So a few years later we got the crazy cat. He must have watched Bella ring the bell and we got up to let her out. So somewhere along the way he started ringing the bell when he wanted to go out. I find this quite amusing, since I didn't know that you could really train a cat to do anything.
Well all this training has now backfired of me. The other morning at 4:40 am Crazy Cat decided that he wants out, and starts ringing the bell. And he doesn't stop. I wasn't sure witch pet it was, so I trudge downstairs assuming it is Bella, and since I don't want to clean up a mess in the morning. Only to be really annoyed when I find its the cat. He has a litter box he can use. But no he chooses to wake me up at an ungodly hour.
I climb the stairs and go back to bed. Only to have a really disturbing dream. We were at the lake, and Kyle was running with a bunch of older kids, and then the all dived into the lake. Kyle can't swim yet. I assume hes drowning. So I jump in clothes and all. This is where I wake up. It really freaked me out.
I think that I must have dreamt this since I watched one of the videos over on this website. I looked to see if they have instructors in Colorado and they don't. I really wish they did. I would love for Kyle and any other children we may have to be able to save themselves from drowning.

Is there anything that bugs you that people say? Or am I just once again being crazy?

Today I decided that I would brush her out. She loved this. But when I went to vacuum it all up, it filled the canister of my Dyson. I think that groundhog was wrong. I think by looking at the amount that she is shedding, that spring is coming early.
So does anyone out there have any tips for me on how to take control of her shedding?

This morning I went to a homecoming of a friends Husband. I thought that I might show you some video of what I have been telling you about. I am so happy for my friend, and their children. Sitting next to them, watching how excited, but nervous the children were to have their dad finally at home. While we were waiting, one of their daughters, told me they just got their bangs cut. She told me that she hasn't been able to tell their dad yet. And she wasn't sure he would be able to recognize them. This innocent story shows me just how much the children miss their dads, and being able to share everyday things with them. The separation is bad enough on us adults, but I think it affects the children the most. So I am going to ask that you all send out a prayer for the children, whose dads and moms can't be home tonight, because their jobs take them away. Thank you.
I will give you one tip that you should pause the music player first, other wise you will be blasting the same song twice at the same time, and no one wants to hear that.
The count down is on for our own homecoming. Only two weeks to go.

This morning while in the bath room, I look over at the bottle that I opened up. It was the cleanser not the moisturizer. I went to bed with Cleanser on my face. What a idiot I felt like. So my lesson for the day is to always read the label first. Especially before putting it on your face.

Four years ago today, I got dressed in my best (favorite) Jeans that had a hole in the left knee, and a black turtleneck sweater. Kris was wearing something pretty similar. I knew we needed to go to constitution hall, to get married. I thought this would logically be on constitution road. So Kris and I hopped in the car and started driving up and down constitution road, looking for constitution hall. I knew it was downtown. We couldn't find it. We were starting to get short with each other. So we stopped for lunch at the all romantic Old Chicago.
After lunch we decided that we would look again, we drove past the town hall. Hey we thought maybe this is where we need to get married. Hop out of the car, start walking up the steps hand in hand. The nice but intimidating looking security guard takes one look at us and says " I bet your here to get married". We answer yes, and then he tells us that we are in the wrong place. But he is kind enough to give us directions to constitution hall.
We finally get there. Hand over our drivers licences.. Fill out some paper work. State that we are not already relatives, and we are entering into marriage of our own free will. Then she asks Kris if he takes me to be his wife, he says "I DO". She turns to me and asks if I take Kris to be my husband and I answer "Yep". We sign a piece of paper, and our legal wedding is over.
We leave the building, and call our families and tell them we got married. We didn't tell anyone ahead of time, as we didn't want anyone wedding crashing.
So that was it, our romantic legal wedding. Kris if your reading this Happy 4th anniversary. I love you, and I can't wait until your home in a few weeks.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
This week I think I have been pretty boring, but here goes.
I did not have a strange dream about Alan Alder.
I did not have bad thoughts when a friend told me she had a dream with my husband in it.
I did not have cravings for soda all week long, and almost cave a few times.
I did not take advantage of circuit city closing down, and buy a huge TV, and call it my Hubby's birthday present.
I did not get disappointed when the 2 year old didn't have a long enough attention span to finish our Valentines craft.
And I didn't cave at the check out stand this morning when he wanted chocolate. And was saying "Pleeeease" so nicely.
I was back in the house where I spent my adolescent years. We (Me and I think one of my brothers) at the age we are now, were in the back yard. But it wasn't our same backyard. It was kinda like a field, with a creek running thru it. the drop off looked kinda like a canyon, but the width was small. Across the way was Alan Alder at his house. (I told you it was weird) And he ran across the creek to come tell us something. I started to panic, because there were alligators in the creek. He said he didn't realize this, so I pointed them out. There was a Mom and a baby alligator. And then we were walking down a little further to where II was going to show him more. And a HUGE alligator ran up at us. It scared the s*** out of us, and we ran back inside our house. Then I started to panic. Bella and Zelko were outside. I had to let Bella in the back door, without letting the alligator in. And then go to the front door and let Zelko in. But this time I was in a state, the alligators were surrounding the house. I was sure they were going to get inside the house. Break down the glass sliding door that we had. This is when I woke up.
How weird is that? What was Alan Alder doing in my dream? Why was I in my childhood home? With my current pets? I think its strange how the mind works. Does anyone else still have strange dream in their adulthood, or is it just me?

On the way home. Well in the car, before we strapped him in.
This all the stuff that floods back to me, when I hear these songs. I hope you like them. If you live near a military base, and get a chance. You should attend a home coming celebration. I don't think you can help but be moved by the emotion in the room. You will see first hand what I am trying to describe here. You'll appreciate some of the sacrifices that you may not think about everyday, that these soldiers make, so this country can be free and safe.
