Ladies Retreat

I just got back yesterday afternoon from a Ladies Retreat at our church campground.
It was very good, and the speakers were awesome!
My mom, Katie and I had to sing Friday morning...we were so nervous! Thankfully, we made it through the song just fine, and many told us that we were anointed while singing, so that's a good thing.
I especially enjoyed spending quality time with my sister and a couple of other friends.
And guess what? I can move my neck with no pain! God is good!
I'm very thankful.

Hope you all had a marvellous weekend.

A Medical Update

For those of you who are interested, my gallbladder is doing much, much better! As long as I stick pretty closely to this no-fat diet my friend (a doctor) has me on, I do alright. If I want to eat ice cream, I now know this: Take a Zantac first, otherwise I will be in major pain.
I AM getting rather sick of soup and ramon noodles, but have lost a few pounds in the process, and am happy about THAT small victory.

In other news, I stretched my arms above my head this morning and heard some nasty pops coming from my neck and shoulder. There was some extreme pain and I discovered VERY quickly that I couldn't move my head to the right and had difficulty moving my arm as well. After an emergency visit to the chiropracter, I am able to move some, but still have quite a bit of pain. We will see what tomorrow holds.
I apparently crushed a nerve while stretching, and will have to make a few more visits to Dr. Craig to get this neck of mine back into adjustment.
When it rains, it pours.
Say a prayer, please. :)

Maybe the fact that lifting my right arm is painful will cause me to be less likely to lift that delicious looking cookie to my mouth. Who knows, maybe I will lose a little more weight because of this!

A Real Tear-Jerker

I don't normally recommend movies on my blog, but I just can't help it.

Scott, the girls, and I watched "Cheaper By the Dozen 2" tonight.
I know, I know. The sequel is almost always worse than the original! Not so, in this case.
This movie was pretty much great from start to finish. I even got a little teary-eyed toward the end.
If you watch this movie, you will love your parents for loving you. And you will love your little ones all the more, no matter how much trouble they cause.
I'm not jokin'. I highly recommend this for all of you out there.

Don't forget the kleenex and remember to call your folks to tell them you love them.

Pictures from Clix

Okay. I have finally scanned in the photos taken at Clix Studio. Now you all can really see what an awesome job they did!
Let me know what you think. :)
Personally, I can't get over how cute my kids are! (or, rather, WERE, on that day.)

Just An Update

Sorry I haven't been around much.
I've been a little bit sick. Apparently I'm having some gallbladder trouble, and have been feeling a little under the weather.
Our great friend, Tammer, has me on this horrible bland diet. Soup, bread, veggies and fruit. Maybe I'll lose a few pounds.
The diet has helped a little. I'm not feeling nearly as much pain or nausea, so that's a good thing.

The girls are doing well...happy to be playing and staying home.
I hope you all are well.

Take care and say a prayer that this gallbladder stuff clears up, please!

Sad News

Well, thanks to you all for voting for the girls. Sadly, neither one of them made it into the top 16 finalists. Ah well. There's always next time, right?
