A BRA THAT FITS & A CAN OPENER THAT WORKS

Monday, November 27, 2006

OK, people, I can't stand this much longer......really!
plague #10- stomach virus, 4 kids a puking, is not funny. Mostly because I know I wont be far behind them, if they got it, I will get it.
I think God is telling me,"Let my people GO!"
I think it was kids who carried the Black Death, not the poor misunderstood RAT.

You know, sometimes you wonder why you do this crazy stuff, that drains you emotionally, physically, mentally, socially, financially, and all the other -allys. You wonder if your doing the right thing, ect.

and then one of the little plague carriers falls asleep on the catfood pad, and it just melts your heart! and you think, How can I not provide a safe, loving, catfood pad to sleep on?

I asked God, Is it really your will for us to be foster parents?
His answer so far........(if your keeping track we have 3 babies & a 4 yr old)
1- twins
2-lice x 2
3- pink eye x 3
4- ear infections x 4
5- 3 missed days of work
6- runny noses x 4
7- cough x 4
8- 3 different social workers, all wanting to come to our house on different nights
9- a call at 4:00 am, to see if we were interested in 4 more!!!!
How many plagues did God send before the king got the message?

LICE!
THAT'S RIGHT, LICE
CARE TO ADD LICE TO MY MIX OF CRAZY?
WHY ME?
"THEY" call from the caycare today, and say, "umm, did you know the twins have lice?" WELL,of course I knew! NO, I had no stinking idea. I just bathed them last night and didn't see anything. I am a nurse, I have seen such things before and DID NOT SEE ANY LAST NIGHT. Where did these come from and why didn't I see them.
You know what's happening right now, don't you. that's right. MY Head is itching off. I am going to scatch myself to death.
The only good thing to come of this, is my house is clean! (and I shaved the babies heads)
Don't Look at me like that! What was I supposed to do?
Talk about laundry, I've washed everything not nailed down.
Wait! I missed a cat....gotta go.....do more laudndry

OK, now it's Saturday November 18th

I'm still tired..and still crazy.
I can't find a pair of Fantasy pants like Joshilyn Jackson. But who has time to shop.
I hope everyone in my life likes catalog gifts. That is, IF I have the time and energy to pick up the phone or stay on the computer long enough to make an order.
When I get to heaven, I sure hope God says it was His will for me to be a foster parent. I'm going to be really upset if it's not.
Friday November 17th
I'm tired.
People who work full time and have 5 kids are crazy.
Now I know why hampsters eat their young.

Ok, anybody? anybody find my mind yet?
I didn't think so.
Anybody hazzard a guess as to how much formula 3 babies can drink in one day? ...A WEEKS WAGES, that's how much.
One of the babies drank 3-8oz bottles, one right after the other, they were starving! I cut him off after 3, I was afraid he would EXPLODE!
PLUS, the daycare worker ( Ilove her) feed them baby cereal thru out the day, ending up using a whole box of cereal! we'll have these babies chunkie in no time!

I have officially lost my mind today.
NO, really!
"they" called today to see if I would take a set of 10 1/2 month old twin boys, malnurished,(they are so tiny, you can't imagine)failure to thrive,neglected, with possible drug use, (not the boys)Like any sane person I said "NO". I have no car seat room, or room, room. and hung up, then the phone rings again! It's the supervisor. Will you PLEASE think about it, they have no where else to go.
So now I have 3 babies under 1, (that is under the age of 11 months) and a unpotty trained 4 yr old.I work full time by the way.
pray for me & if you happen to run across my mind, please send it home.

Monday november 13th
IT IS TOO STILL MONDAY!
SOME TIMES, YOU JUST WANT TO HIDE FROM WHO YOU REALLY ARE.

