Feeling Sad =(

My sweet little baby girl is starting her first day of school tomorrow. Granted it is only Pre-K, but none the less, I am feeling quite sad that she has grown up so quickly.

I am happy that she is so excited and looking forward to it so eagerly, but I just can’t help to feel a strange sense of separation that I am not used to….just another milestone in the path of many more to come…..

I think I need to make a list:

1. I am grateful for my daughter being healthy and happy and ready to start school.

2. I am grateful Ed took me out to eat a LOT this past week.

3. I am sooo grateful Ed changed the litterbox tonight!!

4. I am grateful Ed made us breakfast this morning.

5. I am grateful I finished cleaning out one of the linen closets.

6. I am grateful Hurricane Gustov didn’t cause too many problems.

7. I am grateful I am healthy and safe.

8. I am grateful I got another person signed up for the Oct scrapbook retreat today!

9. I am grateful I sold some of my extra Stampin Up stuff!

10. I am grateful I have a lot of gas in my truck!


……….Looks like I don’t have much to be sad about….Ahhhhh, the power of GRATITUDE!!! 😉



Good night.

How do I resist this face???

Isn’t this the sweetest little freakin’ face you have ever seen?

I am on the fence right now about purchasing this cute little Bichon, whom I will call “Dudley”. On the fence, leaning more to one side, is the statement I should be making… I went to WalMart and PetsMart today and bought everything I would need “in case” I decide to buy him…. I also told the breeder I would be there on Sunday to get him…. BUT I am still not 100% sure! haa!!

I actually wanted to go pick him up today, but it was too late by the time my hubby got home. PLUS, we are having a big block party on our street tomorrow and I don’t want to be all tired and crabby from lack of sleep from the puppy, ya know? …

Sooooooo, we’ll see what happens, but I think I will be having another family member shortly! The breeder said that the puppy was rejected by his mom and she didn’t want anything to do with him. He was the 7th and last of the litter. So, the Maltese that had pups the day before took him as her own and nursed him. Isn’t that sweet, yet sad? I hope it all works out and I make the right decision. I hope my 2 cats don’t flip out either! YIKES!!!!!
