I need Spring



2008_0226misc2008family20409   If you are anything like me, you are fed up with winter.        

    I have had ENOUGH of the snow and want the spring to come NOW!!!!!!

Last year I took some pictures of the garden and I needed a pick me up so I thought I’d share a little bit of spring with you all.

I hope you enjoy a bit of color after all that white we’ve had.




Thank you all for your prayers for my son.

We have had the MRI and it says…. 

HE’S FINE!!!!!!!!!  Yahooooooooooooooo

We still don’t know whats wrong but at least we know it’s not going to be bad.

I on the other hand found out today that I will need the 4th surgery.          It’s going to be as big as the first one he told me.  They have to take out all the  rods and screws in the back (not front ones)  Put in new rods and screws back in and around another cage that has to be added  and then fuse it all to my hips.
Yup great fun!!  NOT!!

I will be in a week this time.  So I still need to make plans for the kids’s  school and sports for them.  Hopefully ALL will work out.

Lets all say a prayer to the Good Lord that it does!!

MRI Update

As some of you know my little guy has been having headaches everyday for awhile  now. 

We have been going to the doctors and having tests done. After seeing the specialist, we have changed his diet and have been keeping records on how often he gets them.  (everyday!!!)

The doctor sent us for a CT scan and said everything was fine but when the specialist saw the CT scan he said he wanted a MRI done.  


Yesterday I finally got the letter from the hospital saying his MRI wasn’t until        

MAY 2.                  

I couldn’t believe how far away it was.  So I called the hospital and asked to be put on the cancellation list.  I told the lady that I didn’t care when it was.  I only needed  one hour’s notice and I could be there.  I didn’t care if it was 3am, it  was fine with me.  I said that my son was only 10 and that he played Rep sports and she said “say no more I had kids in Rep sports as well, I understand”.

Yahoo someone who gets it!!   Then about 2 hours later she calls back to say there was a cancellation that night and could we come? 

AHHHHHHHHHHHH          Let me think………          YES!!!!!!

Wow I was a very happy camper!!!  So we had his MRI done last night and now we just have to ……….wait………  You know for the doctors to have a look.   Then type up the report.   Then send it to our doctor.   Then we get a call and then we can go and fine out whats up.

You know hurry up and wait……and wait …….and wait……and wait

Not so good news

My little guy has been having headaches everyday for a while now and at first I thought it could be his eyes, but they checked out ok.

Then I thought it could be stress from being bullied at school but its better at school now.

We also thought it could be from football and getting knocked around playing but it’s been awhile now that he’s played and still the headaches.

So I took him to the family doctor.     He had blood tests and a CT scan done. The doctor didn’t think there was anything to be concerned with , but he still didn’t know what was causing his headaches.    So he sent us  to see a pediatrician.   Who has changed his diet by cutting out the headache triggers, like chocolate, cheese, pizza, food colourings, ascetic foods and juices, pop such as coke and pepsi and told him to wear sunglasses and a hat at ALL times outside the house.  He wants us to look into acupuncture as well.


The part that has me just a little freaked out is…..the doc said there was something on the CT scan and wants him to go for a MRI.   Why would one doctor say its fine and another say differently???

Of course you all know they never say anything at all at what the possibilities are or could be.  I don’t know which is worse.  Not knowing or knowing what it could be.                                                                                                                                                  So as a mom I’m praying that its nothing but my mind is still going 100 miles an hour thinking…..                                                                                                                                       I know I shouldn’t get all worked up about it but let me tell ya…..it’s NOT easy to do that.

Lady’s night out

Last night I went out with friends from high school. For the first time my hubby went with me. (YEAH) Normally he says it’s OK go have fun they are your friends.  It was so nice to have him there.  And I told him so a few times.

BUT…… he said he felt  awkward!!!! 

Not only was some idiot trying to pick me up (YUCK!!!)       But 3 of his ex girlfriends were there as well.  LOL    I know these women and we get along fine.    In fact we are all friends.    But hubby felt a bit weird that we were all together.   I just laughed.  It didn’t bother me at all. 


One of the women is married but her body language says that she still finds my hubby just little bit of all right.  (So do I) hehe  He has NO clue at all and thinks I’m off my rocker.  But as most women can I know how to read other women, and she was a thinking…….!!!  After 21 years together I feel very safe in our relationship.  After all it was my hubby who said…..”but I’m going home with you not her and she had her chance before and I made my choice!”  Yeah me!!

My hubby is an amazing man!!    I don’t know a person alive that has met my hubby that doesn’t think so as well.   EVERYBODY likes my hubby.  The good Lord has blessed me very very much with him!!

On a different note, although I didn’t lose as much weight as I wanted by last night the girls said they could tell I was losing and said I looked great! Yeah me…again!!!  lol

And I’m still sick with this cold …..so the kid is still going to die!!!

Under the weather

My daughters boyfriend says


In the time we’ve known him (6months)he has gotten sick 4 times with a cold.      (So much for that statement.)

This time he gave it to my daughter….who gave it to her younger brother….who gave it to his brother…..who gave it to his Dad….

Who has NOW given it to meeeeeeeeeeee.  pout pout boohoo.

It started out as sniffles and now is into the whole nine yards. Watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, headache, pressure behind my eyes…..etc!!!

After I die on the sofa, I think I need to go kill that kid!  LOL

BUT….. it’s ok….. He NEVER gets sick.  

Well we sure DO!!!!sick-3
