Out poking around

in the garden this afternoon. Trimmed back the dead wood on the hydrangea, and seedum. Tulips and crocus' are up but Ileft leaves around them. Im hoping that we dont gat a late april freeze again this year. I had no hydrangea blooms last yr, and it made me so sad! Boy am I tired now. Waiting to go get RX for the dr to fax back refills so I dont have to make 2 trips. Ohother big news. I went to see the surgeon this am and he said that everthing looked good, but it still takes 6 weeks to heal 100%. I may try to hit River plex for some walking in the next week. Wellp thats about it for me. Pretty boring huh?

Oops forgot again

I dont think this is the last time youll see this sort of title on my posts so just bear w/me. We got devastating mail twice last week! Same customer twice bounced checks totally 2k. They took it out of our acct!Thankfully we didnt bounce anything but still 2000.00 os alot of money! I left no less than 4 messages on their answering machine, and no call back. the last one was a little tough as in Im claling the sttes attorney if they didnt call back by today, jus tin case they were out of town. So guess who calls today! i was so relieved that he did. Ive given them till the 31st to pay up!Theyre lucky that we arent charging them addtl fees which is in our rights as a business. But Im not quite that mean and Ike sjust happy to have the money back. Now if our bank charged us thatd be different. Ok that is really alll for today!

the easter aftermath

What a day! Exactly as a holiday should be! WE had good/great food and even better company! We talked and ate, went to see Emis new little rented condo, lest anyone think shes really growing up!LOL It is so her. I can see her living there for years. It even has a cute little "lake" that has a sandy beach like area nad a dock. Ikewanted to know if he could bring his boat. Emi rolled her eyes. Went back to Terrys for my PW dessert and everyone was in love at first bite! We came home and I changed into my home clothes and was fast asleep by 6:30.Kind of an up and down night,though when all I really wanted was to sleep! I guess the biggest thing from yesterday, beside Olivias darling dress and sweet little piggies, was that AManda thinks shell be able to totally quit her day job for online design work. You can find her at amandae dot photography@blogspot . com . Now dont go flodding her little blog with a zillion posts! Her for real dot com website will be up and running April 1st!Its so very exciting for them! And us too! They seem to have their dads' entreprenurial drive and spirit. O will still go to the sitters a few days a week cause theyll still have to pay the bills, but Im so happy to see this happening so soon for her. Gods given her some awesome talent! SO i guess after all that thanking Im going off for a bit. I dont feel as well today a sI did on Saturday, but Ive had 3 very busy days in a row too. I think Ill cuddle up with The Pants (my big old Maine Cooner Cat) and watch entertaining tv!LOL HOpe the sun comes out for a few days! I think Im turning into a shrinking violet or some crazy plant like that!

saturday, for goodness sakes

Well Im recovering nicely now! FINALLY saw Olivia last night. I made the PWs' roast and it was so to die for. And her mashed potatoes. With cream cheese. Olivia seemed to like the carrots the most. And me! She wouldnt letme leave her sight w/o a frantic yell of ,"Gwammie?"They stayed till almost 9pm which was late for her. I just cant believe how tall shes getting! Still skinny as a rail but tall man!I told AManda that her pants are getting short. She said,"Yeah at first I thought that her pants were shrinking b ut then realized shes gone through another growth spurt". Seeing her is like medicine for the soul. It just makes your heart happy! Besides getting my hair done, it was the highight of my day! Pawpaws' too! Makes the b low of having a customers check bounce twice not hurt so bad! Well not hurt so bad yesterday..

Home again

Well all went well yesterday with the surgery. I arrived at 9am but after getting all preprepped and such the nurse tells us that sugery wont be till 12:00. I sent poor momma home so that we didnt just sit and stare at each other for the next two hours or so. I decided around 11 to take a snooze to take my mnd off of the unfair-ity of not being able to have anything to eat or drink! Just as I was getting all nice and fuzzy in walked Tom M. It was a ver pleasant interruption of my snooze. We tlaked for about 45 min or until they took me back to pre pre surgery...whatever that was!LOL About 12:40 I walked, yes I said walked, back to the surgery suite. It was nice and cool in there. Oh forgot to say Ive ahd to give up my teeth at this point. That was mroe bothersome than the whole thought of surgery!LOL Anyway I said goodnight to all in the room, and woke up around 2:30 or so in recovery. My first thought was did he do it lappy or was I open. I felt my tummy area to find that, whew, it wa sof the lappy kind! its sort of foggy for the next two hours but needless to say I was fully awake at about 4 or so. Then my EMi called and came up to see me after shed gotten off work. then the next thing I know? There she was. I commandeered her to hook up my bra and had mom step out. She was ok with it too. I managed to dress myselfand fof we went. I sent Emi after pain meds and mom got me home. It was raining pretty had too. So I settled in and fell right asleep! Woke up about 8:15 and had some chicken noodle soup. I was getting pretty sore in my belly parts so I took my meds for the night and crashed about an hour later. Slept pretty good until I had to cough. Now that wasnt fun at all! But still way better than being in the hosp. Got up again around 4am for more pain meds took some deep breaths coughed alittle more. Woke to the ohone ringing at a little after 7. It was Glenna calling to check on me. Ike gave her a nice report but I was pretty much up after that.Im much more comfortable sitting than laying, so Ive had a little coffee and talked to AManda mom and made an appt for next Wed to see Dr G again. So now Im a wastin some time on the internet, but will prob lay back down about 2 or so...thanks for looking after me God. It was mighty gracious of you!

