Took my daughter out today to play in the sprinkler. The kids next door were out playing in their slip and slide.
Somehow, we ended up having a water fight. lol
My paid yard worker came over to take some pics with my camera and she was showing me some, when I felt a bunch of cold water on my butt. Bri got me. So then, Hailey decided she would just take more pics of Brianna splashing me with water, lol. Of course, Bri went after hailey and she had my camera, so that was no good! lol
Anyway, it was a good day to get wet and fun. But man, I really do need to get a bathing suit. Said I would, but can't afford it right now. And by the time I can get one, it'll probably be fall! Ha!
Lets get mommy... This kinda just made me laugh. lol
So, Summer officiallly started around here a few days ago, once school let out.
My daughter likes to torture, i mean play, with the neighbor kids. In all fairness, they torture her just as much, lol. But it drives me crazy at times. The two boys are the younger ones and there's still a significant age gap there and they usually end up fighting. I say they are like real brother and sister and my daughter sighed and said, "I want a brother and a dog".
Speaking of dogs...
There's this little white dog that lives a few houses down. This man always takes this little dog for a walk and he has stopped to let Brianna pet her. Anyway, while I'm trying to get Bri to quit bugging the kids next door, this little dog races into our back yard. She sniffs bri, sniffs me and races around and back out front. I figured she got off her leash and the man would either come in our yard and get her or she'd race back out to him. Well, I didn't go in the front yard to make sure that was the case. I just let her go...
Turns out, I was wrong. the kids next door came over and tried to get a hold of her, but she raced into the street, right in front of a car. thankfully, the car stopped and waited. but the dog kept circling the car and the car was starting to hesitantly move. The dog seemed so unfazed by it. The kids kept calling her and trying to get her back and then... she raced right out by 14 mile road. Thankfully, she didn't go racing into the road full of cars, but along the sidewalk. Boy was she fast. Then I just felt terrible. I kept looking for that man and he was no where.
I just hope the dog is okay.
I think knowing, now, that I could have let the dog sniff me long enough to where I could pick her up, she would be safe and I feel like an idiot for not doing that.
I remember when I had my dog. I was in 4th grade when we got her. She didn't get too big, but she was a strong little thing and didn't listen well. My mom told me I was too little to take her for walks. I don't know who let me do it, probably my dad, but she got away from me. I chased her, as she ran right to the same road, 14 mile, and I jumped and landed on the leash and got her. But you know how terrible that would've been if she had kept running and I couldn't have gotten her?
Yeah. She got lucky. I got lucky.
I hope this little dog got lucky too and that the family finds her.
You know, never fails... The medical people can NEVER find a good vein in me and I always bruise. The vampires wanted my blood. She couldn't find a good vein. Said it was too deep. So she went off more to the side of my arm. I was a brave girl . Anyway, she bruised me! I always bruise! lol
Ha, when I was preggo and had to go do that stupid glucose test, the guy blew my vein pretty darn good. I had a big bad bruise on my arm and it lasted a while! *Not to mention, they marked the wrong thing, so I had to do the whole friggin 3 hour test, when I was just supposed to be there for the stupid simple glucose test. Ugh. That was a pain*
and then there was all the blood plasma junk I did. They could only use one arm and the one time, the girl went completely through my vein and so when they returned the blood, it hurt like hell.
And one time when I was in the hospital, they couldn't even find a good vein, so they went through my hand instead. Ouch.
I couldn't eat for 12 hours and all I could think was the last time i was in the hospital and they took blood, everything went black and I woke up in a cold sweat. I'm like, why you take my blood and starve me all day? and then that happened when I donated plasma, too. The first time. I got really woozy and someone had to fan me while they turned back the machine so it returned stuff to me, lol. Then I was warned tht if it happened again, I wouldn't be able to donate. And I can't donate now anyway, cause of my darn heart. boo.
At least that didn't happen today.
In other news, the balloon fest is coming up! Woohoo!
So we decided that we would get the arm bands this year. There's a bunch of rides and stuff and you can buy the tickets, but the rides are like 4 tickets a person and you go through your whole sheet super fast. So the armbands are pretty pricey, but... much better deal! Well, me being miss prepared, I looked online and it said you could go to their website to save $$ on tickets and stuff. They would originally be $22 a band, but online they are $16!!!!! So that goes from $44 down to the $32. and considering you have to pay $14 for parking and buy food, any little savings is good!
I feel pleased with myself.
Apparently we had storms last night. I was so out of it, I heard absolutely nothing!
