II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Online Romance

I have fallen in love...over the internet...with this puppy! I can't believe how I am feeling. You'd think I am having a baby tomorrow or something! ha ha

But seriously, now that I KNOW we are getting her tomorrow at noon, I am like a little mother hen. I am trying to get everything ready. I need to buy a crate, bed, bowls, collar, chews, toys, food, and of course every little girl needs a new outfit!!! ha ha ha

Okay, I am giggling as I type this because I have always thought that people who DRESS their DOGS in CLOTHES were nuts....but now that I am gonna have my own little princess puppy....I can't resist all the cute outfits! I have a whole list of places to go because of course, I want to get the absolute CUTEST stuff I can find. Atwoods, PetsMart, Target, Petco, Wal-Mart. I want to check them all out before I decide. Should I go with a pink theme? Or maybe red? Dots? Stripes? Paisley? so many choices....! he he he

I am so consumed with all this that I can't even think about anything else and that's not good seeing as how I am covering for a friend of mine who is on vacation and I have to do my work plus 3 of her doctors today, tomorrow and this weekend. Plus, I am supposed to be planning a Valentine party for Brooklyn's school next week and calling all the parents about what to bring today. Ya right! It's practically killing me to sit here and work until I pick Brooklyn up from school at 3 and then we can head to town.

Oh by the way, I want to mention that since this is sort of an "unexpected expense" I was going to use my "special money" to pay for her. Ever since I was a little girl, my mom has been giving me $2 bills for my birthday. I've never spent a single one. She usually gives me the amount of my age. So like when I turned 29 this past year, I got 14 $2 bills and a $1. Anyhow, I always put them in this little wooden box I have that has a lock and that's where they've been since I was a little girl--and the key has always been in a little jewlery box in my underwear drawer. So today, I am finally EXCITED about getting to spend them on something that I really WANT and I go to my undie drawer to get the key and low and behold...I've been burglarized! The box is ripped open and the keys are GONE! I spent the next 30 minutes tearing up the house and every toybox we own looking for them (because I know the crook was someone 7 or 3). But, to no avail...I can NOT find the key! So I have all this money I want to spend..and it's locked up! So my hubby calls and I tell him the story and he says, "Well, I wasn't going to let you spend them anyway. I have some money set aside for your Valentines present...so I'll just give you the cash!" Yippee!! I could have kissed him right through the phone!!! I take back anything negative I ever said about him and his gift-giving/thoughtfulness. He is CERTAINLY making up for times past lately! Thank you SO MUCH BABE!

Anyway, on another note: Earlier while I was sitting at my desk typing, after I had been to the gym and was stinky, nasty, sweaty...Grant walked up to me and when I looked up I started CrAcKiNg up! He had gotten one of my candles in a jar that is almost burned out and put it up to his nose to smell....but got the black soot ALL over his face and chin. Of course, I had to snap a picture. He wasn't very happy with me about laughing and taking his picture...so I let him take mine too.

Congratulations Jen!!! I am so happy for. Your hubby sure had a great idea for your V-Day present! See, they can be full of surprises sometimes...that is why we love them so.

I can't wait to see some pics of your new puppy when you get her home.

I love that pic of Grant. That is hilarious! I was cracking up.
He did good taking your picture too. By the way, your Face and Arms look SO SKINNY in this picture!

Hey girl! I am so excited about your puppy! I am jealous! LOL. I think you should either go with pink or paisley. It is like having a baby all over again but without the breast milk and wake ups every 4 hours. Your hubby sure loves you! But by the way what ever happened to your keys?
