I'm telling you, someone is messing with father time. I could have sworn it was just monday, then again it could be that I'm always running out of hours in the day.
I got up this morning and sat down to do my blog, well that didn't last long because the time it took me to think of what to type, the kids were up and I had to get them dressed and ready for school, you know, the usual morning routine thing.
I got back home just as my friend Veronica had hung up, trying to call me. Let me get something clear, I'm NOT a phone person. I'm the type who actually squeals in delight when I can't find a phone number. Now before you go say something mean, just know that it's not like that with everyone. Family and close friends are an entirely different story all together.
Anyway, I called Veronica back and we talked for 103 minutes, yes people, this phoneaphobic talked for 103 minutes without even realizing it. I love talking to Veronica, we are able to talk about anything and everything, I miss having her just across the street....now she's all the way in DC and I'm still in potato land....but hey, if anything it will get me more comfortable with phones LOL
Thank you all for the great comments about my struggles with Jasmine. I'm glad I'm not the only one going through it....it's just that at times you get that feeling of "boy I really must stink as a mother", like you're the only one in the universe struggling with certain things. As if!!!
Couple things going on in blogdom today. Heather, Veronica's friend and someone I had met a couple times, really sweet girl, had just moved to Alaska in July, turns out she started a blog too, so if you get a chance go on over to "My Little Kangaroonies" and say hi. While you're at it, go say hi to Veronica too, they just moved to DC from our base and it's been a big change for everyone.
Yesterday while blogging, well, while out on my blog drive, I came across a blog belonging to Susan Godfrey and her family. After spending one hour visiting, and wiping the tears from my eyes, I was shocked and in awe of the strength this lady has.
Susan is pregnant, and in June their baby was diagnosed with Potter's Syndrome, which means the baby is born with no kidneys and therefore only able to survive for a few hours after birth. They have decided to carry the baby to term.
There is a prayer chain being set up here, to pray for Susan and her family. If you have a moment, please say a prayer for them, you can read more about it at her blog.
I wish I had more time to sit and chat, but my dogs are going bananas. B A N A N A S!!!!
This is what happens when one of them is in Heat, the whole house is turned upside down, I'm not sure, but I'm still convinced that two female dogs should NOT be caught in compromising positions doing things that are not normal for TWO FEMALE DOGS. That's all I'm saying!!!
I have to tell you real quick that the day my MIL arrived, she was sitting on the couch, and the next thing I know I have two dogs trying to get it ON, right up against her. I think my heart stopped and I remember doing some sort of a matrix move, you know, the slow motion jump in the air towards the dogs, trying to intervene. It was very weird, but extremely funny now that I think about it LOL
Anyway, I have dogs up to no good, a son trying to build a fort in the living room and my dryer just beeped letting me know that NOW I HAVE TO PUT THE LAUNDRY AWAY.....great!!!
Hope you're all having a wonderful friday :)
