Hello my scrappy peeps!! I thought I'd peek in to make sure no one had rearranged my furniture n stuff while I have been gone!! Things are crazy, crazy, crazy here!!!! I haven't had time to even catch my breath and I am SOOOO far behind it's unreal. Hopefully by the weekend things will settle down and I can catch up just in time to do it all over again.......yup, I must thrive on chaos!!
I have some AWESOME Halloween photos to share but that will have to wait til the weekend too....grrrrr!! I just got my internet connection back up and running and have MY OWN computer back once again!! I tell ya....for the longest time we didn't even own a PC......then when we got one I didn't know how I managed all that time.....now we have 2 and I don't know how we managed with just one......LOL. Yup I am a spoiled brat I reckon!!
Real quick, I'd like for everyone to keep my 10 year old in your thoughts tomorrow as he undergoes his surgery to ahve tubes put in his ears and have this adenoids (or as Jesse calls it, his "annoying thing") taken out. Super simple surgery that shouldn't take too long and shouldn't have any complications BUT with what I have been thru with Bob and "simple" surgeries over the past 2 years I don't take anything for granted. Plus my mother is coming in from Ky to sit with me........so God grant me the strength to hold my tongue and let us not try to kill one another......seriously!!! And while we are at it.......Julie's little girl Brookie is also having laser surgery tomorrow.....so please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as well :) Kids are resilliant tho.....I think the parents are often more of a wreck than they are.
Another quick note.......My Bloggie friend Fern....who many, if not all, of you know, has some candy up for grabs on her blog! She is just the sweetest thing and musta been bitten by the Christmas Spirit Bug....cuz her candy is a good un!!!
