I just sent Candy a message through her Meez, as I have an account also. She logged into it today, so I thought I would try and get a hold of her that way. I asked her to think about starting another blog about their homesteading life. Maybe I will hear back soon.

Candy from "Keeping the HOME' has shut down the blog, as they are now Homesteading somewhere.

An update to Wednesday's post; I bought season 6 of the Walton's last night!

Wednesday, February 18, 2009


I have not been spending a whole lot of time on the computer lately because:

1. I'm trying to read one of my Lamplighter books that I got towards the end of 2008, and haven't had a chance to read yet. The name of this one is; Rescued from Egypt.

2. I seem to be losing interest in being on the computer for so long. All I do now is check my e-mail, look at the blogs I read everyday( there are quite a few) and read a few news articles, and that is about it. And blog if I have anything to blog about.

My son and I have started watching season 5 of the Walton's! That is such a good family show! I still need to get season's 6 thru 9

My sister had her gallbladder surgery yesterday morning and did very well. She had to go through a process to even have the surgery, because she is on a blood thinner, so they had to take her off of the blood thinner for about 3 days prior, and then put her back on it yesterday after the surgery. She did have to spend the night in the hospital, and came home this morning. She told me that she still hurts some, but that is to be expected. Otherwise, she is just fine! She will be off work for about 2 weeks.

Hubby was able to go back to work today. He really started feeling better on Friday, and did do quite a bit Saturday, and we went to church yesterday. He still gets out of breath easily, but he'll be alright.

Our credit union called on Friday(to hubby's work cell phone) to let us know that our Debit card had been compromised, so we get new cards, new numbers, the whole works. It can be a [ain because now hubby has to change all the information for his online bill paying, but I guess it's worth it to be safe.

Hubby is feeling better, has been for a couple of days now, and is getting ready to help his oldest son go get some kind of bench with hooks on it for his house. They will have to take out the seats in our van and then travel up North to pick it up. He apparently had some kind of stomach virus. He is actually able to eat and not get sick to his tummy now. That is a good thing!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE!! We really don't have any plans because I didn't know for sure how hubby was going to feel, but we may go out later to Steak and Shake and get a couple of shakes, depends on how he feels I guess.

I had to take my husband to the E.R. last night because his back had been bothering him since Saturday morning and getting worse, so I was thinking Kidney Stones, so was the Doctor on call that I had to call. They did a CAT SCAN and could not find anything there. No Kidney Stones!! So he took today off of work, so I took advantage of that and made him a Dentist appointment, boy he is NOT pleased with me. He has a cavity he found Friday morning, and I want him to get it taken care of. Is there anything wrong with that?

On to the Grocery Game: I decided to try it after reading ZSUZSANNA'S experiences with it, and I gotta tell ya, I'm frustrated! I can't get the coupons to coordinate with the sales and vice-a-versa, I can't do my shopping when I need to do it. I am in my third week, so needless to say I have not really saved much money at all. But, I will keep working at it.

Hubby isn't feeling very well this morning, so we did not go to church. We went to a Catholic church that I have been to before, and hubby seems to like it real well, and wants to go back. In fact this church has a school with it, the school was a grade when I went there for 8th grade, I think it's a High School now.

We helped his oldest son move yesterday from an apartment in Kansas to a house in Missouri. The house is somewhat small, but is perfect for him. He also lost his job on Wednesday, but had to move anyway, because he was committed. So, hopefully, he will find employment soon.


My youngest daugter has lost another baby, she did manage to carry this one the farthest, but it died a couple of days ago. Her boyfriend took her in to the hospital where they did a sonogram and looked for over an hour trying to find a heartbeat and never found one. They gave her some shots of something, she will go back on Tuesday and get 3 more shots of the same medicine I guess, and then they will do a D&C, after she starts bleeding. I finally told her that she just need to get her tubes tied, as she will never be able to carry a baby to term. This makes like her 7th miscarriage.

Tomorrow is WEAR RED DAY in conjunction with National Heart Health Month! It is to make people aware of WOMEN'S Heart Health.

More Women die of Heart disease than of Cancer. If any of you get the Parade Magazine in your Sunday paper, there is an article in there on Heart health and the differences between men and women, and the kinds of treatment that each get. Women get treated differently for their hearts than men do. It is a very good article, and I highly recommend that everyone read it.

So, let's all WEAR RED TOMORROW!
