Let’s see my last post was on September 12, and I was apologizing for no longer blogging regularly and I put in a side note that Abi had started talking and Scott had gotten a job. It is now October 2, wanna know what has happened since then… Are you sure?!

LOL oh here it goes, you asked for it!

Indeed Abigael is talking again, just not to everyone just yet. As of now she will only speak to Jacob, her dad, Granny, Alvin and myself. As soon as she senses the presence of someone else, she shuts up like a clam and Jacob seems to be the only one who can get her back to talking. For those of us that she does talk to she just picked up where she left off she whispers, sings and has God forbidden tantrums in which she can scream to high heaven and back.. LOL I love her beautiful voice, just wished it was beautiful all the time! She is slowly starting to make noises around everyone else, which leads me to believe that someday soon everyone will hear this little angel!

Yes Scott did have a new job. A really good job too. But unfortunately he let the devil get into that thick skull of his and he quit,3 weeks in and he just walked away. But that is OK, well it’s not OK but what is done is done and there ain’t nothing I can do about it now! I screamed, I hollered, I threatened, I cried, I beat him with a yard stick, but non of that got his job back nor did it make me feel all that much better…Maybe I should have tried a bat?!

After all this we sat down like grown ups and had a little talk. He is going to get another job and we are going to reinvent our marriage. Although we thrive on routines, there are places that they don’t belong and a marriage is one such place. Over the past 9 years we have just figured out what works and kept doing that. And well our little rut is boring and not helping matters! So we through our the rule book and are changing things up.

Oh yea and in the past week I have been attacked by a bird, a stuffed monkey posed as a rat and a snake! LOL Ok I will tell more! Somehow, don’t know how and really don’t care how, a small brown thrasher managed his way into my house and into my bedroom. After about an hour of trying everything I could think of to rid myself of the sign of death in my bedroom. I through in the towel ran in got its attention and let it chace me all the way outside. I can still feel that mean lil booger on my back!

The stuffed monkey posed as a rat attacked me that very same night… OK OK it didn’t attack me, but it did scare the bejeezus out of me LOL. so here I am still visibly shaken by the bird attack that afternoon and trying to manage to still get a few things done. So I make my rounds and end up in Abi’s room turning down beds and laying out her clothes for the next day. When out of the corner of my eye I spot a good-sized white rat under her bed. I start freaking out cause I know she has no rat like toys. Scott comes running to the rescue and immediately starts trying to get it out from under the bed, only one problem. He has no clue what he’s after cause he doesn’t see anything under the bed. I continue screaming and add a few mean comments because only Scott can miss a huge white rat under the bed! By this time Granny hears me and grabs her bat if it comes after her. Then my beautiful Abigael manages to stop laughing just long enough to whisper Mommy it’s just a stuffed monkey! What no way.. i can tell its a rat! Well call me a fool I don’t care but she bravely and against my will reached behind her bed and grabbed the rat by the tail, only to show that it was indeed just a stuffed monkey! LOL oops!

So OK the snake didn’t exactly attack me either, but it was very real and very alive! Today Scott and I managed to find a few minutes to watch some TV while the kids played outside. Well halfway through Patch Adams, Abi runs in and screams Mommy there is a snake! We jump up run outside, and yep.. The was a 2 ft long black snake making its way across the yard. OK not scared of a black snake so we just scooped it up in the sand bucket and through it back in the woods. But Thank God it was just a harmless black snake and that she had enough sense to come get us and not play with it!

Not exactly sure that this catches you up on everything, but apparently if you don’t blog for a few weeks you end up writing a book! I promise to at least try to start back to my daily blog agenda come next week.

Until then… I love you!
