You will be happy to know that I made the ultrasound appointment for my cyst yesterday.

This morning, I got to school to volunteer (headache in tow) and found out that they had already finished the task. How they finished it only 8 minutes after school started I don't know..and to be honest I don't really care. I went in to our PTA closet area and cleaned and organized it and went home. When I got home, I cleaned the cobwebs off of the front porch, played with the dog, straightened up the upstairs, threw a load of laundry in, cleaned the closet and came down here with my hubby. My hubby who just got up to make me a loverly breakfast. I sure do love that man.

I'm feeling like I need a nap already..when did this day start again? 40 bazillion hours ago?

Bible study is goin great. We're both having fun with our classes and the books that go with them.

Mom n Dad got back (FINALLY) from Maui last night. We got to visit with them for awhile and then they took their pups and went home. But, they came bearing gifts! Chris and I got 2 super sweet shirts (each!) and I got some neato bandito earrings. The kiddos got backpacks shirts and then ankle/wrist bracelets for A and a cool turtle necklace type thing for J. He loves it. He was very sad he couldn't wear it to school this morning. I told him he can wear it anywhere he wants, EXCEPT for school. I just know with the way those dudes play it will either hit someone in the face (it's big and bulky and wooden with a stone type thing on it..I can just see him using it to "kill Goliath"). So he was happy with being able to wear it everywhere else. Good compromise.

Soon I will go down and pick up my new vinyl lettering thing from my lady in Kuna. This one is HUGE. It will take up a 20"x24" area. It will say:

I believe in the sun even if it doesn't shine.
I believe in love even if I do not feel it.
I believe in God even when He is silent.

It's beautiful. I'm going to put it up in the nook of my stairs where the flower arrangement hangs now. I'll take a pic of it when it's up. I'm so excited!! It was fun to work with the lady to figure out the font of the letters and size of what I wanted, the color of the vinyl..I'm addicted. I just love living out here in tiny ol' Kuna USA. Small towns can be so much fun, if you let them be.

OH did I mention that I made salsa the other day? It's good.

Well, I'm gonna cut this short. But, I love you more than you think I do. I think of you more often than you might imagine. And, I smile & send up a prayer when your name crosses my thoughts. You're important, and you're never alone. Remember that!



  1. Love your new wall phrase. I'm sure it will look great. Glad to hear that you're getting the ultrasound. I guess that means that the surgery is getting closer and closer? It will be fine.
    Hope your feeling better with the cold/allergies. Those things can really knock you for a loop. I'll bet it is great having the folks back home, and knowing you, you miss the pups. Enjoy the gifts and wear them with pride and joy.
    We love you guys and miss you so very much. We were talking about that last night.
    We're also glad that your home, friends and family in Houston survived the storm. We thought that you had sold it, so it was a surprise to hear that you still have it. Hope it sells soon for your peace of mind.
    We love you, as always.

  2. Yeah my head is killin's been a long hard day. Sleep would be nice. I'm gonna look into that here in a minute.

    Miss you, too. Glad your ordeal with the green card is coming to an end (hopefully)!

    It's still hard to get ahold of anyone down there in TX b/c of the power, but hopefully soon we will hear more. The house is still on our credit, but otherwise is not our responsibility..or so it has been said. And so far, it has been the case. We have had not even one little glitch in the arrangement, so that's good. But, there is still always the thought of something going wrong hanging over my head. Will be glad when the Lord sees fit to take it away from us once & for all.

    Looking to have the surgery sometime in October although I really don't have any time free to get it done. Obviously I will have to make time, but it's just not looking to be very easy at all.

    love you dads

  3. Yo I finally got on!!! WOW I love that quote! I am glad that you go to chill kinda today sorta! Can't wait till the 30th and glad you getting your arm done....!!!

  4. Glad you got the ultra sound done and out of the way. The surgery will go well... you will just have to try to be patient with the healing process. We'll all help!

    Love ya!

  5. I didn't get it done yet, just got the appointment made. But, I'm sure everything will go smoothly, my doc is great :)
