Nov.14, 1997 to Aug 31, 2007
We bought my dog Bessie (and her brother Hauss) for each other as Valentines gifts 2/14/98. That is really the only valentines we have celebrated and truely it was our excuse to spend $300 on dogs. She was named Bessie because she looks like a black and white cow. Last night she was hit by a car on our dirt road. She survived it but suffered two broken legs, puncture lung and a fractured skull. She wasn't in any pain because of the brain damage. So the vet recommened she be put to slep, that the surgery would be to much for her. I'll post apic of her later. I dont have any pics on this computer but i emailed Ben a pic of her not to long ago. So it should be in his emials. We have another old guy. His name is Pj. Ben found him in the alley by his moms house. This was back in the summer of '97. He's already 10. He's still truckin', a little slow but doing good.

I got the call from best buy that it's all done. they were able to retrieve my pics. I go pick them up today. Now if i had a computer to put them on. Ordering online was easy but the wait while they put the darn thing together is killing me. Though my printer is on its way, actually its an all-in-one. printer, scanner, copier. hope its decent because it was pretty cheap

When God Made Peace Officers....

When the Lord was creating peace officers, He was into his sixth day of overtime when an Angel appeared and said,"Lord, you're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one." And the Lord said," have you read the specs on this order? A peace officer has to be able to run five miles through alleys in the dark, scale walls, enter homes the health inspector wouldn't touch, and not wrinkle his uniform. He has to be able to sit in an undercover car all day on a stakeout, cover a homicide scene that night, canvass the neighborhood for witnesses, and testify in court the next day. He has to be in top physical condition at all times, running on black coffee and half-eaten meals. And he has to have six pairs of hands."
The Angel shook her head slowly and said,"six pairs of hands... no way."
"It's not the hands the causing me problems," said the Lord, " it's the three pairs of eyes an officer has to have." "That's on the standard model?" asked the Angel. The Lord nodded,"One pair that sees through the bulge in a pocket before he asks,"May I see what's in there, sir?" Another pair in the side of his head for his partners safety. And another pair of eyes here in front, that can look reassuringly at a bleeding victim and say,"You'll be all right ma'am,' when he knows she won't"
"Lord," said the Angel, touching his sleeve, "rest and work on this tomorrow." "I can't," said the Lord, "I already have a model that can talk a 250 pound drunk into a patrol car without incident, and feed a family of five on a civil service paycheck." The Angel circled the model of the peace officer very slowly, "Can it think?" she asked.
"You bet," said the Lord. "It can tell you the elements of a hundred crimes; recite Miranda warnings in it's sleep; detain, investigative, search and arrest a gang member on the street, in less time that it takes five learned judges to debate the legality of the stop... and still keeps its sense of humor. This officer also has phenomenal personal control. He can deal with crime scenes painted in hell, coax a confession from a child abuser, comfort a murder victim's family, and then read in the daily paper how law enforcement isn't sensitive to the rights of criminal suspects."
Finally, the Angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of the peace officer. "There's a leak!" she pronounced, "I told you that you were trying to put too much into this model." "That's not a leak," said the Lord, "It's a tear." "What's the tear for?" asked the Angel. "It's for bottled up emotions; for fallen comrades; for commitment to that funny piece of cloth called the American Flag; and for justice," said the Lord
"Your a genius," said the Angel.
The Lord looked somber. "I didn't put it there," He said.

my computer

Something is wrong with my computer. Its like it wiped its slate clean and started over. There is something wrong with my C drive. We are taking it in tomorrow first thing. As of right now i h
ave lost 3 yrs of pictures. except for what i have on blogger and photobucket some on ofoto and if any of my friends and family havent deleted from there computer. I have nothing in my email. I would have lots of pics if i had something in my sent file. I dont know why i dont have any emails left. Cross your fingers that my photos can be retrieved. Our computer crashed about 4 yrs ago and this is different. Because im on my computer right now. When the hard drive went out i couldnt even turn my computer on. I dont have disks because our computer doesnt have a burner. im so sad.
update- we took the dinosaur to best buy and talked to the Geek Squad. Umm, yea for geeks!!!! he believes he can retrieve all my photos and put them on a dvd. It should be done in about 4 days. He recommends that we dont continue to use that computer, LOL. i guess we used it till the very end. it's 5 3/4 yrs old. Ancient for computers. So now we are computer shopping. The guy had some really good ideas to get more bang for our buck, but he doesnt sell computers so someone else will have to help us. i hate computer shopping.

Chuck E Cheese

One of the officers at Bens work had his daughters birthday at Chuck E Cheese. It was Abbies first time, if you dont count when i was pg with her. Everyone had a great time.


This is our new bunny Beau. He is a Flemish Giant. He'll get to 15-18 pounds. He is just a baby now. He'll be to big for a traditional cage so he has a pet pen and Codys babybath is his bed. He is great. He has gotten use to the house and hops around our den. The kids love him and he'll play with them ( run away from the kids) I need to decorate his cage with some chew toys. it looks so plain.

kaitlen has gone 2 nights with no diaper and no wetting. Several nights i was forgetting to put one on her and waking up at 5 realizing it and then putting it on her. When i completely forgot and she didnt wet i figured she was peeing in her diaper after she woke up. so now to work on Matthew who was pretty much potty trained when i went to my moms but when i got back freaks out now if he doesnt have a diaper on. Im VERY sure Ben put him back in diapers :o/ while i was gone. Im sure me leaving him for a week didnt help. It will be so nice to only change diapers on one baby.

How the Abbinator falls asleep in her swing

Thomas' room

Its not completely done, but its done for now.

He wants to be a firefighter as a career. He'll take his EMT classes when he graduates HS and then test for Firefighter when he's 21. So i went with a fire/ firefighter theme, because im a theme-y person. So the brick wall (which is not done, needs 3 more rows at the bottom) is supose to be the outside of a building and the flame curtains are a "fire" and im going to put gray smoke above the window to the ceiling when i feel crafty enough to do it. so it'll be a place on fire. Since his bed is a queen and his room is small i had to take his closet door off (though i may switch cody/matthews bed which is a full with Thomas' queen (Thomas' bed is Betty and Bills original bed- Bens parents)and maybe there will be more room in his room). im going to make a pretty cool curtain, i just need to find the time.
The rest of the walls are for thomas' to put up what he wants.

big foot!!!!!!!

Geez. We went to sears to look at shoes for Cody and i figured i better measure his foot. At the end of the school yr he wore a size 3 so I thought for certain i was doign something wrong when his foot measured a 5!!!. I even measured my foot to make sure i was doing it right. I was. He has been wearing Crocs all summer and they run large so i never noticed his foot grew so much. Thomas was easy, he's been a 13 for the last 3 yrs. I ordered his offline. He's actually been wearing his school shoes which was a huge no-no growing up in our house.


Little miss Abbie was standing about the middle of the couch and before we knew it she had made it to the end off the couch were her toys were. I really hope she's at least 10 or 11 months before she starts walking. Thomas walked at 9 months and i would really like a little bit longer, LOL.

Mean Daddy

Yesterday i changed the batteries in Abbies swing and she was holding one and I let her keep it. I went back to my work and Ben was holding her on the couch. She starts screaming. Turns out she wacked herself in the mouth with the battery (size D) and she looked at Ben screaming. She thought HE did it. He had to give her to me. So after dinner we are sitting on the couch and she looked at Ben and started crying AGAIN. She hadnt forgot that *HE HIT HER WITH A BATTERY* poor baby and poor Ben. Today all was good and she must have forgiven daddy, LOL

cafe mom
