Sunday Stealing: Fill in the Blanks
It's always nice when the sun is shining and the birds are singing.

Oh, that nasty.

It's a sure sign of Spring when more and more birds and bunnies are hanging out in my yard .

Are we having burgers again??!.

My heart is still beating.

Do you believe in life after love? I do!

I'm a mother, fur-baby Mama, sister, aunt, grandma and wife.

I was at the doctor last week for my back and knee. I am tired of being in pain.

People and pets seem to be a bit crazy when the moon is full.

When we get there, wake me up.

A bowl of cereal for dinner is the best!

Underneath it all no one gives a damn.

Oh! And thanks for the chocolate.

And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to resting and relieving some of the pain in my back, tomorrow my plans include not doing anything and Sunday, I want to have dinner with my in-laws!

Spring Time In Wisconsin Means Yelling at Snow

Spring time in Wisconsin!!! Road construction in front of my house and snow.
Shelby really wants to go outside and yell at the snow and the road construction crew.
I didn't let her outside to yell at the snow and the road construction crew.
So, she decided to yell from inside the house!
