no ordinary life

To be continued……..



Bedtime conversations:

Adam:  Mom, if I could have one dream forever, I would wish for Cotton Candy Clouds, some Unicorns, Chocolate Raindrops and that I was a “Little Person” driving a Purple Volkswagon into the sunset that is made out of Laffy Taffy!

Me:  I would just like to go to bed and not have to get up to Pee twice a night!

Adam:  Wow…way to ruin my dreams Woman!!

Seasons Change 


Every Spring, I am reminded of this beautiful passage of scripture.  

Ecclesiastes 3King James Version (KJV)

3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.



Responsible Vacation

Morning Conversation

Me:  Adam, wake up.  Before you take a shower, you need to take the dog to potty.

Adam:  Jumps in the shower (dog is in the bed)

Me:  Did you hear what I said?  I told you to take the dog out before you got in the shower.

Adam:  Did he jump off the bed?

Me: No

Adam: He will be fine.

Me:  No, he will pee on the bed!  If he pees on the bed, you are in so much trouble!   I am so tired of having to take care of everything in this house!   I told you that the dog is your responsibility in the mornings.

Adam:   I have been responsible for two weeks Mom!   I need a break!

Me:  I have been responsible for 14 years, son!  That is when I became a mom!!   It’s a full time job!!

Adam:  Looks like someone needs a vacation!!!

*The dog urinated on the bed!   Adam is grounded.     You may ask why I didn’t take the dog out instead of arguing?   I asked myself the same question.

Adam may  be right about a vacation!
