Linda- Keeping you in my thoughts for a speedy and effective recovery!

I'm still waiting to hear back from my interview, but DH's business meeting went EXCELLENTLY! We are supposed to take the weekend to think about things and then will get together next week to take the next steps in the process. DH will go into the clinic and do some observations then do a few adjustments on the drs in the office to let them see how he works and his techniques. If that all goes well, we're in! Sooo, ok, its not guaranteed yet, but it definitely feels very positive and a lot of this is more technicalities to be sure they can work well together.

Good morning, Ladies!! I'm saying good morning from the shores of Lake Michigan!! My BFF and I are in Michigan. Normally we come to pick blueberries, but we decided to add a "sand and fun" weekend this year in June. But with the warm weather, the blueberries are ripening early! The aren't open for u-pick, but a couple places had the early ones picked. Can't wait to taste them!!

We spent yesterday on the South Haven beach and ate a yummy batch of loaded nachos near the pier last night. Perfect!! Today we'll be on the St. Joseph beach. I wasn't able to get a daylily like I have in the past at the S. Haven Farmer's Mkt., so mayble I can fin one to bing home today.

Linda, I know what you mean about the arthritis in your knee. Mr. Dr. told me my knee pain was too much for just a torn miniscus. Then when he saw the standing knee Xray, he asked how my other knee was!! I need to get some weight off as I know that would help me immensely. Gotta get the "kick" back to walking 7 days a week. That peeled it off.

Have a great day--I know I will!! We're staying through tomorrow. What a great start to the week!

Good Morning Illinois Stamping Friends!

I’m back!
... ... ... ...

It’s good to be home again, though jet-lag is still a huge issue (says the woman who only slept 1 hours last night. LOL! Whoever says it is good to be home to sleep in her own bed again REALLY should give me some pointers on that.

My time in Thailand was INCREDIBLE and I do miss the children we worked with tremendously! They were so sweet!!!

I am so far behind that I will not attempt to catch up in the threads. Therefore, please let me know if I missed anything important. THANKS!

Jen, that sure does sound positive re: your DH's job! I sure hope that works out for him. Have you heard back from your interview yet?

Pat, I'm soooo jealous! I love Michigan. The beach at S. Haven is so pretty! Good for you for spending an extra day! Have you ever been further north in MI? Enjoy!

Jeanette, welcome home! You'll have to give us more details on your trip when you have actually gotten some sleep - lol! I'm glad you trip went so well!!!!!

Linda, how are you doing?

Tina, what's new in your world?

I'm off to help with the twins in a bit. Our SIL has to pull a double shift from 1:00 a.m. this morning until 11:00 p.m. tonight! Grammy may be pulling some extra time, too! I know the new mama and papa will be exhausted after this whirlwind. Grandpa got to feed the twins for the 1st time Sat. night. Of course, he loved every second of it. It was so much fun to watch - brought back so many memories of he and both our DD's when they were babies!

I hope everyone has a good Monday and enjoys this beautiful weather before it gots hot again! Hugs and prayers to all!

Good Morning Illinois Stamping Friends!

Yes, jet lag still reigns in my sleep - or sleepless - night! I slept 3 hours this night (twice as much as the night before). *yawn

Thank you for the welcome home, Loretia!

Good morning, Jeanette and all!

Good grief, you must be running on empty, Jeanette! I hope the sandman sprinkles some "magic sleep dust" on your pillow tonight and you get about 3x as much sleep as you have been!

Things are very strange at our home this morning. DH had a very early job, so he left the house at 3:30 a.m. I got up at 5:00. It seemed so weird not having him here to enjoy our morning coffee together! Believe me, that's one blessing I don't take for granted and this morning reminded me of just how blessed I am!

Enjoy the day, ladies!

Loretia, it's good to see you this morning. I, too, hope I can get some more sleep tonight... maybe even a nap this afternoon.

I'm sorry you and your DH missed your coffee time this morning. Is this early work just today or will he have to be gone early again?

Morning, Jeanette! It's good to "see" you, too!

