Great News for a Change

Have you ever sat in a doctor's office for 3 hours before? I have Never done that, so this was a shock for me, but he takes his time with you and doesn't rush you out of there. They did a hemoglobin 90 day average and I was so excited when he came in the examining room and told me my average was 112. But do I miss cookies, cakes, and candy, not to mention regular pasta, rice, and baked potoates, but not enough to have to go on insulin pills. Also found out that I have to call my surgeon to see if he is going to fix the hernia they found with the CT scan. I've had so many incisional hernias since I got the staph infection that I knew it was there---your body knows these things. Also, the doctor fussed at me for not coming in last week when I had some sort of flu, because now it's too late for a swab, but there is still some congestion he said. They made me put a mask on in the office just in case. I didn't go any where near crowds, so I doubt that it was the swine flu. I was supposed to go and have more blood work done this morning, but forgot and drank some coffee, so I will get my sil to bring me.

It was too late to go back last night, so I stayed another night. Al left me the car and he will have a friend from work drop him off in the country to pick it up.

As soon as the estate sale is finished, we are going to start painting and freshening up the house to sell it. I have already started pulling wallpaper off the walls in my former bedroom and the walls are beautiful behind it and the wood floors are still in great shape, so we are taking the carpet out also. I'm still dreaming of staying there, but if the house is sold, I will have to look for a small apt. here in Crowley. Things are not all that great and I made a horrible mistake turning onto on coming traffic and Al yelled at me and continued even after I said I was sorry. I asked him to please stop yelling, but he continued and that is one of the reason I have moved to the country, no further explainatioin needed.

I am bringing some things to craft at night to relax before going to sleep. I used my Micheal's card my daughter sent me and got another corner shelf for my cubes and 2 shelves because they were 40% off, so I almost doubled my gift card. Next week, I am going to come and get my Cuddlebug and cardstock and paper to work on some cards and a few other things I want to try.

I found some really great thrift items and one was an antique dressing table for $3.99. My daughter, Chris sent me some vintage things and one is a small square tablecloth with girls embroidered in each corner and a pillow case. She also found some Easter centerpieces from Hallmark from the 80s with the honeycomb bases. I will try and remember to take pictures for my next trip here. The dresser needs some work, but nothing that will hurt me.

I was planning on making my bedroom white and pink, but most of the things I have found are antique white, not to mention the curtains and dust ruffle my mom made for my bed, so I will go with that. Do you think a touch of white would still be okay?????????????

Well I guess I should get dressed and start packing the car to head back to Jennings. I hope you all have a great week. Blessings and prayers for all of you. Love and hugs, Pat

Glad to hear your doing a bit better.

Pray for Miss Priss. She's leaving for Africa on Wednesday! Her boyfriend JUST got back from his trip to Africa...two seperate trips two seperate times...

Anyhow..I'm so tired right now too. So much going on. Blah. I had to work today and that was tiresome in and of itself.

We will chat more later......just thought I would check in on you!
Be blessed,

Hi Pat:
Long time no hear. I like the idea of white (any shade) in your bedroom. That has to be difficult taking down the wall paper in your old bedroom.
I remember that beautiful greeting card you hand crafted and sent to me. You are soooooooooooooooo talented!!!
Take care and it is good to know you are doing better.
