Holidays and the End of the Year

So it just goes to show that I kind of suck at this whole blogging thing.  Of course it might actually help if I had interwebz access at my home (where I am 90% of the time), but I don't.  I have to go into town to get online and mostly I just try to get the bare basics done and then go back home.  So I sincerely appologize to any and all who keep coming here and wonder, "WTH is wrong with this woman and why won't she post anything new?!"  Well, now you know.  And if you don't wonder, well, you still know.  I have no idea if I can manage to recover my internet connection anytime soon.  It isn't looking hopeful, but I plan on making some changes after the first of the year.  Even if it means closing my page.  Idk yet.  Will just have to wait and see.  In the meantime, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season.

Happy Holidays,
See you next year.

Summer Has Come to Town!

So we are a little ways into June and summer has decided to show up with a vengeance.  We have had some pretty warm days but it was still pleasant.  But not yesterday.  Yesterday was just terrible here in mid-Missouri.  And today is looking just like it.  Don't get me wrong, I would rather be hot than cold any day, but there are a few aspects of the heat that I really dislike.  Ok, maybe even hate. 

I don't mind sweating, but I do hate being sticky.  Yuck!!  It makes me feel dirtier than if I had of rolled in the mud.  And I can live with the fact that the temperature, not the sun, has the ability to make my skin feel as if it were being deep fried.  But it really sucks when my face feels like it will melt off because, despite the fact that it is sweating profusely, (which is supposed to help cool me off) it just will not cool down.  And not only can I feel that it won't release the heat, everyone else can see it too because my face is the same color as my hair.  (It's red, don't you know.)  Ugh!

On a happier note, I am recovering much better from my latest surgery than I did from the last one.  And I have decided that I am going to loose weight and eat better one way or another.  I am done with punishing myself with foods that are bad for me.  I am going to live instead of trying to speed up the dying process, because let's face it, we are all slowly dying from the moment we are born.  We might as well live to the fullest, but that doesn't mean trying to die faster than necessary or getting older and being in more pain than needed.  So here is to my change of paradigm!!  Not the first in my life and hopefully not the last!

Blessed be!!

Surgery and Recovery

It has been two weeks now since my surgery.  It is the same as the one I had in October, only on the left side of my neck.  The surgery went well and I have been doing way better this time than last time.  More movement sooner and slightly more energy.  But I do still have an issue.  My tongue. 

The doctor assures me that it will return to normal functioning.  He said that the tumor was completely surrounding the nerve that affects my tongue, therefore he had to work with it quite a bit.  Hence why half of my tongue isn't working.  My husband says it will be fine too.  But although I am doing my best to think happy thoughts about it, I am still a little bit concerned.  Please help me out!!  I could use all the happy, shiny thoughts, prayers, and candle lighting I can get, to get my tongue to working properly again so that I can eat without fighting my food.  Thanks so much for your help! 

Blessed be!

Birthday and House Warming Party

So we finally got around to having our house warming party.  We decided to have it coincide with my birthday.  It went pretty well considering less than a dozen people showed up of the nearly 40 who were invited.  It was a beautiful day.  The sun was shining.  The temperature was in the upper 60's.  There was children's laughter echoing in the valley!  Can't really complain.  We were very happy to have guests over yet very sad that we didn't get to see the rest of our friends that we haven't seen in a few years.  But maybe we can figure out another time that they can come up.

My next surgery will be happening on the 24th of this month.  I have already made several hats.  Now I need to get the horns done for them before I will be unable to do any crocheting for a couple of months.  And I have to get graduation announcements sent out as well.  I will be very busy this week!  But that is OK.  That's all for now.  See you around!  Go enjoy Spring!!!!

Blessed Be.

Spring Is Finally Here

YAY!!!!!  I am so excited that spring has finally got here.  Even though the snow was pretty to watch it fall for several days straight and see it on everything, I am thankful to see everything coming back to life and the warmer temps are welcome.  Spring is my favorite time of year.  And it is just in time for my birthday which is this next week. 
Blessed be!!

We are still trying to settle into our new house.  We are very much enjoying our house so far.  I LOVE the fact that I am getting to see so much wildlife in the back yard.  We have seen an owl (don't know what kind though), two coyotes, a fox, a herd of deer (10 total), and three neighborhood cats (I know they aren't wild but it still makes me happy). 

But I am soooooooo hating the fact that we still can't afford to get internet.  *sigh*  It is so depressing.  I want it back!!!  I started this blog with the hopes and plans of actually being able to post fairly often.  It disappoints me deeply that I can't yet.  If anyone is checking out my page on a regular basis, then I apologize profusely that I am rather boring.  BLAST!!!  I want to do better.  I hate not having enough money.

Well, that is enough complaining!  I am actually pretty happy with my life right now.  Things are going pretty well.  I hope all is well for everyone else as well. 

Blessed be,
The most boring blog writer to date.  :-P

New Year and a New Start

Ah.......The new year has started and of course I am behind.  So many things have been happening lately that I can scarcely keep track.  I am feeling so much better from my surgery!  The scar doesn't even look half bad.  :-)  But in a few months I will need to go through it all again for the other side.  But I am fine with that.

The best news to impart, and what has taken up so much of my time lately, is that we have finally bought a house!!!  We managed to FINALLY close on it the 9th of this month.  We were beginning to think it was never going to happen.  And frankly, looking back at the incompetence of several of the agencies involved, it is a miracle we got the house at all!!  That being said, I refuse to ever work with them again.  The only ones who did their job properly were our realtor and bank.  The rest were just fools who don't deserve to continue to be in business!!  But we are now home owners and although I am excited about it, it also scares me.  But I have faith that all will be well.

Now we just need to get settled in and then have a house warming party!  I hope we can figure out something soon.  I so want our friends and family to see our new place.  Plus, now we can see about getting internet again so that I don't have to wait so long to post anything.  Then I feel I need to find some way of immersing myself into creativity.  I am feeling rather low when it comes to being creative and that just won't do if I want to heal my soul, live life fully and start my own business.  We shall see what I can get myself into.  :-D

That is all for now folks.  Hope to be back soon.

Blessed be
