Weekend howls

As I mentioned last week, I got to dog-sit Misti's two Chihuahuas, Sophie and Sammi.

And, well...I think Sophie explains it best. Note that Superdog is beside her, wondering what the heck was going on!

I hope Sophie wasn't traumatized by her experiences at the Super household...

...In other news...

* I found an old classmate on facebook. Yeah, I know, pretty much everyone does, but...I'm not always fond of finding old classmates. However, I saw M and thought, "Hmmm...I liked her in high school. She wasn't crazy. I'll add her." (Yes, this is seriously how my mind works.) So I did, and I got a message from her:

"Hey, did I go to high school with you?"

WOOOAAAHH!!! Talk about a blow to your ego!! Feeling letdown, I responded, "Yeah. My maiden name was *THIS*. I was a grade below you."

She responded and added me this morning. "I thought that was you! You look great!"

So my ego is inflated once again...

Also, closing prayer requests. My Aunt Linda lost her husband on Friday. My heart just breaks for her and her family. He died from a heart attack, in his sleep, but, as Aunt Linda put it, "I've lost my best friend." Pray for her, and pray for the family of a 20-year-old, Terry. Terry was one of my mom's students way-back-when and died in a one-car crash on his way to work last Sunday. It was a very horrific death, and one of my friend's father's had to witness it, while powerless to do anything to save Terry. So be in prayer for that family as well.

To end it on a slightly happy note, tomorrow is my final!!! I'm nervous because, well, I mean, it IS a test, but I'm super excited that I get about a month off (maybe more...we're working on a different "outlook" with my school -- more on that when I have info -- keep us in your prayers that God opens the right doors or keeps me on the path I'm headed if that's in His will). I plan to read everything UNRELATED to school -- starting with this fabulous book. Has anyone else read it? Going to see the movie?

What are you doing this weekend?

I am sad b/c I couldn't get the video to play!! :(

I had someone ask to be my friend on FB...had NO idea who they were..at all! turns out we graduated in the same class!!! And I thought I knew just about everyone in my class! ha!

Yea, for your final test!

my book club read the book. I thought it was good, but kept wondering where it was going. We are all going to see the movie together!

Love the video. Cracked me up.

FB friends ... I have the same trouble remembering people or adding people who were not really my friends in real life.

And, when I told Beau I wanted to see the movie, he rolled his eyes. I'm going to see it for sure. He'll probably fall asleep soon after it starts. He likes stuff that blows up and stupid humor.

Superman is SO MEAN to those poor little dogs! :)

Funny video! Made me laugh :) I'll pray for your Aunt Linda and for Terry's family. Very sad.

Mari said...

That was a noisy video - it got our cat going!
Hooray for finishing your class! I'll be praying for your aunt.

May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard their hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

That video is waaay funny! Loved it!

Ginger said...

That is too funny, a dog named Sophie. I love it. Especially since people are known to name their dogs Ginger... ha! How nice is that?! On to your prayer requests, I am so sorry to hear of the loss you have mentioned and pray His peace will follow. I know you will do well on your final, as well as in future decisions.

Trusting in His direction w/you,

Rachel @ Unexpected Blessings said...

Wow! That doggie video was crazy. Were they like that all the time or just occasionally?

I have not read that book the movie looks interesting.

Hope all goes well/has gone well with your final! Enjoy your time off!

Prayers for everyone mentioned in your post. The best prayer I know is just for hearts to heal, as best they can and for peace to surround them as they do.
Good luck on your test! I have a final tomorrow to- it's a take home final so I will be working on that over the weekend (not all that fun, but can't wait to be done!)

So excited for you to be able to read something not school related!!
