Ring In The New Year!

I don't know about you all but I'm ready for a brand new year. This past one has been very hard to live and I am hoping for an easier time in 2010. I know, 'count your blessings' should be my mantra and most of the time it is but my family could use some happier times and better health.

Kim has been sick in bed since Christmas Eve. She called and said she has started to feel better and is sitting up and watching a movie with Joshua. She needs to have surgery for the stomach opening to be enlarged again and the bezores removed. They said this is an every 60 to 90 day procedure that she has to have so the stomach can empty.

I want to thank all of you for keeping up with me this past year as I haven't been the best blog host. Also thank you so much for the prayers and blessings sent for Kimberli. You guys have been great and I wish you all the very best for 2010.

I have finished two more pages for the Christmas Brag Book. These were more complicated and I was trying some new techniques so they took much longer than usual. I hope you enjoy using them. I am going to try and add a few more so that you have more pages to choose from.

Pages 5 and 6 of Christmas Brag Book

Hey Y'all,
I've finished and uploaded pages 5 and 6 of my free Christmas Brag Book!

Password is yuletide.

Hope you like them!

Kim had a good day except for a heart stopping scare. While she was out with friends today, Joshua's father told him to start the car for him and it went into gear and crashed into a chain link fence and had the back end hanging over a 15 foot retaining wall! This is so terrible because Joshua is only 10 years old and had no idea what he was doing and if the car had plunged over the retaining wall he would have been severely injured. As Joshua wasn't tall enough to touch the gas pedal the car went slowly downhill; God was looking out for him! Why must men do such things without thinking of the consequences of their actions! Joshua's father had this to say, "at least the car wasn't damaged!" Can you read my mind?

Merry Christmas!

Kim got out of the hospital on Sunday but I'm afraid she will be going back in tomorrow as she's been vomiting all day. I left her around 5pm but am calling every hour to hour and a half to check on her.

I have finished two pages of the Christmas BragBook and an alphabet to match; I will post them as soon as I get a chance.

Happy Holidays

Here's to all my cyber family: Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Merry December to all.

Kim is out of the hospital and I will be going up there to be with her tomorrow morning.

Here is a photo of this year's tiny but pretty tree. Personally, I think it is much better than last year's!

Oh December!

Hey Y'All,

Thought December was going to be a better month but Kim's feeding tube sight has become infected again and she had to be hospitalized last night. She had been on antibiotics since last Friday but they weren't working so they are double whammying her system with another type through an IV. Her sugar levels have been too high to register on the hospital's glucose meter and they will probably move her into the CCU tonight. She is keeping a good outlook (as usual) on life and trying to be positive about her healthcare. I don't know how she does it.

I have been doing little odds and ends for her new apartment, like a decorated lampshade; toss pillow covers; placemats, kitchen curtains, tablecloth and cover. After all my years at the sewing machine I had my first mishap: I stitched into my finger. Ouch! It is still very, very sore. That's what I get for trying to finish up the placemats too fast. We still need to do the bedrooms but the Living Room and Kitchen are almost finished. We are carrying sunshine yellow throughout, for continuity, and using black/white in the living room, navy/white in the kitchen, pastel blue/white in the master bedroom and bath, and primary colors in Joshua's room.

I'm off to fix some supper. Hope all is well for all of you!


PS: I started working on a Christmas Brag Book and when I get some of it finished I will begin to post the links.
