…and You're a monkey!

those crazy kids

Blessings

Yesterday we had to move my step-dad to Hospice care.

I have to start with telling you I hate to refer to him as my step-dad because that just takes away from who he has really been in my life.  My dad passed away when I was 16, he was a wonderful man, he taught me about integrity, loyalty, work-ethic and trustworthiness.  My mom married my second dad when I was 19.  Dad2 taught me how to be an adult.  He took the base that my dad built and reinforced it.

Almost two years ago Dad2 was told he only had 4-6 months to live.  Last night my mother read to me a list of blessings that were brought into his live in the nearly two years since we were told he had cancer.  Our family has truly been blessed to have these two years.

In the last 2 years:

  • He got to meet his Great-grandson (his bio daughters grandchild)
  • He has seen 4 grand-kids graduate high school
  • I graduated college (much bigger deal to him then I knew according to mom)
  • He got to walk one grand-daughter down the aisle at her wedding
  • He got to spend time with Jaxon (the newest great-grandchild, born in May, who I believe he was waiting to meet)
  • He got to help Sharon find the kittens that momma cat hid in the tires (Might not sound like a big deal to you and me but it was huge to Sharon
  • He explored the world of bugs, golf cart rides and dog chasing with Harry
  • He got to see Jacob follow in his foot steps and join the Navy

There are more, many more.  I am so happy that we had these last 2 years and I am going to miss him so much.  I have teased him for years that “when there are two ways to do something he always picks the hard way, if it is harder it must be better”

God be with you till we meet again.  I will look forward to meeting both my dads at the gates.

I need a job!!!

I love my kids more then life itself.  I love being home with them during the day but I am so not used to this kind of energy.  I need to get a job….soon.

I think part of the problem is that as much as I love my babies, we need to have 2 incomes.  That makes it even harder to enjoy my days with them.

When Lightening Strikes

It is storming out right now.  I love a good storm, as long as we are talking weather storms.  I hate life storms, but I do enjoy when someone is out there trying to start a storm in your life but it turns out to amount to nothing but a cool, humorous breeze.

My hubby is a restaurant manager.  In that line of work there is always on thing you can count on….working with with immature.  Hubby had one girl work for him that was a bit upset with him and quit – I think it mostly comes from the fact that she wanted to be manager…but I could be wrong.  She sent my hubby a text threatening to tell me that he is flirting with the girls at work….REALLY???  I think the funny thing is that he tells me just about everything, and I married him knowing he was a flirt (Hello???  How do you think he got me?).  So, right now my hubby and I are enjoying a good laugh at her expense.

The scary thing is that she is a lunch lady at a school that my daughter will be attending next year if we move to the apartment we are looking at….hehehehe and I am saving every text message, IM and email she sends.