I don't know if I have mentioned this before but DH and I own a plumbing, heating and air conditioning company. We do residential and light commercial work. He seldom is gone this early. Occassionally, when one of the restaurants here in town need plumbing work done to the extent that the water has to be shut off, they obviously want it done before the restaurant opens. In this case, that meant he and a co-worker needed to be on the job site by 4:00 a.m. We gratefully have some very loyal customers and he works hard to accommodate them! I just hope the man takes off early today - doubtful, but a nice thought. I'm predicting he'll be snoring on the couch by about 6:00 p.m. - lol!!!!!

I would definitely plan a nap in your schedule - sounds wonderful!

I think it's great that your business accomodates the needs of its customers, Loretia! You are gracious business owners. Unfortunately, not every company is that good! THANK YOU for enduring inconvenience to help your customers out!

Hello from Decatur,
I spared you from my "Pity Party" after seeing the Ortho Dr yesterday!
I was worried about how they would keep me half-way comfortable post-surgery since I take a high dose of Percacet for my back. So, he came in, and looked me over, and told me that my kneecap is pretty much worn off, and my arthritis is everywhere. HOWEVER,...he just didn't think he could give me good results because of the pain meds I already take. He said that my knee would stiffen up, and stay that way.
So, Tomorrow morning I go to Springfield to a doctor that only does knees and hips. Please pray that he has an answer for me. I don't want to have this pain all my life, and I don't want to be in a wheelchair.

It sounds like everyone needs some sleep in Illinois, including me! I'm going to go lay down right now. Everyone have a great day!!!

Linda, I'm so sorry you didn't get some hopeful answers yesterday. That must have been a terrible disappointment. My heart hurts for you and the suffering you endure. Will pray that the Springfield doctor will have some ideas on how to give you some relief!

Good morning Ladies!!! I have been MIA for awhile! I can't believe how busy summer can become - but my "chore" list is slowly getting smaller! We finally finished all the landscaping around the house, finished the roof and now we are working on the small shed (going to paint it and landscape around it)
Lacie is doing pretty good in Argentina - she will be home 3 weeks earlier than expected as her classes began early. It's a good thing too because she is so homesick! This week has been better, but last week all she did was cry everyday when she called. She said that when she is busy she is fine, but if she has too much down time she gets really homesick. I know that she is having a wonderful experience even with missing home.
I have been so busy in the yard that I haven't even looked at my craft area in forever!!! That and i started reading the 50 Shades of Gray series. ( no sure about them yet, but they are page turners!)
Jen - I am keeping you in my prayers!
Jeanette - I am glad you had a safe trip!
Linda - you are in my prayers! I haven't had a knee replaced but they tried to replace my radial head (elbow) but the replacement would not fit correctly so I now have no bone in my left arm. It is amazing what they can do! I have over 95% use of that arm (good thing since I am left handed). Hang in there.
Loretia - thank you for your prayers for Lacie! She really needs them!
Well, I better get back to work! Have a wonderful day everyone!

Good Thursday morning everyone!!!
Yesterday was my appointment with Dr Gordon Allen in Springfield. From what I hear about him is that he doesn't have much of a "bedside manner", but he is the doctor that other Orthopedic Doctors send patients to if they have a case that is just too big or complicated to handle. I prayed that he would take me on and give me a chance to get rid of this terrible pain. However, I was scared that since I got in to see him in 2 days, might not be a good sign.
He has quite a set up in his office. Very organized, with a Nurse Practitioner and quite a few nurses. They couldn't believe that my Decatur doc only took 1 ex-ray, so the 1st thing they did was take several more. Then the Nurse Practitioner showed me them and pointed out ALL the arthritis. The Dr came in, and I found him pleasent. He showed me my ex-rays, and also showed me that I have quite a bit of arthritis in my other knee. Anyway, I told him that I brought my MRI. He said he didn't need it, he sees in the regular ex-rays that I am full of arthritis behind my knee-pad, and I need a total knee replacement. So, then a couple other nurses came in, explaining surgery, my hospital stay, I will have a Nurse and PT come to my home for a while after I come home in 3 days. Then they gave me a notebook with all the info in it. St Johns Hospital will have a class before surgery. And on and on!!! I am relieved!!! I am also scared. I won't be able to drive for 6 weeks, YIKES ! ! ! So, that will take up most of the summer! When I'm done with this one, I will probably need to have my other knee done!!! lol

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!!! They worked!!!

