My Poor Abandoned Blog - Five for Friday

          I decided it was time to quit procrastinating and get to blogging! It's  not like I have a life that keeps me terribly busy...I just have not any desire to do anything in the blogging world.  Does that ever happen to anyone else?

          Anyways, I decided to link up Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday. I'll try not to bore you too much!

I am trying to recover from surgery that I had a last week.  These 3 little ones have been my constant company during that time.   There is never a dull moment when the puppy is awake!!  I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture or not, but  Samson (4 months old) is sitting on top of Shadow. This of course creates issues with Dingo (Grandpa) and then he starts his annoying barking. After a few minutes the cuteness kinda wears off and I have to get my handy little squirt bottle out. Works miracles let me tell ya!  I don't even have to use it most of the time.  hahaha

I'm still in shock from getting this in the mail a few days ago. You would think they would be courteous enough to wait a week or so before attempting to put you in shock!  I'm convinced they have made a BIG mistake.

My stack of school stuff has not went down one little bit since I brought it home a couple of weeks ago!  Time is, however, running out!  Grade Cards are due Monday!  They are right on top...surely I can accomplish that in the next few days!  

I am so blessed by my friends and family.  They have provided meals for my husband I ever since my surgery.  It started with BBQ from my bestest teacher buddy and it still continues.  My refrigerator runneth over.  I would show you pictures of all the food...but it would take too long.  Trust me... we never wanted for a meal.    

Last, but certainly not the least important thing that happened to me this week was being contacted by Oriental Trading.  In the near future I will be reviewing some of their Mother's Day products.  They even mentioned providing $$ for a giveaway on my blog!  That brought a bit of sunshine into my week.   Check our some of their Easter freebies have by clicking the picture.

Okay, that took longer than I expected and it totally wore me out.  I'm going to take a short nap before attempting to get out of this recliner.  

See you at the Linky Party!

    1. Thank you! I have a bunch of catching up to do. :-)

  2. I had a little surgery in February. I'm still waiting for all my bills. I surely do hope yours is a mistake. In the meantime, rest up! :)

    1. Thanks Tammy! Hope you are completely recovered!

  3. I can totally relate to the pile of stuff to do! I have a huge pile too and it never seems to go down!!

    Hope you get plenty of rest and feel better soon!


    1. Isn't that the truth about piles. I seriously need to get to work on this one though. I'm getting better every day!

  4. I'm thinking about you! I wish you a quick recovery. Glad to know you have some cuties keeping you company!
