Thanks Kim! I'm better today and did rest very well last night....prayers help a lot! As I was laying in bed this morning about 4 AM....I was doing a physical inventory in my head. Top to bottom. God knows every cell of our beings and nothing is a surprise to Him. I need to do a spiritual inventory as well!

Enjoy your time at SIL's. I know it would be much more enjoyable with Wade's presence but I'm glad you can get out and about and Mom goes with you, right?

I read some this morning about the peace of God in all circumstances and how running to Him should be a first response, not a last resort. I admit, in my own strength, I can do nothing. I want to be willing to lay down things that harm me, physically...and damage my relationship with Christ. I've been distressed and depressed and some days breathing is such a chore that I struggle with the smallest exertion emoticon

We are getting ready for the mad dash of the new month so I need to get myself prepared for that and do some prep work...here and at home!

Be blessed...and have a wonderful day, ladies....love, hugs and prayers...

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I'm so sorry you are feeling puny, Bren! Keeping you in my prayers.

Diana, wow, what a great surprise after that let down. What a nice thing for Sheila to do too. She could have just called and apologized profusely, but she took you out to dinner and both of you ended up having a great time - praise the Lord!

We are going to have dinner at my SIL's tomorrow for Memorial Day. Wade is working again. So far he has missed all but one of the eat outs we've had. Not sure what we are having, but I will have to pick and choose. I think I will bring what is left in my bag of pea pod chip thingies and see how they like them. I think they are really good, and they are good for you too!

Well, y'all have an awesome weekend. I'll probably be on at some time tomorrow, but if you don't see me, that's where I'll be, at the SIL's! Love ya

God bless, Kim

Aww....that makes ME weepy Diane! Thanks for the post. Honey I still feel that way too...last one picked, if picked at all. Of course if I was to come out of my cave and have some real interaction with others, I'd most likely find some new friends! I feel like I belong...here at SP...and that's great....I just need some face time with like minded folks in my city. I'll give that some thought!

I'm still feeling puny and am so glad for the answered prayers for a peaceful, restful day. I had ice for my water and since my coffee at hone was half-caf, I did stop for some fully leaded on the way to the office. I could have made some but was not inclined to do so. The one cup was enough to spark me a bit...and I had bacon and eggs for breakfast, a wee bit...and the rest of it for lunch. It was enough to keep my sugar stable without making me more nauseated. I'm backing off the carbs today except for my veggies at dinner. I'm hoping this helps and I feel better tomorrow.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

So, I was invited to a united way banquet on thursday, by our HR girl at work. we had a few miscommunications in the last few months so we were very clear with each other when this was going to be. I thought I forgot it last month april 26th, and she assured me it was may 26th. So I went to the Radison in Corning thursday at 5:30 and there were all of these people in wheel chairs waiting to sign in, so I am thinking o.k., it is united way, they may have invited some disabled people. As I was waiting in line and got up to the front I eyed the masqueraide masks on the sign in table, and asked is this the united way banquet? No, they said it was the Pathways prom, (pathways if for the disabled), but I was welcome to come if I would like. I went to the hotel frontdesk and they said the banquet was wednesday, so I went and sat and was trying to get a hold of Shelia to find out what was going on. remember when you were the last one to be picked for games at school? that is exactly how I felt, even a little weepy. So I look up and Shelia comes in and says, 'come on Girl, I am taking you out to dinner.(shelia is a brash, sweet black woman) So she proceeded to take me to Tony R's, a (the only) 5 star restaurant in Corning. We had a long very lovely dinner and I went from feeling so blue to great. The united way had told shelia the wrong date, and so I was happy I wasn't having symptoms of alheimers or dementia. lol

That's sad...joining a buddy in defeat. I went to a spelling bee when I was in the 6th grade...to Deleon.... was a runner up so didn't have to actually be on stage since everyone else showed up. It was not fun for me, being a poor kid, with no spending money. But it was what it was.

Now if I am up at 11....I may be sick! I was last night . emoticon Nausea etc....not resting well, finally lost dinner at 3 AM and slept good for 2.5 hours. I still feel pretty rough today so I'm doing the light days, like you've been doing.....and praying for a slow, peaceful, restful day.

I had Gaylon in here yesterday and he was a big help. I let him do two of the four rentals we had and we only had one error to repair. He helped me get move in folders done, since we were totally out....and he changed the cartridge in the copier for me and showed me how so I can do it if need be. He's good company and quite the talker. He just "works" in here when the weather is bad and he's caught up on outside things.

Maintenance hasn't come yet and now it will be after Monday. I'm down to one bulb in the ceiling fan. The package says 1.5 year life span....I get 8 days. I'm hoping they just change that thing out when they do come in. I'd be right perky with good lighting, I'm sure of it.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Who watched the Spelling Bee on ESPN? I did! I stayed up until almost 11 pm last night. I watched some of it in the afternoon too. It was so interesting. It was a twofer win last night, an 11 year old and I think the other boy was 13 years old, both Indian/American, which is like the 8th or 9th year in a row that an Indian/American has won the Spelling Bee. The 11 year old was amazing. I think that he threw the solo win though. He wasn't missing anything until his buddy misspelled a word, then all of the sudden he misses a word. Give me a break! I guess it could happen, but the 11 year old didn't misspell a word until his buddy did, both times.

Wow, it is hot today. I went outside to listen to my book for awhile and lasted about 15 minutes. Well, long enough to get a vitamin D fix at least. I need to get out earlier, before the heat takes me out! I tried to get Jake to come out and sit with me, but he was smarter than I was.

Well, y'all have an awesome day. Love ya

God bless, Kim

Those sound so pretty Kim...I had tiger lilies at my place in Alabama and daffodils all over the yard in the spring. I had a snowball bush out front, some dogwood trees and big pretty yards. I loved it there. I'd planted some hydrangea twigs my friend gave me and they were beautiful and bushed out wildly when I left there the first of August in '96. I never got to see the flowers on them but I know they would be awesome too.

Yes, the bugs are a real pain! I've had them in my clothes, up my nose, crawling in my hair and getting in the way all day! Maybe not up my nose but headed there...I've had some gnats at the house

I've had a great day...been super busy, got a lot done. I had four rentals and a transfer...got a lot of paperwork done, move in folders, sale notices done etc. Now I need to wrap it up and get ready to go home....yippee!

