Good Morning,

I'm so bad at keeping up to date here...Life here is a little kaotic!! Erin is moving to a different housing...which she had to be interviewed for and she was accepted. Praise that she is totally Christian based. Bible study, devotions and church attending ..required. Please pray for her salvation.

My pain tolerance was doing really good...until I felt too good to do some things around the house and went shopping at the mall with Madisyn. I have been back in bed for a couple days. Made it to church on Sunday and home group. Needed to be feed with the Word. Missed my Tuesday morning ladies study on "Lies Women Believe"...excellent study.

Madisyn is doing great at volleyball...she scored 2 with her serve and got the ball over the net and scored that way....can you tell I didn't play volleyball so I haven't a clue on the technical terms. She loves it...Hopefully I will get to her game this Saturday and take some pics.

We celebrated Isaiah's 3rd" happy 2 you" on Saturday...that is how he refers to any birthday. He is so darn cute...and so much fun. He got his 1st Big Wheel and Batman stuff. He is my cuttlebug...I guess all 3 grandkids are!!

I need to get more pics uploaded.

Got delayed with making cards for Ebay...back pain and lots of visits from Erin & the boys.

Yes, someone in our family won a cruise. Our son, Eric won a cruise to the Bahamas! Woo Hoo!!
He entered a contest online and he got the word last week by phone and email that he is going on October 31. We are anxious to see who he takes with him. He finally admitted he has a girlfriend.
He is a very private person and will probably be one of those that just elopes and then lets us know he is married. We are excited for him...just pray for his safety on the ship.

Madisyn started her volleyball and they lost their 1st game. Hoping to go to her next game. She loves it and practices almost every night here at home or her scheduled practices. She LOVES being in 6th grade...she is just to mature for me. At church is involved with the jr. high group...which just doesn't seem possible that she is this old already.

Last week, was a busy week with dr. appts. and I made it to the womens Bible study on Tuesday and plan on going tomorrow. Meet with my bariatic surgeon and almost all of my records have been sent to him and now he will go over it and submit it to my insurance for approval. Process will take about 6-8 weeks.

The pain clinic dr. just gave me another shot in my low back which has given me considerable amount of relief. Now, I can sit up for more than an hour. Thank you Jesus!!

Trying to get back into my studio and make some cards to list on E-bay. Bought stuff to scrapbook Madisyn's 12th b-day party. Her party was in hot pink, orange, lime green and yellow...look for these in the upcoming weeks!!

Have a great evening....

Good morning!!

We have had some awful virus-which caused Mark to have the squirts,Madisyn & I with bad headache and stomach aches. What a week...Mark even stayed home for 2 days which is unheard of. Erin and the boys had it and gave it to us.
Poor little Isaiah had the squirts for 5 days...went through a whole box of diapers.

Today, Madisyn has an overnight b-day party at a hotel tonight...which we usaully don't let her have sleepovers on Saturday nights...because she tends to be too tired for church...this happens to be one of her best every year we make an exception...Jayden is invited to our neighbors little boy's b-day party so he gets to spend the night with us...can't wait too have just him by ourselves.

Madisyn is loving 6th grade...the big middle school experience...cell phone for her birthday...going to 6th grade game with parents to champerone...and walking to the ice cream shop afer school (just a cool hangout.) Growing up way to fast. (Have to remind her ...she is still our little girl.

I will be going to the pain Dr. to get another shot in my lower back on try and get a little more relief...the pain pills just doesn't do it. Pray this will work!! I am not able to sit or stand longer than an hour then have to go lie to speak most of my day is spent in my office(bedroom)...always have to clear a space for Mark when he comes to bed...magazines,books, phone, remote, laptop and etc.

On Wednesday is my 1st appt with my bariatic the process of trying to get approved to have lap band surgery...need to lose be able to surgery on my lower back. I'm getting a little more excited to get the process going...on my way to a healthy-active life.

Enough for now...praying for all of you to have a blessed weekend!!
