I'm sitting at the cardiologist again. 36 minutes late so far, but he had an emergency this morning and is way behind! If I am ever an e
Emergency, I hope he will take the time for me. DH had no work today do we got to go to a Mongolian BBQ grill for lunch and now he's taking a nap sitting here next to me. Guess he needed a day off. I'm not going to get Kyle today. His mom is off work. It may be a good thing if this appointment takes a long time.

Our temps are going up to 90 today.

I was so geared up to talk to doctor yesterday but she was late to work because she got in a car accident and smashed the front of her car up really bad. It was her fault too as she looked down for a second and the cars in front of her came to a complete stop. She had an extra busy day and then the last patient took her home. She did tell us though that we are having another meeting with other doctor again. He got upset again because his charts (5) were not pulled last Friday. They thought the new girl was supposed to do it, but apparently one of us is supposed to do it! My co-worker actually had to write a letter of apology to him about it. I'm not sure if the meeting is about that or what. I'm so glad my day off is in the middle of the week. I can re-group before going back and doing 2 days there.

Today I go back to the cardiologist for my results. I'm sure they are good as I feel so much better. I have successfully cut my coffee back to one cup in the morning, eating lots of protein & veggies, and cut my white flour & sugars almost completely out, and limiting even my good starches like oatmeal & brown rice. I've taken all my vitamins every day.

My roses are finally doing so good. I have 4 red knock out roses in the front yard. I need to do a little weeding this morning. Actually, I need to do a lot but if I do a little it will help.

Vickie - I will have DH look to see if there are any Sheraton hotels near either one of you. Those are the ones we can get into for almost nothing because of our DDs family privileges with her former employer. So far she has got to hold onto those and gives us a nice place when we travel.

Heidi - glad you found dress in spite of cost. Flip flops are really "in" and especially if they match dress would be really cute and she would be comfortable and could wear them again too. Only my oldest DD went to prom & we were able to borrow a beautiful dress and she went with friends. None of my other girls were interested in Prom even though they had started the homeschool proms which sounded like they were even nicer events than the public school proms. When did you mail the quilt? I wasn't sure when to expect it. The shower is not until next week but I am anxious to actually see it. I want to pick up an inexpensive storage box to wrap it in, preferably with a blue top & then just put a big bow on it. I love practical wrappings! I have wrapped baby gifts in a blanket before but I think the quilt might be too bulky to do that with. I had thought about getting some discounted stuffed animals after Easter to do that, but never got out to shop & really have already spent my budget.

Julie - I am so happy you finally posted a pic of your beautiful family. Now we can all see that you are not only beautiful on the inside but on the outside too.

Faylei - I don't think I could take full time care of children anymore. You amaze me that you do so much! Hope this is the church you are looking for.

Anjay - your trip starts next week! Praying you feel better for it and have a really special time, especially the renewal in your marriage.

I need to run. I'll try to be back later.

P.S. If you see this in a bit - Vicki is taking her driving test (written part) at 8 AM - pray that she passes. This is one more step to helping get her on her feet. I can't remember if I told you all that she did not have one. Her license has expired and because she never drove anyway she did not renew it. Now that she is out of that situation she wants to drive. We already have a car lined up for her. Thanks!

Good morning!

Prom is this Saturday. So we went to David's Bridal last night and found a dress. It was half off but with the alterations cost it ended up being a little more than the one we ordered. Now we need to find the right shoes. They had flip flops there that matched so may just need to go with those. they were cute with the dress. She can't wear heels because the dress is just the right length. She will pick it up Friday.

Then we stopped by Fazoli's to get dinner on the way home and we got all the way home and mine was not in there:( I called and they knew they didn't put it in there. So I am getting a coupon in the mail for a free entree. I wasn't driving back 15 minutes to get my food. So I ate dd's salad that came with hers and a couple of bread sticks. I decorated the cake for the preschool at dd's school and finally hit the bed at 11:30! WHEW! It is going to be a loooooooooong day. Might be movie day!LOL

Anjay- I hope all goes well with the house and it sells soon. It is hard to wait.

Daddy'sgirl- I didn't realize I hadn't added you as a friend until I went to your page to comment on it. Glad you have decided to stick around with us.

Forgot what else I was going to say. Be back later. A friend and her ds are joing us for lunch today. Should be fun and the kids will be able to play outside.

