Remember back in the day when we first got our sweet Dakota and we were still trying to find what fits her style… and what doesn’t? Remember the tattoos I received from one of our tests? Well, today, my friends, I have another test that has been long outlived.

I had my ganglion cyst expunged.

What does that have to do with this pretty girl?

[Almost] EVERYTHING.

You see, we run… A LOT… and I get tired of holding her leash in a fist, so I moved it to my wrist, easy to maneuver and hold in place without having to run with a solid fist the whole time. Runners, you understand, right? As it turns out, this is a bad idea to lead your pup in this manner and will cause trauma to your wrist if a squirrel or cat runs by and you are not ready for the jolt.

So, I’ve had this baby since before our Ironman in Austin, at least 2 months. I was going to add a picture of the before, but I didn’t take one because it hurt so bad after I got it shrunk down to the size I thought it wouldn’t hurt anymore… but I was wrong. You can look it up if you want, some of them are PRETTY nasty.

But here is my after shot:CystMy Dr. numbed it with lidocane [which set my wrist on fire... GIRL ON FIRE, yall] then used a 16 gauge needle to try and suck out the goo… but that didn’t work so we worked together like it was the mother of all pimples. It was AWESOME! Nothing like two grown women going at a pimple, right? You’re welcome for the visual, its burned in my brain too.

So, if ever you need suggestions on pet rearing when it comes to leashes, I feel I am well qualified to help you out. Also, when it comes to tetanus shots and other 16 gauge needles, I’m you’re gal.

PS – My daughter has been getting at me to “just get that nasty thing off” for the last 2 weeks, so I sent her the able “selfie”. Her response “Such a sad selfie, but yay! No more nasty bump.” <3

Today, I went to get a pack of M&M’s from the candy drawer and this is what I opened up to:

Mice

I am SO sad. All of my Hershey with Almond down the trash bag… and the Hershey kisses and the tootsie rolls. WHAT A WORLD!!

I sent the pic to our amazing exterminator, Jeff at Superior Pest [281-753-2677], and he has verified that the teeth marks are from mice and not Anole lizards as I wished, haha.

I know it has happened within the last week because my Sweet C went to the drawer just last Friday for some gum to chew without any eyebrows raised.

This is what Dak think’s about the whole situation after I’ve texted B and C the pictures incriminating the mice who encroached our glorious candy space. This is exactly why C and I have been polling for a cat for the past year, no mouse would have gotten away with this with a cat in the house!

So… If you find some great deals on candy… Let me know!

I found a lovely typography print on Pinterest yesterday in my lonely state, thanks for your prayers!

A Parent's Promise by Joel Felix I am not your friend—I am your parent. I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare and hunt you down when needed, because I love you. When you understand that, I will know you're a responsible adult. You will never find someone who loves, prays, cares and worries about you more than me. This is my promise to you."

A Parent’s Promise by Joel Felix

It Reads:

“I am not your friend – I am your parent.

I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare and hunt you down when needed, because I love you.

When you understand that, I will know you’re a responsible adult. You will never find someone who loves, prays, cares and worries about you more than me.

This is my promise to you.”

Do you think Joel would make this into wallpaper?

Trying to be the good balance of a stepmom/parental unit in our household, but this past weekend the boundaries were crossed and I had to be, what might seem to some, the “bad guy”. I am not Lady Tremaine. It is heavy on my heart that I needed to make the lines clear to my Sweet C.

An amazing summer with our Sweet C ended with the last three days being so difficult all because of a silly pair of jeans. We were so many steps ahead, and because “we” couldn’t communicate, we are so many steps behind. I am not lady Tremaine.

It was perfect timing that I was able to read I Corinthians 13 in my quiet time this weekend, God’s timing is impeccable. I love this girl so much, but God loves her so much more.

We need your prayers. A lot of them. Prayers for my baby to learn from this and grow. Prayers for me to know that I am a work in progress and God is perfect and He is taking care of our hurting hearts.

I would love to hear from you too, if you are hurting today, I would love to pray with you!
