Hello everyone. I have my 16 year old home from school today, she's complaining of stomach ache. Hopefully it will pass soon. Other than that, I am off to a good start today. So far I have straightened up the house, started laundry, walked the dogs and ran to Target for a few things. Just having a quick cup of coffee now before I start some more chores. It's sunny outside today but still chilly. I'm going to make a big pot of Minestrone soup for dinner. I hope everyone has a great day!

Now that I have kids and am thinking I will like it even more.! Anyways it's thoughts like that...that are getting me through this spring and summer. Have a good Monday everyone!

and ETA @Cm3-I just read about you feeling bad about reprimanding your dogs.lol I do the same thing and will feel sooo guilty it makes me want to go home and baby them even more when I read your post! don't feel bad...I have always read that dogs want to let their owners take control over them..I don't know If I agree with that though. My pookie was the most strong willed dog I have ever had and looked at me the same way when I got on to her
It is hard to discipline especially if a furkid is strong willed. I never think of myself as their owner, just their mommy or caretaker if you will xoxoxo

I'm sure you've seen wrap dresses. you are so tiny & would look great in anything! they say wrap dresses flatter all body shapes. I'm not 1 for dresses either but if I were, I think I would try that. As Snowflake mentioned, i think those stores would be great places to look. Good luck doll!

Snowflake, how's your back now? sure hope you're feeling better.

CAH & Tex, i read on FB that you both are under the weather 7 I hope y'all feel better very soon.

how's everyone doin? we are all fine here in South Cackalakee!
hubby & I went Saturday to a biker church fish fry & bake sale. we brought the plates home. the food was delicious. Haven't had fish that good in a long time. we bought a red velvet cake & it is very good also. only thing is, it's full of toothpicks! I guess the baker used them to hold the layers together. I think it should have come w/ a warning, lol.

we watched "The Bible" last night. I thought it was very good. did anyone else here watch it? if so, what did you think?

have any of you seen the advertisement for "Myrtle Manor?" I think it's on TLC. didn't know until this a.m. that it's filmed in Myrtle Beach, S.C. it's, yet another, reality show! takes place in a trailer park, yes, a trailer park! a friend of mine on FB said she wishes she could get back the 1/2 hour it took to watch it. lol, I still think I would like to see it 1x.
nothing planned for today but cutting coupons & searching for some deals. I hope each of you have a fabulous day!
Thanks MM !!! Awww... you are so kind in your comments about me, thanks. I will try those stores definitely ! I wanted to see The Bible... is that the new series on the Bible ?? I saw something about a show on it that is supposed to be like reality TV or something ?? xo

(((HUGS)) to you !! xo

If you find a nice skirt and blouse that you like, I'm sure that would be fine, too.

Thanks Merry !!! Gosh, I never realized how much I love my jeans and tops until I had to start shopping for a dress...eeeyuck...xoxo

Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

It's been a cold weekend, and it's still cold today, but we should be in the low 70's by next weekend. I get to ride in the Rattlesnake and Wildlife Festival parade this Saturday, representing the City of Bellville. That's always fun. None of the council members ever want to join me, so Bernie rides with me, since he's Bellville's most famous resident. My son usually rides, too, but he's working at the festival this year.

My family is finally back form the weekend mission trip. Jacob has a bad cold as a result of working in the cold, but he'll be ok. I'm just glad they're home!

I hope y'all have a great day!

After I corrected her, she looked at me with this awful sad and drooping look as if to say ..."What did I do mommy ?" I didn't hit her or anything but I have found that as a hound she likes to challenge authority (MY kind of GIRL !) so you have to be pretty stern.
I would be concerned if you never corrected her, anyone who loves their pet knows if you want them to be well trained you have to discipline and correct from time to time.
She will get over it and so will you! Keep up the loving!!!