Sunday, November 12, 2006

YES, I KNOW, that in 20 years I'll wish there was lots of noise,kids yelling, laughing, asking for this & that.The grown ones and the little ones. I'll wish there were bottles to be washed and made, a diaper to be changed. ect, ect.
But allow me to be politically incorrect for just a moment. (I'm not any other time, so why now?)
I WANT SOME PEACE AND QUITE IN THIS PLACE. YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN BOTTLE, CHANGE YOUR OWN DIAPER, DRIVE YOURSELF TO THE MALL, FIGHT TILL YOU KILL EACH OTHER. I DON'T CARE IF YOU NEED YOUR CHEERLEADING UNIFORM DRY CLEANED, I FORGOT, OK? I DON'T WANT TO GO TO YOUR BASKETBALL GAME, YOUR TEAM SUCKS AND THEY NEVER WIN.IF THE CAT PUKES IN THE FLOOR ONE MORE TIME, IT'S BEING PUT TO SLEEP, NOT GOING TO SEE JESUS. I DON'T CARE I JUST PUT THE PACIFIER IN YOUR MOUTH THAT FELL ON THE FLOOR AT WALMART. I'M NOT DOING ANY MORE LAUNDRY, WEAR WHAT YOUR WORE YESTERDAY, IT WONT KILL YOU.
I WANT TO BE IN SOLITARY CONFINEMENT, JUST MAKE SURE I HAVE LOTS OF GOOD BOOKS. FORGET THE BOOKS, I'M GOING TO SLEEP ANYWAY.
OK, WELL, I'M GOING TO DO ANOTHER LOAD OF FREAKIN LAUNDRY NOW, DAYDREAM OVER...............

MY BLAKIE-BLAKE IS SO CUTE, BUT HE SURE IS A WILD BOY.
THE GREATEST THING ABOUT BEING A MEME, IS KNOWING HIS MAMA HAS TO TAKE HIM HOME WHEN SHE GOES! AND TO THINK IN MARCH SHE'LL HAVE 2 OF THEM! BETTER HER THAN ME. I WASN'T WOMAN ENOUGH TO HAVE 2 UNDER 2.

HERE'S A SECRET,just between you and me, I ONLY MARRIED MY HUSBAND BECAUSE HE LOOKed SO GORGEOUS IN HIS MARINE DRESS BLUES. There is nothing better, greater, wonderful, gorgeous, SEXY, proud than a Marine in his dress blue uniform. Of course I've stayed for nearly 20 years for different reasons! But that uniform started it all.

I almost hate Sunday nights. It makes me realize I have to go to work tomorrow. and how much I have to do, which makes me realize I don't like work, which makes me realize I need to win the lottery .....or something, anything but work. I like my job, but one little mistake costs thousands of dollars. And I make mistakes.Geeez, what's the world coming to when you have to work to make a living?
SATURDAY, NOV.4TH
REALLY IT IS!

DID YOU PEOPLE KNOW, it is easier to potty train a girl than a boy?
I has an idea this was the case, but now I know for sure!
and might I add, I do not care for it.
We now have a four year old little boy, who is not potty trained yet. yeaaaa me, pick me, I'll do it! I wonder about my sanity.....alot.
All 3 of my girls were potty trained by age 2 and never looked back. Either I was very lucky, a good girl potty trainer, or boys are hard headed and nasty. Maybe I'm right on all accounts.
From now on, I will put, "are they potty trained?" on my list of important things to ask the social worker before I say,"I'll be there to pick him up". potty training is not for sissys!

Sweetwater,Tn. As American as apple pie. One of the most beautiful little old down towns in America. This is close to where God lives, but not quite. You may go here to visit, but NOT to live. There is only one way for a place like this to keep it's culture & quantness. Visit it......do not move there!

Ok, People, this is REALLY a post dated 11-1-06. It just doesn't seems to to be that way.BUT IT IS!
THIS MY FRIENDS IS THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN ADOPTION CIRCLES! FOSTER TO ADOPT! THE COST IS MINIMAL AND DON'T TELL ME YOU CAN'T GET BABIES, I HAVE PROOF TO THE CONTRARY! WHY GO OVER SEAS TO ADOPT BABIES? I HAVE NO IDEA, WE SEEM TO HAVE NO SHORTAGE IN THESE UNITED STATES.AND TRUST ME, SOME OF THESE KIDS LIVE IN CONDITIONS THAT WOULD RIVAL THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES.
IF YOUR THINKING OF ADOPTION, THINK ABOUT FOSTER TO ADOPT.
I WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS ON THE HOW TO'S, ECT.
