Once again, I was in too big of a hurry and put my pictures in reverse order!! It drives me crazy and pushes me to tell the horrible story first...so here goes...
So... I've ran over 3 things in the past month. First I was parked at Matt and Jennifer Brooks house. They have two boys that Deci adores! She calls them "My Boys". Anyways, I had to move my car into the yard. Me and Jenn left to go to Wal-mart in her car. An hour or so later I got back to get Deci and leave and when I did I ran over one of the boys bikes. It really didn't mess anything up too bad. Next I ran over Deci's Red Waggon that she got for her birthday last year from Q's dad. I cried when I ran over this one. I had to call Q to come home to help me get it out from under the car. It was smushed! Luckily it popped back into place...somewhat. The wheels were really messed up but Pop's is working on that and it will be close to good as new in no time...well...close enough.
Ok, this next one is hard for me to talk about and probably hard for some of you to read. Saturday morning Q told me that he left his keys at work and that I was going to have to take him to work. I had just got out of the shower so my hair was wet. He had to be there in 15 minutes so he was rushing me. (I blame all this on him...just so I feel a little better) So, we rushed out into the 40 degree weather with wet hair. Usually I put Deci in the Car and then get in myself and the Kitten, Socks, runs up on the porch when I crank the car.... do you know where this is going... Anyways, this morning we were hurrying and so I jumped in cranked the car. Q put Deci in the car seat all the while Socks was right beside Q's feet outside the door. He picked Socks up and tossed it towards the porch and jumped in the car where I backed up... Then Q noticed what I had done. Socks had ran back towards the car without us noticing. It was horrible! Words cannot express what I felt at that moment. I cried the whole way to drop Q at work. Not because I was attached to the cat yet because to be honest I wasn't yet but just for the fact because I was so frustrated about having to get out in the cold with wet hair and that Q had left his keys at work that I didn't slow down and think about what I was doing. Also the fact that it was Deci's first pet. She has only asked for him once since and I told her that he went bye bye to go find some friends. Anyways, that was a long story but here is my farewell picture of Socks.
Carving Pumpkins with Kerrie and Wade.
This is a picture I took after Kerrie gave me some simple advice about my camera. She just got a new Nikon camera that's better than mine but similar. Well, lets just face it...a lot of cameras have this option but I had no idea! I'm camera illiterate! I don't have a manual with my camera and I really could use one. Well, this picture was taken with the switch/dial set on the flower picture. That way when you take a picture of something up close (like a flower) the background is out of focus. I was excited to learn something new. It doesn't take much!
