my dog my friend

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

My hubby came rolling in one day 14 years ago with the cutest little ball of chocolate fluff i'd ever seen.Of course she was a gift for the kids!They soon lost interest in her newness and she grew up!She chewed the toys,shoes and yes even homework!I was the one that took over her care and soon became her "mama"!?She would crawl in my lap when i was gardening and sleep or sit beside me when I cried for my mama after she passed away,laying a gentle loving paw on my leg as to let me know she was there.Dont get me wrong,the girls(20&16) loved her and played with her often But,she is and will always be my dog!She walks everyday with me,follows me when I mow,garden,clean house and get the mail..she is my friend!hugs sp

    It's amazing how attached and attuned to our feelings they get! My babies know when I'm upset and they tend to cling right then. Great tribute to your friend!!!

Amazing Realization

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Yesterday my hubby decided to bring me home spinach,cantaloupe,grapes,lean beef,a water bottle and some pretty flowers to put in a vase!I was shocked!!He always brings me home crap.That's harsh but old habits die hard!He's my BFF and it meant the world to me that he brought home fruit and veggies instead of candy and donuts!I was sitting petting my dog yesterday and she begged for a carrot!!I gave her one and she gobbled it up like candy.It's taken me a while but I realized....I'm reaching for water instead of soda,fruit instead of ice cream and raw veggies instead of chips!!I'M MAKING WISE CHOICES!!!Hugs!

    Ouch - and these people think they are helping? They need a flashing warning sign - diet saboteurs!

WE believe in you! You can do whatever it takes to get to your goals and don't let the scale or anyone else get you off track.

I've been having scale woes too, bought a new scale and it weighs higher than the dr office, another ouch! So haven't decided if I'm keeping it but I did go down 3 lbs so that was encouraging.

Keep up the great work and NEVER NEVER QUIT! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    YESSSS!
ATTAGIRL!

I gave my best input over on the thread you started, but here you are turning the corner on disappointment and your fire has ignited!

YIPPEE!

I'm a big believer in messages from God, but I think He's sending you "to school" on this one....look for the lesson.

SPARK ON!

16 year old blues!

Saturday, March 19, 2011

Its obvious that in Texas Spring has sprung!The flowers are blooming,birds are singing and building nests,I got a wee sunburn..I am so excited because,this is my favorite time of year!I can live outside...mowing,planting,reading,exercisi
ng
building something,eating bbq!My hubby is the same way too.But the misquitoes
gnats,flies,wasps pests in general drive me nuts!My 16 year old would stay out
side for hours when she was little and now?She's afraid of a bug or spider and the wind messes up her hair!!We are Besties most of the time but,she is almost 17 and has her own life and she DOES make time for me alot!Every Monday she calls me at lunch and asks How much weight have you lost???One pound I say WOOHOO! GO MOMMY she replies.If I say one negative thing I get the STANK EYE!!She has one more year of school before she goes to college and I am going to be sad for me but happy she's growing up.Hugs!happy Saturday sp

    Awww...so sweet. (not the bugs though) Your daughter sounds great and I'm sure you've raised her perfectly. Your bond with her will always be there no matter what. Even through those college years.

    Sounds like a great relationship, love the way she keeps you positive.

My boys are 23 and 25 this year and its very hard to treat them as individual young men and not my baby boys - but when you build a strong relationship when they are young I promise you, it comes back tenfold later on - the love and protection they give back brings a smile a mile wide!

Mind you, as for the creepie crawlies.......... I'm with your Daughter on that one lol !
