Coming up.......................

Even though I haven't been posting on a regular basis I wanted to let anyone who cares know that it is going to probably be a while before I post again. I am having carpal tunnel surgery on both of my wrists this coming Thursday. I am being told that the recovery time will be a few weeks. I have no idea if I will be able to type during that recovery time or if by typing it will make the recovery process longer. I'll just have to play that one by ear.

I have had this problem for 4-5 years and have been sleeping every single night with wrist braces on both arms for longer than I care to remember. The last time I saw my primary doctor he suggested that we go ahead and get it fixed. I didn't think twice about it. I am so tired of the numbing and tingling in my fingers, not to mention the constant pain in my hands. It doesn't help that my job includes typing....lots of typing. I mentioned this in a post a couple of weeks ago.

I have a feeling that Joe and I are gonna get 'really close' in the next few weeks since I will not have the use of both hands for at least a few days. Oh my.......I will be so happy when this is behind me. But it is something that has to be done so I have decided to dig my heels in and get it done.

Until then my friends......behave yourselves!

We dodged the bullet

This time that is. The Weather Channel was calling for ice and snow in this area. Needless to say we are glad that it has NOT come. We have already had our ice storm 2 years ago and we DON'T WANT ANOTHER ONE! It is raining cats and dogs outside right now and I welcome the rain. Anything is better than ice and snow.

Springfield, MO where my precious daughter is living, is expecting over 15" of snow today and tonight. I am thankful that she is with family that will make sure she is ok.

Look what we could have received


Folks around these parts will never forget the Ice Storm of 2009. It was HORRIBLE! No power for 10+ days for our family. No cellphone service for days. It was like we were living 150 yrs ago. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. I know that Chicago and St. Louis got a lot of snow but I seriously don't think anything can compare to what West Kentucky got in 2009. I am so thankful that all we got this time was some rain.




I miss my Annie so much.



Yes....we dodged the bullet. That's for sure!
