tackle it tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I got this in better order. This used to be the home school board. A many a lesson has been taught on this. Some days I sorta miss it but I know I am right where God wants me. It hurts though not to be able to teach them. I let it go lay it down and do what I am responsible and able to do.

I'm back 9:15 Rena the Queen is at the groomers I get a $45. ! package for free.... did you know my knee hurts and my dog really stinks! I have always groomed the dogs myself and still will but with an infection in my jaw and my knee screaming at me... How sweet is this!!!!!!!! It just came in the mail day before yesterday!

Well, well, well! There an old saying nothing is free!
I went to go get Rena and this is what was done to my 8 yr old Golden Retriever! She had 4-6 in fetters and a full under belly/ tail and bib! Then wide eyed as I was the girl then said she had a hard time doing her nails and needed my help. I said "what did you do to my golden?! This is not what I signed for or agreed too!"
I went in to help her hold the dog and she said she needed only to tip the nails, Oh click and clack is not a tip job. The dogs nails needed trimming! So I told her I needed to step away and go take care of the register affairs and calm my self a bit. I would return to get her in a moment, I was holding Rena helping her to trim the nails. (Hurting my knee)
I stepped out saw the Manager coming my way and wide eyed stated "are you a manager?" " Yes " said he. "They just Really screwed up my dog, Go look at her she is a 8-9 year old golden who had full fetters and bib,tail belly. This is not what I agreed to their was apparently a mis communication!"
I then stepped up to the register and was just gasping to maintain decorum and told the girl at the register the news and handed her the coupon. She had never dealt with such a coupon before. She went to speak with him and I was in tow.
He walked out just as wide eyed and said..." Oh Madam! We screwed up your dog!"
I politely said..."ya think!" He said... " I am so sorry ,If you will give us another chance we really do, strive to take good care of our customers?" I said as I took a deep breath, ..."Throw in a 40 pound bag of IAM's and the next bath and I will call it an amends." He said... "that sounds reasonable to me." I told him I need to get to my kids and asked if he could please help get the dog food for me. He complied. As we were heading to the front of the store I said..."man, She really screwed up that dog..." He shook his head agreed and said( as we were walking down the toy isle)..." what kind of treat does your dog like?" I said ..."the IAM's biscuits"... "done"... he said and went back to get a box.
So he met at the curb. My truck was open and ready to put her in.
I went over to get the dog and the girl was visibly shaken. I entered she said.." (teary eyed) I am so sorry, I thought I was to do that job on her it was a misunderstanding".
I told her that I was not happy That it is understandable for me to emote but, that her heart was more important than a dogs hair it will grow back. I make mistakes. Misunderstandings happen it does not matter who is at fault. Things happen. I told her that the store has made an amends to me and it is finished.
She just fell apart and was weeping , "I am so sorry!"... she said "It is finished"...I told her and then I reached out and embraced her.
I repeated that
her heart was more important!
The manager met me outside and lifted the dog into the truck ( I was actually backed in curb side perfect parking spot too) much easier to get down on my knee.

Rena looks so goofy but she is clean and well she does not stink anymore!

$30. bag of dog food
45. free bad hair cut (very bad hair cut!)
10. free box of biscuits
45. free grooming for next time
$130. worth of God's provision for free (well nothing is free) Ha!
With a little humor added in and a whole lot of love when that young girl looked in amazement at me to my response. The manager said that he was so appreciative of me not to explode at him and thanked me for being so understanding! My cost was minimal I loved, forgave and received what was already done.
Post script. You know her under belly is sorta nice trimmed and she is cleaner a foot with all the long hair on her paws off. It is so funny that they had me sign that contract for a professional trim.


2 inch adhesive, Velcro acquired at a clearance rack for 50 cents for a yard package, I slice it into 1/4 strips covered the edges. It took two yards. I got this started day before yesterday.

Gods provision! I had this much scrap hook left.

I have been working o this project!

After I return from a visit to "Photo Daughter of the Kings" house, she moved and I have yet to visit her at her new home. We have been trying to do this for some time. So tomorrow I have some time off work to go play.
Go give her a visit she is a new to blog friend who would be lifted up by a comment or two.

Had the play date from 3-5 nice child. It was a friend of Dash's
His Mom stayed for 45 min she had pick up her 13 yr old to take her to an eye apt. She had a little alone time with her. She was prompt and came for her boy . He melted down on her and Dash supported him to maintain by giving him a coloring picture. That child was tired.

I forgot till 4 to put this out I hope tit will thaw quickly I have yet to make supper. I got it mid day last week and froze it.
I got the chicken fried steak and the gravy, but we just had a salad with it.
I'm tired!!!!!!!!

I go to go to tend to Miss fiction she is getting negative attention by messing with the serger dials ooooo... that ticked me off. Got to go tie strings.
Post script... I tended to miss fictions bath time and washed her hair with my abalone shell, those are intimate loving times we have together.
Mr Dash hawk comes up to me pulls up a kitchen chair says... Hay Mom how would you like to have a conversation with me...:) so I said why sure He asks" so mom how was your day today.." so we conversed a while this boy is ^ yrs old. who would ever know.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
