Cut, Cap, and Balance

Okay, so our family is getting this from all directions (since we share so many of the same connections)- but I thought I might reach a couple more people that might not have seen this yet. Take a look at this website- then join the support.

Happy Fathers Day...

to all of the great men in my life. 
Our family is truly blessed by each of you.
I am grateful for your wisdom, your courage, your humor, your patience, your faith, your talents, and your love.






 

 


PS- I have some small gifts for you, that are ready to SEND by fathers day, but won't arrive by fathers day :) Except, Dad might have received his already- and I was able to give Mike's to him this week- I also could have had the opportunity to give Sam's to him, but I forgot- so they will arrive some time next week. Have a great day- we love you.

Thirty Something Dress

This is my last "thirty something" post. This time my hair is okay- but the girls will love my dress. I actually made all three dresses. Two, blue/brown checked and one purple/yellow checked. Look at those puffy sleeves. AND I am actually trying to sing...now that's funny :)

Thirty Something- Birthday


 Look careful- 2 of Mike and 1 of Ryan.


 Looks like, over the years,  he is alittle more comfortable holding babies :)

Have a great day- we love you.
You are a great husband, father, and son.

Spare Parts

Over the years I have allowed the medical community to convince me that my body has spare parts that sometimes are no longer neccesary. When I was a child the first thing to go was my tonsils. I guess my body never really did miss those. Yep, bad sore throat for a while, but then everything was fine.
Then later, a doctor convinced me that some small bones in my toes needed to be shorten and put back together, removing some of the bone. As a result, I have some really funny looking toes. (Although toes are pretty funny looking to begin with.) Then a few years ago, another doctor convinced me that a major female reproductive organ was no longer needed.  That surgery threw my body into major hormonal depletion. Plus I think my body responded to that removal with fat replacement. There was an empty place there, let's fill it up with fat. Only thing is, I am sure there is more fat there now, than the organ that was removed. And... the original reason for the surgery was not solved. Anyway... my most recent spare part is a vein in my left leg. I guess it has gotten stretched, sluggish, blocked, lumpy, etc. And since I don't really need it any more unless I have heart bypass surgery, it will be "zapped" this week. (Even if I did need heart surgery and they needed a new vein, that one in my leg is so damaged that it wouldn't work anyway.)  I think most of the damage here began with 5 pregnancies- so yes, I am blaming this on my children. (But you all know that the blessings have far out weighed the sacrifice of my body) I am scheduled to have this surgery done first thing tomorrow morning. The doctor claims that he uses a Thermalite 1470 laser. Only one little glitch... the machine broke down on Friday and they are hoping to have it fixed or replaced by tomorrow. Is it worse to be the last patient on that machine or the first patient on a new or refurbished one??? And after paying for this procedure our high deductible will be met- if I have any other spare parts, I need to get them all taken care of this year :)

Memorial Weekend

I'm still here, just have my plate full. Even though things have slowed down at my store- lots of other things to do. We had some fun time with some of the kids and a couple of grand kids. The girls didn't trade babies, they went home with the correct mommy :)
