Late Night Phone Calls

My oldest daughter called me about 2 am.   She has been dating a man I really didn't approve of for several months.   Nothing serious but I was worried about my girl.   He is in the country illegally and drinks like a fish.

Last night he demanded sex.   He got angry when she said no.   Last year, she would have given in.   Last night she said, "I'm done. No more."

Three times she listened to the crap boys will say just to get sex.   She finally got smart!  I am one proud momma.   She said NO!

This is a small victory but with her, I'll take what I can get.  

Going to the Dogs

We visited the local pound.   I spent a little time with every dog, big and small.   They were either to small or to old.   So many sweet animals.   I wanted to bring half of them home with me but it wasn't possible.

I need a puppy to train that is going to get about 30 inches tall at the shoulders.   None of them had potential to get that size.   It was so hard to leave them behind.   So many sweet wiggle butt dogs.  

I'll keep looking.   The goal is to check out the pound about about every two weeks.   It is to hard to go more often.   I want to save all of them.


  1. GOOD for her!!! Sex?--NEVER without a wedding ring on the finger!!!!!

    1. I agree. I wish she did. Maybe she has finally figured it out. A momma can hope.

  2. Congratulations to your daughter Rose! Each time she stands up for herself it will get easier.

    I know what you mean about the dogs (and cats) at the shelter...I volunteer at our local shelter and I just want to bring them all home with me. :(

    Sending positive energy for your search.

    Hugs and Blessings...

    1. I can walk away from dogs at a breeder but the shelter breaks my heart. I can volunteer at private shelters but the city pound is tuff.

  3. Great news about your daughter. It makes you feel so good when they listen to your advice - you can tell she is getting older, you are sounding wiser to her.

    I always want to adopt all of the animals too. Some of them look at you so hopeful and others so sad. It tugs at my heart.

    1. I'll take the good when I find it. My baby girl is finally growing up.

      I hated leaving the shelter without a puppy. I'll go back and back and back again until I find my dog.
