Zoey must've had a bad dream around 1:00 AM. She wrapped her paws around me, burrowed her face into my neck and her back legs were "kicking" as she kept trying to get closer to me. I covered my face because I would probably scare you, lol, but I had to share this!! #bostonterrier #bostonterrierlover #bostonterriersofinstagram #servicedog #doggiedreams #comfort #love
I think we're beyond 18" and it's not even 4:30 on Saturday. We still have tonight and tomorrow to get through. It's crazy!!! (And yes we do have a snowblower, you just can't see it in this pic) #snow #winter #blizzard
I had a request on the video about service dogs from @gajitldy (If I have the wrong IG name, please correct me!!!) to do a "Q & A" on Zoey/her working. So, please keep your questions on this page or in the comment section of the service dog video so that they're all in one place. Please try to have your questions posted by Sunday, the 24 and I will try to answer them that day. Thank you for the interest!!! #servicedogs #disabilityawareness #chronicillness
Tagged by @yayitanoelia @stitchymom @tattooed_stitcher and @frenchieeee_95 so I better get moving on this!!! 1. I grew up in Philadelphia 2. I had to take a bus and the subway to get to High School. Now I live in the suburbs and there's no bus or subway nearby. You have to drive everywhere. 3. I like action movies, no horror movies and I'm not big on "chick flicks" either. 4. I went to an all girl HS, all girl Catholic college for my Bachelors degree and an all girl Catholic college for my Masters degree. The funny part of that is that I'm Jewish. 5. I met my husband in BJ's Wholesale Club (similar to Sam's or Costco) 6. I used to be an avid knitter but can't knit much anymore due to arthritis and carpal tunnel. 7. To make up for not being able to knit, I learned how to cross stitch. 8. I played classical violin from 2nd grade to senior year of HS. I was in my school orchestras, district orchestras and All City Orchestra. I was either Concert Mistress or 2nd seat. 9. I quit the violin and got licensed to be a Nail Technician. I worked in a salon while in college. 10. Before becoming disabled, I started playing violin again but took Celtic Fiddle lessons. My teacher was Rose from the Celtic Band Burning Bridget Cleary. 11. I have my second degree Black belt in kenpo karate. 12. I love watching TV, especially old shows like Bewitched, Mary Tyler Moore, Taxi, etc. 13. My favorite colors are pink and purple but 90% of my clothes are black. 14. I love animals and will take of any 2 or 4 legged creature. 15. I'm terrified of spiders. 16. I believe in the supernatural. 17. Although not observant, we belong to an Orthodox Synagogue. 18. My husband is my best friend, but since becoming disabled, I have developed more respect for him than I would've thought was possible. He takes care of the house, food shopping, the kids and does everything for me. 19. Zoey, my service dog, is more than a dog to me. I talk to her, she snuggles with me and mothers me. She's always with me. 20. I've been to Israel, but I've never been to Europe.
Bandit and Zoey are no fools!! They're laying by me staying comfy and warm!! #bostonterrier #bostonterrierlover #bostonterriersofinstagram #petsofinstagram #servicedog #babyitscoldoutside #winter #snow

Coming on Thursday!!! January 7, 2016 is the one year anniversary of the day I became disabled. I thought it would be the perfect day to post my first video on YouTube. Please take some time to watch it and give me your feedback. I do want honest feedback, but remember that one can give advice in a kind way without hurting the person receiving it!! 💜 #chronicillness #spoonie #positvethinking #happiness

I was tagged by the lovely @chronically_confused for this! My name is Sharon and let's just leave it at I'm over 30! Lol!! I'm married to Bryan @asahsci who is not just the love of my life but also my best friend. He teaches 8th grade science and is a third degree black belt in kempo karate. We have two sons, Matt @matthoelzle who will be 21 at the end of this month and Jarett who is 16. I have a great relationship with both of my parents. My dad is a retired cop and my mom is a retired school secretary. I played the violin from second grade through HS and was in the All City and District orchestras as well as my school orchestra. I went to college right from HS but always loved doing my nails, makeup and hair and even did my friends' nails and makeup for the prom. So, the summer between Freshman and Sophomore year, I went to Beauty School and became licensed to do nails. I worked doing nails while in college and have my Bachelors in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I started out teaching kindergarten and while working I went to graduate school and earned my Masters in Elementary Guidance Counseling. I worked as a Guidance Counselor for six years and loved it but unfortunately the job became more about paperwork and less about the kids. So, I went back to teaching and was assigned to an amazing school where I spent the last 13 years teaching 3rd grade, then moved up with my class to fourth grade and then after I believe 8 years (and earning my second degree black belt in karate also), I needed a change and moved to sixth grade where I taught three sections of Language Arts. I am retiring due to my illnesses. However, I have chosen to be positive and am going to have a YouTube channel (coming soon, more details to follow) and enjoy working/playing with my service dog Zoey and I've also learned how to cross stitch which I am seriously behind on!! There's more, but this should be enough to give you an idea of who I am. Thank you so much for following me and if you have any questions, feel free to ask here or DM me. xxxx
