Crazy things always happen to us!

Yesterday's post was not a normal "Mommy going Crazy moment." I apologize for my out burst but quite honestly I needed to say it. I needed to get it off my mind. Thank you all for your kind comments. I feel I have the BEST readers out there! It's hard to struggle, but it is even harder to struggle alone.

So lets talk about a few of the interesting things that have happened to me in the past week. Completely non-related to my last post.

~A stray pit bull ran through my garage door while my hubby and kids where getting home. It tared through my house like something crazy. It found my cat and started to attack. The kids were screaming and crying. Complete CHAOS! The cat was pinned in the dog's mouth so my hubby and I started to hit the dog to distract it (I am not mean to animals ever, just when a pit bull is attacking my cat!) The dog turned to my hubby and started to bite his leg. Luckily it stopped and not so luckily went back to the cat. My hubby is ok, we got the dog outside again, the kids calmed down, the cat still gets all stressed when the door opens, but is ok. We called animal control and they were here in less than 5 minutes. I guess when they get a call that a stray pit bull is on the loose and was running a muck in someones kitchen they take it pretty seriously.

~ Monday was a little more crazy when we got a call from a neighbor/friend that our neighborhood was on lockdown. Apparently a suicidal man had been chased into our neighborhood and was running all around with a gun. There were three helicopters hovering over my house for about an hour. Dude's school called and said that I couldn't pick him up because they where on lockdown too. They eventually caught the guy around the corner from my house and everything went back to normal. Dude had the best time staying at school 45 minutes longer than he was supposed to, I on the other hand wasn't as amused as he was. You can read the news story about it HERE.

~Saturday was a very busy day for us. I taught part of a photography class in the morning. I really enjoyed sharing a bit of what I know. I was so grateful to be a part of it. I just wish I can find my memory card reader so I can get my pictures uploaded. Anyway, after that class we took our kids to the Diabetes Expo. It was almost closing time so lots of booths were closing down. We did get to talk to a few people about pumps which made the time worth it. Next to the Diabetes Expo the Kids Safety Expo was going on. We decided to see what it was all about. It was the craziest place, but it was a lot of fun! The little Man hasn't stopped talking about the fire truck all week.

~And maybe in not so crazy news, but a little more on the annoying side my almost 2 year old grabbed the hot end of a curling iron, opened an entire loaf of bread and dumped it all on the kitchen floor, and emptied a brand new box of tissues all over the bathroom JUST YESTERDAY!

People like to tease me that crazy things happen to us. This week has been proof of how true that is. I can't wait for the "storm" to blow over and have it calm down a bit.

Sorry Shannon....but I was laughing at your post! Never a dull moment at your house, huh?! Although the pit bull incident wasn't all that funny, poor kitty and hubby, hope they're ok.
When things are nuts over here, my hubby and I say at least we aren't boring!
