I'm in SUCH a grumpy mood right now. First, Lucy, who I've taken out about 5 times tonight, decided she wanted to go out as soon as I sat down to eat my supper (I think she does that on purpose). I took her out and she did NOTHING. And it is pouring down rain.
THEN I came in to sync my ipod and I can't connect to itunes. It keeps telling me my password is wrong and I know for a fact that it's the right password. Stupid itunes....
THEN since Marshall had to do this job we have to go get Brooke tomorrow. We're excited about that, but we have to drive down there and back tomorrow. It's a five-hour trip one way. We're getting up at 5 in the morning, we'll be there around 11 if you figure in stopping for breakfast. We'll go get a U-Haul trailer once we get there, drive to her apartment and load everything up, then hit the road coming back home. I told Marshall that if I died from a blood clot from sitting in the truck for that many hours that I was going to be VERY upset with him. He didn't seem too concerned.
Ok, I'm done whining. Oh, one more thing: it's supposed to be pouring down rain tomorrow and I'd LOVE to stay home and enjoy that, but no no...
See the CD above? That CD is filled with prayers and inspiring scriptures from the Bible, read by a wonderful woman named Elaine Sampson. Elaine found the bleeding heart photo on my flickr site and contacted me asking me if she could use the photo for this project. I happily agreed to let her use it, and was extremely flattered that she liked the photo so much. Elaine is battling late stage breast cancer and is a true inspiration. You can visit her website at http://www.into-my-heart.com. She graciously sent me a few copies of the CD, which was totally unexpected. I was very happy to have received them. :)
I forgot to mention in yesterday's post that when I got home from shopping my laptop was back from being repaired! Yay! I was extremely impressed with how quick they replaced the screen (for that ONE bad pixel) and got it back to me. Thank you, HP.
I have a reoccurring dream where me, Marshall, and the kids have moved back to our house in Jackson, Mississippi. I had the dream last night. When I'm dreaming that particular dream I always feel this immense and overwhelming feeling of loneliness.
I was miserable down there, just absolutely miserable. We knew NO ONE outside of Marshall's three co-workers and the families of our next door neighbors (whom we loved). Ugh, I hate having that dream. However, there IS one bright spot, and that is that every time we go back there, our Doberman, Danda, is still alive, still there, and is always at the back patio door, looking in, as if she's been there all along waiting on us. :)
Today would've been her 21st birthday--if dogs lived that long. :) We were blessed to have had her for 12 years and she was the best dog EVER. She was terrific with the kids and they loved her dearly, as did Marshall and I. Isn't she beautiful? We sure thought so. :(....
This song makes me happy. Have a good night.
