What I've learned this weekend

If scientist find an abandoned cub, they will rub him down with vicks vapo rub and put him in another mother's den while she is sleeping. When she wakes up, all she will smell is the vapo rub, and will lick all the cubs clean, and by the time she is done, they will all smell like her, and she will take them all as her own.

16 oz of spinach, 2 banannas, one apple (not peeled but cored), 2 oz of honey, 8 oz of vanilla yogurt, 16 oz of milk, blended together, make a delicious smoothie, and the kids are oblivious to the healthiness of it! WOOO HOO!

You can add zuccini, squash, carrots, and spinach to regular spaghetti sauce, and your kiddos will not notice!

Those plastic thingamajigs that you wear when it's raining suck.

Walking around the zoo wet is no fun.

Seeing your son smile at the animals makes the lack of fun completely worth it.

Bret Michaels is still recovering but not much better.

Whole wheat spaghetti is a little more dense, but good!

Cockroaches can live for 9 days after their head has been cut off.

The world's largest amphibian is the giant salamander. It can grow up to 5 ft. in length.

The first coast-to-coast telephone line was established in 1914.

I'm bored, see ya later....

What I've learned today 4-16-2009

Now now...what an adventurous week...I've definitely learned more than I ever wanted, but one cannot be choosy when learning...all things, even those which you find most painful...will only help you become the person God wishes you to be.

Lets start with silliness shall we?

A mattress can only handle six months of pee before essentially dissentegrating.

You can buy piss proof cots for your little pisser at on Amazon. Amazon by the way, I must tell you, has been such a godsend to me in the past few months!

My wide eyes kitten is either profoundly retarded or very interested in my bathroom, come pee and see, lol. Eyes Wide Open

Painting a mildewed door takes four days, to do one side.

But wow it looks awesome!

On one side anyway.

Rocky's pizza is full of teeny boppers who are more interested in their multicolored hair than what I want for dinner and I will NEVER EVER EVER GO BACK!

Electrocution feels amazing on broken ankles.

My true friends are far too far away from me.

Being incapicitated by a broken foot will add fifteen pounds to your hiney in less than a month.

My sweetness doesn't care and that makes my heart smile!

Going to Physical therapy with a bunch of 20 year old super thin, super muscular people makes mama very subconscious.

Buc Sports, at East Tennessee State University, did an amazing job of making me not feel so awkward, even when I was trying to turn my foot this particular way which made my bone pop out and say damn in front of old ladies, lol....

ok gosh it wasn't damn...it was worse...

but seriously the pain warrented my yelp....

...'s continue to be my favorite.

My sweet Weezy

Weezy was tiny, he had always been tiny. When he was born, his mama pushed him to the side to die. She ignored him. He got smaller and smaller before I came in. I refused to accept that he was disposable. I wrapped him up in a washcloth, and tucked him into my bra, think what you may, ya'll know I don't have nothing fillin up my bra anyway, hahaha! Never the less, he was tiny and cold, and I carried him around, even to meetings, and no one noticed. He was so small. Every two hours I fed him a dropper full of cat formula. He would hear my footsteps on the stairs and begin crying for me. He knew I would take care of him. By and by, he got bigger, he graduated to regular cat food and the occasional mouse. He was ok.
Today I let him out like any other. He loved to chase my Granny's birds. He never caught any, but he sure tried. He was a cat in a kitten body.
So, I had gone to let Miss Mia Wallce go to school, and came home just in time for lunch. I saw Weezy across the road. I called for him. And here he came, running. But there was a car, driving so fast I can't even tell you what color it was. And my sweet Weezy went flying. I ran to him, I picked him up and the blood poured all over me. I held him so close. I felt his last heartbeats. I stood and stood, and could not move.
My sweet neighbor Walt came to me, he took Weezy from me. He carried him to the backyard and buried him. I only remember crying that because my foot was broke, I could not bury him. It hurts me so much. I have animals coming and going like crazy, that is ok with me. But Weezy, he was different.

You want her whole. Trust me. For when she finds her muchness; when she gathers all the pieces of herself, all the pieces you have broke...
