Just My Thoughts For Today

I don't know what I want to blog about today. I guess I am having an emotional day, started my period. Not feeling that great.

I am happy to be home. I work weekends in Snohomish, that is a long way away from Port Orchard. I drive 117 miles one way. I stay Saturday nights at my parents house. I really like that I get to see them weekly, but on the other hand I really, really, REALLY miss Hannah and Eric. Got home last night.

Yesterday while I was at work Eric and Hannah came up to have dinner with me and the couple I take care of. They loved meeting both Hannah and Eric (but, not so secretly, they really were looking forward to Hannah. Eric was just a bonus LOL). We had dinner and Hannah entertained us before dessert with some singing. That kid is an entertainer and feels totally comfortable in the spot light. Not my personality at all LOL.

She sang "Row, Row, Row Your Boat", "Rock-A-By-Baby", and something else which i cannot recall right now. Char and Leo were enthralled with her. As everyone is really LOL. Leo, the man I was hired to take care of, really took a liking to her. I really saw a side of him I have never seen before. He was completely engaged in what she was saying and doing, and everything Hannah did he told her what a big girl she was and was so encouraging. I remember thinking that his children were very blessed to have a Daddy like Leo. :)

Now I am home today, woke up with my period, and have not felt so great. Ugh I am looking forward to PMS going away. I think I should feel normal again by tomorrow. And by my calculations I should be ovulating around June 7th...... *wink*

I am having dinner for Grandpa Bodeutsch and some friends tomorrow. I am trying to figure out what I should cook for dinner. Eric's idea was chicken on the grill. I don't care for that idea though...LOL so far all his suggestions sound not so great. If I am not careful though he'll stop trying to help cause I keep saying "no" to all his ideas.

That's all for now.

Glad to see you posting again. I can't believe your daughter is 27 months old already.

How did your dogs adapt to the new addition? Are you still training?

About a year ago, my daughter and her fiance adopted a hound mix from the shelter. They are her fifth family. Boy did she need a lot of work, but she is doing so much better now. She also was recently diagnosed with low thyroid, though she did not have all the classic symptoms. We can tell that the thyroid meds are helping too.

Just wanted to say hi.

Hi Lesa,

Thanks so much for your comments. :) nice to see you here again as well.

Time sure has flown by.. As for the dogs adjusting to her. Hmmm well that has taken some work and time. I was very close to re-homing my German shepherd. Close enough that I had a home lined up for him already. But that very week he started acting more relaxed around the baby and we continue to work on that.

Foenix, my shepherd, is doing better all the time. Though, from experience, he'll never be a "kids dog" kind of personality, he at least accepts her and that is a huge step in the right dirction.

Good for your daughter to keep the dog and work with her. Those adoption dogs can be really a chore but also once you work with them its a huge reward. :)
