In 24 hours, my family has had 4 wisdom teeth pulled, a skin cancer surgically removed, and a colonoscopy. 3 of us down and out. The extra one is away at the beach enjoying herself. What a ride! LOL!
Update on the redo of our garden: I had 3 boys out in my yard laying putting down newspaper as a weedblock and laying pinestraw to keep the weeds out. They have done two beds out of 4 that need to be done. I'm paying them $1.00 a bale, which is great for me, and since it isn't over 100 degrees anymore, I think it is ok with them. They can jump in the pool when they get hot and there is lots of food and drink.
My ceiling has had a leak in our family room for about two months. It was finally determined to be related to the "terlet" upstairs. Which is a huge relief as we thought it was the flashing on the roofline. Finally someone is here to fix that mess...the leak and then next week, they will come and repair the ceiling in our family room...for the third time...The other three were do to storms which caused leaks.
And finally, my son's friend just turned 18. He is thinking of joining the Army. I don't know if they will take him as he was never able to make it past 9th grade in school, and this year finally gave up and dropped out. This is not a friendship that I encourage as this young man was headed nowhere, but I feel distressed about him joining the Army at this point in our country's history. I'm pro-military, but anti-Iraq, and I'm afraid they will send him to Iraq.
I plan to scrap today, as I am the one that had the skin cancer removed. I have a two inch gash on my neck. I shouldn't call it a gash. It was done by a plastic surgeon so I doubt I will have a scar that will look like anything more than a line on my neck that is supposed to be there. But I had no idea that they were going to make an incision that large, but they said it should all be gone, which is the main thing! Anyway, I don't want to get it in the sun so mainly I have to be indoors until the pool gets some shade.
That means cleaning up from the boys that have been here for the past two days. LOL!
And the highlight of my coming week is my son is scheduled for his senior pictures. Now I could shoot his myself, but it is part of the journey, isn't it? And I want to take it all in and enjoy him making it this far. If you have a child with ADHD, you know exactly what I mean. It's been alot of work and love to get him to this point, and I'm so proud, I'm going to do every corny little, traditional thing that comes along and wallow in every delightful moment! I'm just busting with pride at my evolving man!!!
Hi! Come on in and look around!
Welcome to my window on the world. A snapshot of my life and experiences. I'm a photography junkie and a scrapbook addict. I capture it all here, and share my journey down this amazing road called LIFE with you!
