No, Tish.....not alone....I am here, lurking as always!!! LOL

Soooooo...I missed an entire month of everyone's life....Betsey gave me a condensed recap that has me mostly caught up....but, for one thing....what kind of surgery did Ron have, and what were the complications??? All I had to do was read NG Tube and I got woozy!!! Been there, done that, twice in my life.......NEVER want to go there again!!

As for self-sufficiency.......My husband was an over-the-road trucker for 35+ years......I had 3 kids, a house on 2 city lots, vehicles, pets, bills....and was, for all intents and purposes, a single mother....so.....I know only too well about doing it all. I was always soooooooo envious of my friends who had husbands who actually parented and participated in day-to-day life!! My sons are those kinds of husbands/fathers....and it makes me very proud of them. They certainly did not have that modeled for them growing up...at least not by their dad. Ahhhhhh....enough whining....... LOL

So, the challenge is to scrap about


FRIENDSHIP

Let's see some journaling! What does friendship mean to you? Who has picked you up, time after time after time, or handed you that football helmet when they found you banging your head against the wall? Who has taken the shotgun out of your hands and hidden the shells from you? LOL

You have two weeks to complete this challenge, and the prize is the satisfaction of knowing you scrapped, lol!

And, what good is a challenge, if there's not a twist, right? The twist is this (optional, of course)....somewhere on the layout I want a yard gnome, lol! Hidden, "yard gnome" spelled out, whatever!

Hey...at least it's not a chainsaw!

I'm BACK --- lord how I love to shop --- NOT!!! AND while I was gone my work came in so I don't get to help rearrange the furniture in the new place or hang the curtains :+) DARN!!!!! And yes Betsey -- add this to your favorites --- I had to put the word "thread" on the end of Rockin' Scrapping Grams so it wasn't the same name as the other. You might as well erase the other just so you don't get confused

HI HI HI HI --- ok -- I'll tell you about Ron and you tell me about YOU!!! I know they found a tumor, large with you -- benign thank God --- where was it, and how long were you in the hospital? Are you working yet or not???

I will make no smart a remarks about people who can't handle NG tubes as I've NEVER had one and God will get me good when/if I ever need one -- but ******** (the surgeon, my client, a friend) who worked on Ron said -- after I asked -- that he had never had a patient in 40 years who had such a time with an NG tube. Maybe you and Ron can compare stories --- I mean it nearly drove him nuts -- well actually it DID -0- he called me a MIDNIGHT one night wanting me to call ******** at HOME to TEL

continued --- to TELL him (********) to get up to the hospital and take that tube out --- RIGHT and while I'm at it I'll have a talk with God about how he should straighten out the world.

NOW what IS it with this sb.com -- does it think it's become Twitter? That's TWICE it's cut me off --- only 140 characters or some such thing? Or it's just being stubborn?

Anyway Pam -- Ron had a subtotal colectomy ... so nearly all of his bowel was taken out -- left enuf so he wouldn't have to have a colostomy. He had polyposis on his last colonoscopy and while those aren't really termed PREcancerous, there as close as you can get without being there. PLUS he had one precancerous lesion (tubulovillous adenoma) --- so he (Ron) immediately said "take it out" -- which IS the smart thing to do but so few people accept the idea. Then the NG tube was the culprit in him remaining in the hospital for a second week --- after they pulled it, he got sick -- so had to have it put down a second time and pump for a few days.

AND I did not bi*ch or anything around Ron or ******** or the nurses --- acted like the sweet gentle loving wife, GLAD to be doing everything of mine AND Ron's --- but I have a strength-o-meter I'm going to be secretly using on him and as he gets stronger, the household duties shift REALLY fast :+)

GADS it let me use more than 140 characters!!!!! OK I gotta go type

PERSONALLY THIS SCARES THE BEJEEZUS OUT OF ME BECAUSE I WAS THINKING THE EXACT SAME THING WHILE WANDERING AROUND WALLY WORLD -- it's time we had a challenge I had not, however, come up with a topic ---- VERY good topic Lori --- and two weeks so we have until -- what day is this? the 27th to get it done? I think that's right. And as we get 'em done (as Larry the CG would say) make sure you allow me to get into them so I can put them all up at the top ---

Hi ho hi ho it's off to work I go --- trust me I'm not whistling or dancing!!

Ah ha....you are all here! Hello, hello. I watched a bit of CNN and then took a nap with the cats! What an exciting day I have had thus far with hubby gone. He just called to tell me that he and his friend arrived and checked in and he will call me back tonight.

