Its been so long since I have blogged… so many things I have wanted to share… church stuff, thigns God is doing in my life, kid funnies, family oddities… you know, all the good stuff!! 🙂
So I'll start with the fact that I wish we had never gotten the puppy… the puppy who thinks the sun rises and sets on me, and no matter how bad he has to go potty has to have 5 minutes of loving from ME first… its the weirdest thing. How do they choose their favorite? Probably because I have to do all the work!
I have noticed that training a dog is much like training a child. Consistency… and if its going to be a rule in the future… don't let them do it now. EVER.
For example… if you don't plan on having cookies and cake for breakfast, don't unwittingly surprise everyone with pound cake, hot chocolate and marshmallows for breakfast. You will SURELY be listening to the begging and whining for cake and cookies from one little three year old EVERY morning for the next THREE MONTHS!!
Bryan has a slow day at work… 6 patients instead of 12 – that is a RECORD!! they were going to let him go home on an “overstaff” – BUT then they decided they needed him for some transport escorting… so we are going to go meet Daddy for lunch and then go to the Tea store at the other end of town to use my birthday gift certificate!!
Hopefully I'll be back and chatting regularly … for a while at least! 🙂 Until I get distracted, yet again!
OH and ONE MORE THING!!! we are doing the The Glorious Coming advent devotional thing written by Ann Voskamp, and will be setting up a little Jesse Tree today… I am very excited to start!! even if it ends up being a little old for the kiddos, I think they will get lots out of it… and I know Bryan and I will.
