YEP IT'S ME..............

Yep, it's me. I am back. Feeling so much better. Swelling and redness is gone. Glue is almost off of incision. I go back to see breast surgeon tomorrow morning at 10am and hopefully she releases me. I awakened this morning at 6:30, got the girls dressed and fed and took them to school. Checked my email, read and commented on a few blogs, and at 12:30 my head was pounding and I felt dizzy so I went to my room and laid down. Jim woke me up at 7:pm for dinner. So since I took such a long nap, I thought I'd try to make an entry before I get tired again. But before I say anymore I want to tell you about the pictures above. The first one is of my youngest grandchild, Adrianna. She has grown so much, and is walking now. Her hair is so curly and getting long. The second pic is my grandson Daniel. He took me out on a date last week and he even paid for our lunch. He's eatting his cheeseburger meal with fries and chocolate milk. It was so cute, the cashier looked at me for the money, and he puts the money his daddy gave him 15.00 on the counter and says, "Lunch is on me today mommom." Everyone in line awed, he was so cute. We get our food and go sit down and Daniel says, next time mommom you can use your plastic, lmbo. I cracked up he was so funny cause he was serious. Lunch was delicious but my date out with my grandson was the best part, oh and him paying for it was good too, lol. Next is a pic of my hubby and his brothers and sisters. From left to right we have my sil Janet, then my hubby Jim, my bil Walt, bil Bruce and my sil Barbie. Barbie has a pic of them as little kids in the same order. She's gonna get us all copies made. I ordered copies of this pic as adults for everyone. Next is a pic of from left to right my hubby Jim has a lil boy, his sister Barbie and brother Bruce. They are so cute. Next is a painted portrait of my hubby Jim when he was in the navy. Handsome isn't he? The next one is the genuine navy picture they take. I like the painted one better, lol. Next is my hubby Jim and his brother Bruce. They are just so adorable. Last is my daughter Emma and my sil Dan. Their all dressed up for a union ball. I love the gown Emma wore. She got it at Sear's for 99.99 but on sale for 69.99. She is so tan from the salon. They had a wonderful time at the ball. I was glad to babysit because they needed some time out together.
Well, Jim's fathers funeral was nice. He looked very handsome laid out in his coffin. Jim and his youngest brother Walt helped carry the casket along with their bil Ed, Ed's son Travis and Jim's bil David. Since my fil was a veteran of the USMC he had a flad draped over his casket at the cemetary. Three marines were there. One was off in a distance. He played TAPS. Well as soon as he started I think everyone lost it and was crying. When he finished, the other two marines folded the flag, and then one of them presented my mil with the flag and said, On behalf of the USMC and the president we present this flag to you. Then he stood up, saluted Jims Mom and walked away. We all went to the church to their dining hall for a very delicious brunch given by the ladies of the church. Then we went to my inlaws house and talked, had coffee, and looked at old pictures. The church delivered all the leftovers to the house so we had it all for dinner. It was a sad day, but a nice day full of family tears and laughs. Well, tomorrow is a busy day for me. Doctors, then off to the school to meet with Rebecca's teacher and get her report card. Then to post office and CVS to pick up my Lexapro, afterwards I'll need a nap, lol. I guess that is about all there is to tell. Well, there's probably more but I can't think of it now, lol. Thank you all for staying with me, and for your prayers. They meant alot to me. Oh yea, there was something I forgot to tell you. Today March 24, 2009 Jim and I have been married 30 years. And if I had it to do all over again, I'd marry him again.

LOVE YA..............................CINDY
