2007 - Hysterectomy Oct 01, 2007 - Oct 08, 2007


I cannot wait to sleep in tomorrow. I'm not going to set the alarm, but I hope I wake up fairly early on my own. I want to get my hair trimmed in the morning before heading over to the rental. My hair is out of control. I am thinking this growing it out business isn't going to last too much longer. Yesterday Matthew stopped by Target when he got off work to say hi and he took one look at me and said "What in the heck is going on with your hair?" I guess it is looking pretty bad. It's just gotten out of control. Hopefully my hair gal can bring it back under control tomorrow.

I woke up at 3 this morning with a headache. It is still with me. I was just thinking the other day that I hadn't had a headache in quite a while. This feels like the 3 day migraines I used to get with my period each month. I'm hoping tomorrow it will ease up some.

This afternoon when I got done at Target I noticed that the freeway was really backed up heading the way I needed to go. I took the backroads home and ended up getting caught in another traffic mess. What should have taken 15 minutes to get home took 40. That didn't help my headache any, either.

Cindy it sounds like you had a busy day today. I'm sure your bds will have fun tonight at the church. I'm sure he'll be tired when you pick him up in the morning. Your right about no one coming over when the house is clean. They only show up when the hurricane has come through. We got all the papers signed and she was sending them back to the lender. With the re-fi on the rental our payment will go down $100 a month

Sas and Grateful where are you girls??? You need to check in and let us know how your doing.

Jan I'm sure you have been busy the past 2 days. I hope you get a chance to relax some this weekend.

Scrapper I hope you are on the road to recovery and will be heading home soon.

I'm going to go watch some TV and then head to bed.

Hi Ladies,

I was so glad to see the end of the week!! I am glad to be past that first set of conferences. Those are always soooo busy. Yesterday on the way home I stopped and bought oj and milk, I should have done the full trip but I didn't, and one last furniture store before I had not been to yet. They showed me the table I want! The price is not bad at all for solid oak. They made a copy of the phot and I am going to show it to DH and if he likes it I am going to order it Monday. It is just plain medium oak oval shaped. Small and simple. I know he would prefer cherry, he likes dark woods. I like them too, but they show everything and I don't want that in the tv room. Unfortunatley she said it will take 6 to 8 weeks to arrive but at least I finally found one.

Today I slept in big time. Then I lazed around with cinnamon raisin toast reading blogs. Now I need to get a move on to shower and start the laundry. DH will come home from work and I won't even be dressed yet, LOL.

I have to get him in a good mood. Last night ODD asked me if we would go out for dinner with her and her boyfriend tonight. ( Poor GD is staying with Dumb A this weekend. She has stopped throwing up but is still not herself. She has a cough and a runny nose. I am sure she will come back still sick since he will keep her up until all hours. ) I said yes, because I felt guilty sayiing no. DH will not want to do that. He has a difficult time forgiving her for her choices, and of course is not thrilled with this boyfriend. The guy would not be my choice either, as he is highly unmotivated in his job selection, but at least he is trying to make an effort to be friendly and get to know the family, which is much more than dumb a ever did. This guy comes over to visit with us, he plays with GD, and he has invited my DS over to his house when he was in town (really his Dad's house. he lives with his Dad, but Dad often works out of town). MY DS did go. He said the house was suited to him a nice house, but very messy inside. Kind of a good metaphor because this guy seems to be very nice, but not together. Other thing that DH does not like is he smokes, as does ODD, and he has a long ponytail. Really not our cup of tea, but I think we would be at fault if we weren't receptive to his gestures, so I am going to force DH to go. I will have to update you on how that goes later.

Cindy my kids used to love lock ins! I hope your DS has a great time. I am sorry you don't get to sleep in this weekend. Maybe a nap is in order?

Lisa I hear you about the hair! My appt is on 12-2 and I was thinking yesterday about ways I could get in early to tell her to cut it shorter again! I think I willl have to stick it out as she is always so busy I would have to go to someone else to get in early and i really don't want to do that. I know we had a really nice plan to let the sides grow into an inverted bob type thing and I know she will try to keep me on track but I am not sure that i will be able to stick with it as I really don't like hair that I have to mess with it and I don't think it looks very good right now. To top it all of I had gotten totally used to not coloring it and the whole salt and pepper thing. One of my good friends at school is a pe teacher. She turned 50 this week. We did a whole big celebration at school. A group of students I took to sing to her told her they did not believe me when I told them she was 5o. This is true she looks fantastic and not a day over 35. But then they pegged me as older than her and said the hair was the proof. So I tell DH this and he says, "well you know hon I support whatever you want to do with your hair but the grey does age you alot!" My SIL's told me that all along, but he had never really said it before. Even though I am sure they are right. I still don't think I am going to go back to coloring my hair. Since I am a brunette my roots were always showing in 4 weeks and I just hated the hassle. Oh well I am rambling now. I hope your headache feels better.

I better get going. Have a great day!