Have a good evening........and rest well...

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Ah, Spring. Love the blooming things, but all of those flying things do become bothersome!

I was watching the spelling bee today - boy, has my spelling gotten rotten! I suppose I need to work on some etomology (the study of word origins) again. That is why those kids do so well, they understand the origin of the words and that gives them how the words are spelled the way they are - well, that and hours of study!! LOL!

My deep red lilies are blooming under the weeping cherry tree - of course it stopped blooming long ago! Wade needs to transplant them though, the tree is super thick and even though there is an opening where the lilies are, you can't see them unless you are standing in Mom's driveway, which is away from our house! My pink roses are blooming like crazy too. The tiger lilies are starting to bloom as well, they are out by the pink roses at the corner of the yard out by the road. I put stuff out there so the neighbors could enjoy them.

Well, I'll let you ladies get on with whatever you were doing. Love ya

God bless, Kim

I left a note for maintenance at the office before I left for work. I prefer to let them do things while I'm not there since they may come at nap time emoticon

I enjoyed my days off but came in this morning with a number 4 attitude instead of dragging in at a 2. God is good and so merciful and I am blessed to have this job....and the gift of each new day.

The office is "bugged" this morning and they may get on my nerves? It's full of little gray and green bug and gnat looking things. emoticon Oh well....

Prayers and hugs for our girls....

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Diana, Shel is doing well. Considering getting her second knee replacement, and I can't remember if a second hip replacement is in there too. She pops in now and again as well. Bummer on the cakes. Good going though on lower carbs. I've found it does make a difference. Try to separate out your fats and carbs in your meals. They are your two energy sources, if you don't use them all up you store them. Deleting carbs for at least one meal causes your body to use the fats solely as the source of energy. It's how Trim Healthy Mama works. I use the plan loosely.

Bren, sounds like maintenance needs to get there pronto! Yikes!

Didn't do much today. Woke with a mild migraine. Took a three hour nap this afternoon, then watched some TV with Wade this evening. We listened to a sermon by on of his favorite pastors, but I can't remember his name, earlier in the evening, on how much today is like when Paul was at Mars Hill. The people worshipped every God under the sun and then included the sun! The were intellectual snobs and it was hard to get through to them for they were willing to hear anyone but wanted everyone to be inclusive. It was pretty amazing.

Well y'all sleep well. Love

God bless, Kim

Hey Diane! I saw our name on the check in sheet. The post didn't show but it does act hinky on occasion. Like my email ....not getting any for almost a year? My computer is hinky too so I'll come back... Woohoo Kim....on 207! Praying you feel better soon emoticon

You too, are being proactive Diane. A necessity even if not always "fun".

Hi ladies, just popping in here to let you know what I have been up to. Have started seriously cutting out carbs, since they turn to sugar, then to fat and since I am pre diabetic, it seems the way to go, I am learning to swap out, cottage cheese or yogurt instead of home fries for breakfast. doubling up on veggies (a better carb choice) and just paying attention and not paying attention to cravings. Made some cakes for a birthday cake last weekend, and realized two days after I froze them that I had forgotten the eggs! I had to do a redo, but Ron and Scott, still ate the eggless ones. but I ended up spending more time baking than I had planned. still got it done though it took my day off to work it out. Weather is turning warm, finally, will not complain, have been sitting on my side porch to drink my morning coffee, just wonderful. I am really thankful for the Church I am a part of, it is feeding my soul and a great place to learn to 'love one another'. have a wonderful day!!

how is shell? I scrolled down but didn't see any posts of hers emoticon

Good Afternoon, ladies! I hope you are all doing well.

Wade and I went to lunch at one of the cafeteria style restaurants here. I got the fried fish, a giant sized piece, watermelon and cantaloupe, some sweet potato casserole and a piece of cheesecake. I ate half of all but the cheesecake which I didn't eat any of. My tummy wasn't happy for awhile while we looked around Habitat for Humanity Restore, but it wasn't naughty - phew! We had found a couple of recliners there and this time we got the wedge that attaches them. Wade has been switching the living room around trying to get it all to fit in our long skinny room. I've been giving my limited opinion in between resting in the bedroom and listening to my book. He likes it best that way.

Well, that's my day. Love ya.

God bless, Kim

Good job on the eating, Missy. I'm proud of you!!! I'm so glad that you have your sugar numbers under control too. Men, losing weight is so easy for them! Ah well! I'm getting closer to Wade all the time.

I was 207 this morning! I'm not eating a whole lot right now, and not much of it is very healthy, but my tummy is really messed up, and this is the stuff that the doctor years ago told me to eat when my gastritis flared up, so that is what I am doing. I've been doing it for two or three days so no real results yet, but hopefully, Lord willing, soon.

I go on June 1st for my 1st set of shots. Please pray that they work.

Thanks, ladies. Praying for ya, love ya. Kim

God bless, Kim

I certainly prefer those and have used them too. Now, I prefill some syringes, recap them and keep them in an eye glass case in the fridge. I can fit 10 in it.

Wow, that's great! Men do tend to lose faster than women but those are great numbers. Kudos to you both.

Getting back to the walking is a big boost and mood lifter too. Congrats Missy and blessings to you and your household.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Hey Missy! It's good to see you pop in. I figure insulin is a last resort, due to cost and needle weenies like myself? My Mom wasn't put on it until January, and she passed away February 28th. She too, learned it wasn't the big monster we always saw it as. I gave a neighbor of hers all her Lantus pens and gear....if I'd known I'd need it, I'd have kept it! I'm hoping what I have on hand lasts until I see the Dr. again, the end of July but I'm thinking not....I have half a vial left and four syringes filled. I like that........having some filled and ready to use.

That's great that you can cut down on your dosage already! That helps a lot. You're being very proactive.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I just got through riding my recumbent bike with my windows open listening to the rain...and my kjv audio bible in the book of Psalms...what a joy that was!!!

I am taking my insulin pin @ night..and i take a shot before each meal...but...my insulin amounts are going down alot..since i have been eating healthy and cutting out all processed food and sugar...and no eating out!!....Riding my bike and walking is great too!!..I wish my doc had put me on insulin now..at the beginning..cause all those years I could have had it under control..the pills just did not work for me!!...I find that docs need to not push insulin as a bad thing and last resort..cause every person is different..and giving insulin from the beginning may have not caused me so much difficulty!!!..

