I loathe the dog

I'm sorry. I know the title sounds cruel. But the dog is driving me NUTS!!! He is getting old and crazy. And he barks. ALL THE TIME. I let him out, he barks to come in. I put him up, he barks to get out. I give him food, he barks. I give him water, he barks. ALL night ALL the time. I am losing it!!! Hours and hours of barking. I have NO idea what to do with the insane dog.

2nd Day

Ok, so it's my second day and I have to admit, IT'S FABULOUS!! That is all I'm going to say. Not that I'm superstitious or anything. BUT, I really like it so far. and I don't want to jinx it. The people are GREAT AND for the first time in a LONG time, I feel like I'm actually bringing something to the table. It's nice for a change. It's not and expectation, it's a request for help. I like it. And it's totally up to me. I can give them as much as I want. I actually want to give it because it's not expected!! Did I already say that??

Anyway, once again, props to the main man upstairs. Without him, none of this would be possible. I am just thrilled. I LOVE YOU MAN!!

Hopefully, the next post will be some random statement from Kennedy. I am really needing a fix from her! LOL!!

Surprise Visit and New Beginnings

My big brother came in town just for the weekend!! I am so excited! Tomorrow is his birthday so I'm taking him shopping. He is a great shopping buddy!!

Well, today was my last day of work and I start my new job on Monday. I am so thankful for this.

Thank you God for this opportunity. Thank you for providing for my family, thank you for more time with my family and thank you for allowing me to spend time focused on you. You are truly amazing.

I am so pumped!! I might actually get a life again. No more stressful weekends, no more late nights, no more ham!!! I may actually protest and never eat pork again. LOL!!

I did leave behind so wonderful people and that was tough. They taught me so much. How to be patient and understanding, to not sweat the small stuff, and how to laugh at myself. I'll truly miss you guys.

Well, off to bed I go. Kennedy and I are walking tomorrow for Cystic Fibrosis and I need my beauty sleep!!

10 Years, Prairie Chickens and Cooter Stew?

Hi all! I promised Missy I would actually keep this thing up so I'm really trying. I don't have any crazy stories, so I'll just update you on my life since the last blog.

Jeff and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary last week. 10 YEARS!!! I am so proud of us. We have come so far and learned so much along the way. He is truly my very best friend. I don't know what I would do without him. Have I mentioned the present he got me? Here, let me ease into it. D...Di...Dia.....Diam....Diamo.........Diamon.........Diamond Necklace!!! I about fell over. It is so pretty and dainty. Not like anything I have. He is such a good boy.

My BFF came to visit me this weekend. We had a blast!!!! She brought her kiddos and I finally got meet her new son. (She adopted from Rwanda last year). I love them so much!! Did I mention we had a blast?? We always adopt some random new catch phrase and use it to death. It's one of those "only we know what it means" things. The new 2008 catch phrase is.......Prairie Chicken!! Totally random and I don't really even know how it stuck. But I think the conversation topics went something like this, Global Warming, Wind Power, Oklahoma, PETA, I am not a nugget, Turbine, Prairie chicken. It still cracks me up.

And finally, Cooter stew. If you can tell me what Cooter stew is WITHOUT looking it up on the Internet, I will give you a dollar the next time we bump into each other. I just heard about it on my big redneck wedding (I'm from Arkansas, remember? What if i see one of my cousins on there) and I'm half tempted to try it.

Ok, so I'm actually going to try and post some pics to here I go!

Me, Kennedy and Bizi at the park

Me and Missy. I recommend you do not take pictures and drive at the same time.
