It's Raining, it's pouring......

Don't know what it is like where you are but it is WET here in South Texas! The back yard is a total lake, and there are fast moving rivers going down the street. No chance that the dog will go outside to do her business (not that she was doing such a great job of it before but we were making progress!) Don't know what it is about Bichon's and housebreaking.....

Hubby is trying to make his way home from a business's hoping and praying that his flight can land. Other than those few things, life is pretty good here. Hope you all are getting ready for an enjoyable weekend! Do something fun!

Hopefully we won't get swept away by flood waters or drown....blub....blub....blub....

Ahhh...The Sound of Silence!

Darling Daughter is in Day Camp at church all this week. While this requires that we get up much earlier than we usually do in the summertime, it means that I get a quiet house for 7 hours. I am amazed at how much I accomplish when it is just me here.

I am thankful that we have such a wonderful Children's Ministry at church and that darling daughter has someplace safe to spend the week. I know she is learning a lot and spending time with her friends. It helps keep Mom sane to get a little break from the constant "I'm bored, Can I call XXXXX, Can you take us swimming, shopping, to the movies, (fill in the blank)!"

I think everyone will win this week, hubby is going to come home to a delicious dinner (pot roast with potatoes and carrots) and a peaceful wife! Hope your week turns out as well as mine! Blessings Everyone!

The Spurs are Champions once again!

Tony Parker deserved MVP...he is an awesome player!

Shame on those Cavs fans for booing during the awarding of the trophy! They should be more like their players and show some class!

Not Much of An Update But...

I am still having a lot of pain in my back. The doctor ordered more x-rays, bloodwork and gave me a different muscle relaxer (but I can't take it until Friday evening because I can't drive while I am on it, so I need to wait until after VBS is over)

It has settled into my rib cage and it feels like a horse kicks me every 1/2 hour or so, so life is painful right now. I am trying to keep my attitude good and stay busy but it is hard when you are in pain!

Keep praying that they find out why all the sudden I am having so much pain, I did not do anything to cause this (at least not that I know of!) So it is rather puzzling to us all! The Dr. is supposed to have the X-ray and lab results tomorrow so maybe I will know something tomorrow afternoon.

Just two more days of VBS! Yeah!!! It really has been a pretty easy week (I know I should not say that until Friday) and I don't forsee any problems with these last two days.

Hope you all are having a great week! Thanks for the prayers, keep them coming!

Got Any Extra Prayers Lying Around?

...if so I could use a few thrown my way. This is an incredibly busy month for us, lots of activities going on around our house and church. For the last couple of weeks I have been having weird back pain, it moves around and I have not been able to pin it down to anything. A couple of days ago it got a lot worse and it started hurting when I took a deep breath. So I tried to get a dr. appt, but of course it took a couple of more days to get in. Friday....busiest day of the whole week for me I finally got an appt with the PA. They don't know what it is but did order an X-ray and gave me some muscle relaxers. She told me to take the muscle relaxers this weekend and I should be feeling better by Monday. If not, to call them back.

Well, it is late Saturday and I am not doing much better. If these things are going to work by Monday, they better get busy! I am trying to not complain a lot but this is really pretty painful. I am helping in the kitchen for VBS all next week and while I am sure they could do without me (I am not so vain to think I am indespensible) I really hate to let people down when they are counting on me for something.

So if any of you readers would like to throw some prayers for my back this way I would really appreciate it. Hope you all are enjoying a fun (and painfree weekend!) Blessings to you all!

8 Random Things About Me?

1. Met Randy Travis (country singer) in a little bitty airport in my hometown back in the '80's. He is not as tall as he looks on TV

2. Inherited my love of Coca-cola from my grandmother, who swore the stuff tasted better in 6 oz bottles.

3. None of my friends would ever be considered "normal"--just don't seem to attract "normal" friends! (I know--takes one to know one!)

4. Had severe hearing loss for almost 20 years before I learned to sign!

5. Broke my little toe the night before my hubby's 20th reunion and then broke my big toe 2 weeks later. Broke them both in the same bedroom at my In Laws house!

6. Insurance company wanted me to sue "in laws" for medical bills on my broken toe! I refused! (BTW--breaking a big toe is a bigger deal than it sounds like...causes all sorts of problems with balance and long term effects!)

7. Hubby and I suffer from two extremes when it comes to major purchases, we either procrastinate and take months and months to make a major purchase (ie. new flooring for the house, new car) or we go shopping for one thing and impulse buy something else. There does not seem to be any middle ground with us.

8. This one should not be a surprise to anyone.....I am really lousy at these Meme things.....

There you go .....if you read this post and want to do the random Meme ....knock yourself out (and leave me a comment so I can read 8 random things about you!)