sunny sunday

Yeah well I guess my secret is out! Im not a church goer anymroe so Ill sit and worship at my computer for a bit! Besides a very noisy man this morning getting his coffee made for the day what did I awake to? No not the cats..It was hard to tell since it wasnt quite light out at 6:30, but the noise was terrible. Something was fighting outside my front window. Or at least I thought it was fighting. No it was tow coons doin it outside! By the time i got the old man up here they were just wrestling around and making all sorts of sweet little cooey sounds. And when it was light enough to see they were gone. Mother Nature at its finest hour! I must venture out today. At least to the store to pick up a few things as Im having my poisoned gall bladder out tomorrow am! my dear sweet mom is coming with me, and I have to be there by 9am. Im not sure what time Ill be home but Im thinking by 1 o'clock. so if youre following this blog say a prayer for me! Have a good Sunday yall!

saturday blues

i know most of you dont associate the blues with this day of the week.But its all I can really come up with today. Its cold snowy and grey. See? I told you...?? Ive piddled around the house, no not literlly! But not done a whole lot of anything. Im tired. Poor Ike has worked hard all week with this cold too! Im making left overs so not alot of excitement in the way of food! Im just so tired! See I said it again!! At some point FMS has taken over too! The amount of sleep I get is ridiculous sometimes. And I think after all this Im just going to go add to the total! ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzz

See I knew

I ended that post way too soon! The very hunky hot surgeons office just called and I am to be at the hospital at 9am.Not too early but late enought to miss my coffee! Clear the roads as my mom will be driving me. she is 83, and not the best driver anymore. But Illbe ok! And will have to lay down the rules! She cant stay and hover over me when I get home!LOL Yeah shes the sweetest thing ever but I needs my space...know what I mean? Let me recover alone! My older sister Sue had her gall bladder out oh a yr or so ago, and the next day was haulin mulch to her flowers in the back! Now I dont want to live up to those standards but if I can make my stuff for Easter dinner, then Ill be happy. See? My needs and wants are few! Tomorrow Im going to a crop for a few hours, try and get a few projects from scrapbowl done! I really want to go for the discount so I can buy my secret bunny, of hte human variety, some cool stuff with a discount! And wil need to mail it tomorrow too!, Well we'll see. I think Im passing on my neices b-day party on Sunday too. Ive still got a mean hack and dont think the mamas of all the new babies will like me hackin anywhere near those sweet precious babes! Ill send it with Terry...or mom! Ok I think that really is all for the day! Oh my Pammy...thanks forlookin at my new and iproved blog! well updated anyway! I love you!

Feeling a bit better

thanks for askin! So good today in fact that Im makin a man pleasin meal to celebrate! I told Ike to not look at the butter. He said he wouldnt! Hes kind of an anti butter person. I am not so much! He calls me a butter hound!LOL Yeah like thats going to make me put some back. His tricks have no hold on me. Oh and as if I need another reason te celebrate all that is butter, and there fore better, Some fru-fru magazine said that Land O lakes butter is the best!! No I didnt buy that brand cause Im still a penny pincher, but I did buy two lbs of the creamy yellow goodness while I made my foray out into the wilds of the grocery store yesterday. food, esp the fruts and veggies, looked so good yesterday. I got more fruit than vegs but hey Ill balance it out with frozen corn from christmas!its still good right? I do have to say that in all that is happy and holy butter has no carbs, neither does the meat!!! Im not much of a bread eater so the insulin thing wont be hard!mmmmmmm

There is something

so healing about a shower! Yeah I drug my cruddy butt off the couch and into the shower about an hour ago! Man did that feel good. I mustve stood there for a good 5 min under the hot running water, and chanted "Oh man this feels so gooood!" Washed my equally dirty hair, forewent styling tho as Im sure the blow dryer weighs way more than I can manage today. I may have a hair appt w/my Bethie tomorrow and I also may have a dental appt. I cant do both. No energy. So hmmm whats going to make me feel better in the long run? If you guessed the hair appt youre right. I just dont have anything to give you for a prize. Ding ding ding!!! Does that work?? Im still drinking coffee but I really need to eat. Anorange is on the counter with my name on it so I think Id better scoot and put something good into my nutrition starved body! Thanks for hanging with me!

sick insomnia

It happens this time every year. I can sail through most of the winter without a sniffle, but come the first of March I come down with what I now call the March curse. Its the crummy lung crud. Cough hack wheeze. The kind where youre trying to lay there and sleep but you can still hear the finel rales and rhonchi between each breath. Thats med speak for those funnt high pitched squeaks and rubs you hear! Unless of course youre blessed with no Asthma like qualities!LOL So I decided after a good dose of the poineer womans blog that Id at least try to make the best out of not being able to sleep when everyone else, even a sick dh and hte cats are sound asleep! so heres to a night of lost sleep. Good thing I dont work for a living!
