Seven Wonders

Fleetwood Mac

So long ago
Certain time
Certain place
You touched my hand
All the way
All the way down to emmiline
But if our paths never cross
Well you know I’m sorry but
If I live to see the seven wonders
Ill make a path to the rainbows end
Ill never live to match the beauty again
The rainbows end

So its hard to find
Someone with that kind of intensity
You touched my hand I played it cool
And you reached out your hand for me
But if our paths never cross
Well you know I’m sorry but
If I live to see the seven wonders
Ill make a path to the rainbows end
Ill never live to match the beauty again
The rainbows end

So long ago
Its a certain time
Its a certain place
You touched my hand and you smiled
All the way back you held out your hand
If I hope and I pray
Ooh it might work out someday
If I live to see the seven wonders
Ill make a path to the rainbows end
Ill never live to match the beauty again
The rainbows end

If I live to see the seven wonders
Ill make a path to the rainbows end
Ill never live to match the beauty again

If I live to see the seven wonders
Ill make a path to the rainbows end
Ill never live to match the beauty again

13 Things~Patch Update

(Patch is my 11 year old dalmatian that has been “sick” for the last four months. Please read my Dogs Page to catch up on the history. He went to the Vet last Thursday and this is the update)

  1. Yearly Shots: Patch got his yearly shots
  2. Dental Work: He didn’t get his teeth/mouth cleaned because he had a slight fever and his blood work didn’t look to good.
  3. WBC: His WBC (white blood cell count) was high
  4. Anemic: Patch is anemic at this time-I can see it in him now: white lips & gums
  5. Weight:Patch weighed 58 pounds. He has lost 10 pounds since this started-but the Doc feels he should lose weight to help out the arthritis in his legs & back. The bad part is he has flabby places-lol.
  6. Bath-Nails-Flea & Tick Treatment: Patch did get his bath, nails trimmed, and his Revolution treatment. I told Doc C that I would just purchase Revolution monthly now-since I didn’t know what the future held for Patch . Doc C said this medicine had to be bought in bulk. I said, “hhhhmmmm I guess I could find someone that uses it and pass it on if I needed to”. He said, “I use it”. LOL
  7. Lab Work: Doc C had some more tests ran. He still thinks it could be a tick bourne related disease. He ran a test for canine ehrlichiosis. He said that even if the first test is negative, it is good to do a second test in case the first was a false negative. The biopsy of the lymph node suggested this, but said that correlation of the patient history and other findings ruled this out. Doc C also mentioned Cushings Disease and had more tests sent off for this.
  8. Meds: Doc C put Patch back on Tetracycline and he is now on Etodolac for pain. We also have Tresaderm drops to put on the sores on his ears-they are back. He has shown major improvement (not shaking) until today??
  9. Results: Patch is on the above medicine for 10 days and hopefully the results from all of the lab work will be in this Monday or Tuesday.
  10. Going back: Patch will go back for his dental work (we think this will help in some way-at least clear out all of that bacteria) after his results come back-hopefully.
  11. Walks:Patch has been limping terribly on & off all week.
  12. Car Rides: Patch’s favorite thing. For a week and a half Patch didn’t go for any rides except the one to the V-E-T. 🙂 He finally went for a ride yesterday and today-yippee! 🙂
  13. Price of Vet Visit: $355. Price of Patch’s unconditional love: Priceless!
(For some reason, I haven’t been able to bring myself to do this update sooner and I know I didn’t do a thorough job for myself-jut so much)

Ten Things Tuesday

This meme is hosted by XBOX WIFE


It’s “Ten Things Tuesday”, and that means it is time to put your on your happy face, and share your ten things for which you’re thankful for today!! And if your happy face is hiding? Make your list anyway, and just see if it doesn’t make an appearance!

