HANGING TOUGH AT THIS END
Sorry folks.... I am still here... to bring you all up to date-the inmate that escaped was caught less then 48 hours later getting picked up by his girlfriend at a mall. Well that is all the excitement I think the prison can take..lol. It has been a rough bit of a weekend..like I told you all-one of our dogs had puppies...well this past weekend 3 pups died. We have no idea why-or what is going on with them. It broke my heart to hold them until their time was up. We tried everything-but nothing worked. It was a terrible thing to go through and we all were broken hearted- hopefully the last three will survive. Also big changes took place with my sister in law (who lives with us). Much to my shock and surprise-she showed up friday afternoon after a day of running around and handed me a month's mortgage payment. I could not believe it. She said she wanted to help and take a lil of the pressure off of us. (because we are two months behind). I could not believe it. I was SHOCKED. I am still shocked. I have no idea what got into her or why she was so generous but it was a great surprise coming from her. WOW- God really does work in mysterious ways. She also paid off her car, so that is a huge amount of pressure off of her. She even had money left over to get her car abit upgraded with some special lil things. I am really happy for her and it seems at least for now that she is trying to get herself together. So as you can see it has been a definite rollercoaster here at the old homestead. BTW**Lanny** thanks for worrying-it is nice to know that others care!!! Okay I guess this covers all the major news happening here- oh BTW I was thinking of starting a journal of inspirational poems, stories, quotes and such that are sent to me or that I find around.... I already run a newsletter like that but I thought I would make a journal of it...what do you all think? Okay... gotta go check on the pups..PEACE!!!!
