Give Us This Day, Our Daily Bread...

Give us this day.... a total surprise.

I am just giving a Praise Report.   God sure does work in miraculous ways.   I was sure yesterday that there were no sales at WalMart or Target for school supplies and even if there were sales, I knew I couldn't afford to buy the things we needed to get the kids ready for school. Even if there were happening.......l I didn't have the money. I had avoided the dreaded ADS!   Yesterday my son and I found an IPOD Touch. Calls to Subway (where we found it -- outside the shop in the road)

Day to Day, one day at a time

Each day is bringing new challenges.   Today is a stress test for my heart.   Two weeks from now, a thyroid radioactive iodine test.   Tomorrow a tooth filling.   Therapy for the knee -- twice a week. It keeps freezing up and locking in place. Not good when you are walking. Might be on this dang cane for life.   Therapy for the head --once a week.   Asthma keeps me coughing, and the pnuemonia isn't entirely gone.   On the good side, my daughter Katy made Honor roll and wa

Reality check

Today I went to the surgeon who did my knee. I needed information about why my knee is locking up.   He said my knee is seriously damaged, with severe arthritis and that I should be having a knee replacement surgery -- but he doesn't do them. He said with my weight, they probably won't do knee replacement surgery at this time.   So -- reality check. Right now I have three more weeks of therapy and I need to do as much to stregthen my knee as possible -- then he recommends that I start s

I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that I am recovering from surgery fairly well. AND recovering from the pnemonia.       The bad news.   When I went into the hospital, they did a cat scan and found a 2 cm nodule on my thyroid. Wednesday I am starting with an ultra sound, and then will be going on to other tests (redioactive iodine anyone?)       The good news: Only about 10% of nodules wind up being cancerous.   The bad news: The bigger they are the more likely they are cancerous.   Then to

Deja'vu - or it is View?

I have lived this day before I think. Last year sometime.   [/color]Visting teaching was canceled. Between my busy schdule and my partners, we just didn't have enough time between us to get it done.   Tomorrow is the DENTIST I have about 3k+ worth of work that needs to be done, tomorrow I will be getting the BAD news about what exactly needs to be done. I know a bridge is needed, possible 3 cavities, and I know I need a root canal done. None of it will be done tomorrow but the xrays --

Preparing for...

I like doing things 'right'. One of the things I am trying to do 'right' is get my affairs in order in case something dire happens when I go under on Friday.   Yesterday, I wrote my will out with the help of a Will Writing program.   Put together a Living Trust: Put together a Power of Attorney.   Today I go to get them notorized.   My house is clean, well ordered and ready for anyone to walk in and find the documents that they need to 'take care of business'. I have put a binde

Mama Called The Doctor and The Doctor Said....

Actually the doctor left a message on the phone telling me that yes, the cartladge is torn and that there are "Several other issues" that the Orthpedic doctor will need to discuss with me.   I have been reading and my symtoms match a tear in the tendon, as well the cartledge. My knees (yes both of them) both LOCK UP and Collapse! I have pain no matter what position my knees are in. However, it has been this way for more than 12 years. Prior to my pregnancy with my daughter. I always attribut

Oy Vey!

Why didn't anyone tell me that MRI's are boring, headache inducing, pain making, hellish encounters with modern medicine?   Today I had an MRI on my knee. If the pain in my right knee wasn't bad enough, the left knee after about 5 minutes was soon chiming in, and my back was SCREAMING....MOVE RIGHT NOW... about 10 minutes into the THUMP THUMP THUMP played over and over again for an hour an a half. My entire body radiated the pain of not moving and the pounding noise that urged me to MOVE. Af

This and That

Yesterday I met with the Bishop of my church. Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter-Day Saints.. we are the Mormons.   I don't get food stamps. I 'miss' qualifying by a few dollars (they don't take into account any bills but your basic survival bills). Instead I go to the chuch for food.   About once every month and a half, I put in a food order for a month of food. I make it last a month and a half by extending it with MY food storage items. I don't duplicate what I already have.

Planning and Using Food Storage -- the basics for me

Today, right after Sacrament, I was asked by our Food Storage person to give a 2-3 minute talk on "How I use my food storage:|"   First, she wanted me to give it in less than an hour...TWICE... and second she was asking someone who gets panic attacks (for real) when people look at her funny. She knows that I buy bulk items from the cannery from her each year when I can, and that I am on a strict budget and rotate food storage   But despite misgivings, I said yes.   Auntie Flo had mad

Twilight Party....

Friday night was a blast. Actually the entire day was a blast. It was my older daughter's 12th birthday party celebration. A Twilight Party -- because both she and I am into Twilight and love both the movie and the books. In fact she has read all four books and read them TWICE! I have only read them once. She is a fount of trivia about Twilight and quotes it constantly.   So we planned a party. I wish I had pictures but it was a choice of printing out pictures for the party (decorations, t-s

An educations past elementary school. Medical care is provided by the government for myself and my children. The church provides my food for two weeks of the month. Overall, I liv

Time with my youngest!

My daughter and I created a limerick, actually we created two, but one turned out...well unsuitable for turning in 'officially' so we created another one for turning in. However her teacher read the first one and gave her a grade on the first one -- A+ LOL She said "Eeewwww....good but eewww..."   We started off with my daughter's name (Tya, age 11) and changed it to Mia (You will read WHY)   There once was a girl named Mia   Who lived in the land of Korea   She cooked all the foo

Shouts in the Dark

Last night at about 11 we heard screams. Sirens. I went to bed, with doors locked and the gun under my pillow.   This morning, my kids reported to me that 'something was happening outside' and the police told them to get back. They told me there was police tape up and they went under it and the police told them to go back the other way (they walk to school via this road). Come to find out, last night two women were stabbed by a man. http://www.azfamily.com/news/local/stories...ing.c823bb.htm

Spring Fling! (and more)

The ....things....I ordered came in. WOO HOO!!! Now I have to box up and ship the spring fling items. Ready to ship out on Monday! Can you say WOO HOO? I thought you could!   I packed the box, and then -- it wouldn't all FIT, so I unpacked the box, and then repacked another box. It wouldn't all FIT, so I unpacked the box, looked at what I was sending, looked throuigh all my boxes and went with a BIGGER BOX....it all fit. WOO HOO. I had to use a little survival tool as packing material. *grin*

TADA!

It is getting to be the end of the day./.. a long SUCCESSFUL day.   Katy is in a virtual bowling league. I took her to do her last months and this months bowling this morning -- 4 rounds. Lets just say -- she is not a bowler and I am not a good coach! Her lowest score was a 7. Her highest was a 53.   We then went and shared an appetizer at TGI Fridays. Good stuff, but too much of it.   Then off to my therapist's. I have agreed that A. I will go to church this weekend and sit outside

I have two other boxes to mail.   I found sheets for my neice for her birthday -- Spongebob. She loves Spongebob, and her birthday is Valentines day. I also got sheets for my nephews -- Spiderman! They love superheros. I also got them vitamins (free after coupons -- or almost free in one case). I s

Good Evening Mrs S,....

Well this place is amazing! I love it. Gidgits and Gadgets and places to put informations. I love it! Did I say that already? Well I do. I love it. There, I said it again.   Today has been a run around day. Started way too early. Got free breakfast at Denny's. Good stuff Free. I have been trying to prove to my Dad that there is such a thing as a free lunch since I was in my 20's. He has always said "There is no such thing as a free lunch". Yeah well Pffft. I have had a lot of free breakfasts
