Thought for the day...

I got this in one of my emails today:

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY................ Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders & says...'Oh no....she's awake!!

Yesterday, Chase, Ava my mom and I went to Target. They had a great sale on Nature Valley granola bars and, of course, I had some great coupons, lol! My mom is completely uninterested in my sales and coupons :) so she went over to the garden center to check out the plants. After I gathered all of my stuff, I headed over to check out. I started to feel so shaky and faint in line that I was certain I was going to pass out. I then realized I didn't even have my wallet on was in my mom's purse. I asked the cashier to please suspend my transaction I would return in a few moments with my wallet.

As we headed back to the garden center I told Chase I was not feeling well and I was concerned that I might pass out. His response, "I hope I can get you into the cart!"

In case anyone is wondering, I never passed out, so Chase's assistance was not needed, lol!

The Dog Ate My Homework!

Really! We got a puppy dog on Saturday, March 1st. Jessica had gone to the Humane Society on Thursday late and called me quite excited. Turns out, a breeder could not sell one of her puppies and decided she could no longer care for her. SHe is a full bred standard poodle and is cream colored. She is 4 months old and is as sweet as can be, albeit a bit mischevious though! She was underweight and we suspect she may have been abused. Whenever we raised our hands around her at all, she would cower down and move away. It is terribly sad that she was mistreated and just dropped off at the Humane Society. It made me really said everytime I thought about it, but my heart kept reminding me that she was meant to be for us.

We named her Madison and we call her Maddie for short sometimes. I printed off a test for school and she actually tried to eat it! I never really thought I could actually use that excuse, lol!

It has been somewhat bittersweet as I really miss my Abbie girl. I am glad that we can give this new sweet girl a great family that really cares about her. She is currently sitting to me eating Chase's sneakers...I think we have our work cut out for us :)

I love you...

I meant to post this back on Valentine's Day, but kept forgetting. As some of you know, I don't like coffee, but I love Starbucks frapuccinos. They are quite pricey, not to mention they lack any real nutrition, so I do try to keep my fraps to a mininum! I don't know how this obsession came about, but I so look forward to the days when I do allow myself to purchase one. For Valentine's Day this year, Paul gave me a nice card and inside the card was the telltale little envelope of a Starbucks gift card...WOOHOO! It is a liitle trifold card and the Starbucks card sits inside of that. Anyhow, I opened up the trifold and inside it read, "I love you more than you love Starbucks". I thought that was just so sweet.
