As I was driving back from Texas yesterday, I did a great deal of thinking about Heaven. I came home to find this music video in my email. If you don't know the story, Steven lost his daughter in a tragic accident last year. I am certain the lyrics were from his broken heart.
I will post again on the subject and give you my thoughts during my alone time-but for now-I leave you with this.

He has been the center of attention since he arrived making several visits around town and just chilling with Poppa Bob, Momma Lulu and Uncle Gabe.

I am really sick of the armadillo and his destruction. EVERY night he makes his rounds in the flowers beds and his rooting has gotten deeper and more extensive. I spend 20-30 min. a day crawling under bushes to fill in his holes and get the pine straw back in place; I usually finish with mosquito bites all over my legs and arms. I have tried replanting the caladium bulbs, but that bed looks like it has mange.
I have spread 5 boxes of moth balls in the flower beds, and all that did is make our house smell like grandma’s closet. I even found moth balls in some of his rooted holes.
I have set a trap in his favorite spot and he avoids that spot. I have moved the trap at least 10 times, and he may root around it, but he never goes in. Last night I tried peanut butter in the trap and I almost caught the cat.
Matt came over at 1:00 one night, and all he saw was a possum leaving the yard.
I have trouble staying awake, but tonight I am going to set the alarm for every hour after 11:00. I have tried making rounds before then, and he must be a late riser because he doesn’t come that early.
Last year Mom told me to hit him with a shovel if I saw him, but I knew then that I couldn’t do it. After a year of my elusive, nocturnal, destructive beast, I have changed my view. I will beat the sucker until he looks like roadkill. If I am successful, I will move on to your house with my beast killing abilities.
Wish me luck.

Beginning of the day: a 3 step skin regime for the face-with 5 minutes between each step. That is BEFORE you begin applying makeup.
Soak my feet for 5-10 minutes-per dermatologist and then apply cream
Showering with liberal use of a razor-following with sunless tanning cream-followed by moisturizer.
I am GOOD TO GO.
The fun part comes at night:
Remove the day's make up (the part that remains after a good workout full of sweat).
Another foot soak and cream application.
A scalp massage with lotion recommended by dermatologist (she obviously has NO LIFE).
The face regime with another 3 steps .
The lash application to promote growth.
MANY days another shower (remember I work out A LOT) with more application of moisturizer.
None of this begins to enumerate the hours of exercise SIX days a week!
After all that though-----the results are so worth it! I LOVE THE NATURAL LOOK!