Hope ya'll have a great day!!

Oh yay! I wouldn't normally be keen on shots but if they help I'd go for it too! Praying the insurance will pay for what you need. I'm not the needle weenie I was a year or so ago and I've gotten used to the insulin shots but am very glad I can still do just one a day!

I got sick last night. I had a coughing fit after eating my dinner and it made me sick. Oh well. I'm just so thankful that it's a very random occurrence. I do feel better today and my pain level has gone down a couple of notches.

I'd be staying confused with all the supplements, add on and add ins! I too, am treading lightly and it sure does help. However, if I could, I'd eat mashed taters and gravy and sugar free pudding! Yum!

I'm having a great work day, got some spot cleaning done before work and had just enough time to dart into Wal-Mart for my quart sized bags and some veggies on the way to the office.
I found a slice of carrot cake marked down to .89 cents so yes, I got it! I will limit my "sugar" days and the single serve works well. No way will I take a whole cake home. I did fondle a few boxes back in the back, but left them there. There were some baby pecan pies, donuts, pies, muffins, bread etc. marked down. The baby pecan pies were a whopping 380 calories....I think that was for just one? It may have been two but I wasn't taking them home. That's nuts! I can have a whole meal for that! And I know me too....I'd not stay out of the rest of them! Even in the freezer, some things are just trouble for me emoticon Your muffins would not be safe with me in the house!

We finally got some beautiful sunshine yesterday and it got up to 79. It's nice today too and I had to run the air awhile this morning. It makes me want to be outside emoticon Maybe with a lap full of cats and some iced tea?

I'm going to do some more posting and filing, then collect trash and take it out. I'll do that part before I put the cart up at 4:30.

Take good care of yourself..........be gentle and loving.....praying for healing and sweet rest...for us all.



In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Praise the Lord, somebody else called me, so I go for my shot on June 1st, as long as my insurance will cover it!

I'm dragging today too! Our power went out last night and it woke me up when it came back on. We had a bunch of rain last night, but no lightning, so I'm not sure what cause the outage. It was off for an hour or so before it came back on. My tummy is a wreak, but taking an extra 1/2 dose of Nexium seems to be helping and doing the easy diet is too. Mom made some NC style BBQ, but I think I am going to have to pass on that. I might eat the potatoes, but I can't eat the BBQ, to acidic and with the red pepper flakes in it, just too much chance it will be hot. I'll save some in the freezer for when my tummy feels better.

I started taking this stuff that I read about and saw blips of on-line. It comes from a fruit in Asia - Garcinia Cambogia. I read a bunch of the reviews on it and only one had a side effect of slight nausea. It's supposed to tamp down your appetite and keep you from absorbing as much fat. It also has serotonin in it which is supposed to help with energy (I think it is doing the opposite for me - LOL!). Anyway. My doctor wanted me to do the shots in the tummy to tamp down my appetite, and this is a natural way to do it. This is made in America and 100% natural - or so it says! It also has calcium and potassium in it. I take pottasium, so I am going to have to be careful. I may have to take one of my supplements out of my meds every couple of days just to make sure I am not getting too much. My last blood work had my potassium at normal levels again, so I don't really need to be taking the supplement as much right now anyway. Here's hoping this will help jump start the weight loss. I don't recommend it until I know it's safe!!!

Love y'all. Have a great weekend.

God bless, Kim

Oh no! Well, Monday will be here shortly, but getting things done and tucked away is good too.

Those baby cukes were the regular price today when I shuffled in the store for some ice and salad stuff. I got two apples as well. They were $2.98. I saw an article on line about the cost of wasted food. I'd rather not know, but I'm sure my produce waste alone would make a car payment or two emoticon

I'm really dragging today. I look forward to 5:00 again....yawn emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I saw I had a message on my home phone this morning. It was from the pain center. Unfortunately, the lady doesn't work on Friday, so I have to wait until Monday to make an appointment. Ah well! Jesus knows and He is really helping with that pain. I was having tummy trouble yesterday and today so I am going on the light diet right now. I took my OTC Nexium and that really helped. It just seems like I might have gotten a batch of the generic Nexium that somehow didn't get the medication added to them! LOL! I've been having a lot of trouble with acid, and reflux and pain for the past month or so. Now I am having trouble with other stuff! I am going to just go ahead and add that 1/2 dose of Nexium each morning and see if that helps too, as well as being on the light diet like I mentioned to you yesterday.

OOO, I found these Pea Chips at Sams yesterday. They are made out of pea pods and they taste like split pea soup. What a way to get my veggies!!! Wade even likes them. Crazy, huh???

Not much else going on today, just hanging around trying not to hurt. Love y'all. Kim

God bless, Kim

I need to remember the "better" things before I scarf up bad stuff! I have some fruit cups in there, NSA, yogurt. I'm eating much lighter today because I still had some indigestion going on. It's better now and I'll aim to behave at dinner. Last night I had a sweet potato and roasted chicken breast.

Yikes....more work for that one poor tooth! I hope that all gets taken care of soon. That's what caused the loss of my last one, a crack and infection. I have one now that is weak and hurts a bit on occasion. Some things aren't safe to eat now.

I'm going to put the golf cart away and get ready to close up shop in 30 minutes. I look forward to my rest tonight. I've had a slow, peaceful, blessed day today and am so thankful for it.

Have a good evening all...

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I rarely go to my home page, so I don't notice the changes. I wonder if they had a problem with people putting up naughty things!?

Well, Bren, that was a sugar rush! I hope you are sitting down and resting. What you need to be doing is eating light - yogurt, pudding, applesauce (no sugar added), turkey meat with nothing on it (and no bread), skim milk or one of the nut milks, and then on of the liquid antacids every two hours. You eat two of those things every two hours as well for a few days and that should calm your tummy down. If you need to, get you some Glucerna to keep your sugar levels okay, that should not hurt the tummy.

