Good Morning Lovelies... I'm back from the semi dead... If anyone asked me "what animal do you think you are?" I could honestly answer "dog"... my dog has bitten me so many times we're practically related.....his injuries from the fight FAR outweigh mine... (if you look you can see my gross hand) We went to the vet on Saturday and he got stitches and staples all up and through... I'm telling you.. he is his own worse enemy.... so the vet is all,"He'll be asleep for most of the day and night".. NOT... hes like the Hulk... he slept for like a half an hour!!! But I'll tell you... he is shellshocked... thats for sure... Brady is a bit of a diva.. he never slept in a crate, only the bed.. whenever you would try to put him in a crate he would have like a panic attack and start sweating... my other two.. LOVE their crates.. its like their crib.... so this morning.. I go into my room after my shower to see this...... Brady in Cooper's crate... this is a FIRST!!!! I think he was too scared to jump on the bed for fear of hurting himself.... but hes tough.. .he'll get through it.. some advice the vet gave me for future rumbles... he has to wear a harness... that way if he does fight, he can be pulled up and pulled at a place that isn't near his mouth...also, no bones for Colby... they are too tempting for all dogs... if you've ever seen or witnessed a dog fight, it is seriously the mosthorrifying, frightening thing you can experience...the vet said it can't be prevented and it can't be cured... I'm hoping it stays in Brady's memory for a while... but now we heal... we heal.. we start over... hopefully smarter!!!

Girrrrrrrrrrrllllllllllllll.. this horrible month NEEDS to end.... February has been nothing but a big headache.... it has snowed so bad I'm afraid of backing out of my driveway... we have had indoor recess every day of February... my big mirror broke rendering it impossible to take my selfies... I got a ticket.... my dogs got into a huge fight.... I got bitten.. and had to have a tetanus shot...my poor Brady ( who started the fight and bit me) is in bad shape.... you are talking about an SUV vs. a toyota.... I talked to the vet about it and she said it can't be prevented or cured... she suggested putting him on Prozac which I FULLY support as well as a drip of phenylbarbitol....(thats what Judy Garland used to take.. the GOOD STUFF) so the vet said to keep them separated... and the bill for all of this? 783.00......I blame February... it has not been a month of love... it has been anything else.... ONE bright spot... I found this great lamp at Salvation Army... how cute is this lamp?? For 6.00... brightened my day a little....

I need to start this post with I have always LOVED Valentines Day... I really have... I know some people think its a Hallmark holiday...I am NOT one of those people... but this year... this year has been so hard for me to see the love... I always make my husband celebrate Valentines and hes not here.... so I am going out with my son... that isn't bad.. I"m grateful for him.... but the entire month of February has been honestly a nightmare of stress.... my district is in crisis... I am running for union rep or secretary, I haven't decided yet... I still have a mountain of snow in my driveway, and my husband's return to Illinois? hmmmm... good question..... to put a cherry on this great month so far... today I got a ticket!!! in the game of " you think your life is bad?" I'm winning.....Happy Valentines Day my friends!!!! I DO love all of you for stopping by and listening to my rants... this blog is my very special valentine!!!!

The time I left and the temperature outside!!! I know I love snow as much as the next guy.. but winter... I need a BREAK!!!! The snow is so deep and so cold it is making all of us despondent.....As much as I love sitting in front of the fireplace when its a cold night, I HATE fearing my driveway every morning of the snow piles that my car gets stuck in... On top of all that... I cannot seem to get my outfits together this week... maybe I subconsciously picked this because its love for Valentines Day... but really its warm.... Have a lovely day my friends!!!! Stay warm!!!

Did you ever have a day that just started WRONG and then got worse?? Thats how this day has gone.... Fridays are nice because we don't have to be at school until 8:55 so I can usually stop and get Starbucks.... so as I'm leaving today I hear screaming outside...I go outside and of course its Casey accidentally hit someone in a MINOR accident... (we're talking not even a fender bender) so it turns out shes got some kind of license issue...(this gal's 19 so.........yeah) but I have to go to work... so I leave her... police are involved... a mess!!!!!!!!!!and I am completely alone dealing with all of this.. as is she.. because I can't take the day off to help her with notice... so I'm bad mom of the year award winner for leaving her and she is at the police station..... I don't know what to do...... I can't do anything until school's over...UGGGGGGGGGHhhhhhhhh!!!!! details to follow!!!!
