Well I started this day a little later then usual, went to the barn and Rebel the horse will not need to be doctored anymore, his fistula is well:) He looks real good, he was one sick horse. I am thankful:) Then got home and decided to start on Hannah’s house and help her, we got so much done on the inside and got the front porch all pretty with fall mums, she has really cleaned all day:) Brought Blake and Olivia over to my house fed them lunch, gave them a bath, put Blake to bed and Olivia played, made some chili so Mother could have Frito chili pie for supper:) Then Jack came over for a hour or so and played, he was going with me to Mother’s but Bob came and got him, I was late getting over there, waiting on Blake to wake up, Steve was asleep too and I was afraid Blake would make havoc in the house if he got up:) Then I went to mothers and took all the food for the week, she was excited, Hannah’s washer is out and I was going go to go to the laundry mat and help her get it all done, its about 15 loads, is the reason its not done at my house:) she was too tired, I am glad cause I am wore out:) She can go tomorrow with April to help. I am in my chair and Steve is watching football, me on the lap top and he in his chair beside me, just like two old foggies:) He has a colonoscopy on wed at 6 am:((( so tomorrow he preps for it. ugh! I would appreciate your prayers for me tomorrow afternoon, I can not go into it but I really need them:) I listed a lot and did some real estate in the midst of all the other:) but most of all was a wife, mother and nana and daughter today:) It felt good too!! Nite!

Today I got up early and got my nails done then got things ready to take to Alicia’s for Jill’s baby shower. I was so excited, I got this plate for Jill, baby A is such a special little girl, I cannot wait to hold her:) We had a fun family filled shower, Ann Averitt and Louann came form Rogers:) that was so sweet of them. Steve went and got Aunt Marie, mother could not come, when I called and told her Steve would be there at 1:30 to get her, she ask me who Jill was, it broke my heart, I told her and she remembered but she did not want to get out, she has blisters on her hands, where she pulled some weeds and it broke her out. I am slowly losing the mother I have always known, the bad part is she looks the same:( I am not sure if she will know my children at Christmas, she has pics and I take the grand babies to see her, but its hard for her to remember them, she has really lost ground these past few months, so pray for her:) I am free writing about all this and will write a book on my experience with this dreaded disease. I know your impressed, my friend Linda Apple who has written a book and write for chicken soup for the soul, she told me to free write and I am:))) Enjoy the pics of the shower:) nite and hugs

Ok this was my secret:) (The first pic is about a two weeks out, the one in my blue pjs was right after, then the other are the before and after with the dr.) My eye lids drooped over my eye, they bothered me so much, so I decided to have them fixed, you can not believe how much better I can see, I have peripheral vision now too:) When I first did it, I thought oh s------- what have I done, I got out of the car and Max came up to me and said NANA who did that to you!
I had planned on telling every one but I looked awful:) so I decided not to say anything:) Now people will look at me and say how refreshed and good I look:) So no more droopy eye lids for me:) and I love it!! I went to the Hodges clinic in Memphis, he is a great plastic surgeon and is not as expensive as the drs. here. No more surgeries planned for now, once I lose all my weight and wait the time frame they suggest, which is a year, I may have a tummy tuck an get all the lose skin cut off and some other things put where they go:) but that is a way down the road, and I may not…who knows:) It does feel good to feel good about your self in the way you look:) So now you have it, my secret is out:)
Its been a hard day for me because I am not feeling all the way well yet, had a full day, but a good one, except for the buyer on one of my listings, trammel decided not to close:(((((( I will never understand why some one makes a offer, does inspection, appraisal, survey, etc. spend about 1000 dollars and walks away from the close of the deal, they never take into count what they are doing to the seller and do not care:((( Guess its all about them:) well got to run, busy day tomorrow too! hugs and nite!
By the way if I do the other surgery someday, do not worry I will not post pictures:))))) I am still losing weight and have a ways to go, but hope to be there by February 2010!!

Max ( God love him) brought me this dragon fly wing, he loves to bring in bugs, anything wild, he will just study it and tell you all about it!! So I thought I would share this wing with you:)
This has been a day that started very early, went to barn to Dr. horse, which is sorta gross, this lady's thoroughbred has a fistula on his withers, which the horse is 16 hands high so it is ruff to reach:) you have to wash and scrub it out:( I cannot even believe I can do it, but I do and it has not made me gag, it is so much better and the horse is feeling so much better, he is on meds from the vet too, the owner has a broke foot and cannot do it, she is so grateful for our help and its a great feeling seeing him get well!! Then off to lurch with Sherry and Jeff Ballard, then to work and I still have two more appointments to list homes, I will be through about 9:00pm so I thought I better blog now:) Would not want you to miss the dragon fly wing!! I am so busy at work and feel so yucky, my left lung has some pleurisy in it, it has just started but I know what it is, I have had it before and it is so painful, the only way to get rid of it is rest and take some meds, so after I finish tonight if it is not better, I will have to have a heating pad and some major rest, due to the fact I cannot take the pain of it, it is the pleura n your lung, which is hair like fibers that get all jacked up and it hurts to move or breath, so you breath real shallow:) Coughing is almost unbearable, so pray for me to be bale to rest and get well, which means mr. Steve will be showing property for me this weekend, I may go with Sherry to a hotel and really rest, that is about the only way I can rest. Gotta run....hugs and nite!

