Mom wrote a few days ago and said she was sending me a book

I wrote back and said I was sending her her birthday package...
I got WATER FOR ELEPHANTS for her.

Guess what book she sent me?
Yep, WATER FOR ELEPHANTS.

On my way home from work, I saw a guy walking his Golden Retriever. As I passed, I noticed the dog was clenching his end of the leash in his mouth. I mused that each of them thought he was walking the other.

I was downstairs sneaking a cigarette, and down comes my three year old. I figured, no big deal, she is only three and can't tattle on me...
Wrong!! She takes one look at me and runs back up stairs yelling "Momma, Daddy mokin!!"
I was in big trouble, but couldn't help laughing anyway.

having my usual Saturday coffee with my mum at Starbucks this morning and just taking a moment to pause and smile, and wonder at what a beautiful wonderful inspiring woman she is and how lucky I am.

I made my usual Friday afternoon call to my 83 year old Dad today. Usually he complains that he has nothing to do, no one ever calls or visits him, yada yada yada. Well, when I called him (which both my sister and I do twice a week each), he asked if he could call me back tomorrow because he was watching the Masters on TV while playing in a just-for-fun poker tournatment on the computer and waiting for a call from a lady friend about going to her place for dinner!

I had to try really hard not to chuckle into the phone!

I got two calls today first one was to see if I would watch Olivia tomorrow..I then got a call from Cade who along with his mom are off track at school..Mom is going to cover next week for a new dad who wants to spend time with his wife and brand new baby and who cannot afford to pay for a sub...so my daughter said she would do it and they are going to trade off..She needed a place for Cade and he wanted his Ma yippeeeeeee
You have no idea how I've been missing taking care of my little ones, to be honest I've been very unhappy, useless and awful without them...I can hardly wait til morning...
