card and stuff...

I got another way cute getting to know you card in the mail. Doesn't Angie have the most darling little family. For those of you that don't know her, she is a local AZ girl who teaches at the best scrapbook store in Mesa. (Scrapbooks Etc) She is wonderfully talented and has the funniest sense of humor and a huge heart as well as beautiful. There is nothing I don't love about her. Check out her blog and you'll see why.

Sorry I've been MIA. Lots going on around here to keep me busier than I'd like to be. My boy is not home yet. Now they've pushed it back to Saturday...Friday if we are lucky. Makes me grouchy just thinking about it...among other things. Lots of other stresses to make me grouchy too. Apparently I'm not suppose to get stressed out because it affects the rest of the family. Option 1 is to bottle it all up until I blow. Option 2 is to take brisk walks and talk to myself like an idiot till I fell better. They both have their merits...we'll see. :o)

Yesterday Kyle brought home a dog named Lily for a sleep over to see how she would get along with Pappi in an effort to keep her. Don't let the sweet name fool you. This is not some sweet little dog. This is what I like to call a horse, otherwise known as a great dane. She is scared to death of me, but loves Mark...go figure. She is "suppose" to be house trained but decided that even though the back door was wide open that the best place to unleash her enormous bladder was on my living room carpet...mind you I just had my carpets steam cleaned a mere 12 hours earlier. lovely! She is also skilled at removing anything her heart desires off the kitchen counters merely by walking past them. We won't even talk about the barking. Needless to say, she has been taken back and my carpet was spot cleaned.

I still haven't answered emails or check out blogs. I feel just terrible about it...so sorry! So much craziness! That's all I've got for tonight. I packing a combo pack of tired, headache, cramps, hormones, stress etc. Don't worry. I'll be good in a couple days. You can't keep this girl down. :o)

Great idea to have a sleep over first with a new dog!!
If you would quit tempting me to new blogs I might have time to get my stuff done!!
Waiting for the arrival news...Hopefully it will be sooner then later.

Oh dear...Great Danes can be so sweet too...I'm sorry it didn't work out! I hope the boy gets home sooner than that...ugh! I vote for walking around muttering, at least you're getting exercise AND alone time...

Well I know you can't keep a good woman down!!! Option 2 sounds fine to me...just walk and talk...walk and talk girlfriend!

I would so NOT be having a great dane in my house...even for a visit. It's a good thing you have a carpet specialist in the family...yikes!!!

Wishing your Chad would get home soon. Is he at least back in the states?

Love and Hugs, Andi

Hey me again...was just wondering if Brittany and the family are okay. She hasn't updated her blog in awhile and was just getting worried.Toodles!

Andi said...

Okay Jolene...mine may not be as cute and creative as some of those I've see you post, but I made you my very own 4 x 6 about me. My hubby mailed it your way from the post office today. Just wanted you to know it was on the way.

Any word from Chad. Where exactly is he now?