Hi ladies,

I picked BDS up this morning. He was really tired. He said they stayed up the entire night, even Pastor. He went to bed immediately and woke up at 3:00. I took DD to have her ears pierced. She was really nervous, but was brave and went through with it. She picked a really cute starter earring. She is so ecstatic. She is glued to the mirror. DH went to race slot cars. He should be home soon. I'm just going to have a whatever night for supper.

Jan I'm glad you got to sleep in. The table you want sounds really nice. I'm sure it is hard to know what to think about ODD's new boyfriend, especially with your experience with dumb a. Hopefully, since he is making an effort to be friendly he will turn out to be o.k. I don't blame you for being wary. I think it's good though that you are agreeing to go to dinner. Maybe you'll get a better feel for him the more you're around him.

Lisa I hope you got to sleep in today. I know it's hard when you're trying to grow your hair out. I understand what you and Jan are going through. There's always that transition period that's hard to be patient to get through. I hope your headache is better today.

I hope you're all enjoying your day.

I got up this morning and went and got my hair cut. She didn't cut that much off, but just enough to make it look under control again. Tomorrow I am going to color it and then hopefully that will make it look better also. I hate coloring it, but I'm not ready to go with the natural grey that seems to be taking over. It seems like it looks good for about 3 weeks and then those darn roots start showing. I wish I could be like dh and get it buzzed every few weeks and not worry about it.

After lunch I headed over to the rental. I was there for 5 hours and I don't feel like I got that much accomplished. My sister dropped by and she got me a little side tracked for a bit. I did get the 2 bathrooms completely cleaned and bleached. They do look 100% better. I got all the walls in the living room washed down. I was hoping to not have to go over there tomorrow, but that isn't going to work. Tomorrow I need to wipe out the kitchen cupboards, mop and clean the sink and counters in the kitchen. Then I need to tackle the bedroom with the blood. My nephew works with a guy that was in the house the night the shooting happened. He told my nephew that some guys came through the back gate and knocked on the back door and "Joey" (whoever he is) opened the door and stepped out on the patio with them. He said they pistol whipped Joey and then shot him in the stomach. Joey then ran into the house, through the kitchen and into the middle bedroom and hid in the closet. They shot through the living room window and thats how the bullet holes ended up in the living room and in the door of the middle bedroom. Hopefully I will be able to finish up the cleaning tomorrow. DH had to work today, but he came over after he got off and patched the holes in the wall and fixed the hole in the bedroom door. After he sands it tomorrow and we put some paint over it, you hopefully won't be able to tell anything happened.

The weather here today was like early summer. It was a perfect day for opening up all the windows at the rental and airing it out. I'm sure it hit 80 today. Tomorrow is going to be warm also, so another day of airing that house out again. It is smelling better in there after today. It had a real musty smell from being shut up for about a month (other than the broken window for ventilation).

Jan I hope your dinner out tonight went well. I hope gd doesn't come home tomorrow feeling worse. Your table sounds nice. I love oak furniture.

Cindy congrats to your dd on her ear piercing. I remember when my niece got hers done, she couldn't quit touching them. It was a few days after and we were over at my inlaws and she jumped off the diving board in the pool and when she came up for air she was grabbing for her ears to make sure her new earrings hadn't fallen out. I hope your bds caught up on his sleep and wasn't grumpy this evening.

I need to go and clean up the kitchen and then do my doggie duty for the evening. I'm sure I'll sleep really good tonight. I'm tired...

Good morning Ladies,

DH and I slept in today. Ishowed DH the table this morning and he liked it. So I am officially ordering it tomorrow morning. I am excited about that. I wish I would have gone to this place earlier so I could have had it intime for Christmas, but at least I will have it soon after.

Well I was right DH whined about last night but I made him go. We went out for Mexican. The food was delicous. They were pleasant and it really was not a bad time. Cindy you hit the nail on the head. We are both wary. I do have to say he was polite and conversational. Definitely making an effort. That is enough for now. If it ever got to the point where we really thought he was going to stick around we would have to have a serious discussion about the job. I think I forgot to tell you this story. When DS was in town for the play we were discussing him. DS and I were talking away and GD was playing with her toys on the floor. Sometimes I forget that she is right there hearing everything. I can't remeber what was exactly said (nothing bad we were just discussing background etc) and GD interjects out of the blue I love,----. DS and I had to laugh. She has never once said that about Dumb A! So I guess he gets her seal of approval. He does play with her an awful lot whenever he is around her. So for right now that is good enough. I will just keep praying that ODD and her whole crowd get it together.

Cindy I hope BDS is well rested today. I bet your DD looks and feels beautiful. That is a great memory for you both to share.

Lisa sounds like you made alot of progress. I am so glad you got those goofs out of there. Why was your nephew there? I am glad he wasn't hurt. Hopefully he is no longer hanging out with that crowd. I am envious of your haircut (LOL) and your weather. I hope you got to sleep in today.

Well I have to get a move on. Unfortunately, I still have a ton of laundry to finish. Have a great day!!

I did get to sleep in this morning Right now I am sitting here with my hair color on. After I get out of the shower I'm heading over to the rental. It's another nice day out It's only 9:30 and already warming up outside.

