Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I learned from a Cat Bite!
1. They Hurt ~ BAD!
2. Cat Fangs look much like I would imagine a vampire bite would!
3. There is such a thing as Cat Scratch Fever (it's not just a song)
4. 80% of cat bites get infected
(YES - I am waiting for infection to set in because I could NEVER defy those odds)
5. You MUST have a tetnus shot!
6. IF they don't have their rabies shots you must collect said cat and have them quarantined and pray for the best
7. Because a RABIES shot consist of NINE shots to the BELLY!
8. This particular cat we call Hobo (her real name is Samantha - aptly named after the witch on bewitched) PRAISE GOD did have her rabies shot!
9. My Tetanus shot was NOT up to date!
10. If there is a potential that you have a disease you IMMEDIATELY develop ALL symptoms
11. Your SAID friends laugh at you and call you a ninny!
12. Tetnas shots aren't as bad as I thought (after two days of whining, crying and feeling sick at the thought!)

Memorial Day Weekend!

Alright - I definitely feel as though we packed A LOT into this holiday weekend ~ I went to the lake to join the family on Sunday morning after a pool buying trip to Target! I also got Annie a new water table so she could have lots of Splish Splash fun! So we spent the day watching the pool fill up with water playing with the table and feeding the Geese that come because my mom feeds them! They have had chicks and they are super cute! They do hiss at us even though we are providing them with lunch but it makes me laugh ~ Annie chases the BIG one and says "You Mean"

After waiting patiently - we couldn't stand it any longer - It was time to get our suits on and play in the pool! (it's going to take a while to warm up so we figured we could stand it while it was VERY shallow) - So then we got out Annie's pool so she and Elmo could play and splash! It was fun and I can see it's time for swimming lessons!!!! We had some dinner and went to relaxing when the phone rang...It was Shaun (my cousin) FUN - He and Angela and their friends were coming to join us for the night and day!!! We love lots of people at the "yake"

So Monday was fun too - the pool was too cold to get into so we had to go out on the boat ~ (sooo sad) We were about to get on the boat and YEAH - Aunt LeLe called she was on her way too!!!

That's the BEST! She is always lots of fun and she said she was coming with GIFTS!!! She loves to buy things for Annie and Annie loves her to, so it works out and she always picks the neatest stuff ~ She got Annie a doll that has Annabelle on the hat and looks like Annie and a lake towel with ponies (Annie's favorite) and her name! We love Aunt LeLe!!! It was sad that the day had to end but work calls and we were packing up to leave when Hobo (the cat my mom feeds) ATTACKED my leg! Now I must admit ..... If you have never been in a literal cat fight I don't suggest it - And I got BIT TWICE- It's like little vampire fangs and it HURTS! So after I am done with this (because blogging IS foremost) I am going to call my doctor to see if I need a tetnis shot or if I need to deliver the cat to the nearest vet for rabies testing! BLASTEST!

One final note - I would like to say I didn't forget the reason I got to take a day to enjoy my family ~ So I would like to say THANK YOU to our troops and the families of our troops - What you do does not go without notice and prayers!
And a special prayer to all of the families of the fallen troops...
Happy Memorial Day!

Bethie Poo

I can't believe Baby Boy Sharp #2 is almost here! Wow ~ where has the time gone???
I went to a little shower for her last night ~ It was a Blue Bash! I, of course, don't own anything blue so I went in the standard black and white! She was craving Mexican so it was a fiesta! She looks soo cute ~ I just can't wait to meet the newest member of "The Dena Davis Social Club" (he's an automatic legacy) ~
That's what we were called in High School (don't ask me why - one of "The Fellas" made it up)!!!! She got some good loot - I think she was most excited about the nursing pads! hahahahahah

You say it's.....MY birthday?

WOW!!! 33 years come and gone....As a child 34 seemed SOOOO old ~ Praise God 50 is the new 30 so I just hit my teens!!! It was a fun filled day! Mom and I did a little shopping and had some Wild Wings for lunch - Don't tell Lindsay but I had spinach dip ~ it's the BEST!!! Leslie and I went to Logan's for dinner too ~ no one should cook or eat at home on their birthday! We had to leave a little early cause Annie wasn't feeling great - but there was a SURPRISE in my fridge when I got home - The Lees had dropped off a piece of chocolate cake from Eclectic Chef (ok - it was almost HALF the cake)
Birthdays are the best ~ people call to tell you how much they love you and they give you fun gifts!!!

I FINALLY (welcome to the 2000s) got an MP3 player!!!!
Leslie got me an electric toothbrush (I complain a LOT about the cleanliness of my teeth) She also got me a cool camera case - and a very cute picture of the girls which went immediately into a frame!
Sugar brought my favorite treat of sugar free chocolate and made me sugar free frapp
b/c Linds says I have to give up the best part of my day!
English gave me some sunscreen chapstick (Leslie says put it on my nose)

There were cards and well wishes from everyone!!!

I can't believe another year has gone by!!!

And of course there was my BEST present ever - My sweet Annie!!!

Don't I have THE cutest friends???

What a BEAUTIFUL day!!! Kane and Les were kind enough to invite me out on the boat! Wow - NOW I am soooo excited about summer! Les and I just showed up - Kane did everything else! He even entertained Abby and let her "drive" so we could get some sun and chat!!! Our original plan was to go for a ride and be home in plenty of time to get showered and ready for MOM'S NIGHT OUT - but as you will see - We got home in time to change and be 15 minutes LATE!!! I got a little more sun than I thought but it's already blended in (except on the nose!)

Mom's night out was super fun - There were TEN of us!!! Our flock is growing! We went to dinner and 1/2 of us went to Target and then met up with the others at O'Lacey's ~ Where our sweet friend John tended to our every need and even let us look at the karoake books ~ NO ONE sang!!!!
It was a wonderful time ~ It's nice to get out with your "priends"!!!
