His names Pinky.
Yeah, I know boys aren't supposed to be named feminine colors but that's what my daughter named him and we love him all the same ;-)
She got him as a gift from my Mum I think about 3 years ago and he's still frolicking around his fishbowl like there's no tomorrow. I swear he has mood swings though, and this was taken today when he was in a good mood.
Wanna know why he was in a good mood? Well, I'll tell ya. Because I cleaned his fishbowl and made it all nice a sparkly, then I decided he needed to move. Literally...move, from her messy dresser to the kitchen bar. And I really think he loves it...all sunshiny and bright with people to talk to all day. I told her he could go back up to her room when her dresser was cleaned, but it still isn't...so he spent the weekend with me. And we chatted a bit, got to know each other better and he smiled at me and even posed for pictures. He wants to be famous ya know? I learned that during a heart to heart - he wants to travel, like Nemo's dad too :)
So, back to his mood swings. I tell ya, he doesn't like a dirty home...he gets all dark colored and frowns. It's true, when I clean his bowl...he brightens up and shines. See how shimmery his blue tail is?
Honestly, has anyone ever noticed this with a fish...a pet? That they love to chat, get your attention. He seems like he's trying to get my attention when I walk by. He'll swim over and come to the top...probably trying to give me googly eyes so I'll slip him a morsel or two. But it seems to work...I do. I can't reisist his cute little face, tee hee.
See, these are things I've never noticed about ol' Pinky...since he's always lived on my daughters dresser. Sometimes I'll go in, feed him, clean his bowl (although he does try to run from me when I try to scoop him up) but that is to be understood I guess. I'd run too if someone was trying to take me away from my water, err...air supply for even just a second. That's got to be frightening for the little guy.
But, to see how happy he's been this weekend, just with a small change in scenery. It's made me think, change can be good right? Like a fresh start with so many opportunities ahead, so many open doors...awaiting little changes...possibilities, that may have never been made possible otherwise.
Like this new blog! A little frightening to completely change over from StampinMom, but it's nice. I've grown so much since August when I wrote my first post...I've come a long way and change just felt right. So, I won't ramble on anymore...I just wanted you to meet my new buddy and give you a little boost if something in your life needs to change. I say...Go for it!
