Manic Monday - Birds

This week the Manic Monday word is "Bird". So here is my contrubution to the Meme. I must say that while I enjoy hearing a little bird chirping and singing their happy little song, I have to admit that I really don't care much for birds. If you could see what they do to my car ALL THE TIME, maybe you would understand. No matter where I park in my drive, they get my car......ugh. I've never had a good experience with a bird. The hummingbirds used to get caught in our garage and not be able to find their way out. Do you know how hard it is to catch a hummingbird. They would run into the walls trying to get out, we would finally catch them when they fell or if we got lucky throwing a towel and catching it inside, so that we could turn it loose outside again. We had to move the feeders away from the house altogether to keep them from coming into the garage.....stupid birds. Then there are the ones who would swoop and dive at me while I was mowing the grass. I hated that. I know they were trying to catch the insects, but they would get too close for my comfort.

Lindsey feels the same way about birdsthat I do. A few years ago, she and I had gone to Disney World for a week during Spring Break. We were walking along and out of the blue, a bird flew over us and left his little surprise right on top of Lindsey's head. She thought the woman walking in front of us had thrown something at her. It was kind of funny..... Lindsey kept trying to touch the bird droppings to wipe it off, and I had to keep grabbing her hands telling her she was just going to smear it. Finally we reached the bathroom where we could wash it off. She was soooo mad. And, to this day she hates birds.
Even on our honeymoon, I was walking along the beach. Paying close attention to the birds, keeping my distance and all of a sudden one flies right into me and starting pecking at me. Scared me half to death, I had to swat it away and go into the water to make it leave me alone.

I know that they serve a purpose and that we need birds. But I'll just keep my distance from them.
Be sure to go on over to Manic Monday for more bird stories and such.
Have a great Monday everyone.

Moles...Hopefully Harmless

For the past month Lindsey and I have been watching a mole on her arm. It has been bothering her, itching, becoming raised, changing in color and even bled a little one day. So we made an appointment to have it looked at. Our family physician said that it indeed looked suspicious, and he set up an appointment with another one of the Drs. in the office that deals with moles. So yesterday we went in and the mole was removed. It was sent to the lab for investigation. Hopefully it will be nothing. Please keep her in your prayers.......
She goes back on April 3rd to have the stitches removed, hopefully we will know something then.

Happy St. Patricks Day

Oh, there lived in old Ireland
A wee little man,

Known by the name of a Leprechaun.

A fairy shoemaker, none other is he

And he had the gift of wishes three.

Well I'm tellin' ya now

Should I meet him this day,

It is I who would boldly step up and say:

Bless the friends that I love,

And the friends that love me,

And the friends of me friends
That's me wishes three.

Hope You Have A Great St. Patricks Day.
I think I'll go have some Irish Stew........

Bowling Green Update

I sure am glad to finally be having some warm weather. I have seen some March Lillies blooming and the time changes this weekend, so Spring will be here soon. Yayyyyyyy..... I am so ready for it.

We have been working, working, working. Michael's sister is no longer practicing in the same office with him, so we have spent this week getting everything set up again. Phone service, Email service, Networking his computer to mine, Copiers, still working on the Fax thing. I actually have my own office area now. I am officially the Receptionist/Assistant now. I love it. It is soooooo much better than working at Target. Having never worked in an office enviroment, I have learned alot, (Thanks greatly to my sister). I must say, the office is now so peaceful, with just Michael and me there. We work well together, granted we have to be careful to make sure that we get a bit of ME time. But so far we seem to be doing fine. The building is large enough that we could rent office space to someone or bring in a partner, and that is what we hope to do. The situation is becoming know in the community and the building is in a Prime location, so time will tell.

The kids are doing fine:
Adam is living in my rental house. He is trying to get a roommate to move in also. With him taking 19 hours of classes, he isn't working much and we need the help paying the bills. Hopefully he will find someone soon.
Lindsey is reaching the dating age.......Heaven help me........The subject has been brought up lately, she hasn't gone out on a date yet, but I know it is out there in the near future.
Hartsul is playing soccer. He has games every weekend and they play in alot of different places. Louisville, Cincinnatti, Owensborro, Nashville, St. Louis are a few of the places they have scheduled to play. He loves playing soccer, but it sure makes visitation a challenge.

Well that is the update from Bowling Green......
Hope everyone enjoys the weekend.
