We have been "dog sitting" Tinkerbell, the dog in the last post, for a little while. She has been in our home since Papa's last surgery in September. We have really enjoyed watching her, but she does belong to my MIL and she missed her and came to get her the other day! Tinker is a dog that is high-maintenance and requires lots of brushing (we are not very good at keeping up with a high maintenance dog). I think my MIL was horrified when she saw how "bad" Tinker's hair was and how truly spoiled she got here. So home they went! We are all sad to see her go, but happy the Gramma is ready to take on her dog again (I think they missed each other)! Thanks for the visit Tinker, it was fun, we loved having you!!
I'll fill in on the children another day, they all require their own entry on what is going on in their lives! I sure do love being their mom and watching them grow up, but I know I always miss where they were, I can never wait to see where they are going and who they are becoming, however, I always miss where they were!!!!
I have been given the opportunity to be on the Rule Scholars Team at work! I am so excited! There is a team of about 6 of us, 2 mechanical, 2 TYE, and 2 MOW! We all work together and study our rules and policies and then we compete with other divisions! It is an awesome opportunity! The studying has begun. The competition takes place in January in Fort Worth! Yes, I will have to leave again, but it is a short trip! Maybe my family can come with me this time, depends on the air fare, we'll see!
I turned into the Snippy Icing Lady today at the kids school! When I make icing for the kids to decorate cookies, it is not your typical icing! I had to take it to school and did not want to "just drop it off" and let someone else take it down to the class. But I didn't explain my reasons for wanting to deliver it I think I said something like "It's icing, I have to explain to them how to use it" then I think I kind of heard what came out of my mouth and I did make an attempt to recover myself and it went baaaad, really, really baaad, it went something like (in the snottiest tone you can use) "is that o.k. or do you need me to leave it in the office?" Yes, I'll be sending an apology note and flowers to the Personnel in the Office and I will be signing that note: Crazy Nazi Icing Lady! All it will say is: I am so sorry!