It has rained and rained and rained! I did see the sun for a few minutes today but then the drenching rain returned. I woke up not feeling the best today, my throat is scratchy and I am hoarse. Thought I might have a fever but I didn’t, took some sinus meds and cold meds and tried to stay in, but duty called:) I had listing appointments and needed to counter a offer, which are good things but just did not feel too good:( I then showed property this afternoon and listed a home in Woodruff creek. Have appointments tomorrow afternoon, listing and should have a closing Thursday on Trammel Road so I am doing the final walk thru tomorrow, got lots to get done and I hope it is not raining and I feel better:) April had some friends come over, Garrett and Max and Molly and watching a movie, Steve is watching it too, I need a house with a den and living room, so we can have to living spaces:) but its sorta late to worry about that now since she is 18 and probably not be here too much longer:( but it would of been nice for tonight, Steve and I were watching a movie and quit for them:) but Steve remained in his chair to watch the movie they had with them:) Good ole dad!!
Well I am ready for bed, hope I can sleep good and awake well:) Nite!

I decided to cook, I started with thinking I will make a chicken pot pie fro lunch and some veggies, then I had extra pie shells, I thought I will make a coconut pie, then thought chocolate pies, since I am the only one who likes coconut:), I then thought well I will do more chicken and make sour cream chicken, and call the kids to come and eat, so cooking I did!! Sent them out a text and they replied what you cooking? Jared was set on Red Lobster but when he heard I made his favorite he was here like a flash:) Tell me I do not know how to get my kids to come over:) Actually I have great kids and they are always calling or coming over, I am so thankful for a close family. They are the love of my life, and the grand babies are so funny, I am so Blest! they are healthy, I pray they will all be close too! This am I have a closing at 8:30 a.m., which I am glad, I woke up with a headache and this whole deal has had some major headaches so I hope it all goes well:) Each morning I sit in my chair, that I bought my self at Lazy boy, it is a brown leather recliner and I get my lap top and stare out the window and watch the neighbors leave for work or where ever they go, this am I have GMA on, looks like we will have a LOT of rain today, guess we need it, any way thought I would post a pic of my morning view for you to share with me and some pics of lunch yesterday:) Keep Jill in your prayers she is still so sick with Vertigo, her mother is here for a couple of days, if she is not better by middle of the week she is to go to the Dr., she cannot take anything with being PG, so pray:) well got to start my day:) Have a great day!

This morning has been so peaceful, it is raining and I have my worship music on and having my bible reading time and prayer time, I have several burdens on my heart to pray for, my dear friend Alice needs a touch form the Lord today, she lost her son in a auto wreck last week, my mother and Walt and how to best help them, they need to see a Elder attorney to get their affairs in order but it will take God telling and making Walt go do this, so please pray. It will be awful if they pass and we have no ideal what they have or where it is at, I remember when Jim Averitt passed away, it felt like we were violating him going thru all his belongings, I just want mother and Walt to have made pre arrangements in the event of their death. I have some personal burdens that I am not free to share on line but the Lord knows them:) Praying for Jill who has vertigo, that it goes away quickly. Just a lot on my heart:) so this time has been refreshing to me this am:) (Thank you Lord for taking my burdens and making them yours!) Now I am trying to decide if I should cook something for today or go to church, my church meets on Sunday nights but out of tradition I am use to going on Sunday morning, so its hard not to go:) I have visited Mercy cross with my sister and loved it, hummmmm what to do??????? I will for sure go to Journey tonight, Cary’s msg. on spiritual warfare have been refreshing and keeping me focused:) I have a open house today and so does Steve, having dinner done would be a big help, but I miss the worship and service on Sunday am, it just helps me keep my mind straight and my flesh!! :)) I may need Sunday am and Sunday night both:) to get that job done. Hummmmm….well just see how it plays out, as of now, I am in my PJ’s blogging:) Saturday was a good day, I worked some and then watched TV and played on the computer:) Made some Cream of Broccoli soup and took to Sherry Maxwell, she has a cold and feels yucky, so pray for her too:) well need to get off here and decide what to do and when:) hugs, hope you make this a great day for you!
