I thought I better get these pictures posted as the fall sports have ended and we are going into basketball.
This is our little football star. He's the little orange guy closest to the camera. Do you know what he is doing. He is watching the quarterback to see where he is throwing the ball so he can catch it. He was really good at interceptions. He made the last couple of games pretty exciting.
These guys are my sons.
And here they are again. Oh to be 11 again. Such nice young girls.
Sunday as a birthday present my DIL was going to take me shopping. She had to cancel and then I had to cancel our rescheduled date today. (I have this bug that is just hanging on and it doesn't get better or worse. I have been getting dizzy. My chest feels tight. It's not a cold maybe bronchial asthma. I found my inhaler that hadn't expired, so I am trying that. Maybe I will call the doctor if that doesn't work.) Okay my DIL, the fitness nutrition one , wants me to get new shoes (what, no crocs), a fitted bra (hmmm, no sports bra, but they are so comfortable) and a new outfit.(I'm sure she means something that isn't comfortable) Anywhooooo.......I wanted to go to see the movie (I know, 2 in a month) "The Best of Me". As we are waiting to see if the Ebola virus spreads, if it does, I won't be going to the movies. We heard how sad it was. We didn't cry. But I did scream outloud and jumped out of my seat. Hubby said I was the only one acting like that. I doubt that. I have only done this one other time at the movie "Wait until Dark", many moons ago. But you have to factor in that I don't go to scary movies. That might be the reason why. It was a really good movie........not really scary, just one part.
After we returned home and were just about to go to bed, I get a phone call. Talk about a shock. It was my son's birth sister. This has nothing to do with him just finding his birth mom. He actually found this sister a couple years ago. She was told she didn't have a brother. I think I may have told you this story before. She was upset and wanting to know what I knew about her and her adoption. Her adopted mother said she didn't even know where she was born. Well K. (his sister) found the birth certificate and knew that was another lie. The lies went on and on. These all coming to her the past few years because didn't know before. She certainly was told things about our son that weren't the truth. I didn't say things about her mother just stated the facts. It was an hour long conversation, with her crying the entire time. I wanted to reach through that phone and love the little girl we had known and loved. She was promised to be a part of our lives. As soon as her parents adopted her we were not allowed to see her. Also about three years ago her adoptive father was murdered. I have mentioned that before as well. K. knows how to reach me but I don't know how to get ahold of her. She doesn't remember that we were close to her and probably not looking for a relationship. Once again, I see a little three year old that I want to protect. If she never calls again, I will be okay. I'd love to see her but she has to make that move. I don't get why educated people don't realize that this is 2014 and they can find things out easily. I might just be a tad bit afraid of what her mother might say or do to me. I am not joking.
Also, not joking, I am a little worried about another thing that happened. Not sure how to explain this. Someone that was sent to our house to do services by another company is under investigation. He was so nice. He also came back to see if everything was okay just a couple weeks ago when he was at the neighbor's house. That is the scary part. So since I haven't left the house all week, I am locking my doors.
Geez Louise. I don't have to even leave the house to get myself in trouble.
So sorry for what has happened in Canada. Another tragedy. So sad.
This is a long post for someone that never left the house, isn't it?
