Here I come Florida.......again!

So I haven't written since we got back from our trip to Florida. It was WONDERFUL!!! We had such a great time, even though the original reason for going was very depressing. My step dad is hanging in there and it was great to spend time with him. Now i'm headed back...not even two weeks later. My mom had a massive heart attack last Friday July 25th, 2008. Her right artery was 100% blocked, which was causing the attack. They found two other arteries that were both 95% block. I was like geez no wonder she doesn't feel like doing ANYTHING!!! She is not a candidate for open heart surgery because her health is horrible. They were able to put a stint in the artery that had the 100% blockage and they are trying to get her strong enough to clear up the other two. I was told "you need to come" after she almost died on Tuesday. She is stable for now, but it seems to change from one minute to the next. I am trying to stay positive and saying lots of prayers. I just hope if it is her time to go home to the Lord that it will happen while I am there so she isn't alone.
I plan on posting alot of pictures when I get back.

Florida here we come!!

Well in about 24 hours I will be in beautiful Florida soaking up the sun! As I posted earlier, I am going to Florida because my step dad has been diagnosed with lung cancer and it not expected to live much longer. While I am very sad about this news, I am definitely going to enjoy myself because it will most likely be the last time we are ALL together. So I am signing off until next week.

Hammie the Toilet Paper Bandit

My little weenie dog Hammie is such a mess. He has a serious addiction to toilet paper. This morning I was sitting on my porch drinking coffee and in five minutes he managed to get in the bathroom closet, pull out THREE rolls of toilet paper and string them all across the house. Not one but three!!! To top it all off he had to "break in" to the bathroom closet to get the toilet paper. Smart? I don't know maybe so. This is the same dog that managed to get into my purse that was up on a shelf and drag everything out of it including all of the things in my wallet. I came into the living room to find my credit cards and cash strung all over the floor. Luckily I caught him in time before he shredded the money. I couldn't believe that a dog that has short stubby legs was able to somehow reach my purse, but he did! So back to the toilet paper. When I found the mess I was infuriated especially considering this isn't the first time he has chewed up paper all over the house. Then I saw his cute little face and my heart melted. He looked at me with his sweet little face and puppy dogs eyes like "what did I do mom?" Oh and lets not forget while he's looking up at me he has toilet paper hanging out of his mouth......boy you gotta love the puppy stages.
