    I just chuckled at a thought - "They know how to wear me out very quickly!" - means "they've got your number". Don't you wish you could put them in the round pen and lunge them for a while? Haha Just kidding of course, but funny to visualize :)

The worst part for us was that my Step-Daughter works at Home Depot and was at work when the tornado hit. That building was flattened and seven people died there. One of those was right beside my Step-Daughter underneath a table. She had to crawl like a snake on her belly to get out. I personally knew 2 people in the total of those who lost their lives that day. We did live in Joplin before we moved out here to the country. The house we had in Joplin was in the direct path of the storm and demolished. When we have to go to town it is so depressing and mind boggling to see all the still very evident destruction that remains. It will take years for Joplin to fully recover.
    Just a picture of the destruction done by the F-5 tornado of May 22, 2011. In this area there were shopping strip malls and a skyline.

    I have been chuckling ever since I read this post of your's. I honestly think I was just a typical young child that only ocassionally could/would "push the wrong buttons" of my Mother. Well that and the fact I had a younger sister who was just 2 years younger than me and could make me so mad at times when we were growing up. I was often told to go pick my own switch from a bush in our front yard so I could get my punishment. The having to pick my Mother's "weapon" was far worse that the switching I got.

    By the Way, my younger sister and I are best friends now that we are Senior Citizens!!

    Summer break will be interesting, my two are 13 and 9 and they are going to have to fend for themselves while I work.....

    Wtg on he job. Cooking is not easy for all people and can be stressful when its busy. My daughter is a pastry chef and loves it.

    My son was the same way, but he has this one thing about him called competition lol I'm ashamed to admit but I used the heck out of it. When his older sister would come home with good grades I tell him about how good she did lol I didn't compare them I just bragged on her a lot the next thing I knew he was bringing them home too. I say stuff like your sister is so good at math, and bam there would come A's oh and I use the heck out of guilt too. He warned me that one of his high school math classes was really hard and he might get a low grade so he brought home a low progress report and I didn't do it on purpose but I was so shocked and kind of teared up worrying because I had convinced him to take this class and was feeling bad about it. The report card came home and he had a A lol I know its terrible

    My son is in college now and I sent him off to college with a lot of peace of mind that he would do well, and he has. I've told him about my wickedness too, lol. He was ok with it His attitude is why would anyone want to bring home bad grades.

    Susan, I agree! I had been going to a church I liked, and then politics took over when the husband-wife ministry team was booted out. The nasty people stayed, so I left, too. Began going to another church of the same denomination in a neighboring city where my brother goes. Just this year, politics happened there and more than half the congregation left! So heartbreaking. I feel it is very important to have a spiritual community for support. Presently, I guess that would be my horse people . They are mostly a very decent group.

    Sadly, that happened at the church we'd been attending here for years-there are literally only a handful of people that go there now, and we've decided we can't be a part of what's going on. But I will tell you, I feel so close to God every day which begins with reading my devotional and Bible over coffee before heading out to feed one of His glorious creations :)

    Had an exciting day so far...

    Been chatting with my dressage trainer, and she found quite possibly MY HORSE! A big, bay, Morgan mare. The horse transport she uses was somewhat close to the horse's location, so they are picking her up on their way back here and she will be in my trainer's barn by tonight! I am going to meet her tomorrow. I have her on trial for two weeks...but I have this feeling deep in my heart that this is the one. Everything I have learned about her was everything I was looking for. I am so excited to go meet her tomorrow I don't know that I will sleep tonight!
