Once I graduate in a couple of months then it will be time to look for a job that fits my degree. I hope to pop in here and there! I don't use social media so the best way to keep in touch is through PM. I will check that from time to time when I login. I barely have time to make a post let alone read everyone else's. It's not even worth it to me to post if I can't see/comment what's going on with everyone else! Just wanted to explain what's going on if I vanish!

You and your families have all been in my thoughts! Hope everyone is doing well! I will post again whenever I get the chance!
Good luck with your classes Jennifer!

The day she got home from the hospital she felt terrible from the lack of sleep and nausea but the next day she felt so awesome she was trying to do chores around the house, laundry, changing the sheets on her bed and more in her wheelchair when she was suppose to stay in bed with her leg elevated! She has one of those external fixators on her leg, a big bulky thing she has to deal with for 4-6 weeks. There is NO REASON for her to do chores or cook! The whole time I was growing up my dad always shared that responsibility and NEVER expected my mom to do all that. My dad seems to love waiting on her too! She was doing all this while my dad and I were out running errands for her so we were not aware that she was misbehaving, she's a rebel! Ha ha. We got a call from her and she was bleeding and swelling at the surgery site. My dad rushed home, called the doctor and she was told to get to bed! They told her to stay there but my mom just cannot be still! She is good now. She told me she doesn't like ordering my dad around. I convinced her that he likes waiting on her. He has always been that kind of husband anyway, he LOVES doing things for her. I know what I witnessed with my mom and dad growing up, nothing but love! That is why they have been married for nearly 50 years! I also told her to call Wayne and I anytime and we will be right over if she needed us.

I am very behind on the forums. I hope I haven't missed any big news. We got a lot to do today so I will try to catch up on here sometime.

Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers! My mom thanks you too!
Still praying for a speedy recovery for your mom!

I awoke to the sound of ladders being put up against the side of my house this morning. We had signed a contract for a contractor to remove and put a new crown on the top of my fireplace about a month ago and they didn't call to say they would be here this morning, glad I decided to be at the house here this morning....

We decided to put our house of 14 years up for sale! So, we have had contractors here for the past two weeks working on the back deck and addition, we are having new granite countertops installed, making sure the fireplace is in tip top shape and we are landscaping our yard as well (IE, my brother and his company). So as they say, we are turning and burning....

We are looking for a house as well, so we are doing that while also looking to sell my grandfathers house to boot and we will have him move in with us so that we (I) can continue to take care of his needs...
Good luck with everything xmastidings!
