I miss you all!


Hi everyone! I am doing well...except I am sure I have a mild case of carpal tunnel. I should not be on the computer. (using left hand for this) Just wanted to say hello to everyone! I miss blogging!
Here is a picture of my handsome father in about 1949.

ABC check DOESN'T WORK!!!!!!! And other things


Hi!!!!!! This is Priscilla's son al again.(yes I have permission) while posting blog entrees I've used ABC spell check but it's really frustrating because it says common words don't exist.(It wants to change Priscilla to priceless) As for my mom her arm stopped hurting but she's not using the computer because she wants to prevent it from hurting again by using less computer. She often says that the computer is addicting and I have to agree. So that's why she's not answering question as often. Tomorrow's Halloween and no I'm not going tricker treating. I not sure what the point of this Halloween is. Luckily I'm going bowling with friends that feel the same is me. I can't find a way to end so I'll end it like this.

Ma, get well soon

This is Pricilla's son. Encase your wondering I have permission from this blog's owner encase your suspicious. I do not do evil things like sneak on someone's blog unlike one of my uncles. I come with a message from my mom. She's in pain I'm afraid. This computer of ours has given her pain from her wrist to her elbow. She obviously didn't want to leave it on the entree about sesame street. To make it more dramatic I drew a picture on paint. Do not worry about her she'll probably be better by the end of the week but for now I'm writing for her. All we can do now is hope and pray she gets better.

Sesame Street days

Sometimes I admit that I miss having a little one here at home...and sitting and watching Sesame Street, snuggling on the couch, taking naps and reading picture books. I felt much more useful during the day than I do now.

I've been struggling to find my sense of purpose now that all of my children are gone to school all day long.

Doing Better


Well...my arm is considerably better. I've been able to resume most every activity. I must be careful not to restress it. Left hand blogging is very difficult and no fun!
It was a very windy and rainy day. Many more leaves have fallen to the earth. I was up at a friend's house today. What a gorgeous view of God's beautiful earth...even in the wind and rain. She lives on a hill in the country and the colors are magnificant. Wish I had a picture.
Now...I just need to think of something interesting to blog about.

slow blogging

I am having a considerable amount of pain in my right forearm. It is so painful that I can barely do anything. I finally figured out that it is from using the mouse on my computer and typing so much! So I will need to refrain from blogging quite so much. Right now I am using my left hand which is sloooooowwwww. Hmmmmmm. Do you think the Lord is trying to tell me something?

On a brighter note...Jamie and I went out for lunch today. It was so nice to connect again with him. It is sometimes hard to do that in the hustle and bustle of life. Last week when I said we were going out...we actually didn't. Something came up at his office and he couldn't get away.

Junking and Consigning

On Friday I walked downtown with $5 in my back pocket to buy a copy of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I'm tired of hearing about either the book or the movie every time I turn around and not being a part of the discussion. I decided it was high time to read the book. Well...to my dismay, Judy's Bargain Books was closed! Bummer. I didn't have the dog with me so I decided to poke around in the shops...not really expecting to find anything. I went over to Cuddleback's Antique shop. I love poking around in there. You never know what you'll find. I just love looking at the stuff. I hardly ever buy anything because my budget won't allow it. I think my husband would totally freak out on me if I started bringing home old bird-cages and stuff. He doesn't see things quite the same way as I do. They have a pretty big section of old books. I thought, "Ok...what's the chance of P&P being here?" So I looked...and it was like looking through a haystack for a needle. I found it! It was quite an old copy...no copyright date in it, so who knows. I'm guessing 1940's? It cost $1. I was very happy, walked home and started reading it. I just loved the book! I can't wait to see the movies now.

So yesterday I picked up my lovely middle daughter for a dermatogist appointment. The appt overlapped her lunch time at school, so I allowed her to choose a restaurant and we ate lunch together at Denny's. I hadn't spent this kind of time with her alone in a while. She is quite a character and often reminds me of Ramona Quimbley! While we were eating I decided to not take her back to school, but to go out shopping. Went to a great little consignment shop in Victor. She needed shoes and I found the perfect pair for $4. She was so excited that she wore them to school today. Unfortunately, they had no pants that would fit her and she really needed them. Ended up spending more than I would have liked at Old Navy.

We had fun together...which was so good for us. I've been in a junk shopping mood, if anyone would care to join me.

Anniversary


Today is my wedding anniversary. Jamie and I have been married for 14 years. It has been joyful, fun, challenging, tough, rewarding, happy, sad at times,.....overall great. I am blessed to be married to Jamie. We really didn't do anything to celebrate today...but tomorrow we are meeting to go out for lunch.

Martha scanned a picture for me so I could put up a wedding picture. He was 28 and I was 25!
