It continues....

It seems life is just one big continuum. My cough continues, my vision problems continue, my long work day is continuing, my frustration with my work husband continues, my frustration with needy patients continues ... do I need to continue? Some days I just want a fresh, new, never before seen, heard or felt day. Everything I experience to be new!!!!!

Well I guess it won't be today, and I know it won't be tomorrow. Alas, all I can hope for right now is to get a good night sleep (with the help of Robitussin AC) and know tomorrow my sissy poo Lisa is coming to see the folks (more on that later). Here's to a new tomorrow!

Weekend Fun

This past weekend we celebrated Richards B-day two different times with Garrett and Heather. Such a treat to spend two nights with them, I feel very special. My nasty cough continues and it put a little damper on my fun, but being the trouper I am I marched on.
Heather and Garrett took a turn at baking this BEAUTIFUL red velvet cake for Richard. It tasted as good as it looked. But as heather said, it was not Richards German Chocolate Cake. Which she will get for her bday in November! It was fun and I enjoyed time with my family. I am still getting the hang of my new camera. It is definately bigger and heavier. But loving it so far.

What we do...

I woke up to an unexpected call this am. I had a day full of plans and unfortunately my sister Lindy needed a chauffeur for Tori to Fresno. I guess you cannot ride the train alone if you are under 15. Well while my hubby Richie does not understand I have a hard time saying no to those I love, which only involves a select few. So I jumped up, through on some clothes and off we went. But of course Richie had to come along and make a comment about the situation every five minutes. We met up with Tori's friends family, headed back. We stopped and saw Nana, who once again refused to get up and see us and had some lunch. So I did not have the day I planned but oh well, tomorrow is another day.

I could get used to this

Tommy is off this week and I feel like I am the one on vacation. I get to sleep in till 5:30 am, get to work 7:15 am and home at 5 PM Oh my gosh all the time I have to shop on the internet, scrap or just watch one of the million recorded shows I have on my DVR. Yipee!!!!!!!! I leave you with a sweet pic of my Rachie and my great niece Khylie at her first birthday party this past weekend. Both are such little cuties!!!!!

What a cutie

My little perfect loveable Chipper. He is the son of a grand champion bengal cat and loves to play. What he doesnt like is his picture taken. However richie was playing with him this morning and I was able to snap a few. His eyes are green like sea glass and his coloring is a golden brown. Oh soooooo cute!!!

Appreciation Day

Today is my Appreciation day and my twin sister, Lindy's birthday. I stopped having birthdays years ago. I feel appreciation makes it so much easier to swallow. This is our 46th year since birth and life is pretty good. I have two college graduates, a husband whose only job now is to take care of me, parents who live with me and help me anyway they can. Two kitties and two puppies who love me unconditionally. Sisters who love me for the person they know I am and not the facade and a handful of friends who keep me together. So today I plan to live, laugh , love and repeat. My favorite motto!!

What a weekend

I love love love a three day weekend. I really would like to have a three day weekend every weekend. I finally feel rested and I feel like I got a lot accomplished and even spent some time with some friends and family. Rachie is home for a couple of weeks and I was busy busy making stuff. Here is a special bear birthday card for a teddy bear first birthday party and a princess card for a princess's bday. My wishblade and printer got a steady work out this weekend. I hope everyone was as productive as me!
