Things are moving so fast

Everything is moving so fast, my dearest is going in tomorrow for the gamma knife. He has to be there before sunrise. I am going to follow shortly as I move a little slower that he does.

God is love -- 1 John 4:8

I hope this finds ya'll well.

I am going to . . .

. . . start a small bible study to help us get through the next few months. First a quotation from the bible then allowing time for comments and thoughts then so on...

Psalms chapter 46:1-3

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear through the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and form, though the mountains tremble with its tumult.

My thoughts are that no matter what happens God is here for us and he is our strength.

My hubby got some bad news last week.

We got some very bad news. His meningioma (brain tumor) has started growing again and now 2 of the closest ones have fused together to make 1 bigger one. This is the fifth time we have been through this in the past 16 years. Now we are waiting for the doctors to confur and decide if my sweet honey has had to much radiation. If he has then it means more surgery. We are hoping and praying that he can have the gamma knife procedure again and it takes care of it for once and for all. If not it means a surgical procedure.

I will up date as I know more.

Weekend Update

We didn’t do anything special this past weekend; we just enjoyed being together, which is kinda special. We did have a visit from our Elder, Mark Read. We had a nice visit, we received a text message from Noel while he was with us and he got to say hi to her. She had just gotten back from her “ROTC Drill Competition” They placed 3rd out of 46 or 47 teams. So they did very well.

Did you know we still have snow on the ground from last weeks snowing? It’s shocking to me because even though we have had snow before it usually disappears that same day or the next.

I am looking forward to Saturday, it’s my birthday and I will be the big 50. I can’t believe it, where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday I gave birth to my babies. Now they are young women out to take charge of their world. Boy do I miss them, even hearing them yell “MOM CAN YOU MAKE HER BE QUIET”. I just hope that we always stay close.



Faith is being sure of what we hope for …

My busy weekend

We had company this weekend and when my dearest friend comes to town we turn into teenagers all over again and we can't stop giggling.

She arrived in town and she and I had plans to watch the Dallas Cowboy football game, and we won! That was fun oh and we had to order pizza, they have "The Cowboy Special", I don't know if we ended up with that special because DH wants to have everything thrown on it, except anchovies he also prefers for the onions to be grilled first but I don't know of any place that grilles the onions first.
We went to Joanns and I did some stashing, the we ran to Staples to get some things for DH. One thing I find infuriating about some stores is that they are not handicap friendly, I have heard of 3 point turns but never 10 pointed turns. That was ridiculous even some customers had to come to my assistants when I was doing a one of my 10 point turns. that was because nobody that worked there came to my rescue. I couldn't even get my Hoveround down some of the aisle's, and that just makes me mad. I won't be going back to Staples EVER! I do NOT recommend them if you are handicapped.

After that we came home and ate the fish dinner (out of Racheal Rays 'Big Orange Cookbook') I had made (with help), then we made a bottom to the shade we had put up in the office. We tried fabric glue but it would not stick, I guess its because we were using tulle, but I don't know for sure. And if I remember MacGyver correctly he always had a paperclip, a sock and duct tape and he could fix anything with just those 3 things, so I should have known to get the duct tape out, My DF said that's how she hems her costumes for the musicals that she is in.

We had hoped to watch the UofN game but PPV wanted 30 smackeroores to watch the game. Well being on a fixed income sure makes you very aware of the price of things. I felt like was spending a billion dollars this weekend as it was. Course I didn't spend a billion dollars because I left it in my other jet and it is in the shop. giggle

After my friend left. DH and I watched all the games that came on the tube. Well it was a fun weekend.

How was yours?

Our trip

Our trip was wonderful although exhausting.  We left home about 9:00 am and drove thru north Texas then up into Kansas.  We spent the night in Salina, Kansas at least I think that is the name of the town.  The next morning Noel called in a panic because they had moved the ceremony from 5:00 in the evening to 11:00 in the morning so we rushed to get ready and left as fast as we could, I don’t remember what time it was.  We barely made it.  When we got there, parents were milling around and then they started grabbing seats very fast so Noel told us where to sit for the best view of her.  The ceremony started and we couldn’t really hear what was being said except I heard “yes sir” several times.  The unit came to attention made a precision right turn and then started walking.  They walked past the families and made a left turn got into a two row formation.  The acoustics were terrible so let’s just say there was a lot of mumbling into the microphone.  They played the “Star Spangled Banner” and then they did the repeat after me thing.  Then they were released them and so we spent the rest of the day with Noel, I took a little nap while David and Mom took Noel shopping, David got both of us a University of Nebraska hat’s.  He spent too much money but Noel needed a few things, and you only live once, right?

On Saturday, we got up and went to a picnic with and for Noel’s unit.  It was a very nice day.  We had to leave right after the picnic to head for home.  We stopped in Newton, Kansas (I think that was the name of the town.)  Mom and Bob went exploring the town while David and I rested.  When they got back, they said they had found a little Italian restaurant for dinner.  David and I shared some calamari and spaghetti after dinner all we wanted to do was go back to the hotel and go to bed.  We got up on Sunday and drove the last 7 hours to get home.  Boy howdy, were we ready to be home.

It's official, my youngest daughter took her oath or she was sworn into the Navy ROTC. We went to see it this past weekend. here are some pictures that I took. We are so very proud of her.

Here she is talking with her family before the ceremony.

Here she is in full uniform.

Here she is with her Daddy.

The ceremony was very nice.


I just had to share with you that my DD got a job and she starts September first. Most of you know that she graduated with her master in social work in June about a week before her wedding. She could find a job in Seattle, and that is there lose. I am so happy o have them back in Texas that I would sing it from the roof tops (good thing I can't get up there ... I would surely fall). and I don't do tall things as I am scared of heights. I am anxiously awaiting a phone call to tell me how her first day of work went. I know, I know that I have to wait for her to start the job.


As you can see I have been working my fingers to the nubs trying to finish a gift to my kids. It still needs more work but i hope to be finished soon.
