Thanks for checking Elsie!

Great sermon on how necessary prayer is to us.

Dd called and said that her hubby has a phone interview on Tuesday evening. They appear to be very interested.

Hi friends! I'm stopping by to ask for prayers as my family and I will be traveling tomorrow. We are finally finished with projects! Can I get an amen?!?! Well, I guess living in a 30 year old house we will never be finished with projects. But let's put it this way we are finished enough that DH has decided we could use a couple of days away. So we are heading out in the morning. I'll hopefully be able to check in tomorrow night to keep my sign in streak going.

Hugs and blessings!
Walking in joy,

Thanks, I finally got an update on my brother. The infection was much worse then the doctor expected. Time will tell. My parents are exhausted, not sure when they are going to leave to come over. This is all so hard on them.

Carrie you are amazing!!! Take a deep breath and relax for just a moment.

Leisa so glad you are back.

Hi friends! I am so BACK! emoticon And lovin' it! I am so thankful for all that God is showing me in this journey. Took some steps today to cut back on spark teams I'm not really active with so I can focus on the ones I want to stay with. I am excited to have the time to encourage and support the folks who have done so much to keep me going!

Carrie...The wedding is August 11? That's my twins' birthday. They will be 9 that day. I hope you have plans for resting after it is over. You have worked so hard!

Hugs and blessings to everyone!
Walking in joy!

Praying for you and your family Leona. Also praying for you Leisa.

I made 9 batches of shortbread on Monday - will try to do another 9-10 today. Yesterday I sat and counted RSVP's - we have @208 plus . The wedding is only 10 days away - so much still to do.

Went to the doctor today for a check up. She changed one of my medicines in the hopes it will help me feel better. Got a tetanus (sp?) shot too and boy is my arm sore! After that DD and I went to get our hair done. That was a lot of fun! She is getting to the age that she loves to do stuff with just me that is girly and I love it! Went out to eat tonight with my brother and SIL to celebrate her birthday. It was nice to relax and visit with them.

Hope everyone is doing well. Thanks again for your prayers. I am determined to hang in there!

My brother is scheduled for surgery tonight at 10 pm. They will attempt to remove as much infection as they can from the foot all the way up to the knee. He will be in the hospital a week and will have an IV antibiotic for six weeks afterwards at home.

This morning dd called and said that my sil had been laid off.

Praying for your body to be refreshed Carrie, we understand.

We are dog sitting for about a month. So they are out splitting wood so that they have the shelter for the dogs. What a blessing. Right now hubby is having problems with his back and dd has a migraine and we are trying to steam clean everything before my parents get here. Ours broke yesterday so we rented one after church and our class, they had it between services instead of tomorrow night as scheduled.

Hi - I'm sorry I haven't been chatting much. I have been so busy with the wedding planning. The major sewing is done - I just got 3 fittings to do. Today I went to Sam's Club and bought all the things I need to start the baking. Tomorrow I will start making shortbread. Tonight I am just relaxing.

Glad you are taking care of you Gayle. Praying for you.

Enjoying my granddaughters. Brought them home after the ice cream social for sil's unit in the military, but not many came. I did have a banana split. They will be headed for home soon.

Posted a small loss this week. Need to pick it up to reach my 5 % goal.

Just wanted to check in briefly to let you all know that I am still in the land of the living. I'm sorry that i have not had a chance to check in. Just caught up on everyone's posts and sending warm refreshing thoughts your way.

The program that i am in is very intense and I am totally exhausted when i get home. I'm learning a lot from the sessions and i am praying that i am able to integrate it into my life. I have seven days to go...if I'm not checking in it is because of this and i hope that everyone understands!

Have fun Elsie!

Got off work early. Worked out and then took dd to an appt. Hubby won't be home until after midnight from the coast and it didn't happen. Looks like several more months. He had to pay the property taxes and had to put the $1500 on the credit card as we don't have it in the bank account. His brother is going to file at least one set a papers Monday when the payment will hopefully be recorded to take the next step in the process. Oh well.

