Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy

Oh my, what a very long week.

This week I have learned:

How much I love my brother.

How strong my sister is.

What a wonderful woman my brother chose to love.

How terribly lucky he is that she loves him.

How great and supportive my parents are...all four of them.

How little sleep I can still function with.

Stress is a very effective diet. (not one I recommend but hey...I'm not gonna complain)

Having someone do your laundry is such a wonderful kindness. (Thank you Carrie and Manda)

I don't need an alarm clock with River living here.

I need chocolate in my life.

My kids are really amazing and they actually are listening to what I'm trying to teach them.

I hate the rain.

If you put on wet tennis shoes...they never dry.

Living without a dryer is only as big an inconvenience as you let it be.

The mean dog can jump over the fence but only does if I lock the dog door.

Kids get excited over medals...doesn't matter what color.

And I'm sure I learned some other things too.......

Love the story. I got a dog door for my guy years ago and it was one of the best investments I ever made. Dog Doors gives you and your dog the freedom he deserves.