I went to the Endodontist today. He is going to open the tooth back up in June and see if there is any bacterial infection in there. He said something about having missed a crack - well, no duh, there are at least three cracks in the tooth, that's why it needs a cap! It will have been 6 months since my root canal by the time he gets back in there. I was worried about needing to get a cap this year without it being covered by my insurance, but at this rate, I won't be getting it until next year any way - LOL! I told the dental assistant that I hated that I kept coming in for this little bit of pain, but none of my other teeth hurt when I flossed around them or brushed them. Something isn't right or I am being overly sensitive. She didn't say I was being overly sensitive so I guess there must be something no right.

Well, that is all the news I have for now. You are in my prayers, ladies. Love ya

God bless, Kim

I just noticed the change when I went to my page.

I was very glad to note that the pain was much less yesterday when I got up. That was a rough 10 days. Now if the other things would line up and walk a straight line I'd be really happy.

Those pills are for arthritis pain, called Arthritin? I'm trying to cut down on the meds. I normally use the ibuprofen, and the cardiologist has me on one regular dose aspirin daily.

It's cold here today...only 59 and the AC is on for Sharon, while I have a jacket on. Brrr... It's cloudy and more rain is expected the next couple of days.

I have indigestion, feel cranky and mean....I shopped at Office Depot against my will, was really hungry when I got done, went to Taco Bueno next to the OD, then was mad at me for that.......arrgh emoticon then had two donuts for good measure. I am done now and am gnawing on a Tums. Plus my allergies are kicking me pretty bad today so I am extra whiny...I know you can't tell emoticon

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Boy! I really don't like the new format for Spark. I used to love looking at everyone's Spark pages. Now - Spark picks your background and all you get is a banner? Not an improvement in my book.

I'm so glad about your foot, praise the Lord. Your pills sound like anti-migraine pills almost, except they usually contain ibuprofen, acetaminophen and caffeine. I had to stop taking them because of the ibuprofen even though they worked for me. I would take my tramadol, and the acetaminophen and caffeine when I felt a migraine coming on hoping that would knock it out before I had to take the heavy duty stuff, and often it would, but now I just take the Aceta and the caffeine since I'm off the other stuff for now. The caffeine and the migraine med keep me up all night!

I haven't heard yet from the pain center. I suppose they are checking to see if my insurance will cover the shots. Hopefully they will. I've done some of the exercises that the NP gave me to do, but it hurts more to do them than not to, so I don't get very excited to do them, especially on the right side. Sometimes they hurt my tummy because of the hiatle (sp?) hernia I have.

We are having some gorgeous weather the past couple of days, but I think we have some more rain coming in. We had some good rain a couple nights ago, but our days have been really nice.

Love y'all. Thanks so much for your prayers.

God bless, Kim

Lately it seems I don't get much mileage from my veggies. I did get another bag of the baby cukes at HEB and was shocked! They were on sale for .98 cents! I've never caught these on sale before. They run 2.98 normally. I'll do up my salad bowls today so I can grab and gobble.

My foot is so much better this morning and I am so thankful. Those arthritis strength pills will be a no-no, tho I'll use this one bottle. They have 250 mg. Aspirin and 250 mg. Acetaminophen and 65 mg Caffeine Anhydrous (anti-inflammatory) per pill with a boatload of warnings. I very rarely have glasses with me so reading any fine print before I buy isn't done. I took two this morning about an hour before getting up.

Well, you still don't know much! I'm like you....give me some details and outline a plan of action! We will sure be praying with you and for you, that the shots do a good job. With your sensitive system, there are so many limits to what you can take....or do.

Speaking of "doing" ....well, I did very little yesterday so today I'll aim higher. I need to send myself to Boot Camp for old folks.

I have a new baby cat showing up... an adorable, fat, fluffy, yellow ball I saw it for the first time yesterday at the food bowl and it had returned this morning and was waiting with the group. After they all leave, I'll drag my trash out and get my day started.

Be blessed today....love, hugs and prayers....


In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I hope that they work for you too! Bummer about the veggies. We usually just have to throw out the salad mix! LOL!

I made some more muffins today and added a little less cayenne! Hopefully these won't burn my mouth, just give me a touch of heat! I have Barbi my recipe for Oolong tea fat buster and she was going to try that, but I haven't heard how she likes it yet. I really like it, although the cayenne in that has to be a smidge!!! LOL! Oolong tea, unsweet coconut milk, Stevia to taste, a dash of cinnamon and a smidge of cayenne. All to taste. Their recipe calls for a pitcher full to drink on all day. I just make a cup of it and drink it warm because I can't drink that much. If you want to make a pitcher full of cold tea use three bags and steep the bags until the water is cool, then add the other ingredients to taste, then ice. It keeps your metabolism up all day, and is refreshing. But make sure it stays cold, or the coconut milk will separate!

I did hear from the MRI doc, but the nurse didn't tell me much. They are referring me to their pain center, not the one I went to before, for a couple of shots in my right SI. They didn't really give me any info on my spine other than a slightly bulging disc somewhere, but she didn't say. Asking her a lot of questions would have been useless. I asked Wade if he could get the results of the test for me. They want to see me after I've had the shots, which usually takes a couple of months. I just hope that the shots work this time. Most of the bad pain is on that right side, so we will see how things go. The pain that I get when doing the dishes or running the vacuum and things like that is in the middle of my back, and that is where I think I have the bulging disc, at least it was when I had an MRI in 2009. I just want to know what all is wrong and what they can do to stop the pain! I had to stop the one pill that was supposed to help the pain because it caused a lot of pain in my tummy. Now I am having a lot of nausea. I started to take some bromelain thinking that might help my tummy, but I think that might be the culprit this time, so I am going to stop taking that too. What a mess I am. But, even if I don't know what is going on, God knows exactly what is going on and He will lead me in the right direction and give me the grace to go through this if healing isn't in His plan. I can handle whatever He has planned for me!

Y'all have an awesome day. Love ya

God bless, Kim

Thanks Doll!
I picked up some arthritis strength meds at the store when I shopped this morning. I needed a few things for the office and a few for me. I'll try them later. It was $6.00 for 28 so I'm hoping they are worth the money!

I was sorting the fridge and the bag of baby cucumbers, never opened , that I got a few days ago were all rotted. Those are very rarely worth the money! Especially when I have to toss them all in the trash emoticon

The bushes outside my door have a couple of pinks blooming and a whole lot of yellows that were beaten up by the storms. It's been a couple of years since I fooled with them. I used to trim them back, fertilize on occasion and keep the dead stuff clipped off. I should do that again, just to play outside.

