Praise the Lord!

Bernie, my brother in law, got his "halo" off today and moved up to a soft neck brace!!!! They told him that he had a complete break of his C2 vertebrae. It is a miracle that he is not completely paralyzed!!! He sounded GREAT! We are so thankful that his and Katelin's healing is going so well after such a horrible wreck! I feel like doing a happy dance!


I haven't been on strike!!! Things have been going on that were not blog worthy in my know boring overwhelming...LIFE. School has started again and my kids are off and running. 1st and 4th grade...they LOVE it! Great teachers this year...what a blessing! Thursday I will finally start having my new floors put in my house...hopefully some pictures will shortly there after appear here on this blog...although I'm not sure yet how as I STILL haven't found my digital camera's memory card! There have however been small joys in the past three weeks....I've found two new Kashi Bars that I love!...Cherry Dark Chocolate and Pumpkin Spice Flax! I've read some good books...just mindless fluff...mostly Jane Austen spin offs...oh and I've discovered the joy of using lavender fabric softener in my wash...which caused me to wonder...what is the point of fabric softner? Is it just to make the drudgery of doing laundry a little more fun? It has made walking around our neighborhood at night a little more fun as we drip through 25+ days over the average 102.5 degrees...neighbors are using some kind of good smelling fabric softener or laundry dryer sheets and it smells good when we go past their house. Now if I could only get inspired about lunch! I'm hungry but nothing sounds good!...What I'd really like is lunch from a Antique Mall tea house somewhere! :)
