*insert clever title here*

Clint just found out his sister is going to have a baby!! We are very excited about that. She and her husband were home for a visit so we headed back to visit with them yesterday. I have to say--I really do love my sister in laws. I am blessed to have them. My husband has never been real emotional but I honestly don't think his eyes were irritated and red when we left from something getting in his eye or whatever --I think he was truly sad to have to leave.

His mom made mention of selling her place and the price she rattled off was ridiculously cheap. It would be a perfect home for us but we have got to pray--God's will overrides what our heart desires. Even though we are going through a really tough time here and it would be so easy to pack up and head back.

In other news--the boys had a long day--they played hard and then we got home a whole lot later than planned. needless to say, we were late this morning...lol

When we got home last night the boys were starving. Here their grandma had a ton of food but they didn't touch anything but some grapes! My mother in law isn't the greatest of cooks and my boys have made many comments to us about "gma cant cook at all!" They have never ate a whole lot at her house. Yesterday was different though. She did a fairly good job but I couldn't convince the boys of that. They only wanted grapes that they knew gma hadn't tainted. LOL

I buried my phone in a bowl of rice and prayed for a resurrection. It didn't happen. *sigh*

Guess Ill check out ebay or craigslist and see if I can find a cheap replacement.

Im awake way too early for a Saturday morning. Our dog apparently ran off admist the chaos around here last night. All kinds of neighbor kids were playing football in the backyard. But I noticed she was missing when she didn't scratch on my bedroom door this morning to be let out.

She is just a laid back dog and in the evenings you find her normally on one of the boys beds sleeping. There is probably no way she found rest in one of those rooms last night. Chase had a friend over and i think they played every video game imaginable. Kinda sad no one noticed she was missing! Anyway. We are off to search for Daisy. Wish us luck!

R.I.P. good friend.....

Well Im almost certain its official. My bestest good friend of the past nine months has passed on. It was such an untimely death. A five year old and water--need I say more?

And so it begins...

I hated the idea of my oldest in middle school. He has always been a fairly mellow kid....at least in public...lol He has a lot of friends and has been pretty popular in the schools he has went to. It just doesn't seem time for him to be a "preteen"

Last week he got beat up!!! Now I never prepared myself for the feelings I could feel towards a 12 year old boy that hit my son. That protective momma spirit sprung up in me! I wanted to rip the punk from limb to limb!

It didn't take long though and when I found out it was a severly troubled kid that I somewhat know--I hurt for him. His parents basically leave him to fend for himself. He runs the streets at all hours. He has no one to teach him--no one to love him.....

Its not fair he has been dealt a bad hand in life. I pray someone steps into his life and loves him.

Ive had a rough night to say the least. I couldn't sleep so I decided to check up on some blogs I follow.

Earlier I had entered to win a book over at We are THAT family-- Grace Based Parenting--and I WON!

Woot Woot!
