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.

Okay, I am really bummed that I don't have more time because I SOOOO Badly want to tell you guys the whole story...but I just can't spend that long on the computer this morning. Anyway, I also couldn't WAIT to tell you this ...so here is the "Short" version

3 exciting things happened to me yesterday:

1. I burned 1034 calories in 2 hr and 14 min. at the gym yesterday and when I stepped on the scale I was at 133! That is 2 pounds down since Thanksgiving and a total of 15 down from February!)

2. While I was getting my hair colored today, a friend of mine texted me and asked if we wanted her tickets to The Christmas Train as well as 4 free meal tickets for last night! Well, I know most of you don't know what The Christmas Train is--and sorry--I don't have time to tell you right now...but it's somewhere we've been wanting to go for YEARS but either can't afford the tickets--or else it's always sold out! So, I went and picked up all the free tickets and we went last night and it was SO FUN! LOVED it! Hooray for free--unexpected fun! Thanks SO MUCH Joyce!!

3. AND--while I was racing around town running my errands, I had to stop by the Library to drop off some books and THERE taped on the library door was a picture of my dog Emmie!!! (Macie) She'd been picked up by the pound! I could not believe it. I'd been calling the pound weekly since she disappeared and had finally given up about 3 weeks ago because I figured it'd been a month and if she hadn't been found--she was probably gone. Anyway, so I IMMEDIATELY called the number on the paper and the lady tells me, "oh yes, that dog was given away last week." I'm like "WHAT????" "I've been calling you and calling you (even talking to THIS particular lady) and you told me you'd keep her on the list as missing until I called to take her off---and then you find her and then immediately give her away to someone?????????" I was so flustered at that moment. So I asked her if there was anyway we could get her back and she said she didn't think so but she'd check into it and let me know tomorrow (which is now today, Friday). Brooklyn immediately started bawling when she saw the sign with her Emmie's picture on it. I know this whole ordeal with losing Sadie and then Emmie was really hard on her emotionally.
Anyway, I don't know what is going to happen--but I have totally settled it within myself that if we don't get her back, it's okay. If she is with a family who loves her and is taking good care of her and that she is comfortable with--then I'm THRILLED. I'm just SO HAPPY to know she is alive!
Anyway, I know that was short and sweet...but I have GOT to get off here and get on with my day.
Hope to tell ya'll more about what happens with the dog and all about our Christmas Train experience when I have more time!
Happy Friday!!
O. M. G!!!

That's great that Macie is alive and well! Hopefully she's gone to a good home that will love and care for her just like you guys did.

Wow! A lot going on there. I haven't burned 1,034 in a week - let alone two hours!! Good for you. And free stuff? Love that!! And that's so awesome about Macie. You're so right - if she can't be with you, at least she's with a good family that will love and care for her. And you've still got that silly Sam!!
