Great News!

My brother-in-law Steve is now home and doing well. Of course he has to change some things in his lifestyle but I'm sure he can handle it. It will be a challenge, as he is the 'meat and potatoes' type of guy and cutting out the red meat will be tough. He told Rhonda she was going on a diet too, lol. She is more than willing as she too could use the loss of a few pounds. But then, can't a lot of us.

Brad is still having problems.  When they try to ease up on the coma inducing he become quite agitated and they have to contiue with it.  I want to thank you all for the prayers.

Yesterday was my grandson Aaron's 17th birthday. It seems like just yesterday he was a tiny thing in the hospital. Happy Birthday Aaron.

I was going to give him his card (money of course, he's a teenager) yesterday when we went to his brothers football game, but bad grandma that I am I sat here and forgot all about going.  Have a chance to redeem myself tomorrow as there is another game in the morning.  A quick trip to the Farmers Market (only 3 left) and off to the game.

Told the kids to send me ideas for Christmas as I have my Christmas Club money.  Shopping should be easy.  Gift cards or money was listed by all.  Though it makes it easier, and it's what they want, I miss the fun of watching them open the presents.  Still have the two little great-grandson's so I get to shop for them at least.

Well better get the dishes done.  For some reason they just don't do themselves and  the cleaning fairies must be on strike.


  1. Have a great time at the game and Happy Birthday to him !!! It is nice to hear that your Brother in law is doing much better and on the road to recovery, the life change will be hard but i am sure the family will be there to help along the way.

  2. Have fun and Happy Birthday to Aaron..who looks slightly like my family on Mother's side. So of course, he's blazingly handsome!

    We will hold
    Brad up in prayers, Terry.

    (((HUGS))) to all of you..especially Brad.

  3. I misplaced the cleaning fairies too. They have forsaken me.
    Happy Birthday to your grandson!
    Brad will still be remembered in prayer.

  4. Good news for B-I-L and Brad, hoping he recovers soon. Happy Birthday to Aaron

  5. It will be lots easier for both of them to change their lifestyle if they do it together. Good luck to them and to your other BIL. Sure hope he recovers soon. HB to grandson Aaron and happy Saturday to you. Darn those dish washing fairies.