I'm going in a bit early so I can stop and snag more cucumbers and some pretty tomatoes. I had salad goods and spinach but did want some cucumber. I'll try again....and hope I actually get to eat them!

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I loooove roses! Those are beauties, Missy! I have a ton of buds on one of my roses, and another has a bunch of blooms. I pretty much just leave them alone and let them do their thing. When I pay attention to them, they tend to die! Mom cut the two out by the road back this year and one of those is going to bloom like crazy this year! She can manage them, she has green thumbs - me, not so much! Wade, Mom and I planted some veggies and some flowers yesterday. I pretty much just handed them the plants out of the boxes, they dug the holes and put the plants in! LOL! We finally figured out where my pumpkins will go so I'll do those sometime soon.

Bren, still praying sweetie, hope you get to feeling better soon.

God bless, Kim

That's beautiful Missy! I can almost smell them emoticon Mine have been beaten badly in the storms we've been having. Oh yay! 99! A really good number! It does feel good to see those things show positive results.

I'm praying for a tow back to shore this week. I've been really dragging, exhausted and in much pain. I'd like to sleep thru it all but that's not possible.

Kim, I'd posted twice and lost my long winded reports! My computer at home was acting up, then the one at the office was off line for a couple of hours. I'm not sure what was up with that one but our monitor for the gates went off and it's an on-line thing....so I couldn't see who was coming in and out but still had them on the activity log.

I've been so tired (and whiny) that even reading fell off. I'd be in bed by 8:00 and ready for sleep, and taking a lot more Ibuprofen than I like. I'm hoping to see improvement starting today.

You ladies stay on my prayer list and I still do that, even when I'm whining emoticon I love you all and thank God for you....



In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Hiya Kimmy!
Thanks for having Barbi come hunting for me! I'm having computer issues today but have been laying low the past week with foot and hip/back pain and not interacting much past work. I'm sorry you were worried but so thankful for the LOVE and care the call meant to me!

I'll play catch up soon, once my "issues" are dealt with and the whining ceases...or at least slows down.

I love you Honey Girl!

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Still no news from my MRI even though I have called the doctor's office twice now. Kind of frustrating. If no one else responds to this team by the end of the weekend I guess it is time to shut her down. Love y'all. Kim

No news on the MRI today.

Had a nice Mother's Day with part of the family yesterday. Wade was working and my niece had to go to work right after lunch. We ate together and then sat around and talked until we decided to play the card game Golf. It's pretty fun. Everyone left in time to get to the evening services at their Churches. We spent the time out of doors and a wind kicked up near the end of our time and I just started sneezing and sneezing. My allergy meds kicked the bucket I guess! I'm glad they waited until it was time to go! LOL!

I hope y'all had nice days too.

Love ya.

God bless, Kim

That is soooo cool! I wish I could remember my Nana's china set. I had my other grandmother's china set, but gave the whole thing to my sister this past year when she started buying pieces to try to fill out her half of the set. I was given the whole set, but gave her half of it (it was 12 place settings). I wanted to leave it to my niece, but thought that since I never used it and my sister was spending her money senselessly to fill it out when I had the pieces, I would go ahead and give it to her now and she could give it to my niece when she thought she was ready for it. I kept one plate that had been broken so that I could remember it!

God bless, Kim

Praise the Lord, Missy! What an answer to prayer! What a special day too.

We have a magnolia in our front yard. The blooms are a bit different than the one in your picture, the petals are closer together and bigger. Our tree is really tall and has a perfect cone shape. We have never had it trimmed but it just grows that way - it's gorgeous. I sure hope it never gets hit by lightning or falls on our house! Yikes! The birds love it. We keep our bird feeder in that tree. Of course the squirrels love it up there too. I can't get too close to it though when the flowers are blooming, there is too much scent for me! It's the same with the Royal Paloma (I think that's the name), the scent is overwhelming, it makes me nauseous with that tree. So, how old are you exactly, Missy, that you remember the antiques from an 1870's home??? Hmmm??? LOL! Just teasing!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! To all the moms out there! Love you gals!

God bless, Kim

Thank you, Kim.

We had a very scary moment coupled days ago..we heard gun shots in our back yard and saw the flash from the gun..we were totally scared! I called 911 and they showed up 20 minutes later and scanned the back yard and the apartments in behind us and found no sign of anymone..we never found anything left behind ..of any shots fired...the weirdest thing ever!! It was the same sound..we heard 21 months ago when people were killed next to us..it was definitely a gun! but..when my daughter heard of it..it scared her and brought us back together..so..what the devil meant for evil..God turned for GOOD!!...She came by yesterday and I hugged her so tight...I miss her...My sweet boys got me a Hisbiscus Tree ..I love it..and my daughter is coming by tomorrow...I'M SO HAPPY..I will keep praying and I belive in answered prayers!

oh..my hubby and my two boys took me to a Botanical Garden yesterday..I was totally in love..I saw so many beautiful flowers and trees..they had them all marked..which was neat..I saw Indian Strawberries...and they had a huge Sweet Magnolia Tree..that smelled so good..and I will post a pic of the flower below...it smelled so delicious!!

We went into a home built in 1870 and everything was still original in the house...It was so neat..had antiques I remember seeing as a child...It was a good history lesson for my boys.and a very nice experience.

I hope these people aren't just hoarders! Maybe they have stuff in there that has been in the family for years and they just didn't want to get rid of it! It could be worth some bucks. But if they are hoarders, then there could just be a lot of stuff in there! I hope the families find good memories!

No word yet on the MRI, not until Monday or Tuesday I suppose. I just checked my regular docs patient portal to see if anything might be there, but there was nothing. It's hard to wait for the information. I think what they will tell me is to go to the pain center and try the shots again. Hopefully what I saw on my insurance benefits page was true, injections are free. It didn't say what kind of injections, it just said injections! What I get in my back are injections - no??? Yes! But they will find some way to make me pay for it - they are just that way! LOL!

