Prayers, Happy Thoughts & Best wishes

I talked to my Mom tonight on the phone, she sounds like she is doing better. She had a doctor appt. today and the doctor told her that if she keeps smoking that she will loose her Stoma, and have to have a colostomy bag. She goes to her Oncologist on Friday and they will put her on a chemo pill called "Gleevec" which she will have to take the rest of her life. Her immune system is down and it won't be able to handle the gleevec and smoking, so I'm asking for prayers, thoughts and best wishes, what ever it is that you do to handle life situations, to do that for her, in hopes that she can kick the habit and get through this so we can have her around and she can have the best health as possible for many years to come.
Thank you

Not A Good Monday

I started off the day feeling good and well rested. About 8:30 this morning I got a dizzy spell, and it was a doozy! I thought maybe I just needed breakfast, so made my daily shake, had that and headed for the shower, only to get in there and quickly realize that if I didn't get out right that instant I was gonna fall out. I headed for the bed to dry off and get dressed and then got a deep inner chill , with sweaty feet. I could get warm for anything while feeling dizzy as could be. After trying to get my composer, with no luck, hubby took me to the emergency room to find out what was happening to me. He all but carried me to the car, covered me up and headed out. Once at the hospital he got a wheelchair for me to ride in since I could not walk. I got quickly checked in and they did some easy tests, and found out that I have an inner ear infection, and had a bad case of vertigo. They gave me some motion sickness pills to help the vertigo, not come back. They make me feel so drowsy so I have been sleeping the rest of the afternoon. We left for the hospital about 9 and didn't get back until almost 1pm.
I missed my math class, and now have to fight like crazy to get caught up and ready for the test on Monday. Please keep me in your prayers, that I can function well enough to go get help with my math tomorrow and understand it, enough to pass my test.

Side Note..........
I talked to my Mom tonight and she is doing a little better, she sounds great. I'm so glad she is home, we always heal and feel better at home. She has a doc appt. on Wednesday and I can update you more then, again thank you for all your prayers.


Not Me Monday

It was not me who totally refused to do any homework Friday, and just sat covered up in the recliner, doing as we call it here muling up, with the naaaa's.

It was not me who called my Mom every 2-4 hours while she was in the hospital, checking to see if she was alright and how she was feeling. Which by the way she went home yesterday finally.

It was far from me who went to bed last night at 6:45 pm due to the fact I was burnt out from the week.

It is not me who will have to spend most of my week at school working hard to understand my math, so I can be ready for my test a week from today.

I don't know what to name

Today is not a good day for me. My head feels burnt out, and I can't make myself do my homework. I did do some math today until I got stuck and couldn't go any further, but now I just sit and look at my books acting like a stubborn mule that won't move.
I'm worried about my Mom as she is feeling really rugged, and didn't get to go home today, and is not sure when she will get to go home. I hate the fact that we are so far apart and I can't even go hold her hand and sooth her, and pray over her in person.
Really all I wanna do is sit and cry, the tears haven't come yet but I feel them right there forming a well in each eye.
Sooner than later I have to get busy and get that English assignment done, as it is due by tomorrow. I pray that stubborn mule moves soon!

Friday Funnies

This is really how I feel sometimes.

Surgery Update

First of all I would like to thank everyone for their prayers, they so worked!
My Mom came out of surgery doing alright, the doctor told her that she didn't have to have the colostomy bag this time, that if her cancer comes back again this will have to take place. This is her third surgery in the colon, and it is getting thin. So she thinks she will get to come home tomorrow.
Now please pray they got it all like the doctor says, and that she will stay in remission the rest of her life so she does need any other surgerys and that colostomy bag.

Thank you again for the prayers.

I'm participating in a year long challenge, created by Carin. The goal is to be in one picture a week, for 52 weeks. Since us moms are always behind the camera, this gives us a chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. Fun challenge, right? You can join too! Just jump in right now and let me know you're playing along! Carin has added a Mr. Linky on that we can check out each others pictures.

20 Years Ago Today


20 years ago today I met my soul mate, we were young and oh so in Love. I Loved spending as much time with him as I could getting to know him, and learning this is the one for me. The man I want to spend the rest of my life with.


I would have to say that I Love him more today then way back then. We have had our share of up's and down's. but what couple hasn't. He has been there for me, and I for him.