Linda, I am so glad he gave you hope! Even though the recovery (and lack of driving) is long... it will be worth it to get rid of the pain. Continued prayers for you!!!

Good afternoon, ladies!

Boy, you miss a couple of days on here and you miss alot - lol!

Jeanette, I love your pictures - especially the picture frame! Talk about recycling - lol! It looks like you have some really awesome adventures on your trip. I think I'd have to eat breakfast everyday, too with a breakfast like that! It looks delicious! How was the ride on the elephants back? Was it smooth? I have never done that and am just curious.
Thank you for your compliment. It really meant alot to me. When DH and I started in business we decided that we would always treat our customers the way that we would want to be treated. We also agreed that we would never ask any of our employees to do anything we didn't do ourselves. We're a small business - 3 plumbers, 3 heating/air conditioning technicians, 1 part-time secretary and DD #1 is our office manager. I'm the "fill-in, jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none girl"!

Linda, I'm glad that you liked the Dr. in Springfield and more importantly that he has given you a medical plan for the surgery and recovery period. St. John's is a phenomenal hospital from everything I've ever heard. Having a nurse and PT come to your home is wonderful! That will sure save you alot of driving. Of course, you're scared. My gosh, who wouldn't be! I hope you ask lots of questions during your class so that you can be as fully informed as you want to be. I also think that knowledge is power! Do you have your surgery scheduled yet? I'm praying for you!

Oh, Tina, I'm so sorry to hear that Lacie is so homesick. That has to be pretty heartbreaking for you to hear her cry on the phone! I'm sure you're glad that she's coming home earlier than planned. I'm continuing to pray for her and your family! Congrats on knocking off that chore list - go, girl!

I put a moratorium on making cards until I finished 2 baby afghans for our DD's sister-in-laws. 1 is due in September and 1 in October. One afghan down and one go to!!!!!! I swear I'm going through "paper withdrawal".

The twins are marvelous! They're so alert and just watch your face as you talk to them. They are now using their swings, bouncie seats and these floor playmats. They love to watch the lights on things and the various toys/animals that hang from all their "stuff"! I just can't get over how quickly they're growing! Grampy and I are "babysitting" for the 1st time tomorrow night. The kids are going to a cook-out, 4 doors away from their home - lol. I'm glad they're taking a short break. We'll see how many times Mommy and Daddy check in on them!!!!

Stay cool everybody, which I guess means stay indoors in air conditioning!

Hugs and prayers for all!

Thank you, Loretia. It was quite an experience on that elephant. LOL!

I really admire the way you and your DH run your business. I'm sure your customers and employees appreciate you!

Good morning ladies!! Back to work on Tuesday, and tuckered out by Sunday!!

Yes, Loretia, I do love both South Haven and St. Joseph. My BFF and I have always wanted to go further up--more toward the UP, but it's so nice to sneak in on the SW MI beaches and not look at cornfields!! We'll be back up the 1st part of August to pick blueberries. My BFF found quite a number of plants...and then we found a greenhouse with 1/2 off on some really nice annuals. I wound up putting down the back seat so we could make more room!! LOL

Linda--prayers to you as you begin the pre-surgery route. My MIL had that surgery about 10 years ago. It helped her walking immensely.

Yesterday was little Miss Reagan's 1st birthday party!! I took a whole bunch of pictures but failed to take a photo of the banner I made for her. Will see if my DS or DDIL will do that for me.

Now it's hot here, and no rain. My head feels like it is about to explode from the air pressure changes. I'll take a little discomfort for some rain, though!

Have a great day, ladies! Stay cool--I may stamp instead of being in my garden.

Hello ladies!

Pat, I sure do hope you are feeling better today. Did you get any rain to make that headache worthwhile? Happy 1st birthday to Miss Reagan! What fun you must have had!

Tina, how is Lacie doing?

Jeanette, are you going to try to scrapbook your trip? Are you anywhere close to "normal" sleep patterns yet? I sure hope so!

Linda, how are you doing?

Jen, any news yet on DH or your job prospects?

