words to live by.......

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!!"

The has been one hell of week so far........ugh!  The one bright spot was

After returning from my "Pre-Op" appointment at Barnes and not really feeling so good about going through yet another surgery on my arm I got my mail and this wonderful surprise was there.....I won it from Cindy Hess of http://cinlynsworld.blogspot.com/ Down on the Farm blog.  Gosh I was so excited to get it opened.......

A special thank you goes out to Cindy! Cant wait to try the Pie.......I will let you know how it turns out.

Ok, back to me being a little blue.......my arm has been causing me so much pain lately that I can't do the things I enjoy, so my quilting and sewing have been suffering!  Even the easy things like holding my grandbabies have become to painful.  I am praying so hard that this time I will be fixed!  My surgery is on the 25th and according to doctors and nurses I have had interactions with, if and I do mean IF all goes well I should be feeling better in just a matter of weeks.  Of course I also heard those words last July and then again last September.  I will try to look on the bright side of all of this, but........after a year of doing this and trying that.....its hard, real hard.

My daughter Shayne and her husband Richard are coming out tomorrow, so at least I can end the week on clean sheets, lol!  That has been the hardest of all chores, changing the darn bed!

I am going to keep my chin up and leave you all with:

Spring 2011, new life!
