the tooth fairy

This is a sad story. About a month ago Ave lost a tooth, she knows Im the tooth fairy but I never have cash on me I always use debit so she was disappointed when she woke up and her tooth was still under her pillow and there was no money. Yesterday she lost another tooth. I again told her that I had no cash and just give me the tooth and when I get a dollar i will give it to you. She wanted to find money under her pillow so gave me a quarter and asked that I put it under her pillow. She reminded me 4 times before she fell asleep, " mom, dont forget". I felt really bad, all she wanted was to experience waking up to find no tooth and a dollar. So I dug through the bottom of my purse and scrounged up $1.50 in change. I put the change on the bathroom counter so I would see it in the middle of the night and I wouldn't forget. I remembered to do the exchange and Ave woke up happy. Poor little girl just wanted a dollar.
Tonight Im taking her to an early Jonas Brother build-a-bear release party so she can get one before they are released tomorrow.
Yesterday when I was taking the trash can tot he street I noticed a dead baby kitten so I had to pick it up and put him in the trash. Why cant people spay and neuter their animals?
We have a few local wildfires and the sky has been so smoky. Im so ready for winter:) Have a great weekend

A message from God

Last night at my women's bible study I was pretty upset and my eyes were tearing up but I wasn't ready to share with the ladies what I was going through. We decided to take up an offering for new study books and when I reached in to pull out some money one of the dollar bills had writing on it. It read, " Jesus Cares" ( 1Peter 5:7) so I looked up the scripture and here is what it said, "casting all your cares upon him, for he cares for you". So that's what I need to do, give all my worries to God and just trust that he knows what is best for me. He doesn't want me crying anymore or worrying about the future. I was so grateful for this message.
Today is my grandmas 91st birthday!!!

Friday already???

Last night was Ave's first night of being a junior girl scout, she is now in the green uniform. Last nights meeting was just to discuss upcoming events like camping, yes another camp. She will be going to the coast in 3 weeks for a 3 day camp. It only coast me $20, cant beat that price. I wish I could go but it's happening the days that tenants pay their rent so I have to be here to collect:( Maybe next time. My son started his senior year of high school. I find it hard to grasp that my son is almost a man. He is doing so well, I'm very proud of him.

Tomorrow I'm taking Ave and her friend swimming. Yay!! I don't swim I just watch. I better go check on dinner, I have a semi homemade chicken pot pie in the oven. Talk to you all later.

Thank You for leaving kind and supportive comments. I was almost regretting sharing something that personal. I know I didnt go into details but that doesnt really matter. I have went through years of therapy to move forward and forgive myself and I intend to keep making progress:)

nothing exciting

I took my honey back to work on Sunday and he had a load ready to go, but his work failed to mention that his truck was across the street at the Freightliner waiting to have a fuel pump repaired and it would be locked in until Tuesday. So we stayed one night in a hotel at the companies expense and planned to stay another but the bed was so horrible we just decided to drive the 75 miles back home. So this morning we woke up early and I took him back to work, his truck wont be done until tomorrow so I am home and he is in a hotel. He has also decided to split his hometime up between me his brother and his new friends in Utah. He is punishing me for something in our past. Whatever. I cant change the past.
Tomorrow school starts for Ave and I am looking forward to the alone time:) Talk to you all later:)
