Angel food

Today is angelfood pick up. For those who don't know what it is, You order groceries through a church and they they take your order and several hundred other peoples' orders and use buying power to get a huge discount on the food. Two weeks later, you pick up your order. for more info. So every other week, I either put in an order or I pick up an order. One basic unit will feed a normal person for 1 month. to quote the site "The Angel Food program now is helping provide food relief to more than 500,000 families each month." The use donations to provide relief in their neighborhood. Must run. It's time.

dog attacks and mommy bags

Those who know our dog know he's a good guard dog. Yes, he bites, but only if he doesn't know you and you are in his house. I was in the back yard playing chase with Rexy. He knocks me down and grabs hold of my pant leg and gently tugs it back and forth a bit before bounding up to my face to lick me, both paws on my chest. I guess it looked bad cause a cop stopped and ran to the fence. I sooo glad I saw him! I told him to stay and I told Rexy to sit, which he promptly did. I grabbed his collar and had good hold of him before he saw the cop. He went nuts for a minute until I told him "friend command" three times, then he settled and we went to talk to the cop. I told him about Rexy's rescue and his temperment. Sooo, now, the police around here know about our little guard dog. At least he didn't ask for registration or anything cause I have no idea where that stuff is. The cop petted Rexy and saw how good a boy he is, made sure I was ok from the fall, then left. Rexy and I resumed our game.

I reinstated the mommy bag. When Billy and Bobby were little, I carried a bag with me everywhere. In it was a first aide kit, candy, ect. Everything they or I could possibly need. It was Billy's responsibility from age 3 that when we went shopping, he checked the bag and made sure we got anything we had used up and replace it. I now have a similer bag behind the bathroom door. Billy was soo happy to see it. Even as a teen, he bag is an old friend. awww

Dear John....

I got a call from a friend-we'll call her Makinga Pitstop- today. She's breaking it off completely with her on again off again ex. She read me the letter over the phone. So harsh & funny, I had to share!! We'll call the guy John so it'll be a Dear John letter.

Dear John,
Please quit interfering with my life. I made the best decision for me. There is a reason our relationship never works. I left you for one reason and one reason only. You are an off brand used tire. You maybe good in a pinch, but you are cheep and dirty and you have many hidden weaknesses. The ride is never as good as it should be. I never know when you'll leave me stranded. You are dangerous and dirty. There is too much wear and tear from previous owners that just will never be right again.

Mitch, however is a brand new Michellin. He's strong, sturdy, and reliable. I know I can count on his support. I have a warrenty of sorts. He is much safer. He has no scars. He has a good grip on what's important. He's safe. He's good looking. I know he will last a long while. Best of all, the ride is always the best ride I've ever experienced.

Please, just go on down the road and find a new ride.
Sincerely, Makinga Pitstop

This and That

The children are home finally! I missed them soo much! Biodad filled my jeep up so getting to work won't be a problem. Billy and Hubby cooked dinner, each cooking 1/2. Billy's 1/2 was more tender and tastier. I was very impressed! The evil cat is still here and will be until next time biodad takes the boys to visit. I reread Robert Fulghum's All I really need to know I learned in Kindergarten. Such a cute book. It's one of the ones I read occasionally for a pick me up. Bobby and I tried to build a bookcase. no go. I'll try again tommorrow, but today, my mind just wasn't making heads or tails of the directions. Club live sent me a pink coffee cup and I've been using it nonstop. Our house has an unspoken pink rule...If it's pink, It's mine, as I'm the only female in the house. I'm not a real fan of pink. I'm not a girly girl at all, but anything that lets me keep my stuff works for me. I showed Billy how to play the club games and got him his own account, so he'll be earning his own prizes soon. Have I mentioned I have occasional ADD days? Today, I can't stay on topic very long. ON the desk in front of me sits a single picture frame. In it is a very awesome picture of hubby and I at his brother's wedding. I know this. However, I was missing the boys something fearce, so I had hubby put a picture in front of the awesome picture of us. The picture he chose was him, his grandfather, and our two boys. The boys were dressed alike. GOD! I used to be mean! Anyway, the picture is dated 98, so the boys were 2 and 4. It's one of my favorite pictures of them. You can see their blue eyes clearly and grandpa king looks so happy holding Bobby.
Photos in the inbox. Hubby, in finding the picture he wanted on the desk, took out several pictures. They sit now in his inbox. 1. him and our german shepard/chow mix 2. a picture of me, Billy, and Bobby in front of biodad's house 3. My graduation picture 4. Hubby and Billy 5. Hubby and Bobby
We really need to get some newer pictures taken. Maybe I can win the camera from club live and take pics with it :) I'm off to play and try. I'll write again soon. Love you all. -Mama