Well, Wade is going to bring some dinner home so we can have something with Mom this evening, since he has to work tomorrow. We are going to the BIL's for lunch tomorrow to celebrate Mother's Day. I bought a top for Mom, but her patio is mostly her Mom's Day present. Wade also bought her these 1/2 barrel planters to go beside her front door that are a surprise for her. They serve two purposes, they prettify that area as well as keep people from walking over the pipe that is right under the river rock in that area! AHA! It looks so beautiful!

Well, y'all have a very wonderful Mother's Day tomorrow. Missy, enjoy the day. Let your son give you a very happy day and don't mourn that your daughter isn't there, at least not where your son and husband can see during the time they are trying to give you a happy day! That's not a scolding, just an encouragement for a happy day for all of you! I love you!

Love you all. Kim

God bless, Kim

I had a really awful night, after a truly good day at work. I had a set back with my right foot from the incident Thursday morning. The pain, swelling, inflammation and spasms pretty much all night, waking me every few minutes. I had to get the walker out of the closet and was up at midnight, trying to rest in the recliner. I really need to respect my joints and take better care of me emoticon I prayed a lot and cried some too. God was with me, in my pain and despair and I finally did get some rest.

I am so glad the MRI went as well as it did and hey, I want one of those Zanax before lab work and especially if I should go to the hospital again...knock me out prior to poking and prodding, please. Tho the ones doing my labs of late haven't hurt me like they did in the hospital...they were awful!

Hopefully you will have some results soon and at least some options to work with. Continued prayers for you lovely ladies.

I called to reset my appointment for the cardiologist in October. It was scheduled for a Thursday and I need appointments for my off days. This one will be on sale day which is ok too, since Sharon will be at the office that day. The 19th of October and the appointment is at 1:30, after our sale..

I had a really busy day and rented five units yesterday. Two of our long term tenants passed away this past week. That's sad......having a storage unit with things tucked away for 22 years is sad as well. The wife is left to deal with two units and she's in poor health herself, and the care taker of the two sisters who had the other two units (both now deceased) will be in this weekend with paperwork, POA forms and check those and decide what to do with it all. If one hasn't had space for the stuff all this time, they still won't. They have units they rented in 1994 and 1995.

I stopped at Wal-Mart before work yesterday for pants and shirts....I didn't get laundry done and all my better fitting things are in the pile! I'd already bought new socks. I'm pitiful! I may do it tomorrow before work. I've done it before, in the walking boot and while it's more of a struggle, it can be done. We shall see.

I'm off to have my coffee and get my day started. Be blessed........strengthened and at rest in Jesus.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Hate to hear about those dips y'all have. I pray that you are able to even out your numbers. I also pray that your hip doesn't hurt for long, Bren!

I had a Zanax to take before the MRI. I also had one for the last MRI and don't remember it really doing anything at all. Well, I felt this one start to kick in about 10 minutes before they took me back. I was woozy and started feeling tired. I fell asleep in the machine about 2 minutes after she got me in there and slept through the whole thing. I woke up once, looked to the side and saw out of the machine, then fell right back to sleep! Loved it! I slept again at home for a couple more hours as well. The open machine wasn't scary at all, at least not for the two minutes I was awake! LOL! Haven't heard what the results are yet though, probably won't until Monday or Tuesday.

My appointment with the Endodontist was an in and out. I saw the assistant. She poked and prodded and then came back from talking to the doctor with a prescription for a wash that I do in the morning and night. It might be an infection in the gum. Who really knows why this tooth keeps aching now and again when I move it! I figure if I don't touch it this week I can honestly say it stopped hurting when I see him a week from now! LOL! Of course I will have to stop brushing that tooth and flossing it as well. Think they'll notice that?!

Not much else going on with me. Y'all have a blessed day. Love ya

God bless, Kim

Kim, I hope the MRI wasn't too awful and that it shows something they can help you with. You all remain in my prayers daily and I sure appreciate all of yours for me, too!

Oh Missy! Those do feel really bad and recovery takes awhile. Please be careful! I have four monitors in various places so can check easily. Treating is still a work in progress. I hope this won't be a regular problem for you.

My weight is still a major problem and will be for awhile but I will chip away at it. I'd be real happy to see your 208 Kim! I've been too lax for too long at my spot emoticon

I hurt myself again yesterday....I'd stepped on my stool (painful enough) to work with the bulbs in my ceiling fan. My right foot was on top of the end table at the end of the bed for balance. Coming down, I missed the stool and went straight to the floor, throwing my left hip out. I was in a lot of pain all day at work and pretty cranky. I'd left a note for the manager tho and maintenance came in and took care of it for me so I have light this morning! He cleared the AC line while he was in here too, so hopefully that won't be dripping in my closet floor.

I had a busy day at work but was able to pace myself, get some rest and mental time for me. I am thankful for that. It will be more of the same today and for the weekend, but perhaps with less pain, I can perk up and pay attention emoticon

Be blessed sweet friends.......ad be good to yourselves today. I will do the same. Starting with coffee and quiet time....and gratitude for the blessings of this new day.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

What an awesome picture, Missy! You must have one of those green thumbs like my MIL has.

I went back to the Endodontist (or something like that) today. He didn't even see me. His assistant poked and prodded and then talked to him and he gave her a prescription for a liquid I will swish in my mouth for one minute twice a day. He thinks it might be a gum infection. I'm not going to touch it during the next week so when I see him next week I can honestly tell him I've had no pain, then I can go to my dentist and tell him to just go ahead and put on the cap! Because it only hurts when I floss and when I push on the front or back of the tooth! Sometimes my implant on the top hurts and then I know that the bottom tooth is hurting too. But after all this time, if they can't figure it out, well, I'm done!

I go in for my MRI on my back at 4:15, so please pray for calm for me. I don't like closed in spaces. The doc said that I am getting the open one, but I'm not sure what that means. I am taking a sedative, so we will see how things go. I hope I fall asleep! LOL!

Talk to y'all later. Love ya

God bless, Kim

You know what they say when something hurts - don't do it! I bite the inside of my lip all the time and now I have this callous there and that makes biting it more likely - grrr! Although, when I read, I like to take hold of the callous with my teeth now for some reason - I guess it keeps my mouth from drooping open and me drooling! LOL!

