The year the cat and the skunk got into a fight in our basement. I was in second grade and it was the night before school photos. Woken up by my parents to the most horrible smell in the world...at least that is my thought. We left our house and went to one of my mom's friends houses....If I remember correctly.
The photo above is the the result of the spraying skunk. A not so great looking school photo. I also realize as I look at this photo, that I have no front teeth. In my mind I always thought the photo was much worse, looking at it now I think despite it all I still look pretty cute!
My husband for whatever strange reason is not bothered too much by the smell of skunk....and knowing I am whenever we pass by a smelly skunk place he takes a deep breath in, while I hold my breath for dear life. Ugh skunk smell ! He laughs and I remember the night of the skunk!

The Easters in New Jersey were almost as big as Christmas, ton's of eggs to find, toys, and lots of food to eat.
The brave Grandparents introducing young kids to the art of dying Easter Eggs...What great memories.

I now have a doctors appointment, because Peri-Menopause HATES me....I'm sure I'm growing some kind of ovarian cyst....I hope to find some other treatment than birth control pills because I HATE them...(thus the reason I'm in this state again, because I decided to stop taking them, let my prescription run out...and ignored that fact that I hadn't been to the OB/GYN in awhile... Can you blame me?? does anyone like to see them?? especially someone like me who always gets sent for ultra sounds and the violating wand thing...) ..my life is one of those where no day is exactly the same and taking medication at the same time is something I just can't figure out....
This is the biggest I want my family to be...and most likely that is how big it will stay...My husband well.. he I think would be all for a baby, I watch him at church just playing with every little child there is.. He even joked about us being like "Sarah and Abraham" in the bible having the late in life child. But to me another child is more work than I want ,sleepless nights, losing my identity again....I'm not the person I was 17 years ago, the young woman who wanted babies and wanted to stay home...I feel for those women who have what I have and want children because every missed period to them is the possibility of a bigger family...for me it is not that....Well what a way to bring in April fools day....My body out of balance and thinking "OH MY GOD I MIGHT BE PREGNANT....THANK YOU GOD THAT I'M NOT...... Did you fall off your chair at first...when I sent an e-mail to my mom she said she did.
Do you have any Peri-Menopause horror stories???
Have a great April Fools day!

My Garden in Spring.....favorites plants starting to regrow after a winter nap....and space for new adventures in growing plants...
The Mum's are happy and growing well, and the Day lilies are still in the garden but contained to the back..when we bought the house, the Day Lilies were all through the garden and other than blooming for one day are just a pain! Well that's my opinion anyways....

There are also a lot of people who shop that do this too...Sometimes the problem is that the size that the customer wants is the size that is on the mannequin...most of the time unfortunately we don't have more left in the store....My job is to undress the mannequins for customers....Well that's one of my many jobs..
Mannequins are pretty expensive, and only certain people are allowed to dress and undress them...There are certain ones that only the Visual Supervisor is allowed to touch. So if an employee tells you they can't take those desperately wanted leggings off the mannequin, believe them...leave your name and number and you will eventually get those leggings that you want, usually the next day...leaving in a huff will get you no where...
Hope you enjoyed this little post about my life in retail...
Do you look at the mannequins when you go to buy new clothes?
I think this Tuesday was what reminded me of all these events. There we were.. my husband and I together at a concert in March. Four years ago at a concert in March we decided to move...
So Universe...PLEASE SEND ME SOME PLANE TICKETS...(we had 4 tickets to the east coast, and then unfortunately we had to use them as my father in law got sick....and I'm glad my husband was able to go out and see him...and then my father in law passed away....all the tickets are gone....So...I'm hoping some how....we will still get to visit this summer....I've come to the conclusion a little debt to see family is better than staying home.... But if the Universe,God, would be so kind...4 tickets to the east coast would be nice...

She finds the weirdest places to sleep. I sometimes wish I could be like a cat and just lay on a pile of stuff and find it comfortable enough to sleep.
She always seems to be in a place that might not be where we want her....I think this brief case is a purr-fect bed dad!
Flying from New Jersey to Utah with her was very interesting. I was glad we could have her right in the plane with us. I'm so glad we adopted a rescue cat. She has brought a lot of love to us. She is always around me when I'm home, and she seems to know when I need her quiet companionship. She is also a good alarm clock...well except for this morning, usually at 6:30 she wakes me up. We can't afford to adopt another pet, but one thing I do to help shelter pets is to go to FREE KIBBLE CAT every day and answer their trivia questions. It is a small thing, but it gives kibble to dogs and cats waiting for their forever homes. Perhaps you will go and do the same.
Have a great Thursday!