March 2nd we will be celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary, and we are both looking forward to the celebration.

Attn. Prayer Warriors

I have a huge prayer request. My Mom Linda is having surgery on Thursday morning, they are going in and removing cancer cells, please pray for her surgery to go well, and that the doctor's have steady hands, and are able to get all the cancer removed, and that this will no longer be a problem for her, that she will be in remission the rest of her life.
Feel free to pass this request around, I know when two or more are joined in prayer, it can be powerful and amazing.

Thank you

Not Me! Monday

It was not me who missed a day of school last week, and now I'm behind in math.
Due to car breaking down!

It was not me who made manicotti on Saturday, for a house of 13, and was not me who ate way to much food Saturday than I should have, trying to loose weight.

It certainly was not me who tried to get my oldest son to so my math homework, only to find out he doesn't know how....LOL

It was not me who spent all day Wednesday creating my pretty blog, instead of doing housework and homework.

It is not me making this blog post instead of doing homework. Yeah Yeah Yeah I will get to it in a minute.

Computer's Are Crazy

I went to Sneaky Momma's blog and followed her instructions on how to make 3 column side bars, and got it to work after many tries. Well then I changed my background and my left side bar went away. I just don't know what I did wrong. Anyone have any suggestions?

Wordless Wednesday


OK I went and put some pictures in photo bucket, and now I'm trying to get them in my post, where I want them to be other than all on top of my posts. I got the HTML code for websites and blogs, but every time I try and get those photo's in here nothing shows up. What on earth am I doing wrong?

1 of 52

I am participating in a year long challenge, created by Carin , along with other bloggers. The goal is to be in 1 picture a week and post it, for 52 weeks. I'm a little late as I just learned of this cool idea. I figured it would be a good one to post and fun doing this, as I'm usually the one in charge of the camera. I will post my pictures on Tuesday's and will continue until I hit 52 weeks.

Carin may be adding a Mr. Linky that we can check out each others pictures.

If Yer Like Me

First off I would like to Thank everyone who commented on my Blogging for Dummy's post. I see lots of helpful idea's in there and will start putting them to use when I have spare time. I would like to point out a blog, that a very helpful lady puts up a new "how to" every Tuesday. You might want to head over to a Sneaky Momma and take a look, there just might be something new for you to learn over there and not make ya cry trying... well cry if your like me when ya can't figure something out and get it all messed up.

Again Thank you and Happy Monday!

Blogging For Dummy's

Yes my blog title is a book I need to own if there is a such of thing. There is so much I don't know about blogging and would really like to know.

1. How on earth do you put those fancy links in there for people to follow others blog?

2. How do you put pictures of your family on the sides like others have?

3. How do you get a fancy title with a picture up on top?

4. How do you get a music list on your blog?

5. How do you get pictures in between your blog posts? Every time I try, it puts all my pictures up at the top, and not between my writing.

I know there is more but that's all I can think of for now.

I Think I Lost My Thinking Cap!

As most of you know I'm taking college classes, this term Math and English. I always try my hardest and yesterday and today both I have a feeling of self doubt that I can make it through this term. Mind you this term has just begun a few weeks ago. Yesterday in math class it felt like I was trying to do something I have never seen before(like a foreign language), I have seen it many times, and lost it somewhere hoping to regain it, as I have a test on Monday.In English I worked on a paper and got not such a good grade, when I thought I knew what I was doing. I know that college is not an easy thing to accomplish for someone who hasn't been in school for 26 year(oops dated myself) ^smiles^ but darn, I think I have lost my thinking cap and need to find it again. I will keep you updated as to when I find that lil cap, dust it off and get my thinking on a roll again, meanwhile please keep me in your prayers, that I can find my cap, slap it back on my head and run with it.

Until next time

Wild Mountain

Our news paper says all eyes on Redoubt, the fumarole on the volcano doubles in size. I would like to show you some recent pictures taken, but not sure I can take them off of the Alaska Volcano Observatory, so here is the link to take a look.
I guess it's just a matter of time before it blows. We are prepared here at my house the best we can be, tarps and extra air filters for cars. Clean drinking water, extra sources of heating and electricity, stocked on food and dust masks for our faces if we have to go out.
Let me know what you think of those pictures.
