WE ARE HAVING A BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is due January 18, 2014. His middle name is Neil after my first son who was stillborn. They haven't picked out a first name yet. I am going hog wild looking at baby clothes and buying. I got him an outfit that has a tie printed on a little shirt and pin strip pants and hat and white spats. The pocket of the shirt reads; "I'm the Boss," It is so cute. I also got Blake and Yvette a silver picture frame that has a large oval for birth picture and 12 little... Sign in to see full entry.

Time FlysWhere Did theSummer GO????

here has the summer gone? Here we are into September. Of course, the rain didn't make things rememberable. It was one dreary rainy day after another, it seems. Today was just absolutely beautiful. There was not a cloud in the sky. It only got to 85 today but it was humid. Rick was off and drove me today. I had to go have trigger points injections this afternoon in my neck and shoulder. I am really gonna have to find a massage therapist. I keep forgetting to call my acupuncturist because I have... Sign in to see full entry.

Beach Trip

Sunrise at Myrtle Beach. We just got home from a 4 day trip. We had a great time and celebrated out first anniversary of being together. We ate so much great seafood. We went to a murder mystery audience participation play. Nice experience but don’t think would spend the money again. We went on a dolphin cruise but didn’t get to see any dolphin so we have a never expiring ticket to take another cruise. We ate at Juel’s Hurricane Restaurant on the Little River. I had the best oysters I’ve ever... Sign in to see full entry.

Where Does the Time Go.

This summer has flown by. Well, mostly floated by with all the rain. Of course, losing a month to an abcessed tooth didn't help. I don't know the connection but anything that has to do with teeth be it going to the dentist or a toothache causes a Fibro flare. That tooth certainly kicked by butt this past month. There was no extracurricular activity other than work and sleep. It finally quit hurting last week but I'm still dealing with the Fibro and Chronic Fatigue. However, one more week and...

Rain, Pain Go Away

We have had rain everyday this month. The bridge I have to cross to get home usually has about 10 feet from water level to arch of bridge. The water drifts lazily downstream. Now when I get home, the water level is about 3 feet from the arch of the bridge. The water rushes down stream at a furious pace. I hsve had to stop and pull over because I couldn't see to drive. The other bane of my existance these past weeks has been an abscessed tooth. I kept thinking it would go away. Last Sunday I had... Sign in to see full entry.

Rick and I painted today. It has been a long, long time since I didn't have to do everything by myself. He is so organized. We went to Sherwin Williams and had our paint mixed and picked a paint for the chest and dresser. We both immediately picked that same color for the furniture and for the front deck porch. He is off this week and is stripping and sanding the front deck porch. We finally have our bedroom decorated the way we want with our beach theme and the right colors on the wall. The...

A Weekend in the Woods

ick and I spent the weekend at Hot Springs Spa in a secluded cabin. Hot Springs is a natural hot mineral springs. We had our own hot tub jacuzzi. It was a much needed break. Cabin 10 the delux cabin with a bath and shower. It also was equiped with a mini kitchen and dishes. The bedroom was a loft room that we had to climb a ladder to get to. The ceiling was sloping so Rick had to watch his head. He's 6'3". This is the Rogue. It drives really nice. I've already had to climb a muddy driveway up a... Sign in to see full entry.

Thanks Mom We Have a New Car

An interventon from the other side has happened yet again. Last week the Scion's air conditioning line stopped up again. Of course, it was a Butler/Boone day which means a curvy mountain road by the lake. So I got a shoe full of water every other curve. The lease is about up so after I had the line fixed on Friday, Rick and I went looking at a car for me. I am traveling about 100 miles or more a day. We weren't going to buy just look. We drove a Subaru Crosstrek but Rick didn't like the way it... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm Going to Be a Granny

I'm supposed to be quiet about it but I can't. I'm so excited. It will be a January baby. Blake and Yvette are having a baby. They sent me a picture of the stick that said yes. We had a family cook out on Monday wih Yvette's family. Kavira is just as excited. Yvette can't eat and she's really tired. She is still in Grad School for Public Health and working full time. Monday she was able to eat watermelon and mashed potatoes. She just doesn't have an appetite. They are having one last fling this... Sign in to see full entry.

Work Fun, Fun, Fun, Fun, Fun

Work is fun. What more can I say. I never enjoyed a job more except for delivering babies at the moment of the delivery. I have been so busy seeing members and training nurses for this area. We are booming. I am finally getting to work the area I am most familiar with since I've trained nurses for Kingsport and Bristol. I am keeping my favorites in Bristol though. I have gotten very attached to a few members. They are so sweet. One has chickens that lay green eggs and he sells them. Yes, we have... Sign in to see full entry.

Starting my New Job

I start my full time job on Monday although this past week has been more than full time. I have been given a promotion and a raise before I even start. I have been asked to be an area coordinator and train and interview new hires for up here in this area. I am very excited. I can't believe the money. $$$$$ Lots of work and driving but I really love it. I enjoy going into homes and teaching. I went into the hospital this past week and saw several members in one day. I ended up with 15 new... Sign in to see full entry.

Well I Took A Wrong Turn

I took a wrong turn coming home from Bristol last week and got to take the scenic route home. I remembered vaguely the area from my home health days but couldn't remember where to turn to main road. I called Snaz so he could look up landmarks on mapquest to guide me. He told me I was in Alabama. I told him I'd be a little late for supper.LOL We finally figured out where I was and where the road connected with civilazation and I got home. I told Brookie about it and Saturday she had me at Verizon... Sign in to see full entry.

Spring Has Sprung

Although my body has not switched on to Spring yet, the weather has turned to 70-80 for this next week. Rick mowed the yard today and I painted one of my metal chairs purple. When Rick took a break, I said I wanted to paint the other chairs: one yellow, one green and one red or orange( we said the colors in unison and I had just thought of it right before he took a break). This past weekend was a wonderful do nothing weekend. No plans, no work, no moving. The only obligation was going to store... Sign in to see full entry.

Slow Warming

Slowly but surely we are starting to warm up. The wind makes it very chilly though. Spring flowers are starting to bloom and some trees are budding out. I can't wait for warmer weather. Rick has a lot of plans to get his yard in order. He has a lot of beautiful plants and rock gardens. We will have fun this summer working outside. I still am waiting on more referrals for my new job. It is suppose to be picking up. I added 3 this week but 2 are only one time visits and assessments. I am really... Sign in to see full entry.

Snow Snow and more Snow

Spring where are YOU????????????????????? We got 4 and 1/2 inches of snow this week. I am so ready for the warmth of spring and summer. I need some sunshine and a walk by the river. Loving my new job and being able to give back for all the help Richard and I had. Supposed to get really busy next week and especially the week after with referrals. I have 8 members I am visiting now weekly. I am really enjoying meeting this some really interesting people and seeing some great scenery. Going for a... Sign in to see full entry.
