What would a girl possibly do without her blogging friends? Her amazing blogging friends that come to the rescue? I can not even tell you how much I love each and every one of you. I love how you share your own experiences and make me laugh, and cry. Knowing I am not alone in this crazy menopausal haze, and male dominated insanity, has really helped. With the exception of my Father going completely bananas at my expensive, and now my sisters, and catching yet another cold (do you think I am stressed?), the weekend has been good. Especially the time I have had to snuggle with Max. He is so soft and yummy. He fell asleep on my bed Friday night while I was reading, and let me hold his paw. He is the definition of sweetness.
Last night while waiting for Mr. 18 year old to come home, I kept myself awake finishing Monster #4. Because he is going to an older great-nephew, he got a sewed on mouth. I think he looks quite happy, and ready to have some fun.
By only stuffing the ends of his arms, they do not look so questionable. I think that may be the answer to the inappropriate looking body part issue I seem to be having.
Here they are all together basking in the sun by my pool. After a few more squares to complete on my vest, I will be starting on Monster #5. I have at least four more monsters to go.
Now for my cute story. For all you American Idol fans I bet you will like this. I work with a 3 1/2 year boy who lives in medical foster care. He has cerebral palsy and can not talk (with the exception of about 5 words), but he is very bright. He makes sounds, and smiles, and laughs. We have a really great time together when I work with him twice a week. Anyway, on Wednesday night his medical foster parents noticed he was singing, and waving his arms the first time Phillip Phillips sang. They waited for him to do it with the other two contestants, but he didn't. Sure enough when Phillip Phillips came on and sang again, my little buddy sang with him. He did it each time Phillip Phillips sang, but only when he sang. I think Phillip Phillips has a new fan, don't you?
Again, I want to thank you all for caring so much. When I am feeling crazy, like I am going to jump out of my skin, I am coming back to my last post to read your amazing comments. You are the best!