Another storm last night - phew, the rain was really pouring down. Wade was out of town for the night getting reading to do a CAP inspection at another hospital. It's a really big deal these CAP inspections. The supervisors of each section of his lab here are doing an inspection at a Duke satellite hospital in Durham today to make sure that their lab is living up to the standards set by the muckety mucks who set those standards. I mean, I want to know that when they run a test, their machines are doing the tests correctly! Well, my special honey is there making sure they are following the rules! Pretty special deal! He takes it very seriously too! Each person has to take a test to be sure they understand the rules before they can do the inspection as well. Wow, my guy is really smart! I can't remember what book I read last night! Good think people's health isn't in my hands! LOL!

Not much going on with me, so I'll let y'all go, just stopped by to wish y'all a happy Tuesday. Love ya

God bless, Kim

I've only had one MRI and that was enough for me. They did put me in something when I had my stress test done, what was that? I'll be praying for ease and comfort when you go in Kim. Those side effects of meds are often a deal breaker and it sounds like you have one with that stuff.

I would think those land changes would have a major effect on your searching. I'd be confused all the time!

I slept in until 5:30, and would have liked more time but I had five lovelies waiting at my door for their breakfast emoticon I then put my lounger thing back on but felt I should be dressed properly for "chores" as a lounger implies I'm going to be lounging about and I need more from me today. After some coffee and the ibuprofen kicks in, I'll get to that list. Laundry needs to be done but it may just wait until tomorrow.

I finally got batteries for my camera. Then I had to figure out how to install them, it had been so long since I used it. I thought it was up, down, up.....or was it down, up, down. Neither way worked until I held the power button for a few seconds and yippee! She works. I finally found the little positive-negative marks with a little flashlight. That certainly helps emoticon

Sunday night I woke myself up three times when I bit my tongue. emoticon That hurt something awful. Once was more than enough. Now it's sore and whiny. Oh well....it will heal.

Have a wonderful, blessed day ladies.....no matter what. Love, hugs and prayers......



In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Frogs and lizards, they get ya every time! Sneaky little buggers!

I think I am going to just have to stop my diclofenac/misoprostol altogether. I tried to take it every other day, but the nausea and mild pain are just too much. I'm afraid it is going to do damage to my tummy. On the day I don't take it my tummy does so much better - and I really don't notice that much difference in my pain level whether I take it or not - so not much of a problem making the choice there. I go to take my MRI this Thursday. I am going to have to check to make sure if I go to Frye Care or to the hospital, because they mentioned that it was the open machine, and I'm sure that the one that I was in before was not an open machine - the top was just a couple of inches away from my face but the end of it was open. I will have to look up open and closed MRI on Google.

Oh, I saw this "Who Are You Anyway" last night and this girl had this dilemma with her family. On one census they were from Turkey and on another they were from Greece. Well I have the same dilemma, sometimes they are from Prussia, sometimes from Germany, sometimes from Austria, and sometimes from Romania. For her it was because the territory was originally Turkey and then became Greece, and I wonder if for my family the area that they were from changed hands to all of these different places and if I can take what each of the census' said for that year and find out which country had that area in that year I could pin point where they were from exactly. I am at least going to try by looking up maps for those years. We'll see how that goes.

Well off on my adventure. Love y'all.

Oh, I was 208.8 this morning, woohoo!

Your frog scared me and I was looking for him, Missy! LOL You are blessed with your spot and meeting the Lord there is a bonus.
I hope your efforts pay off too, Kim. I enjoy hearing of and seeing others gardens.

I ran out of steam before I got to the cleaning at the office yesterday so will do that this morning when I get there. This is laundry week at home so I'll be busy on my off days coming up.

We got some more rain last night but I slept thru it. I can do that with storms too unless I put a hearing aid in emoticon I've got tummy rumbles this morning so I hope they tamper down before work. It's really uncomfortable.

Have a number 5 day (or beyond!) I told Sharon last Monday that we would start at a 5 instead of a 3. You know, that attitude thing? Well it helps!

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

You're right, Missy, gardening is so calming. I'm good at growing bite size cantaloupe and watermelon, and I can grow peas, and green beans and zucchini and cucumbers. I'm going to give pumpkins a try with Mom's deep green thumb this year. She's already encouraging me!

The muffins are hot but I am growing used to it. The cayenne and cinnamon help raise ones' metabolism, and that helps with weight loss, so I'll deal with it.

God bless, Kim

We had almost a two week stretch with some heavy rains here. It's beautiful, sunny and clear today with a cold front moving in tonight so the high for tomorrow is supposed to be in the low 60's!

I hope you like the muffins ok with the pepper in them. I like hot stuff, to a degree. I haven't had anything with heat lately except the yummy jalapeno cheddar smoked sausage. I missed it bad for a few days but was able to walk by it today and not even pick it up. I did however, find some marked down "dessert"...the assorted cheesecake bites (are in the freezer) and a single serving of carrot cake for .59 cents. I had that with my lunch today. It was yummy too! I won't do that often.

There wouldn't be too much I wouldn't at least try....but the short list has Limburger cheese (ugh), sushi, snails....you get the picture! You do remind me of my Mom, Kim....with the aversion to a vast number of veggie related items! She would not willingly eat garlic and I use it a lot. She became very suspicious of my cooking as I was guilty of sneaking it into things.
Tonight is salad night and I have a couple of boiled eggs for the protein. I'll have some grapefruit and a yogurt as snacks if needed.

I'll go to work early to get started on those credit card payments. I got some walking in at the office yesterday and did a round at Wal-Mart this morning. I'll make an effort to increase my activity this week because I know it will feel good....once it's done!

Have a blessed and beautiful day ladies....I'll do the same emoticon

We've been having a lot of rain here the last three or four days. Wade is trying to get the last step done on Mom's porch, but it has to be dry to do it!

I finally got my muffins made - well, they are on their last few minutes in the oven. Praise the Lord for the energy and the strength. I'll be back in a second, the timer just went off! Ok, I'm back, that didn't take hardly any time at all - I bet you didn't even get through one chorus of the Jeopardy theme! LOL! I put some Cayene pepper in this time - can't wait to see if that one tsp makes them too hot for me to eat them! I am not a fan of too hot stuff - well, of hot stuff at all!

