The Evil Within the Fridge

Oh, there you are, as I open the door,
With your fancy wave and red and white label .
Why are you still here? I ask as I quickly close the door.
You must have been left here after the family dinner this past weekend.
You must be here to torment me, you are doing a good job.
I left you 5 months ago and I feel great since then.
I look at you and think back to your ice cold bubbly, sugary, brown elixir,
and how good you tasted, but I am healthier now, I don't need you anymore.
I have my new friends Zero, Sparkling Water, Milk, and they don't lead me astray.
Just one sip and all I did all the weight I lost will be gone,
you are an evil temptress Classic.
I will not give in to you, even though you call me so subtly.
We had great times but those days are over, just be on your way.

Lessons on the Side of the Road

Posted 09-22-2010 at 10:37 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

My wife and I were just returning from a wonderful evening together last night when it happened.

We had seen a presentation about relationships and how to communicate effectively. It was a presentation filled with hope, humor and terrific insight. To be honest I wasn’t looking forward to going to the event but unlike others I had been to this one I greatly enjoyed because it made me pensive about the people I love and the relationships we share.

I was shaken out of those thoughts of controlling our critical nature, being positive and communicating effectively as we were driving at about 40 miles per hour down a busy local road. It happened so fast my wife never saw it. I just said “Oh my gosh!” and it happened.

I had hit a dog.

There are few feelings in the world as sickening.

It reminded me a little of a near tragedy I experienced several years ago on a road trip to Idaho. We were on the Interstate, driving at 75 miles...

A little hand

Posted 09-21-2010 at 07:50 PM by Faith4always

I love looking at my baby's little hands. They are so precious and sweet.
I am wondering what to get those little hands for Christmas this year. Hagin will be 10 months old and Nathan is 4 years old!
Then I have a 20 yr old, 18 yr old 15 yr old too.
They all start having birthdays next month.
But, this is Hagin's first Christmas and I can't wait to go Christmas shopping for him!
I also still need to get him a Christmas stocking!! Exciting times!!
Bring on Christmas 2010!!

[B][COLOR=black]Here is a poem I had to post. This describes completely how I feel about my furchildren who are "just dogs". I hope all the animal lovers here will enjoy this. I found it to be very beautiful. [/COLOR][/B]

[CENTER][B][COLOR=seagreen]From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog,"[/COLOR][/B]

[CENTER][B][COLOR=seagreen]They don't understand the distance travelled, the time spent,[/COLOR][/B]

It Has Begun!

Posted 09-20-2010 at 09:38 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

It is September 20, the football season is in full swing, apple orchards are open for the annual pilgrimage of people looking for fall activities, hockey training camps are open, and we have begun our annual hunt for the perfect Christmas gifts. We usually start pretty slow, waiting for the flyers with the unbeatable sale price, and they slowly start filtering down now as the stores build their inventories for the season. We set a goal to have all shopping done by December 1, so we can fully enjoy the season, I think we have met that goal only once in 9 years. That is okay now with so much shopping being done online, which I fully enjoy, because we don't have to fight the crowds at the mall. Well, today I went to the children's Mecca of TRU (Toys R Us) They had exactly what our focus of gifts were going to be for the boys, Imaginext toys. They are great toys and very durable for our hard playing boys, they were buy 2 get 1 free. I enjoy going there, especially without the boys, because...