No sadly we do not have a contract yet, we are being pro-active, the couple who do not like the slant, made us think and after talking to our realtor we decided to do our own house inspection, well the floor is good, no problems there, but hubby has to go into loft, fix some insulation, weather proof tape the hatch and cut more vents in the soffits, the other big think is the deck it is still the original, and they never used pour concrete to set the supports, so not sure what to do there, he has given us suggestions, but we will get the prelimnary tomorrow, so know more then. whew he was very thorough and I thought a little too picky, but we see, we are going with God.
Hugs and prayers everyone

emoticon Wishing everyone a wonderful day! Closing down subject by subject here in our little homeschool as ds finishes each subject little at a time. Tis also yard season but I can't seem to get out there this year. With the twins being this age, they don't go play while I work cause you turn around and they're drinking water from the water/sand table or picking the good flowers or falling down. LOL! I guess every thing comes in seasons and this is still twin season. They are precious and so much fun. Always full of kisses now and have learned to say "miss you" and say it all the time to me. Funny as they are never away. LOL!

Julie- I absolutely ADORE and LOVE your family picture. Oh my, oh my it is wonderful and you my dear are absolutely beautiful!

Creative- I'm so sorry her dress didn't come in. Hope you find something cute in the price range you will be needing. We have kids up here who put their dresses up for sale on the day after prom on our local website for cheap. Ouch to spend 100's of dollars then sell the next day for around $50. I actually still have my dresses.

Daddy's girl- big hugs to you.

Anjay- hooray for getting all that done for the house. Still praying here it sells quickly for you. I still remember that big year we were trying to sell ours and paying rent elsewhere while waiting. Such a stressful year. Oh, our tip from our realtor in bathrooms were baby oil. It sure does shine up the bath tub and make it sparkle and look new. Also the faucets with a light oil wipe down just look brighter and kitchen sink while you are showing it.

Vickie- They say 98 here today. WOW! In APRIL! I heard this morning that Thursday on and on will be the beginning of big storms again too so we need to enjoy today and tomorrow. Dh is short handed at work so we don't get any time off right now and there are 2 of them taking the call for 4 right now so hardly even a weekend off call:( They are trying to cover for each other as needed also in short spouts so no one is completely without a life. LOL! I think they have a girl beginning in mid June but then will have to train her. We never know weekend to weekend if we will be off call or not. Don't know how they are going to handle this coming up Saturday as both the boss and our family are going on a homeschool field trip together. We are going to a granite cutting business nearby and then the family that owns the business wants to treat us to a picnic at the park.

GrandmaAli- Hugs to you. Hope you had a safe trip.

Hugs to all.........off to play.........

Good morning!

Dominique- normally I would say suck it up. But with it Being for prom and her only prom then I do want what she wants. It is a lesson learned too. Check to see where it is being shipped from. LOL. Or make sure you order early enough. Her first reaction yesterday when she found out it wasn't here was "Guess I am not going to prom". I said " you will be going to prom no matter what". So guess we will be out looking for another dress.

Anjay- do you have a contract from that couple who didn't like the slant?

Vicki- dh is going to be tired. Thanks for the comment on the quilt. I just started making them. Starting out slow. I have another one that is more work to it and I hope to have it done for my open house in September.

Daddy'sgirl- Thanks for the comments on my pictures. I just made that dress to put on my website and to take to shows. I saw the pattern and liked it. It took about a week.

Anjay, did I miss something? Do you have a contract on the house and that is why you are having an inspection? Praying that is true. What are your plans when the house is sold? See if I had time to read your blogs I would probably know all these answers.

Faylei, I think you and I and hubby's should see if we can meet up with GAli and hubby this summer. Wichita, Ks or Guthrie, Ok are a couple places between all of us. That way we could start the planning for our June 2013 get together.

Wonder if GGB and GGE will be coming this way again this year. It has been almost 3 years since they came through this area and met Julie, Faylei and I.

Hubby is working a double shift tonight, not his choice but was ordered. He will be home at 6:30 AM and then back to work at 1:30 PM.

Hugs and Prayers to all, Vicki

Happy Monday Everyone!! Hope Everyone is having a nice day! Just found out DS # 2 is coming home tomorrow. All our children will be home to celebrate a family birthday!! Woo Hoo!!!

Anjay sorry Wayne is still feeling guilty! Yes, the enemy will do everything to try and stop the Lord's plans. Hugs to you! Hang in there, your good attitude will turn Wayne's heart again! :)
When do you leave, 3 weeks now?