Hubby is on the road pulling a tent trailer to the coast for a friend. Please pray for safety. Tomorrow he will be headed to the county over there trying to finalize the split of his parent's proberty. We are so praying it will happen. We need to get this settled. It has been a long slow process.

Short day yesterday and today. Hopefully I can get a work out in.

Elsie - so glad you arrived safely - where in our fair state of Michigan are you, again?

I have TOPS today - hoping for a loss, though I'm not sure, as I went with the kids to Long John Silver's this week - can we say deep-fat-fried? Sigh.... Woke up at 3am today and couldn't get back to sleep. Now I'm getting sleepy and it's too late to go back to sleep, LOL! emoticon

Have a great day, all!

Carrie, are you exhausted?? sounds like you are very busy w/all the wedding preparations! Sounds like it's been an enjoyable time to spend w/your daughter though.
Leona, so glad you and your grands are having fun together!!

We went to visit my parents today. While we were there Dad called doctors, etc for mom. He is amazing...a true example of Ephesians 5...a husband loving as Christ loves the church. Just praying he doesn't exhaust himself. Mom really isn't doing poorly but he won't let her do barely anything until she's cleared by doctors in the next few days. DS got to show them how he can now ride his big bike w/o training wheels. DD was scared of mom at 1st w/mom's oxygen but thankfully she got better about it. I know it makes mom sad when DD seems afraid of her. I had no sodas today (so timely post Evelyn! lol). I had broken this habit long before but now have to re-break it! Feels like now more than ever I need to get healthy so I can take care of my family and my parents when they need me! Energy for all. =)

Just wanted to let you know what happened when i went to see my psychiatrist yesterday. I had my list which i just put on his desk which he read when he came into the office. We talked about the med increase and he wanted to leave it at that for right now. He was concerned about me and asked if i needed to go back to Progressive in LA...I said NO. That was a three month residential program that i went to in 2009/2010. So he said he wanted me in the Partial Hospitalization Program starting tomorrow. It will be 8 - 2 on Mon - Fri. I have been in this program before but i am still quite nervous about it. I think that it is what is needed right now if for no other reason than to get me out of the apartment everyday! I don't know how much i will be on the computer because they also give homework and i have my homework from my regular therapist. I am very lucky to have an understanding psychiatrist!
Getting ready to go out with my friend so I must dry my hair...

Take care everyone. You are in my thoughts and prayers!

Gayle

Hi friends! Sorry I haven't been around much these last few days. I worked for 6 hours in my classroom Friday and was so happy to get a lot done and organized. But then went out to eat and blew it because I had not eaten while at school. Woke up to a scale that had gone up Saturday. Didn't take it too bad because I knew where that sneaky little pound snuck in from!

DD was sick Saturday and turns out she has strep. Didn't go to church Sunday. My mile long list of things I need to do is hanging over my head like Pooh's rain cloud! emoticon So I am feeling very Eeyoreish! Yes, I'm having a pity party. I know I need to snap out of it, but can't seem to at the moment. My nephew is having a very hard time with chemo. I have my next appt with the dentist in the morning. I could keep raining and raining and raining and I don't like being like this. So usually I avoid people and hide. I'm sorry friends. Please pray.

Older boys are at VBS. Ethan is busy looking at books. Hubby is working, sil just finished working on their car. Got the kitchen clean. Back to work tomorrow.

Talked to my parents and found out they will be here on Aug 1 or 2. Then go to mom's reunion and then back for a few and up to dads. Not sure I will see much of them.

Elsie...you are well on your way now and i am praying for you that your travels will be safe and you arrive in good time.

Leona...Sounds like you all had fun this weekend. I wish that I had just one family picture. The only one that i have that comes close is one with my brothers, sister and mother and step father plus my sister-in-law but they ALL look so miserable. Having said that though I do have one with my unofficially adopted family that is very nice. I haven't put the pictures up on my wall yet but that is one i want to put up.

I get to go see the psychiatrist today. I'm hoping that together we can come up with the reasons i am struggling right now.

Elsie - Have a great trip!

Gayle - God is so good!

Leona - Sounds like your are a great time with the grands!

