Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

So yesterday started out not so good. I rarely have bad days (the ones where everything goes wrong) but yesterday was trying my patience.

I clocked out from work and then got a phone regarding a situation that I can not discuss but will just add some more time to another shift one day. That stressed me out until I realized it really was not that big of a deal. So I head home and realize my BIL told me tire was low and I stopped off to get some air in the tire. The air thing at the gas station just started and I had the hardest time connecting it to the tire (ugh). I get home and I smell gas but Im in a hurry and I just ignore it. Autumn is waiting for and she is just too sweet. I leave her out of the kennel while I get dressed and she does well. I have to be at Bible Study in 30 minutes.

I put her in the kennel (I have to literally push her rear end in) and walk outside. The gas company is outside and says they want to turn off our gas because we have not paid. Dude, I am in a hurry, can you come back? I did not say that but I did think it. So after calling Michael, we figure out the problem and I tell him about the smell. He says why didn't you call the gas leak line? Huh? I'm still in a hurry but he wants to come check on things anyway. So the dog is whining in the kennel, dude is looking around and the house is dirty. He finds the problem. The stove. It has a leak and its really old( probably was installed when the house was built). So now we have to get a new stove. Ugh!

I have to decide if I want to go to Bible Study and WW since I am already late and I despise being late. I went. I'm glad I did. I had fun. We reviewed Daniel and got ready for Hosea. i then met my friend at WW and tried to get out of being weight since I have not been on program all week. Thing all you can eat shrimp at Red Lobsters x2, cracker barrel, ben and jerrys, pumpkin latte at Starbucks (no, not at one time). I just figured what the heck. Check this out. I still lost 1.2 pounds. I am motivated again. I also ran into an old friend we knew at an old trivia location and I look forward to seeing her on Wednesdays.

My day started turning around. After WW and lunch ( chicken fajitas, corn tortillas, no cheese, sour cream or guac) I headed home to play with Autumn. We played and took a long nap on the couch until Michael came home.

We played trivia and I had my last yucky ( but oh so yummy) meal of the week. Now I am back on track and have already been to they gym and am having my water. Check this out. I left Autumn out of her kennel while I was at the gym and she did fabulous.

There are some wonderful pics over on the adoption blog and Michael still needs 18 people to donate 5$ to his JDRF fund by Saturday. Head over to his blog for the link and to help!

Now, we are watching Enchanted and blogging. Rock on!

My day started out a little crazy yesterday too. I thought I lost a glasses are too weak to wear for real. I was subbing at S.G.'s school, it was raining cats and dogs...which we are in a horrible drought, and it hasn't rained like this in ages. We have to open two gates to get out, which D.S. had to get up and open for us... Anyway, the rest of the day was fine. I'm glad the rest of your day was fine. Great job on the weight loss. I just got off of the treadmill...after eating two delicious donuts this morning.

There are days like that - pushing through and going to the meetings probably felt good. I sometimes have to make myself continue when things get bad, I can easily get into a funk over it all.

I know when we first had Oliver he had to be blocked in our kitchen as he wasn't potty trained and then because he would get into mischief. He no longer does that and I'm happy he can have the run of the house. He's actually quite lazy during the day. He knows weekday mornings from weekend ones and he snuggles into his kennel on his own sometimes...too cute!

Forget everything that is petty... that gas leak... well, just say that you had your dog in her kennel and the gas leaking like crazy and she is in the house with it... I say go out and buy the new stove... lucky I know you to get away with reading you the riot act... hehehehehe
