Sick Puppies




Sorry for the delay in posting.
Good to hear from you, Sara! You're the one that got us started on this puppy road! Hugs to you and the girls.

Went to Lewiston this week for Zach's baseball tournament. They played great, two great games, but couldn't pull off a win. The third game they got blown out. Then the fourth game they played the Bruins, an upper level legion team from Walla Walla...and they beat them! Hooray!

We took the puppy, but she had to spend the night at the vets before we could, because she got into the cat food and made herself soooo sick. Thursday, I took Zach & Sam back to WW for driver's ed, and picked up Kenny & Luke. Took the puppy to the vet, and went back to Lewiston. Mindy took Amy & Kate to Cinderella and for pedicures. Then Friday, Alazar took Zach and Sam to driver's ed and back. Then Mindy brought the girls and the puppy. Whew! All together, all happy right? Wrong. I got sick Saturday night. Threw up 30 times in about 10 hours. Mindy and Kenny took me to the ER. Gallstones. Ick. Plus a high white count. So, back home now, meeting with the surgeon next week.

Can nothing ever go simply for us? Guess not.

But until I started getting sick, it was a great time! Mom and Dad are here helping out. Denise & Darren & Jake came and got the kids.

PS. In the middle of all this somewhere, I bought the kids a car...a Toyota 4Runner. It's cute. Old, but cute and runs well. Pic coming soon. First thing the boys did was put a WW Football sticker on it!

Hugs to all...

  1. Hugs to us? It seems more like it should be "Hugs to You." Doesn't sound like you have a fun week ahead at all, Yikes! If there is anything at all I can do for you, transport kids, make a meal and deliver it, whatever it is I am there. Take care and know I will be saying a prayer for you. Hey, one good thing is you won't have any choice but to rest!

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…
