Ok, so Clay always tells me that I am psychic. He can hardly surprise me because I can just feel like something is happening. One time two years ago when Clay was working offshore, I was driving back to Houston from my parents house. I just thought, I feel like something is going on. So I was bored driving and thought I'll call Clay's cell phone. If he is still offshore it will go strait to voicemail, and if it rings then something is up. Well I dialed and it RANG. He ignored the call but I was thinking....Oh my goodness, he is on land!!!! He called me right back and said, "What are you doing calling this phone?" hahahaha I knew it!!

I just thought my incite was just between me and Clay, well, today had nothing to do with Clay.

Last night I had a dream that a helicopter landed in our cul-de-sac. It would be a great place for a helicopter. There are no power lines, it is really round, perfect for a helicopter. I didn't think anything of it. I have weird random dreams all the time.

Well guess what happened tonight?!?!?! I was turning the water on in the bathtub getting Wade ready for his bath, and the house started shaking. "What the heck is that!!" I go outside and no kidding there is a helicopter in the middle of my street. Just a block down from where it landed in my dream. Are you kidding me? Am I dreaming now? Wow!

Wade just loved to see the big helicopter on our street and see it take off. Turns out a lady who was visiting her sister had a stroke, a heart attack, or a diabetic incident. No one really had a clear story as to what really happened. A Life Flight helicopter came and got her, I do know that much.

Here are a couple of pictures to show you proof that this really did happen.

Summer time!!!

We are ready for summer down here in Houston!! We have been having fun in the sun (and in the a/c as much as possible). We try to hit the splash pad at least once a month, and Wade LOVES to play with ice on the back porch. We do this almost everyday. Wade is really trying to talk these days too. He has some words down and some words only I can understand (we call his language Wadeish). The other day he was looking at his book and turning the pages saying "happ-y, happ-y, happ-y". It was so cute!

We are in full fledged discipline mode here. Wade is approaching the terrible two's and I am trying to lay down the law early and let him know that he can't get away with murder and cannot have whatever he wants. So far so good! He does have to sit in time out two to three times a week but I can see that he knows I mean business when I say NO! We'll see what the future holds. I'm trying to stick to my guns.

I am also trying to keep up the running as best I can. I took a month off after the half marathon and pretty much lost all of my endurance. I am still fighting these darned shin splints. I'm in a running club and we just ran a 5k. I finished, it wasn't pretty, but I finished. Clay decided to run this one with me and he did great! I can't wait for the day when Wade can run those 1 mile kid fun runs with us.
