Going Under...

... the knife, that is. Monday is my surgery. I will be in the hospital at least 3 days. I am anxious to get there and get it over with so that I can start healing. Not looking forward to the pain, but I know it will get better.

Please pray for me and my family. Kevin finally realized he may have to go to the grocery store in the next couple of weeks by himself. Yes, somehow this is still about him. Men.

A fall day on the farm

I just love this time of year. It is spectacular around our acres. God did a good job this year.

The end of an era

My grandma has decided that she is not strong enough to live alone anymore. She is now permanently moving into my aunt and uncle's house. She has spent the past few winters with them and she is very comfortable and happy there.
But, this is the first time in my life that I have seen her porch like this. There is no porch furniture. No green metal swing. Empty. And everyday when I drive by it, the sight is still surprising.
I have been able to walk to Grandma's house whenever I wanted for my entire life. And Brynn and I would just walk down just to say hello. Brynn has mentioned many times that she can't do that anymore. And it definitely makes her sad. Me too.
The house is being sold. All of her stuff, auctioned off. Such a change.

Just in case we get unexpected visitors...

Brynn made a teepee for the Indians. We have so many of them where we live, you know.

In case you needed more proof...

...that Kevin just doesn't pay attention sometimes.

Just some bullets

This is what has been happening in my life recently:

  • My sister has shingles on her face very close to her ear. The doctor is scared that they may go to her eye. She is in pain and I feel sorry for her. But, you want to know who I really feel sorry for? The prisoners she guards. Yep, she is a guard in a prison and they better toe the line for a while.
  • Someone very important to me died. She was there for me through way too much stuff. I already miss her terribly.
  • We had another LID-versary. 25 months. And really, who cares anymore?
  • China reffered some more kids this week. They did 6 whole days. Like my friend said--better dust off those suitcases. We'll be traveling before we know it. Yeah, right.
  • I scheduled my surgery for my hysterectomy. Tired of being tired. And the pain is just getting unbearable at points.
  • Kevin's Dad had a pacemaker put in last week and is feeling so much better. Hopefully, we are done hospital hopping with him for a while.
  • Brynn is enjoying preschool, but I am hating the fund raising they are doing. I'm already paying a nice price for tuition. Do they really need another $250 from me?
  • I am loving the fall weather. Nice crisp nights. It will be soon time to light our fireplace. Cozy.
  • Hating changing Brynn's closet over from summer to fall/winter clothes. And we keep everything she grows out of in case we get another daughter. You really don't want to know how many totes we have. Let me just say--if we get referred a boy, eB*y here I come.
  • My brother stood my 96 year old grandma up again. When will he grow up?
