this was the day i learned how much strength i really had. i had dealt with putting dogs to sleep before, but never have I had to make a decision like that one for onyx. she was healthy and young, but mentally unstable. although she was young at only 5 years old, she had always shown signs of aggresion. it had gotten to the point that we were not safe, nor were grayson or the other dogs. the decision to put her to sleep was not easy, but over time it became clear it was the only option. while we miss her daily, we really had no other options. i have learned to be at peace with my decision, and she will always be in our hearts.

Morning! Pinky here,
ok here is my link. I am battling a none winning battle with my sons school. my son does not learn like others and he struggles. I called to get a conference with his principal who was supposed to help me and she refused to talk to me and hung the phone up on me. I just am in a speachless frame of mind over this situation.

Paper Wishes is our sponsor this month, and they were generous enough to send prizes for our winners this month as well as product for the DT members to work with.
I totally fell in love with the Christmas Splendor line that was sent and had to make something with it the minute I got my hands on it. This is a paper bag mini album that I made using their paper. I actually made TWO identical mini albums with 8 pages total in each book with the paper that was in this pack. The mini album is made out of lunch paper bags. I initially had the brown ones that you get at the grocery store, but when I got this paper I actually bought some red ones at my local hobby store.
Im not going to post the whole album here, there are 16 total pages and a couple of tags that go along with this, but the few that I post will give you an idea of what the album looks like. Enjoy!

You know those conversations you overhear or the truth comes out and you see someone for who they really are. It's crushing sometimes and other times it is enlightening for sure.
When someone lies to you and you question why int he world they even lied?
When you walk in and find something you were never meant to see....it's all life...it happens.
Life is messy and dirty....go scrap it all!
Seriously?! How could you keep something so important from me?!
Here’s a secret for you. For about 17 years, I’ve known and I’ve been waiting for you to trust me, for you to believe in me, for you to tell me yourself.
I knew for sure that something was up. You thought I didn’t know but I did. It’s a wife’s intuition; we feel it in our souls. Looking back I don’t know what made me look in your bag. I shouldn’t have snooped but I had to find out. My world spiraled out of control with I found those cards and letters. I felt like my life was crashing down and breaking into a million pieces. I don’t know how you could have lied to me, how you could have torn us apart. I know things where’s perfect, even though I thought our little life together with our family was almost perfect. I would have never done that to you, I would have never hurt you like you hurt me.
You thought I didn't know you pretended to be my friend. You thought I didn't know you thought of me as a convenient friend. You smiled in my face and talked behind my back. You used me to pay your way when we went out. You used me to do things for you. I was a true friend to you and I loved you like a sister. Thank God I had a real friend who loved and respected me enough to show me what you really are .... A USER. I had to let you go. You lost a good friend. To bad for you.

There are times when I try to diffuse feelings of nervousness with humor. And sometimes when I do, I mess up a cliche or end up not being funny at all in front of others. Its those moments when I wish I could be like an owl and fly to the top of a tree and hide away. And I think, "Really? Did I just say that out loud?" Sometimes I think my dog has it super easy. All she has to do is look cute - never worrying about what to say in social situations.
At the ripe old age of 21, I was essentially an orphan. Yes, I was an adult, but you know as well as I do that you really don’t know anything at that age - even though you really think you know it all! After losing my mother to an aneurysm at the base of her brain just short of my 19th birthday, did I really do something so bad in life to lose my father to a heart attack at age 21? I don’t think so. However, that wasn’t the worst part...when my father passed away, I was 8 months pregnant with my daughter - his first grandchild - who he missed seeing my less than a month. Did life really need to be that cruel? Although it may not sound it, I’m really not bitter about it and I know this is just real life, but I do still have to ask myself...WHY?
Journaling reads: While visiting my bestfriend in Raleigh, NC, we decided to take the kids to the museum on a Monday Holiday. When I started to park, I noticed the sign "Assigned Parking ONLY, Violators will be towed", but Pam said it was fine since it was a holiday, so I parked and didn't think twice about it again. Well, when we entered the garage to leave, I was shocked to find my car gone(okay, I was hystersical)!! Thinking my car at been stolen, we headed to the police station only to find out that my car had actually been towed!!!!What?!? Apparently, the gentleman had come to work to find my car parked in his assigned spot in the garage, so he had me towed...I could have strangled Pam!!! She was parked right next to me and of course, her car wasn't towed!! I do believe the guy at the garage took pity on me and only charged me $20, but lesson learned, I will NEVER listen to my bff again...its all funny now, looking back on it!!!Amy:
Koen, Sometimes the things you do and say catch me off guard. Where on earth do you come up with these things?! Like when you do something that you know amuses someone else you turn around and say, "I'm funny?" Yes, sweetie - you are. We were watching a cooking show one day and ever since then you walk around punctuating sentences with - BAM! You are Superman, Spiderman, and the Hulk at any given time and your love for cars just overwhelms me at times. You, Koen, are so much like your father; it's a wonderful thing! You even picked up on my counting bit and repeat it at any given chance. You just make me laugh so hard and thinking to myself "Oh really Now?" Koen, you bring out my inner childish playful side and show me how to love stronger. You challenge me on a daily basis and make me a better person. A better mother. I love you so much, my little monster butt!

The first time, it was one of those "Moments" you know those unexpected spontaneous moments that you will never forget and has changed a part of your life.
I challenge you today to look deep in your heart and find that forgotten moment, that moment you never talk about but you treasure in your heart, that moment that changed the way you saw yourself or you saw the person you were in it with.
No it does not have to be a romantic moment or a sweet moment it can be any moment you want. Good, bad, or even ugly!
Now go get DIRTY!

It's funny how people hurt the ones they love the most.
Sometimes is it so toxic you have to cut them off, sometimes you
can handle it but it's a daily struggle, sometimes you just avoid it
altogether. This challenge is all about those who love to hurt you
or just blindly hurt you while saying "I love you".
No it might not be intentional, but it still hurts.
Maybe it's the sister who constantly says how horrible your
children are, or the friend who always criticizes your weight.
Or the parent who only sees their child who makes mistakes
and does not acknowledge your accomplishments.
It's ok to see the pain, and it's ok to still love them.
It's therapeutic to be aware!
Now go get Dirty!
