On a more interesting news I finally have a kitchen in the old shop, I got a range on Tuesday and running water to my sink and dishwasher yesterday. It is so nice to have all the parts for the kitchen in place now. Thank you Lord.
I have a 7 yr old little girl living with me for a while, she came on the 13th she will be with me until the end of next month. She will be moving on to a very good home, I was really encouraged when I talked to the new foster mom to be, she is willing to commit to this funny little girl.

Brogan is already fascinated with motorized vehicles. This baby boy has been such a blessing to me and my family, I am so thankful that my brother Ryan and Genna share him with me. I am so honored that they trust me to care for him. I will be able to have such an impact on him, way cool.

Spring break and respite care must go hand in hand, I have know since Christmas that I would have the extra 17 year old, not a problem. Today my certifier called and asked if I would keep a 6 year old little boy. I told him what I have going on at my house and told him if he did not mind then I would keep him. He had no problem with it and gave my number to the foster mother. She called and this boy is coming tomorrow and staying through Friday or Saturday. I think after this week is over I will need respite care for myself. I pray that I can make it.
Last Friday evening I have the wonderful opportunity to witness another home birth. A beautiful baby boy was born to a nice christan family. I am so amazed at woman-mothers, God built the woman's body with such capabilities. It only told this mother about 3o minutes to push her baby out, AMAZING. He is healthy and much loved by his 2 older sister, mom and dad. The father was so cute after the birth and the fact that it was a boy, he was on cloud 12 at least. He got to call and share the exciting news with his family and friends. Thank you Lord for babies.

Another way is that I really want our property to sell soon. I have had a few people come and look at it but no one has made an offer yet. I just keep praying that it will be soon, in Gods time.
Also spring break starts today. I will have an extra 17 year old around for the week also, she has stayed with me twice before, so my kids are looking forward to her coming to visit, that makes it nice. I really need make a list of everything I want and need to get done so that I might be kept on track. But for those of you that know me you know it takes an act of God to keep me on track.
One a total different topic, the cops in the town I live in have been having big problems we have had 2 different ones get arrested in the last 2 months. One for theft and the latest one for contributing to a minor, duh. What is this world coming to? As a society we have left God out of things and look what happens. Lord forgive us.

I was showing Carly my post from yesterday and she started making fun of my grammer skills or lack there of, so I had to go back and fix the numerous problems. As I sit here typing this post she is reading over my shoulder and checking my mistakes and laughing like crazy. Just the other night Carly and I were up having a conversation about the school year perhaps going to year round school. She asked if I know why they had summer break and I told her that it was because, years ago the kids were needed to help on the farm. She was SO AMAZED that I knew this, I asked her if she thought I was completely dumb. She Is so amazed that I am actually quite an intelligent individual, I just can't spell. We are having a bonding moment right now trying to get this post right, really we are about to pee our pants. Well at least I am good for something..............comic relief. I am going to beat this teenager (with a wet noodle). No seriously beat her.
Well the answer is 3, 2-17 year olds and me.

I got home for the birth at 5:30 am, the woman that is living with me was still up when I got home, surprised me. My nephew was here and Carly brought him down about 6 am so he and I slept in the chair till about 9 am then I have to get ready to go to Coos Bay to help Stacey at the Bridal Fair. I was to stay at the fair while she was at the shop helping customers. I was so tired after being up almost all night. Well I got home from Coos Bay at 8 pm, long day. I came home to a teething Brogan, he was not a happy camper, poor little guy. He was fussy and so Saturday night I did not get much sleep either. I was wake up Sunday morning and then said don't wake me up again, so my kids got ready for church with out me. I am so proud that my kids were going to go with out me. I did get up and drive them so they did not have to walk the mile in the rain. I did get Brogan to sleep and he stayed home with Mel and I went to the potluck after church. Slacker I know, but boy I was tired. Brogan cut a top tooth, he now has three. He is growing up so fast. I am so grateful to be such a big part of his life. This summer will be fun with a toddler around.
This is only part of the craziness of last weekend. I am glad it is over and I did survive.

The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, sent the e-mail.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack. The widow decide to check her e-mail expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message she screamed and fainted.
The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, saw the computer screen which read:
TO: my loving wife
Date: April 13,2007
I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I’ve arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forwarded to seeing you then! Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
Your Loving Husband
P.S. It sure is freaking hot down here.

I will blog about the journey that brought both kids to me, soon I have just been really busy lately. I hope to be back at my place by spring break, the end of March, we will see.

An English lady, while visiting Switzerland, was looking for a room and asked a local schoolmaster if he could recommend one. He took her to several rooms, and when everything was settled, she returned home to make final arrangements for moving. When she arrived home, the thought occurred to her that she had not seen a W.C. (water closet or bathroom) around the place. She immediately wrote to the schoolmaster asking him where the W.C. was. The schoolmaster didn’t know the meaning of “W.C.”. so with a priest’s assistance, he came to the conclusion that it meant “wayside chapel” (a small building beside the road where travelers could rest or pray). He sent a letter back to the English lady, which read as follows:
I take great pleasure in informing you that the nearest W.C. is situated only nine miles from the house in a beautiful grove of trees. It is capable of holding 32 people. It is open only on Mondays and Thursdays.
There are a great number of people expected during the summer months, so I would suggest that you come early, although there is usually plenty of standing room.
This is an unfortunate situation. Especially if you are in the habit of going regularly.
You will, no doubt, be glad to hear that a number of people bring there lunch and make a day of it, while others who can’t afford it, arrive just in time. I would recommend Thursdays because, on that day, there is an organ accompanist. The slightest sound can be heard anywhere.
It may interest you to know that my daughter met her husband in the W.C., and they were married there.
I can still vividly remember the rush for seats. Seven people crowded into seats for four. It was wonderful to see the expressions on there faces.
Unfortunately, my wife is rather delicate, so she has not attended in over a year. Naturally, it pains her very much not to be able to go more often. I shall be delighted to reserve a seat for you if you wish,
Where you can be seen by all.
Hoping to be of assistance, I am.
We had 4 people from church over for tacos, the kids ate and then went for a hike which left me able to really get to visit with my company which was so nice. The kids hiked for a hour all the way to my moms house they have walked to grandmas house 3 times now. This was there fastest trip so far. While the kids were hiking Brogan hook his nap, such a nice afternoon. Thank you Lord I really needed it. We are now sitting watching Ice truckers and enjoy the warm house and each other.
