8 years ago

So hard to believe that 8 years ago today I was going to the doctor for my 'why in the world won't this kid vacate the premises' appointment. Yes he was already 9 days late and I was not so happy that he assumed he could take up permanent residence in a space he clearly outgrew a while ago! It was then that I knew this kid would be trouble... pure trouble. That day the doctor decided to serve him with eviction papers because this kid clearly had set up a nice comfy environment for himself with no regard for the body parts of mine that he was torturing. Heck my kidneys still won't speak to me because of the constant punishment they received. Although this landlord wanted the tenant out I refused the forceful eviction and decided to try to coax him out. The only problem with that, I did not realize how long it would take...

David Allen

David Allen I want to wish you the Happiest Birthday ever. It is unreal to me that I could have a child your age but I do. I hope you have many more happy healthy years. I love you with every beat of my heart. ~Mom

Trouble ahead

Zackary got off the bus looking annoyed. Of course I asked what the problem was. He said "Mom I just do not think I am going to talk to my teacher until after lunch tomorrow." Hmm, what in the world could have happened for him to be like that, after all he likes his teacher. So I dig a little deeper until I get to the cause of the problem.

Apparently while teaching the class his teacher asked what makes the arr sound. He responded with "Mom I was just trying to be a little funny and I said 'A pirate' but I guess she didn't think it was so funny."

Anyone else seeing the makings of a photo of my child in his high school yearbook with the words 'class clown' next to it?

Shaking my head.

A special kind of person

Did you ever see a person slide down a set of bleachers while they are sitting down? Not a child person, an adult person. How the heck can an adult person just freaking slide down the bleachers when that person was sitting there doing nothing wrong? There was not a thing wrong with those bleachers. They were flat, not tilted at all, absolutely flat! All I can say is it takes a special kind of person to do that!

And yes, I am that special!

I still do not understand how, but I can tell you, I was in tears laughing at myself.

Happy Birthday Gram

Today would have been my Grandmas birthday. I would tell you how old she would have been but she always said she was 29 and holding so I guess I should not give away her secret. (Don't worry Gram your secret is safe with me).

I miss picking her up and taking her around town where ever she needed/wanted to go. We had a lot of conversations during those car rides. Some were serious and others, well, they were just down right laugh until you had tears coming from your eyes. She had such an incredible sense of humor.

I remember when I was little, my brother and I would fight over who got to sit in her rocking chair. If it started to get physical she would kick us both off and she would plop her butt in it. That chair although older than old has a prominent place in my house. I look at it and I see Grandma doing her puzzles.

I loved that woman but then again anyone that ever met her loved her. I miss you Gram but I know that there is one heck of party going on in Heaven for you today.
