Never Prepared

One is never prepared for death. I still have a hard time knowing my mom is gone and it was hard on my husband also.
Yesterday, we learned that his mom has been taken in to hospice. He headed down right away after work. I spoke with him last night and he said that her actions were just like my mom during her final days.
I hurt so bad for him and knowing the pain that he is going through. Sometime today I will be heading down to be with him. Please keep his family and mom in your prayers.

A Hard Decision

We have had to make a hard decision this weekend. Now we love our animals very much but we love our children even more. We have been having some issues with our older dog. He has been very aggressive to our other dog. My daughter was trying to get the older dog to leave the other dog alone and he bite her. That is a no no in my house. I love him beyond belief. But I can not have a dog that bites here. Now that he has bite some one I will just worry that he may try to do it to other people. So tomorrow we will be taking him to the animal shelter. We have explained to the kids that they will hopefully find him a new home and we will all miss him. His aggression has been getting worse and we worry that his behavior will make the other dog aggressive. The kids seem to understand that this is what is the best choice for us to do. It is very hard on me. I love the dog.

2nd Ammendment

I received this photo in a email I received yesterday and all I could think YES.

I along with my husband are responsible gun owners. Our children know they are weapons not TOYS. We practice gun safety and both our children know how to shot and handle a gun. By no means do I let them run around with them. They know where and when to shot.

This is a RIGHT I am not willing to give up. I am a avid hunter and believe in the conceal and carry. Both my husband and I plan on getting our permits.

I will not apologize if I offended anyone. Because I have such strong feelings about this.

Up and Down Battle

The past two weeks have been an up and down battle with my youngest not feeling well. It all started last Thursday. I received a call from school telling me he was running a fever. Knowing it was a holiday weekend I took him in to be seen. They told me it was just a bug. He ran his fever through the holiday. He had a good week. Until last night. He fell asleep on the couch. Then woke up a threw up all over his blanket. I have a really hard time with vomit. I was able to work through it by begging my hubby to take care of it. So, far today he seem to be doing better. He is going to help his dad clean the garage. Yeah!!!! Another battle over with. Since I have been planning with my girl friend that we have a garage sale this spring.
We have been going through all our stuff getting rid of what we do not need or have not used. Oh my there is a lot of stuff. I have even been listing somethings on Amazon.

How things Change

Oh, how things change. My little man is growing up so fast in front of my eyes. He has always been my little Michael. Not Mike or Mikey. Michael. I have always viewed my dad as Mike and my son as Michael. But, I guess I can not stop the evolution. He has decided to start calling him self MIKE. He has been signing his papers for school that way and everything. To me thou he will always be Michael. Not MIKE. My baby is growing up.
And I have decided to go for the short hair look. No pictures yet but I should have some soon. People ask "WHY?"
I respond "why, does it matter? It will grow back if I do not like it."
