I'll be trying to check in here every once in awhile untill I can manage the stairs a little bit better (a little hard to do with the crutches right now), I'm hoping that by the end of the week, that I will be using just a cane or something. I happy that it's over with and that when it heals, I'll be good as new!
I hope everything is feeling better and healing quickly, enjoy the time off.

Well I took a 5 hour nap..I woke up at 930 pm and thought it was time for me to get up in the morning. I got as far as brushing my teeth and then getting my uniform out when I was told it was night time. So I got back in the bed and here I am! My legs are throbbing and this is why I can't play baseball next year. I am getting too old. I already need 2 knee replacements my Dr said. From playing fgootball all through high school it has damaged my knees. I am trying to wait as long as possible since new technology is always coming around as far as knee replacememt goes. Well I hope everyone has a good night...we are 8 months away from xmas eve~!!!

I took my youngest out to look for a job again this afternoon and Haagen Dazs hired her on the spot. They told her to come in Friday after school at 3:00. I'm so relieved that she found something!
I hope everyone is having a great day. I have to go boil raviolis for dinner, be back later.
Congrats to your daughter getting the job, if I got a job at Haagen Dazs, I probably wouldn't last more than a week. I would get fired for eating all the ice cream.

I was sure to read it all last night but when I got to the check out, I had 3 transactions. my aunt was w/ me & I had 2 transactions in my cart. anyhoo, even though I had another discount card they wouldn't let me use it. you should have seen my aunt & I trying to go through & figure out what to get & what not to get. It was my b-i-l's discount card but they still didn't let me use it. I guess next time I need to have that 3rd person w/ me. probably won't go back though due to all the restrictions & it's 30 miles away!

gotta call from doc today, all my labs were normal. that's great but that means there's something the labs didn't find. going to rhuematologist (spelling?) on May 22. said they will try to find out if this is Fibromyalgia (spelling?). kinda discouraging, I don't know if it's worse to get a diagnosis from blood work or if it's better to find out later. Just want this over!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Praying for Made's Mom & Xmastidings, Snowball, & all to be blessed!
I will keep you in my thoughts.

I hate when that happens, I have done it where I have taken my shower, dressed, and ready to go and then I realize it is only like 2am.
I hope your legs are feeling better.

It is so cool when a kid knows what he wants and goes for it! I knew in third grade what I wanted to do with my life. I never wavered in that dream and was blessed with my education, obtaining an AA degree, a BS degree, a Masters Degree, and working on a doctorate. My thoughts and prayers go with him.

Leaving work at 3:30 today to go to my son's high school baseball game. We only have 7 games left then the state tournament, if we qualify. We have have quite a few snow days to make up so school is now extended to May 30. I hate to see this school year end since he will be a senior next year.

Saturday we are visiting Gardner Webb University for "junior day". It is a 1/2 day of scheduled meetings and tours for high school juniors who are looking to attend the college. Ethan thinks that is where he wants to go and major in Journalism. It is a Christian university so we are happy about that but I'm sure I will have a lump in my throat all day just thinking about him leaving.

Have a blessed day everyone.
