"I dream of a time when I have all my children together again, when past wrongs are made right. I dream of a day when schools have everything they need - when teachers can concern themselves with educating instead of politics.
I dream that my 11yo daughter will be able to go through school without worrying about others commenting on her size, or her inherited psoriasis. And that my 12yo son will realize that thinking before acting will make all the difference in ensuring that he does not repeat the mistakes of his father.
I dream that I will be able to get a job - a good job - like I used to have before I took on the position of Mommy. That employers will see the potential instead of the years that have passed. That they will give me the chance to show just how much I can do for their company or organization given the opportunity. And I dream that I'll be able to once again take care of my family properly. "

I do have more to say on the topic (among other topics), but I'll have to do that later. Right now, I must shower and go run a few errands for my own darling. I believe I'll do some dedicated blogging upon my return. So long as nothing shiny distracts me.

I need to get yarn and such. Well, get it together at least. Nice thing is, this is a casual trip. Comfy clothes, nothing fancy. Important things to take: Laptop, MP3 player, Knitting stuff. Contacts. Glasses. Cell phone. Camera and battery charger. TurboFire stuff. Shouldn't take more than my laptop case, my purse, and one other bag for clothes and such. Taking the train, fewer issues.
I really need this vacation. Hopefully I'll come back refreshed, renewed, ready to tackle the world. Or at least get the pesky necessities out of the way. Yeah.
Wow. I can't wait.

Some days are happy. Some sad. Some just sort of “there”. All the days, they linger and mingle and merge into a vague recollection of the past, and a faint hope of the future. Days don’t feel like days anymore… the passage of time blurs and the edges merge into one long series of events. Time courses and curves and just goes along without any concern for what is happening in the process. And I… I drift along with it.

- Jackson (Jax) Jackie
- Fartbomber (Philip's favorite)
He seems to like "Marco", but that would undoubtedly lead to other children screaming Polo and Much Confusion would ensue.
We continue the search.
He is a 5 month old Catahoula Leopard Dog mixed with who knows what. Possibly Husky. His left eye is blue, his right is brown. Very cool to look at. He was adopted from the Osceola County Animal Shelter in Reed City. They didn't have a name picked for him yet though, as he had JUST become available for adoption. This is manageable, right? I mean, 4 kids, one adult, we can figure this out.
We can't settle on a name.
So I'm posting a crapton of pictures of him here, and asking for assistance.
So far suggestions have been:
- Stupid (hey, he answered to it)
Here are the pictures...
So there's the puppy and the problem. Can't wait to hear the suggestions.
