It's been a busy week so far. I'm hanging in there but have had to lower my expectations for this I keep forgetting that cleaning requires bending and I'm not doing so well in that area. It has been taking me twice as long to do EVERYTHING lately. I think to myself, I think I'll go get that great room clean and think it'll take me 5-10 minutes. Well, lol, it ends up taking me 30 minutes because I keep needing to sit down "for just a minute." I've got the living areas up to par and I'm just going to slowly go through the other rooms and just shut the doors on the rooms I just can't get to.

I've been able to make two different kinds of cookie dough and have baked one kind. I'll set the kids to making the sugar cookies today since that's the fun part and I'll make the pie. I'm not making the other two batches since I just can't do that

Isaac's surgery yesterday went great! They do things differently up here and they really make sure that they've prepared him before he leaves the hospital. Down in Miami, he would be really sick and alot of times screaming when he woke. Here they give him an IV after he's been put to sleep and it has anti-nausea meds, fluids, and pain reliever in it. When he wakes up, other than being groggy, he's raring to go! What a blessing! He was also in the first queue yesterday which meant getting his surgery first. He was in by 8am and that meant not sitting for several hours awake and hungry. That's a blessing. He's running around right now acting like his normal self, happy and hungry for the first time in a few

Eric bought me a new camera yesterday. We've been talking about it for a while and finally decided to bring one home and see if we like it. It's a Kodak Easy Share Z650. I looked at the Cannon's and the Sony's and just about everything else but this one was easy for me to figure out and it has GREAT zoom and it takes fab pictures! It was also pretty cheap for a 6mp camera. We paid $225 for it. I've already taken several pictures and I really like it. I have 90 days to decide if I'm going to keep it but I think that I'm already

Well, I guess that's it for now. This week has been a good week and I have MUCH to be thankful for this year.

So glad to hear how everything with with Isaac. It sounds like the move was a good thing for HIM.

Love all the calendar pictures.

You're right. This move has been a real blessing with his surgeries.

I'm glad that his surgery came out so well this time. Makes you wonder why they don't do the anitsanusea stuff at the other hospital.
Hey. I noticed you got a new camera! What fun! I remember when you got your last camera... I think I do anyway... wasn't it right about the time we met you the first time? I had a "moment" yesterday when I realized I hadn't actually PRINTED any pictures from my new camera and remembered the problems of my last camera looking good on the screen, but not after being printed. Anyway... WHEW.... I printed some and they look GREAT! Glad you're enjoying your new camera, too.

You would think that all hospitals would be doing what this one does but down there they just sent you home. It was awful.

Yep! We had just gotten the last camera when we met you. I STILL love that camera but with the kids getting older it was getting harder to get good pictures of their favorite things to

You know, I haven't printed out anything yet. That's a very good idea! Thanks for mentioning it.
