Always Have A Dream



Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

Time flies when you're having fun!

Wow this weekend flew by to quick! I guess maybe because the weekend started out with Mike & I working on Friday, and then Mike had to work again today. Cody went to Grandma & Grandpa's Thursday night, and went with them up to Barb & Paul's to spend Friday night. Thanks again Mom & Dad for watching Cody on such short notice, we both appreciate it very much. He had a really good time up there, especially at that park with all the inflatable playground toys.... I guess that's what you call them, o'well, visit Barb's blog she has pics of them on there. Thanks to Barb & Paul too for all they did with Cody. He really enjoyed himself, especially the 'Cody' pancakes Paul made for him Saturday morning. He made them in the shape of the letter's in Cody's name. How cool was that! Saturday when Cody got home we just kind of hung out & watched movies together, had a nice dinner and that was about it for Saturday. Today Cody & I spent the day outside, I worked in the backyard with all my flowers, and he played with his friends all day. I tried to keep them outside because it was so nice out, but no could do, they were in and out all day. But they had fun. They surprised me by getting my back side with a squirt gun while I was bent over one of the flower beds! I had to laugh, though they thought it was funny when I took off after them with the hose!! At one point we went to Lowes, I needed to get some bug spray for my Roses, the Japanese Beetles are out & about trying to eat the new buds. Bye, Bye Beetles!!! Anyhow, we had some excitement when we were coming home. We seen the Fire truck, ambulance, and cop cars out in front of his little friend Lyndsey's house. Cody wanted to walk over there to see what was going on, so we did. Lyndsey's Dad was backing out of the driveway (looked before pulling out,nothing) then all of a sudden a guy on a 'crotch rocket' (job security!!)t-boned him, by the looks of it & with no skid marks and the damage to Todd's car, I would say he was going around 50+ (in a 35mph zone). Thankfully Todd wasn't hurt, he was the only one in the car, Lyndsey and her Mom were both in the house. The guy on the bike, well that's another story. I'll just say he'll be in the hospital for quite a while. Let me tell you, it was hard for me not to want to jump in & start doing my job, Mike said if he would have known that I was right there he would have called for me to help. They needed an extra hand rolling the guy on the back-board,they ended up calling the second ambulance. O'well, anyhow that was some of our afternoon excitement. Then after our baths, Cody & I just watched some TV, and then he went to bed & me? I'm still on the computer!! LOL ;0) Take care & smile!

So glad Cody enjoyed his time with us! Funny to realize the pancakes were such a highlight of his weekend! ha! The bounce place WAS a lot of fun...we'll have to do it again sometime!
