Oh I'm sorry I keep missing your calls. I have been laying down to rest alot, and Greg makes sure the phone is turned off so it doesn't bother me. That's why it's best to try me in the evening.

What kinda toys are you referring to, and here I thought this was a totally G rated space?????
I am anything but a sweetpea if that was referring to me... lol. My idea of toys, even adult ones, is much different than yours I bet, no one ever thinks of the same ones I am thinking of... hummmmm wonder what that means? I want to find your list, I need a good laugh.

You're too funny Janet. The thread I was talking about is Marji's men's card swap. It pretty funny. These gals have quite the sense of humor over there. And the sweetpea I was referring to was Miss sweetpea111403~ also know as Jessica! She's quite the trouble maker! (just kidding Jessica)

sorry to have been away for so long. the cancer is spreading and I just have no energy whatsoever any more. I think of all of you often and keep your precious cards beside my bed. the seizures are back in full force also, so I just pretty much stay in bed and sleep all the time.

swaps that I need to mail out should hopefully be postal soon. craftybug - your box went out yesterday. just can't stamp anymore. haven't even been in my stamp room in ages. think my boys and the dogs spend more time there than I have in a long time.

love to all of you! (still got the blue toes! it's getting harder to do them, but they do stay blue.)

Jen, good to hear from you my sassy friend! I still have you in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to do so. I am sorry you do not have the energy to stamp because I know it has a tendency to calm me down and make me feel better. Just take care of yourself my friend. Miss you!

My dear Jen, I'm so sorry that the cancer is spreading I think of you often and pray for you daily. One of my dear stampin friends is going through stage 4 ovarian cancer with her mom it doesn't look good as she is not responding to treatment but she remains hopeful here is something I read on her "update" site that is encouraging for all of us but especially you! Sending hugs through cyber space to you! Brittney

Cancer, compared to what is most important in life -------- faith, love and friendship, is so limited.
It cannot cripple love
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot destroy confidence
It cannot eat away at peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot shut out memories
It cannot invade the sole
It cannot silence courage
It cannot reduce eternal life
It cannot lessen the power of the resurrection
It cannot quench the spirit.

-- WOW -- To God Be The Glory!

Iris Patch, that was lovely, thank you for sharing it.

My dad is in stage four with a rare form of cancer, but he's been in stage four for two years now and just keeps on going. Right now he's in Norway with my mom for a fjord trip.

I'm doing good! Greg and I made some home made apple pies and some of my famous baked potato soup. Yum yum!

I just got up from a 2 hour nap, and I will work on my swaps for my gingerbread swap. I got some new gingerbread man stamps that I can't wait to use. They are soooo cute!

YUM!! Baked potato soup sounds really delicious Marlene! About time for the soup to be made since the weather is cooling off now. Making meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn for dinner tonight. It is chilly in NE Ohio today.

The meatloaf for supper was pretty good! They like when I make them into individual size ones instead of one big loaf. Have leftovers so can make meatloaf sandwiches....yum! Have a great evening all!

Oh goodness...I'm catching up ..it's dinner time and I'm reading about all the yummies you're making!! I just sent my dh to the taqueria for some authentic mexican food. Take Out! Carne asada quesadilla and guacamole for me tonight!

I just got some bargains for my ds, as far as clothes, on ebay ...without having to go through racks like at goodwill!! I can't stand going through racks. My source for hand me downs has slowed down and I realized ....oh my gosh, he needs clothes! I refuse to pay the high prices for stuff ...so it's walmart or now ebay.

Hi Jessica. I have been avoiding your question, mostly because I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment. I almost hate to talk about my health issues, as I feel you guys have got to be tired of hearing about it.........
But, I cannot begin to tell you what a relief it is for me to be able to talk about it sometimes. I don't like to "burden" my boys, so I don't talk about it to them much. And Greg is doing all he can to keep it together if you know what I mean. And my friends just don't know what do do with me anymore, so I don't really talk to them about it either. So here I am ready to bust! And again I am asking for your prayers.
The day after I came home from the hospital, I found a strange lump on my lower left of my back and went to the doctor the next day. They did an ultrasound, and now I am going for a biopsy. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said some of the bloodwork came back questionable. Something about my bone marrow is producing too much of one type of cell, and he's concerned about the lump as the radiologist said he can not rule out lymphoma, and I freaked after that. I cannot tell you what else he said, because I heard "the bone marrow" and the the word "lymphoma" and my brain stopped working at that point. Needless to say, I am feeling VERY overwhelmed at the moment, so please forgive me for not being very social. Thursday and friday I will be having pain management procedures for my spine again and tuesday (on Chris and Joey's birthday) I go in for the biopsy. Please, please, please, say a prayer for me if you can. I am scared to death!

And now, here's my soup recipe I pormised you all:

Marlene's Baked Potato Soup
4 large baking potatoes
2/3 cup butter
2/3 flour
3/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 can chicken broth
4 cups milk
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
10 bacon strips cooked and crumbled
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Bake potatoes at 350 degrees for one hour or until tender. When cooled, peel and cube potatoes. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper until smooth. Gradually add broth and milk. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened. Remove from heat and whisk in sour cream. Add potatoes, and onions. Garnish with bacon and cheese. Makes about 10 small servings.
I always double the recipe as my family loves this soup! But don't boil the potatoes as a shortcut. Bake them. It makes a HUGE difference in the flavor.

But, I cannot begin to tell you what a relief it is for me to be able to talk about it sometimes. I don't like to "burden" my boys, so I don't talk about it to them much. And Greg is doing all he can to keep it together if you know what I mean. And my friends just don't know what do do with me anymore, so I don't really talk to them about it either. So here I am ready to bust! And again I am asking for your prayers.
The day after I came home from the hospital, I found a strange lump on my lower left of my back and went to the doctor the next day. They did an ultrasound, and now I am going for a biopsy. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said some of the bloodwork came back questionable. Something about my bone marrow is producing too much of one type of cell, and he's concerned about the lump as the radiologist said he can not rule out lymphoma, and I freaked after that. I cannot tell you what else he said, because I heard "the bone marrow" and the the word "lymphoma" and my brain stopped working at that point. Needless to say, I am feeling VERY overwhelmed at the moment, so please forgive me for not being very social.

Marlene, if you ever feel like you are going to bust and that you are burdening anyone.. you have my email address... you can contact me at anytime.
I am sending you {{{HUGS}}} and I will continue to keep you in my prayers. I can't even begin to imagine how scared you are and all that you are going through, but just stay positive and have faith that everything will be ok.
I wish there was somethign I could say to take it all away, but all I can do is pray for you and try and make you laugh!
If you need anything, please let me know.
Take care of yourself my friend.

BTW.. soup sounds yummy.. I cant wait for a cool winter night so I can make it for Jeff and I while we cozy up and watch a movie.