We had a game going on my other team. We would mention a food that we would eat and ask if you would eat them too, then you would mention a food that you would eat and the first one to respond would answer yes or no and ask about a food they like. It was lots of fun, and there were lots of really weird foods that got mentioned, and quite often foods that got repeated. Hot foods, tomatoes, and peppers were always a yuck for me! Oh, and anything with avocados too - me no likey those either. I'm just a picky eater! What can I say?! I have also learned that ginger has an adverse reaction on my body as well, it burns my tongue and the drops cause terrible gas as well. The ginger root burns my tongue really badly, the drops not as badly, but the drops cause the terrible gas. It's supposed to help the tummy, but not mine. I'll give my SIL what I have left of my drops. This little bottle I got cost slightly over $30.00 so I will definitely not throw it away, and she is into essential oils anyway. The ginger sauce we get in the Japanese restaurant always made my face turn red. I guess I must me allergic to ginger in some way although it doesn't always present itself in the same way - strange. Well, that is far more than you ever wanted to learn about my food likes and dislikes and side effects! Old ladies - gotta love 'em!

Talk to y'all later. Love you - emoticon

God bless, Kim

Wow...that was a nice blessing to pass around, Missy. The whole gardening process still awes me....how from one little seed comes such a wonderful harvest, given good soil, sun and water and tender care. The work is good as well emoticon ...and it IS work! It's been many years since I did that kind of labor, when David and I were still together. We've been divorced for 26 years now. I wouldn't be able to do that anymore emoticon
My labors of love now go into my cats and my job. No being in the dirt.

I have a steamer pot I love and an electric steamer but I mostly do rice in it. It's been a long time since I used it for my veggies but it does a great job for both.

I saw where you'd dipped below 210 Kim and that's great. I want to go there again! That too, requires work! I can do that, I've just not been doing it lately.

It's time for things to pick up at the office for a mad dash of 10 days and then back to the slump. I'll get credit cards posted tomorrow and today will be my putter and prep work as well as cleaning....

Have a good weekend ladies....

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

That's a good reward, Missy!

It sure does hurt when family turns their back on you, and that's okay, just don't let them rob you of your joy - that comes from Jesus! And don't let the prodigal in the family rob the rest of your family of the joy of Jesus either, keep that joy and that faith flowing even though there are hurts going on. If your family knows they can use these situations to hurt you, they will keep on doing it; but if you can show them that you can still have joy and faith in the midst of their ugliness then they have no weapon against you. And they will see the fruit of your faith as well.

I am so glad that I do not suffer from diabetes. God has blessed me in that! I haven't eaten very well this week. I am going to have to do much better this coming week for sure!!! I haven't see much of a change on the scale though, so the times I haven't done well have been off set by the times I do well, which is far more often!

Love y'all bunches.

God bless, Kim

Woohoo Kim! Feeling more like yourself is a good thing emoticon
Ouch-ee-wawa on the upcoming dental and spine appointments. I'm having sympathy pains. emoticon I'm hoping all procedures are not painful for you. You do tolerate pain a whole lot better than I do! You and Missy have both been thru that grinder emoticon

It looks like it wants to rain again today but it's beautiful out there. It's really windy but that's almost a daily thing.

I'm planning on doing some office cleaning tomorrow since I can't do payments after the final close today, until Sunday. I'll find some constructive things to occupy myself.


In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

I pushed myself to go to Wal-Mart yesterday. I needed syringes and cat food and a few other things. I asked about the Lipitor while there. They had already put it back since I never picked it up but I just wanted the cost for now anyway. It's $30 a month and I get 90 days of the Simvastatin for $40 so I'll use it. I'd just gotten the refill before I saw my cardiologist.

I got some softer granola bar things yesterday. Those crackers and cookie type things are just too hard and I don't want to lose another tooth for awhile. I'll give those away at the office....set them out with the candy. emoticon

I got several things marked off my to do list while I was off. If I could spend 30-45 minutes a day, dealing with those things, it would help me enjoy my space a lot more.

My sugar is 84 this morning so I'll make sure I have breakfast in a bit and watch myself. BP was up....sodium related I'm sure.

I've had my AC on a few times already and the line is leaking in the walk in closet. The floor was soaked pretty good before I noticed it and I have a tub in there now to collect the water...while I wait for it to be tended to.

It's my Monday and I'm off to work today......have a blessed day all.

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.

Missy, make sure that you are counting your carbs. Fruits and veggies are carbs, and if that is all that you are eating I am afraid that your sugar is going to go sky high. Please tell me that you have a plan for a protein at each of your meals to feed your muscles and fat to feed your brain. Fruits and veggies are vital, but I honestly don't think that that being all you eat is healthy either. In God's Word we aren't told to just eat fruits and veggies, and unfortunately we don't live in the Garden of Eden any more, so when Noah came off of the Ark in the new world God gave him the command to eat meat as well as the food that he raised from the ground. Our bodies need both of those things. You can get protein from other sources other than meat if you are dead set on being a vegetarian, but please make sure that you are getting your poteins and fats too. Your body needs all three.

I was down to 209.8 this morning. That is the first time in I can't remember how long I have broken 210. Don't know if I will stay there, but I'm not going upwards by big numbers any more, I'm yo-yoing by smaller numbers and inching my way downwards again. Praise the Lord.

Wade was able to talk to our niece last night when he got home from work. It's so refreshing to have a niece or nephew who actually wants to spend time with you! The ones who have lived here all the time rarely spend time with us or talk to us. This niece has been to the house, in the past month, at least six or seven times. All put together in the past eleven years we've lived here the other three haven't been here that many times. She loves to stay with her G-ma. But Wade said a lot of the same things I did and then some other good stuff too. She was surprised at how in sync we were in the things that we said. Yep, we talk, we read, we pray together just to make sure we are on the same page! I am so grateful to God for this opportunity. God does the work, we plant the seeds. We can't change or save anyone - God has to do that.

Well, not much else going on. I turned the AC on for the first time. I sure hope it cools things down soon! Oh, Missy, I didn't feel this earthquake. I felt the one a few years ago, but not this one. I'm glad. That other one really left me "shaken", no pun intended. I had a wee bit of an adrenaline rush when the house started moving and I didn't know what was going on. I'm glad I couldn't feel this one, although this time I think I would have figured it out better. Did you feel it?

Love y'all.

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

1Co 15:33 Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals." 34 Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.
