TIS ME AND I AM BACK BLOGGING AGAIN......


I have been so busy lately that I just have not had the time to sit down and really blog like I would like too. Yes, I have found some cute things that "others have written"...NO I am DEFINITELY not that talented to all of those who "thought" that I wrote that last one about the alphabet!! Man, I just wish that I was that talented. I would be writing books if I was!! Lazy Daisy needs to do that and I keep telling her that!! She just never listens to me!!

I have been keeping very busy and that includes trying desperately to read everyone blogs. I have a long list of the sweetest people that I read faithfully every day and try most days to leave comments. You are some of the nicest people that I have ever met. Thanks so much Lazy Daisy for getting me "hooked" on this blogging stuff!!!

Yesterday I went to the neurologist about my chronic pain and was there for over 2 hours. She believes that I have a pinched nerve in my back that comes and goes. That is why I have some periods of relief which thankfully I am in right now. I have had periods of up to 6 months of just wonderful relief. Then it hits with all of its terror and slam dunk pain!! It is horrible!! It makes me cry and I just want to leave this world NOW!! She says that I am doing the right thing by going to CURVES, & losing weight (which I am still doing). She has given me a prescription for some new medication when this next wave hits....believe me it will hit!! I have had this chronic pain now for 10 years. What fun!!

I have also been helping to take care of those sweet little babies of one of our pastors at our church. I go once a week and watch the 3 little remaining babies of the quads that were born last November. They are Benjamin, Casey and Danielle. They are progressing really well!! They are such a JOY and Benjamin has stolen my heart!!

Benjamin is the first one on the left...They are all such great smilers....and so fortunate to be alive!!




We just finished my scrapbooking/computer room. We painted it a geranium green and it is looking good. I have shelves now for my scrapbooking and a place just for my blogging, bible studying and to keep my other activities all in order. I am a HAPPY CAMPER....

That about catches you up!! It has been HOT here. Our cat MISS LUCY (meow) is outside now but her potty habit is still bad and we have to deal with that all of the time. I am constantly cleaning up after her. She should count herself very fortunate to be living in a home that LOVES her.

Now you are caught up...keep stopping by...I love hearing from you and all about your crazy lives just like mine........................

The room looks great!! Love the color! I have a craft room too, it's fairy yellow! Right now my son has taken it over as his office though, I'm not real thrilled about sharing it.

Sounds like the neuro is a good one! That's so important!!! Believe me I know! Hope that pain stays away!

3 of the remaining quads? That means one of them didn't make it? How sad. They are adorable! It's great that you go over and help out! My one little Bean is hard enough!

I LOVE the color in your pray/playroom! So cheerful! You really are keeping yourself busy - and I can understand with those 3 babies! Dolls - every one of them! I just love babies...

Sandy, have you ever thought about seeing a chiropractor? I have used chiropractic therapy for about 20 years now. I had pinched a nerve in my neck/upper back area when I was doing sheetmetal work, and it hurt so bad I felt like my neck was on fire sometimes! It took the chiropractor quite a while to "fix" it -- because I had let it go quite awhile before seeing him -- but I started getting relief from him almost right away. I swear by it!

My sister-in-law though, who refuses to try chiropractic, has had similar success using accupuncture!

Just food for thought! Hope you feel better soon!

The babies are adorable...how good of you to help out with them. Your computer table looks so neat. Mine used to be under control. I leave to many urls and notes laying all over it. You've inspired me! Perhaps yet today.....
