God is with you ~

Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid or discouraged.
For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9

And as I go into surgery tomorrow I know God is with me!

I am going to work really hard to recover as soon as possible!

I believe ~

I believe in the sun even when it is not shining.
I believe in love even when not feeling it.
I believe in God even when He is silent. anonymous

Jury Duty

I received a summons to report to jury duty on Aug 30th! Well as I have said my surgery is on Aug 27th. I turned in all my paperwork to the court about my surgery. And you know what they denied my request to be excused! lol Can you believe that? I guess they want me to come by ambulance to jury duty!
Well I called this morning and finally got it straighten out! I now will have jury duty in November!

I can't believe it has been 33 years since Elvis died. That is one of those moments that you remember exactly where you were when you heard the news. I was sitting on my couch when a special bulletin came on TV saying Elvis had died. I was so sad!
When I was a kid I loved Elvis. Whenever one of his movies came on I ran around the house so excited! I couldn't wait to watch him. I had his picture on my closet door, that I kissed goodnight.
My favorite movie of his was Kissing Cousins! What was yours?

Raggedy Ann and Andy

These are my Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls from when I was little. You can see they were well played with. I have no ideal what happened to his eyes! Maybe I played doctor on him!
Does anyone know if these dolls can be machine washed? They are so dirty I would like to clean them but I don't want them to fall apart. Any suggestions?
And why don't little girls play with Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls anymore?

I'm smiling!

My surgery is scheduled for August 27th! I have a date; I am happy! Thank you all for the encouraging comments!


I caught a picture of this lit' hummer coming in for a drink!

I have anxiety! I have been waiting for over a week for the Surgeon's office to call me back about my surgery. I don't know what is taking so long. I have left messages with no returned calls. I want to get the show on the road. I want to get this surgery over and done with. At this rate it will be September before I get it. I've never had surgery so maybe this is normal. I just feel in limbo! I am hoping I will feel better after I vent! Please pray for me!

Back to School

My two older grand children will be back in school starting Wednesday. I am going to miss them they have kept me company this summer. It will be quiet without them here. I can't believe how early they are starting school this year. It gets earlier and earlier every year. When I was going we didn't start until after Labor Day. This is the first year I was not able to help them buy the school supplies and I feel sad about that. But I am on a fixed income now and I just didn't have any extra this year. I am going to plan better for next year so I can help some. That is another thing that has changed since I went to school. All our supplies were furnished by the school. Oh well I guess that is just one of many things that happened in the good old days! lol
