Playing Catch Up

I got this wonderful award from my good friend at "I Can Fly. Just Not Up."

She is an amazing friend and always knows just what to say. I can go to her with any question and if she doesn't know the answer...she will find someone that does.

I am going to pass this on to everyone on the right side of my page. If you are listed there, it means that I check on you just about everyday. My day would not be complete without looking in on your world and seeing how you are doing. I couldn't get by without a "Daily Dose" of your humor and your stories. Please be sure to take this and use it wisely! :)


So, we finally have a court date for my niece! Febuary 4th, we will be going in, trying to get temporary custody of her. This has been long coming. We haven't seen her since December 17th and we miss her a lot. Hopefully her paternal grandparents won't fight us too hard and the judge will see that in the absence of both parents, our home is the best place for her. We offer a stable, clean and loving home. Most importantly, we offer a home free of drug addictions, drugs and drug paraphernalia. Pray for Skylie!


Mom is doing well. After the wonderful news that the tumors in her liver and lungs were shrinking or disappearing, we received some more great news: the tumor in her brain lining did react to the radiation and has shrunk as well. We know this does not mean a cure, or even a chance at remission, but it does mean TIME. That's all we can ask for right now. Also, tomorrow is her birthday! Happy 47th Birthday, Mom!