Heidi did the prom dress come yet? I hate waiting for packages! It's like Christmas when they come but the waiting and "are they ok" drive me nuts! :)
The quilt in your profile pic is gorgeous!! Great job! I need to get busy on mine again. It is a silky, satiny fabric and a puff quilt. It takes lots of patience and I can't be stressed! So it sits! :) A baby would bring more motivation!! lol

Ali glad you had a safe and good trip. Family and friends always means we eat too much! Everyone always wants to take us out or want to cook special for us! LOL

GodNeverBlinks hope you do well going back to college. Can't imagine waiting to hear about which 8 go or stay!

Faylei will look up how to make the scratch and sniff books. It has been awhile! :) Remind me if I don't get this info to you! DS is coming home tomorrow and life will be crazy for a few days!

Julie what a great idea to come and smile when there isn't time for a note!!

Blessings to you all!!

Hello and hugs to all. Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead. Off to grade papers.. We had a garage sale this weekend and I don't think I've caught up since. LOL! Ohhhhh, did take the time out to go fishing with ds and dh and had a wonderful time. Also, tried out a new church and really enjoyed it. Say a tiny prayer as we are searching for a new church home. Thanks

The weather is crazy here too. Got down below freezing one morning last week and then it will shoot to the 70's and then 50's next day. I think months have flipped this year. No A/C or heat on for over a week so that is good.

You gals would be so jealous of Stacey's birthday get away with her hubby. She has posted wonderful pics on fb. I sure hope she comes back to update us soon.

Havea beautiful week ladies!!!!

Good morning!!!

Yes, please pray pray pray that the dress comes in today.

Busy weekend here. We spent saturday at the ball field. Not without an adventure though. You know there is nevr a dull moment around here.LOL I was getting ready to go deliver some Avon before we needed to leave for baseball when dh and ds came home from taking the trash and said there was a nail in one of the tires:( So off to deliver Avon and to Walmart to get a new tire. And boy did I pray that we would be in and out of there. I told the guy that we needed to be in Tullahoma at 1 but still needed to get back home to get ds. That was at 10:30. We were in and out of there in 20 minutes. Thank you Jesus! Then it was freezing at the ball games and I forgot the blankets so we went ot o Walgreens between games to get blankets. I tried to stick it out because I didn't want to spend that money on blankets but I couldn't take it anymore. Too cold!
Sunday, church, lunch, home. I worked on graduation gifts that will be going to Chicago next month. A friend of mine called and asked about ideas. So we are doing baskets with shower gels, lotions, bath puffs, back scrubbers, and a organizer to hang in the bathroom for the shower gels, etc. She needs two. Another "Thank You Jesus" for that order!

Now we will wait for the other answer we really need on the Home Equity loan we applied for. We want that to pay off credit cards and to get another car. The prayer is that we can be approved without having to have a co-signer. I was honest and told them our credit is not good and told them why we need the loan. It will help us get back on track. Tried to refinance the house but we need to go one year without being late on a payment so need to wait now until Feb. Going to get it together one way or another.

Anjay- praying for your relationship with Wayne. It will get better.

Faylei-how are those twins behaving? Any better with the eating?

Gali- glad you made it back safe and sound. Sounds like you got to see alot of people and catch up.

Dominique- you have such a positive attitude about your job. I know it will all work out for the best.

Off to get coffee now. It is COLD! Who would have thought we would be in the 30's at night in late April!

Hi everyone, wow what a busy chat room, I am a littler better today, but pain is not letting up, but thats ok, God is helping me through it, Wayne and I worked in the garden today him more so, but now it is ready for our trip, so we need not worry about it, it is a natural garden all the plants are perennials and creepers so they do there own thing, I have daisies, and arabis and dead nettle and snow in summer and mint and strawberries and crepping jenny and charlie, it is so wild, but that is what I wanted so people viewing could see there was very little work to it!!
Wayne is starting to open up, and we have decided that we will talk about our relationship for upto 1 hour a day on the car trip across Canada, so that is awesome.
How is everyone else hope you are enjoying this beautiful day God blessed us with
hugs and prayers

Good morning and happy sunday! Went to the opera last night with my sweetie...It was a nice evening out. Huge headache this morning ...not sure why but I'm thinking is is becasue of our seats, we had to crank up our necks so I think that is putting tension and causing the headache.

Anjay how are you doing?

Ali how was the trip back? About the job, if I am one of the 8, I think I'll go back to university and take a diploma or degree in human resources management or in councelling. I would get a one year allowance from work and they would pay up to 10,000 of the course fees/books...and I would work my butt off to get it done in one year....


Has the prom dress arrived?

Good morning!

