A moment if you please

I am not sure where my thoughts would take me if I started blogging this week. I knew I would be all over the place so I have been putting it off. It’s been an emotionally draining few days and I have been all over the spectrum. Plus work is completely crazy and I am trying to stay caught up. Needless to say, the stress level is high and I should probably be taking some Lysine to keep the cold sores at bay.

Little Willa-menia has been great. She asked the dogs yesterday, or told rather, to Go Potty! Complete with nudge to their backs. It was rather comical. She also got to hang out with her God-mom for a few hours this weekend while B and I went to a movie and dinner. We saw Hall Pass and it was funnier than I thought it would be.

We were also reminded in two separate occasions in the last few weeks just how quickly life can change and to not take things for granted. In an effort to not go off on a tangent, I am going to leave you with a story from a few weeks ago.

If you had ever met my Uncle Richard or had ever ridden with him, you know that he could spot a bungee cord or any other useful object in the middle of the road from like a mile away. He would usually stop and make one of us jump out to get it regardless of where we were at; highway, gravel road….. Anyway, I was coming home from work on a very cold day and was about a block away from our street when I saw a ball hitch laying in the middle of the road. Uncle Richard would be very disappointed to know I did not stop to get it. Mostly because it was cold and it smack dab in the middle of the intersection and Great Falls intersections are not the safest to drive through let alone stop and pick something up. But it made me think of him and I thought I would share it with you.

You're so right about Dad, he could spot anything in the road! I'm glad you shared that memory about him, it made me smile and want to cry all at the same time. :)
