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.

So much to catch up on

  It seems like the past week has been a little crazy. Just busy with everyday things, taking Cody to & from school, work, house work, finishing up antibiotics for a sinus infection, etc etc... I'm just now starting to feel a little better and not seem like my head has been stuck in a fish bowl (a small one!), and I can't forget yesterday evening Mike called me from work and said he would be leaving work early. He said that he slipped and twisted his ankle while out doing some training with the fire trucks, and that I would probably have to take him to the ER. Ok, so I'm thinking I'd go get him and he would hobble out to the truck, no problem. Yeah well, I get there and one of the other guys had to help him to the the truck! Why didn't he tell me on the phone that it was that bad? Well, that's a man for ya!! If he would have told me that I would have just said to have the guys take him in by ambulance (since they weren't out on any other calls right then) then I would just meet him down at the hospital. And wait....isn't that what the ambulance is for?? O'well, those of us that work with them don't see the need for that unless ABSOLUTLY necessary. We're all like that I guess.
  Anyway, after all the hurry up and wait, he does have a broken foot. So don't know how long he'll be off work. I'm just thankful that it wasn't as bad as some on the job accidents can be! Before I forget, I want to thank Mom for being there to take Cody for the night, because heaven knows how long ER visits can take. It really wasn't that long of a wait, about 4.5-5 hrs, and was still too late to have picked up Cody. So it's a good thing we did decide to just have him spend the night with Grandma.
  So I'm home with him now, and taking care of both my 'Favorite Men'! I don't mind, it's kind of nice to actually have Mike home and have him relax instead of up doing what ever and not sitting down for a minute. It's been a nice (rainy) day, minus the broken foot, to just relax and watch movies, talk, I can't forget my favorite (blog)!!
  I'm going to post some pictures of Cody and his belt testing at Karate last week. I had school (continuing education) classes last Saturday, so I couldn't go. Mike said he did really good! Also both of Mike's sisters were here with the kids to visit, and they all went to Impression 5 Science Center. It's really a neat place with lots for the little ones to do. Everyone had a good day that day! I just wish I hadn't missed it.
He's always happy to pose with his instructor Mr. Faett!
I'll say it again, Cody loves spending time & playing with his cousins. (I think they would follow him anywhere!! lol)
Even playing in the water....
and he loves explaining things to them.
I'm glad he has so many cousins now to play with!! Also that they had such a good day!

great pics from Cody's testing.

Hope Mike isn't too bossy or too grouchy while home! If he is, just steal a crutch & jab him with it! LOL!
