Ding Dong The Witch is Dead...

Things have been crazy lately so I havent had much time to update this thing. I seem to always be swamped with school work! I hate school...I dont know why I decided to go back. I'm hoping it gets better or I get used to it. But so far that isnt the case. I was on the wait list for the CNA class that started Oct 16th and they decided to send me an email the 15th letting me know I got a spot and could register for it. However, I only had 12 hours to decide and I didnt check my email until after it was too late. Assholes! But whatever, I am registered to take it next semester anyway.

It's approx. a week and 4 days until the Marine Ball...oh joy joy. And instead of doing the usual which dress should I get bullshit like every other year, I am wearing the dress I wore for Emily's wedding. Its a really cute dress and it fits me better now than it actually did for her wedding. I still used dress shopping as an excuse to get anyway for a day though. And Katie and I went to St Louis to "dress shop". Which turned into trying on ridiculous and hideous dresses just for the hell of it and shoe shopping. It was a fun day until we got lost on the way home. We some how ended up on these creepy back roads in the middle of no where with nothing but corn fields around us. And it would have been fine it is wasnt like 10 at night. That's when things started getting scary. It probably didnt help that I've seen too many scary movies. I swear it was the classic horror movie scene though. Including cell phones losing reception and trucks showing up out of no where and trying to run us off the road! We somehow managed to make it home safely though.

As for Lyndon, he is getting way to big. And so bossy! Lately every thing that comes out of his mouth is follwed by 'right now!' Such as "get me a sippy cup, right now!". Of course, he doesnt get it. I dont play that game. I refuse to get him anything unless he says please mommy. My absolute favorite thing he says though is "I love you too much!" after I tell him I love him so much. It is soooo cute.

I'm still havent decided on a Halloween costume for him. I guess I am just being too picky. But considering Halloween is this weekend, I guess I should decide on something. He absolutely loves going to the Halloween store too. Everytime we get in the car he asks if we are going to there. He is obsessed with Halloween right now. He has such an imagination too...thank god! He walks around the house with boxes in his head saying really slowly in a monotone voice "Robot, robot" He is nuts!

Oh good news, we might be coming home for Thanksgiving! The hubby asked me yesterday if I wanted to cause he was thinking about taking leave. OF COURSE I DO!!! Like I would turn down a chance to go home! He even agreed to participate in my family events after I promised he wouldnt have to see a certain wicked witch (haha)! Hopefully his leave request gets aprroved and we get to. We shall see though.

Doggy Jail

Sometime Tuesday afternoon I put our demon dog, Icee outside on her runner. She doesn't go out there a lot but every now and then if she has been trapped up in the house for a while or just really on my nerves I put her on it. Well since the in-laws were here for the weekend, she had been locked up in her kennel quite a bit cause she just wouldn't settle down. So anyway, she had been out there for a few hours and I had went out to check on her every once in a while to make sure she was ok and not tangled around the tree or something. Around 4:30 maybe 5, I went out to get her. As soon as I walked around the garage I knew she was gone. I could tell by how her line was that she wasn't on it anymore. I then noticed a piece of her collar lying on the ground. She had the kind of collar that is loose on her until she pulls against it then it tightens. Great collar...except when you have a dog smart enough to realize she can chew that piece off and set herself free. Me and Lyndon then proceeded to walk to neighborhood looking for her until it started getting darker and pretty chilly. She was no where to be seen! When Clem got home, I made him ride around looking for her...no luck! We asked the neighbors if they had seen her and the guy next door said he had and he tried to grab her but she didn't have a collar one so he couldn't get a hold of her. Well thanks for walking next door and letting us know that earlier!!!!I was surprisingly worried about her that night. It was really cold and I just knew she had gotten in the creek down the road which means she would be a dog-sickle by morning. I tell her all the time to run away but I didn't really mean it. Well yesterday, I called Animal Control aka Doggy Jail to see if maybe they picked her up. I described her, and guess what! They picked her up the night before! Thank god! But since they were about to close and Clem had my car I couldn't go get her until this morning. So after making a trip to Walmart to buy a new collar like that one she had and a metal one for when she is on her line, I picked her up. She was so hyper and excited to see me and Lyndon...and to get out of that cage too I'm sure. She will be making a trip to the vet soon to be micro-chipped since she is an escape artist. She is home though and Lyndon couldn't be happier
