I was driving home from therapy on Thursday and ahead of me was the darkest sky I had ever seen. I remembered I had my camera in my purse so while driving on the highway at 65mph I managed to get it out, turn it on and point it out the windshield and snap this photo. Funny it doesn't look as black in the picture but it seemed like I was about to drive into a BLACK HOLE. It was a little scary.
I got some new clothes this week, from a friend, my BFF, and everything she sent me fits and the good news is they are all one or two sizes smaller then what I wear now. She sent me 2 nightgowns (pink of course) does she know me or what? A black pair of exercise shorts with a pink stripe down the sides and a pink tank top. Oh and a new bathing suit (mine is wearing out) it's brown but gorgeous. I didn't take pictures of them but I should have. Maybe next weekend, I am too tired now, it's been a long day.
I have a baby shower to go to next Saturday so I am frantically trying to knit up a couple bibs and a hat and booties. I have a feeling I may be shopping at Walmart before then. I am not making much progress yet. I am such a procrastinator. The fact that I think I CAN actually go to Walmart and shop makes me excited. This is something I wouldn't even have considered even three months ago.
Adam wants to know if you are able to find him??? He is hiding. It's tricky but if you really search the picture you might just spot him. LOL. I love playing hide and seek with a four year old, they are just so sure if they can't see you then you for sure can't see them. We had a lot of fun this weekend. I wish I could share him with you all, when you are having a down day he would just brighten it right up. I can not imagine life without Adam.
Speaking of LIFE without...
This is Lady. She belonged to a friend from church who moved and couldn't take Lady with her so we became her adopted parents. That was 9 years ago. Unfortunately I have been out of work for 3 years now and caring for her as gotten to be more then we could manage, she has some health issues. So a friend drove from Maine to pick her up, our very own Animal Rescuer. She has already done more for Lady then I could have hoped for and even though she is not part of my family anymore, I KNOW she is now getting the best care and lots of LOVE.
I figured out how to get some new songs onto my IPOD (oddly enough this IPOD also came from the friend who came to get Lady) I now have 6 hours of Praise and Worship to workout to and keep me strong and at peace while I am in the hospital.
This week coming I have my last 2 Dr visits before therapy. Monday and Wednesday I have dates with the monster machines. Tuesday is my endoscopy and Thursday I meet with the surgeon for the last time and a final weigh in. It's getting close. I have been nothing but excited, but I am feeling a little nervous suddenly. I think I am nervous about life afterward. Things are going to be so different. I am going to be able to do things a "normal" person can do. It's been so long. It's like being pregnant for the first time, you are excited yet nervous, because life as you know it will never be the same again. Ha it's funny I feel like I am about to give birth to ... MYSELF. Now that's comical.
Well I am sure I have talked off your ear enough. It's tough when I save all the talking for the weekends.
Tomorrow morning Regis and I will announce the winner of week three in the contest...
I HOPE IT'S YOU!!!!!