Wish Kate would pop in. Miss her on here.
We had 80 degree weather Friday and 40's yesterday. Ds had baseball an hour away and we sat for 5 hours in cold misty rain, windy weather. The bleachers had a cover on them but the wind was awful at times. We ended up going to Walgreens between games to get blankets because I forgot to grab ours on the way out.

Gali- I will try to post pics today. Dd has been on the computer a bunch lately getting announcements done.

Off to get ready for church. Wish I could have stayed in bed instead and just had a "chill" day but I am teaching today.

Dominque, yes Kate's divorce is final. She is in her second year of college and Annie is completing her first. She still home schools Aaron. Her life is very stressful but she keeps a very positive attitude in all her posts on fb. I told her to come back and visit us.

Yes we really need an update on Barbara and GGB. I know a couple weeks ago they were all at GGB's because Grace got onto fb for the first time in months. Barbara does not even do her farm anymore which she was so excited about. Working almost full time and homeschooling 8 children has to be pretty overwhelming sometimes.

Praying for all, Vicki

God never blinks, thank you, thaank you thank you. What a great idea, I am going to try it, things are so hard here at the moment, praying that our time across Canada will be a time of healing, and trusting each other more. We are now talking a little more, I am still in agony, but getting there slowly, decided to come off pain meds and go back on homeopathic remedies, so hope this also makes a difference!!
Praying for each and everyone

Julie - we are sitting at the airport ready to come home. I love to go & I love going home. I think I told you how our friend knew a lot of our relatives but hadn't connected them up to us but then when we went to my brother's house last night, we found out that he has been going to the same pool to swim as DH's cousin. Apparently, there is a core group that all swim at the same time & have been doing it for years. they had wondered why he had quit coming. I had an extra folder from the services that he could take and put on the bulletin board at the pool.

Dominique - sorry you have to wonder about your job for such a long period of time. What are your thoughts if you are one of the 8?

Vickie - I hope you can encourage Kate to pop back or even visit regularly. I miss her as well as all the others that don't post anymore.

Julie - thanks for your Scripture on Facebook. I need to start doing that again.

Anjay - keeping you in my prayers!

Heidi - wooHoo!! Can't wait to see the baby quilt & t-shirt. I probably need to go look and see if you posted the pics yet.

Anjay, I read your blog...now I get it..OUCH OUCH AND OUCH...I think instead of telling Wayne not to blame himself (which reminds him to do just that), you should simply ask him to touch you from time to time...like ask him to hold your hand, or give you a gently hug;;;;and deeply sigh and say "That's just what I needed, it feels so good)...or remember to touch him as you or his walks by...just a simple touch- it will plant the seed that you still want him, his touch, without bring out the negative.

Just an idea....

For those who don't know- Wayne accidentally pushed on Anjay's shoulder and dislocated it.

Dominique- good luck to dd today. And thank you on the confidence about the dress. So glad I have you ladies to pray pray pray!

I need another prayer answered on a different situation tha has come up. We really need it to come through without hesitation. And quickly. Can't say now what it is but just need you ladies to pray about it with me.

Anjay- yes.......why is Wayne blaming himself?

Good morning,

Anjay, I must have missed why Wayne is blaming himself???

Please say a quick prayer for my dd this morning. She is doing her piano exam at 12:02 and is very nervous about it...

Nothing much going on. Couple more meetings next week to find out more about our job situation. Did I tell you we still don't know which 8 will loose their jobs....they said it could be a long process, which is good because the longer it takes the longer we have a job !!!

So Vicky, Kate left her hubby, is that finalized now? How are the kids? What is Annie up too? the boys? Did Kate go back to school? It would be nice to get an update!!!

Miss Barbara and GGB...need updates on them too...and Jen...and Joy...and...and...I pray they're all fine and just too busy to come in here. It was nice to see them on FB...but now that I don't have FB, I miss them (but not FB at all).

...and the prom dress will show up!!!!

Have a great day everyone!

Good morning!

Anjay- yes the devil will always try to get in the way. Praying things will go smooth for you. We are trying to be able to get another car but as you know we have spent 1000.00 on the one car we have a few weeks ago. So back to square one for us right now.

Vickie- hopefully the dress will come in. It wakes me up at night thinking about it. There for awhile when I would think about it I would hear a little voice that would say "Ye of little faith". I have faith just need the dress to come in.LOL

It is raining this morning. Ds has to be at school at 6:30 this morning to ride the bus with the football players to gte free physicals today.There is a place that does them once a year free for the school sports. Then we have baseball this afternoon if i doesn't get rained out.

