a good day

Last night a marine we know stopped me on my walk and asked me if I needed a ride. I told him, that I was walking for exercise. Sowe went back to the house so he could park his truck and he walked with me. I finally asked him what he was doing up at our place in the middle of the week. He started to cry and said " my grandmother had a stroke and dont expect her to pull of it. I just needed to get away".

So we finished our walk and then he hung out with us the rest of the night. It is nice to know that we are soft place to land for people when they need it. I dont know if we helped him, but we fed him dinner and just bull shited all night.

Today I realized that Ryan will be done with his second grade math book this week and starting  third grade math next week. That puts him only one year behind in math! We have made up so much ground. I guess we really have shown the system what a special needs child can do if the standard in raised.

I watched an awesome movie today called "Something the Lord made" It was about the doctors at Johns hopkins who figured out how to operate on the heart. It was an awesome movie and I recommend it to anyone.

Rusty did not go down and lay into Hazel. We talked about it, but he is going to do it the right way. Rusty is also getting very......well he is seeing all of the negitive people. We found out who our friend were. People that live near us could not pick up the phone and call, yet our friend in Italy called us everyday!

I need to go on my walk. I dont feel like, but I know that I have to do it. Walking is a good stress reliever for me and it is good for my heart. So I am off to walk and to get rid of the stresses of the day.

Today I am thankful for a day with my boys.

This Hazel sounds like a real inbred loser.  Like she should be on the Jerry Springer show or something.  Is she 300lbs with no teeth?  I think my grandma had a dog named Hazel.  
    It's good that you're walking so much Kelli, it makes your dolphins (endorphins) happy!  Plus, it keeps you from laying in your bed and getting depressed.  Keep pounding that pavement.  With every step, turn your anger into excitement!
