Friday Catchup

So many things have been happening here, that I've been too busy to blog.  Most of you keep up with me on facebook, but just in case there's 1 or 2 who are wondering what's going on with us lately, here are a few bullets to inform you:

  • Doug's mom had extensive abdominal surgery yesterday.  They removed about a foot of her large intestine, but she had no complications and was resting in her room by yesterday evening.
  • Doug flew out Wednesday morning to be with her and his grandma.  He will be home next Tuesday night.
  • It was 80* here the day before he flew out.  It was 25* with snow on the ground when he arrived in Ohio, and they are expecting more of the white stuff today. =))
  • Our sweet friends were able to pick Doug up from the airport in Indianapolis, and will be taking him back.  We are so grateful that they were willing to do that, and then drive him to his mom's house.  They also blessed us with a love offering that will just about cover the cost of Doug's ticket.  See?  Really sweet friends…really grateful!
  • I was priviledged to sing at a friend's mother's funeral yesterday.  Mrs. Ruby was a member of my church before our pastor was even there, and we just celebrated his 40th anniversary!  She was a Godly, hardworking woman; and I was honored to have a part in her homegoing service.
  • Our clothes dryer has been on-again, off-again for several weeks now.  It looks like we'll be shopping for a dryer with our tax return.  Not exactly the way I'd choose to spend a big chunk of it, but thankful that the money is available.  Also, it will be my first brand new dryer.  I'm sure I will enjoy using it.
  • We had a fun shopping trip to Whole Foods before Doug left, so I have lots of yummy, healthy foods to enjoy while he is away.
  • Isaac had his check up with his neurosurgeon.  Everything with his shunt is looking well, with no problems or issues.  Yay!!!  He was amazing in the MRI!  He totally did not want to lay his head down, but he listened to us and obeyed – on purpose – and then kept his eyes glued to me in the mirror through the whole test.  I was very proud of him!
  • Our church's radio station is having its once-a-year pledge drive.  We call it "Restorathon".  It makes for 3 exciting days of radio listening! ;)  This year, they are also streaming video from Restorathon Headquarters, so that those of us at home can enjoy watching as well as listening.
  • I had a great time last Saturday recording a jingle for the Restorathon.  My two friends Myra and Lisette met me at the studio and we laughed our way through the recording session.  It was wonderful!  And truthfully, I feel like I need to use quotations for most of words in those sentences – LOL!!!  It's just a tiny little room, and we are in no way professionals, BUT the engineer is really excellent, and makes it sounds top-notch!
  • I woke up this morning with sinus congestion, a major headache and a sore throat.  I think it's probably due to all the pollen I was subjected to yesterday; but I still feel miserable, regardless of the reason.  I used all the cure-alls in my arsenal, and hope to feel better soon.
  • I won't have help with Isaac tomorrow, and only a few hours on Sunday.  If you think of us, would you pray for strength and stamina for me?  I'd really appreciate it.
  • In case you want to watch/listen to our Restorathon, you can go here:  WLVF-Gospel 90.3
  • Have a happy weekend!!!

  1. What a wonderful blessing that Doug was able to make the trip. YAY, for wonderful friends who helped!!
    WOOT! So glad Ike’s check up went well. I know how wonderful having that check up checked off the list is. What a good boy to obey during the test, too!!
    Take care! Praying you will feel better soon. Allergies are nasty…I know. Glad it’s not a cold, but allergies are icky, too! Wish I was close by to drop in and give you a hand or at least some company while you & Isaac are holdin’ down the fort!
    Hugs & Prayers


  2. all the activities do seem to come at the same time, don’t they? πŸ˜‰ I’ve learned to take them as they come, and if I can join in, I do; if I can’t, I don’t. Thanks for the prayer. πŸ™‚
