What Day Of The Week Is It?

I've lost track of days. Well, as I mentioned before I switched meds and the problems I was having with it have pretty much gone away. I am however, experiencing killer heartburn....WHY? Food still does not taste right but I think I am hungry. I was planning to go back to work tomorrow. Now I am thinking I may just work a half day. I don't think I am ready for a full day. But, I have been getting a lot of phone calls. You can't imagine the stuff that can happen in a week with the families I work with.

Last night Jake and I watched "Freedom Writers". I LOVED it. I can't even tell you how much I loved it. I cried. Of course, I have been exceptionally emotional these days. I think it was that crazy antibiotic. I was supposed to go to Women of Faith this past weekend but for obvious reasons I missed it. The ladies I was going to be going with bought me a book by Patsy Clairmont called "I Second That Emotion...Untangling Our Zany Feelings". Guess what!? When I opened it I cried. I guess I really needed it. LOL. Anyhoo...back to the movie. I feel very inspired by the movie. I've seen other movies like that where a teacher/coach take an impossible class/team and somehow empower/discipline them enough to succeed. I love that kind of stuff.

Okay, now I want to tell you a funny story my Mom told me that happened this week....

My Mom & Dad had some visitors at their house that wanted to see the garden. So, my Mom, Jude, Elise and the guests go out to the garden. When they get out there they see two deer. Well, Jude and Elise were all excited. Jude said, "I am going to go tell Poppy". So, he goes inside to get my Dad to see the deer. My Dad comes out and Elise says, "Poppy, look there are two deer out here." My Dad says, "I see them." Elise says, "Get your gun and shoot them." My Dad said, "No, we aren't going to shoot them." Elise insisted, "Yes, Poppy shoot them so we can eat them for dinner!" I am pretty sure that is not what everyone was expecting from our "city" kids. BTW...Jude added his advice to Poppy - he said, "Poppy there is two of them so I am sure you can hit at least one of them!" That just cracks me up. Oh, the cute little things that kids say!

You guys really need to move south!
You are depriving your children of some wonderful experiences. I'll even give you some of your parents land...oops, I forgot I'm not your mom's boss any longer she had a birthday, now I'm not the oldest. Every year I get to boss her for one month and 18 days! :)
