On Your Mark...Get Set...Go!

Monday, October 11, 2010. I'm not sure what this blog will morph into this time but I've missed writing. Here are a few of my recent favorite things.

The Llamas (Dolly, Tony and Baracko) in my new office at CCPC:

A spunky pink centerpiece at my first Junior League of Plano event since I returned to the metroplex:

A cookie bouquet from my BFF Kelly to welcome me home:

Wake Up Momma!

Thursday, April 29, 2010 I want to play but the Momma is asleep. I'm a very patient doggie. No, I'm not-WAKE UP KISSES!!!

"Always Give More than You Take"

Wednesday, March 31, 2010.

I've been thinking a lot lately about my Dad and the last really long conversation we had before he died. Given all that I've forgotten in life, I'm so thankful for my memories of that afternoon.

"Legacy" by Nichole Nordeman

I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me
And I enjoy an accolade like the rest You could take my picture and hang it in a gallery
Of all who's who and so-n-so's that used to be the best At such'n'such ... it wouldn't matter much
I won't lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights
We all need an 'Atta boy' or 'Atta girl'
But in the end I'd like to hang my hat on more besides the temporary trappings of this world

I want to leave a legacy
How will they remember me?
Did I choose to love?
Did I point to You enough to make a mark on things?
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace who blessed your name apologetically
And leave that kind of legacy

I don't have to look too far or too long awhile
To make a lengthy list of all that I enjoy
It's an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile
Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon enough destroy
Not well traveled, not well read, not well-to-do or well bred

Just want to hear instead, "Well Done" good and faithful one...

Dang Momma!

Monday, March 1, 2010. Leroy, "Dang Momma! I'm just takin' a little nap with your sock monkey. I don't know why you are so uptight about this. You can take a nap with my sock monkey if you like. As a matter of fact, I think you could USE a nap!"

Friday, January 8, 2010. Leroy Earl here! Every year on December 24 an unfortunately dressed obese man breaks into our house and leaves stuff. SERIOUSLY! He's real! I can't make this stuff up. It's always on the same night and since it's kinda creepy I stay extra close to The Momma on that day. But boy oh boy! On the 25th (which also happens to be Christmas) I'm so excited to go see what the guy left. It's always something good and he never comes back for it. This year, we all got Sock Monkeys! Fred and I also got some squeaky toys and yummy treats.

So, be careful on December 24 in case the guy decides to come to your house this year-and enjoy the spoils on Christmas morning!

Deep Thoughts from a Shallow Well Part 2

Wednesday, January 6, 2010. The Momma had a tough day yesterday so I snapped into "Therapist Leroy" mode and set out to improve her mental health.

As soon as she got home she took me and my brother Fred for a long walk. I was very careful not to make poopy while we were out. When we got home she went to change clothes. While she was changing, I went into the kitchen a laid a stinker. Worked like a charm! It took her mind completely off of her bad day. Maybe it was too much poopy. Maybe it was too stinky. Something went terribly wrong with my plan. Sure she wasn't thinking about her bad day anymore but...she was REALLY mad at me.

After she picked up the poopy and cleaned the floor she went in the living room and sat down on the couch. I jumped up beside her, made a pathetic face and barfed.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Who could stay angry with a sick puppy? The Momma forgot about her bad day AND the fact that she was ever angry with me.

Good work, Therapist Leroy. That will be $150 please.
