okay, i think that i need to clarify. i probably came on too stong. my poor sister called me yesterday asking me if i don't like her dog. whoops. i do. he is the cutest little thing that i have ever seen. plus, he doesn't have that yucky dog smell. sorry again--but you know that smell. well, her dog goes to the groomer every 6 weeks--the same day that my sister gets her hair done. i apologize. i love my cruisey! my children love him more--especially my youngest who french kisses him. yuck! my main complaint with animals is that they die. i know that that sounds funny, but i have enough anxiety about losing family members that i don't like the added stress. okay, i feel better getting that off my chest!
bring on the fish!!!!!!!!!

we are having a guest stay with us for christmas!

yesterday my son's kindergarten teacher approached me and asked if we would keep the class goldfish over christmas break. i smiled and agreed. i then said, "you picked us because you knew that if it died we would replace the silly thing and no one would no the difference." for those of you who know me well--you know that i am anything but an animal fan. i was not pleased this summer when my son came home from camp at thanksgiving point with a goldfish. i knew that it would die--sure enough--3 days later the blessed spidey was gone. only to be replaced with hulky the beta fish who has a life expectancy of 5 years! okay--is that commitment or what? so, how many fish goldfish do you think that we will go through before school starts back up on jan. 2nd?

out of the mouth of babes!

a couple days ago my dad had an angeogram (sp.). i was explaining to the boys that papa would be in the hospital for a test. i explained that he might have some clogging in his heart. i told them that it was similar to when our drain was backed up and i had to (this is going to get gross--beware!) dig some gunk out of it. our oldest said, "yeah, and it looked like b.m.!" to that our youngest responded, "papa, pee-pee in heart! ha ha ha!" he thought that it was the funniest thing that he had ever heard--or said for that matter!
well, i am proud to report, there was no gunk and all is well!" yay!
