Is there a Duck Heaven?

Well, my intentions today were to come to work get on the computer and share pictures of Charli Beth on her gator and the ducks [Lily & River] chasing after her. Although I will still share these pictures, BUT...Lily ran under the tire and got ran over


that is my pause for you to bust out laughing. Sorry to all of the animal activist out there, but why did they chase the gator anyways? Was it the noise it made? I have no idea.

Anyways, So now we only have River, and he is SO much more friendly than he was before. My Mother is wanting us to take him to a pond or somewhere since we've already had to explain to Charli Beth that Lily has went to Grandpa's Farm (yes, duck heaven just didn't sound good). River is to small right now though...sorry Mom.

weekend ramble

I've always known that Charli Beth would have a good heart, with a "tad bit" of attitude to go along with it. I like to think of myself as a woman with a good heart, although I may not *always* show it. I pray that she continues to grow with the Lord every day as she gets older and older.

I may have mentioned our "aunt peggy" before, actually I am pretty sure that I have during Christmas and Halloween. We stopped by to see her yesterday afternoon and I believe my little girl made her day. Aunt peggy is in her 80's and widowed, she has a care taker that stays with her through the night so she doesn't fall whenever gets out of bed but I honestly think that people do not stop by as often as we should. She is the sweetest thing, ever! Charli just loves her and likes stopping by to see her, so does Peggy. She calls her the "little thing that talks a lot!" lol. How cute is that? Aunt Peggy never had children of her own, but I do believe she would of been a wonderful woman to of had a couple! She doesn't remember names and gets us all mixed up every now and then but can always remember that I'm, "the girl that talks on that there radio." She told me how proud of me she was yesterday and what a good feeling that was. Heres a few pictures from out short time spent with her.

Do any of you all have a elder family member that you just love dearly? Sometimes we forget the elders and the lonely. Although, we never should, we always get caught up in our own lives and dont spend enough time making them feel as loved as we should. It's to late to make a new years resolution so I'm going to make a promise to myself and pray that I can follow through with it: Go see Aunt Peggy MORE!!!

The duckers (Lily & River) are doing good at least were before I came to work this afternoon. I am sure they are tired of their box and ready to head outside to play in water but the weather has turned off into the 40's with freezing winds. Charli Beth loves playing with them whenever she can, although she doesnt understand that you can't run over them with the gator and you cannot pick them up by their necks. She doesn't exactly "try" to run over them with the gator, but they chase after it I assume because of a noise it makes. They will stumble, fall over and get caught up under it and she'll try to take off while belly laughing. She is such a pure amazment to me!

[work] We have had two different people in the last couple of days to get charged with forgery on trying to change their prescriptions and then taking them to the parmacy. Both have blameed the extra marks on the paper on their childern one that was 3 and one 9. I mean really how would either know to a 10 until a 20 for hydro's and how would a 3 year old know to perfectly circle 2 refills on it in different color ink? One of these people has not even seen their child in over a week, and has to have supervised vistation due to a Meth charge. What is wrong with people? How sad people get whenever they get hooked on drugs. My mom and I also ate at shogun last night and a couple that set next to us was completely SLAMMED (drunk) and making out...yes in their 40's or older. Not that people in their 40's or above cannot make out, but gracious do it in private. I did call in on this couple whenever we started to leave and was told that a officer had said he was right in the location. I never seen one. Who knows? Sometimes I feel that officers don't "always" tell the truth on bolo'ing for a vehicle, matter of fact I know they dont. Which I wish I could change. I'm not saying that you can be right there everytime but they know how important it is to get a DUI driver off of the roadway. Some do take it a little over board sometimes, and pull over EVERY single car just see if they have been drinking so their activity looks good. If they actually though they were drinking and cared, that would be a different story too.

okay, enough rambling for this Sunday night, hopefully the next hour will pass quickly and I can head home.

Dear Charli Beth,

I would be SO very grateful if you would stop kicking me out of the bed, every single night, sleeping on top of me, underneath me or upside down. I love you more than life it's self but pretty soon whenever your room is done, there will be no more Mommy bed. My twin size bed, isn't big enough for you and I. Don't get me wrong little one, I do love you and snuggling with you but you have got to go...Although, I will miss your sleep talking and asking for cheeseburgers, while telling me you love me.

Love you to the moon & back,
your very tired & sore Mommy
(from falling out of the bed, that is)

Memories on Monday

One of the funnest things that I have ever done was white water rafting with a youth group from TN. I honestly, didn't have a clue on what I was doing, and still wouldn't today but it was a blast. Hopefully one day I can round up a few people to head back down there with me and try this again!

Mommy & Charli Beth Day!!

There is nothing in this world that is better or more perfect than a day spent with my beautiful daughter! No, we didn't do anything great but we did have lunch/ice cream, buy paint for her room, and she went to class with me, then out to eat with people from class. She had a blast all day long, and esp. whenever the guys in class started picking on her. Please dont pay much attention to the picture above ..being theres a million thigns that I can pick out wrong with it (acne, palen-ness, curly hair being that the Momma took my flat-iron to Louisville with her!! Oh, and my eyebrows) lol. I can also tell that miss Charli Beth will never work in the medical field, love her heart. Just as I wrote about her gagging about different things the other day. We were having a class last night about strokes and seizures, and had a small clip in the slideshow that pointed out bleeding in the brain. She kept covering my face up and told me not to watch it. You couldn't even tell it was a brain?? Crazzyy kiddo!