Pam I do think my husband was from the "old school" Was not ever really what I would call a hands on dad when the kids were growing up. He was a good dad, but wasn't what a call a hands on dad.( didn't do diaper duty etc) My son's on the other hand, they are wonderful and have always been hands on....Perhaps it is just the times, I don't know! Anyway, sigh....

So good to see you lurking and stopping in...

I know Betsey, I have been watching the CNN news, as well as some of the other news networks. It is terrible and makes me realize how truly lucky I am. By the way, I have had the heat up all day. When the cat is away (Allen), the mouse will play (me). That man is forever saying, it's too hot here and turns down the heat!

It is so wonderful that one grandson comes home in March, and on the other hand, sad that your other grandson leaves...

And it WILL be an emotional roller coaster when the grands are coming home/leaving ---

Well I have had my heat on for over two weeks, day and night.......I turned it off yesterday afternoon because it was supposed to get warm, but by 4 in the afternoon my feet and hands were so cold, even with my coat on......I know it seems silly to you guys, but when it goes down in the low 20's at night, and never gets above 35-40 in the day, these concrete houses never warm up....I was never this cold in Marland even during "real" winter.....anyway....I have lived here 30 years....in this house 8 years in Feb, and I have probably run the heat twice in that time.....until this year...it has been on for over two weeks, I cannot even imagine my electric bill!!!!!!!! Sooooo to you guys it is not really cold.....but I am here to say......It is freezing in these houses....I went to Karens today for a few minutes, and her house is as cold as mine...she was walking around with gloves on, fur lined mucks, her coat and ear muffs.....and her heat was running....and I swear I am not exaggerating.........!!!!! But her house in never in sun, she has big oak trees......of course all the leaves are now falling, every thing is dead, brown and crisy, so now we will have brush fires I am sure!!!!!! ROFL

Allllll of that is still 400% better than the earthquake in Haiti however!!!!!

I don't know, Betsey, that seems strange to me, also. But then again...the war in Afghanistan is not the war in Iraq, strange though it may seem!

Darn it -- you just used up all my little one liners in your explanation I know, I know you've lived where it's really cold so I really can't give you grief --- and actually, it was warmer HERE today than in Flordia or so it sounds -- we got to 40 ---

Well, I do know Maddie's mama. She'll sit down, sift through all the information she has until she's satisfied. No matter what, she knows how Paul and I feel, no matter how ugly things may get between her and Jai. I'll call either one of them out for stupidity. Madison comes first, and I'd have them both locked up before I'd let anything bad happen to her. And she knows, too, that if Jai were to ever lay a hand on her (Stacey) in anger, I'd call the police myself.

Yeehaw! Ok, I just checked the download count on my new kit! I'm up to 205 downloads, which is double what I expected. But the kicker is, I got 10 comments on 4shared! THAT has NEVER happened!

Ann...check out www.ecrater.com and let me know what you think. I haven't really checked it out, can't keep my attention in one place today.

Well no doubt Stacey knows that you care about her -- and that helps so much. Second -- is it good or bad the number of comments you've received??? Do people usually 'yes' comment or 'no' comment?

AND -- ecrater -- I went and looked -- sounds too good to be true -- but will go in and read and see what the catch is --- I do know tho that I've heard people mention it -- and I don't remember getting bad vibes when you said it.

Just droppin off a msg.

I got a call from JoJo today. she is still struggling but says it is getting better. She finally got a phone so maybe she will be able to keep in touch with us. She is still not sure when she will get internet back again, but she says she misses us all and hopes to be back sometime.

Good morning all you good people! Coffee is ready! Smells so good too!

Lori, do you have to join 4 Shared to leave comments? I tried to leave you a comment on your blog itself, but I don't think it took! Hooray on all your comments and downloads! That was a great kit by the way...

Betsey I can't imagine what our electric bill would be if we had electric heat in this old house! The oil is bad enough. I hope you warm up today! I hate being cold. When our kids were growing up, they slept upstairs (no heat up there). They love to tell stories of getting up in the am and seeing their breath!!!

Looks like Annie was on a roll last night cranking out the layouts. I am going at my usual snail pace.

Allen was gone last night and I tossed and turned all night. I woke up once to the sound of a bunch of coyotes howling. Now that is a very eerie sound in the middle of the night! Actually at first I thought it wolves.

Coffee is ready so I will grab a cup and veg for awhile.

Oh I am so glad to hear that CC heard from Jojo!!!!

Good morning everyone. I think we are supposed to have a heat wave today!!! Maybe upper 30's!!! Yay!!!
I just got an e-mail from my brother. My nephew is being deployed to Haiti. Putting off his deployment to Afghanistan for a few months. Things just look sooooo devastating over there in Haiti. I feel so sorry for those people.

