Life...as I know it....

Good Morning Company Girls!

Sometimes when I write that I hear that comedian, whose name has left my memory banks at the moment declaring 'good morning Vietnam!'.....just a thot....

Well, here in Canada this weekend, it's a holiday weekend! Yay for three day weekends...not that we're going anywhere....we don't have the money to put the dogs in the kennel. Sometimes, I will admit that it's a pain in the butt...or rather the wallet,...to have dogs....kennel costs are exorbitant! I could go to the trailer on my own, of course, with my kids....not sure I want to do that with Emma , although she does seem to pick up unsavouries wherever she goes! When we came home from the trailer a couple of weeks ago, she went for a loooong walk and met a new friend! Now, before one gets to excited about a new friend, you have to know Emma....put Emma into a room just packed with teens and Emma will zoom in on the grodiest ones and act like they're THE most wonderful new friends in the whole world. I have learned to be skeptical . So,.....now she has a new friend....they have become fast and furious very quickly...already she has slept over twice...and when she goes to her house she's there for hours and hours....having fun, when I ask....my skeptical brain..always on high alert when it comes to Emma...just has to think....What the Pete are they finding that's so much fun...I think the worst and justifiably so......part of me cares, part of me wants to go there and see what they are doing....the other part is relieved that she's out of the house for a few hours...and if she's drinking, smoking and drugging...then so be it.....I've fought the battle long enough.....sounds horrible doesn't it....to hear a mom admit that...but I'm weary....

So, Ben did well with his minor surgery this week and so that just leaves Megan getting her braces off next Wednesday and baby wett being born.....no..that's not a typo...our last name starts with the letters Wett so it's just easier to shorten it to this for this circumstance. Other than that...I have nothing planned....no more appointments....yeah!

Last weekend we celebrated megan's sixteenth birthday....I jokingly asked her how it felt...she said, in all seriousness...that it felt different....okay, I didn't even pursue that answer.....Paul's girlfriend came and got our video camera to tape Paul's grad from artillery training on the 12th of august. Looking forward to seeing that tape!

Hoping to get some cleanup done around the house this weekend...it should be a quiet one.....hopefully....unless grand baby decides he wants out....or Emma decides to go for another long walk......good grief....

Have a good one ladies!

Oh dear. I do like the part about the quiet weekend though. =p God is in control.

Hugs for you, and prayers for God to get hold of Emma's heart in a big way. A quiet weekend sounds like a much needed respite.

Hello!
I am so glad to catch up with you. It seems ages since I could! I somehow forget that you are in Canada, must remember when I am in that region again! I hope your long weekend does have some holiday element to it at home, I think the staycations are the best for me!
hugs!
Sweetie
