Kiko: L love the name, very creative!
On your ticker staying where it needs to stay today. Maintaining is just plain better than gaining!
Cottage: I despise not being able to sleep. Seems like that happens to me more once and a while than it used to be. I turned 40 this past December, and I think that hormones are beginning to make a move on me. LOL
I am so overjoyed to see that you are grandparents who are spending quality time with thier grandkids. My parents are both gone, and my dh's parents are 1. divorced and remarried, and 2. live in different states than ours. So I applaud you! You are a blessing!!!!
Ruth: Dog's are SO awesome, aren't they? I have a beagle girl named Annie - and she is the sweetest thing. Let me put a link here for you to go look at. Watch out, you WILL shed a tear though. My 12 y/o son wants her book. You'll see why. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLXHvBFG-CI
: Wake up girlie! Have some java with a shot of espresso. That usually works for me. Then again, I'd have to go to Starbucks for THAT. It's my treat when I go. Nothing like a double shot Latte.
Hey, I am printing out the current catalog for PMTI school in Washington DC...I think I need to make some plans to begin my committment to my career. I'm going to fill out the forms and see how far I can get. I'll have to talk to DH about a time frame, but I am thinking of maybe January 2007. It's not that far away and I'd have to get a student loan. I'll let you know. Send some positive thoughts for me.
Me: Had a really sad day yesterday. I was blue all day. Couldn't shake the squeeze around my heart. My kids had went to a friends the night before and told them that his dad abuses him physically. There was also an incident with thier dog killing a rabbit (it may have been someones pet in the neighborhood) Now, this is a country dog, he's outside all the time. He lives on a horse farm. Anyway, the dad was po'ed at this dog and grabbed it by the muzzle until is was screaming. My 15 y/o son told him to stop hurting the dog - and his reply was, I am not hurting him - I'm teaching him a lesson. WTF? So, my heart was so heavy that I was borderline tears all day yesterday. DH and I need to talk to the kid and get the story before we do something, and that is a huge headtrip to be involved in. So, we have to proceed with caution, but will definitely not leave the boy in danger.
I am better today though. I talked it through with DH and prayed a lot. It's a new day.
On the brighter side...the guys are here beginning to dog for our patio (which is the precursor to getting the hot tub) it makes it more real.
Everyone stay Blessed!!!