Annie was busy last night with her wonderful los. Glad to see she is settling back in to normalcy.

CC, thanks for the update from JoJo. I wish her the best.

Thanks for the coffee, Tish. Really good this morning!

Well there is hope for this gal anyway....common sense does prevail.,........once again. Rare these days but glad in this case it has happened so quickly!!!!! Good for her!!!!!!

Good Morning ladies.........I am warmer this AM, it is probably about 45 at my house, which quite frankly feels like warm weather at this point.

Tish I am laughing talking about your kids sleeping with no heat......I grew up in Michigan, and slept with my window open at night even in the winter, and many mornings I could see my breath and in those days it was invigorating.....Now it is just durn cold!!!!!! We also walked to school everyday in snow, etc........You had to live more than 5 miles from school before there were busses........Imagine that!!!!

Morning, morning, morning! I won't say good, since I have to work, lol.

Sandie, I'm glad your nephew is being sent to Haiti, rather than Afghanistan right now. Those poor people need HELP!

Ann, the comments on 4shared are "thank you's"...and I usually only get 2 or 3. It seems the more people are impressed with a kit, the more likely they are to comment. Obviously, most people don't bother, regardless. But I've only seen double-digit comment numbers on some of the better known designers' stuff. So it's definitely a good thing. And Tish, I don't know if you have to sign up with 4shared to comment, or not.

And CC heard from JOJO! Wonderful! Things are looking up for her, finally!

You know what.....I have a feeling that Marc may also go to Haiti, since he is a fuel s pecialist......in fact Karen called me last night and asked that very thing......His unit is a support unit and she thinks the same thing.....we are waiting to hear!!!!!!!

Good morning Sandie......yes....that would almost be a heat wave here too!!!!! I may get up to 58 here today....I can live with that for sure!!!!!

Yeah, I do remember her saying she'd be gone a couple of days. So we have to wait and see if Lesley finds us.

Tish, I checked, and your comment didn't "take", as you had said. But I did see that the post was picked up by 3 different sites listing freebies, so that's a good thing. Especially since one of them, the lady hand-picks what she posts, rather than having some search engine do it for her. Although, with her hand picking, who knows when she'll post one of my kits again. I really need to get into other blogs and start trading links and what-not, so I can get higher on the list at digifree, and so I'll get noticed.

Weather...it's currently 11 here, but it's supposed to get up to mid-30's today, and possibly mid-40's by Monday.

I'm apparently getting sick again. as I can't get warm for the life of me. I expect some back problems and trouble with my legs in the next few days. Ah well...such is life.

Lori, I enjoy looking at blogs like yours and visiting the other blogs to see what is going on in the digi world. I will have to go back to your blog again today to see if I can get a comment to post.

Have you ever heard of Etsy.com? This looks like a good place to sell handmade items (thinking of your candles and Betsey's). My dil, Melissa, told me about it one day this week. She has a store in there now. (I guess you call it a store). She is quite crafty and is looking for ways to earn some extra money. They really need it. Well who doesn't today?

Hope you aren't getting sick. I have a headache right in the back of my head this morning. I finally gave in and took two tylenol. Hate it when I get headaches in the back of my head/neck, they hang on for days.

Betsey and Sandi, I see where lots of military are on their way to Haiti...Marines, Army and Navy Ships to help in the relief effort.

Hope everyone finds their way here....I do remember Lesley was going to be gone. Char found us...and CC.....and guess what, if I could find my way in here...anyone can!!!

Go away headache, I need to scrap and I need to check the instructions out on your challenge Lori!

Good morning everyone!!! So at 62 I still blow Tishie away -- that's a good thing -- but at least my decisions are a bit better than during my 20s --- well then again, maybe not.

So do we all have our bushy tails movin' this morning? I am going to try to scrap ALLLLLLL day -- have two docs to do after supper --- but am going to see if I can just FOCUS and have an entire day to scrap ----!

I'm starting to turn the news on first thing each morning, even before coffee, since this disaster struck Haiti. This is so so so awful. I think what they with your nephew, switching him to Haiti, should be done with LOTS of our soldiers -- (and the rest brought home to provide HOMEland security --- ok ok --- everyone take a big sigh of relief --- I'm not getting out my soapbox -- yet :+)

OK now WHAT program are you using for your digi, Sandie??? PSE?? I just love how your digi layouts are soooo great ---

YES -- you need to start swapping links --- AND --- I really really really think you should look into selling these kits. I had promised myself a shopping trip once I got all of these elements sorted AGAIN --- and last night I was going from store to store -- and I am so sick of paper, flowers, ribbons, frames, strings ---- your's are so much better --- I love the Twilight Scraps ones but even those are starting to be repeats. GET BUSY woman --- and I've never been able to leave a thank you on your downloads either --- I tried and it doesn't stay either -- I bet we do have to join 4 Shared ----

Morning --- glad our southern belle is not gonna freeze --- they were showing some of the ruined citrus crop yesterday --- sure don't want YOUR insides to crstalize :+)

It started melting here yesterday -- supposed to be up to 40 here today --- and they are even calling for RAIN (yes RAIN) next week! They say we are still supposed to get "the big one" (blizzard) the end of the month -- but if we could at least get rid of everything we've got so far it would make another storm at least doable.