Ten Things Tuesday #2

  1. Patch jumped on his bed: I am thankful that Patch (my 11 year old dalmatian that has been sick for 4 months-read my Dogs page for more stories) jumped up on his bed (Grandpa’s bed) today. He hasn’t been on his bed in a week and a half! He could only make it on his ottoman-sometimes needing help!
  2. Patch went for a ride: I am thankful that Patch got into his car today and went for a ride even though Jedd let him poop and guess who had to clean it up. Thank goodness he is on plenty of cheese for his meds-good solid stuff-TMI-lol! Anywho~car rides are his FAVORITE thing to do and he has only been on one to the V-E-T in the last week and a half!
  3. Etodolac: Pain medicine for Patch. I believe we have found the right med for Patch at this time. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication. We now believe that he is in pain and it isn’t anxiety. The last med the Doc put him on made him sick (Cipro). Doc said 1 in 3 dogs can’t take it. Patch is one of those three-lol!
  4. Rain: I am so thankful for the rain we are receiving right now and have been for two days! We had such a drought last year and are still trying to catch up!
  5. Birds Chirping: I love the sound of birds chirping-if I am not trying to sleep-hehe! It is a sign of life and new growth-Spring is here!
  6. Spring Break: I am thankful for Spring Break right now. I am getting a lot of stuff done-blogging-lol! I have posted 5 posts today and one more to go-hehe! I am getting a necessary break from the classroom and the children are getting a necessary break from the classroom too!
  7. Dad gets a job: I am so thankful that my Dad is finally working after almost two years. I just hope he sticks with it. He has been working quite a lot since he started last week. *kneeling to pray for dad*
  8. My cousin Sarah: I am so thankful and proud of my cousin, Sarah. She has been on a mission for the last year to become more self-sufficient for her and her child. She has enrolled in beauty school and is doing great!
  9. Blogosphere: I am so thankful for my blog and my blog buddies. Sometimes I believe that my friends are really in my computer. I really appreciate the visits I get and the kind words I receive! I love to visit others too! I feel like I “know” a lot about my blog buddies! *hugs to all*
  10. Animal Shelters: I am thankful for animal shelters all around for the hard work they do to save animals’ lives! I will be assisting the local animal shelters in the near future for our Service Learning Project. Stay Tuned!

Things That Need Fixin’ Up Around Here

10 Things I Would Fix In My Home

(if I had the time and money…and I owned the house-lol)

  1. No carpet. I would remove all of the carpet in this house and have wood floors. I’ve had both and no carpet is much more sanitary-especially with pets.
  2. Electricity: The electrical outlets in this house need some major updating-I believe it is the original and I only have 2 outlets that include the 3 prong plug-great!
  3. Even floor: I believe the house has settled-duh!The floors sink in at places and need to be leveled.
  4. Drapes: I need some major window treatments (drapes, curtains, and valences) for the whole house. I just can’t bring myself to do it here.
  5. Trees: I wish I could cut down the 2 apple trees, the 2 pine trees, and the walnut tree. The stuff I have to pick up is such a hassle and the apples don’t turn out good anyway. I have plenty of other trees all over the yard. I like trees that are beautiful and only produce leaves that fall-lol!
  6. Outside: I have 1 and a 1/2 acres and I would love to have my back yard fenced in. Patch, my 11 year old dalmatian, would love this too.
  7. Multicolored walls: The walls in this house are multicolored shades of white, off white…The whole house needs to be re-painted professionally. Not paint here and there and plaster there and here-aahhhh!
  8. Open/Shut Doors: The whole house needs new doors to the rooms. The door handles are not secure and you might shut a door and never get back in-hehe. Plus the doors are the original and are tearing/pealing off which can cause splinters or be a danger for my dog, Patch.
  9. Vinyl Floor: My kitchen floor is the original 1970’s yellow floor, I’m sure of it. It has torn places everywhere and you can see the concrete directly underneath. My favorite color is yellow-but when I see my floor-I wanna barf-hehe! I need a new kitchen floor!
  10. Earth: The earth/ground outside needs leveling and holes need filled. It is a danger zone in many spots. I just avoid those places, because my feet don’t work well on stairs or in holes.

My house is really a great house for the price compared to most in my area, but this sums up what I really need to do: NEED TO MOVE!
