My Girls Part 2 Rosie

 Dogs, think they are Human and Cat's think they're God!
Well this is my other baby, Rosie. She's not actually a baby. She's 9 1/2 years old. I refer to her a "Momma" because she's old enough to be my mom in cat years. She's very laid back, and happy go lucky except when you pick her up. Then all hell breaks loose.  She absolutely hates being picked up. No matter what! I don't know why. I've picked her up since she was a kitten!  Is that normal for cats?
But on the plus side, she has definitely mellowed out and become more affectionate with age. She loves her belly rubbed! She always has a smile and a meow for me when I come home-no matter what kind of day I've had.
Rosie and Sophie are as different as night and day but that's ok. I wouldn't have it any other way!

7 Quick Takes For Friday...I mean Saturday!

1. I am feeling much better today. My sinus infection is finally on the mend. You'll never believe what did it. Apple Cider Vinegar. I am not normally a fan of home rememdies but a friend told me about it and it really works. You can find out more about the health benefits of apple cider vinegar here.

2. It's finally stopped raining here. It rained for 3 days this week and they are saying rain for most of next week. To bad there arent' any fish in Lake Fleisher! :) LOL

3. Last night was first night of my Financial Peace University Class. It teaches you how to live a life of financial peace. An oxymoron right? I thought so too at first but what Dave Ramsey has to say really makes sense. Here's what his website says about the class. Financial Peace University (FPU) is Dave's life-changing program that teaches you to achieve your financial goals by eliminating debt, saving for the future, and giving like never before. More than 1 million families have attended FPU with amazing results. You will be challenged and motivated to make a plan for your money and change your family tree forever!

4. My nephews wedding is a little over a month away. My parents, sister as well as my aunt and uncle are coming to stay with us for the wedding. So I've started cleaning and decluttering the house. Why do I always wait so late to get started.

5.  Work is still slow to nill. I've been averaing about 3 and 1/2 days of work per two week pay period. Not much but I am holding on to the fact that I know God will take care of us. Yet still sometimes I worry and stress about it. I wonder if I will every get to that point in my faith where I completely trust God.

6. Our church kicked off our Relay for Life team this past Sunday. We are going to "Lick Cancer". So we are selling lollipops as our main fundraiser for the relay. If you'd like to make a donation or join our team go to and click on the donate button and then choose the Redeemer Lutheran Church team. Thank you so much for your support.

7. I didn't mean to spend so much time on the above post. 
8. Thankfull  that I do not live up north. My parent's have had snow all this week and they are expecting more snow in the coming week. I will take rain and wind over snow any day! 

9. I want the Saints to win the Super Bowl. The Colt's have been to the Super Bowl before and the Saints haven't. Besides, I am Southern girl and I want a Southern team to win

10. I will not be watching the Super Bowl. My TV doesn't pick up that channel and we do not have cable or satellite. Besides, I only like the commercials and I can watch them without the football interruptions on

Hey guys! I just wanted to let everyone know I'm taking a break from blogging. I have a sinus infection and I'm not feeling well at all. I am going to concentrate on feeling better. As soon as I'm better I'll be back to blogging.

My Girls Part 1

I have two girls. Each as different as night and day. That is to be expected though-escpically when they are a cat and a dog. . Today I am going to blog about Sophie. I will blog about Roise later this week.
I have a miniature daschund and her name is Sophie Sue. She is a little over four years old and has a personality all her own.
She's not a "dady's dog" nor a "mommy dog." She's the happiest when we are both home. In fact, her favorite place is to sit with her front paws on me and her back paws on her dad. She hates being cold but  refuses to wear her doggie clothes for more than a few seconds.  She loves to give kisses! I swear that she thinks a kiss will solve any problem in the world!

She has been such a God send. He knew we needed her! She can make me laugh or comfort me. She loves to be a lap dog. She thinks she's the Queen and guardian of the house. Unfortunately, the Queen does not eat unless we are both home.I think she worries that we are not going to come home to her! Why wouldn't we? I've heard speration anxiety is a daschund thing but I am not sure.   She loves to burrrow and play-espcially if you say the word outside!.  She's able to get all of her toys out of her toy box but never manages to put them pack. I'm still trying to teach her that one! She's had so many fun adventures since she's joined our family. I can't wait to share the next one with you.
