Zoo

The best way I can explain the last week is that it has been a zoo. First and foremost there has been this whole Circus around Michael Vick being indicted on charges that he backed a vicious dog-fighting ring at a home he owned in Virginia. The charges allege that the operation, which the feds say began in 2001, often left dogs dead in the ring or killed later by hanging or electrocution.
If convicted Vick could be paying a heavy fine as well as doing some jail time. It is a huge step back for the NFL. We are hearing of all the terrible things NFL players are doing. It is crazy how guys who have so much money are making such terrible decisions. I don’t know if they are so bored that they have to go out and cause trouble, or if they just don’t care. PETA was outside of the NFL offices on Friday protesting because Vick has not been suspended as of yet. I honestly don’t know if they are going to do anything or not before he season starts. The best suggestion I have heard is to suspend him from playing with pay. To give him a chance to clear things up (or get convicted) and then get back to business. I doubt that will happen– but at this point who knows?
Life continues to be a zoo with Logan and Addyson. They surprise me everyday, with the things they say and do. Addyson is starting to roll over and I would say within the next two months she will be crawling. She has been a fast learner and I think that is common with #2 children. She seems so aware and alert. Tonight when I was holding her to fall asleep (and playing Madden 2007) she had one of her hands on my hand and the other was grabbing onto my shirt. She had a pretty tight grip. I don’t know if it is an unconscious thing for her at this point to want to cling to Katie or I but that’s what she was doing. It is a great feeling (and scary sometimes) for something so small and precious like that to have complete and total trust in me. For someone who cares and loves me so much. Like the other day when Logan told me that I was his best friend. I don’t know if he fully understood what he was saying but it was a really cool thing.
My dad was in the hospital, my sister-in-law might be pretty sick and my brother started a new job so all those things make life the more of a zoo. Please keep them all in your prayers as they need it right now.
Why this metaphor is on my mind right now is because we went to the zoo today. We went to Elmwood Zoo in Norristown. It was a nice small zoo and Logan really enjoyed it. He is getting to the point where he really soaks things in and appreciates it more. It makes our little excursions that more fun.
I hope things get figured our and calmed down more next week. One can handle only so much in a certain amount of time.
