Love Around the World


Friday, June 28, 2013


Tons and tons of stuff going on at Pug Manor. I apologize - AGAIN - for not posting that often but work, kids, school (their's not mine), travel... it piles up and I just don't post. I read all of my blogs every day, but cannot find time to write anything.

With that said, here are just some random thoughts going thru my head...
  • My baby girl, Bug, is going to be 15 in two weeks. GAH! When did THAT happen?
  • And J-man? In a month he will be 18. EIGHTEEN! A man!
  • With that being said... 18 is an adult. I won't call him J-man... I don't think I need to make him anonymous any longer. His name is Jarrett and I am his proud mama.
  • Jarrett has signed up for the Future Soldiers program... that means when he graduates at the end of this coming year (fingers crossed) he is going in the Army.
  • Am I scared for him? HELL YES.
  • Is it what HE wants to do? Hell yes.
  • Because of that I will proudly sport an Army Mom sticker on the bumper of my car.
  • This time next year I will need therapy.
  • Bug is getting her learner's license in a couple of weeks...
  • That therapy may need to start earlier.
  • I'm going to Indianapolis this weekend for work. What the heck is there to do in Indy beside visit the racetrack?
  • I still love my job. My team and the folks we train are the most awesome folks around. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
  • I actually applied for a position that would have been a promotion. It was for the same group I work for, but I would be writing sales training. BLECH. I decided I love my team so much I withdrew my application.
  • Best decision
  • Considering where I was this time two years ago... I am so happy.
  • Our little town has had it rough the past few weeks... murders, drive-by shootings, stabbings, robberies... I just want Carl to be safe. Folks are cray-cray out there.
  • I miss The Walking Dead.... BAD
  • Dozer is getting so old... I worry about him. We think he is almost deaf and blind. My sweet boy.
  • Walker, on the other hand, is the sweetest, funniest, most loving pupper. He loves his snuggles and will catch a ball as long as you will throw it.
That's all I've got for now. Miss you all.

You post less than I do. If that's possible. giggle But I am so happy things are going so well at Pug Manor, although I am sorry to hear about Dozer. Gosh, I remember when he was a lil' guy.

And the kids? Yeah, well. . .I am so with you there. But I am SO PROUD of Jarrett. That is wonderful and please thank him for picking a career that protects us and keeps us all safe. I know it's scary Mom [we're AF parents here] but you gotta love them for being so brave, especially in these times.

Thank you for stopping by to visit. As one of oldest [longest serving? hee] Tadpoles, it always warms my heart to see a comment from you. Okay, okay, I run screaming through the house announcing it, but we'll just keep that between you, me and the family. Mmmmmkay?

Love you to bits! Hugs and love.

Wait -- when did your kids get so old? You have a child old enough to be going into the army? Wow.

Having adult children is wonderful, but it's also hard to let them go. It's such a crazy mix of emotions.
