ole’!

(if that thing is still going on where the title doesn’t show up…. yeah. sorry. i’m trying to fix it and it’s not working out yet.)

Caden-9yr has found a new way to liven up his existence. He stands at the back door, commands a brother to LET EM IN, and then when the excited dogs come running in the house, caden-9yr runs in front of them, arms flailing and screaming and leading the dogs through the house on a crazy weird takeoff of the Running of the Bulls.

I don’t know why he does it. It grates on my nerves. But I don’t think that’s why.

One of the problems with this idea is that the necessary energy and child faux hysteria actually causes the dogs to run like wild and crazy bulls and knock down all mom types and anything else in their way. They play their part well, these dogs. It’s GOT to stop.

Just had a weird text conversation with my dad and stepmom. Daddy said that some lady in the news who may be a murderer is probably someone I went to school with. I looked up the black and white image from a store’s video surveillance and then wrote back and said, No… she’s younger.

daddy said, “probably older. not as pretty.”

SHUT UP BUT THAT’S SO SWEEEEEET? When was the last time your Daddy complimented you in comparison to a would be murderer’s video surveillance image? OH MY GOSH, melted my heart, it really did. Kinda made my night, right there.

I didn’t recognize her. But then again, that’s not really my secret talent. And, as long as we’re discussing what secret talents we do NOT have, I think I should probably always avoid Pamplona.

I’d be so dead.

Your daddy knows how to reach a girl’s heart! Mine is in rehab after a bad fall; treasure yours while he is still young and healthy.
As for the running of the dogs–it lets them burn a lot of energy, but you are going to need a safe place while the madness ensues!

Kelsey, he broke a rib and needed stiches in his scalp, had a black eye, broke his glasses and his hearing aid. he is doing a little better physically, walking about 200 ft. with a walker, but is still very confused mentally. he knows who we are, but his conversations are very disconnected and repetitive. My mama stayed with him the first week, day and night, and ended up sick for several days and had to stay at my baby sister’s house. Now that he is out of hosp. and in rehab, she comes and stays a while (it’s on the same property as their cottage), goes home, eats, rests or naps, and then goes back. He’s 87, and we don’t know how things are going to go. Family meeting Wed. to ask questions, and find out what the long-term prognosis is. He wants to go home soooo bad. We spent most of the day with him thursday. Thanks for prayers. Sorry this was so long–I should have done an e-mail.
