Stormy Birthday

on October 18, 2007 - 8:43am

We're supposed to have a major storm today. The winds are supposed to get up to 60mph with lots of rain(This is more like what our winter storms are like). The rain has already started and it's just a bit breezy. The power co. is expecting power outages so I'm trying to get everything done before the storm hits. If it hits the way they think it will power will be out for a couple of days. I was up at 5:00 this morning getting laundry and other chores done so I can sit back wrapped up in a blanket,listen to Josh and crochet. OOPS! I almost forgot I need to heat up some water and put it in thermos's so we have something warm to drink later. Looks like it's going to be a lazy day once I get home from my Aunt's house and visiting with my mother.
I may not have a chance to go back online later so I hope that all of you have a wonderful day!!

P.S. At least I can really kick back and enjoy my birthday.

Pre-Birthday Present

on October 17, 2007 - 6:12pm

I received a wonderful surprise from my son Brian this afternoon. He brought me the most beautiful bouquet of flowers. He proceeded to fix dinner for me and then topped it off with a fantastic back massage. How could I ask for anything better than that. He said that it was a warmup for my birthday tomorrow. He made me feel real special tonight.
My daughter Missy is taking me to lunch tomorrow. I love having special time with each one of them.

I've been blessed with two beautiful and thoughtful children.I couldn't have asked for a better day.
Have a great evening all!!

Still on restriction it sucks

on October 16, 2007 - 7:43pm

Well,, today was the day I went back to the doctor to see if my 3lb. lifting restriction was taken off. DARN!! NO! He told me that I can start lifting up to 6lbs. if I have no pain. I'm getting real tired of not being able to do the regular everyday chores. My house is going downhill faster and faster all the time. I guess I just need to be patient and look on the bright side of things and know that I'm home in my own bed at night and I can watch Josh and listen to him anytime of day or night without disturbing anyone(especially late at night like 2:00am). That's the best part of this whole ordeal. I have Josh!! Thank GOD!! I'm going to sign off and go watch the NOEL DVD. Hope everyone has a pleasant night.

JOSH

on October 15, 2007 - 7:46pm

I was happy to hear that Josh and his musical family made it to Manila safely. He's close to the end of his Awake Tour now. That must stir up some feelings for all of them. That's right I forgot they're going to Africa in March. I know Josh is very excited about going back.
I love his NOEL CD. I just can't get enough of it. I'm going to have to go out and buy several more for gifts. I'm so hooked. I get very emotional when playing it. He warms my heart with his music.
I don't think that there's anything that Josh plays or sings that doesn't come out so angelically.

Josh the energizer bunny

on October 14, 2007 - 8:19pm

I don't get it. How does Josh do it? When I was that age I could do a lot, but what he's doing? I'm not so sure many of us could handle the kind of life that he is. I admire him greatly for EVERYTHING he does. He has a real head on his shoulders no doubt about it. If he ever figures out how to bottle his energy I will be first in line to buy a bottle.
More power to him as long as he doesn't burn himself out. He needs down time whether it's to be with his family or to just kick back with Sweeney. I guess it's just the mothering instinct coming out in me.

I could talk about Josh forever but it's time to say goodnight. GOODNIGHT!
