A lot has been happening around here! Last week we had our first initial home visit for Foster Care. I actually remained really calm and did not stress out about it. It went really well! Our case workers name is Angie. She is really sweet. She had us give her a tour of our home and then explained all of the paperwork and procedures that we needed to complete before the classes start. :)

Saturday was Tedd's Birthday. He has been wanting a grill FOREVER. We've never had one since we've been married. So last week I snuck to Lowe's after work and bought him a grill. I also bought him a grill brush. I boxed and wrapped the $2 grill brush and left it out the entire week lol. Then on his birthday he was not expecting a grill :) He was super excited, and he's been cooking on it a ton since Saturday!
Also last week, this little man joined the Miller Family. Tedd named him Calvin. He's a toy poodle. He originally came from a puppy mill ( :( poor guy!) but I got him from a rescue. Getting a dog was the absolute LAST thing on my mind. But when I saw him I instantly fell in love. He has an old injury to his left front leg, which is why the puppy mill gave him up. So he has a funny limp but he doesn't mind at all and it sure doesn't slow him down! He's confined to the kitchen and laundry room until he's 100% potty trained. We're getting a lot of laughs from him lately!
Here he is thinking he's being a big help decorating for Tedd's birthday LOL

And to give you an idea of just how small he is, here's apic of him in Tedd's lap. He's now over 2 lbs. I don't have a clue how big he will be...but I know that it will still be little!



Now off to get things done so I can relax for a few hours on my day off! Have a good week!

This weeks randomness....

So another week has gone by and its been another crazy one lol.


Its really been a pretty good week at work for me. The most exciting part is that my boss let me order some parts for the dental machine that will make my life a lot easier! After getting off work 1.5 hrs late today I came home and went for a walk. While on my way up a giant hill, a client called my cell phone. I ended up having to go back into work.

Tedd had a pretty good week at work too. We are still having a pay issue with the army. He's working hard to improve his PT score.

And for the randomness!
This has been the kind of week where:


  • Tedd has tried to buy two grills and both attempts have ended unsuccessfully

  • A person I was speaking with, actually used this as a sentence: "Yes you am"

  • We completely rearranged furniture

  • We added outlet covers, cabinet locks, and a locked medicine box to our house preparing for foster care

  • I realized that I have never learned to fold a fitted sheet

  • Trixie Rabbit has literally kept us up at night multiple nights

  • our "living quarters" were supposed to be inspected...and no one ever showed up....

  • I put the same dirty plate through the dishwasher 3 times before I accepted the fact that I would have to handwash it lol

  • we had to sort through 2 moves worth of paperwork(yes that is a measurement lol) to find everything we need for our taxes

  • I almost got hit by a kid on scooter while walking today

  • This morning I came out to realize Tedd had left the back door open

  • This Sunday is the Superbowl? Who knew?

  • A friend from church and I found each other in the card isle at Wal-mart. We ended up having a good belly laugh about some cards for at least 15 minutes :)

I'll put up an actual post sometime soon lol
