Glen got home and whined, "We ate at Logan's tonight, and I ordered my steak medium and itcame out rare."
I made one of those little "wipe your eyes and go waa-waa noises" and rolled over and went to sleep, but not before telling him, "your dinner for the next 2 weeks is on the stove, you might need to heat it up."
Saturday morning was full of tears, fighting, and PUNCHING!
The only thing that I could think of to tell Hallie why it was highly unacceptable to PUNCH your sister in the back, ESPECIALLY while her cool friends are over and she has done absolutely nothing to you to deserve the PUNCH in the back.......was.......
"because you'll go to jail!" There were no more questions after that.
The Wildcats ended their first 10U season yesterday! They did great for their first time in kid pitch. We are so proud of the girls and we were so glad to see our "old Wildcats" back and playing like real champs in yesterday's tournament! They may not have won 1st place this season, but they sure played their little hearts out!!Congratulations Wildcats on another great season!!
I'm going to officially RENAME the Swine Flu!! Pigs are too cute and sweet to have this dreadful thing named after them!!
I was feeling crummy on Monday anyways from the whole Lucy fiasco, but a sad crummy.........but by after work Monday night I started feeling a little sick crummy?? hmmmm???
By Tuesday afternoon, I was real sick crummy..like 102 fever crummy....then by Wednesday..I was WOW CRUMMY...like lungs gunked up, head about to explode, fever of 103, can't lift your head up cause everything hurts (even my teeth hurt!), certainly can't open your eyes to get on Facebook (now that's crum-cum-crummy for me!!) So I crawled on into the Dr. and she confirmed it as the cute little "Swine Flu". I again battled this woman for some TamiFlu (if she ever comes down with this mess, I really want to be her nurse so that I can tell her....like she has told me twice now..."I don't really think you need it, it doesn't do much good, it'll only make you feel better like by one day!") FYI.... "Ms. Dr." I've only had one dose and I feel good enough to make a blog about you...(I may be a little cranky though, but at least I can open my eyes today!)
So needless to say, I vote this horrible flu gets a new name like the "Buzzard Flu" or like the "Tarantula Flu" something, wicked and not cute.....cause that's what this junk is!!!
After a long day of phone calls, sign making, picture posting, shelter visits, people stopping by to report Lucy sightings from Saturday, and even one sweet neighbor throwing me into her suburban as we shot down the road makeup-less and brazierre-less to scope out what she thought was a Lucy sighting........
Lucy is not coming home.
With help from the Hurst Animal Shelter it was discovered today that Lucy was actually NOT a "rescued" dog as we were led by 2 women to believe, but a "STOLEN" dog. Lucy had been reported stolen over 3 years ago by the family that she was reunited with on Saturday. We were led to believe by these women who represented themselves to be with "Paws of Paradise" that Lucy had been microchipped by their organization, when in reality the original family had microchipped her. That is how the connection was made on Saturday.
We are happy that they have been reunited, sad she is not here on her bed with us, and so mad that people can be so cruel.
Alot of mixed up feelings, and not really sure what I should do......write to the family, complain to "Paws of Paradise", cry a little more, be angry a little longer, but one thing is for sure...............
Yesterday, on Halloween of all days?? (Prank maybe?) our sweet, FAT, lazy, yellow lab, Lucy Girl, came up missing! She had been messing around with Glen in the driveway all morning and he put her in the backyard before we headed off to softball....... after the game we returned home to a closed gate and no Lucy. Lucy is most definitely too lazy to try and escape and over the 3 years we have had her, she has never ran away!Something smells shady about this to me?? I just hope if someone does have her they will return her to us. We miss our big Lucy Girl. She needs her bone and her bed!!
This weekend we went to our FIRST college football game! I know!....I know!! We are some wild & crazy folks!!! Our nephew is a KinderFrog at TCU and he was going to be down on the field at this game to help welcome the players as they ran out. Riley's cheer team had also been invited to cheer at the Half Time Extravaganza! It was so much fun! The KinderFrogs were adorable! Riley and the other 649 cheerleaders were AWESOME during the half time show!
andUS? Well, we had really good seats on TOP of the FROG HORN!
Seriously?! I have to remember that the next time I turn on FOX NEWS and there is a runaway balloon that resembles........... after it is fully popped on the stove....................
and the adorable Sam Shepard is reporting that a 6yr old little boy may just be trapped inside,
NOT to let myself sit there for TWO WHOLE HOURS waiting and watching to see how it's going to end! I had a fishy feeling as I was watching this object that resembled a flying saucer that something wasn't quite right?? For a few minutes, I thought that I just might be in the Twilight Zone!
This one has HOAX of some kind written all over it!
ps....I am very glad the little boy is safe & sound though!
The Swine Flu kept us indoors all day today, don't think that I didn't have EVERY window in this house open though! Shoo-Shoo...flu bugs!!!
Thank you so much to GiGi and Papa for coming by and throwing Hallie some FUN stuff to do from your car window as you sped by!! haha!! Just kidding....ok! from the end of the driveway!
(The PIG was a birthday gift, but I thought we needed to add him in the picture too....as a "Swine Tribute" of sorts)! I took advantage of some stay home time and cleaned out this nasty pantry. A chore that I had been procrasinating to do for a while now!
It feels so much better when things are cleaned out, so why in the world do I hate to do it and put it off for as long as possible? Looks like I need to do some grocery shopping now!!
Tonight we are staying in and watching The Proposal, one of my all time favorite movies now, can't wait (hate to admit it, but somethimes it kind of nice to "have to" stay home)!!
Indeed, the SWINE FLU has wiggled its way into our home. Sadly, its first prisoner is Hallie May! She came home from school with a high fever, so off we went to the clinic to diagnose the obvious. She had called me this morning from the school nurse's office saying that her throat hurt, but she did not have a fever (as reported by the nurse), and that she was going back to her class.
Unfortunately, I had a head full of foils sitting under the hair dryer at the local beauty parlor...so I was more than happy to hear that she was headed back to class (evidently to spread the SwineLove to her other classmates...mental note to self: feverishly apologize to them for this at a later date)! Geeez!!
After a very strange resistance from the Dr. about giving her Tamiflu, which was a very evident direct result of the country running out of this antiviral liquid gold......in the end, we got the medicine and hopefully, will lick this thing quick!
