November 30, 2008

Well I am back.. took me a bit to find the computer.. been a crazy Thanksgiving Holiday week. With the kids and the husband home, I never can even get within 2 feet from the computer.
I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I myself think I cooked too much. Since I have been losing weight, I didn't seem to have the appetite for the casseroles. I think Christmas I will just do the basic, peas, m/potatoes, gravy, stuffing, turkey and a small ham. Too much, is too much.
I am becoming more of a grazer. A few simple appetizers and my new fav.... Sonics diet limeade...

It seems like life, or my life in general is taking a new path. Gosh, you think you have done it all and God shows you a whole nother way.

We still have the baby and are in the process of talking them into letting him be adopted by us. I will pursue that in February. We have had him for over 2 months solid and the first 2 months of his life, off and on a few weeks. I see this as a win, win situation. He is beautiful and growing fast and alert. He is thriving in this house. I want him to always be and feel safe. So please keep us in your prayers.

Me, well I hit the old orthopedic doctor, Yea! no, I have no cartlidge in either hip, He says it has been years of wear and tear. So the plan is double hip joint replacements.. Fun...You think! He offered me no medicine or anything. Just sent me on my way, saying as long as I can stand the pain....and see me in 6 months.. wow!
Any who, I think when I see him in May I will see if we can start the procedures, Maybe one in the first of June and the other during Thanksgiving next year. We will see. Like my sister said, " Go at it like an athlete" She is right. I have to lose the additional 40 lbs and keep up the exercising. I will be the best patient and get right up on my feet. I know this is a big thing.. but in God all things are possible.

I just wanted to keep everyone up to date..
Gotta run, they are putting up Christmas lights on the house.. May not be able to help much, but I can still run my mouth.. "There aren't joint replacements for my jaws are there?"

Take care and keep in touch.....

To my sister... she knows which one I am speaking about....she just spurs me on to blog. Blogging is a great release of all the fun I have around here.

What's new? Well so far we have had the baby for over a month now. Yes, as your mouth is dropping, I am trying to talk them into letting me adopt him. I checked around though and it is going to be 2000 dollars. Wow, and then you wonder why people don't step up and do the right thing. It seems everything is about money. So now I guess I will be saving up. It may take awhile but hopefully between that time, their situation keeps them away from us and the baby.
He is happy, healthy and growing.
I can't for the life of me understand why some people have children. This particular situation is really kinda of a mess. It seems that a grown man (45) and a grown woman (24) can not seem to see what a priority is. They would rather beg and get assistance than get a job. I am just appalled. I have however just given it all to God. It will be whatever He wants. But for now the baby is safe and here.

As for me... I have an orthopedic appointment on Tuesday, Nov. 25. And if I don't give myself an anxiety attack before I go, I will be fine. I have always for the last few years had problems, getting up, down and just walking around some days. I lost the weight thinking that it would help. 298-238 but it seems to be worse. It seems to radiate around my hip and into the legs. I can probably come up with a million diseases. I just hope it isn't too bad. I really try not to think about it. I will keep everyone up to date.

As for the kids, Elizabeth is enjoying the senior life. I will post one of her essays for college soon. What a tear that from her mother..hahahah
Thomas is on a hiking field trip to canyon mtn.??? never heard of it. But he is in the Science Club. He can be so shy and now he is doing something he loves. I thought this year in school was going to be the same as years before, but he is really holding his own. He has a few weakness' but who doesn't.

Well I am gonna go.. gotta get all the kids up. And the baby.

I just want to ask everyone for their prayers for the baby and for myself.
Will keep everyone up to date..
I swear....
Love to my sister...
and love and keep in touch to everyone else..
