My favorite Christmas gift

So about 9 months or so ago my cd wallet was in the door of my POS van and it fell out someplace I was very sad! Crushed is a better word, most of the CD's were from the 80's and 90's and I just knew I would never have good music in my car again.

Well my sweet Michael for Christmas went out and did what he could to replace them for me. No they aren't the same albums but a lot of the same artists and it was so thoughtful of him.
I give him hard time about Christmas gifts and birthday gifts (the man bought me a rice steamer one time) but this one was spot on!

Thank you my love!

Slacker blogger update...

Sorry I have been a total slacker blogger!
Updates lets see...
Grandma is still with us she has good days and bad but over all is about the same as she has been since she got to the hospice place.

My sister update she just found out she is pregnant! Woo hoo I get to make baby quilts!

Christmas update Santa found our house and left the kids (okay me) a Wii I have been bowling on it and am having a blast.

Snow update we have about 2 feet and the snow plows haven't been out so its scary even to go get milk down the hill to the store. Its currently 10° Fahrenheit outside(-12.22° Celsius) and that it damn (opps excuse my mouth!) cold!

Carin the injury prone update I hurt my back shoveling snow on Monday then Thursday as I was starting to feel better I fell down the stairs and hurt it again. GEEES I am I a loser or what!

Hope your Christmas was grand and you have a wonderful New Year!

New member of our family

This is Bella (she came with that name) Wade had his 5 year old allergy tests and he has out grown his dog allergy. WOO HOO!

On the grandma front they are talking about a permanent feeding tube. They finally gave her an IV she was so dehydrated and we had to ask the Dr to put one in I am distressed at the care she is getting. GRRR! I will let you know when I know anything new.

My poor grandma

This is a diagram of nasal feeding with a tube. This is what they are putting in my grandma right now. She had a stroke but that was in October and she has been choking on the food and liquids she is trying to eat. Finally after 5 trips to the emergency room they admitted her and are evaluating what is going on. The Dr said that its not the stroke that is causing the problems he is running some tests but he said its about a 33% chance its ALS (lou gehrig's disease)that has no cure and she will just get worse. We are praying it is the other disease he mentioned that can be treated but he is leaning toward ALS. I know that most of the people that read my blog are of different religions but I also believe that no matter God listens to prayers. So if you wouldn't mind remembering her in your prayers I would be thankful to you.

They sedated grandma to put in the tube and that tiny tube cut off her airway so something is really wrong in her throat. They were unable to place the tube. They are weighing the options at this point. SIGH!!
HUGS to all!

This made me laugh

So I got this from a friend today I thought it was hysterical, I hope it doesn't offend anyone.

Finkelstein and Jesus

Jesus was wandering around Jerusalem when he decided that he really needed a new robe.

After looking around for a while, he saw a sign for Finkelstein, the Tailor.

So, he went in and made the necessary arrangements to have Finkelstein prepare a new robe for him. A few days later, when the robe was finished, Jesus tried it on -- and it was a perfect fit!

He asked how much he owed.

Finkelstein brushed him off: "No, no, no, for the Son of God there's no charge!

However, may I ask for a small favor. Whenever you give a sermon, perhaps you could just mention that your nice new robe was made by Finkelstein, the Tailor?"

Jesus readily agreed and as promised, extolled the virtues of his Finkelstein robe whenever he spoke to the masses.

A few months later, while Jesus was again walking through Jerusalem , he happened to walk past Finkelstein's shop and noted a huge line of people waiting for Finkelstein's robes.

He pushed his way through the crowd to speak to him and as soon as Finkelstein spotted him he said: "Jesus, Jesus, look what you've done for my business!

Would you consider a partnership?"

"Certainly," replied Jesus.

"Jesus & Finkelstein it is."

"Oh, no, no," said Finkelstein.

"Finkelstein & Jesus.

After all, I am the craftsman."

The two of them debated this for some time.

Their discussion was long and spirited, but ultimately fruitful -- and they finally came up with a mutually acceptable compromise. A few days later, the new sign went up over Finkelstein's shop:

LORD AND TAYLOR...........

not much to say just need to talk to stay sane

So I have a 4 (almost 5) year old that is making me crazy today. His birthday is right after Christmas and so I have the double fun of him counting down to both. Every couple minutes he tells me its Christmas or his birthday. I know he is excited and I will be sad when he doesn't care anymore but right now I am pulling my hair out.
I could swear he is 14 not 4 he is being mouthy and throwing tantrums he didn't do this when he was 2 or even 3 it started about a month ago maybe a bit longer, about the time he started pre-school. I a starting to wonder if he is with other kids that get away with being naughty. He has spent so much time in the corner it is going to have a permanent groove from his nose.
I have threatened that Santa doesn't bring gifts to little boys that do naughty things. No effect he just cries and ends up throwing a fit that ends him back in the corner.
I am thinking I could probably sew a straight jacket with a gag but that could take me out of the mother of the year running and you know how much that award means to me.
I hope I can help him out of this "faze" before I am totally bald.
Until next time Hugs to all,
