Family, Friends and Frags


Half-Past Kissin' Time


~ I worked a weird schedule this week.  A co-worker asked me to switch a day with her.  She is the same one who switched with me in March, enabling me and Byron to run off and get married last-minute, so I was happy to help her out.  I worked Monday and Tuesday, was off Wednesday and Thursday, and I work Friday night, then I'm off Saturday and Sunday.  It's like having two weekends in one week.  Kinda cool!

~ Dusty is Shelbie's boyfriend.  He has cancer.  His mom is Heather, my friend from high school.  I LOVE her.  She also drives me crazy.  BUT...when she calls and asks me if I can do her a favor and take Dusty to his chemo appointment?  I can't say no to that.
It is so surreal to hear her explaining that the length of the appointment depends on his blood counts and whether or not he needs a transfusion....sigh.
He's strong. He can fight this.  That's what I keep telling myself.

~ Tonight (Thursday night) we went to my parents' house for dinner.  Hayleigh was there and OMG.  She is at my FAVORITE AGE (between one and two).  She is SO funny, cute, adorable, etc......I just wanna freeze her!  She sings, dances, talks, plays,  And my kids adore her.

~ This weekend we're going to the Springs to celebrate a friend's birthday and Memorial Day.
I can't wait!  I love this time of year.


~ More and more every day, I realize that my husband is the perfect man FOR ME.

Hope y'all have a great weekend!!

I'm settling in for my 4 day weekend with my kiddos. I read your bio and see you are a dog lover. Me too. And your property looks awesome. I hope Dusty beats cancer as well. New follower. Have a fabulous weekend.

what a special real friend you are to take someone for chemo treatments. I agree with you about that age group. They are so fun before they grow too much and start getting influenced by society. Oh and even more fun as grandkids.

Having two weekends in one week is kinda cool! :)

What a sweetie you are taking your friend's son to his chemo appointment (and yeah, I couldn't say no to that, either). Keeping him and his family in my thoughts and prayers!

Between one and two is a favorite age - Hayleigh sounds adorable! :)

Sounds like you'll definitely have an awesome weekend! :)

Then you know you married the right person :)

Its something to go to a chemo facility... to see all the people fighting. Its humbling.

I love kids that age too. (Hence, my job choice of preschool teacher / day care operator).
I hope Dusty beats his cancer. How stressful for everyone! You are a precious friend too.
xoxo
Happy Weekend.

That is just about the perfect age, isn't it?
Have a good weekend!

It's so hard to watch someone go through that horrible process. I'm certain that he appreciates all of the support you're giving him.
He can do this.
Oh 1 and 2...that was a good age wasn't it?
