 10 minutes
- Fear of spiders
Obviously, life never stays the same, but it’s interesting to think about the ways that it does not change. Personally, I love change and actively seek it out. It keeps life interesting!
This morning, I combined breakfast with dessert to make Apple Crisp Oatmeal. Mmm! 😀
In the mix: leftover apple crisp, oats, soy milk, walnuts, and raisins. My goodness, this breakfast was delicious!!
