Life is Crazy...Welcome 2009

Toot's Being Tickled by Paw Paw!!!
Mom and me at Pickwick!!!

I have not blogged in awhile. Gettin back to work, Chase gettin back to school with all new classes, and Robert has been sick. Nothing serious, sore throat, aching, light fever. Still not sure what it was. Must have been viral. He is much better and thankfully the rest of us did not get it. We made sure and stayed away from Toot's. I went 7 days without seeing her and it was tough.

She said her first sentence and it had the word "Paw Paw" in it. Kelly was getting her out of bed and telling her that Daddy would be home soon and they were goin Bye Bye. She looked at Kelly and said "Go See Paw Paw"???? She figured if we are goin somewhere I would like to make a suggestion as to where we are goin. She loves Robert so much. I used to be her favorite.. Now I walk in the door at her house and she gives me a quick smile and looks behind me to see if Robert is there!!! If he's not it's like Ok, I guess you will do!!!

I did not have time to do my Menu Plan this week. We have come home everyday askin, What's for supper(if I did not stop on the way home and pick up something)?. I am goin to try to plan this week. It is goin to be another busy week. I did manage to get my laundry done early so I don't have to deal with that.

We may grab Mom and go to Corinth and eat BBQ at Rib Shack!! They have such good food. The man that owns it was in the Restaurant Business with us in 1981. So we have known him for a long time. He also owns a Restaurant in Booneville, MS called Catfish Country. We have not been there to eat yet. It is on Hwy 45 and we have passed there goin to visit Robert's mom and the parking lot is always full if they are open.

15 Years Ago Today!

This is Chase and my Dad, when Chase was 2 months old(1st time Dad saw him)

15 Years ago today, my Daddy died of lung cancer. He was 67 years old. We found out on Dec 3rd of 1993 that his lung cancer had spread to his rib cage and his backbone. He went to the ER thinking he had pulled a muscle in his back and this is the news they give my brother. He called me and told me that the outlook for Daddy was not good. We buried him on Jan 3rd 1994.(one month to the day we found out he had cancer)

I miss him so much. I was the only girl with 3 brothers,(one older and two younger) I was "A DADDY'S GIRL"!! He was my world. Even though I had three brothers, I was his huntin' buddy, fishin' buddy and his shadow. He could not go anywhere without me right on his heels every step. I know there were times he would have love to go fishin' without me, so he could enjoy some peace and quiet and not have to answer 20 questions and keep me occupied. He was the most patient person I have known. He never got flustered and I don't know how with all of us rowdy kids.

I know we will be together again one day. I know he watches over us. His presence has been felt here in my home when Kelly was really sick.(I will save this story for another blog) It was not me he chose to reveal himself to, it was Robert. Robert never believed in things like this, until this happened to him. I believe that is why he chose Robert. Everyone would think I was just missing Daddy if it had been me.(It was just days away from Daddy's birthday, Robert had not remembered this and I had not mentioned this to anyone)He still don't like to talk about it.

Daddy, I know you are watchin' and I know you can see Tootie, I just wished you were here to bounce her on your knee like you have Kelly, and Chase and me of course. I sometimes watch Tootie with her Daddy and smile, I'm happy she loves her Daddy, but it also reminds me of you Daddy:o)

You are missed very much, save me a good spot in heaven beside you. I love you Daddy!!! Keep watchin over all of us!!
