An Elephant??? Really?

So last night I had a dream, well can you call it a dream or should we call it a nightmare? YIKES.

I was somewhere, no clue where or who I was with, and for some reason I needed to take cover in my car or a car. Whatever. And suddenly this HUGE elephant charged the car, well I felt safe enough locked inside, until he SAT on the car and it started to crush.

I was able to crawl onto the floor almost underneath the front seats... Now the good part about that is I WAS ABLE to do that, because I am no longer as fat as that elephant. Then the crushed car started rolling fast down a huge hill.

I survived, but really, who dreams about an elephant sitting on their car? Any dream solvers out there?

Guess maybe I have a lot on my mind, weighing me down, kind of like the elephant in the room scenerio? LOL

Adam comes in 9 days... happy days will be here once again.

Goodbye Janmum

Janmum to Adam or mom to Angie and Janice to most everyone else. We said goodbye to her today, and remembered the life she shared with everyone. It of course was a sad day but also we know that Janice is no longer in pain. And for that we are all happy. Cancer is a vicious, awful, horrible disease and we continue to pray for a cure.
The flowers were beautiful, daisy's and wildflowers, her favorite. Full of color and beauty and life, just as she would have wanted it to be.

Janice had two children and three grandchildren and one on the way due in the Spring. Many things could have been said about Janice but one thing that was always evident was her LOVE for her family. With all her heart she loved her children and grandchildren and right to the last breath they and their happiness were foremost on her mind and heart.

Angie and I
(She will always be as a daughter to me and I will do my best to be a mother to her in Janice's absence)

In memory of Janice E Harmon

Them Bones Them Bones Them Dry Bones

Yep, that's me. Now you can all see what I look like on the inside, LOL. I had my annual bone density test yesterday and the tech was nice enough to give me a picture of my bones. I've never seen my bones before, so I thought it was COOL.

The test showed that my bones are strong and healthy and dense, so this means I am absorbing my vitamins and nutrients just fine. Woo Hoo, that's great news and something I was a little worried about since my mom has severe osteoporosis, I however am showing no signs of that disease. God is so good.

The testing took place on the third floor of the building and with no thought or fear I took the stairs the whole way up and down. I have to admit though UP is easier and faster than DOWN. Also this test had me laying flat on my back and going under a machine, this is a NSV (non-scale victory) because in the past they have tried to do MRI's etc on me but I NEVER could fit to pass through the machines, even an OPEN MRI. Not to mention laying on my back caused great pain and made it hard to breathe. Not anymore. My life has changed so much.

Speaking of change, look at that a Christmas Tree in my living room. yes that is a HUGE change. I haven't had a tree up in well over 10 years. BUT this year Adam will be here for Christmas and I was told I HAD to have a Christmas Tree. No problem, I'll do anything for the Bubba, anything.

Saving the decorating for when he gets here, except for the lights and the bows. Somehow I managed to lose my Christmas Tree skirt while everything was in storage, so I am hurrying up to make one before Adam arrives. Here is my progress so far. Can I just say I LOVE this pattern, so easy and pretty. If you are a crocheter you can find the pattern here.

Well I guess that's about it for my update today. I really want to get back to this pattern and finish it up.

Adam is Coming

As you can see from the ticker I added Adam is coming in just 16 days. I can hardly wait. I want it to be time already.

How can you NOT wanna HUG that face every moment of every day?

I saw Dr Polynice today. This is him. I told him he had to have his picture taken with me, all my Drs are on my one year check up visit. LOL. He said the scar looks great and doesn't need to see me again until August. He also said I should make my goal weight about 150 because the rest of the weight will be gone if I can ever get the excess skin removed. So if I went much lower than that I would end up being too thin. God that is so foreign to me, I never thought someone would tell me I was TOO THIN.

Oh and I finished my design for the 2011 breast cancer calendar, I sent it to Rachel to be blocked and photographed, I wish I had her talent in that area, she makes every cloth look like a masterpiece. The pattern won't be available until the 2011 calendar comes out next October but I thought I'd at least share the design with you. I really LIKE this one a lot.
I do need a name for it, any suggestions?

I guess I'll sign off for now, as susal I am tired early. Maybe I finally reached the age where staying up till midnight is not an option?

Have a great night and if all goes well I'll blog again tomorrow.
