My Favorite Post

I have been thinking about all the posts I have done and what my favorite was and this one by far is my favorite post. I love Dr. Suess and the situation with the dogs really called for the ramblings of Dr. Suess via lala at the time. I often think in quotes! does that make sense? you know something happens and a quote from a movie/show or a line from a song pops into your head....sometimes I say them out loud and at time I get strange looks but other times you get that look of recognition and the slight nodding of the head like Mike Meyers in Wayne's World.....squinting of the eyes slight nodding of the head....."exxxceeelllent"!

So without further adu....adu
here is the post ( I thought I would just cut and paste it just to make life easier for you! aren't I nice?!)

All because a little bug went ah-choo was totally my favorite Dr. Seuss book.at least I think it was a Dr. Seuss's book?!........ yesterday's events made me think of this book and the ripple effects of life!

I lost my house key on Tuesday..........don't know how it happened? one minute it was there then it just wasn't............I was so busy cleaning that I don't know HOW it happened......
it just did..........

because I lost my house key I made J give me his and I was going to go get it cut.............

because he didn't have a house key when he got soaked from working outside in the rain yesterday he came home and couldn't get in the front door

because he couldn't get in the front door he went round to the side of the house and climbed over our gate.....

because he climbed over our gate he knocked a piece of wood loose...........

because he knocked a piece of wood loose the dogs got out........... both of them

because the dogs got out and they are well..........dogs....without thought or reason.......they ran

because they ran.............all over town being spotted and thankfully avoiding tires and such..........they got picked up by the local pound...........

because they BOTH got picked up from the pound........I got a phone call........$175 to get Shelby out and $150 to get Jackson out (they told me next time Jackson gets in the pound it will cost me $200!!! can we say money grab?? come on say it with me......mo-ney gr-ab............ugh

because of that phone call............I lost my cool and yelled and screamed and...........said unmentionables..........I was pretty angry..........there was no break they could give??? money grabbers, that's right I said it.....money grabbers.........

because I was upset the girls were upset................

because the girls were upset............I was upset............

because of being upset...............I got a tummy ache.........yesterday was an emotional day for me between crying about Morgan and meeting with the mom's of the girls that have been giving M a hard time!! (which we didn't end up sitting down together the councilor took over..........thank goodness.........I was a wreck emotionally and didn't want to cry in front of the other mom's)..........
(side note for new readers. my oldest had a hard time with bullies last year)

because we can't just leave the silly overly expensive now dogs in the pound..........I had to try to figure out where I am going to find $325!!!! I think I did.....thank goodness for family being willing to lend some $$$.............

all because I lost a $3.00 key!!!!!!!!


hoped you enjoyed lala's version of Dr. Suess

oh and I should mention that the dogs did get out again after this....the night before we moved! it cost us $500.00! and since we moved they have gotten out and almost got hit and been in the pound up here, thankfully the local pound here doesn't charge!

I remember that post. The frustration was pulpable.
I just read through all the posts I've missed on account that it's sucks to be me right now (work wise).. sorry to hear that J wasn't doing to well a couple of days ago. Hope things are leveling out. Glad to hear his parents are up. That should be a help, and a boost to his spirits. You remain in my heart and my prayers.
Love you
Rena

This post was hilarious, though am sure that wasn't the case at the time the events unfolded!

good storey telling - some of it sad but TRUE.
Where's the Keys gone? - happens too often to most of us.
Leads me to think of the Keys of the Kingdom that we have all received when we accepted the Lord, but without realizing it we have laid them down and many doors remain unopened.

I am glad J is feeling somewhat better - I will continue to pray for him and you all though!