What are everyone's 4th of July plans? I love this holiday - not as much as Thanksgiving, Easter or Christmas, but it's so much fun and I feel so humbled when I think of all the men and women who died so that we may continue to this day living in a free country! I also get very excited about the fireworks - tee hee! Just a kid at heart, I guess!

Stay cool, everyone!

Loretia, I do plan to scrapbook my trip, as I've done the other 6 international mission trips I've been on.

My sleep is getting a bit better, not yet completely normal, though.

I'm hanging in here!!! Thanks for asking! I am trying to do some heavy duty cleaning (crazy me)!! It's amazing how much can be done sitting down! I'm going to try to get things arranged in the bedroom that is going to be my craft room, so that my Son-in-law can help Bob get the bed out of the room. I'm just going to give it away on FreeCycle. If the bed is gone, it will be something for me to work toward in Physical Therapy. I got a major closet cleaned out today, and shoes arranged. I have 2 more closets to clean out, and throw away stuff, or donate!!! It really feels good !!! Whooo Hoooo!!!!!!

Linda, REST is not a 4-letter word........ well, it is, but not in a bad way. Please take care of yourself and don't over-do!

Hello everyone! Happy Independence Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, Linda, you're on a roll, girl! I'm with Jeanette, don't overdo; but if it makes you feel good to get some things accomplished go for it! Makes me tired just to read what all you've been doing!

Jeanette, it sounds like you've experienced quite a number of awesome trips. I'm one of those people who are very happy staying in the U.S. However, I am always fascinated when I hear of someone like yourself going on numerous international missions. God bless you!

The twins are 2 months old today! Hard to believe!

Everybody at least "try" to stay cool! Thank God for Willis Carrier, he invented air conditioning! There's my fun, useless fact for the day - lol!

Enjoy those fireworks!

Hard to believe that the twins are already 2 months old!!!

I hope everyone had a good 4th!!! We stayed home. Tried cooking out, but the chicken got half cooked, and ran out of gas, so had to finish them in the broiler. They were good anyway!!!

I had my pre-op stuff at the Dr Wed afternoon. I had to give a urine sample. The bathroom was just across the hall, so I didn't take my cane. On the way into the examining room, my knee just gave out, and I fell. Luckily, there was a chair to grab. So, yesterday, I just did nothing. I took a nap, and sat around.
The Dr's office just called. I have to go give another urine specimen. They found mine in the little silver box this morning.. Just what I wanted to do!!!

Everyone have a great Thursday!!!

Oh my gosh, Linda! You've got to be feeling like if it wasn't for bad luck, you wouldn't have any at all! I'm praying for you, dear. It sounds like you didn't get hurt badly when you feel. I'm glad about that! Good for you for taking a day off! Hang in there, lady! You are an inspiration to keep chugging away through all your pain, working towards relief from it!

Good morning, ladies!

Yes, Jeanette, I missed you - even though I didn't hit SCS myself yesterday - lol! Good to "see" you today.

How do you spell "hot"? The state of IL! I think our flowers are melting. I know I am!
Are any of you having trouble in your flowers/bushes/trees with those pesky Japanese beetles. They've invaded here! I found a recipe online for a "natural" treatment. DH and I are hitting the $ store to get the ingredients. We'll see how it works.

New stats on the twins! They each got a wonderful report at their check-up yesterday. Thank you, God! Lucy is now 20 3/4" and weighs 9 lbs. 4 oz. Cameron is now 21 3/4" and 8 lbs. 14 oz. They've started with real, true smiles! Talk about melt your heart.

I hope everyone has a good Saturday and gets in a little R & R or maybe alot!

Hugs and prayers to all!

Hello everyone!!! It has been a few bad days. I think it's just a case of nerves, but my stomach is upset, and I spent all day in bed yesterday. Today started that way. I am missing out on my cleaning and organizing!!! I just got rid of a lot of odd and end glasses and cups. When my husband leaves, I thin I can add to the box! Next, I think I'll work in the dining room. I guess I'm not going to move any of my card supplies until after recovery
But hopefully it will all be condensed and all neatly put away.

I think I've been talked into staying in the Transitional Care another day before coming home. Bob is far from being any help at home, and I am a bit scared that I may be overwhelmed with just 2 days. I can always change my mind.
Well, hope everyone is enjoying at least part of their day!!!
