Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

ONE WEEK INTO THE RENOVATION

One week down and we have walls down, floors gone, lights up, and cabinets in! I laugh when I think about how we considered doing the work ourselves..hahah riiiigghhht! Tomorrow the granite company is coming out to measure and hopefully some of our deliveries will show up. Enjoy the latest video.

On another note, our little Emma is doing MUCH better! She was really sick Friday night and we had to decide if we should wait it out till the morning when the vet opened or drive her to Alexandria, LA or Baton Rouge where the nearest after hours vets were. After talking to my vet on phone a few times and trying all the over the counter symptom treaters, we decided to wait until the morning. She made it through the night and we found out she has an intestinal virus. Poor thing was soooo pitiful. She is back to normal now but she is on a special diet and has 3 pricey meds she takes 2x per day. You should see Zach and I prying open her mouth to get these pills down...it is quite entertaining.
Here is a pic of Emmy relaxing on her big sis, Sydney. When Emma was sick I had her bed set up in the foyer and Sydney slept on the first stair all night to be with her. It was so sweet!
