October 28th.


I can't believe it was two years ago today that I woke up to a nearly lifeless, Marco. My worst fear was coming true. The day I had dreaded, the day I had made myself believe would never come...was here. As we were on our way to the emergency room with you I knew that I wouldn't be coming back home with you, but I wished so hard that the vet would have different news for me.

As I sit here thinking back I can feel the lump in my throat forming and the heaviness fall upon my heart. Marco was such a special kitty to me. I thought I loved cats before & was an advocate for felines. His Feline Diabetes diagnoses made my feelings even stronger. Through him and his treatment I learned so much more about feline care, behavior, diet, and about the hearts of people.

I would plan our days to ensure that we were home in time to ensure he didn't miss his shot time, not even by a minute. I would do those nights of setting my alarm in one hour intervals all over again in a heartbeat. Thankfully those were few and far in between.

Marco, you and your Mom took a piece of my heart that will never grow back. I hope that y'all are across the rainbow bridge as healthy as ever.

...and then I lost my mind.


If you follow me on Instagram you saw me post the following photo.

I think I've officially lost my mind. I signed up for the Mud Challenger...

A Navy Seal & Black Ops designed obstacle course... and you don't know what obstacles there will be until you get there. The keyword here is obstacle course. This isn't a race. The challenge is 4-6 miles and the goal is to complete the challenge with your team.

I am no where near the fitness level of a Navy Seal, but I know I can do this and I am up for the challenge.

This event was actually created by a guy I know! We aren't besties or anything but we were both Ambassadors for the University of Houston and he was a super stand up guy.

Anywho - I've got some training to do, some serious training!
