the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The GOOD news is my son, Michael,


who has been trying very hard to get a job on the fire department found out yesterday that all his hard work has paid off. Yeah, he is now officially a fireman, or will be after the academy is complete! Now I can add one more thing to the reasons he makes me proud to be his mom...his perseverance!

The BAD news is my mom broke her hip and will have surgery this morning. Thanks in advance for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers.

The UGLY, well that just goes with the movie title, so it has to be Madeline, our bulldog. The sweetest dog in the world!

It's going to be crazy around here for a few weeks. Our goal is to get my mom to be able to put on her dancing shoes and make it to my nephews wedding in 4 weeks.

Thanks for stopping by,

First congrats for your son getting the job he wants
Second thoughts and prayers for your mum's quick recover
Third, a face only a 'mum' can love but we all do love our dog and cat family members no matter what, we have a 12 year old lab who doesn't realise he is a dog and a 2 year old rescue cat with a wonky leg, well anything not 100% fits in well in our house
Have a great weekend

Congrats to your son, what a great family he has. I'll keep your Mom in my thoughts and prayers. We live in a great age, but she'll still have a long haul in front of her.

Congrats to your son, sending good thoughts for a quick recovery for your mom and as far as the last, well our little Simon has had the same two fangs sticking out of his mouth for the past couple of months until today when we found one of them on the carpet!
