Yes I've lost my mind

I have just returned from a very long journey....

Where have I been you ask?

Well I have been to Rock Island Tenn to pick up Two of the newest additions to the family..

Meet Molly and Melvin..

The plan was to put them in the barn..That was the plan..but the temp here is dropping and Molly and Melvin are only 5 days old, they have to be bottle fed 3 to 4 times a day and we have no heat lamps to put in the barn (first thing on my to do list tomorrow)

So Can anyone say Green Acres?

Because that's what it's feeling like...I never thought there would come a day that I would have Goats in my house but as I type this I have two in my house..

They are Chad and Chase's new pets so Chad has them in his room in a box he is officially on goat duty...that means if they get up in the middle of the night he has to fix a bottle and feed them..

Have I lost my mind you ask?

Yes I have.

Christmas 2009

Just four days before Christmas Sister and I had not one thing bought for Christmas...We loaded up at 9am Monday morning in hopes to start and finish our shopping in one day..we returned home at 1:30am Tuesday morning, it was tense but somebody had to do it. Just two days before Christmas Husband had a flare up and I was almost sure we would end up spending Christmas in the Hospital we were in the Doctors office on Christmas eve They increased his meds and we are still waiting on test results BUT he seems to be feeling ok for now and we were home not in the Hospital. The kids had a great day, Cassie was in shock she got a horse (which came from her Dads, they brought it to our house so she can ride more often.) and Tony and I bought her a saddle the look on her face as priceless! Chase and Kane got Motorcycles and Chad got a new pipe for his dirt bike and a new helmet that he wears around the house because he is so proud of it (yes my children are some what strange..but there mine so what do you expect?) Husband got lots of cloths and I bought him a new wedding band.. AND..Husband..Dear Sweet Man of mine bought me a Canon EOS Rebel XS Camera...I've wanted one for so long and he so surprised me I cried when I opened it and the kids thought I was have some sort of nervous break down..it was GREAT! So I put together a little video of our Christmas this year, this was from my old camera...can't wait to post pictures from my new camera...when I figure out how to use it..AHEM! blessings!!

Dropped Call Part II

So if you haven't read my last post "Dropped Call" you should it would clear up any questions you may have about this post.

I had a question from Miss Carrie if I kept the cell phone...Uhhh..no the cell phone is no longer with me....

Which leads me to the "Dropped Call Part II" post...

I needed a phone to replace mine and we have one as a back up phone, my oldest son Chad had used it last (before he got his new one for his birthday) So I took the back up phone and had it hooked up...as I was flipping through the phone I saw the title "moto home" in the video section so I thought I would see what that was all about...

In the video I could hear Chase laughing hysterically and then I saw Chad on Chase's little dirt bike and while I was watching it wasn't registering with me and I look closer and think..

"hey that looks just like my kitchen table"


Yes my friends he was riding his little Brother's dirt bike IN MY HOUSE!!

I was in such shock I didn't know what to say...

Believe me when Chad and Chase got home I had thought of a few things to say.

So lesson learned here...

A. Boys have learned to not video things that might incriminate them.

B. That when Mom says she speaks with Jesus on a daily basis and prays that they will always be found out when they are doing something they shouldn't she means it!

A Dropped Call...

This weekend was full of running. We had our Christmas play Fri.-Sun. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and all the kids and adults did so good! There were a few mishaps this weekend...My dryer decided to die once more, after behaving for a solid week it went on the blink again, gotta love those appliances!

And then there was the issue of the "dropped call"

Does anyone feel this could be a Cassie Marie story?

Well she was talking with a friend on the phone (using my cell phone) and the fact of the matter is we all know (even if we would rather not know) that sometimes you gotta "go" in the middle of a phone conversation...don't act like you've never talked on the phone while doing your business...Ahem.

Well just as she reached to flush she dropped my phone in the toilet..and if you must know (which I'm sure you would rather not know) it hit the toilet before it was flushed...

I don't even want to talk about fishing the phone out of the toilet..Because I assure you it wasn't pretty.

So just in case you wanted to know (even though I'm sure you didn't) that's the story of the dropped call. Blessings.

I did not run away..

I am very behind on the blogging these days...Tony is home and is feeling "ok" he goes next week to see the specialist, they want us to retry the gluten free diet and on top of that take yeast out of his diet too...I'm feeling a little responsible for the last trip to the hospital because I gave up so soon on the gluten free diet so once again we will give it a try...

In other news we had our Grand Opening Play at Church last night they are doing The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. I think this is one of my favorite things about Christmas time I love going and watching the plays. Cassie Marie is in the play She plays the part of Imogen Herdman and boy does she play it well! If you've never read the book or seen the play your missing out it has a great message.

I have to close for now but I promise I won't wait so long before I post again.Blessings!

In a rush to get out the door, I'm heading over to the Hospital. Tony is back on solid food as of yesterday, Dr. K is sending him to see a specialist as soon as he is well enough, I'm learning to cope and lean on God more than ever. I'm a little stressed that Christmas is coming up but it is what it is, and I'm trying to stay on the positive side. Thanks so much for the prayers, I'll keep you updated! Blessings.

Tony went back in the Hospital Friday, He is having another round with Crohn's...At this point and time I feel very helpless, and he is very discouraged. Please pray that God will give us direction and the Doctors wisdom. Blessings.

New Post

Thanks to all my faithful readers who visit and see that I have slacked on my post lately, I would tell you that I have been so busy that I had absolutely no time to post except that would be a lie...I've just been a little on the lazy side (grin)

So the weather here is beginning to get colder around here...and so now is the time that my heating and cooling unit at my Salon has decided to quit..die..it has went on to be with it's maker. Did I mention the unit was 3 yrs. old..and did I mention that it is no longer under warranty?

AHHH the joys of owning your own business!

We have hooked up a few heaters to hold us over until the repair man (which name will go unmentioned to protect him,) shows up to fix the very dead unit.

So tonight as I put a load of towels (which would be every single towel we own...Mom that would be a great Christmas present if your reading this) into the dryer and I hit the button to start the dryer...


Great, this is just great! I have wet towels, and two children who have yet to take a shower...what to do you ask?

I will admit that paper towels came to mind..or they could just drip dry...

I found two very thin...you can see through them..why do I still even have these towels in the very back of the bathroom cabinet, the boys never even batted an eye when I handed them the see through towels so I didn't say anything either..just one problem, we now have NO towels..

Guess Husband will wonder why Paper towels are on the bathroom counter instead of a fresh clean towel tonight when he gets home from work...poor Husband.
