waiting gets hard

the surgery we expected to happen tomorrow has been cancelled-then rescheduled for next Friday-we were on the road when we got the call last eve-the drs. contract with the hospital had been dropped effective immediately. They reconsidered today and allowed the doctor to do the surgeries already scheduled. Otherwise they were going to fly us to Dallas to the main center. So we have a little longer to wait.
I was hoping to get hopping on getting this blog set up for my creations soon-but I just don't have the time or the energy to figure out how to get the colors and pretty thing on here like all the other blogs so I am just going to wit till my head is in a better place.

Tuesday morning

On my way to Dayton Ohio to take my husband to the Spine Institute for laser surgery. He is in tremendous pain and I can't wait for him to have this procedure so he can get some relief.  We are traveling today partway instead of trying to drive the 5+ hours all in one day and make his appointment by 3 tomorrow afternoon. So we will take off after lunch and drive and stop frequently for him to get out of the car.  We will find a hotel later on and get some rest for the rest of the trip Wed morning. When this is all over I will be dedicated to making my blog a card and scrap place-and maybe even enter some contests! I will be back Friday evening --- till then I wish everyone a peaceful day...

Friday Musings

I am looking out the window at the rain-it seems as if May has become April, if you know what I mean...I wanted to work on the yard and pull some weeds from the back flower bed, so I'll have to see now what the rest of the day looks like. At least it feels a little warmer outside-it has been so cold this week!  We are getting company tonight, it seems weird to say that because we never get company! Anyway I am going to make a batch of buns and hopefully we will be able to roast hot dogs over the fire tonight. I put together a couple pages that I will post as soon as my hubby brings my camera home(it's in the car he has at work!!).
Miles surgery is next Thursday and it can't come too soon...he is having a harder and harder time just getting through the day-and I feel so helpless that I can't do anything for him. More later on today-I WILL post my layouts and a couple cards-I am excited to try to do this as I have never done it before!!

Thursday thoughts

Waking up to a beautiful morning after a night of thunderstorms. I love storms at night when one is laying in bed listening to the sounds of the thunder and listening to the rain taping on the window-the smell of a spring shower is like nothing else!! I have to take my mom in law to her appointment this afternoon. I don't know what the orthopedic dr is going to do for her back-I have a bad feeling nothing can be done-her pain is pretty intense, and of course she really has no pain pills and probably doesn't want any either. I planted the pansies yesterday and cleaned up the shade garden bed and the sunny garden bed. I have to still do the bulb bed and the herb bed (and get some more herbs as they were all destroyed last year putting in the new drain pipe :o(  Last eve we put the 24 cabbage plants in the ground and the creeping phlox, so everything got a nice drink overnight.  I also made a page last night during the night so I am yawning right now. Whats sleep when you can scrap LOL!! I'll be back later...

Sunday sunday

So I found out yesterday that I won a card kit from  It is a great blog and Kim runs It's a great online store with terrific kits and great sales too!!
Thanks to Kim !!  It's finally a rainy day here in western PA. April has been very dry-not a good omen for the coming garden season-we have a little of the garden planted-not much because my planter(hubby)is still in pain with his back, but hopefully by Monday we will hear about his surgery date and he will get some relief and life will be back to normal(whatever normal is!!) Craig's funeral is today so we are going to have a very sad day ahead-May God bless his children and his mom and give them peace.

National Scrapbook Day and a Memorial for a Friend

It's a special day for all of us who love to work with paper, pens, pictures, and glue!! There are so many sites to visit for this very special scrapbook day-hope you take the time to check out all the blogs and companies that are offering special ideas and treats for this celebration!!
I am hoping to complete a page about myself today as the beginning of the story of Me.  I really want to get a special album together for my girls to have when I am no longer with them. I know I may sound morbid, but in the past couple weeks I lost my mom and then my husband lost his best friend on Thursday.  Craig was only 53-too young to be taken home, but God had other ideas.  Craig was a kind and honorable man.  He was the first person to welcome me into the community when I first met my husband to be in 2002; his real grace came from his ability to make you feel like  were important to him.  He never minced words and he told you straight up how it was-blunt and honest and you always knew where you stood with him.  Craig worked hard, played hard and in everything he did he gave his all.And he left this life as I am sure he would have wanted-standing tall and walking into the unknown with his head up and his shoulders squared to the task.  God welcomed a strong and brave and true angel into his heavenly home on April 29 at 10 am.  I will miss shooting the apples from the tops of the cans on the front porch with you Craig.  You are one of  the special ones that only come to this earth once in a while-you will be remembered always by your friends Tom and Diane. We love you....
