For Susannah Bianchi – A blogging friend of mine asked me this week if I would re-post the dog story. I knew just what post she was talking about! Please enjoy if you haven’t already read it and if you have maybe you will enjoy the story again! (I’m also testing a new format for posting. Tell me what you think.) ~Elle

Finding Myself Through Writing

I find  it’s harder to say no to my kids now that they are grown and not children anymore. At times I have to grit my teeth and stand my ground.

Andrew: “Mom? What are you doing?” (He always says Mom with a question mark as though someone else would be answering my cell phone. haha)

Me: “I’m pulling out of the driveway on my way to DFS.”  (I could tell by the tone in his voice he had something on his mind.)


Me: “Something wrong? Do you need something?”

Andrew: “Lauren found three abandoned puppies (people are so cruel) and she made me take one of them. It’s soooo cute. I was going to give it to you during Thanksgiving break – you know – for a present. I can’t keep it though. I think I’m just going to drive over there (2 and 1/2 hours) and bring it to you.”

  2. My 18 year old just bought herself a puppy. To live with me. And when she’s talking to it she refers to ME as “the Momma” I don’t want a puppy I’m just getting rid of the kids! Why would I want a puppy? I don’t even like puppies, the least she could have done was bring home an old trained dog that only had a few years left…geesh
