Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! I don't have too many pic's to post because I am pretty darn sick. I had a really rough night and when I got up this morning I could barely even get out of bed. I managed to get Lyza up and dressed for the "Harvest Party".....totally wanting to bawl my head off cause I couldn't stay there with her.....but I went to Urgent Care instead and had 103.5 fever right off the bat, they gave me something to get it down, but it did not work. They tested for strep, positive. They did a cbc panel and my white blood count was high and he thought maybe it was going into pneumonia. By the time I left the fever hadn't gone down and they talked about admitting me....and I politely talked them out of it. Though I still cannot go to work until Thursday......So I had to miss Lyza's "Harvest Party" and my own classes as well. I know several people took lots of photos for me....oh how I wanted to see my little ones all dressed up! to Target I went to get my meds, take back my costume that I was now not going to wear and am now home waiting on the "sleepy type" meds to kick in then I think I'll just sleep for a few days! Hope so anyway!

I think Lyza will be a ladybug for trick or treating tonight vs the Snow White she was today. I think her daddy is going to take her to the AutumnFest at our church.......which kills me too....I don't get to take her trick or treating! BOO HiSS!

Lyza's portrait from church this morning!
Slow, laid back weekend.......feeding ducks...sitting by the lake.....listening to them hiss at the dogs! Fun times. Hard to believe we had a day like this and where Madisyn is at she has 10" of snow and staying somewhere else cause they have no electric/heat!!! I'm not quite ready for that yet I don't think! Hope she has snow boots to trick or treat in! :-)

Guess who found their birthday present in the closet! The little sneak...oh how I wish she'd seen it at her party. "OOHHHH myyyyy GOOOSSSSHHHH Mom, a a fishing pole"! Too funny! I was really tired of seeing her try to fish with a stick in our lake! SO, my friend Kristie took her fishing last night and bottom pic shows what she got! Little Stinker. (It is blurry, Kristie said she couldn't get her to hold still while she took the pic!)

Just and FYI, do not buy character licensed poles, hers was barbie and is in the trash already. So I guess I will be going to look for a better one this week! Looks like Madisyn will also be getting for one for some great sister bonding time this summer and spring! :-))

A Daughter is........

I don't think there is anything further I need to say on this post. The middle photo sums it up beautifully!
As always.....thankful for my two beautiful Angels, and may you always know that your mama loves you more than you will ever know! How blessed I am!

So ya had a bad day.....

Yep....I had a horrible night and a horrible what did I do? I got a dog....yes, that is me...the spontaneous spirit who does things irrationally and without much thinking when I am having a really tough time! Do I regret it.... no, this pup is a keeper! I am actually just fostering him for the humane society with the option to adopt. They even brought him over to my house after work. They think "he"...which is now "Max" is about a year old, terrier mix. I had been wanting a scruffy dog forever and this one just happened to pop up! He has to be someones pet because he is super playful and knows so many commands and tricks. Lyza and I gave him a bath right away and tested his skills! I won't be surprised if I get a call that the owner has been found....but I will not be disappointed if they do not find the owner! He started to play with Macey and Smokey right away...and believe it or not the cat is more willing to share space and tolerance than Macey! Macey is only 4lbs and Max is 10 lbs and MACEY RULES! No doubt about it....she takes his bones, toys, anything he has along with that itty bitty growl! They are both laying at the foot of my bed...sleeping, but with heads in opposite directions so as not to breathe on each other! Macey wants to play, she just isn't so sure about a little dog I think...she has only been around my big dogs!

So, why the rotten day you might ask?? For obvious reasons that I won't state..... but then just a tough day on top of that.... Then my sleigh bed that took 6 weeks to get here finally got delivered was supposed to arrive and be assembled at 9:30 am..... they called and said they would bring it in the evening...then the guy called and was grumpy cause he had to deliver it (I paid for delivery and set up)...and when he got here at 6:30, he first broke my front door, then came ALONE to deliver that heavy bed (no, I wasn't helping...not throwing my back out and that is why I paid them!) to deliver that heavy cherry sleigh bed and I thought he was upstairs assembling it....and he snuck out the front door, I came upstairs and my mattress and boxsprings were laying up against my wall, bed still in boxes and the railings they had brought me gone......GRRRRR. Yes, I should have called for the old geiser to get his butt back over here and assemble it....but it was a fiasco the first time they delivered and this time and I just want them gone and not back in my house! I have a mattress and boxspring on the floor and a huge bed to put together...if there are any volunteers out there, feel free to come and put it together for me! If you are in Evansville, and see an ad in the paper for furniture that seems like a really good deal and private number...please bypass them! The furniture is good, but service was a load of crap and a bit shady I think!

My babygirl was tuckered out tonight, Max was in time out several times and even got told if he didn't straighten up he was going back to the lady! She played with him for a long time then snuck off to her room and I found her about 1/2 hr later comfortably snug in her bed sound asleep with Veggietales playing. Oh how I wish I could freeze time for her. What a jewel she is and what a lucky mother am I to have such beautiful daughters full of love and wonderful spirited hearts!

Lyza Faith....

Here are some of Lyza's darling doings for the week!
Tonight she wanted to practice trick or I gave her a piece of candy in her bucket and said "You are welcome precious"....she promptly informed me that I am supposed to say "Cool Costume Dude"! :-) I guess her pajamas were pretty cool tonight!
We have evergreen trees in our backyard by the lake....she insists there are coconuts hanging from it. I told her "Honey, those are too small to be coconuts"...she informed me "Mama...they are just baby coconuts" just so ya'll know, we now have coconuts growing in Indiana. She was pretty convincing!
TMI, but...she is notorious for clogging the toilet with too much toilet paper. This morning I sat down (her bathroom) and she yelled at me...."No Mama, you cannot use that toilet"...when I looked I asked her who did that and she immediatly said that "Madisyn did it"....always easy to blame the older sister who is not here.
Before bed she was looking at a picture frame on her nightstand of her and Madisyn. She asked me what it said on the frame and I told her "Sisters"....I said, is Madisyn your sister? She told me no...."Madisyn is not my sister, she is my best friend".... The girl can surely know how to make her mama cry! I miss my Madisyn, more than she will ever know. Countdown is month until both my girls are giggling from their rooms. It could not come any sooner...... I pray for the day that never have to post that I can't wait to hear her giggling from her room....that I can always be grateful to hear it every night. Mama's...hold your babies tight....even if they are 15!

Lazy Sunday!

What a beautiful day to be outdoors! Lyza and I sat outside by the lake, feeding the ducks...and then went and played basketball. She didn't last too long.....frustrated that she was to little to hit the basket. Maybe we'll have to work on a mini basketball goal for her birthday!

Thoughts by Misty...... :-)

How I feel today...... Just Sayin'! At some point you have to just start living your own life for YOU, not for what/how everyone else thinks you should!
I'm a good person.....don't get me wrong....but "Random Opinion of Others" about sums it up....and the rumor mill, gossip talk gets old....if ya want to know something, just ask! I'm pretty honest! :-)
