Update: I Punched the Sh&t Out of Her! Hooray!!

So in regards to the blog I wrote about the stupid Punch Buggy game that my sister has decided to play all summer and has been winning, it finally happened. While we were out I saw a bright yellow VW Bug and was so excited that she didn't notice it that I could hardly get the words out!

But...when I did....she received a punch that has only been seen in movies. A punch so legendary the production of Beetles has come to a halt to simply preserve the right arms of all teenagers that just so happen to be in my path if one goes by.

Crazy....I actually feel so much better! That game can be such a stress reliever. Go fig.

A Poem That's Too True!

Whilst talking with another mom about Moms in the City she shared with me one of her favorite poems which I thought was so great that I'd share it with you ladies as well!


A Single Parent's Prayer
Lord, grant me
Time enough
to do all the chores, join in the games, help with the lessons, and say the night prayers, and still have a few moments left over for me.
Energy enough
to be bread-baker and breadwinner, knee-patcher and peacemaker, ballplayer and bill juggler.
Hands enough
to wipe away the tears, to reach out when I'm needed, to hug and to hold, to tickle and touch.
Heart enough
to share and to care, to listen and to understand, and to make a loving home for my family.
