OMG Yay!!

I just called Upper Chesapeake Bariatric to make sure they have gotten all my pre-op testing (they are missing some, but I’m picking it up from my doctor on Monday) and I asked her what it was looking like for a possible surgery date (if she could even tell me).

She told me everything looks good, and more than likely, once the insurance approval comes through, we’re looking at either 11/24 or 12/1.  Yay!  I have a potential date!  This isn’t something way off in the future now – it’s really real.

I’m so excited!


Busy Little Bee

I haven’t been posting much because life has gotten in the way lately.  Work has been unbelievably hectic as of late, and most of my spare time now is spent working on my niece’s wedding gift.  I only have a couple of weeks to finish it up, so I’ve been crocheting like crazy.

Now that summer has wound down, and we won’t be going back to TE much (with the exception of the weekend of October 10th – because Bob forgot to empty our water filter), I’ll have more time on the weekends to catch up on housework, crafts, etc.  I have a ton of scrapbooking I want to do – and I think this weekend, before I start my marathon crochet weekend, I’m going to head over to Michaels for some paper and supplies.  Not much, because I don’t have a whole lot of extra cash, but just some.  I’m craving some new paper for some layouts, and I just want to see what they have.

I know that if my surgery is scheduled as it is supposed to be scheduled in November, I’ll have plenty of time to catch up on things then (of course, it will be too late by then to finish the afghan – it needs to get done this month).  Catch up on craft things, anyway – no point in catching up on housework – I don’t imagine I’ll be able to do much.

I’m feeling crafty.  Yep – crafty.  Fall and winter are good for feeling crafty.

Yoinked from Some Random Blog

A meme…I haven’t done one of these in a while!



My new work schedule starts on Monday.  No more trips to Baltimore on Mondays!  Yay!


I’ve been in a totally yucky mood all week.  Like a little black rain cloud is following me around.  It sucks.  I know its because old Aunt Flow actually showed up early, and she reaks havoc with my poor hormones anymore.  Doesn’t make it any more pleasant for me knowing that though, now does it?

I am also really fed up with the whole work thing.  Gah…I wish there was something I could do, but I need this job now, and I need the insurance, at least for the next couple of months.  Without it, I wouldn’t be able to get the surgery in November.

We’re going to Trail End this weekend.  It’s supposed to rain, but I don’t care – we’re going anyway.  I need to be in my happy place, where I can sit, and relax, and listen to the rain and feel the cool breeze and not worry about anything more than when to let to dog out.

I have some pictures to post Sunday night when we get back…some from Labor day, and some random from around the house…and probably some from this rainy weekend.

See you all when I’m in a better mood.  🙂

Bridal Shower



My youngest niece, Sarah (above with her mama) is getting married next month.  Her shower was today.  She’s grown up so quickly, I just can’t believe it.

Sarah, I wish you all the best…may you and Matt have all the happiness in the world.

Just yesterday, she looked like this….


And today…a beautiful bride and her attendants…



Happy wedding baby…I love you.

It’s Mah Birfday

Today’s my birthday.  I’m 37.  Holy crap.

As God is my witness, it will be the last birthday I have as a fat girl.

And I’m having lobster for dinner.

That is all.