We are having another Mom & Char day I guess you can say but she probably wont think today is as fun as yesterday, being that it will NOT involve ice cream! lol. We are fixing to head to the grocery, go pay the babysitter, stop by to see about some insurance and head home to clear out her room so we can start painting, ASAP! Well, that is if I can stop watching and trying to win outfits off of Ebay! But what can I say, I just love the Chicken Noodle brand and there isn't any boutique around here that carries it anymore. Do you Momma's have that problem? I'm not sure exactly what the deal is but I wish they would carry more cute and inexpensive outfits, rather than plain jane ones that cost out the rear!

Thanking God
for a clear on all test that I have had ran this week =)

I wasn't going to blog about this at all, like I had mentioned before but I am in need of a good shout out to big man upstairs with a huge praise. I have been having problems with my peripheral vision since a little bit after my wreck in 2005. It is only effected at times of about 15 minutes to about an hour or so it seems. During this time my vision is just blurred out(mostly occurs in my left eye but has started being more strong in my right), and I feel completely "out of my head" so to speak. This problem was first really noticed while being pregnant with Charli Beth and I also knew that you could have vision troubles with pregnancy that would go away after having the baby. I also have hypoglycemia so I figured that it also had something to do with the temporary eye troubles. After having Charli I eventually went to a local eye Dr and he told me that my eyes were fine and that I could get classes if I wanted them. He didn't take the time to look at the problems that I was having just said that it was nothing. I knew it was at least "something" even if not anything major. The "spells" as I like to call them, eventually went away for a couple of months. Who would of thought that they would come back, but worse too? It started back a couple of months ago, and came back with pain. That has recently turned into major eye pain. No headaches involved. I ended up at the ER two weeks ago due to the pain in my left eye, after two spells in my right eye which had never happened before (this was in a two hour time frame). The Dr. treated this as a migraine and advised me to see an Opthamologist that day, and then gave me two shots that knocked my hinnie slick out for the day.

Monday, I did see the Opthamologist and he to advised me that my eye sight is perfect if not more than perfect, but my peripheral vision was abnormal in right eye. I did a follow up test this past Monday and he informed me that there was no permanent damage to the peripheral sight. Although, that was kind of a "duh factor" to me because I knew my sight was only effected during these spells. Dr. Rooney diagnosed my spells as Ocular Migraines since I "had headaches" with the spells. I did advise him that I do not have headaches, but he didn't say anything to this.I do know that you can still have Ocular/Optical Migraines without headaches but the feelings that I have whenever this happens just doesn't right at all . I still do not feel completely okay with this diagnoses. I have had a CT done this week with and without contrast, which I am sure was very stupid and silly of me being that I do not have insurance (please make no comments towards this, my work does not consider me as full-time and I am looking into trying to get my own through a company). Everything did show up as normal. Yay to that! You can never be to thankful, right? My blood work has also came back fine too. =)

Although, these are all good and great things. I still want to know what is going on with the pains in my eye. It's so very frustrating and annoying. I can't think straight whenever it occurs, and I feel extremely off balanced. I got so frustrated the other night whenever I was talking to my parents and a "spell" came on that I just started crying because I couldn't think of what I was saying. I felt crazy for crying over this, but its something that does bug me. I am satisfied with the CT results my family clinic (which is also where my lovely Sister works) were worried over a tumor. So this is the reason that I am SO thankful. I have been taking Ibuprofen and Excedrin migraine daily like Dr. Rooney (the Opthamologist) first told me to do so but it doesn't seem to be helping. They have mentioned doing an MRI at a later date, but I'm thinking this is not necessary at the moment. Although, I just want something to help the aggravation of this all.

Have any of you ever experienced a "optical migraine?" If so please comment and let me know how you all felt and what you have done for it.

Sorry, for such a long blog lol...I've became such a bad blogger =) opps! Just haven't had the energy or really the time to post to much.

I've mentioned before that the funniest and most awkward and random things seem to happen to me all the time. This is one reason why I love my life SO much. Anyways, my dear Momma was out of town to Cookeville, TN for training this week. I usually talk to her on the phone, A LOT esp while she is gone somewhere [what can I say, I'm a Momma's girl. What other way is there to be though?] I dropped Charli Beth off at the baby sitters house and whenever I returned back to my car "Cowgirls dont cry" was on the radio. Which is my girls favorite song, if you haven't listened to the song before please do so by my playlist at the bottom. Better yet, find the video there is some fine looking Cowboys in it! haha. So I had my moment of singing it then it got to the part of where the Dad was passing away and the last thing he said was cowgirl dont cry, ride baby ride. Wow, did I have a pitty party of what whenever that part came? I'm not exactly sure why, if it was just the fact that I was going to have my silly noggin scanned or what. But not just this, EVERY song that came on after this song was about someone that had cancer. I finally just looked up at the sky and said "God, what is up? This better not be a sign!" and started laughing then immediately called my Mom to tell her how crazy that was that they last 5 songs on was about Cancer. Good grief! She laughed and thought I was crazy just as I am sure you guys will. lol. Then I hang up with her and guess what....another song about cancer. I think at this moment I actually rolled my eyes at God. Yes, I did just say I rolled my eyes at God. I knew the big man liked to miss with this girl, but gracious! haha! It was so funny!! I mean how ironic, right?


Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