Jan I'm glad the dinner out went well. That's funny about gd saying she loved him. It's hard to remember that they are like a sponge and are absorbing everything that is done and said around them. I wonder if she ever mentions him when she's with DA. My nephew wasn't there when the shooting happened. He doesn't know the guys that used to live there. He works with a guy that was there that night. My nephew was questioning him about it. Sorry if I typed that confusing. I was really tired last night.

I need to go and jump in the shower and get this color out of my hair. I hope my hair will look much better with the cut and color.

I hope everyone has a relaxing day today

Hi ladies,

We went to church this morning. DH and I are going to go out for some alone time. Were going to lunch and I'm sure he'll want to stop at a coffee shop and have a latte on the way home. BDS is well rested now and said he had a good time and the lock-in. DD was disappointed she didn't see any of her friends in church this morning. She can't wait to show them her ears. The K-2 sang in 8:00 church and most of her friends have a sibling in one of those grades so I suspect they were in early church. She'll be able to show them tomorrow at school. The kids are having popcorn and watching a movie. They are happy to stay in today and hang out with movies and popcorn.

Jan I'm glad you're dinner went well. It does sound like the BF has a better personality that DA. I agree, that if it seems serious then you should look more closely at the job, and whatever else you may have concerns about. I don't blame you at all for being wary. I'm glad to hear he shows an interest in GD and for her to say she loves him definitely means he gets her approval. That is so important. When I was a single mom, I wouldn't even consider anyone who didn't show some interest in my son and proved that me having a child wasn't a problem for them. That was a big plus for my DH obviously. I'm glad your DH liked the table. How exciting to be able to get something new for the house. I'm glad you got to sleep in both days.

Lisa I know that with the color and cut you're going to feel and look fabulous! I hope you don't wear yourself out at the rental. You put in alot of hours yesterday. Wear rubber gloves when you're dealing with the blood. I worry about you having to deal with the blood. I hope you can come home and have some relaxing time.

Scrapper I hope you are recovering nicely and are home by now. I'm looking forward to hearing how you're doing.

Sas and grateful we miss you! Let us know how you're doing.

Michelle I hope all is well on your end.

Have a great day everyone!

I am so disappointed tonight. I signed online and was checking my email and had one from ticketmaster. It was about the Celine Dion concert we were going to next Sunday. They have re-scheduled it for Feb. 20. I was looking so forward to going next weekend and now we have to wait another 3 months. I see all her concerts from the 7th through the 25th have been re-scheduled. I wonder if she is sick or what is going on?

I got a lot accomplished today at the rental. I got the kitchen completely wiped down with bleach. All the drawers and cupboards have been disinfected and I got the sink cleaned and the floor also. I then went into the disaster room. I put on my thick rubber gloves, breathing mask and goggles and got all the blood cleaned off the walls. I think that is the worst thing I have ever had to do in my life. When I was about 1/2 way through, I thought I was going to vomit. I took all my gear off and went outside and raked some leaves for a bit. I was then able to go back in and finish the job up. The more I thought about what happened that night the queasier I got. It's a wonder that guy didn't die. I'm just glad that part of my clean up is complete. I just need to wipe down the walls in that bedroom once we get the new carpet installed and wipe down the walls in one other bedroom and then I'm done

I have a pretty easy week coming up at work. I'm glad, since I didn't have much time to relax this weekend. DH is off Friday and Saturday and I plan on taking a three day weekend and only working 4 days this week.

Cindy I'm sure you and dh had a nice lunch out today. Maybe dh and I will do that this weekend too.

My hair did look pretty good today after my shower. I like the new cut, but after I was done with the goggles and mask it looked like a disaster. I kept pushing the goggles up and they made my bangs flip up. I was quite a sight when I got home tonight.

I'm going to go do my doggie duty for the evening and then get ready for Desperate Housewives which starts at 9:00. After that I'm going to crawl into bed and hopefully have a good nights rest.

Good morning,

DH and I had a nice lunch. While we were gone BDS called us so LDS could talk to me. He lost his first tooth! It fell out while he was eating popcorn and apparantly he swallowed it. It had been loose for a couple of weeks. He's been so excited for the toothfairy to finally be coming for him. But he was worried, since he swallowed it, the toothfairy wouldn't come. I told him not to worry, we'll write her a little note and tell her what happened. So, thats' what we did. He'll be excited when he wakes up to see that the toothfairy did come. He looks so cute with his missing tooth. It's a little sad for me, because when their big teeth start growing in they start looking older. DD was supposed to have dance tonight. I got an email from her dance coach that class is cancelled tonight. Two of her kids have whooping cough and her husband is in Texas caring for his father who is ill. I feel bad for her. Today is my hot lunch day. I'm going to put a roast in the crockpot.

Lisa I'm sure you're glad to have that ishy part of the cleaning done. That had to be awful. I'm glad that your anticipating an easy week for work. Good for you taking a three day weekend. How disappointing to have to wait to see the concert. Something must be going on if she's cancelled so many. I hope you got a good nights sleep.

Have a good day ladies.
