Day Two

Once again.... I made it. Ms. Cranky Pants did not reside at my house again! Not one peep from little ol me. Starting to get the hang of this "not giving a flip" thing. Who knew an old dog could learn new tricks?!? Two days down is monumental for this old pit bull. (Just a FYI: maybe I should have used chihuahua instead of pit bull. The only pit bull I ever had would run hide under the bed when company came. She was such a weinie.)

Chris was such a dear to come over and give a Reiki treatment to both J & I. J did really well but she did say that the yuckies left a pretty big hole when they vamoosed so I made sure to fill her up with lots of pink love so the hole wouldn't be so empty.

Guess what? AT is this afternoon. Mrs. Kacak is coming. Mrs. Kacak & AT are going to meet with J about school issues. I. AM. NOT. GOING. TO. BE. IN. THE. ROOM.! School is now their deal not mine. Nope. Don't even want to hear about it. Not my problem.

Letting go....see....it's not a big deal after all. Boy that pendulum really swung in the other direction fast didn't it? Didn't see it coming did you????

After Jessi and AT meet about school then I'll come in for our normal AT session. Sweet loving mom. No longer the education enforcer. No more Ms. Cranky Pants. She has left the building.

Now that all of that is out of the way I would like to introduce some really cool, new people around the block. Kelly is in the process of finding her daughter. Joy has two little radishes. CJ is a really awesome mom to Sean and has a great post about Eye Lights today which I am going to check into. Thorn & Lee are also in the process of finding their children. Brenda is mom to two radishes too. Enough two/to for you? Maia is the sister to many and works tirelessly in a residential treatment facility with lots of little radishes. Please keep her on your prayer list as her family is going through a tough time right now. Newly found, Queen Mommy is the mother of two as well.

By the end of today I'll have all of you linked up on my blog so if you don't want to be associated with a former chihuahua mom let me know and I'll de-link you. ;-0 Gotta share the love ya know!

This morning while I was plundering for CJ I found a really cool OT site. So I thought I would share. While I am over using my linking capabilities I'll share The Listening Program with you too. Lauri is somewhere in the mid-west shaking her head saying, "good Lord! I wish I had never taught that trick to the chihuahua mom." For all you new bloggers I will give you the tip. Highlight the words that you want to hide a link in then click on the world button that looks like it has hat. (It's a couple of buttons over from the Bold and Italics button). Paste your link in the long box. Works like a charm!

Still giving up. Powerless. Yep that's me alright!

I laughed when I saw all the links, then I read the rest of the post. I am impressed! Of course, it doesn't take much to impress me.

Way to go on the school thing. It is a hard thing to imagine at first, once you start, it is easy and refreshing. We are having the best year, yet.
