Still Alive And Kicking……

image   This is really what I feel like leaving on my blog!! I am so sorry I have not been by to visit you all and have not been blogging. Once I got away from it, my life just got so busy! Let me just tell you what I have been up to……….And it’s NOT that exciting!

1. Removing a lot of snow.

2. Being lazy and off and on the diet.

3. NOT lost any weight on the (four letter word!)

4. Trying to do some genealogical studies.

5. Researching my aunt’s murder from 1930.

6. Crocheting a scarf posted by one of the bloggers I follow.

7. Painting an old brown, gold stenciled, rocking chair I’ve had from the 80’s sage green and?? It’s a work in progress.

8. Trying to get ahold of Dawn, from C & G design??? Has ANYONE TALKED WITH HER??????? I am worried.Sad smile

9. Checking out seed catalogs and scheming.

10. Finally sick of the snow and wishing for spring.

 

On a sad note, Obie had a couple of seizures we think. The vet claims they are just low sugar/glucose drops that LOOK like a seizure? We changed his food routine up slightly and keep a close eye on him and he is doing much better. He’s a tough little russell! Another sad note…..our kitchen floor that we spent LOTS of money on and labor and so on, is probably going to have to be ripped up!! That’s right…ripped up! It’s agonizing to even ponder the notion of doing this. The grout is lifting and breaking in some areas. We are told it may be something underneath. If there was any give in the plywood under the bucky board, that would possibly cause it. We won’t do anything until spring though at this point. It’s very discouraging. We try not to think about it much.

 

Happy belated Valentines to you all. I sat down at this computer yesterday and there was a big, beautiful, red screen saver on the desktop with hearts and a beautiful vase of roses and a message…..Happy Valentines Day….To My Wonderful Wife….With All My Love….Bobby. Wasn’t that sweet!! It was very professionally done….he made the whole thing himself! Smile with tongue out

Just wanted to let you all know I was still alive and well. I’ll be by to visit you all this weekend…….XOXOXOXOXO……debbie4

Debbie Dawn is doing better but she does sleep a lot and that is the reason she does not answer her phone. She had an estra week off from chemo this time due to blood work not being so good but she now is feeling good enough that may even put a post up this week. Even I get mighty frustrated with her not answering her phone but I guess it is good for her to sleep. I know it looks as she may not be doing as good as she is with her not posting but she is doing okay and will be back to her old self before long....Jean (Dawn's mother)

Sorry about Obie and your floor. Hope things turn out well on both things and that sure was sweet of your hubby!!!

Oh darn, I meant to say that I have missed you so am glad you are back on here. I usually do not comment but read all your posts and have been checking every day. I also check Kathleen every day, not a lot going on there either.

Hi Debbie, so glad to see a post from you. I check most every day.
Sorry about your floor & Obie. Hope all does ok. I know about having to redo all. My whole kitchen was water damaged & had to be redone. All about the same time I was recouping from very bad broken leg/surgery. Thank God for sons.
Great for the v day from hubby. That was so sweet.

Claudia said...

Gosh, you've been going through a lot, Debbie! Sorry about the floor - that has to be so frustrating. And poor Obie.

I had wondered about Dawn - I'm glad her Mom left the comment about her.

Glad to hear from you again!

hey!!! one plank is dark because i put it on the grill...not a good idea! when the fish is done you just remove it straight from the planks and let the planks cool. then you just wash them with dish soap and dry them. you can buy untreated cedar shingles form home depot and use them!

Sounds like you've been living life and life does get in the way of the bloggy world sometimes doesn't it? Sorry to hear about the floor though, darn. Thanks for stopping by to visit - check my left hand sidebar button for some of those recipes you were looking for. :)

Have a great rest of the week!!

Hugs, Kathleen