My weekend was crazy again.

Saturday was "making day" for the wedding. My daughter had friends over to help make the decorations for the wedding. They made pinwheels and twine balls. I got 17 tablecloths cut out, then since they were going too slow with the twine balls, I started helping them. We did 75 paper mache twine balls.

Sunday was church, then in the afternoon I made another bridesmaids dress. In the evening I figured out the sizing for the odd sized tables and made a sample rosette.

Elsie glad your trip is going well. Dd used the bags when she moved across county in her car.

Gayle isn't it amazing the things God directs us to do.

Lots of fun at the kids museum with all the grands yesterday! then family pics today after church at the park. Hopefully we got some good family pics, but won't get them for about a month. It was really hot but at least we were able to get a picnic shelter in the shade. Can't believe it was empty when we got there. Then the boy went to the park and played in the water, but the twins went home as their daddy still had some homework to do.

Good Afternoon,

When the technician called me back yesterday afternoon she said that the Dr wanted to increase one of my medications to be taken twice a day instead of just once. So this morning i tried to remember to take that medication. Then this morning I had a bone density test done at Costco and found out that i am very close to having osteoporosis. One of the readings that was taken...if it is -2.5 or less it means that you have the disease...mine was -2.0 so the pharmacist told me that i needed to start taking Calcium and Vitamin D supplements. And I'm officially too young to have this test! Glad that i found out now so i can hopefully reverse it in my favor.

Hugs to all who want and need them.

Jenn high fives are a guaranteed smile from the twins.

Gayle, hugs!! Glad you called the doctor.

Elsie did you meds come? Be safe. Praying for you to have a delightful time.

Lots of fun at the twins bday party last night. Was great that they are finally getting use to dd family. This is the first time they have really played with them and have gone to her and her hubby without crying from just being around them.

Today took them all to the kid's museum today. They played and played and played. Hopefully we got some good pic. Dd made matching jumpers and vests for all of them and then bought matching shirts. I will try and post a pic in a blog when I get them from dd.

After a really bad week I decided to call my psychiatrist this afternoon and managed to get an appointment for Monday afternoon. I did this because I don't much like feeling this way. I have been isolating myself a lot this week to the point that i haven't even gone downstairs to check my mail. I feel like i am drowning but i can't swim!

Glad that everyone seems to be doing well and enjoying themselves....

Leisa, sounds like a really fun scavenger hunt!

My sis and her 2 boys came over today. Great visit and my 1st time "tutoring" my nephew. Not sure how well it went but I tried. He got a lil grumpy w/me b/c he wanted to go play. Poor kid...mean aunt jennifer wouldn't let him until we finished our work. lol He informed me that high fives are no longer cool. who knew?!? lol Hope he doesn't tell my ds that...we thrive w/high fives! lol

I'm hoping to get to the orchard tomorrow w/the kiddos and pick some peaches. I'm going to can them. I've only canned jams/jellies so if you have any tips,etc. I'm all ears!! =)

Hello friends! Just stopping by to see how everyone is doing today. I hope everyone is staying cool and hydrated. We are having pop up summer storms most every afternoon here.

My kids and I are actually having some fun together today! No cleaning projects! emoticon DD's room is done! So today we are going around the community doing a "Back to School" scavenger hunt. You go to 12 local businesses and pick up clues as to where a hidden backpack is. We have 9 so far and plan to get the other 3 tomorrow. The local newspaper will be drawing student and teacher winners to receive school supplies! I am really hoping my chances to win the teacher one are good as I am always buying stuff for my classroom. Ok...off now to paint fingernails with DD.

Take care everyone! Walk in joy!

Trying not to fall asleep. Hubby and dd are making BLT and grilled onions and zucchini boats. My feet are hot. I took a defensive driving course for work. Have to do it every three years. The class is so much easier then the online course. Afterwards I worked out at the pool and now I am tired. My feet are so hot they put ice on them.

Good Morning Spark Friends! I hope you all have a wonderful day. Sending prayers your way.

I am going to sit down now and watch Tangled while I hand sew the buttons onto the vests.
