True Friendship -- None of that Sissy stuff.
Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems that always sound good,
But never actually come close to reality?
Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship.
You will see no cute little smiley faces on this card -- Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.
1. When you are sad -- I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against the sorry barstard who made you sad.
2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
3. When you smile -- I will know you are thinking of something that I would probably want to be involved in.
4. When you are scared -- I will rag you about it every chance I get until you're NOT.
5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining.
6. When you are confused -- I will try to use only little words.
7. When you are sick -- Stay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.
8. When you fall -- I will laugh at your clumsy ass, but I'll help you up.
9. This is my oath.... I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask;
because you are my friend.
Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth.

Goals for next week: Pilate's workout 3 or 4 days.
Start keeping a pitcher of water in the fridge, once again.... I find it a lot easier to drink water if I have a pitcher of cold water and lemon juice to add to it...I have never liked the taste of water but with a squirt of lemon, I have no problem drinking it....but don't put a lemon in my sweet tea please!!
Ok check back next Thursday for another update of TTFT!!

Our oldest, D, turns 15 tomorrow. Now Big Daddy looks old enough to have a 15yr old but I am quite positive I do not!!! But when I see the above picture, I know my wrinkles are just around the corner. I have been letting D drive my van around the church parking lot for practice since he is itching to get his learners permit. And before you ask, yes I make sure the parking lot is empty first. I taught my BFF's 2 oldest kids to drive of which I am grateful, it is making it easier to deal with mine. I love having him drive the van. Cause we all know how cool 15yr olds look driving Mom's mini-van, LOL!!!! He'll look cooler at 16 I'm sure when he can drive it without me........ man I still can't believe it's been 15 yrs that I've been a Mom....you would think I would be better at it by now!!!!
Happy Birthday D..... Love Ya...... Or I wouldn't be letting ya drive my van!!!!!

My friend Sandy from The Adams Family tagged me today. I am to go to my first picture file and post number 10. Now I love these tags...well any tag that has anything to do with pictures is good for me!
This one is quite appropriate! This was on D's first summer choir tour and since he just got back from his 6th tour it's fun to look back at the 1st. And I don't know who had my camera cause that is D in the front seat!! This is just outside of Atlanta. And boy....look at all the fun they're having on that bus, LOL!! Feel free to do this one yourself!!
Ok now on to my favorite subject, my weight! I did not work out once this past week so yes, the DVD is still safely in it's plastic wrapper! Now I have been up and out, as in outside, more then normal. Which is good except my face burns off each time I do it! And now for the big number....... 170, yes down another pound and I have no idea how I did it!!!!!
One more thing and this is really random. I always pay attention to word verification when I leave comments. Now I don't even know if I use word verification so somebody tell me. But I do this little thing of seeing if the WV I get makes word. Now I have come across a few and one or two were pretty good but yesterday I came across my all time favorite....HOMAKE....yeah, so does that mean I am a HO-make or I make-HO!!!! I just LOVE the possibilities.....I know, I'm whacked!

This is Cassie. She is a Balinese I rescued along with her sister Cate. I don't know what she was looking at. C has officially declared Cassie HIS cat!
This is Cate, Cassie's twin. She is amazing with The Girl. Lets her carry her draped over her arms. And Girl takes her everywhere!! Cate is HER cat!
This is Sammie. She is a torte Siamese I adopted from a rescue group 10 yrs ago. I love this cat and this cat loves me! My hubby does NOT love this cat and she does NOT love him!! She is not a lap cat and she is only just now coming around to letting others touch her. Before now, it's only been me.
Cate and Cassie, bonding.
And of course Annabelle in her crate. Girl has now declared Anna to be her dog, yeah right! I love those ears!! She is afraid of the cats until she gets in her crate....then she's all dog vs cat!!
I still find it so hard to know that she spent the first 6 months of her life out on the streets! So glad the Tn Rescue Group were able to get her and her brother.
Lizzy, W's dog, part Golden Retreiver part chow we think. She is big, goofy and will follow those kids to the end of the earth!! This is the only one we've not gotten from rescue or the humane society. We got her from a friend when I was expecting Girl. Maybe that's why she's so kid attached....
And of course Oliver! I adopted him from the humane society 12 yrs ago. He is the only male and is totally alpha. I call it small dog syndrome!! He is D's although as he gets older, he comes to me for just about everything...including tucking into bed at night... yea, my bed! It is cute when I wake up in the morning and he's on Big Daddys pillow!! But I don't think Big Daddy see's the humor in that, LOL!!
So there is the intro to the other kids. The cats are a little off balance, we only have 3. My 18 yr old tabby died last month....I'm ready to get my numbers even again.......hmmmm is Big Daddy??

Try to picture the worst case of poison ivy combined with sun poisoning, big blisters oozing nastiness and paste them in your mind on the left side of my face, in my ear and in my mouth. Oh yeah, are you getting the picture?? They started in my ear weekend before last, traveled down my jaw line to my teeth. And that was just the pain. The breakout started last Tuesday. I went to the doc and got prednisone and Valtrex my new buddy. The valtrex kept it from going hog wild on my face. Now as bad as I looked and I could have been in Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video without makeup, the pain was excruciating. I've broken my femur, had 2 kids natural, sprain my ankle twice bad enough the docs thought it was broken, acute appendicitis, but nothing compares to this. By this past weekend, I did not know if me or the pain was going to win. I was taking 2 percocets every 4 hours just to sleep, the pain never left. And I finally understood how people overdose on perscription meds. I was just desperate for it to stop. I do not remember being so scared at any other time like that.
Big Daddy took care of the kids the whole weekend meaning he kept them out of the house and out of my bedroom. I must have been bad cause he didn't do that when I got home from the hospital! I went back to the doc on Monday and went to the ENT that afternoon. Luckily he doesn't feel there will be permanent hearing loss. He vacuumed out my ear and then tested to see how much hearing I had. I am on a different pain med that so far has not impressed me.
My blisters are healing and now I have black scabs instead. I still will not go out of my house unless it is to the Doc or pharmacy. And don't worry, after computer is fixed, I plan to have a "Gross Out" Friday Foto Finish just for FUN!!
