We love you so much!!
We love you so much!!
Hannah is the queen of multi-tasking. Yes, she is crocheting while eating an icee and reading a book- oh, and if you count the conversation we're all having... that would be four things, simultaneously, being done. I have real struggles with doing just one thing! She has flown away to FC where she will no doubt put these skills to good use and perform wonderfully. We miss her and Audrey, but we know they are on an adventure of a lifetime. And they have each other. They made the FC chorus, yesterday and so a big ole CONGRATULATIONS goes out to them! Love you girls!
Four of my favorite people. Son, John- who is always smiling and scheming- as Hannah says, "Nothing's ever simple with you."
Nieces, Hannah and Audrey. This picture was taken last summer during their visit and they're back again for a couple weeks! What a thrill to have them here! The boys are going to the Recharge weekend, but the girls opted to stay with me- now don't I feel special? yep, I do.
And last, but certainly not least, is my dear sweet daughter in law. Laurie Anne will be arriving early next week with her family and then we'll feel complete. Getting antsy and ready for them to get here, already. Wes, you hear that? No dillydallying...
Yes, they're sharpening knives 'cause that's what they do.
I had a very good visit with my new ear, nose, throat doctor. What a novelty- he actually took the time to listen to me. My eardrum had ruptured again a couple weeks ago. Third times a charm. Time to keep this from happening again. Dr. Rogers agreed. So he spent a good bit of time with me and outlined a plan. I love a man with a plan. Makes one feel so much more optimistic. I should be feeling considerably better in the next couple of weeks. Tubes in my ears seem to be a part of the plan and then drying out my wet sinuses. If that doesn't get rid of the infection/inflamation/superhydration in my mastoids, surgery might happen, but he sounded like he was hopeful that just drying up the environment in there might actually do the trick. But one thing at a time. Ears first and then we'll work our way in. Some might say there isn't far to go.
The girls gave me a hand painting my kitchen. Wow what a job! 10' ceiling and all the cabinetry certainly create a challenge. But it is looking very nice. I just have a second coat to put on a couple walls- shouldn't take but a few minutes, tonight, and then I can start to put things back together- light fixtures, pot rack and some glassware. Best part- aside from a sunny yellow kitchen- is that everything has been scrubbed up- save the ovens. I figure that's why they have doors... I thought I had picked out a nice, soft, pastel yellow. I guess I don't do pastel. But it looks very snazzy with the blue ceiling, if I do say so myself. Of course, now the cupboards are screaming for a new coat of paint as they look decidedly dingy. Ain't that the way it goes? But that'll have to wait.
