Insanity

thy name is:
Geyer's Baby Koda Bear



Sorry...she's a girl. We call her Koda and she's a German Shepherd. She is as sweet as they come! Duke loves, loves, loves her. Except when she tries to take his chew toy. Then he quickly puts her in her place.

I do think I'm insane. But so far, very worth it.

    Koda is absolutely beautiful, but she still manages to be cute and friendly-looking at the same time---no mean feat for a German shepherd. If I had seen her, I would have entered the insanity myself!

    I was so happy to see your note on my guestbook today. What a wonderful surprise that was. I can't tell you how many times I've planned to try calling you late at night my time (kids-heading-to-bed your time) and then, as evening wore on, it was just not the night for it after all, or I collapsed, or I forgot as I went to move another load from washer to dryer. : ) But I'd definitely love to talk soon and find out how Kenny, Zach, and Kate are doing and how YOU are doing. I can't believe we are approaching another anniversary. Is it really possible? Wow. You are busy and always running, I know, but maybe what I should do is write and make a "phone call appointment" for a night that will work for you. What do you think?

    Thanks for the big smile you brought me today and for that reminder of just how special "the other corner" will always be to me.

  6. Oh, She is soooo cute. We had a German Shepherd once. She just showed up at our house. We named her Moouch. She was the most loyal dog we ever had.
    She is so pretty.

August Blog Challenge - Day 9

List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.

Okay, on this blog you've read a lot about my mom and dad.  And Dave, Doug and Kyle.  And Kenny, Zach, Kaitlyn and Kailee.  These people are my family.  Everything I do, I do for them.  It would be impossible for me to adequately describe their influence on me.  And I've talked about them a lot.  So I'm just going to say a word about each of them and what they've taught me - and then I'll go into 10 people outside that circle.

Mom taught me to think of others.  Dad taught me to work hard.  Dave taught me to love unconditionally and out loud.  Doug taught me to never give up and to enjoy each moment.  Kyle taught me to be a mother.  Kenny taught me to embrace the life you have and to laugh.  Zach taught me to think things through and go 100%. Kaitlyn taught me about honesty and that there is always sunshine, even when you can't see it.  Kailee taught me new aspects of faith and faithfulness.

Tattoo

So.
I got a tattoo.  Christine actually wrote on my facebook post, "You??"
Yeah.  Me.

I've been thinking about it for six years.
I finally decided that if after six years, I still wanted it, maybe it was time.

The writing is Dave and Doug's.
Taken from notes they wrote me.
They always signed their notes the same way.

I thought I was doing it in memory of them.
To mark the way they are always on my heart.
To have a visible reminder.
A permanent keepsake,
always with me.

And while it is that.
It is also more.

I didn't realize it,
until afterwards.

It's a marker.
A closing of a chapter.
Closure, if you will.

I don't know how to explain it.
The minute it was finished,
I knew.
I knew something inside me was different.

Dave,
and to a lesser extent,
Doug,
have been part of my every thought
every day
for over 10 years.

Daryl saw the Dali Lama this summer.
One thing he learned:
Interrogate your truth.

I've been thinking about that a lot.

Interrogate implies a…
