Computer update

Sunday, January 03, 2010

My computer crashed again last night. I am posting about
this so if ya'll don't hear from me for a couple days(this is
assuming David is to sfraid to let me use his-LOL) you will
know what's up..

My computer is about 7 years old, and I know it is getting
ancient, but I am just hoping it will hold out til we can get
our finances going again. His SS hearing is not until February.

Ya'll keep your fingers crossed now.........'preciate it...

  LOL....I used to shop all year when I had money to spend.
If I saw a toy or something, I'd pick it up..we had some
who needed a few things at Christmas for their kids and
that way Santa always left a few things at my house for their

Plus, my fave trick was carry a notebook, and when someone I was
friends with, would say something about wanting/needing some item I would make a note and presto, when Christmas came around
I had my shopping list.

I used to have so much fun with it.....

    Oh! Really??? It's THAT CLOSE? Eye-yi-yi!! There is this little place in Columbus, Ohio, that is open all year round...I forget what it's called...but when we lived up there years ago it would be 95 degrees, humidity out the whazoo and there'd be this place, with Santa in the yard, fake snow falling in the windows and these reindeer "flying" on the rooftop.

I just wanted to get out of the car and smack someone.

Love ya...and thanks for the reminder to get crackin'!!

Dear friends,

In many ways, Sparkfriends are my family, and I treasure all of you as the friends
who make me laugh and cheer me up when I stump my toe, and I pray I can always
be there for each of you, as you have been for me ...........

I wanted to get this in the mail early, because I know many of you will be traveling
or having family in and may not get a chance to read this.

I hope, if the weather prevails, to be out riding my HARLEY DAVIDSON motorcycle
on Christmas Day.............even if it is a mite chilly, this chick is going to give it a
whirl...and to be generous, I am going to let David ride mine also, since his still has
a flat...............

I WISH EACH OF YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS. You are all so special to me............

MERRY CHRISTMAS, 2009......................................

    Thank you for all your support in the 5 weeks I've been a member on Sparkpeople. You have been a great inspiration & support to me, and I treasure it. I, too, hope to ride on Christmas day. I plan to take my bike in tomorrow for her 10K checkup! I've put 3500 miles on her since I got her in July. Merry Christmas and ride safely.

The following is the latest update from Char. The news for Bob is not good,
but they are standing on the Word and ask for continued prayer.
Please, everyone, continue to pray for Bob and Char.
Thank you for joining me. Darlene

Unfortunately, the light at the end of the tunnel we were expecting turned out to be the train. Once again it is the worst case scenario. The chemotherapy didn't work and the blood cells coming back are more bad ones than good ones. He was not given much hope, but opted for the low dose chemotherapy where he will get to be home a lot more than he is in the hospital. On it the odds seem to be 9 months to a year. Once again we were hard hit and spent the day together with many tears. We decided it was okay to mourn and even cry if we want to and then we will pick ourselves back up and fight like mad!!!!

There is only a 20 percent chance that he will go into remission now but we are praying for that 20 percent.

    Joining other believers in prayer that this will be one of those 20%. I know that the time you spend together is precious and even Christ wept when He was hurting.

    We are thankful for your prayers and support at this time. My dh tells everyone about all of you on SP who are praying for him and shows them the prayers I forward to him on his lap top.
You can't imagine how uplifting your prayers are for us. The support us and comfort us and make us realize how many wonderful people there are in the this world who would pray for us without knowing us and reach out to us in our distress.

Thank you all so much and keep up the prayer work. We are not done fighting yet and your prayers are a blessing.

    You are both very strong and brave to fight the good fight! Thank God you NOT giving up! Fight each minute you have on this earth and pray without ceasing! God hears the prayers of His children! We are all standing in the gap for you too!

Remember, Jesus prayed thy will be done! We need to pray for God's will in Bob's life but we also need to tell God that we want him to live and beat this dreaded disease!

Moses got God to change His mind and if we all stand in the gap and pray that Bob beats this then maybe God will change His plan for Bob too!!

God Bless You Both!
