I was about to apologise for the honesty in previous entries.
Then I was also going to apologise for the recent influx of entries.
But then I realised that part of this stage I am going through is about accepting who I am.
So I WILL NOT apologise for being me !!!
Anyway more cleaning (my laundry is no longer covered in cat food and cat litter!) and therefore more thinking.
Surprisingly enough, after recent posts, I have some hilarious stories to tell everyone.
(do not fall over.......we still have humor in the house!).
After my entry on Friday I spent the afternoon sobbing.
Not just crying, actually sobbing.
Amelia came home from school and says defiantly "Well I told him".
I looked at her and said "Told who what?".
"I told J that if he is going to have other girlfriends then I am going to have M as my boyfriend too".
At this stage I began wondering who this child was that just got off the special school bus.
This was definately NOT my angelic daughter that left this morning.
"Ok" I said "And where was M?".
"Sitting on the other side of me" Amelia said with attitude.
"And what did J say?" I asked.
"Nothing" she answered.
"And what did M say?" I asked trying REALLY hard not to laugh.
"He just smiled".
I lost it.
I could not stop laughing.
When I encouraged her to tell Scott about "the incident" that night she began by pointing at him and said firmly "Do not laugh".
This morning I thought it would be fun to take Levi (aka Steve) out to meet Amelia's friends on the bus. Little Scamp (our other dog) comes out excitedly every morning to greet everyone.
Anyway.......Levi runs straight to the bus and stands on the lift and waits.
We all laugh.
So Bob uses the control to take him onto the bus.
Levi runs around and has a sniff and look.
Amelia gets on and goes to her "spot".
Levi stands next to her.
Levi does not get off when I tell him to.
Levi ignores me and looks straight ahead.
I board the bus and Levi runs down the back and hides.
I DRAG him to the door and he gets away from me.
I DRAG him again and with more force get him off.
HE GOES UNDER THE BUS.
Yes. You read that correctly.
So now I get on my hands and knees and try to coax him out.
Tom decides that he needs food to coax him out.
Tom runs inside and gets popcorn.
POPCORN......yes I can really see him coming out for that !!!!!
Bob revs the engine to scare him out.
Levi moves to a better position.
I crawl on my stomach under bus and grab the bloody dog by the scruff of the neck and haul him out.
Amelia is crying because she is laughing so much and my driveway is covered in bloody POPCORN !!!!!!
Could only happen to us.
