Weekend Fun

Monday, June 18, 2012

We attended a wedding for an old high school friend this last weekend. They had the ceremony on the 7th hole of a golf course. It was set up very nicely and the bride drove her golf cart up to the aisle. It was very relaxed and yet formal enough. The reception followed in a hall at the golf course that was decorated nicely and had a dance floor. When the couple was announced they came in and danced a nice slow number, but their second dance was more disco with a very cool well rehearsed dance! It was very entertaining.

Since it was a high school friend there were some others from our class there so our table was very comfortable to be at. We didnít stop laughing all night. The groomís brothers also entertained us with their own version of ďMuskrat LoveĒ using the bride and grooms names and the golf course theme. I couldnít get their song out of my head all day yesterday. I made a post about enjoying the show, because it was so entertaining. A great time was had by many.

This Saturday will also be great fun as we are having a family reunion that has relatives from far and near coming. I will see my Aunt and 5 of her children this year. I havenít seen some of her children since I was a little girl. I was actually the flower girl in one of my cousinís wedding. That was some 45 years ago. I am so looking forward to the weekend!

These two weekends are the reason I put off having surgery until July 3rd. I need to be able to go to these events and Iím so glad I made it so far. It was painful, but the fun made it all worth the pain and I know this weekend will be the same.

Have a great week!

Monday I see the surgeon

Saturday, June 09, 2012

This back issue of mine has been going on long enough. I have been through chiropractor treatment, decompression therapy, and have had cortisone shots 3 times into my nerves. Pain medicine has not worked to ease much of the pain. They do help me sleep and that is somewhat helpful. When I got out of bed this morning I looked liked a cripple. I have been waiting 4 weeks to get into the surgeon and at this point I'm ready. I hope I don't have to mess around to long before I get an option that works.

This pain limits me from doing much of anything. Walking and sitting are the worse positions for me and that makes it hard to do much. We have a wedding next weekend, a family reunion and graduation in two weeks. I want to feel better, it is so hard to hide the pain and I often look a bit cripple anyway so others can tell.

I am doing my best to keep a positive outlook and I thank you all for letting me vent.

    Pain is a real drain. I've lived with pain and I know that it not only affects you physically, but emotionally, mentally. I've gone through times I felt like I was crawling out of a deep dark hole. I hope that they find something to bring you relief. I'll be praying for you.

    So sorry to hear this. Wish there were something I could do to help. My son had 2 titanium discs placed in his spine last year and it has made all the difference. He was not able to get up or down, or walk. And his level of pain was severe. I trust your MD has a treatment to help you. Keep us posted!

Monkey Business

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Here is the gift I just made for a little one year old. His dad was my youngest son's best friend so I know his dad was full of monkey business.




I hope you are all having a great weekend. My son's will be here soon for a cookout so I'm just chillin for a few before they arrive. I'm hoping that we stay dry since there is that chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon.

    Love the blanket. Totally forgot about those and how simple they are to make.

Enjoy the cookout. Hope you don't get rained out. We've had pop up showers off and on for a few days. Hoping the rain holds off now so I can finish planting my garden tomorrow morning - then let it rain. Well, I do wish for a nice day for Memorial Day cookouts, although we are not doing one of our own.

Summer Vegetable Tian

Saturday, May 12, 2012

I was looking at new food ideas yesterday on Pinterest and saw this one - it looked so good that I had to get the ingredients and give it a try. I made it slightly different with a regular potato in one half and a sweet potato in the other half. I have to say it was quite scrumptious!

I also had to look up the word tian as I hadn't seen it before: A tian -- a layered, baked vegetable dish.

Here is the picture and link to the dish - I highly recommend it!
