Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Psalm 84:3

Got Gas?

Okay I have never gone to Sam's/BJ's/Costcos alone NEVER. This would be why.... Nick and I go to pick up a Christmas present for my mom and as we were leaving a notice the gas is only $3.07 (this is a hot price in South FL) so I go and read the pump. SCAN WHOLESALE CARD THEN CREDIT CARD FOR WHOLESALE PRICE. So I simply slip the BJ card into the credit card slot? Right?! It says card unreadable. What? There is nothing wrong with my card I just just it in the store. So again I slip it into the credit card slot.... Okay see where I am going. Well since the gas is only $3.07 there is a ton of people waiting, and here I am looking around like a dumbass. I clean off the card and go to try it again and this hundred year old man jumps out of his car and says "you have to scan it!" (the card has a barcode on it not a magnitic strip) So as shock and stupidity flashes on my face I see the scanner next to the credit card slot. I truelly wonder why I leave the house alone!

The Dog ate my Homework

Wednesday, November 21, 2007
Charlie Brown our naughty naughty 12lbs puppy gets into everything. He sleeps in our master bathroom since he has plenty of room to run around while the rest of the family sleeps. Sal likes to use the master potty since Kelli has moved in, so one night while we were sleeping except for Charlie, Sal went into the bathroom and opened the separate door for the potty, did his thing and sleeply went back to bed. Well since having 4 kids I also use the master potty to hide from the kids and often bring in the current library book I am reading. During the night I hear Charlie banging something around in the bathroom, so I get up and open the door to see Charlie has eaten the book! Not just the cover the whole book. ARGGGGG Why do I have a dog???? At 30 years old I had to drag myself to the library and explain that our puppy ate the book. I don't believe in all my years I have had to use The Dog ate my Homework excuse and it to be true. I guess I will be asking Santa for books this year because I can't show my face at the library for awhile! This is the start of Charlie living with my dad!

Head Over Heals

Sunday, November 4, 2007
My Sal.... After a long wait Kelli was placed in our home for the first time. With a fun filled day, we thought a nap would be best for everyone. With everyone in their rooms Ed and I worked on our adoption announcements unknown to us Sal fell out of his bunkbed! Sal layed on the ground moaning and Nick woke up to call for us. We ran into the room to find Sal eyes shut and only moaning unable to respond to us. We picked him up and saw a bump on his temple and Nick saying Sal fell down from bed! We had to call 911 and all St Lucie Fire and Medics showed up. Sal's eyes were half open, still unresponsive. They were looking into his eyes to see if he had a concusion, they desided it was best to take him to the hospital. 5 hours later after xrays and CAT scans Sal is home with a mild-concusion and short term memory loss. I think I have a new set of gray hairs.

The Great Paper Chase

Thursday, November 01, 2007
Well it is November 1st and still no Kelli, We have been waiting for California to approve us as Kelli's new family. Hopefully we will hear by Monday when she will be able to fly out and join us for good. Her current family calls everyday to say they are looking forward to the trip to FL and to help Kelli settle in. The boys have been going crazy with the wait and don't understand what is taking so long, I don't either.....
