A bunch of random stuff...

The good...

Boy Oneder was confirmed on Tuesday. I can't believe how tall he is, how grown up he is and how stinkin' proud I am of him. Here is the letter I gave him just before we left for the church:

May 18, 2010

Dear Boy Oneder,

June 28th, 1996 at 5:23 pm is a moment in time that I will never, ever forget. It was the moment when every aspect of my life as I knew it would change. Nothing and no one could ever prepare me for the fear, excitement, pain, joy, sadness, happiness and pride that I would learn that very moment and every moment since. Nothing could ever compare to the love that I have in my heart for you.

Since the moment the doctor placed you on my chest, shivering and crying in a bright, cold, loud, scary world, you have filled my heart with pride. You represent everything that I have ever wanted in a son and more. You continue to amaze me and make me proud with your maturity, intelligence and responsibility.

I watched you take your first breath, I was there when you said your first word, I held your hand as you took your first step and I cried my heart out as I left you on your first day of school. Never in my life did I ever imagine I would have a son as wonderful as you. I don’t know what I ever did to deserve such an awesome child, but I thank God every day for the gift that is you.

Life, especially over the last few years, as you and your brothers get older, has been hectic to say the least. We never really get the chance to just sit and enjoy one another these days and that makes me sad. I 'm not sure if you know deep in my heart just how much I love you. I don't know if you realize that nothing you have ever done in your life has disappointed me. You have become a young man before my eyes and it seems like it happened overnight! It seems like yesterday that I rocked you in my arms and sang you lullabies. I wish I could find the words that describe how important you really are to me.

You are about to enter the most exciting, happy, scary and wonderful years of your life. You hold the world in your hands. There is nothing that you can't do. Each day will be an adventure, what you do with that adventure is your choice. I know that you will make the right one. There's so much more that life will bring you…so much happiness and some sadness....follow your dreams....follow your heart. Your heart is a good one and that is the true foundation of goodness.

As you are confirmed today, I wanted to take a moment to tell you how extremely proud I am of the young man you are becoming. I wanted to let you know that I love you with every ounce of my being and that there is nothing you could do to make me prouder. Keep on being Boy Oneder…for Boy Oneder is an amazing human being. Thank you for being that amazing human being. Thank you for being my son.

I love you.

The bad...

Rosie has to have surgery. When we took her for her annual check up last week, the doctor told me that two of her back teeth are very infected and would need to be the tune of $800 - $1,100.00. I was completely shocked and started to cry right there in the office, knowing that there was NO way Hubster would pay that kind of money. Hubster's philosphy has always been that if the treatment for an ailment costs more than putting her to sleep, she would be put to sleep. I frantically did some research, called around to other vets and had a lengthy discussion with Rosie's vet and, under extreme protest, Hubster is allowing me to have her operated on. Her surgery is scheduled for June 15th. Long story short, I simply can't put her to sleep for something as simple as two teeth. The vet will check all of her other teeth and will be instructed to extract any teeth that she suspects are going to become an issue.

The ugly...

Hubster's Uncle Tony is very ill. He has been in the hospital since last week after he fainted and is really in rough shape. He has been diagnosed with stomach cancer and has had 80% of his stomach removed in an operation a few days ago. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, three kids and their spouses.

This weekend is a long one...Victoria Day. I plan to get all my planting done, so I am hoping that the weather will cooperate! Lots of bouncers out this weekend too! Yippeee!!! Pin It