Gali- Quilt and shirt will be in the mail Monday. Missed the post office by 5 minutes yesterday and the little postal place I used to go to on saturday's has closed.

Anjay, praying for all your situations. (((Hugs)))

Heidi, praying that dress comes in tomorrow!!!!!! This year has gone by so quickly. Has dd decided where she will go to college and is she getting lots os scholarships?

Wanted to tell you all that Kate says "hi". I play words with friends with her too and see her on fb. She was a long time sister in here. She is single now but I still invited her to come back and see us. Also told her about our tentative get together next June.

I am really tired this week. I guess all the deadlines have really caught up with me and drained me out. Headed to bed real soon.

Hugs and Prayers to all, Vicki

Please pray for Wayne, he is still standoffish, and blaming himself, it is putting tension where there does not need to be tension!!, also I think the devil is mad, as since deciding to go to Nova Scotia, we have had one big expense after the next.

Dear Ali, Wonderful to hear you are able to see so many family members and connect with so many happy times. I think that is one of those wonderful things even about funerals. They remind us of who we are and where we have come from and how many people love us regardless!! Thanks for welcoming me to the team with such wide open arms!

You would not believe the temp here today! 62 and it is 1:15 in the afternoon!! We are getting some good rain without any of the theatrics too! Feels more like October! :)

Hugs to you all!!

Happy Friday Dance!!!!!
emoticonemoticonemoticonemoticon
We got into California just fine and picked up DHs sister at the train station. We also picked up our friend Dennis whose wife has Alzheimer's. It sounds strange, but he really needed to be cheered up and DH thought it would be good for him to be with people. It turns out he actually had met my DHs cousin and some of the other family members when he worked with them in a convalescent home ministry they were all involved in. He just had never connected them up with us! The services were real nice and getting re-acquainted with that part of the family and meeting their grown children and finding out what everyone does. DHs sister is one who likes to joke & I was hoping no one thought we we were being disrespectful, but we had some teary points too. We went over to one of the cousin's houses afterward & they had tables and canopies set up and catered in Mexican food. They also had made a DVD of old photos and put Glen Miller Big Band music with it. My DH and his parents were in some of the old pictures when he was little.

We are meeting my niece & family for lunch and then tonight my brother & wife for dinner. Tomorrow morning my DHs brother & wife will meet us for breakfast (the one who has breast cancer).

Anjay - read all your recent blogs and so sorry you are going through so much pain and discouragement. We will continue to pray. You are such a sweetheart & hope that this will not discourage your DH but only give him a renewed commitment & that you will be healed enough to really enjoy your trip b

Daddy's girl - I just love your heart too and so glad you have joined our group!!

I wanted to write a note to all but we've got to hit the road.

Had my annual physical yesterday - so glad to have that done! I was thinking and I think I mentioned this on the prayer list that the boys and I have not had to be to the doctor this year at all. That feels so good. It is not the norm for us and I am so thankful to God for this health this year. As I say this though, Adam has the sniffles and a cough. He has had it for several days but we believe it is just allergies. The pollen count has been high here. Both boys have sniffles this week. They have had allergy attacks off and on this year but nothing necessary for the doctor visit.

I am staying home today and trying to get a full morning's work done with Joshua. With my SIL living with us it has been crazy! The past two days I have taken her to drop off applications here, there, and yonder! She has also talked with people before too. Just pray that she finds a job soon.

I better scoot and check on the boys. I think I am going to make me a cup of cocoa too. It is not cold here but I do not need it to be cold to enjoy hot cocoa!
Blessings,

Good morning!!!! IT"S FRIDAY!!!!! Time to do "HAPPY DANCE"emoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticon

DD's prom dress has not arrived still. Prom is the 28th. I wake up during the night praying about it. Too much stress. I will really be doing the happy dance when it arrives. I really don't want to go out and get another one and then have it show up. It is coming from China of all places. Wish we would have realized that when we were looking and deciding at 10:30 at night.

Yes Anjay do take care of yourself. You need to keep living that excitement for your trip. I am praying you get to feeling better and better each day.

Daddy's Girl, I agree if you miss this group 1 day you are going to read at least a long chapter of a great book. lol I am now having my Spark emails go to a gmail account I set up. I have to make myself go there every day or so because my regular email acount just pops up and I get over 100 emails a day, about half are junk.

Very tired tonight so I am headed to bed.

Hugs and Prayers, Vicki