Yes, nice to know things are improving for JoJo. I may try giving her a call today too.

Whew, I was wondering when Annie was going to start nagging you Betsey!!!!!

It has warmed up to 23 degrees so I shall don my coat, cap and gloves and walk to the mailbox, pick up the mail, then walk to the box with the newspaper...that's a lot of walking! Should take me all of four minutes!

I was thinking the same thing about the military going to Haiti. Safer than Afghanistan and Iraq.. but oh it will be so hard, I am sure to see all the devastation!!

Ok, Oh guess what I scrapped this morning...One whole page....My oldest grandchildren when they were little!

Good morning. Nice and almost warm here. 45 and partly cloudy...looks pretty much all cloudy to me and a light drizzle.

Finally heard from teh docs nurse and she says that nothing showed up on the ultrasound and it's probably just small fat deposits, oh yippee. Also tendinitus and can have physical therapy for that if I want. MRI showed slight tendon tear and cartilage loss and I can have PT on that too if I so desire. Ok then , terrible pain and all I get is more pain from PT? I think not. I'd be freaking living at the place, PT for left elbow and wrist, PT for bursitis and PT for knee. Just shoot me!!

So I am in a pizzed off mood for sure. But I shall be happy to be alive and not in Haiti.

Did have my toes done yeterday and she put Koi fish on my big toes, they are freaking amazing!

How's St. Ron??

cc thanks for the update on jojo.

Betsey hope you warm up soon. Do you have an electric blanket?

ROFL.....Char.....I live in Florida.......why in the world would I need an electric blanket?????? I am not sure they even sell them here!!!!!!!

If I had brought mine from MAryland.....it would have been 31 years in the linen closet stored right next to my ice fishing gear!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously.....I have never needed one before...and actually I have a down comforter....in a duvet cover, and it is warm as toast in my bed.....its the getting out that is a problem.....although......we are actually warm here today.....it is 57 at my house....it is warmer outside than inside.......!!!!!!

You girls have been busy....actually I finished one too.......but also have been out to Office Depot to fax more student loan stuff for my dgd Amanda.......I will not even go into that debacle..........suffice to say......they are now at the top of my STUPID list!!!!!! They are trying to make her start paying one of her loans back because last Dec., not this past, but 08 she got her AA credits from the community college and immediately registered at USF (University of South Florida)!!!!! Now the other three loans she has get that!!!! and have moved her into the BA category....but these stupid people, AES, keep harping on the fact that she "graduated"!!!! She has sent the stuff they requested 4 different times, and they are still calling us and now me as the co-signer!!!! I finally took over dealing with these idiots, and had to go FAX yet the very same info they were sent 4 times previously. I still don't know if they received it. I called them from Office Depot, to make sure, and after being on hold for 25 minutes they tell me the fax machine is in a different building, and they receive notices via email.........it will take two days.......!!!!!!!

Now this is after our conversation the other day when he told me to call right after I faxed it to make sure theyt received it......OH don't even go there.......that is but one of the stupid things.......I could write a novel......and you would think I made it all up!!!!!!

OK OK OK I am done now!!!!!!

Oh oh...Char is not in a good mood...... Hey Char feel lucky you have nice toes, mine look like an old lady feet of about 110! Bunions and crappy looking toe nails. There does that make you feel better...I doubt it.

No fun being in pain, I know. One year I had adhesive capsulitis and tendonitis at the same time. I couldn't even zip my own clothes in the back.....and guess what? I did go to PT for that....

OK I am definitely steering clear of you Betsey today too....!!!!! Seriously I hear ya....stupid people is right! Speaking of it being warmer outside than inside. I remember times when they would have the air conditioner on at work, kept it so cool that I couldn't wait to go outside in the sun and get warm... I am glad it is warmer today for you. My toes actually feel cold today for some reason...

Betsey I have one of those little flash thingy's you are talking about. They are really slick! When I gave my old computer to my youngest son a couple of years ago, there were still some of my pictures on it, so the flash drive was just the right thing to transfer them from that one to my newer one (my newer one is getting old now!)

I love good customer service!!!!
